* AwesomeDearBoy: TimDaly said the reason he signed on to do Superman's voice in this series was because he thought it would be fun to play a superhero in a superhero cartoon. He later said he underestimated just how difficult voice acting for a superhero, especially one of Superman's stature, would be.

** There were some thoughts of having Captain Marvel/Shazam appear in the series, possibly in a episode that would also introduce the Justice League, but a combination of rights issues and not wanting to introduce the Justice League out of nowhere put an end to it.

** Paul Dini and Bruce Timm originally wanted to use Kara Zor-El as Supergirl, but they were denied by DC Comics due to the then-current "Superman is the ''only'' survivor of Krypton" edict.

** Paul Dini and Bruce Timm originally wanted to use Kara Zor-El as Supergirl, but they were denied by DC Comics due to the then-current "Superman is the ''only'' survivor of Krypton" edict. Although they went as close as they could get, with Kara being Clark's ''adopted'' cousin and from Krypton's "sister planet", Argo (a MythologyGag to that side of the House of El living in ''Argo'' City in the comics), essentially making her as close to Kryptonian as possible. An additional MythologyGag is her family name - Kara Zor-El's mother was named Allura ''In-Ze'', with said surname given to the show's interpretation of Kara.
