* TheOtherDarrin: Arye Gross narrated the pilot; Daniel Stern narrated the series. The pilot with Gross' narration aired only ''once'' (following ''Super Bowl XXII''); all airings after the original broadcast replaced Gross' voice with Stern's.
* UrbanLegend: For a long time, it was believed that the original broadcast of the pilot ended with Arye Gross (see above) narrating "It was the only time Winnie and I ever kissed.", and that the Daniel Stern redub retconned it to "It was the first kiss for both of us." This was proven false, when [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lyVCnp5vbk8 the last scene from the original broadcast was uploaded to YouTube by thepasswordisfail on May 5, 2012.]]
