* ActorAllusion: Creator/BradGarrett voiced Torque, a bounty hunter 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/{{DCAU}} 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.
* {{Defictionalization}}: The show itself.
* HeyItsThatVoice: In the show, Buzz is voiced by Creator/PatrickWarburton.
** We also have another ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' veteran; Creator/WayneKnight, as Zurg.
*** And, to a lesser extent, the late Barney Martin, who played Jerry's dad on the aforementioned show, voiced the president of Gargantua.
*** Also, [[Series/{{Seinfeld}} Peterman]] as Mira's dad.
** One more ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' veteran is on the cast: Steve Hytner AKA Kenny Bania voiced Ty Parsec.
** As well as Creator/NicoleSullivan, AKA [[WesternAnimation/KimPossible Shego]] now being a ''[[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe Blue]]''[[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe Skinned]] ActionGirl.
** XL is voiced by Creator/BobcatGoldthwait.
** As noted, Creator/BradGarrett is Torque.
** Huh, looks like [[BabylonFive Vir Coto]] gained some weight when he played Booster.
** [[Series/ThirdRockFromTheSun French Stewart]] is unmistakeable as Rentwhistle Swack.
** You might recognize Dr. Ozma Furbanna as another action girl, [[Franchise/{{Terminator}} Miss Sarah Connor]].
** NOS-4-A2 is Creator/CraigFerguson.
** The villain in the series' final episode is [[Creator/MontyPython Eric Idle]].
** The SufficientlyAdvancedAliens are [[Series/LostInSpace Dr. Smith and Will Robinson]] and Creator/FrankWelker.
** The [[BlatantLies totally not based on Bill Gates]] villain Norbert Klerm was played by Mitchell Whitfield, best known as [[WesternAnimation/{{Witch}} Prince Phobos]] or [[Series/{{Friends}} Rachel's no-good fiancée Barry]].
** Madame President of the Galactic Alliance is [[WesternAnimation/TheMarvelousMisadventuresOfFlapjack Bubbie]].
** Creator/DavidWarner played a treacherous Tangean noble in one episode.
** [[LargeHam Professor Von Madman!]] was [[Series/TheDrewCareyShow Ryan]] [[Series/WhoseLineIsItAnyway Stiles]].
** The ChristmasEpisode gives us [[VideoGame/MonkeyIsland the Ghost Pirate LeChuck]] as Santa.
** Booster's father is voiced by Fred Willard, who has been seen in ''ModernFamily'', ''Back to You'' and ''WesternAnimation/WallE''.
** Heck, there are dozens of these: Ricardo Montalban, Mills Lane, Creator/JonFavreau, Nikki Cox, Creator/PhilLaMarr, Creator/CreeSummer, & Peter [=McNicol=] have all provided guest voices for the show.
** Cosmo (the alien who owns the diner) is WesternAnimation/{{Freakazoid}}.
** [[WesternAnimation/BobbysWorld Uncle Ted]] is a bug scientist who [[ShrinkRay shrinks Buzz down]] in one episode.
** Gravatina is [[{{Reno 911}} Trudy Weigel]].
** [[WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether Spanky Hamm]] is Commander Nebula. It's also a mystery on why Disney hired the host of the Man Show for this role.
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Only ''Buzz Lightyear: The Adventure Begins'' is out on VHS and DVD. The rest of the series is unaccounted for.
* MissingEpisode: When the series was rerun on Creator/DisneyChannel, "Inside Job," "Conspiracy" and "Super Nova" were left off the schedule. (The first two dealt with terrorism assassination plots 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. (When ''The Adventure Begins'' was re-cut into three regular episodes, Warburton also re-dubbed Buzz's lines in order to remain consistent with the rest of the series.)
* PlayingAgainstType: [[{{Badass}} 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 casted him as Commander Nebula. Anyone find this strange?
* TalkingToHimself:
** Patrick Warburton does it in ''half the episodes'', as he voices Buzz ''and'' the [[LittleGreenMen LGMs]]!
** Diedrich Bader also does it in "Ancient Evil," when he plays Natron the First and Natron's victim, a veeery unlucky Warp Darkmatter.
