The A-Team is known for a few things: explosions, over the top violence, cartoon-like action, gold chains and... more explosions. The A-Team was originally slammed by critics for its comic-strip violence and lack of realism, but it was the viewers, not the critics, who made The A-Team a huge success.

The four-man band of Veterans changed the way many looked at violence on TV. With five seasons of action-packed moments, some interesting situations and a few enemies both on and off the screen, many fun facts came from the series.

Let's take a look at a few fun facts about The A-Team. All of these fun facts are interesting, but they aren't all true. Can you pass this A-Team trivia quiz? It's true or false, so take your best guess. Good luck!

Always talk of the violence on the A team. What about the old westerns. What could be more violent episode after every episode. I remember watching Combat with my dad, the classics were full of violence. Nobody gets hurt, they even show the actors getting out of car rollovers. To me the best parts of the A team is Hannibal and his plan. BA and Murdock were soooo funny. All the characters were great. But I’ve never viewed it as violent

The answer that no one dies during the series is wrong. Gen. Harlan "Bull" Fullbright.

#2 Vaughn and Peppard got along well. Adding Vaughn to the ensemble was thought to have a calming influence on Peppard. More so from being (working) actor contemporaries, who earned their recognition through years of hard work. Vaughn functioned in the same capacity regarding Steve McQueen (Magnificent Seven) as well, since SM was also a little edgy (competitive and paranoid).

Interesting! I'm sure you knew Peppard was in Breakfast At Tiffany's with Audrey Hepburn and that Vaughn did Bullitt with McQueen! Fun Fact: Vaughn guest starred in the M7 series in the late '90's!
