The 'Starsky slowly cruising the street in the Gran Torino while Hutch walks along side' scene is part of the 2nd season opening credits.
Running gag: Starsky is hungry, but–on the verge of eating an extravagant meal–continually gets called away as he's about to eat.
During the chase for the jewelry robber, the Gran Torino has the Mars siren light attached to the roof. In closer takes, there is no sign of the light on the roof of the car.
Nitpick: In one scene, just as Starsky has prepared a large snack, he and Hutch are called away; Captain Dobey does not let him take the food with him, saying that he knows it's against the rule of eating on duty. Yet the duo are seen eating on duty in 99% of the other episodes!
The street bum seen outside the halfway house polishing Starsky's Torino in one scene, is played by series Assistant Director Eldon Burke.
Ann Foster (Abigail) is credited for appearing in this story, but her scene was actually cut from the final edit of the episode.
