* BizarroEpisode: "The Man Who Liked Ants" which features The Saint stopping world domination by ants. Seriously. A MadScientist breeds ants to grow in size and intelligence, believing them to be a 'purer' and more admirable life form cheated out of it's glory by the evolution of fallible and in-fighting prone man. Templar [[KillItWithFire kills the ant queen and her nest before it can hatch.]] It's also a weird episode, because it's one of the few times you actually see Templar afraid and briefly has the heebie-jeebies about insects for a little while following it.
* BizarroEpisode: Early on, The Saint would help friends and strangers. Then he started to doing the occasional espionage job for the government. Then, in "The House On Dragon's Rock", he stops a MadScientist's [[BigCreepyCrawlies giant ant and its eggs]] from taking over the world.
** The ant is, of course, a NuclearNasty.
* HilariousInHindsight: In one episode of the 1960's series Simon (played by Roger Moore) impersonates an [=MI-5=] agent. The woman he was tricking even remarked that it was great to have JamesBond on her side. This was before Moore [[Film/LiveAndLetDie made his debut as Bond]].
** In addition to that, Lois Maxwell (the original Miss Moneypenny) guest-starred in two different episodes during the 5th series in 1966, seven years before Moore would go on to play Bond, thus also making them working together in the Bond films an unintentional case of IWantYouToMeetAnOldFriendOfMine.
* ValuesDissonance: "The Golden Journey" opens with Simon Templar suggesting that his friend could 'cure' his fiancée's spoilt brat attitude by hitting her every now and then.
* Ending Fatigue: The movie continues a full fifteen minutes after the villains are arrested and the conflict is resolved. One US TV broadcast ended the movie just moments later when Emma and Simon reunite at the country house.
