[show]There is a running gag regarding the Taylor's neighbor, Wilson; his face is always concealed from about the nose down (except in one episode where the top half of his face is covered with paper mache). In most episodes, Wilson was being shot from behind a fence, but in later episodes where he got out more often, camera shots, actor movements, and prop placements were carefully orchestrated so that his full face was not revealed. In fact, during all the curtain calls for the show (except the series finale curtain call, where his entire face was shown), actor Earl Hindman, who played Wilson, would bring a miniature picket fence to hold in front of his face so that it would remain hidden from view.
- Stephen Tobolowsky was the original choice to play Al Borland; but due to a commitment to a film that Tobolowsky was acting in, Richard Karn got the part of Al after filming four episodes.
