- Peter Fernandez initially dubbed a sample episode for 8th Man before the series was shipped off to Copri Films.
- Due to changes in cigarette advertising laws in the 1960s, television characters were not allowed to be seen smoking. As this was a major plot device in the series, the show was forced to be removed from broadcast in the United States.
