Trivia: Cucumber Quest

  • Ascended Fanon: Almond is ambidextrous. Gigi actually uses the phrase "Sure, why not" word-for-word.
  • Development Gag: The 2014 April Fools joke. That bad, weebish art was from Gigi's first concepts of the comic from way back when.
  • Fan Community Nicknames: Cuquistadors.
  • Milestone Celebration: Not for the comic itself, but the 2014 April Fools joke is on the 10th year since the Humble Beginnings of the series when it was first conceptualized. It even uses her art from the first drafts.
  • Trolling Creator: Gigi jokingly insisted on Twitter that one of the clowns from the Melody Kingdom who accompanied the party on the blimp was not killed by Mutemaster, and let it go on as a Running Gag over twitter. She insisted the clown was incinerated - not in the crash, but when he got too close to the magical, talking gate, named Mezzo, as the Nightmare Knight blasted him down. Then it turns out the clown was alive and was hanging out with Mezzo the whole time. The reactions on twitter are hilarious.
    • Similarly, at the beginning of the Flower Kingdom arc, many people noticed that Nautilus had suddenly disappeared from the comic. When asked about it multiple times on Twitter, Gigi's response was always something along the lines of "who?" before Nautilus finally reappeared, albeit separated from the other main characters.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • Gigi considered making a comic with Tartelette and Baguette and their bakery as the focus.
    • Almond originally had blue hair.
    • In older designs, Cucumber's hair is less scruffy, whilst Carrot's is more so.
  • Why Fandom Can't Have Nice Things: Due to some nasty comments made on a post on her tumblr note , Gigi is permanently leaving the website due to "frustrations with the site and its community" reaching a breaking point for her. She will at least, thankfully, keep all of her previous art and posts up for everyone.
  • Word of Gay: Gigi confirms that Peridot has a crush on Almond.
  • Word of God
    • Word of God on Cucumber's and Almond's ages:
      Cucumber and Almond are just Kids. Almond is a Slightly Younger Kid.
    • We at least know that Cucumber is not 9. Because that's how old his father thinks he is.
    • Later Word of God confirms that the characters having vague ages applies to the entire cast. The vague age groups are:
      • Slightly Younger Kid Group - Almond, Peridot, Cosmo
      • Kid Group - Nautilus, Mandolin, Panpipe
      • Not 9 Group - Cucumber
      • Younger Adult Group - Saturday, Carrot, Parfait, BLTs, Piano, Bakerette sisters
      • Yes, Heís an Adult Group - Bacon
      • Adult Adult Group - Cabbage, Cordelia, Lute, Cymbal, Caboodle
      • Not as Old as the Mustache Makes Him Look Group - King Kelp
      • N/A?? - Dream Oracle, Nightmare Knight, Disaster Masters
    • We only learn from Gigi's tumblr that Piano's Dad's name is "King Clarinet". He's never mentioned by name in the comic itself.
    • According to Gigi's Tumblr, some of the other capsules available in the ESPMCWSCM include:
    • Gigi has stated on Twitter that Bacon has a brother, and that he has a TV show, strongly implying that Brisket Sweats is Bacon's brother.
