** A few of the characters were based on people the staff worked with at MTV. Mostly backgrounders, but Brittany was based on then-VJ Jenny [=McCarthy=] and Jake was inspired by the legions of clueless business consultants that were attached to the MTV offices like barnacles on a humpback whale.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Glenn Eichler was offered, after season five, either a TV movie to wrap up the series or a half-season extension to keep Daria going. He chose the former (MTV at the time had started producing TV movies and Daria's first tv movie was a huge hit for the network), which is a good thing as shortly after Daria ended, MTV killed it's animation division and the remaining animation shows on the network all got royally screwed over with them airing at random times and having episodes never air at all, which is why ''WesternAnimation/CloneHigh'', ''3 South'', and the later episodes of ''Celebrity Deathmatch'' (not the revival that was on MTV2, the episodes after Stacy Cornbread died) all ended suddenly or were phased out in favor of other shows.

*** Speaking of which, plans to have Daria cameo on the revived Beavis and Butthead were conceived but shelved due to MTV declaring her off-limits to Mike Judge (who gave up all claim to her when the character got her own show). MTV wanted to keep the option open to one day reviving Daria and Judge wanted to ignore the series. MTV won and Daria and her series were left untouched. (They ''did'' reference it in-show at one point; in one music video segment, Beavis thought Daria had killed herself, until Butt-Head tells him she just moved away.)

** "The Daria Hunter", "Just Add Water", and "Fair Enough" had Daria and Jane trying to get out of whatever social function they were in (Daria and Jane skipped the paintballing trip to go to the Great White Shark museum in "The Daria Hunter", Daria and Jane were trying to get some sleep after staying up all night watching a marathon of ''"Sick Sad World"'' on "Just Add Water"; and Daria and Jane tried to run from Upchuck by getting on a Ferris wheel, only to end up sharing the ride with a sobbing Stacy in "Fair Enough").
** "The Daria Hunter" and "Anti-Social Climbers" ended with someone getting left behind (Sandi after she finally found a hidden bathroom and Jake and Helen after Ms. Li took their distributor cap in "The Daria Hunter", and Kevin got lost before finding Mr. O'Neill in "Anti-Social Climbers").

* RecycledScript: "Fair Enough", "Just Add Water", and -- to a lesser extent, "Anti-Social Climbers" are just "The Daria Hunter" at a school-run Renaissance fair, a dingy casino cruise, and in the woods. There are some changes, but the following gags/scenes are the same for most or all the episodes:

* WriteWhoYouKnow: Daria's assignment in "Write Where It Hurts", where she must write a story using people in her life. She struggles pretty hard to think of anything besides Macbeth rip-offs and card games.

** Several rumors exist for expanded stories with Mack, including him being the third corner of the Daria-Jane-Tom love triangle following a breakup with Jodie, but none of these came to fruition in part due to the VA issues.

* In 2012, there was talk of a possible revival of the show, including rumors of a sequel series that would focus on Daria's college years. However, this seems to have died down completely.
