* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The Force 7 episode. In an odd attempt at a spinoff the episode focused on a secret unit of Kung Fu Cops, dedicated to the preservation of human life, that took on a terrorist organization. It even had John Rhys-Davies as the BigBad.
* EarWorm: Come on, you know you gotta love that opening theme.
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: When O'Hara (played by Creator/BillyBarty) is arrested in "Counterfeit", Ponch and Jon joke about Baricza having to use extra effort. Ponch even jokes that "Bear" has been taking karate lessons. In the the following season's "Karate", one of the bad guys uses his karate skills to attack Baricza. It's such a CurbStompBattle that Baricza has to pull his sidearm to stop him. (One of the few times on the series that a CHP officer actually uses his weapon.)
* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: The series was very popular in Mexico, thanks to the great voice acting work in the dub, and also Erik Estrada's performance.
