* HeartwarmingInHindsight: While it's not a home that's become a shrine to Creator/RikMayall, an area in Hammersmith, London which has been used to film {{Series/Bottom}} has become a shrine for Mayall, with people leaving memorials for The Peoples' Poet, and having him be celebrated for his work in both The Young Ones AND Bottom.
* HilariousInHindsight: While Neil was intended to be a hippy, nowadays he feels like a prediction of the [[EmoTeen emo]] subculture.
** In "Boring", Billy Balowksi impersonates a Dalek. Alexi Sayle would later guest star in [[DoctorWhoS22E6RevelationOfTheDaleks Revelation of the Daleks]].

Added DiffLines:

* RetroactiveRecognition:
** A very young Creator/StephenFry, Creator/HughLaurie, Creator/EmmaThompson and Creator/BenElton as the UpperClassTwit team in "Bambi". Elton also appeared in the pilot episode as the host of ''Nozin' Aroun'''.
** [[Creator/MontyPython Terry Jones]] as the drunk vicar in the episode "Nasty".
** Hale & Pace as the grave-diggers.
** Creator/LennyHenry as the fascist postman in the last episode, "Summer Holiday".
** [[Series/AbsolutelyFabulous Jennifer Saunders]] as Helen Mucus ("Time") and again in "Interesting" as Sue, and [[Series/TheVicarOfDibley Dawn French]] as the Easter Bunny, the Christian who barges into the house before getting squashed by a giant sandwich and Satan.
** [[Series/HaveIGotNewsForYou Paul Merton]] makes a very brief appearance as a yokel in "Time".
** [[{{Series/Cracker}} Rob]][[Film/JamesBond bie]] [[Film/HarryPotter Coltrane]] as a bouncer in the second episode, "Oil", and a Victorian scientist in "Bambi".
*** He's also the pirate Captain Blood, in "Time".
** Tony Robinson (Baldrick from ''Series/{{Blackadder}}'') as Dr [[Series/NotTheNineOClockNews Not-the-nine-o-clock-news]].
** From that show we have [[Series/AlasSmithAndJones Griff Rhys Jones alongside Mel Smith]] as 'Bambi' Gascogine and the front-desk guard respectively.
** Norman Lovett (the first Holly in ''Series/RedDwarf'') owned the penny arcade across the road. Chris Barrie appeared as a Napoleonic sailor in an animated painting.
** The list goes on. It was chock-full of cameos, all of which are listed in the end credits of the last episode.
*** In fairness very few of them were cameos as such because with a few exceptions (Creator/TerryJones, Smith and Jones, Lenny Henry) all of the extras/one-shot characters were then-unknown fellow comedians from the London alternative comedy scene, in particular the Comedy Store. It says something for the ridiculous fertility of that late-70s early-80s scene that it germinated so many television and film careers that in retrospect this has one of the most ridiculously [[AllStarCast star studded-casts]] in television history.
