* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Unfortunately, this might be the only other way to watch any of the newer episodes besides the showings on Creator/AdultSwim and Creator/TBS and the snippets shown on the show's Facebook page, as any season past Season 8 isn't available on Hulu, Netflix, or Amazon Video and neither are they on [=DVD=]/



** For his first three appearances, Turlington was voiced by Forest Whitaker. When he reappeared in Season 14's "My Purity Ball and Chain" (which was more than 9 years since his last speaking appearance in Season 4's "Live and Let Fry"), he was voiced by Corey Robinson.



* RecycledScript: The overall plot for Season 14's "My Purity Ball and Chain" is the exact same one from Season 1's "A Smith in the Hand" (Stan being afraid to give Steve "the talk", despite already giving it to him in the aforementioned), but also rips off "Cleveland Jr. Cherry Bomb" from ''The Cleveland Show'' and contains a number of jokes that feel like leftovers from ''Family Guy'''s "Fresh Heir".



* ScrewedByTheNetwork: Before it's ChannelHop, Fox promoted the show less and less and barely announced any new episodes
* TroubledProduction: The writers had trouble coming up with an ending for Season 3's "Dope & Faith"
* UnfinishedEpisode: An idea for a plot was proposed that Debbie would become skinny which resulted in Steve losing interest in her. Said idea ultimately never came to be likely due to one of the showrunners admitting that he thought the very idea of Debbie being seen as skinny would've felt like a betrayal to her character.

** Snot's name could be considered this: his voice actor played [[RevengeOftheNerds Dudley "Booger" Dawson.]] His appearance also resembles a younger version of Booger.

Added DiffLines:

** Season 7:
*** "Hot Water":
**** The "Chuck Berry me over Germany" line from "Hot Tub of Love" had several different variations including "Throat choke me over Germany". Additionally, the song was originally to be sung by Seth [=MacFarlane=] instead of [=CeeLo=] Green.
**** The episode was originally conceived as the series finale simply because they had no idea if the show had been renewed or not and they figured "What better way to end the show then by killing the main character?". Ultimately, the show was renewed and this episode was written off as being non-canon.

Added DiffLines:

** The initial idea for what would be done with Hayley after she and Jeff conned Stan out of his $50,000 in "100 A.D." is that we would briefly check in on how they were spending the money in the episodes until her return in "There Will Be Bad Blood". Ultimately, this was scrapped to have them spending it all over the course of a single episode in "Son of Stan" in order to get away from Roger.
