* ActorAllusion: Songwriter Allusion: At a couple of points in Mumfie's Quest, Mumfie whistles, a nod to the musical Theatre/AnyoneCanWhistle, which Larry Grossman also wrote the music for.


* PeripheryHatedom: People who grew up with Here Comes Mumfie and/or the Katharine Tozer books hate this series for being too saccharine and cute.
** Forte Music Entertainment, who distributed the Japanese dub, distributed ''Anime/SailorMoon'' and ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' [=CDs=] when those shows were popular. [=KSS=], who dubbed the show, also did ''Anime/WeddingPeach''. As a result, the dub of Mumfie shares some of the same voice actors from these shows, the most notable example being Rei Hino's seiyuu voicing Electric Eel.


* [[HeAlsoDid She Also Did]]: This show was made by Britt Allcroft, the same person who brought ''WesternAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngine'' to our television screens.


** Like its' sister show WesternAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngine‎, it was also popular in Japan, with the videos of the series constantly appearing in the top 5 anime videos each time a new one came out, and there were plans for Japanese merchandise. Unfortunately, neither the post-"A Treasure Beyond Price" episodes or the merchandise got released in Japan either because of the death of Scarecrow's voice actor, Creator/KeiTomiyama, or the fact that [=ForteMusic=] dissolved into Columbia Music Group before the new episodes were completed. However, some cable providers did offer Fox Family as one of the English language channels. The catch? It was on at midnight, making episodes like "Days Without Night" and "Scarecrowella" seem more hilarious due to their references to that time of the day.

* AdoredByTheNetwork: Creator/{{Fox}} was in love this show.

** One YouTube comment on the episode "Sparks in the Dark" said "A cross-dressing male eel. Nice." Eel is actually a girl. The commenter might have been confused as a result of her [[CrossDressingVoices cross-dressed role]].

* {{Bowdlerise}}: The Norwegian dub mutes out any time Mumfie sneezes, probably because it sounds more like farting than sneezing. There's an odd exception to this: the episode "Lighter Than Air". Also, in a situation unlike the DiC dub of ''Anime/SailorMoon'', they combined the last two episodes of the Mumfie's Quest arc for some scary moments.
