* A kind of "hey, it's that place" and "hey it's that vehicle" with stock footage of Station 51 and Squad 51 making an appearance post-''{{Series/Emergency}}''

to:

* A kind of "hey, it's that place" CompletelyDifferentTitle: In Japan, the series became Shiro-Bi Yarou Jon & Ponch (Motorcycle Police Guys Jon & Ponch) "Shiro-Bi" is a Japanese shorthand for a motorcycle used for law-enforcing use, in this case it stands for "Shiro(i) Bi(ke)" (White Bike, because most motorcycles used for police use are painted white).
* HostilityOnTheSet: Larry Wilcox
and "hey it's that vehicle" Erik Estrada were often said to frequently clash, and did not get along well with stock footage each other during the production of Station 51 this show. This was reported to be a factor in Wilcox's decision to quit the series. Estrada was said to be similarly displeased working with Tom Reilly, who replaced Wilcox as Poncherello's partner Officer Bob "Bobby" Nelson.
* McLeaned: Midway through the final season, Tom Reilly (Bobby) was arrested for drug possession. This resulted in his role being reduced, with Bruce Penhall having his role as Bobby's brother Bruce being increased. The California Highway Patrol also threatened to revoke the show's use of their badge
and Squad 51 making related imagery, over the bad publicity, due to the arrest.
* RecastAsARegular: Randi Oaks played a car thief named Kim Balford in the Season 2 episode "Down Time" and joined the cast as officer Bonnie Clark at the beginning of Season 3.
* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: As well as solving the case of the week, the officers would typically partake in a 70s pop culture fad (disco, bio-rhythms, pinball, etc.) Also, piles (literally) of vintage 70s cars.
* WrittenInInfirmity: Erik Estrada suffered a very serious motorcycle accident while filming
an appearance post-''{{Series/Emergency}}''
episode. Until he recovered, he literally shot scenes from his hospital bed.



* BoxOfficeBomb: Budget, $25 million. Box office, $18,600,152 (domestic), $25,500,152 (worldwide). This comedic film version of the 70's TV show was lambasted by critics for relying too much on lowbrow jokes. Its opening weekend saw it smashed by an array of newcomers and holdovers.



* TheCameo: Erik Estrada (the original "Ponch") as a paramedic at the end of the film.
