* PopCultureUrbanLegends: When "The Duck Brothers" originally aired, Will Ryan's impersonation of Music/RingoStarr was so flawless, everyone thought it was ''actually him''.[[note]]In an amusing instance of SixDegreesOfKevinBacon, Thea White, the voice of Muriel, is the wife of Andy White, who played drums on "Love Me Do".[[/note]]

** Lionel Wilson was replaced by Arthur Anderson as the voice of Eustace in the middle of the third season after the former retired; despite this, audio of Wilson was still used when Eustace said his more common lines, laughed, or screamed (the difference was very noticeable). In the 2014 special, Anderson was replaced by none other than Creator/WallaceShawn (who [[NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent didn't even try to impersonate Wilson, using his normal voice instead]]; by comparison, Muriel's voice actress, Thea White, was able to flawlessly recreate her original voice). For Cartoon Network's 20th anniversary promo, Eustace is voiced by Creator/TomKenny. And it's been stated that if the show ever gets brought back, Creator/BrianDoyleMurray will helm the role due to Anderson's passing.
