Trivia: Goof Troop
  • Actor Allusion: The Christmas special has Pistol making two allusions to Bart Simpson. Though the second one — Pistol yelling "Cowabunga!" — is a case of Beam Me Up, Scotty!, since Bart only ever said that once.
  • Colbert Bump: The Goof Troop SNES video game was already a cult classic, but attracted much more attention after it was played through on Game Grumps. In fact, the page for the game was created around the time Game Grumps covered it. Additionally, the show itself has gained a significant following from the Game Grumps videos.
  • Composers: Robert Irving did "Midnight Movie Madness"; Mark Watters (fresh off of his work on Tiny Toon Adventures) did the rest of the episodes.
  • Cross-Dressing Voices: Max Goof, voiced by the late Dana Hill.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!
    • Pete's family is Monterey Jack (or Bonkers, Winnie the Pooh, Psycrow, Taz, and Ed the Hyena), Ms. Finster (Peg does sound like her whenever she gets mad), Bart Simpson (though the voice Nancy Cartwright uses is the one she uses for Mindy on Animaniacs), and PJ, much like Jim Cummings, voices a lot of people (though the voice Rob Paulsen uses for PJ is similar to Carl Wheezer from Jimmy Neutron Boy Genius and the Box Ghost from Danny Phantom).
    • Max (Goofy's son) was voiced by Dana Hill (who was on National Lampoon's Vacation and was the voice of Charles the Duck on Duckman until she died).
    • One of the members of the biker gang in "Queasy Rider" may be recognized as Mandark.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: Was a particularly bad case of this until Disney Movie Club released the first 54 episodes on DVD in 2013. Regardless, there are still 24 episodes (plus the Christmas special) not on home video in any format.
  • Name's the Same: Pistol Pete is also the nickname of the late basketball player Pete Maravich.
  • Star-Making Role: In voice-acting terms, Peg was this for April Winchell, being the first Disney TV lead she played, and played more ever since.
  • Talking to Himself: Rob Paulsen, whenever PJ and Leech interact with each other. Several other cast members, when voicing extras, including Bill Farmer and Jim Cummings.
  • What Could Have Been: The original plan was for Goof Troop and Quack Pack to share the same universe, separate from the Carl Barks inspired universe, with the cast interacting with humans. Disney overruled the creators, forcing them to replace the humans with "dog noses", the nickname animators gave for the extras with noses like the Beagle Boys. They were still able to use humans in Quack Pack.
