* HeyItsThatVoice:
** Who better to voice a bungling, inept police agent than the man who played [[Series/GetSmart Maxwell Smart]]?
** The Great Wambini, one of the recurring M.A.D. Agents in the second season, was played by the late Louis Nye.
** Penny was also one of the first roles for [[Creator/CreeSummer "Cree Summer Francks"]] (as she was known at the time). She would later voice Penny in a ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' parody of the show. (Although here, she sounds a lot more like her more recent roles.)
** Creator/FrankWelker as Brain, the commercial bumper announcer, Dr. Claw, and MAD Cat. The voice he uses here for Dr. Claw is actually a little electronic modulation away from the voice of [[WesternAnimation/TheTransformers Soundwave]]. He uses the exact same voice for Soundwave in ''[[{{Film/Transformers}} Revenge of the Fallen]]''.
** In the Japanese dub, Creator/TesshoGenda is Gadget and Creator/YumiTakada is Penny, being in both cases they are PlayingAgainstType.
** Corporal Capeman would later be known as [[TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987 Michaelangelo and Shredder]].
** Chief Quimby was [[WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones Mr. Slate in the original pilot]], [[Franchise/CareBears Braveheart Lion in the first season]] and [[MauriceLamarche Maurice Lamarche]] in the second season.
