* AlmightyJanitor: Johnny the shoeshine guy knows everything and will tell you about it--for a price. (He can even tell you about the afterlife.) Invariably, as soon as Drebin gets the information he needs and leaves, someone else will come for information, such as a surgeon asking how to perform open-heart surgery or DickClark asking about ska (and picking up some more youth cream).

* DVDCommentary: Unfortunately the commentary for the DVD release of ''Series/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.

Added DiffLines:

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Alan North's Ed Hocken is much more of an authority figure to Frank than the close buddy George Kennedy played in the later films. Peter Lupus' Norberg also is not the total klutz O.J. Simpson's Nordberg is later introduced to be.

* BecomingTheMask: For example, Norberg is more occupied with improving revenues on their key making business cover than with dealing with the mob they went into business to attract.

to:

* BecomingTheMask: Any time the cops go undercover, they get a little ''too'' invested in their cover identity. For example, Norberg is more occupied with improving revenues on their key making key-making business cover than with dealing with the mob they went into business to attract.
