Unfortunately, ABC canceled the program after only six episodes, with network head Tony Thomopoulos giving as the reason that [[ViewersAreMorons the show required the viewer to pay too much attention]] -- a pronouncement that earned Thermopolous and the network a considerable amount of derision (''TV Guide'' called it "the most stupid reason a network ever gave for ending a series"). Ironically, the producers themselves were actually grateful, as the six episodes they made were already stretching their ideas thin and they knew they'd never be able to keep up the level of quality much longer. To this day the show is remembered with fondness by many as a program that respected (and tested) the intelligence of its viewers even while making them roll on the floor with laughter. The entire series was released on DVD in 2006.

* TheButlerDidIt: [[spoiler:He did]]. But that wasn't a surprise if you read the episode title. ** It would still be a surprise; every single episode had two titles (that read by the announcer, and that displayed on the screen.) ** Of course, said titles are often vague and tend to have little to do with the episode...

* DVDCommentary: Unfortunately the commentary for the DVD release of ''PoliceSquad'' is pretty boring - they hadn't seen the series for a while and spend more time laughing at the jokes and saying how wet behind the ears they were than letting you know anything interesting. They only offer it on three out of the total of six episodes, too - and not even the best ones. They spend half the time talking about how they had to fight against having a LaughTrack added - and then annoyingly their commentary is mostly... a laugh track.

* ShoutOut: The original newspaper ads for ''{{Airplane}}'' featured a picture of a 747 tied in a knot. The ABC TvGuide ads for ''PoliceSquad'' featured a picture of a police revolver with its barrel tied in a similar knot.
