  • Fake American: Barry Morse (Gerard) was British. A good thing, too, since anytime a person on the street got too threatening to him for being mean to Kimble, he could switch to his native accent and say, "Blimey, Gov, I ain't who you think I am! Must be that bloke on the telly who looks like me."
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Lots of familiar character actors, and future stars, appeared on this show.
  • It Will Never Catch On: Series creator Roy Huggins initially had great difficulty in selling the series to potential producers. Many of them felt that a series based on a wrongfully convicted man running from the law would be perceived as being too perverse, as well as a slap in the face to the American justice system.
  • You Look Familiar: Lots of actors will guest star in more than one episode in a different role. Perhaps the best example is Richard Anderson, who played Kimble's brother-in-law, Len Taft in the last 2 episodes. Anderson guest starred in 6 episodes total. The last 2 are the only ones where he played Len.
