Trivia: Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist

  • The Danza: Almost all characters are credited in the style of "Laura Silverman as Laura". Arguably the characters also play themselves. H. Jon Benjamin as Benjamin Katz puts a little bit of a spin on it, where the actor's last name is the character's first name. Perhaps they didn't call him "Jon" since his father was already named Jonathan.
  • Marathon Running: Dr. Katz's sixth season contained 18 episodes; however, only six of them aired as planned before the series was cancelled. Comedy Central decided to air nine of the twelve unaired episodes in a 1999 Christmas Eve marathon, along with three reruns from the previous season, totalling six hours. However, the remaining three were initially unaired in the U.S. until 2002.
  • Short Run in Peru: The last three episodes, "Bakery Ben", "Uncle Nothing", and "Lerapy", didn't air in the U.S. until 2002, despite airing overseas before that.
  • Technology Marches On: In one episode, Dr. Katz tells Stanley and Julie a joke about a guy who was coming home early from a business trip, but catches his wife having sex with another man. The husband is devastated, and goes to see a shrink. After describing the problem, the therapist wonders, "Maybe she didn't get the fax." Nowadays, when such a message would likely be sent via cell phone or email, it's less likely that someone would send a fax saying they'll be home early.
