* YouLookFamiliar:
** Susan Saint James played an SIA agent under cover as a flight attendant in the original pilot ("Magnificent Thief"). She then made her first appearance as "Charlie" Brown in the series first episode, "It Takes One to Know One". While they're clearly different characters ([[spoiler: the SIA agent gets murdered]]), you'd think Al would ask Brown, "You have a twin sister?"
** In the pilot, Wally Cox is briefly seen as a man trying to buy an airline ticket. In the series' final episode ("Project 'X'"), an EpisodeOnAPlane, Cox plays airline passenger Professor Moses.

* UsefulNotes/ColdWar: Inevitable, given that this is SpyFiction from TheSixties. Al smuggles something or someone across the IronCurtain in several episodes.

Not to be confused with the [[SimilarlyNamedWorks identically-named]] RealityShow that ran on the DiscoveryChannel between 2005 and 2007. That series has [[Series/ItTakesAThief2005 its own entry]].

* ChessMotifs: "The Great Chess Gambit", strangely enough. The episode features Al getting into a chess match with the VillainOfTheWeek, and several comparisons are made between their chess moves and the activities of the American and Russian agents vying for that episode's McGuffin.
