* MushroomSamba: In one episode, Hammer hallucinates that his gun is actually talking to him, and the barrel even moves like a mouth. That episode, where everyone in the precinct gets a virus that makes them hallucinate, also includes Doreau thinking she's Jane (of ''Tarzan'' fame), Majoy feeling up a [[FanService buxom woman in a swimsuit]], and Daley thinking that she's a ballerina.

Added DiffLines:

** The episode "Last of the Red-Hot Vampires," which features an {{Expy}} of famed actor Vincent Price (named Vincent Lagarski) as one of the main protagonists, ends with the credit "In Memory of Mr. Blasko". This is a reference to well-known film vampire, Bela Lugosi's real-life surname.

The series received critical acclaim, but struggled in the ratings, largely due to its numerous time slot shifts. (It didn't help that at one point, the show competed against ''Series/{{Dallas}}'' and ''Series/MiamiVice'' on Friday nights.) Even so, ''Sledge Hammer!'' attracted up to nineteen million viewers who followed the show religiously, along with a very abbreviated ComicBook series from MarvelComics. Despite a season finale that [[KillEmAll ended with a nuclear explosion]], ABC changed its mind and renewed the show for a second season. The second season suffered from another horrible time slot (against ''Series/TheCosbyShow'') and a reduced budget.

-->"I would like to address that particular stereotype if I may. Now, your stereotypical donut is nothing but dough and sugar fried in fat, am I right? Now that fat gums up your arteries and goes to your brain, and you turn liberal. And the next thing you know, Barry Manilow is on the turn-table and you're not going to work and you're voting for gun control. You see what I'm saying? You see the connection? That's why I eat granola."

* {{Expy}}: Of ''Series/GetSmart'', a childhood favorite of creator Alan Spencer. The shows even share one episode plot line ... Sledge/Max get fired from the police force/Control and decide to open a detective agency leading to Humphrey Bogart jokes (Max imitating him, Sledge seeing him).
