** The [[OddballDoppelganger doppelganger family]] from "The Copycats" were originally lifted wholesale from the ''Miracle Star'' commercials that inspired the episode, even sharing the same names and identical designs. Sometime between storyboarding and the finished episode, the names and designs were changed to be different, though still obviously similar (and even more like the Wattersons).

** In [[http://issuu.com/worldscreen/docs/tv_kids_mipcom_2013 an interview (page 127)]], Ben Bocquelet revealed the show was originally envisioned as being about rejected cartoon characters being sent to a remedial school so they can become normal enough to star in an animated series. Daniel Lennard, the Vice President of Cartoon Network's European division, [[https://vimeo.com/68915551#t=3m06s found the idea to be too depressing]] and was looking for family/kids' animated sitcoms, so Bocquelet turned the remedial school into an American junior high school and also added a focus on the main character's family. He also mentioned at one point hoping Creator/AdultSwim would be interested in some of his work, although, contrary to some claims, [[https://twitter.com/benbocquelet/status/557632076636499969 he never pitched Gumball itself to Adult Swim]] (and the claim that AdultSwim rejected the show for being "too cute" was actually attributed to the short-lived series ''The Problem Solverz'').

** Cartoon Network also put a lot of faith into the show by renewing a second season a week before the premier, though this could have been done as the show spends a long time in production. Cartoon Network later renewed the show for a fourth and fifth season before the third season had even started airing and just renewed it for a sixth.

Cartoon Network later renewed the show for a fourth and fifth season before the third season had even started airing and just renewed it for a sixth. Overall, next to ''Teen Titans Go'', it's probably the network's most-aired series.
