- Awesome Music: Ads frequently used the unrelated song "Sledgehammer" by British pop musician Peter Gabriel, which was released the same year as this series began.
- Don't forget the actual theme song, provided by none other than Danny Elfman.
- Executive Meddling: Early episodes had a Laugh Track added by the studio because the executives felt the show was too violent without it. It was removed from the DVD release.
- Hey, It's That Guy!: Sledge Hammer was once a dirty Ruskie.
- The Danza: John Eastman as John.
- Hey, It's That Guy!: Ted Prior (the brother of the director) would appear in the later slasher Aerobicide.
- Keep Circulating the Tapes: For almost three decades.
- Old Shame: While the director doesn't appear to outright hate the film, he does seem completely disinterested in it in the DVD special features.
