Trivia: The Mighty Boosh
  • The Danza: Diane, the female Shaman, is played by Diane Fielding. Also, Kirk, another Shaman, is played by Kirk Gaitskell-Kendrick.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Todd Rivers/Dr. Lucien Sanchez as Dixon Bainbridge, and Dean Lerner/Thornton Reed as Saboo. You have to be a BBC fan or an [adult swim] fan to notice and/or care. The same two are also in The IT Crowd as Douglas Reynholm and Maurice Moss respectively, if that helps any.
    • Dixon Bainbridge (i.e. Matt Berry) is also the voice of the volcano on the Volvic Revive advert.
    • The Head Shaman's wife, Methuselah the extreme sports calendar model, is Jill Tyrrell of Nighty Night on the BBC.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Old Gregg.
  • Real-Life Relative: Noel Fielding (Vince) and Michael Fielding (Naboo) are brothers, and the cast often uses family and friends as extras.
  • Those Two Actors: Noel and Julian.
  • What Could Have Been: Noel Fielding and Julian Barratt once revealed they wanted Vince and Howard to get together during the tv show, but they changed their mind for fear of hitting the Relationship Ceiling. Possibly related to this is an unproduced script they talked about, which was an episode where Vince and Howard would take a potion that would lower their inhibitions to the point they have sex and wake up in bed together.
    • On the Doctor Who special of Never Mind the Buzzcocks, Noel offered Bernard Cribbins a writing spot for the show after being impressed with Cribbins' awesome dry sense of humor. This has sadly not panned out.
