* HeyItsThatGuy:
** A large number of recognizable faces turn up in guest roles during the course of the series, often as the VillainOfTheWeek or the GirlOfTheWeek. Among those that appear are Michael Dunn, Richard Kiel, Victor Buono, Suzanne Pleshette, Robert Loggia, Jeff Corey, Creator/LeslieNielsen, Katherine Ross, Elisha Cook Jr., Martin Landau, Burgess Meredith, Creator/YvonneCraig, Richard Jaeckel... and that's just the first season.
** Messrs. Loggia, Corey and Jaeckel turn up in later seasons as well.
** Also, Jackie Coogan (''Series/TheAddamsFamily'''s Uncle Fester) is a cowardly sheriff and a hypnotised Mayor ("The Night of the Cut-Throats" and "The Night of the Winged Terror, Part 1" respectively).
** Yes, that's a young Creator/RichardPryor as one of Count Manzeppi's henchmen in "The Night of the Eccentrics."

** There's an in-universe example with Sammy Davis Jr.'s character in "The Night of the Returning Dead," who ostensibly speaks with a Barbados accent on his first appearance - except that, well... see Creator/RicardoMontalban above.

** All over the place, particularly Filipina actress Pilar Seurat as a very un-Chinese-looking Chinese princess in "The Night The Dragon Screamed," Paul Wallace doing an [[FakeBrit English accent]] that isn't even good enough to be called excruciating in "The Night of the Eccentrics" and Ricardo Montalban as a Confederate Army colonel in "The Night of the Lord of Limbo." (And this being Ricardo Montalban, [[NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent he doesn't even bother with an accent]].)

Added DiffLines:

* AwardCategoryFraud: Agnes Moorehead took home an Emmy as Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Drama Series for "The Night of the Vicious Valentine," although she was a guest star. Then again, the Emmys didn't have a category for guest performers until the mid-1980s.
