Trivia / Clone High

  • Actor Allusion: That janitor named Glenn...Doesn't he sound familiar?
    • Word of God even says that the janitor from Scrubs actually is named Glenn Matthews, and confirms that he got the name from the character from Clone High.
  • Development Hell: Chris Miller and Phil Lord have said that they do want to revive the show with the successes of The LEGO Movie and the 21 Jump Street films, but they're currently hung up on how to do it and whether or not the humor would have to be "defanged."
  • No Export for You: Averted to an extent in the United States as the Canadian DVD release can be legally imported into that country and play on all standard (NTSC) DVD players, as Canada is also in Region 1.
  • Popularity Polynomial: The show has been on a recent upswing in terms of popularity, helped by co-creators Phil Lord and Christopher Miller going on to make 21 Jump Street and The LEGO Movie.
  • What Could Have Been: According to this interview, several plans for season 2 and 3 were made, such as another addition to the Love Triangle, possibly an older teacher clone, Gandhi revealed as being the clone of Gary Coleman instead of Mahatma Gandhi due to a DNA mixup, and time travel used to extend the clones high school years in a parody of Beverly Hills 90210.
  • Word of God: This interview with the creators reveals a few things. The overall plot they had for the series was for season one to be junior year, season two the first half of senior year, season three the second half, and at the end they would go through a wormhole and repeat senior year in season four, and if there was a season five, they'd make it college.
    • It also states that season two could've started out with the three main characters walking like in the pilot (except to senior year), having forgotten what had happened over the course of the summer, and putting the pieces of the puzzle together to find out how they got out of the cliffhanger.
    • Also, due to the controversy of Gandhi's character, the creators had to pitch two alternatives of the show to MTV, one where Gandhi mysteriously disappears and turns out to have somehow sacrificed himself in the meat locker to save his friends, which would just altogether drop his character from the show, and the other where they keep the character while writing in that there was a mix up in the lab and Gandhi is actually the clone of Gary Coleman.
