* BeamMeUpScotty: Despite what you may have heard, the character's official name is Rupert Bear, not Rupert '''the''' Bear. The latter came from the title song to the original 70's TV adaptation.
* CrossDressingVoices: Canadian Creator/JulieLemieux as the title character. Doubles as a FakeBrit.
* DawsonCasting
* HeyItsThatVoice: Canadians will recognize Bill's voice as Torquil Campbell, lead singer of the rock band ''Stars''. Which makes his HollywoodToneDeaf all the more amusing.

** Podgy Pig is also known the world over as [[WesternAnimation/JohnnyBravo Scooby Dooby DOO!]]
** The Professor is secretly both [[WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfZelda King Harkinian]] and [[WesternAnimation/AtomicBetty Maximus I.Q.]]
