Trivia: Corner Gas
  • Actor Allusion: While talking about the best Canadian TV shows, Wanda says she likes Street Legal. Oscar immediately asserts that Street Legal sucked.
    • Julie Stewart played a detective who investigated cold cases in the Canadian drama Cold Squad. When she appears in the episode "Grad '68" as a paint store clerk, Karen tells her that she is working on a cold case, only for Stewart to reply, "Cold case? Who cares?"
    • Several episodes mention a band called "Fast Exit," which according to The Other Wiki was Brent (Butt)'s band in high school. In the finale episode, Brent (Leroy) refers to them as the greatest band of all time, until he finds out they're doing a show in Wullerton, then immediately changes his tune and calls them a bunch of has-beens.
  • The Danza: Brent Butt plays Brent Leroy.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Notably Eric Peterson, who played Leon in Street Legal and a judge in This Is Wonderland before playing Oscar. Also Hank had a supporting role in the pilot episode of Monk.
  • Marathon Running: The Comedy Network likes to run complete marathons of the show at or around New Years.
  • Romance on the Set: Brent Butt and Nancy Robertson married in late 2005, during the airing of the third season. The two would later co-star in the series Hiccups.
