** If Disney had the rights to make a new ''Rocky and Bullwinkle'' series in 1989, we would've had [[http://michaelperaza.blogspot.com/2010/08/bullwinkled.html this]]. It would've had new ''Rocky and Bullwinkle'' stories, new ''Peabody's Improbable History'' stories, new ''WesternAnimation/DudleyDoRight'' stories, new ''Mr. Know-It-All'' segments and a whole new segment called ''Fractured Scary Tales'', which would've been spoofs of famous horror films. Of course, if Disney did have the rights, then we wouldn't have gotten what was the end result of the replacement pitch, ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck''. This is why Disney held the home video rights to Jay Ward's cartoons in the early 1990's, which were released around the time the series was in development.

This is why because Disney held the home video rights to Jay Ward's cartoons in at the early 1990's, which were released around time- the time TV animation dept. misconstrued that to mean they had all the series was in development.rights (Creator/{{Universal}} had the rights at the time- see for evidence the theme park rides with Ward-created characters, the 1999/00 addaptation films, and even the 1995 Energizer commercials with Boris and Natasha (which bore an MCA/Universal copyright).

* HeyItsThatVoice: Rocky and Natasha were voiced by June Foray, who voiced many female ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' characters, as well as other cartoon characters both past and present. Boris Badenov was voiced by Creator/PaulFrees, who was prominent in cartoons produced by Creator/{{Rankin Bass|Productions}} and other studios. Australian viewers may recognize Keith Scott as Bullwinkle, as he has been in most of Yoram Gross' animated films.

* {{Defictionalization}}: The producers of the show rented out a small island in Minnesota, called it Moosylvania, and began a tongue-in-cheek statehood campaign. The "Moosylvania for Statehood" campaign was cut short when the petition reached the White House just as the Cuban Missile Crisis was unfolding.

** International airings as well as the DVD releases title the show "The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle and Friends", not only replacing the original "Rocky and His Friends" title ("The Bullwinkle Show" opening does not appear on any of the {{DVD}}s)but also "The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle" title card for those segments.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: In 1981, there was going to be a revival involving a Super Bowl parody. It was ultimately scrapped because the NFL didn't like the idea of parodying team owners and it involved Boris fixing the game.
