Some Invaders could be identified by what David Vincent calls a "deformed fourth finger". Technically, the finger is not deformed, but immobile, always sticking out. There are hints dropped from the beginning that the aliens are correcting this problem so that not all invaders have it. Toward the end of the second year they seem to have eliminated the defect altogether.

Series creator Larry Cohen said that his inspiration for this series was Invaders from Mars (1953) and Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956), his two favorite films when he was a kid.

The true form of the Invaders was never completely revealed, although there is a hint of it in episode 2.7, "The Spores". Their human forms were unstable and had to be "regenerated" periodically, or else they would die.

Despite earning "hunk" status through his many bare-chest scenes in "The Long Hot Summer," Roy Thinnes only removes his shirt in three episodes of "The Invaders." He does so in "The Mutation," "The Ivy Curtain," and "The Miracle."
