  • Troy Tempest's looks were said to be based upon those of James Garner.
  • According to Alan Patillo, he was drawn to the puppet of Troy because of a squint he possessed that worked well on camera. This was not intended and as soon as he mentioned it to the puppeteers, they rushed Troy through the workshop to rectify it. Alan remarked that Troy never looked so good on camera thereafter.
