Trivia
George Maharis walked off the show during the third season during a bout with hepatitis, although it has been alleged that he was dissatisfied with his contract and wanted to work in film, and that he had ongoing clashes with the show's producers. He was replaced by Glenn Corbett, but audiences did not like the change and the show was canceled as a result.

Although the series was called "Route 66" many of the episodes were set in areas in the United States which Route 66 did not travel through. For example, Route 66 begins in Chicago and ends in L.A., but two episodes were shot in New England, one in Maine (Year 4, episode 2, Same Picture, Different Frame) and one in Vermont (year 4, episode 3, Come Out, Come Out, Wherever you are) - both aired in the fall of 1963 and starred Martin Milner and Glenn Corbett.

The show was originally to be called The Searchers, which would have made a lot more sense, but producers feared there would be confusion with the very popular John Wayne western by that name that came out four years earlier.
