** Also crossed with HeyItsThatGuy: Here's another blink-and-you-miss-it moment in the voice actors scene. Notice the dark brown short-haired voice actor in the background speaking through a microphone? That voice actor is thirty to thirty-two-year-old Creator/YuriLowenthal, who is the voice of the Prince at the time the segment was filmed. What a rare celebrity moment.

** Sequel: One episode showed the making of polyester yarn from recycled materials (like soda bottles and milk jugs, among other things) into polyester thread that is wound into large spools of polyester yarn. A later episode shows the making of polyester fleece, which begins with... large spools of polyester yarn.

* In some cases where the product being made supports custom logos (like the one where golf balls were made) or specialized etching (where a plasma cutter or water jet literally grinds through steel) the customization will say "How It's Made".

* One episode bumped it "UpToEleven" when they did a grand slam and all four products being examined had a pun: "Today on HowItsMade...Steel wool. When it comes to cleaning, it can be your best alloy. [Steel] Ranges... We have all the elements of this manufacturing process. Carved candles... Making them is a whole new ball of wax. Slot machines... We '''bet''' you'll love this story!"

* AndSomeOtherStuff: A harmless, non-explosive variety. The show sometimes notes that they cannot reveal certain ingredients of some food or chemical products, due to them being trade secrets. The best example of this trope is perhaps the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KY1rE_Ncasc segment on marshmallow cookies]].
