** There's also the Peanuts character 5, which is actually short for 555. But it's not the phone prefix; his last name is the family [=ZIP=] code, 95472. (He has older sisters named 333 and 444, so 555 was simply next in sequence.)

* A "[=KL5=]" phone number can be seen on a background poster in ''NedsDeclassifiedSchoolSurvivalGuide'', raising the question of how many members of the target demographic would even ''recognize that as being a phone number''.

** The episode "Tiny Toon Music Television" featured one of these at one point. However, it was a toll-free 555 number, and was made right around when toll-free 555 numbers were made available publicly. It went to an "adult entertainment" line, and the episode was removed from rotation for a time. Some edits just removed the number from the segment (which produces a minor PotHole as the characters refer to a supposedly onscreen number), while others removed the entire segment that had the number.
