** Several of Donald Glover's songs as ChildishGambino have lyrics that can be interpreted, if not outright stating, that he wants to leave the show.

Added DiffLines:

* ActorSharedBackground: A number of incidental details about actors transfer to their characters. For example, both Abed and Danny Pudi are half-Polish on their mother's side; while Troy, like Donald Glover, was raised a Jehovah's Witness. Annie mentions her birthday as being in late December, which might mean that she shares Alison Brie's birthday (December 29th).

* HeyItsThatGuy: The show advertises itself this way.

*** Apparently he teaches Spanish when he's not [[RoleModels commanding an army of LARPers]].
** The actor who plays Abed's dad also plays the principal on [[DuelingShows Dueling Show]] Series/{{Glee}}.
--->'''Jeff:''' ''(upon seeing him approaching)'' "[[RealitySubtext Holy... war.]]"

** The accounting teacher/debate coach is [[Series/ArrestedDevelopment Wayne Jarvis]]!

** Donald Glover (Troy) is from moderately well known online comedy troupe Derrickcomedy, creators of such [=YouTube=] classics as "Bro Rape" and"Spelling Bee".
*** For alternative hip-hop fans, it's more of a HeyItsThatVoice - or at least it would be if ChildishGambino[[note]]"Donald Glover" transformed by a "Music/WuTangClan name generator" online[[/note]] didn't openly identify himself as Donald Glover and repeatedly reference his role as Troy in his songs. Dude can rhyme a ''lot'' harder than "donde-esta-la-biblioteca".
*** The rest of Derrickcomedy also cameo as a sketch group that feeds Pierce movie riff jokes in season 1.
** Danny Pudi (Abed) was in several commercials before doing this show, from [=McDonald's=] snack wraps to the Blackberry "butt dialing". He has even appeared as an annoyed customer in a Walgreens training video.
** Wait, how did [[MadMen Trudy Campbell]] get here? Why is she nineteen? Shouldn't she be, like, seventy? And why is she Jewish?
*** Oh my god, you can't just ask people why they're Jewish.
** Oh hey, it's Creator/JayJohnston as a police officer, ''[[TheSarahSilvermanProgram yet]] [[Series/ArrestedDevelopment again]]''.

** The pool coach is [[Series/BoyMeetsWorld Shawn Hunter]]'s dad! Also, Slinky The Dog in ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3''!
** Yes, Chevy Chase is now [[Series/SaturdayNightLive ready for primetime]].
** Star-Burns is the creator of ''WesternAnimation/MoralOrel'' and ''WesternAnimation/HighSchoolUSA''.
** [[Film/HarryPotter Lee Jordan]] is Magnitude. Who the hell saw that coming.
** The pregnant girl in Abed's [[MeaningfulBackgroundEvent child-delivery background story]] in The Psychology of Letting Go is [[TheHardTimesOfRJBerger Jenny Swanson]].
** Apparently [[GreysAnatomy Nurse Rose]] has a thing for guys with impossibly good hair, and a pattern of getting ditched for other women and disappearing forever. Sorry, Professor Slater.
** Two of the stoner set are [[{{Series/Chuck}} Morgan Grimes]] and [[Series/BreakingBad Badger]]. Well, at least they're in college...
** This film answers the question of what would have happened to [[Film/AnotherEarth Rhoda on Earth 2]] - she would have gone to community college instead of MIT, and not been a lesbian.
** "Custody Law and Eastern European Diplomacy" has Creator/EnverGjokaj as Lukka, again showing his affinity for accents.
** [[Film/GroundhogDay Stephen]] [[Series/{{Glee}} Tobolowsky]] as the ''WhosTheBoss?'' professor in "Competitive Wine Tasting".
** The Vice-Dean of Greendale's Air Conditioning Repair Annex is John Goodman.
** [[TheGuild Zabu]] goes to Greendale and plays Abed in Abed's short films.
** [[Series/TheWire Yo, Jeff. You come at the Biology Professor, you best not miss.]]
** [[Series/FreaksAndGeeks Bill Haverchuck]] grew up to be a Poli Sci teacher.
** Those who saw {{Series/Justified}} first might be alarmed to see psychotic stoner Travis Travers as Dr. Rich.
** Hey, it's Creator/PattonOswalt!
** The DragQueen who sang about having a "pocket full of Hawthornes" is none other than [[RupaulsDragRace Shangela.]]
** [[Series/{{Workaholics}} Blake]] doesn't think Pierce is on the list for the Bar Mitzvah.
*** And [[Series/{{Workaholics}} Adam]] is Jeff's estranged half-brother.
** Shut up, Leonard, everyone knows you can [[Series/TheTwilightZone control time]]!
** [[Series/TeenWolf Lydia Martin]] is in biology lab with Troy and Abed in [[Recap/CommunityS1E10EnvironmentalScience Environmental Science]].
** [[LizzieMcguire Lizzie McGuire]] of all people as the school AlphaBitch?
** [[Series/{{Scrubs}} Keith Dudemeister]] is the original [[AnthropomorphicPersonification Subway]].
** Jeff now shares an office with [[Series/BreakingBad Mike Ehrmantraut]], who is just as intimidating as he ever was working for Gus (just ask Leonard).
*** Speaking of Gus, he's Pierce's half-brother.
** Abed's Secret Service "girlfriend" was [[Series/HappyEndings Jane Kerkovich-Williams]]. And he's currently dating a bespectacled [[Film/ScottPilgrimVsTheWorld Envy Adams]].
* HeyItsThatVoice: Annie is [[WesternAnimation/TheLEGOMovie Princess Uni-Kitty]]!
* [[HeyItsThatVoice Hey Its That Tune!]]: The song Britta dances to in Season 4 episode 5 is the the theme to Series/BrooklynNineNine

** In part due to the focus on nerdom in general, and later being put up against each other in the same time slot, there is a certain rivalry with ''TheBigBangTheory''. It's probably more apparently between [[FandomRivalry the fandoms]] rather than anything else.

Added DiffLines:

* CreatorKiller: Season 6's underwhelming reception (coupled with the underwhelming reception of the rest of Yahoo Screen's premiere slate and a buggy proprietary media player) led to Yahoo Screen being shut down after a single season.
