YMMV / Webster

  • Bizarro Episode: The series finale is a clip show that's also a crossover with Star Trek: The Next Generation. A lightning strike causes Webster to somehow travel to the Enterprise, where he talks to Worf about the fun things people do in the 20th century.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: The name "George Papadopoulos" made the news in 2017 as a member of Donald Trump's presidential campaign who was involved in collusion with the Russian government during the 2016 election. Naturally, some made hay of this by sending memes denoting the similarity in the names. (The names of the two George's are spelt differently: the Trump adviser's last name is spelled "Papadopoulos," while Alex Karras' character is spelled "Papadopolis".)
  • Retroactive Recognition:
    • Long before she was cast as Cassie Parker, Cathryn Damon previously played Mary Campbell on Soap. In addition, Eugene Roche, who played Bill Parker, had a recurring role on Soap as lawyer E. Ronald Mallu. Coincidentally, Stu Silver previously worked on Soap as a writer and producer.
    • April Kelly wrote eight episodes. Kelly is now best known for co-creating Boy Meets World and its spinoff, Girl Meets World.
    • Dave Hackel wrote six episodes. Hackel is best known as creator and executive producer of Becker.
    • Susan Stevenson, co-creator and co-executive producer of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, wrote one episode.
    • A pre-Blossom Mayim Bialik appeared in several episodes of the last season as Frida, an intellectual friend of Webster's. (Funnily enough, the character resembles a younger Amy).
