* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The KTMA season has a ''lot'' of this, even compared to the early Comedy Central seasons. In no particular order: The Mads worked from within the Gizmonic Institute itself rather than Deep 13 and barely interacted with Joel at all (he spent more of his time reading out viewer letters than talking to the Mads); Dr. Forrester was clean-shaven and had a mullet and Music/JohnLennon specs, and for the first half of the season, Joel had a mullet as well; the Satellite of Love looked totally different; Cambot was a separate unit that operated the video camera rather than having it integrated into his body, Gypsy had a much more primitive design (and was sometimes called "Gypsum", and her voice was done by Josh Weinstein speaking while inhaling rather than just doing a rough falsetto), Servo (who didn't yet have the first name "Tom") was painted silver, and Crow had a slightly different body section; some episodes had different riffers, ranging from Joel doing a one-man-show to an episode where Joel was completely absent (this is also why Gypsy is in the theatre in the Intro); the intro used video-generated special effects for everything except the Satellite of Love, as opposed to the tabletop models seen in later seasons; the logo in the opening titles was different (parodying the logo of ''Series/LandOfTheLost''), and the end credits used an instrumental version of the opening theme. Most notably, the riffs are improvised rather than written in advance, so there are often long stretches of silence from the riffers (and sometimes a riff is little more than "oh, shut up!")

** In the earliest pilot, made to pitch the show to KTMA, Joel's surname is Hodgson instead of Robinson, and he was the person who built the Satellite of Love before launching it into space of his own accord. Tom Servo is also completely absent, and in his place is a robot called "Beeper" who speaks in unintelligible gibberish.

** Servo also doesn't appear outside of the opening credits in the first KTMA episode of the series, while Beeper gets namedropped. Joel and Crow (here voiced by Weinstein) riff on the movie without him. In fact, Joel doesn't even enter the theater until several minutes into the movie, and Crow doesn't enter the theater until more than a half-hour into the episode. Servo finally shows up in the second episode, but he doesn't actually enter the theater until after the first commercial break, fifteen or so minutes in.



** Season 1 also has some of this, with Josh Weinstein voicing Servo and playing the Mad sidekick (Dr Erhardt). It's just not MST3000 without Kevin Murphy's voice and TV's Frank.

** Bill Corbett's Crow sounded strange for the first few episode because he was trying to imitate Trace Beaulieu. The rest of the cast told him to relax and eventually, Crow sounded like...Bill Corbett.

** ‘’The Return’’ generally doubles down on that the characters are aware they’re on TV in-universe, and growing the show’s popularity on Netflix is a big part of Kinga’s motivation. But ‘’Cry Wilderness’’ takes a step further, with Kinga and Max commenting directly on how hard patching the continuity of the previous seasons with the current one is, and how it would have been easier to just do a full reboot instead of a continuation.

* HideYourPregnancy: Kinga's wardrobe was supposed to be a lot more varied and extravagant, but Felicia Day's pregnancy meant she was stuck in her shapeless overcoat all season.

* JustOneSecondOutOfSync: When entering [[OurWormholesAreDifferent the wormhole]] in ''Film/PrinceOfSpace'', it's first side-effect resulted in [[MindScrew Tom being three seconds ahead of Mike, Mike being ten seconds ahead of Crow, and Gypsy being fifteen seconds ahead of all of them,]] and Tom and Cambot the only ones who knew what was going on. Tom used his temporal advantage to steal Crow's chicken puppet twice and Gypsy's burrito was cooked before she put it in the oven.
