** There are a few episodes from Spring 2000 (the latter half of the infamous [[DorkAge split era]]) that were last aired in 2003 for various reasons: "The Telltale Cat" was seen as too violent, "B-TV: Grace" had a skit that was deemed offensive to the Amish, "Sticks and Stones" might have given kids too many ideas for insults, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking "Career Moves" was just a really weak episode]].
* FandomNod: The various theories about AREM's identity that Alex, Cal, and Sarah come up with in "Grand Opening, Part 1" are all references to the theories fans were tossing around online.



** In the Novacom saga, the writers wanted to bring back Richard Maxwell to be the man behind AREM (a phonetic spelling of the initials "R.M."), but Maxwell's voice actor Nathan Carlson was unavailable, so Robert Mitchell was created for the role instead.

** Also in the Novacom saga, writer Marshal Younger wanted to have a scene where a farmer under the influence of the proto-Novabox goes out and shoots all of his cows; it was shot down when a sound designer protested and Paul [=McCusker=] in particular was concerned about the saga's body count, and to this day Younger considers having suggested it to be an OldShame.

* TechnologyMarchesOn: Hoo yeah. The show has utilized technology in every era, from dazzling arcade machines to pagers and beepers to top-of-the-line "laptop computers" and "cellular phones" to a brand-new computer having "one of those high-speed lines" to people sending "text messages" to [[BlandNameProduct [=AppleBerry=]]] smartphones. Nothing makes you feel old like having a fan question why Connie didn't just call or text Eugene or Bernard about Whit leaving on the cell phones they wouldn't have had yet in the early 1990s.
