* ActorAllusion: Sora hilariously {{Lampshade}}s herself in a NoFourthWall session in one of the drama [=CDs=], where she complains about sounding like an "old lady." Though 34 (the age of Creator/YukoMizutani when she voiced Sora) doesn't seem to be ''that'' old, it certainly qualifies as DawsonCasting! In addition to this, another drama track consists of a radio show recording [=DJ'd=] by Sora, which alludes to how Yuko Mizutani ran a radio show years back.
* AdoredByTheNetwork: While it didn't save the block, Fox Kids touted this show like crazy come time to air the dub, especially in the midst of the Pokemon craze that allowed Creator/KidsWB to be the dominate Saturday Morning block at the time. The fact the show managed to win over a large part of that crowd allowed Fox Kids to stay afloat a bit longer.
* CelebrityVoiceActor: Lara Jill Miller was better known for her role as Samantha "Sam" Kanisky in the 1980's NBC sitcom ''Gimme a Break!''. ''People'' magazine wrote an article on her when she returned to Hollywood in 1999, just as Miller was voicing Kari for Digimon.
** Before Digimon, Philece Sampler was better known as Donna Love on ''[[Series/AnotherWorld Another World]]'' and Renée on ''[[Series/DaysofOurLives Days of Our Lives]]''.
* ChannelHop: Originally shown on Fox Kids, reruns were on Toon Disney's Jetix and are now on Nicktoons.
* TheDanza: Several of the kids' parents are named after their voice actors: Susumu and Yuuko Yagami after their voice actors Creator/SusumuChiba and Creator/YukoMizutani, Hiroaki Ishida after HiroakiHirata, Toshiko Takenouchi after Creator/ToshikoFujita, and Masami Izumi after Creator/MasamiKikuchi.
* FanNickname: The season is often referred to in the Anglosphere fandom as "01", to contrast with "[[Anime/DigimonAdventure02 02]]".
* FountainOfExpies: All Digimon protagonists since Tai are [[{{Expy}} Expies]] of him in one way or another.
* GodNeverSaidThat: Like most character names in the English dub, "Hikari" was shortened to "Kari." Unlike the others, however, no official material released in English has ever referred to her name in full as "Hikari 'Kari' Kamiya."
** WordOfDante: She is called "Hikari Kamiya" by Wizardmon in the English version of the highly compressed Digimon manhua. Which was produced by ''{{Tokyopop}}'', of all things, not Saban or Disney's Sensation Animation.
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: This series has not seen an official release in some time, with the exception of Creator/MadmanEntertainment' s DVD sets...[[NoExportForYou in Australia]].
** An American release has finally been [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2012-08-02/new-video-group-to-release-digimon-adventure-season-1-on-dvd announced]] and released!
** The original Japanese version is also available of Netflix with English subtitles.
* NamesTheSame: Hikari Yagami [Kari Kamiya], the Chosen Child of Light? OK, maybe not, [[Manga/DeathNote but never confuse the two]].
** Don't forget about Sora, who shares her name with [[Franchise/KingdomHearts a Keyblade welder]] and [[Anime/{{Naruto}} a monk]] ([[GenderBlenderName both of whom are male]]).
* TheOtherDarrin: Taichi is given a different voice actor (Jason Spisak) for the dubbed version of the fourth movie, [[RevengeOfTheSequel Revenge of Diaboromon]], because Joshua Seth (his original voice actor) had already retired from the entertainment business by that time.
** Takeru was replaced by Creator/MegumiHan in place of Creator/HirokoKonishi for the PSP game (as the latter had quit voice acting), who was cast because [[PromotedFanboy she had been a fan of the series as a child]] and thus was able to imitate Konishi's Takeru with ''uncanny'' accuracy.
** The PSP adaptation also has Devimon played by Creator/RyotaroOkiayu, as Creator/KanetoShiozawa, who voiced the character in the original anime, died in 2000. This is [[HilariousInHindsight amusing]] (or disconcerting) when one takes into account that Creator/AiMaeda, who voices Mimi, married Ryotaro Okiayu shortly before the game was released in Japan.
* [[PromotedFanboy Promoted Fangirl]]: Creator/MegumiHan, who plays Takeru in the PSP adaptation (replacing Creator/HirokoKonishi, who retired from voice acting), has been a big fan of the franchise since childhood.
* RealLifeWritesThePlot: When the crew went to visit Odaiba in order to see a reference for the real world scenes, the place ended up covered in fog. As a result, they decided to cover Odaiba in fog, creating a major part of the Vamdemon (Myotismon) arc.
* RelationshipVoiceActor: If you're an unrepentant fangirl, this allows for a probably-unintentional-yet-still-amusing, very brief moment, when Matt's dad helps carry Wizardmon around. Ishida and Hirata's characters in ''{{Manga/Saiyuki}}'' do that for each other quite a lot...
* [[TalkingToHimself Talking To Themselves]]:
** In the Mexican Spanish dub, both Hikari and Gatomon shares the same voice actress (Cristina Hernandez) and they literally talking to themselves.
** Joe, his two older brothers, and his [[AllThereInTheManual CD drama-only]] parents are all voiced by Masami Kikuchi. Including his ''mother''. Indeed, a CrowningMomentOfAwesome for Mr. Kikuchi--one interview with him and Koushirou's [=VA=], Umi Tenjin, talks about how surprised the other actors were when he switched between all of the characters in real time.
** Tentomon, for a brief moment in the dub, when Izzy's parents find out about him.
** Agumon and Shellmon are both voiced by Tom Fahn in the English dub.
** Mostly avoided with [=DemiDevimon=], but he does interact with Digitamamon, another of the Digimon that Creator/DerekStephenPrince voiced in the dub.
* TechnologyMarchesOn: The movie made a plot point out of Infermon taking over the phone system, forcing Izzy to get a wireless satellite uplink. This doesn't mean as much now that wired connections and phone modems have become obsolete.
* ToyShip: Really any potential ship is this since the kids range from 2nd grade to 6th grade (though the English dub seems to have aged up the older kids to middle school) but TK and Kari are the most egregious example being only 8 years old.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: According to [[http://jippy-kandi.tumblr.com/post/51900665766/digimon-creator-speaks-about-sorato-and-taiora-behind this interview]] with the series' co-creator, the infamous 02 epilogue, in which Sora and Yamato ended up married was originally planned for this series.
** WordOfGod states that Kari originally ''wasn't'' supposed to be a [=DigiDestined=], and was only supposed to be a MysteriousWaif side character. Come the middle of the series, when the staff wanted to add a new character to the seven, they decided to expand Kari's character by tossing her onto the team. This kind of explains her CanonSue tendencies, if you think about it.
*** For some reason in the dub Gatomon was initially made male inversing ShesAManInJapan, three episodes were even recorded with Gatomon as a boy luckily the dubbers realized their mistake before it was too late and rectified it before any episodes with male Gatomon aired and the unfortunate problem of a boy Gatomon turning into the very female Angewomon. Though this begs the question if that meant they didn't get to see the original episode to see that Gatomon was female or TheyJustDidntCare
