Trivia: The Phil Silvers Show
- Beam Me Up, Scotty!: A rare instance of the show's title being the thing that this trope applies to; the show is quite often referred to as "Sgt. Bilko" instead of its actual name. Even the home video releases of the show generally imply this to be the title, with "The Phil Silvers Show" usually tucked away somewhere else on the cover.
- The Danza: George Kennedy, yes that George Kennedy, worked as a military advisor for the show. He was seen in the background for 14 episodes as MPSergeant Kennedy.
- Fountain of Expies: Sgt. Ernie Bilko would be the inspiration for numerous military con-men and fast-talkers, including CPO Jon Pertwee, Torpedoman's Mate Lester Gruber, and perhaps even Cpl., later Sgt. Maxwell Q. Klinger.
- Hey, It's That Guy!: Alan Alda as a young artist, Fred Gwynne as a bird expert, Dick Van Dyke as a baseball phenom.
- I Am Not Spock: Sgt. Bilko is far more famous than Phil Silvers.
