* TheCameo / InkSuitActor: In a sense. The intro to TheMovie shows the everyday activities of the people living in a city on Mars. Among the people depicted are animated representations of Creator/WendeeLee (Faye), Creator/BeauBillingslea (Jet), and Creator/SteveBlum (Spike).[[note]]Lee appears as a bikini-clad woman drinking from a bottle, Billingslea is the DJ singing "What's up?" and Blum is the guy in sunglasses who does some cheesy kung-fu moves.[[/note]] Why the English voice actors and not the Japanese voice actors? Simply put, the show did so well in the West - helped in part by the notably superb dubbing job - that it's the reason the movie got made at all!

* CowboyBeBopAtHisComputer: In a rather incorrect newspaper picture caption (see the page pic), every single word except "at" and the photo credit "[[Creator/BandaiEntertainment Bandai]]" is specifically, individually wrong:
** The character pictured goes by Ed.
** [[TomboyishName Ed is a girl]].
** "Cowboy," the slang term for "bounty hunter" used in the world of the series, refers to the main characters' profession rather than naming anybody. Ed is also not one, being the crew's TagalongKid and a hacker, not a bounty hunter.
** It's Bebop, not "[=BeBop=]".
** Bebop is the name of the main characters' ship, not (again) any person.[[note]]It also references the music style featured in the soundtrack.[[/note]]
** The only part of the ship's computer actually shown in the picture is the [[ComputerEqualsMonitor monitor]].
** Ed doesn't own the computer.[[note]]Or the monitor.[[/note]]

* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** Edward was originally going to be a boy, but they decided that the character's mannerisms were more suited to a girl.
** It's also said that Edward might be based on Music/YokoKanno herself. Edward's [[PropRecycling original character design appears in the series]], as one of the boys that Annie catches shoplifting a nudie mag.
** ''Knockin' on Heaven's Door'' was originally conceived as elaborating on Spike's backstory as part of the Red Dragon Syndicate. But they determined that one of the defining characteristics of the show was the ''lack'' of exposition on backstory, in addition to all of the fan theories surrounding it, and thus they decided on an interquel.
** Creator/CrispinFreeman was originally cast as Vincent Volaju in TheMovie, but was replaced after the director realized he didn't sound low enough compared to Creator/SteveBlum.

* GossipEvolution: Some fans claim that ShinichiroWatanabe enjoys the English dub of the series more than the original. This stems from a Q&A where he said of the dubbed movie, "My English isn't that good, but I thought it sounded very good."
