* AdoredByTheNetwork: For the longest time in the mid-90's, Nick Jr, in addition to its regular timeslot, would put Rupert on any time there was a hole in their schedule. This changed once ''Blue's Clues'' came around.
* ChannelHop: After that, Nelvana arranged a swap of programs between Nick Jr. and Creator/{{CBS}}: ''WesternAnimation/{{Franklin}}'' would now air on CBS' saturday morning lineup (which was programmed by Nelvana at that point; reruns of this show were part of it), while ''Rupert'' would move to Nick Jr. again. ''Franklin'' ended up being the only show held over for the succeeding ''Nick Jr. on CBS'' block starting in 2000.
* 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.
