Golden Boy the Manga and Anime:
- Keep Circulating the Tapes: The anime was licensed and dubbed by ADV Films. When ADV Films went under, the show was rescued by Media Blasters. After Media Blasters lost the rights to it, Discotek Media now currently holds the rights and have released it on DVD.
Golden Boy the TV series:
- Fake American: Walter is played by Theo James, a native of Oxford, England.
- Friday Night Death Slot: Averted. It was originally set to be put here after its first two episodes aired on Tuesdays at 10, but having better ratings than Vegas (the timeslot's previous occupant), CBS decided at the last minute to switch the two shows' places on the schedule. Ironically, neither series was renewed.
