* ActorAllusion: Officer Earl Devereaux is voiced by Mr. T, and his character sure acts a lot like him. One of his lines also includes a variation on "I pity the fool." He has a bald spot which is the exact opposite of Mr. T's bald head with Mohawk, and T-shaped facial hair. Not to mention that [[spoiler:during the food flood as he's carrying his wife and son on a raft, he jumps through a fallen tortilla chip and comes out the other side, [[ImpactSilhouette a "T"-shaped hole visible right behind him]].]]
* AdoredByTheNetwork: The TV series initially was this, to a level rivaling ''Teen Titans Go'' and ''The Amazing World of Gumball''. However, poor critical reception led to [[ScrewedByTheNetwork the opposite happening]] within several months.
* ActorSharedBackground mixed in with FunnyAneurysmMoment: Averted. Flint hurriedly admits to Sam that he loves peanut butter, then lies about being allergic to it when Sam says she has a peanut allergy. Bill Hader (Flint's voice actor, and yes, the same one who plays Stefon on ''SNL'') actually does have a peanut allergy in real life.
* CastTheExpert: The WNN anchor is played by real-life weatherman Al Roker.
* TheOtherDarrin: Terry Crews replaces Mr. T in the sequel.
** ''None'' of the movie actors returned for the animated series, because the production moved to Toronto, Canada.
* PlayingAgainstType: Anna Faris as a HollywoodNerd in contrast to some of her ditzy roles.
* RecursiveAdaptation: A movie novelization of the film was released.
* ScrewedByTheNetwork: Explained from AdoredByTheNetwork example above, the series had constant reruns along with ''Teen Titans Go'' and ''Gumball'', however poor ratings led to the series being pulled sometime in April, where ''WesternAnimation/Ben102016'' had took it's place.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** There was a cut scene from the movie where Flint and the Mayor were sword fighting using celery sticks.
** The directors wanted to the theme from ''Film/{{Xanadu}}'' to play over the closing credits, but couldn't secure the rights.
** The TV series was originally commisioned to air on Creator/{{Teletoon}}, but instead, it aired on Creator/{{YTV}}.
