** The Platypus Bros. have the same lisp as Daffy Duck. (Note: A year later, ''WesternAnimation/BlinkyBill'' would be another cartoon with lisping platypi.)

* FleaEpisode: In "A Flea For Me", when Taz eats out of the garbage can, he picks up a flea, which makes him itch. Taz tries to keep Jean from finding out, as she would give him a bath if she knew, and since Taz hates water, he HatesBaths.

** In "Gone to Pieces", Taz accidentally breaks Jean's vase when he plays tiddlywinks with his bottle cap collection. After spending the entire episode trying to put the vase back together, with each attempt breaking the vase even more, Taz eventually sells his bottle cap collection to raise the money to buy a new vase. [[spoiler:At the end of the episode, it is revealed that [[ShaggyDogStory Jean was planning to sell the vase at her next garage sale for five dollars]]. Taz gets upset and destroys the replacement vase when he realizes that all his efforts were for nothing.]]
