** While on a date with Sledge's supposed brother Miles, Dori grows suspicious and mentions Sledge's middle name is Alfred (to which Miles agrees), but in reality this is Majoy's middle name, thus confirming Dori's suspicions that Miles is an impostor. ''Alfred'' is the complete first name of ''Sledge Hammer!'' writer (and future ''Series/TheSimpsons'' writer/show runner) Al Jean.

* HypercompetentSidekick: Downplayed example. The ditzy Sledge does have his uses. He's inhumanly good in a firefight for example, and sometimes proves he's not as dumb as he looks. But its Doreau that keeps Sledge on track and does the real investigative work.

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 Creator/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.

to:

The show was produced throughout the run by Alan Spencer Productions, Spencer's production company, and New World Pictures, an entertainment company founded by Creator/RogerCorman. During the first season, there was another production company involved, D'Angelo Productions, the production company of executive producer William P. D'Angelo.

* 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.

** 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.
