* AdoredByTheNetwork: Mythbusters is Discovery Communications' CashCowFranchise, and the execs know that. When someone at The Science Channel put forth an idea to revive the series just days after the show ended production, the higher ups at Discovery approved of the plan almost immediately.

* [[HeyItsThatSound Hey It's That Music]]: Sharp-eared gamers may recognize one of the musical snips they sometimes use between shots as coming from the soundtrack of ''VideoGame/MechWarrior 2''. (If you want to know the specific moment, it's after the second test in the Hypermiling myth, you very briefly hear the same beat used in "Ambushed", the song for the missions Wolf Trial 4 and Iron Piston)

Added DiffLines:

* WhyFandomCantHaveNiceThings: In the early days, Adam, Grant and Kari posted occasionally on the Discovery forum. Adam was driven off by a death threat over the results of their first ScopeSnipe test, Grant left after being harassed by Monday morning quarterbacks and Kari left after receiving lewd comments by fanboys. Also, when Discovery Communications started leaking out the details for the reboot, fans were quick to jump the gun and criticize the changes made to the series on the official Facebook page, even if some of them were only temporary or inevitable.

* EditedForSyndication: The "rough cut" of each episode is about 52 minutes long, but in the US, those episodes get edited down to 42-45 minutes. Most of the cut material winds up on the website. In one first-season episode, most of the "Octopus Pregnancy" segment (including ''all'' the testing) was chopped out of the US release. Adam has said that the US versions of the episodes tend to cut out the punchlines of his jokes.

Additionally, episodes from earlier seasons are often re-edited to be aired as part of the kid-friendly ''Head Rush''.

* NoExportForYou: Unsrprisingly, ''Laws Of Attraction'' did not air in several conservative markets overseas due to it's content being deemed too risque by the local censors.

* ShortRunInPeru: Though the show is made in America, the episode "Plane Boarding"/"Bite the Bullet" aired overseas two full years before it finally aired in the United States. A few other episodes were similarly delayed (including Traffic Tricks), though no others were delayed for that long.

** One instance that [[GoneHorriblyWrong went horribly wrong]]] involved a prank in which Adam was shocked with an electric fence battery left over from a previous myth. A producer forced the build team to do it, and Adam was most definitely not amused. Neither, really, was anyone else. That particular producer "left the show" not long afterwards.
