* ActorAllusion: Sora hilariously {{Lampshade}}s herself in a NoFourthWall session in one of the drama [=CDs=], where she complains about sounding like an "old lady." Though 38 (the age of Creator/YukoMizutani when she voiced Sora) doesn't seem to be ''that'' old, it certainly qualifies as DawsonCasting! In addition to this, another drama track consists of a radio show recording [=DJ'd=] by Sora, which alludes to how Yuko Mizutani ran a radio show years back.
* CelebrityVoiceActor: Lara Jill Miller was better known for her role in the 1980's sitcom ''Gimmie A Break!''. ''People'' magazine wrote an article on her when she returned to Hollywood in 1999, just as Miller was voicing Kari for Digimon.
* ChannelHop: Originally shown on Fox Kids, reruns were on Toon Disney's Jetix and are now on Nicktoons.
* FountainOfExpies: All Digimon protagonists since Tai are [[{{Expy}} Expies]] of him in one way or another.
* GodNeverSaidThat: Like most character names in the English dub, "Hikari" was shortened to "Kari." Unlike the others, however, no official material released in English has ever referred to her name in full as "Hikari 'Kari' Kamiya."
** WordOfDante: She is called "Hikari Kamiya" by Wizardmon in the English version of the highly compressed Digimon manhua. Which was produced by ''{{Tokyopop}}'', of all things, not Saban or Disney's Sensation Animation.
* HeyItsThatVoice: The Brazilian Portuguese dub is a decent source: T.K. is Film/HarryPotter, Sora is [[JusticeLeague Wonder Woman]] (her mother used to be Series/WonderWoman, as well), Izzy is [[TotalDramaIsland Harold]] (like in Hungary), Matt is [[Film/TheMuppets Kermit the frog]], Tai is [[WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy Edd]], and Joe is [[SaintSeiya Pegasus Seiya]].
** In the English dub, before he was a Digimon, Metal Greymon [[DayOfTheDead ran a monkey farm]].
** In "Out of the Town", the unnamed teenager is sounds like [[Anime/DigimonAdventure02 Yolei]].
** Several voice actors would go on to dub other anime, such as ''{{Franchise/Naruto}}'', ''{{Manga/Bleach}}'', and ''{{Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex}}''. Several others were already known for their roles in ''{{Manga/Trigun}}'' and ''Anime/CowboyBebop''.
** A good many voice actors also worked on ''Anime/{{Robotech}}'', which is appropriate considering how both series were gateway shows for many anime fans.
** In the Finnish dub, Puppetmon (or Pinomon, [[DubNameChange as he is known there]]) is [[MickeyMouse Mickey freaking Mouse]]. Hearing the voice of the beloved cartoon rodent coming from the mouth of a [[PsychopathicManchild Psychopathic Manchild-Puppet]] is a little bit jarring, to say the least.
** The Hungarian cast seems spectacular: Matt is [[WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers Tina Belcher]], Izzy is WesternAnimation/{{Ed|EddNEddy}}d, Sora is [[WesternAnimation/TotalDrama the actual Bridgette]], Mimi is [[WesternAnimation/{{Cyberchase}} Inez]], Gabumon is [[WesternAnimation/TuffPuppy Dudley Puppy]], Tai is [[WesternAnimation/SouthPark the usual Butters]], and T.K. is [[Film/TheMuppets Miss Piggy]].
** Due to the fact that Saban Entertainment was responsible for both Digimon AND Power Rangers a lot of voice actors worked on both. Wendee Lee,most known for voicing young T.K was the voice of Scorpina from MightyMorphinPowerRangers and Alpha 6 in PowerRangersinSpace and PowerRangersLostGalaxy,she even uses her T.K voice for the latter. Robert Axelrod who voiced Wizardmon and Armadillomon voiced Lord Zedd and Finster in Power Rangers along with various other roles. Lex Lang who voiced Wargreymon had voiced TheDragon Rygog in PowerRangersTurbo and the dragon Ecliptor in the following season PowerRangersInSpace. DerekStephenPrince who voiced DemiDevimon,Piedmon,Ken,and Veemon voiced TheScrappy villain Elgar in PowerRangersTurbo and PowerRangersInSpace. And that's just the tip of the iceberg.
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: This series has not seen an official release in some time, with the exception of Creator/MadmanEntertainment' s DVD sets...[[NoExportForYou in Australia]].
** An American release has finally been [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2012-08-02/new-video-group-to-release-digimon-adventure-season-1-on-dvd announced]] and released!
** The original Japanese version is also available of Netflix with English subtitles.
* NamesTheSame: Hikari Yagami [Kari Kamiya], the Chosen Child of Light? OK, maybe not, [[Manga/DeathNote but never confuse the two]].
** Don't forget about Sora, who shares her name with [[Franchise/KingdomHearts a Keyblade welder]] and [[Anime/{{Naruto}} a monk]] ([[GenderBlenderName both of whom are male]]).
* TheOtherDarrin: Taichi is given a different voice actor (Jason Spisak) for the dubbed version of the fourth movie, [[RevengeOfTheSequel Revenge of Diaboromon]].
* RealLifeWritesThePlot: When the crew went to visit Odaiba in order to see a reference for the real world scenes, the place ended up covered in fog. As a result, they decided to cover Odaiba in fog, creating a major part of the Vamdemon (Myotismon) arc.
* [[TalkingToHimself Talking To Themselves]]:
** In the Mexican Spanish dub, both Hikari and Gatomon shares the same voice actress (Cristina Hernandez) and they literally talking to themselves.
** Joe, his two older brothers, and his [[AllThereInTheManual CD drama-only]] parents are all voiced by Masami Kikuchi. Including his ''mother''. Indeed, a CrowningMomentOfAwesome for Mr. Kikuchi--one interview with him and Koushirou's [=VA=], Umi Tenjin, talks about how surprised the other actors were when he switched between all of the characters in real time.
** Tentomon, for a brief moment in the dub, when Izzy's parents find out about him.
* TheDanza: Several of the kids' parents are named after their voice actors: Susumu and Yuuko Yagami after their voice actors Creator/SusumuChiba and Creator/YukoMizutani, Hiroaki Ishida after HiroakiHirata, Toshiko Takenouchi after ToshikoFujita, and Masami Izumi after MasamiKikuchi.
* ToyShip: Really any potential ship is this since the kids range from 2nd grade to 6th grade (though the English dub seems to have aged up the older kids to middle school) but TK and Kari are the most egregious example being only 8 years old.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: According to [[http://jippy-kandi.tumblr.com/post/51900665766/digimon-creator-speaks-about-sorato-and-taiora-behind this interview]] with the series' co-creator, the infamous 02 epilogue, in which Sora and Yamato ended up married was originally planned for this series.
** WordOfGod states that Kari originally ''wasn't'' supposed to be a [=DigiDestined=], and was only supposed to be a MysteriousWaif side character. Come the middle of the series, when the staff wanted to add a new character to the seven, they decided to expand Kari's character by tossing her onto the team. This kind of explains her CanonSue tendencies, if you think about it.
*** For some reason in the dub Gatomon was initially made male inversing ShesAManInJapan, three episodes were even recorded with Gatomon as a boy luckily the dubbers realized their mistake before it was too late and rectified it before any episodes with male Gatomon aired and the unfortunate problem of a boy Gatomon turning into the very female Angewomon. Though this begs the question if that meant they didn't get to see the original episode to see that Gatomon was female or TheyJustDidntCare
