- The character and show popularized the inverted detective story format, which begins by showing the crime and its perpetrator. The plot revolves around how a perpetrator known to the audience will be caught and exposed, sometimes referred to as a "howcatchem."
- Columbo's first name is never mentioned. However, one episode briefly showed his badge, listing his full name as Frank Columbo. A Canadian trivia game once claimed his first name was Phillip. Series co-creator William Link has said that as far as he is concerned, neither one is correct, and Columbo has no first name besides "Lieutenant".
- Columbo's car is a 1959 Peugeot 403 convertible. Only 504 two-door convertibles were made in 1959. The original was sold when NBC dropped the series, and a replacement had to be located when ABC resumed production. During the NBC years, the license plate was 044-APD. For ABC, the plate was 448-DBZ.
