* CowboyBebopAtHisComputer: Among people unfamiliar with which show was made by which channel, there seems to be a recurring belief that Cartoon Network created "My Life As A Teenage Robot" rather than Creator/{{Nickelodeon}}. This may be derived from confusion with CN's ''WesternAnimation/{{Robotboy}}'', because Rob Renzetti was involved in many CN shows, or the artstyle being reminiscent of ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'' and ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls''.

* RuleThirtyFourCreatorReactions: When there was a debate on Facebook over [[http://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-prn1/556776_470834669621597_2140134883_n.jpg this]] fan-art of Jenny (SFW), Rob stepped in and offered his views[[note]]"Let me say that this particular piece of art is okay with me. It is 'sexy', which is okay with me. What I object to is 'Sex' images where things range from very suggestive to completely explicit. I hope that is clear enough for everyone but, if you aren't sure whether an image might be appropriate or not, then don't post it."[[/note]], saying that while outright porn of his characters wasn't tolerable, simple "sexy" pinups were A-OK.

** The show came about simply as a result of Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} deciding they didn't want a sixth ''WesternAnimation/MinaAndTheCount'' short. The original concept was a teenage girl whose boyfriend was a robot, but Renzetti merged the two characters into a teenage robot girl, and the rest is history.
** Supposedly, Creator/StudioGainax (of ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' and ''Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt'' fame) wanted to create an anime reboot of the series due to [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff how popular the series is in Japan]]. Not unlike what happened to ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'', except [[Anime/DemashitaPowerpuffGirlsZ the latter became a reality]].

** There was supposed to be a third "Raggedy Android" episode with the human exoskin kidnapping Brad and threatening to kill him unless Jenny merged with her. It was scrapped because Nickelodeon felt it was too disturbing. Another scrapped episode would have seen Jenny time travelling team up with a young Dr. Wakeman in Skyway Patrol.
