* TroubledProduction: In reviewing the show's Christmas episode, ''Blog/TheIslandOfMisfitChristmasSpecials'' noted that the second season was more rushed than the first. Since stop-motion is notoriously time-consuming, it took one day to finish up ''five seconds'' of footage. They did use shortcuts to get the show done faster, most notably [[AndKnowingIsHalfTheBattle the Karaoke Cafe segments]] which always used footage from other episodes. Danger Productions didn't count on ABC to renew the show for 13 more episodes plus the aforementioned triple-length Christmas episode... in a shorter amount of time. So they reused all of the previous season's Karaoke Cafe segments, and in some cases they reused entire shorts followed by "sequels" to said shorts. They had to put extra effort into the Christmas episode, which was a whopping 90 minutes long with commercials. Despite all this, the show still looks technically flawless over two decades after it was made.

* HeyItsThatVoice: As mentioned above, besides RobPaulsen and Creator/JimCummings being recognizable, the voice of Molly Coddle was Gail Matthius. She was on ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'''s first season to be universally considered SeasonalRot for the show [[note]](the 1980-1981 season, where NBC hired Jean Doumanian to create a new, 1980s "Not Ready for Primetime" cast, only for the experiment to fail as Jean Doumanian had to deal with a cut budget, the fact that she didn't know anything about running a comedy show, and ABC's sketch show ''Fridays'' becoming more popular)[[/note]]. Since then, Matthius appeared on two more sketch shows: ''Assaulted Nuts'' and ''Laugh Trax'', made minor appearances on live-action TV shows and movies (''Airplane II: The Sequel'' and ''Simon and Simon''), and, most famously, did voicework on a lot of animated shows from the late 1980s into the 1990s. This, along with ''BobbysWorld'' and ''TinyToonAdventures'' are her most popular roles in animation.
** GilbertGottfried (who, like Gail Matthius, was a cast member during ''SNL'''s sixth season and has since done stand-up comedy and voice work in animation) is Odiferous J. Stench from the episode "Love Stinks".
** April Winchell is Mr. Bumpy's Auntie Matta from the episode of the same name and the princess doll from "Beauty and the Bump".
** Juaquin Gusanito Sin Manos the earthworm from "Twas the Night Before Bumpy" is played by none other than [[Creator/CheechAndChong Cheech Marin]].
** The alien duo Sleemoth and Gloog were voiced by Creator/JeffBennett.
** Little Robot from "Made in Japan" was voiced by Creator/JaniceKawaye.
