** The quote "You're just jealous cuz I sound like a rock star" is a nod to Creator/GregCipes' actual career as a reggae-ska rock singer. On top of that, Cipes has lived on a vegan diet since age 8, and actually is a professional surfer, so he fits with Beast Boy's [[TotallyRadical lingo.]]
** The hero of the ''Franchise/StarWars'' ShoutOut in "Episode 257-494" is voiced by Creator/JamesArnoldTaylor, a.k.a. [[WesternAnimation/StarWarsCloneWars Obi-Wan]] [[WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars Kenobi]].

** Before the show materialized as ''Teen Titans'', it was originally proposed as an adaptation of ''Comicbook/YoungJustice'', the successor to the Teen Titans in the comics (which was actually made because the then-recent ''Teen Titans'' comic, or "Titans", was met with terrible reception). Ultimately, it didn't pan out, one of the reasons being that much of the complete roster for Young Justice consists of {{Legacy Character}}s [[note]]the roster has included Robin III, Superboy II, Impulse (Bart Allen II), Wonder Girl II, Lil Lobo, and Batgirl IV[[/note]] and they feared this would likely be too confusing for non-comic readers, especially the kids the show was ostensibly meant for, and having to manage all these legacies would probably also be difficult for the writers. Hence, the ''Teen Titans'' we know today was born. While ''Young Justice'' would eventually get its own [[WesternAnimation/YoungJustice adaptation]] that was well-received, it takes some [[InNameOnly creative liberties]] with the source material. One can only wonder what ''Young Justice'' would've been if the original pitch made it through.



** There was a proposed live-action adaptation that was supposed to air on TNT, but it never made it past the pilot stage.

* MissingEpisode: "The Lost Episode". It featured a villain named Punk Rocket who used a [[InstrumentOfMurder weaponized guitar]]. Punk Rocket would later show up in a very minor role near the end of the 5th season as part of the Brotherhood of Evil. In a very odd example of this trope, the episode is neither technically missing or was ever lost. Rather, it was a normal (if half-length) episode that was withheld from broadcast in favor of being an incentive to ''buy cereal.'' You'd buy the cereal, and get a code to enter on that website, where'd you watch it in glorious 2004/5 tiny window with extremely poor quality. It's since been released on the DVD for "Trouble in Tokyo".

** Gnnark was never a Titan in Post-Crisis continuity, although some artists (such as Justiniano) would try to sneak him in as a cameo to later "Titans West" flashblacks. His only canonical appearance in Post-Crisis continuity was in a flashback issue as a frozen Neanderthal that had a psychic connection with Lilith, but eventually died.

Funnily, he was reintroduced to the team in ''ComicBook/TitansHunt2015'' as a character who was part of a group of Teen Titans that was forgotten by the world, ''along'' with Lilith.
