** The fact that they piped in content from the CBC in one episode and Earl Camembert goes ''down'' to San Francisco in another seems to point to Melonville being somewhere in the far northern U.S., near the Canadian border, but this doesn't really narrow it down much (anywhere from New England to the far northern Midwest to the northern reaches of the Rockies to TheOtherRainforest). Much like the trope namer, Melonville is everywhere and nowhere.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: Between the hairstyles (Eugene Levy's afro and Joe Flaherty's season one wings and swoopy bangs being obvious examples), the fashion (Earl Camembert's suits and glasses), the cultural references (an entire episode-long wraparound plot spoofing the Cold War), and the ValuesDissonance (Lin Ye Tang, anyone?), this show could have only been made in the 1970s and early 80s. Eugene Levy and Joe Flaherty even reference this on a DVD commentary, while watching a sketch where Dave Thomas plays another, entirely different, offensive Asian caricature.
-->'''Joe Flaherty''': You think we could get away with this today?
--> '''Eugene Levy''': (completely deadpan) I doubt it, Joe.

**In the final season, children's show host Happy Marsden, whose show "Happy Hour" actually takes place at a bar (and who drinks heavily throughout); he treats the bartender as a member of the cast (who always reminds him of last call). A promo shot shows Happy with his eyes closed, seemingly blacked out.

** Goes beyond even that- the cast would sometimes play impressionists playing famous actors in movies (think Frank Caliendo's bit as Robin Williams as all the characters in ''TheWizardOfOz'').
