** Played with in Season 5's YetAnotherChristmasCarol episode, "Halloween IV." Teenage Dan (played by Abraham Benrubi) wears a caveman costume. The next year, Creator/JohnGoodman played Fred Flintstone in ''Film/TheFlintstones'', and Benrubi himself would appear in ''Film/GeorgeOfTheJungle''.
* AdoredByTheNetwork: There have been times you would think this was the only show Nick At Night owned the rights to. ABC wasn't exactly neglectful of the show, either. WE, [=TVLand=], and Logo like to show marathons of it as well.

* ActorAllusion: When Michael O'Keefe (Fred) left the show, he went to another show on ABC called ''Life's Work'', where he was the husband of an assistant district attorney with two children. In one episode of ''Roseanne'', while complaining about Fred's Christmas present to Jackie, Roseanne says that they never see him "since he moved in with that D.A. chick with them two kids."

* TheCastShowoff: Creator/JohnGoodman is an adept impressionist, as seen on his countless ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' appearances. This was worked into the show fairly often, with Dan launching into impressions of anybody from Creator/RobertDeNiro and Vreator/MarlonBrando to Film/TheThreeStooges to JuliaChild. He also showed off his singing talents in a handful of episodes - notably season one's "Radio Days" and season two's "Sweet Dreams."

* RomanceOnTheSet: Sara Gilbert and Johnny Galecki dated briefly while on the show. They admitted it was a light teen crush and nothing too serious, as they were 16-17 at the time. [[LastHetRomance Gilbert also figured out she preferred women while dating him.]]

* StarMakingRole: Undoubtedly put Creator/JohnGoodman on the map. Debatably did the same for Johnny Galecki (if not this one, then definitely ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'').

to:

* StarMakingRole: SeparatedAtBirthCasting: Michael Fishman so uncannily resembles Roseanne Barr that they even remark on the resemblance InUniverse (even though a child looking like one of his parents is hardly remarkable in RealLife). That said, Roseanne Barr has remarked that Fishman looks more like her than her actual children do.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: While talks about a revival were in the works, Roseanne was very tight-lipped about what the Connor family was up to, saying it was intellectual property which might be developed later. However, apparently the talks fell through, because at the end of 2009 she posted a [[http://www.roseanneworld.com/blog/2009/12/reunion-show.php blog]] that gave a few details as to what the family was up to:

** Writer and story editor Amy Sherman dated and later married fellow writer Daniel Palladino. Palladino would later work with Sherman on ''Gilmore Girls'' as executive producer until 2006, when they both left the show after it moved to Creator/TheCW, due to creative differences with then CW president of entertainment Dawn Ostroff, and were replaced by former ''Series/{{Ellen}}'' co-creator David S. Rosenthal.

** In the episode in which David Crosby and his band appear, Roseanne's fellow waitress at Rodbells, Bonnie, turns out to be quite the singer. Bonnie was played by Bonnie Bramlett, a successful recording artist in real life.

* HideYourPregnancy: They tried to do this with Laurie Metcalf's pregnancy. They started with loose clothing that got larger and larger and then resorted to putting things in front of her (the most memorable moment being when Jackie sits in the bathtub with a heavy quilt over her when she, Dan and Roseanne get high on twenty year old pot). However, Metcalf ended up with one of the biggest baby bumps ever, forcing them to write in a one night stand conception so they didn't have to remove her from the rest of the season.
