* StockFootage:
** The high-quality animation came at a cost. To keep down costs, some episodes are comprised entirely of old footage of Mighty Mouse cartoons (along with other misc. Terrytoons shorts) with a new soundtrack. You can pretty much skip these on the DVD, unless you're a big fan of the poor covers of 1960s songs they play in the background.

* ClipShow: Despite lasting 19 episodes, there are several shorts comprised of nothing but clips from old Terrytoons (i.e. "Scrappys Playhouse") and earlier episodes of the show. This was due to budget reasons (the key animation was done in-house, which is very expensive for a low-budget series such as this)

** "The Ice Goose Cometh" uses this when Gandy Goose is undergoing separation anxiety, flashing back to footage of the old Terrytoons cartoons starring him and Sourpuss.
