** Over the years, Creator//RikMayall and Adrian Edmondson repeatedly considered to return as their Bottom characters. According to Edmondson, one of those ideas involved an elderly Richie and Eddie living in a retirement home, "[where] we will be hitting each other with colostomy bags". This idea never came to fruition when Mayall died in 2014.

* ActorSharedBackground: There was a recurring gag in the show, which Eddie was asked if he was related to Adolf Hitler and Eddie would reply "Yes!" and had thought that his mother's name was Adolf, although Eddie had been abandoned as a baby. In real-life, Adrian Edmondson's father was named Adolf.



* DyeingForYourArt: Ade Edmondson shaved his head to play Eddie.



* ThrowItIn: Rik Mayall accidentally hit Adrian with a GroinAttack on ''The Big Number 2'' stage show. Adrian's next line is "It's alright Richie, I have 3 fucking kids already."

to:

* OutOfOrder: The third episode, "Contest", The noticeable differences in the set with the organ being on the "fourth" wall, stairs opposite way, and the fact Richie has shorter hair than usual as well as Eddie visibly showing hair and missing his sideburns indicate that this episode was filmed much earlier than the other episodes in the series.

Added DiffLines:

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Nigel Planer was offered the role of Spudgun, but passed on it. Thus denying us the chance of a ''Series/TheYoungOnes'' reunion.
** There were plans for a fourth season, which would have continued by revealing that Richie and Eddie getting shot by the Anti-Terrorism Squad at the end of 'Carnival' was a dream (mocking ''Series/{{Dallas}}). Another option was to have Richie and Eddie simply survive their shot-wounds, and let the show continue as if nothing has happened.

* WorkingTitle: Adrian Edmondson and Creator/RikMayall originally planned to call the series ''Your Bottom'' - so that viewers would be heard to say such things as, "I saw Your Bottom on television last night".

* ActingForTwo: Technically it's one on-screen role and one voice role, but Kevin Allen plays the French waiter and also provides the voice of "Cannonball" Taffy O'Jones in "Finger."

* HeyItsThatGuy: There's an incredible amount of talent overlap between this and about six other Britcoms.
** Mostly the overlap is between this show and ''Series/RedDwarf'', likely due to both having Ed Bye as producer/director.
** Averted (for most viewers at least) with Robert Llewelyn's appearance as a Falklands veteran, as not only does he (obviously) appear without his Kryten makeup, but also speaks in a very different accent.
** Mike The Cool Person is Dave Hedgehog.

* IronyAsSheIsCast: in the series, Eddie can't cook to save his life (he once resorted to eating lard when he was hungry) and has to rely on Richie's terrible cooking. In real life, Adrian Edmonson is actually a very talented chef who won the 2013 edition of ''Celebrity Series/MasterChef.''
