* DevelopmentHell: "Princess Pi vs. Dr. 8" appears to have entered this. The list of ''Princess Pi'' villains released back in 2011 showed a drawing of Dr. 8, and described his gimmick as using mathematical calculations to determine the most effective evil schemes. Additionally, a post Peter made on the Toon Zone forum compared his personality to that of Creator/CharlieSheen. Despite all these details, Peter never gave a release date for the story.[[note]]He didn't even officially confirm the title, "Princess Pi vs. Dr. 8", but the fact that it fits the IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming makes it a likely guess.[[/note]] For all we know, he might ''never'' produce it.
** Peter has also had to push back the second part of "Sam Adams vs. True Love". Unlike most instances of Platypus Comix readers waiting longer than expected for a story's conclusion, this delay had comics from other series (such as the Variety Section and ''Webcomic/FreeSpirit'') and an issue of ''BANG! The Entertainment Paper'' released in the meanwhile.
* MeaningfulReleaseDate: "Princess Pi vs. Everything" kicked off the comic on New Year's Day 2011, or 01.01.11.
* ViralMarketing: In the months building up to the series premiere, "π" appeared at various places on the Website/PlatypusComix main page (such as [[http://platypuscomix.net/top162.jpg a jack-o-lantern]] in the banner and Tuan Nuaghen's eyes in the link to the ''Webcomic/ScrambledEggs'' archive).
** Even earlier than that, after Peter Paltridge wrote some bios for ''Webcomic/ElectricWonderland'' characters, and updated the ones for ''Webcomic/{{Mulberry}}'' and ''Webcomic/{{Keiki}}'', he placed the symbol next to redrawn links to all the series' character bios. This provided the first hint that a new Platypus Comix series was in store.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** Peter originally designed Princess Pi as [[http://www.toonzone.net/forums/showpost.php?p=3752478&postcount=1 a little girl]], but then he considered the possibility that more people would want to read about a hot, older princess.
** The original list of ''Princess Pi'' villains portrayed the Totally Nazis as fascist versions of the ''WesternAnimation/TotallySpies'' leads.
** If the AlphaBitch trope still had its original title, "The [[Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch Libby]]," then "Princess Pi vs. The Alpha Bitch" would have a correspondingly different title, and Pi's first appearance in that story would have gone like [[http://www.toonzone.net/forums/showthread.php?288774-quot-Princess-Pi-vs-the-Alpha-quot-Talkback&p=3927980#post3927980 this]].
** Opposite Guy's inclusion on the aforementioned baddie roster, and the [[http://www.platypuscomix.net/princesspi/index.php?issue=4&page=10 ending]] of "Princess Pi vs. Opposite Guy", suggest abandoned plans for him to become a regular enemy.
