** Kathy Griffin has said that Seinfeld's annoyance towards her character Sally Weaver was genuine, as Jerry Seinfeld really did find her an irritating person. So much so, that Seinfeld actually snapped at her during production of one of her episodes.

* StarMakingRole: While Creator/JasonAlexander was more than a respectable actor beforehand, ''Seinfeld'' offered him his greatest exposure. He's grateful for it too, because he's remarked that, otherwise, "he'd be remembered as that guy [[Film/PrettyWoman who tried to rape Julia Roberts]]".

** Newman first appears in a voice-only cameo in "The Revenge", in which he was voiced by Larry David. In syndication, the voice was redubbed by Wayne Newman, who by that point had been cast as the character and appeared on the show.



** Jerry and George's fear and discomfort of Elaine's father wasn't entirely acting; the actor who played him, Lawrence Tierney, a film noir star from the 1940s and 1950s (whom you may also recognise as crime boss [[Film/ReservoirDogs Joe Cabot]]), was an ''incredibly'' intimidating presence on set, and his erratic and discomforting behaviour (including stealing a kitchen knife at one point) unsettled practically everyone.

** The pilot episode had an entirely different theme song, the on-screen title was ''The Seinfeld Chronicles'', the credit titles were in a different font, and the end titles played over a plain black screen. In syndication, however, the original theme is replaced with Jonathan Wolff's theme, ''The Seinfeld Chronicles'' title is replaced with ''Seinfeld'', the titles are in the tradition Movie Poster font like the rest of the series, and the end titles are plastered over still shots of Jerry's standup riffs.

* ActorAllusion: In the ''JFK'' parody in "The Boyfriend," Newman replicates his position standing in front of Kramer, just as Wayne Knight did in the movie standing in for John Connally in the courtroom demonstration of the "magic bullet" theory.

* UnfinishedEpisode: "The Gun," was written as [[AndNowForSomethingCompletelyDifferent something completely different]], in that it was more of a seriocomic episode that dealt with Elaine buying a handgun for self-protection and Jerry betting her that she'll never even use it; meanwhile, Kramer returns from a trip and claims to have had sex with the flight attendant in mid-flight and Jerry and George try to track her down betting that Kramer's story is bogus. The script made it to table reading, but the cast felt it was too dark and not very funny, so it was shelved and ultimately never made.

** An episode called "The Bet" was scripted but never produced. When the script, whose plot revolved around Elaine buying a gun, reached the table read stage, it came off as unfunny and unnecessarily dark. Pretty much everyone present realized on the spot that the concept wouldn't work, so the entire script was shelved.
*** "The Bet" lives on as an Internet urban legend in the form of a "creepypasta" story alleging the episode was filmed and all but one copy destroyed. Naturally, the episode supposedly contains disturbing and supernatural phenomena happening to the actors and crew.

** The episode which suffers the worst in this regard is "The Yada Yada", as it originally ran ''26 minutes'' in its NBC premiere. [[note]]Before commercialism increased to epic proportions with TheNineties, most half-hour shows ''were'' 26 minutes.[[/note]]

** For the most part unnoticable [[note]]For example, there are people who still think the second season premiere was filmed in New York, and not NBC's LA studio[[/note]], but in [[http://www.imcdb.org/vehicle_310663-Chevrolet-Caprice-1993.html some parts]] it's apperent. [[note]]If you can't tell, that's a California license plate on a New York taxi.[[/note]]
