* 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/{{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.
** "Inside Job" and "Conspiracy" also were taken off circulation after 9/11 due to terrorist themes.
* CastingGag: Epoch & Era of the Chlorm are voiced by the late Jonathan Harris & Billy Mumy, who both previously worked together on ''Series/LostInSpace''.
* {{Defictionalization}}: The show itself.
* 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. (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: [[{{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 cast him as Commander Nebula. Anyone find this strange?
* SpecialGuest: Creator/RicardoMontalban, Mills Lane, Creator/JonFavreau, Nikki Cox, Creator/PhilLaMarr, Creator/CreeSummer, Creator/EricIdle, & 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.
