Trivia / Dave the Barbarian

  • Actor Allusion: This isn't the first time Jeff Bennett's been a Lemony Narrator in a Doug Langdale-helmed series.
  • Big Name Fan: Rumor has it that John Cena desperately wants WWE to team up with Disney so he can play Dave in a live-action movie.
  • Casting Gag: The casting of Joan and Melissa Rivers.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: In addition to being trapped in cancellation/hiatus limbo, the show has NEVER been released to DVD. Your best bet of seeing this show is Youtube, they got every single episode. In fact the only merchandise the show ever got was some McDonald's toys.
  • Real-Life Relative: Princess Irmoplotz and Queen Zonthara are voiced by Melissa Rivers and Joan Rivers, respectively.
  • Screwed by the Network: The show was one of Disney's most popular cartoons at the time, and had great ratings, and critics loved it. Gregory Peck even called Dave "The next Mickey Mouse". And yet without explanation they ... well, they didn't quite cancel it, but simply decided not to make any new episodes and dropped all mention of the show off of their website. Twelve years later and apparently they still haven't announced whether they have officially cancelled it or not.
  • Talking to Themselves: King Throktar and Queen Glimia are voiced by the same people who voice Uncle Oswidge and Princess Candy, respectively.
