* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Creator/JohnKricfalusi, Bob Camp and Jim Smith wrote a Halloween-themed episode of ''Tiny Toons'' titled "Hi, Spirits" while waiting for Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} to greenlight ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow''. It was never finished as a ''Tiny Toons'' episode, but [[http://www.thadkomorowski.com/2010/04/the-tiny-toon-that-got-rejected-and-became-a-ren-stimpy/ Spumco remade it as the ''Ren & Stimpy'' episode "Haunted House"]]. The idea would later be reworked on ''Tiny Toons'' as the short "Boo Ha Ha". [[note]]John K. reportedly had [[CreativeDifferences a very bad relationship with the show's staff]] and would famously blast the show once it became more popular, later doing the same to ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' [[ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontWatch without even seeing a single episode]].[[/note]]

* HeyItsThatGuy: Backstage Edition: BruceTimm was a character designer on this show before he did ''Batman: The Animated Series''. Elmyra and Montana Max in particular have a lot of Bruce Timm characteristics.
* HeyItsThatVoice: Besides the usual gang of 1990s voice actors (Creator/CharlieAdler, Creator/KathSoucie, Creator/TressMacNeille, Creator/MauriceLaMarche, etc), Shirley the Loon was voiced by Gail Matthius, a former cast member of ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'''s sixth season (1980-1981) headed by Jean Doumanian (considered the show's worst season[[note]]though there are many arguments from fans as to what season or seasons is/are bad.[[/note]] and one of many factors behind the [[SeasonalRot network rot]] of NBC in the early 1980s). In the 1990s, Matthius did voicework in kids' cartoons, often playing moms with that stereotypical Upper Midwestern accent that most people in the 21st century would now recognize as "the UsefulNotes/SarahPalin voice" or teenaged {{Valley Girl}}s (both of which she did on ''Saturday Night Live'', the British sketch show ''Assaulted Nuts'', and the syndicated in America sketch show ''Laugh Trax''). The Valley Girl voice Matthius uses for Shirley the Loon is a higher, more well-done version of the her Valley Girl Vicki character on ''SNL''.
** Danny Cooksey, the voice of Montana Max, was Sam [=McKinney=] in the last two seasons of ''Series/DiffrentStrokes''. He was also the teenaged John Connor's hoodlum friend in ''Film/{{Terminator 2}}'' and Bobby Budnick on Nickelodeon's live-action summer camp kidcom ''Series/SaluteYourShorts''. Also RetroactiveRecognition and PlayingAgainstType, as Cooksey would later voice Milo Kahmahlani (the AmbiguouslyBrown Hawaiian boy who's into art) on ''WesternAnimation/PepperAnn'', who is nothing like Bobby Budnick or Montana Max (he does yell sometimes, but he's not a {{Jerkass}}). Later still, he would play other [[WesternAnimation/StaticShock shouty, boisterous]] ([[WesternAnimation/XiaolinShowdown but occasionally ineffectual]]) bad guys as well.
** Plucky is unique in that he is the only main character voiced by an actor who also played their ''Looney Tunes'' counterpart at times, Joe Alaskey having been the voice for WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck both in the nineties and currently. As a result, though Alaskey does attempt to make their voices somewhat different, Plucky sounds ''exactly'' like Daffy Duck (which you would expect from a character who is supposed to be the next generation version of Daffy).
** Elmyra was Creator/CreeSummer's then most notable role and only lead role after voicing Penny in ''WesternAnimation/InspectorGadget'' years prior. She didn't think she would get the part when auditioning, so she just went with what she thought was a hastily conceived exaggerated clowny voice...that she would have to do again and again once she ''was'' cast (both on this show and the fan-hated series ''Pinky, Elmyra, and the Brain'').
** Creator/FrankWelker, who has a [[ManOfAThousandVoices very extensive voice list]], many of which are vocal effects for animals and monsters, did vocal effects for Furball and sometimes had speaking roles on this show [[note]]Including that of Gogo Dodo, his most recurring role along with the aforementioned Furrball.[[/note]].
** The Japanese dub has serious [[CastingGag Casting Gags]], most were top-notch cast as for almost all the characters:
*** Buster [[Creator/RyuseiNakao is]] [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Mayuri Kurotsuchi]] and [[Anime/DragonBallZ Frieza]]
*** Babs [[Creator/MinaTominaga is]] [[Anime/{{Patlabor}} Noa Izumi]], [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters Angel in KOF 2001]] and [[Manga/RurouniKenshin Myojin Yahiko]]. She then later became [[Anime/SmilePrettyCure Majorina]].
*** Plucky [[Creator/KoichiYamadera is]] [[Anime/CowboyBebop Spike Spiegel]] and [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Ryoji Kaji]]
*** Fifi [[JunkoAsami is]] [[VisualNovel/{{Demonbane}} Ruri Hadou]] and [[Manga/AhMyGoddess Sayoko Mishima in the OVAs]]
*** Montana Max [[Creator/UraraTakano is]] [[VideoGame/SakuraWars Maria Tachibana]]
*** Furrball [[Creator/RyuzouIshino is]] [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Chang Wufei]] and [[VideoGame/SengokuBasara Chosokabe Motochika]]
*** Sweetie Bird [[Creator/YukoMizutani is]] [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Excellen Browning]] and [[Anime/TenchiMuyo Mihoshi]]
*** Little Sneezer [[Music/MegumiHayashibara is]] [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Rei Ayanami]] and [[LightNovel/{{Slayers}} Lina Inverse]] and later [[TheOtherDarrin replaced]] [[Creator/IkueOtani by]] [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Pikachu]] and [[Manga/OnePiece Tony Tony Chopper]]
*** Shirley The Loon [[Creator/MikaKanai is]] [[Anime/CodeGeass Kaguya Sumeragi]] and [[Anime/AfterWarGundamX Tifa Adill]] (And also counts as a creepy case of HarsherInHindsight and HilariousInHindsight at the same time since her Japanese VA was [[Creator/KoichiYamadera Plucky's VA]] ''wife'')
*** Arnold the Pitbull [[TomomichiNishimura is]] [[VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha Akuma and M.Bison]]
*** Concord Condor [[NaokiTatsuta is]] [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3 Nikolai Sokolov]]
** And the animator in "The Looney Beginning" whose voice actor isn't credited is none other than Creator/StevenSpielberg himself.
** Hamton was voiced by Creator/DonMessick, who was probably the oldest of the cast[[note]]He was born in 1926.[[/note]], and is probably best known and remembered for his work with Creator/HannaBarbera.

* WriterRevolt: Infamously with the short "One Beer." What was supposed to be a VerySpecialEpisode about the dangers of under-aged drinking ended up as a StealthParody, with Buster outright breaking the 4th wall and mentioning for the sake of the story, they would be acting out character.

* WordOfDante: It's wildly believed that Furball / [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Furrball]] is part {{Expy}} of Penelope Pussycat alongside being an {{Expy}} of Sylvester, the former being the cat Pepe chased in his shorts of old. Not only is this not the case, the canon proof people use of Fifi chasing after him after getting a white stripe on his back only happened in ''one'' short throughout the entire series.

* ScrewedByTheNetwork: The show sadly only lasted 3 seasons, being cancelled to make way for ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}''. Despite its massive popularity and the fans requests, the show is never going to be revived, so fans will have to settle for reruns (which are on TheHub network, which may not exist on most cable company packages) and the [=DVD=]s (which took a while to be released and have parts cut that only purists may notice).

* ScrewedByTheLawyers: The comics from Marvel UK are unlikely to be reprinted any time soon, as not only has Creator/WarnerBrothers licensed all WB-based properties to their own Creator/DCComics in all territories, but Marvel is now owned by Creator/{{Disney}}, Warner's competitor.
