Trivia: Bizarre
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Mike Myers appeared on the show as Timmy Byner. Luba Goy who guested on the show would go on to the Royal Canadian Air Farce. Howie Mandel also guested on the show and went on to do St. Elsewhere, Bobby's World and Deal Or No Deal
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: John Byner voiced the titular characters of The Ant and the Aardvark and would go on to voice Gurgi in 1985's The Black Cauldron
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: Though the show is on DVD in it's uncensored Showtime version, the best of Bizarre DVDs are not only missing episodes (Which is no surprise so see missing episodes), but some sketches are missing due to music clearance issues and to top it all off, most episodes are missing their end credits which included plugs for the Royal York Hotel in Toronto and Tilden Rent-A-Car. Some episodes still have the original end credits because they are going on during live-action sketches.
  • Missing Episode: 10 volumes of The Best of Bizarre on DVD sets total 100 episodes so 41 episodes have not seen DVD release yet. Those who brought a defective volume 7 are missing half of the episodes on the DVD.
