[show]Originally the part of Dragos was offered to actor Ted Cassidy who was best known as Lurch on the original Addams Family television series. In July of 1978, In a rare personal interview Cassidy told how producers offered him the part, but because he had first refusals on a couple of other pilot films, he wasn't able to give the producers a direct answer if he wanted to accept the role. When he finally got back to them, it was too late as they had to begin production and cast Sid Haig in the role. They would have had to recast as Cassidy died in January 1979.
- The "laser beam" light that appeared to be projected from Dragos' eye piece wasn't a visual effect - the light was triggered by a switch that actor Sid Haig held in his hand.
