Trivia: Walker, Texas Ranger
  • Cast the Expert: TV reporter Clarice Tinsley plays a TV reporter.
  • Company Hop: The first four episodes were made by Cannon Television, before they ran into financial difficulties. Enter CBS (along with the Ruddy/Greif Company, Top Kick Productions and Columbia Pictures Television) to pick up the slack, in a literal case of Network to the Rescue.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: "In Harm's Way", "Wedding Bells", and "Turning Point" all feature planes being hijacked and going down. Not long after these episodes aired, the September 11, 2001 attacks took place.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: In the last season episode "Medieval Crimes," you'll spot Josh Holloway (aka Sawyer from LOST) as part of a cheesy Ren-Faire restaurant gang that robs jewelry stores. It was one of his first credited TV roles.
    • In the episode "Last Hope", a young Mila Kunis appears as one of the troubled kids at the Ranger Camp.
    • In the two-part episode "Lucas", the titular AIDS-suffering child is played by Haley Joel Osment.
    • In the episode "Right Man, Wrong Time", Mary Elizabeth McGlynn portrays country singer Merilee Summers. This is a demonstration of her singing voice, and this is one of a few live-action acting roles prior to her voice acting career.
    • Sting appears as a drug dealing biker antagonist in the episode "Unsafe Speed."
    • Walker fights Randy Savage in "Fight Or Die."
    • Hulk Hogan appears in "Division Street" as a reformed thug working to help children stay on the right path and be of good faith.
    • Krunk's voice actor Marshall R. Teague reappears as many different characters on this show.
    • Rowdy Roddy Piper appears as Cody "The Crusader" Conway, a wrestler based on Piper himself, in the episode "The Crusader." He even played the bagpipes!
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: Cam Clarke is everywhere in this show. Usually he's just a background voice on the radio or TV, but occasionally he dubs over other characters when they're off screen. One time he actually dubbed a villain who was on screen, which created a huge dissonance the next time you hear the guy and he has a voice that actually looks like it would come out of him.
  • You Look Familiar: Actor Marshall Teague makes no less than six appearances on the show as entirely different characters, all of which are the main villains of each story, usually disguised as different people under heavy makeup. On top of that, he plays the main villain of both the first and last episodes of the series. Not only this, but he also plays an ancestor of his character in the Grand Finale, making him the proud owner of seven different character roles. And he even plays a major villain in "Trial By Fire", bumping his appearances up to eight!
