** Originally Panini, who was named Borlotti, had pointed ears and an outfit in which only her face was visible. Her original character concept had her bully Chowder in a manner described by Greenblatt as similar to Angelica Pickles from ''{{WesternAnimation/Rugrats}}''. Greenblatt removed the pointy ears since he felt this did not fit in with the rounded shapes in Chowder. Greenblatt did not like characters similar to Angelica and believed that he needed to make Panini "cuter and sweeter." Greenblatt said that the details of Panini formed when the creator decided that Panini had a crush on Chowder; since Chowder is not old enough to fall in love with females, according to Greenblatt this aspect would frustrate Chowder "in a more fun way."

** Greenblatt's blog includes a couple of episode outlines that were canned for one reason or another. One was a western parody where Chowder and the other kids fight against bath time which couldn't get to air before the end of the show. Another was the story of how Truffles got her mushroom hat as a young girl, including some insight into her species, but was rejected for being "too girly".

** Panini was originally envisioned as a bully who picked on Chowder. However, Greenblatt changed it because he felt the result would have been too cruel. Mung Daal was also envisioned as having an Indian accent, but the voice Dwight Schultz gave ended up being chosen as Greenblatt felt it worked better.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: One idea floating around was to have Mung falsely accused of a crime, then get together with some [[Series/TheATeam old friends voiced by Dirk Benedict and Mister T]] to prove his innocence.
