* TheOtherDarrin: An amusing subversion: it eventually turns out that the Mr. Radford who started the series was a compulsive impersonator named Fred Suggs, who had the real Radford (played by [[Series/TheAddamsFamily John Astin]]) tied up in the basement all along. Radford doesn't press charges because the guy was such a good salesman, and he later turns up as a teller for the Bank of Eerie. Only Marshall notices. [[FridgeHorror Does that mean some poor bank teller is tied up in a basement somewhere?]]

* OutOfOrder: "Broken Record" was aired as the last episode, but was clearly written and filmed earlier in the season... thus Dash-X is completely absent even though Jason Marsden was still listed in the opening credits. Streaming versions of the show place "Broken Record" as the eighth episode, and accordingly revert to a version of the credits from before Marsden was part of the regular cast.
