* HeyItsThatVoice:
** "Series/DoogieHowserMD"-era Creator/NeilPatrickHarris is Max.
** Creator/CharlieAdler is Jammett, sounding like Chicken from ''WesternAnimation/CowAndChicken'' if his foul mouth wasn't implied (he hilariously dips into Cow's voice in "The Lady Doth Protest To Much").
** Creator/BobcatGoldthwait as Muggle
** Trixie would go on to work as a [[Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove waitress at Mudka's Meat Hut]].

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Fox may have let re-runs slip over to Turner/WB (as this show did air in the early days of Cartoon Network, when it played out like a 24/7 showcase for Hanna-Barbera cartoons, both popular and obscure), but DVD rights apparently not so much. Even though the one that doesn't have it would probably release it if they did.
