  • Recycled: The Series: The TV show is based on, and a continuation of, the 1992 movie (which is sometimes mistaken for The Movie, as the series is far more well-known, but the movie came first).
  • Outlived Its Creator: Dorothy Wall was already gone for 50 years when Yoram Gross unveiled his take of the franchise. Likewise, while Yoram Gross himself passed on in September 2015, he had already sold the media rights to French media corp Studio Canal before his death, who created the 2015 reboot CGI film, and have a TV Series Spin-Off of said CGI film in the pipeline due for 2016.
  • Talking to Himself: The first two seasons of the Yoram Gross series only has TWO voice actors (one male (Keith Scott), one female (Robyn Moore)).
    • The third season added more voice actors (notably Drew Forsythe and Sarah Aubrey) for the new characters debuting at this time.
