* BreakawayPopHit: Music/WillSmith's tie-in title song managed to relaunch his then-dormant rap career and, for better or worse, [[GenreRelaunch relaunch pop rap into the mainstream]] after GangstaRap went out of style following [[Music/TheNotoriousBIG Biggie]] and [[TupacShakur 2Pac's]] murders.

** Among the options for the role of Jay was David Schwimmer of ''Series/{{Friends}}'' fame. Imagine a Film/MenInBlack starring Creator/ClintEastwood and David Schwimmer.

* ActorAllusion: This is not the first time Ed O'Ross [[Film/TheHidden fought aliens on the city streets]].
* TheOtherDarrin:
** K's voice actor is replaced after the first season. L gets a new voice actress for the final season.
** Almost none of the actors from the movie reprised their roles for the show. Creator/TonyShalhoub did reprise Jeebs in a few early episodes, but Creator/BillyWest did the voice for the remainder of the series.
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: The first season was finally released on DVD in 2012 as a Target exclusive, but the rest of the series is still no where to be found.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: The theme for the cartoon series carries the first few beats of Will Smith's eponymous "Men In Black" as part of its main theme, but ditches the rest of the song in favor of a instrumental hip-hop composition.

** Meta - The fact that the top two billings are Will SMITH and Tommy Lee JONES resulted directly in a lot of promotional material billing them simply as Mr Smith and Mr Jones. And as you can see they weren't the director's first choices. Kudos to the advertising campaign, who took advantage of this to bill them simply as Mr Smith and Mr Jones in most promotional posters; a direct ShoutOut to the very idea of the Men In Black.

* The little alien in the mech body was originally written for earlier in the film. Originally, K originally introduced J to a bartender, who would lift his face up to reveal a body made of light. Then Phil Tippet had the idea to have his face open to reveal a pilot. Everyone liked the idea so much they moved the idea and made it plot-relevant.

* CastingGag: The posters play on the fact that the film's two main stars had the last names [[WillSmith "Smith"]] and [[Creator/TommyLeeJones "Jones"]]... you know, the kind of super-plain codenames you'd expect two anonymous, black-suited government agents to use.
* EnforcedMethodActing: Creator/TommyLeeJones was not amused by the script he was given, so he ad-libbed a good deal of his dialogue. Look closely enough and you can see WillSmith trying to keep up, as expected of the fresh recruit. The resulting synergy is well over half the movie's charm.
