Trivia: George of the Jungle
  • Deleted Scene: Some scenes were cut from the film, including:
    • George having to save Ursula from a quicksand pit
    • At the mall, George starts swinging around the store and goes on an adventure with Beatrice's dog
    • Lyle returning from the African jail and arriving at the engagement party, completely bald and with an eyepatch
    • George and Ursula reflecting about the city at a fountain, paying off the "What mean embarrassed?" scene from earlier
  • Hey, It's That Guy!
    • In the first and second movie, Lyle Van De Groot is Lowell from the Sitcom Wings
    • Thor is from the same sitcom, playing guest character R.J. Biggins.
    • Thor is ALSO Jerry Markovic from ER and Ben Thomasson from Men in Trees.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!
  • The Other Darrin: The sequel recast the roles of George, Ursula, and Ursula's mother; only Thomas Haden Church (Lyle) and John Cleese (Ape) reprised their roles from the first movie. It is said that Brendan Fraser was offered to come back but didn't want to go through the training process to get his body to the build needed for the role. He even came up with a joke for the movie that he would come back a bloated mess and be lured off the set by donuts, but it wasn't used.
  • Talking to Himself: In the 2008 series Magnolia and Tookie Tookie are both voiced by Tabitha St. Germain.
  • Trope Namer: For Watch Out for That Tree!, of course.
  • Joel Hodgson was a script doctor on the first film and helped come up with the Animated Credits Opening and much of Ape's dialogue.
  • Un-Canceled: As of August 2013, the 2008 series has been picked up for more episodes.
  • What Could Have Been: Ursula was originally named Jane in the unaired pilot and early scripts, but ABC executives ordered it changed to avoid a lawsuit from the estate of Edgar Rice Burroughs. The staff named Ursula after actress Ursula Andress.
    • Brendan Fraser was supposed to show up in the sequel making fun of the real reason why he wasn't the main character (he wasn't willing to go through the extensive training he did for George in the beginning) - as a bloated fatass who gets distracted off-set by donuts. (The idea was by him, by the by.) It wound up being canned.
