* The music in the swamp levels in [=DKC2=] has the exact same drumbeat as "In the Air Tonight" by Creator/PhilCollins, which inevitably led to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YEjoz9egJDs&feature=more_related this.]]
** The Bramble level BGM [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J67nkzoJ_2M "Stickerbrush Symphony"]] takes chord progressions, beats, and a short excerpt from [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W2wrtoloJ6k "I Will Remember You" by Amy Grant.]]

* FanNickname: Website/DKVine members like to call the show Lord Harry.Harry, initially to distance it from the games, though some have began to call it such in a more affectionate manner.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: According to writer Erika Strobel, the reason for {{Creator/Nelvana}}'s collaboration with [=MediaLab=] was because the latter fired the original writers for coming up with scripts that were racist, sexist, and inappropriate for a children's show. Since they already storyboarded 10 of those episodes, Nelvana had to write around them.

* FollowTheLeader: It was obviously based on ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld'', but it does have its own original elements, like a frontal rolling attack, minecart rides, and secrets hidden in the walls. Though some still slam it for being a ''Mario'' clone.
