* WriteWhoYouKnow: Mordecai is pretty heavily based on series creator J.G. Quintel, who even voices the character with his regular voice. Quintel even stated that Mordecai is himself as a bluejay (which is why Mordecai doesn't act like a bird).

** CJ was originally conceived as more of a "difficult woman" type, but writer Kat Morris felt it was [[UnfortunateImplications misogynistic]] and rewrote the character to still be prone to mood-swings but at least had a somewhat rational reason for them.

** When they were casting voices for the main characters, Mark Hamill originally auditioned for Pops but Sam Marin already got the role, so J.G. Quintel had him audition for Skips instead.

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Wanna see the uncut version of ''The Power'' (you know, the one where Rigby actually says, "Now, how in the H are we gonna fix this S")? Only place you'll get to is on the Slack Pack DVD, as for the uncut versions of ''Free Cake'' and ''Meat Your Maker'' unless you copied it the first time you're out of luck unless you find it through [[DigitalPiracyIsEvil illegal means]].

** As soon as the final episode of the series aired, the entire series was completely dropped from Cartoon Network's scheduling. While it makes sense that a series that finishes up would be put to rest, it makes just as much sense to at least show reruns for a little while. The series finale itself aired once and ONLY once. You'll have to find it online to see it.

* ScrewedByTheNetwork: In UGLY ways, and it's screwing gradually got worse AND WORSE as it went on. Similar to Adventure Time, this is most likely due to the saturation of the schedule with Teen Titans Go! reruns (either for financial reasons, or so the network can artificially lower the series' ratings to justify shitcanning it), its age (the series premiered in 2010, and is pretty old by industry standards), or MoralGuardians (the show is NOTORIOUS for it's mild profanity, heavy violent content, and mild sexual innuendo) are most likely to blame. Starting in February 2015, Regular Show was banished to a 7:30 to 8:00 PM timeslot, the only time it was shown.
** That was pretty bad, but in mid-2015, the show was ENTIRELY removed from the schedule unless there were new episodes (shown during a very irregular bomb week). All of it's previous slots were taken up by Teen Titans Go, to no one's surprise.
** It was confirmed the series would end in 2017 (unknown whether this was CN's doing or the creators choosing to end the series). n the meantime, though, it regained it's 7:30 timeslot in fall 2015, just in time to rejoice with Adventure Time reruns finally coming back in September, alongside Baby Looney Toons, Courage the Cowardly Dog, and new episodes of Ninjago, along with much less Teen Titans Go reruns, it seemed to have finally been averted.
** ....But, with the start of 2016, it proved it was too good to be true. New episodes, shorts and reruns were briefly aired from 6:00 to 8:00 PM in a block dubbed ''Regular Time Adventure Show''. Soon after, the block (as well as Adventure Time) vanished without a trace, and Regular Show only got to air a single 15-minute episode right before Adult Swim started on weekdays, and at this point, CN didn't even see it fit to ADVERTISE Regular Show.
** It got WORSE. In Mid-2016, after Season 7 concluded in June 2016, CN seemingly didn't see the point in treating it with dignity. For a very long while, Regular Show was only aired at 6:30 in the morning on weekdays, right after Uncle Grandpa (which, if you're wondering, also only aired at 6:00 AM), before reruns shored up entirely in mid-late 2016. The final Regular Show marathon ever was shown a few weeks before Regular Show: In Space (Season 8) premiered in September 2016. When Season 8 aired, reruns of the other 7 seasons all vanished ''for good''.
** But ultimately, the final season was treated worst of all. Regular Show's last 31 episodes were burned off weekly with minimal (though surprisingly, existent) advertising, typically right after a Teen Titans Go marathon meant to promote it (promote being very ill-defined in this case). But aside from that, everything was smooth sailing.... until the finale aired in January 2017 (which is a very, very rare feat for a long running series at the current time in the network), it received one final, massive insult to send it off. The final 4 episodes were aired on Martin Luther King Jr day (a Monday), rather than the usual Thursday-Friday premiere date at the time. To make matters worse, there wasn't even a marathon of the series or the 8th season as a tribute to one of CN's most beloved and longest running series (one of the shows that put it back on the map). Instead, they were aired right after a Teen Titans Go marathon, the movies ''Shrek'' and ''Rio'', and the TTG Island Adventure marathon. Right after the finale aired, reruns of the series, let alone any mention of the series at all, comepletey vanished without a trace.
