** Was originally supposed to be a more hard sci-fi show similar to ''Series/LostInSpace'' called ''The Ultra Garrison'', but [[Creator/{{TBS}} Turner Program Services]] urged a rewrite due to being too similar to rival show ''Captain Ultra'', and the show was turned into ''[[WorkingTitle Ultra Eye]]'', where Dan was supposed to transform into Redman, who was also [[SpinOffspring Ultraman Junior]]. The Capsule Monsters were supposed to be [[Series/UltraQ Peguila]], [[Series/{{Ultraman}} Antlar, and Red King]], but Tsuburaya wanted to do more with their budget, so the capsule monsters became new monsters. ''Ultra Eye'' was reworked into ''Ultra Seven'' and the rest is history.
** When TPS was shown the finished dub, they found it to be subpar, and after failing to sell it to another network or syndication, the episodes were locked away until 1994- when they realized they never got run, they were given to Creator/{{TNT}} to run as part of their ''Toons Til Noon'' and ''[=MonsterVision=]'' blocks (for the former, the eps were edited to be suitable for kids and families; for the latter, the episodes ran uncut).

** The series was originally intended to take place in its own continuity, where the events of ''[[Series/UltraQ Ultra Q]]'' and ''[[Series/{{Ultraman}}'' never took place. Traces of this can be seen in the final product, as there is no mention whatsoever of Ultraman nor his adventures with the Science Patrol, Seven himself exhibits many differences when compared to other Ultras (albeit Taro and Zero, [[spoiler: the latter being Seven's son]] resemble him more closely.), and his superior looks exactly like him rather than Zoffy. ''Heisei Ultra Seven'' and ''Ultra Seven X'' ran with this idea.

* HeyItsThatGuy
** Lots of ''Series/{{Ultraman}}'' cast members appear from time to time:
*** What's Arashi doing in this team? Really, did he have a twin? [[FridgeBrilliance Or maybe he and Furuhashi are alien clones?]]
*** Fuji plays Sanae, a friend of Anne's, in the controversial Episode 12.
*** In "Who are You?", Captain Muramatsu goes home from work, [[UnPerson only to find nobody recognizes him, not even his wife]]...
*** Ide rides in a submarine in "Envoy from Nonmalto".
*** Dr. Iwamoto is now at TPC (higher headquarters).
** Also, isn't the scientist in "The Lonely Earthling" [[YouLookFamiliar played by the same actor who also plays]] the [[spoiler:Robot Commander android]] in "Nightmare on the Fourth Planet", and [[spoiler:Alien Knackle's human form]] in ''Series/ReturnOfUltraman''?
** As far as suit actors go, [[Series/{{Ultraman}} Bin Furuya]] as Amagi. [[Franchise/{{Godzilla}} Haruo Nakajima]] played Yutom the robot.
** [[Series/{{Spectreman}} Kohji Uenishi]] is Series/UltraSeven. [[Series/ReturnOfUltraman Eiichi Kikuchi]] donned the suit in "The Ultra Garrison Goes West" two-parter.
** Dr. Kitamura from Episode 22 and the beginning of Episode 49 turns up as [[ChekhovsGunman that other doctor]] in ''Series/ReturnOfUltraman''
** Chief Yamaoka was played by Susumu Fujita, who appeared in many Kurosawa films such as ''Film/TheHiddenFortress''.
** [[Series/MightyJack Yamada]] played Kurata.
** [[Franchise/{{Godzilla}} Dr. Serizawa]] turned up, minus eyepatch, in the first episode.
* HeyItsThatVoice
** In the Spanish dub, Kiriyama is [[{{Film/Superman}} Clark Kent]]! Dan and Anne were [[{{Film/StarWars}} Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia]], respectively (for a while, anyway), and [[{{Series/Batman}} Robin the Boy Wonder]] was both Furuhashi and the Narrator.
** When [[spoiler:Alien Metron]] returns in ''Series/UltramanMax'', the actor who played his voice in his original appearance reprises his role, even in human form.
** Narrator Hikaru Urano was the voice actor for Creator/JimmyStewart. Urano also narrated ''{{Series/Mirrorman}}'' and ''{{Series/Ultraman}}''.
** When Seven returned in the 1994 video episode and henceforth, Kohji Moritsugu himself became TheNarrator.
** Agira's first appearance had him possessing Film/{{Rodan}}'s roar while his second appearance was Franchise/{{Gamera}}'s. Windam is [[Film/KingKongEscapes Mechani-Kong]] and Eleking is [[Film/SonOfGodzilla Kamacuras]]. Alien Guts uses [[Series/{{Ultraman}} Dada]]'s roar-like groans.
