Dawson Casting: (The Potato Head Kids) Surprisingly averted. Most of the kids are actually kids.
He Also Did: Comic book author Gerry Conway, the man who created the Punisher, worked on this show. Yes. Really.
Michael Reaves, too. He wrote several episodes of the show and would later become known as a producer and story editor and writer on such series as Batman: The Animated Series and Gargoyles. Yes. Really.
Hey, It's That Sound!: People who watched all four segments have probably caught onto the fact that the show just reused it's music score for all four of them. Only the songs were different for each segment.
For Glo Friends, Moondreamers, and Potato Head Kids segments, anyway. The My Little Pony segments have gotten official DVD releases from Rhino and Shout! Factory, the latter of which can still be bought to this day.
Not only that, but this trope has been in effect since before the 80s ended. Not only have the other segments not received their DVD releases, but only the Pony segments got reaired in the Second-run syndication of the show on the Disney Channelnote And this was in rotation with My Little Pony Tales; both shows used the "...Tales" opening. It must pay to get top billing...
Missing Song: "The Glass Princess" originally contained the song "Hurry", which has not been re-released or repeated since 1986. Even within fan circles, only an audio copy and lyrics are known to exist. So unless it was simply cut for time, what on earth warranted its censorship?
Recycled Script: You'd be amazed how often "[X] Land is in danger because villain(ess) [Y] did [Z] to the aforementioned villain. Now [Insert Characters of Appropriate Segment Here] must stop the villain before [Segment Setting] enters the apocalypse" cropped up.
Talking To Herself: At times it's a one-woman show for Jeannie Elias, Katie Leigh, Jennifer Darling, or Nancy Cartwright. As far as the latter is concerned, it's a little disconcerting hearing an earlier version of Bart Simpson's voice coming out of a unicorn.note For viewers who are only familiar with her work in The Simpsons, anyway.
