* HoistByHisOwnPetard: The show's lavish visual style came from Turner giving the creators more money. Unfortunately, the price tag eventually became so hefty that it ended up leading to the series' cancellation.
* TheOtherDarrin[=/=]TheOtherMarty: In the pilot mini-series, Niddler was voiced by [=Roddy McDowall=] and spoke perfectly clear English. When the show switched to syndication, however, Creator/FrankWelker took over the part and Niddler started to speak with [[SpeechImpairedAnimal a squawking voice with bird screech accents]]. To remain consistent, Niddler's voice in the first five episodes was redubbed with Welker.
