Trivia: Putt-Putt
  • Adored by the Network: PUTT. PUTT. SAVES. THE. ZOO. As if it wasn't enough for being marketed up the wazoo when it first came out, Atari seemed like they just couldn't let go of it, not in re-releases nor digital distribution. Nimbus only heightened its adoration; on top of the fact that it was the first one they released, it clearly is their favorite, having more publicity than the others as well as having an interactive book based on it written by them.
  • Blooper:
    • Putt-Putt's eyebrows are strangely missing on the box art for Putt-Putt Saves the Zoo. This was corrected for the 1999 version.
    • Pep's Birthday Surprise has several.
  • Cross-Dressing Voices: The latter two of Putt-Putt's three voices, Nancy Cartwright and Michelle Thorson.
  • Franchise Killer: Pep's Birthday Surprise.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: In Enters the Race, Joins the Circus, and One-Stop Fun Shop, Putt-Putt is voiced by Nancy Cartwright, known for her work as Bart Simpson.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: The first two games seem to be falling into this. Somewhat understandable given the way they look now compared to the later games, but they have not seen a re-release since their DOS to Windows ports in 1995.
    • Some of the games are available on Steam with more coming later.
  • No Export for You: Putt-Putt Joins the Parade and Putt-Putt Goes to the Moon had very few translations.
  • The Other Darrin: Clarence and Gert sound different in Goes to the Moon than they do in Joins the Parade.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • Pep's Birthday Surprise had quite a few things that didn't make the final cut:
      • An Apple Orchard mini-game, which would have been accessible from Torvil Tractor's farm and allowed Putt-Putt to continue bringing apples to Mr. Baldininote 
      • Marvin the Marvelous's Confirmation card being separate from the Party Bagnote 
      • A Decorations area and/or mini-game, which would have been accessible from the interior of the Party Storenote 
      • Another clickpoint animation for the left light at the Fire Station, removed because Leah (Verre?) didn't like itnote 
      • The Party Box being separate from the Party Bagnote 
    • The Anime of the Game was to have been created by Lancit Media Entertainment.
  • Working Title:
    • Putt-Putt Travels Through Time's working title was Putt-Putt's Adventure Through Time.
    • Putt-Putt: Pep's Birthday Surprise's working title was Putt VII.
