* ActorAllusion: Creator/BradGarrett voiced Torque, a BountyHunter who rode in a spacecraft shaped like a motorcycle and after a while could clone himself at will. Those were traits also shared by The Main Man himself, SelfDemonstrating/{{Lobo}} -- who also happened to be voiced by Brad Garrett in his Franchise/DCAnimatedUniverse appearances.
* BannedEpisode:
** "Super Nova", a VerySpecialEpisode that aired exactly twice before being removed from circulation. It used [[ILoveNuclearPower superpowers caused by phasing through radiation]] as metaphor for drugs, complete with ensuing withdrawal.
** "Inside Job" and "Conspiracy," both of which dealt with terrorist themes and featured the same villains, ended up getting dropped from syndication after 9/11.
* CastingGag: Epoch and Era of the Chlorm are voiced by the late Jonathan Harris and Billy Mumy, who both previously worked together on ''Series/LostInSpace''.
* {{Defictionalization}}: The show itself.
* DisownedAdaptation: For unexplained reasons, John Lasseter is not a fan of the cartoon series.
* ExiledFromContinuity: Per word of Aaron Sparrow, Pixar has barred elements from this series from being used in other Toy Story media (to the point where they're not allowed to even acknowledge the existence of the Buzz Lightyear cartoon in universe), apparently due to John Lasseter's dislike of the series.
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Only ''Buzz Lightyear: The Adventure Begins'' is out on VHS and DVD. The rest of the series is unaccounted for, except for ''one'' episode, "The Planet of the Lost," which is on a VHS so rare that it usually goes for up to '''$70''' on eBay (it was presumably included in select Buzz Lightyear toys during the 2003 holiday season).
* MissingEpisode: When the series was rerun on Creator/DisneyChannel and Creator/ToonDisney, "Inside Job," "Conspiracy" and "Super Nova" were left off the schedule. (The first two dealt with terrorist assassination plots, which is taboo since 9/11, and the third dealt with substance abuse.)
* TheOtherDarrin[=/=]TheOtherMarty: In ''The Adventure Begins'', Creator/TimAllen reprises the role of Buzz. For the series proper, however, Creator/PatrickWarburton took over. (In ''The Adventure Begins'', Buzz was voiced by Warburton to begin with, but for the DTV release, Warburton's lines were redubbed by Allen. When it was re-cut into three regular episodes, Warburton's lines for Buzz were used in order to remain consistent with the rest of the series.)
** Depending on the episode, XR is voiced either by Larry Miller or Neil Flynn.
* PlayingAgainstType: Warp is voiced by Creator/DiedrichBader. Yes, [[Series/TheDrewCareyShow that]] Diedrich Bader. While shows such as ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'' and ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' would go on to change this, at the time this was a pretty big case of the trope.
** Adam Carolla was the host of The Man Show and yet Disney cast him as Commander Nebula. Anyone find this strange?
* SpecialGuest: Creator/RicardoMontalban, Mills Lane, Creator/JonFavreau, Nikki Cox, Creator/PhilLaMarr, Creator/CreeSummer, Creator/EricIdle, and Peter [=McNicol=] have all provided guest voices for the show.
* TalkingToHimself:
** Creator/PatrickWarburton does it in ''half the episodes'', as he voices Buzz ''and'' the [[LittleGreenMen LGMs]]!
** Creator/DiedrichBader also does it in "Ancient Evil," when he plays Natron the First and Natron's victim, a veeery unlucky Warp Darkmatter.
** Creator/PaulRugg also does this with two recurring characters, Ed and Cosmo.
