In 1983, Mickey and Billy filmed a pilot for a potential spin-off of Simon & Simon. After spending $14 million and killing three stuntmen (not during stunts: Mickey choked them all one day), the pilot was never aired.
- All car chases end in Mickey sending the car hurtling off a cliff, causing the summer tour to be cancelled.
- At least two or three times an episode, badges and guns had to be handed over to the angry black Captain, who is played by Merl.
- Garcia played the Huggy Bear character, Sleepy Bear.
- Each episode contains a drum segment of–minimum–30 minutes.
