Added DiffLines:

* [[WhereTheHellIsSpringfield Where The Hell is Cosmopolis?]]: We never get an exact location for Cosmopolis, the city which contains Mission Hill; the official website stated that Mission Hill itself was a mix of several different locations, including Mission Hill in Boston ([[WriteWhatYouKnow only miles away from where creator Bill Oakley went to college]]), Mission District in San Francisco, Silver Lake in Los Angeles, Wicker Park in Chicago, and Williamsburg in Brooklyn. We never actually see much outside of Mission Hill, either; the closest we get is the skyscrapers of Cosmopolis as a constant background fixture (much like the skyscrapers in ''WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce'', which [[StockFootage were recycled from]] ''SwatKats'').

* It featured an on-screen homosexual kiss (between Gus and Wally in the pilot episode) from a couple established to be male homosexuals, making it one of the first TV shows ''of any kind'' to do so. (Only a 1990 episode of ''[[TheSimpsonsDidIt The Simpsons]]'' ("Simpson and Delilah") and the first season of ''Picket Fences'' in 1992 (which featured a male-on-male kiss in one episode and a female-on-female kiss in another) predate the episode in this regard) and in one of the greatest [[AvertedTrope trope aversions]] of all time, [[NobodyOverFiftyIsGay elderly gay couple]] Gus and Wally had such rich personalities and unique storylines that the list of tropes below contains no StereotypeGay entries. (We find it unlikely that "Gay men fall in love while making a [[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 MST3K-worthy]] sci-fi movie" and "Gay man gets knife stuck in head; gay partner welds birdcage and tennis racket to it" will ever become tropes. Prove us wrong, TV networks.) The show won an award from [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GLAAD GLAAD]] for showing homosexual characters in a positive and non-stereotypical light.

'''''Mission Hill''''', a short-lived animated series that ran on the WB from 1999 to 2000 (then aired in reruns in 2002 on the fledgling AdultSwim block on CartoonNetwork), followed the lives of 24-year-old slacker Andy French and his FishOutOfWater brother Kevin, an OddCouple forced to share a loft apartment in a [[QuirkyTown quirky downtown neighborhood]]. 18 episodes were scheduled, but only 13 were created before the show's cancellation. Two of the last five unfinished episodes exist as animatic storyboards and three were released as scripts only.

* Voice actor TomKenny's take on one-off character Jimmy Briskin, a diminutive actor who played an Ewok in ''ReturnOfTheJedi'', landed him another job: the titular character of ''SpongebobSquarepants''. (He even repurposed the Jimmy Briskin voice as Spongebob's.)

* BeenThereShapedHistory: In Wally's flashback in "Plan 9 From Mission Hill", Creator/CharltonHeston was originally Charlton "Hestopolis" and Creator/PaulNewman was Paul "[=McNewman=]"; Wally notes they weren't "movie star names" so their agent has them adopt {{stage name}}s.
