Tim Dunigan portrayed Face in the pilot The A-Team: Mexican Slayride (1983). The role was soon recast with Dirk Benedict playing the part, because Dunigan was deemed "too young and too tall."

Throughout the series, several actors play several different characters, with minimal attempt at disguising this.
The episodes broadcast in Germany on the commercial network RTL were heavily cut with regards to violence and 'imitable techniques' (such as improvising weapons and explosives). Also, the opening credits for all episodes were based on the version originally used for the 5th season, including the unpopular remix of the opening song. The first season episodes broadcast on the public network ARD, however, were completely uncut and featured the original opening credits.
