* CompletelyDifferentTitle: ''Anime/OjamajoDoremi'' is known as ''Magical [=DoReMi=]'' in numerous other dubs as the word ''"ojamajo"'' is an untranslatable pun on the words ''"Ojama"'' (something/someone who gets in the way and is useless) and ''"Majo"'' (a witch). However, 4Kids [[DubNameChange changed Doremi's name to Dorie]], thus changing the meaning of the title from a description of the main character into a combined pun of the first two letters of the new names the gave the main characters: '''Do'''rie, '''Re'''anne and '''Mi'''rabelle.

** Remember Nozomi, the LittlestCancerPatient from ''Na-i-sho''? Well, later on, [[Franchise/PrettyCure a certain other]] MagicalGirl CashCowFranchise by Toei eventually named [[Anime/YesPrettyCure5 one of its leads]] Nozomi. Said lead, to boot, also shares a lot of traits with Doremi (most notably the pink-colored outfits and the [[{{Dojikko}} clumsiness]]).

** There was once a Portuguese dub in Canal Panda. If you didn't see it while it was being shown on TV, you have [[LostForever lost it forever]]. Even finding the show from people who did record it is nigh-impossible on the internet. Only some random episodes can be found from this dub.

* HeyItsThatVoice:
** Creator/ChiemiChiba is Doremi and Creator/NamiMiyahara voices Momoko and Masaru... not to mention the hundreds of other guest characters have distinctive voice actors including (but not limited to) Creator/AkiraIshida, Creator/TakahiroSakurai, Creator/KumikoWatanabe, etc. Consider their 15-second appearances as a crowning moment of OvershadowedByAwesome.
** Also expands to the 4Kids dub ([[JustifiedTrope though with the number of actors they have, it's to be expected]]).
** Creator/RumiShishido, who voices Onpu, also voices Princess Pearl from ''Anime/FushigiboshiNoFutagohime''.
** The Italian dub has a lot of voice actors who later voiced characters in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': Doremi is Sunset Shimmer, Onpu is Twilight Sparkle, Aiko is Twist, Pop is Sweetie Belle, the teachers are Zecora and Apple Bloom, Momoko is Rainbow Dash...

* CelebrityVoiceActor: In the Mexican Spanish dub, Doremi is voiced by the Mexican soap opera actress Vanessa Acosta. This was a pretty unusual casting move for a Mexican actor, since Mexican Spanish dubs for anime series never use famous actors compared with other dubs from other kinds of stuff (like WesternAnimation, Disney movies, etc.)

* FanNickname: Season one is sometimes called ''Ojamajo Doremi Carnival'' to distinguish it from the rest of the series. This nickname may have been born out of confusion, since the name of the season's opening theme is "Ojamajo Carnival."

* HeAlsoDid: Yoshihiko Umakoshi, the series character designer, also did the character designs for ''Anime/CasshernSins'', a show that is largely different in terms of storytelling and genre with ''Ojamajo Doremi''. He would later go on to work on two more Toei Animation shows, ''Anime/HeartcatchPrettyCure'' (which seems to take several cues from ''Doremi'', especially when it comes to stylistic choices and inspirations for certain characters) and ''Anime/SaintSeiyaOmega''.

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: 4Kids has not released anything past the first series. In addition, the majority of the original Japanese DVD sets are out of print, making it hard to access the show.

* RecycledScript: The [[PostScriptSeason Post Script Seasons]]. ''Sharp'' especially, but ''Motto'' and ''Dokkan'' have this to a degree.
** To elaborate: In the first episode, Doremi envisioned herself as a Witch Frog; during an early episode of ''Dokkan'', Hana-chan did the same thing. Doremi's actions caused Dodo to fly away in tears during ''S1''; in ''Sharp'', Doremi's actions caused her to leave again, albeit this time in a huff.
* TalkingToHimself: Nami Miyahara voices both Momoko'' and'' Masaru, and there is an episode where they interact.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Doremi was originally designed with double ponytails before ending up with her double chignon hairstyle. Hana went through several revisions, including outfits that sported a dress instead of shorts, and different hairstyles.

* ScrewedByTheNetwork: In the United States, ''Ojamajo Doremi'' aired at 7:30 AM every Saturday -- a time where ''no one'' would actually want to get up to watch the show. Because it got low ratings, the remainder of the series was put on 4Kids' website via streaming. There was also a planned second wave of toy sets for the second half of the show, some of which leaked Oyajide and Onpu's names, but never came to fruition because of the flop.
