Tropes featured include:
- Couch Gag: Each opening credit sequence had Toody and Muldoon doing different things as they drive in the squad car such as: dropping an ice cream cone, playing checkers, Gunter opening his lunch box and finding everything BUT his lunch, Gunter dangling a rubber spider in front of Muldoon as he drives.
- The Convenient Store Next Door: One episode is based around an eatery next to a bank. A single scene at the end of the episode replays the entire plot with the buildings' next owners, who are posing as stamp dealers.
- Crossover: An episode of the animated sitcom Wait Till Your Father Gets Home featured characters from Car 54, although only Joe E. Ross provided his own voice.
- Ear Worm: "There's a holdup in the Bronx, Brooklyn's broken out in fights...."
- The Film of the Series: Filmed in 1990 but not released until 1994, the film basically tried to turn Car 54 into a Police Academy type movie. Original cast members Al Lewis and Nipsey Russell appeared as their original characters.
- Hey, It's That Guy!: Muldoon and Schnauser are Herman and Grandpa Munster, while Schnauser's wife Sylvia is Mrs. Garrett.
