* BrickJoke: The end of ''Final Ark'', which deliberately tossed the brick for Creator/GrantMorrison to drop in ''FinalCrisis''.

* [[DroppedABridgeOnHim Dropped A Bridge On Them]]: The Zoo Crew's fate at the end of ''The Final Ark'' seemed needlessly cruel and left a bad taste in a lot of long-time fans' mouths. Thankfully, this may have been a BrickJoke, resolved in ''FinalCrisis''; fan speculation has it that Creator/GrantMorrison used ''FinalCrisis'' to undo what he saw as obnoxious ExecutiveMeddling. Morrison later used Captain Carrot as a character in ''ComicBook/TheMultiversity'', where he knocked out a CaptainErsatz of ComicBook/TheIncredibleHulk--[[SugarWiki/AwesomeMoments with one punch]].

The Zoo Crew battled both their own villains and ones from the main DC Universe (Starro, the Starfish Conqueror, an old JusticeLeague alien enemy, in their first issue; Gorilla Grodd in their last.) They also met the "Just'a Lotta Animals" ("JLA") a team of heroes from the similar "Earth C-minus" whose heroes were {{Expies}} of DC's main heroes.

After the series was canceled, the characters reappeared in, of all places, "The [[Literature/LandOfOz Oz]] / [[Literature/AliceInWonderland Wonderland]] War" miniseries, which was ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. Decades later in the 2000s, they reappeared in an issue of ''ComicBook/TeenTitans'' (as part of a comic book one of the characters was reading) in a story that parodied the "[[UsefulNotes/TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks Dark Age]]" style of modern comics: The team had disbanded after Little Cheese's death, whose murderer (seemingly) turned out to be Alley-Kat-Abra! This was followed by a 2007 miniseries, ''Captain Carrot and the Final Ark'', where the team was reunited and Abra was cleared of the murder. They were joined by a new member, the non-powered crimefighter '''American Eagle''', secretly right-wing talk show host Johnny Jingo. However, Earth-C was flooded as a result of a war between aquatic and non-aquatic animals, and the heroes had to evacuate it on a "Space Ark." They ended up on the main Earth of TheMultiverse, but found themselves changed into normal animals while there. However, they were changed back to their true forms in the last issue of the ''ComicBook/FinalCrisis'' CrisisCrossover. Captain Carrot has now reappeared in the pages of ''ComicBook/TheMultiversity.''
