Trivia / The Replacements

The Animated Series

  • Casting Gag:
    • The subplot of "Buzzwork Orange" had Dick and K switch bodies. However, while they kept their voices, their accents were swapped. This results in K speaking in an southern American accent, much like Kath Soucie's own Betty De Ville on Western Animation/Rugrats .
  • Cross-Dressing Voices:
  • 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.
  • The Other Darrin:
    • Celebrity Starr was voiced by Miley Cyrus in "The Frog Prince" and by Jessica Di Cicco in "Hollywoodn't".
    • Abbie was voiced by Erica Hubbard in season 1 and Tempsett Blesdoe in season 2.
  • Production Posse: The show is pretty much a The Fairly OddParents! reunion. Story editor Jack Thomas is the executive producer for this series, while actors Grey De Lisle and Daran Norris voice series regulars Riley and Dick Daring. Tara Strong, Rob Paulsen, and Dee Bradley Baker do recurring voice work in this series.
  • Screwed by the Network: The show went from Saturday nights, to Monday afternoons.
  • Talking to Himself:
    • Grey De Lisle as Riley and Buzz.
    • Candi Milo as Jacobo and Amanda
    • Dee Bradley Baker as Johnny and Prince Cinnamon Boots
    • Tara Strong as Sierra and Sky Blossom.
    • Jeff Bennett as Conrad Fleem, Sheldon, and the school principal
  • 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 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 Neil Diamond song (as Covered Up by UB40).
