- The Character Died with Him: Chico, although not stated until one of the final episodes of the series (when Raul runs away after learning there was a previous "Chico," and Ed yelled at him for getting into his things). The circumstances of Chico's death are never explained.
- The Danza: Della Reese as Della Rogers. Also, in the final season, Spanish actress Charo plays Raul's aunt, also named Charo.
- What Could Have Been: The show's working title was Spic and Span. In this context "Spic" referred to the Chico character, and "Span" referenced the characters' age span. Executive Meddling forced them to nix the title, as "spic" is a derogatory term for young Latino boys.
