  • Season 1 Episode 24: Hornet Save Thyself

  • At the beginning of the episode, you see the correct spelling of Britt Reid's name as it is on a surprise birthday banner.

  • This is the only episode where you see the apartment entrance to the Black Beauty garage, as Britt flees from the police in his home.

  • How did the elevator behind the fireplace work after Britt shorted out the electricity to the house with the screwdriver?

  • Season 1 Episode 25: Invasion from Outer Space...

  • How did "aliens" know so much about Britt Reid's house (including the fact that he had a camera link to DSTV in his house)?

  • Didn't anyone notice that Britt's valet threw a "Green Hornet" weapon (the hornet-shaped dart) at the invaders?

  • Season 1 Episode 26: Invasion from Outer Space...

  • When the heroes are briefly captives of the villains, Dr. Mabouse turns from the Hornet to his driver/bodyguard/enforcer and says, "And this can only be Kato." A few minutes (running time) later, as the now freed masked men race in the Black Beauty to catch up with Mabouse's truck, the Hornet addresses his assistant as Kato with a captured Mabouse henchman sitting right next to him. This is the only episode of the series (although it also happens during the "Batman" crossover) in which the error of applying the name Kato publicly to the costumed identity ("the Hornet's man" as he was anonymously referenced, usually) rather than have it restricted to the civilian one (Reid's valet), is made. The distinction was also consistently held to on the original radio series and the two Saturday matinee serials. The slip here is probably the result of the writer and the director, as well as the man who got the "Produced by..." credit, of this two-parter having not otherwise worked on the program and not knowing any better, with the regular cast not really caring.
