Trivia: Baby Blues

Trivia for the cartoon series:

  • Actor Allusion: In one episode, Darryl refers to Wanda's aunt who does imitations of old Saturday Night Live characters, including Julia Sweeney's "Pat" character.
  • Development Hell: This adaptation took four years to produce.
  • Executive Meddling: Extensively. It's been said it was a struggle to even keep the name Baby Blues. Either way, the end result was a Simpsons clone that the creators have branded as an Old Shame and barely anyone remembers, since it was on The WB back before it aired teen shows like Dawson's Creek and Buffy the Vampire Slayer (when it aired average or below average comedy shows, like The Wayans Brothers, Musclenote , Hypenote  and the Married... with Children expy Unhappily Ever After).
  • Hey, It's That Voice!:
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: The animated series may never be released on DVD for two reasons: 1) It's not beloved enough for fans to demand a DVD release, and 2) The theme song is a real song ("It's All Been Done" by the Barenaked Ladies), which means it'll be edited to avoid paying licensing fees (like what happened with Married... with Children when they replaced Frank Sinatra's "Love and Marriage" with an upbeat, instrumental clone of that song).
  • A random incidental character in a comic strip bears a resemblance to Carl Bitterman.
