** Lampshaded in the ''Magazine/{{MAD}}'' parody, "The Phewgitive". Both "Thimble" and "Javert" realize that if they ever actually catch the One-Armed Man and Thimble, respectively, the series will be over and they'll be out of work, so when each narrowly misses his quarry the response is actually one of relief ("Phew... That was close!") rather than disappointment.

* MysteriousPast: We learn very little about the One-Armed Man's background, such as how he lost his arm or what led him to a life of crime. We're never even given definitive proof that "Fred Johnson" is actually his real name.

** A more likely proximate inspiration was the 1946 David Goodis novel ''Dark Passage'' (better known for its [[Film/DarkPassage 1947 film adaptation]] starring HumphreyBogart), which also involves a man taking it on the lam after being falsely convicted of his wife's murder and then escaping. In fact, [[http://www.davidgoodis.com/page15/page15.html Goodis sued United Artists Television]] (which distributed ''The Fugitive'') for copyright infringement; the case was eventually settled out of court following his death.
