Trivia / The Replacements

The Animated Series

  • Cross-Dressing Voices: Todd is voiced by Nancy Cartwright.
  • Executive Meddling: Originally, Todd and Riley only got their parents replaced, then an executive suggested that they should have the ability to replace other adults too.
  • Fake Brit: Agent K is voiced by Kath Soucie, not Moira "Brit" Quirk. Remember that.
  • Screwed by the Network: The show went from Saturday nights, to Monday afternoons.
  • What Could Have Been: Before being pitched to Disney as a TV series, creator Dan Santat was going to make a children's book about a kid fed up with his parents' rules that comes across the same ad and replaces his parents with a Mexican wrestler and a cowgirl; only to return them after realizing why his original parents had those rules in the first place.
  • The Other Darrin: Celebrity Starr was voiced by Miley Cyrus in The Frog Prince and by Jessica Di Cicco in Hollywoodn't.


The Band

  • Creator Backlash: Shockingly, Westerberg considers "Unsatisfied" to be one of these, claiming that it was "just the drugs wearing off". Many Replacements fans cite the song as the greatest ever committed to record.
  • Fan Nickname: The Mats. Allegedly, a drunken Paul Westerberg misread his band's name and demanded to know who the "Mats" were.
  • Name's the Same: "Red Red Wine" is not the same as the UB 40 song.
