  • He Also Did: Craig Bartlett is also the creator of Hey Arnold! and Ready Jet Go!.
  • The Merch: It exists, but a lot of it is poorly reviewed and said to be shoddily made.
  • Only So Many Canadian Actors: One of the only two Jim Henson-related works to fall under this trope, the other being Unstable Fables, as most of the voice cast is Canadian.
  • The Other Darrin: Buddy has had three voice actors (Phillip Corlett for seasons 1 and 2, Sean Thomas in season 3, and Dayton Wall in season 4).
    • In Season 3, Joey Silva replaces Alexander Matthew Marr as Don.

  • Relationship Voice Actor: Mr. Conductor and Tiny Pteranodon are voiced by the father daughter duo of Ian James Corlett and Claire Corlett. Buddy's first voice actor was her brother Phillip.
  • Science Marches On: The show does its best to stay on top of current discoveries, but sometimes it finds itself the victim of this.
    • For starters, Eoraptor might not be a theropod, but a sauropod ancestor.
    • Stygimoloch may not represent a distinct creature after all, but the subadult form of Pachycephalosaurus. Whether or not it is different, young pachycephalosaurs probably had flat (if somewhat knobbly) heads, growing domes as they aged.
    • Brachiosaurus never lived in Africa. That was Giraffatitan.
    • Recent studies show ceratopsians might have had quills on their backs.
    • The character design of Sunny Sauroposeidon is clearly based on brachiosaurids – a group that the taxon probably doesn't belong to after all, instead being more related to titanosaurs. Granted, the largest macronarians would have had a brachiosaur-like appearance.

    • Adult ornithomimosaurs are now known to likely have had wings of some sort.
    • The limb proportions of Spinosaurus were probably far more unusual than depicted in the show.
    • The discovery that Dimetrodon may have been nocturnal casts doubt on the idea that its sail was primarily used for thermoregulation.
    • The giant Shonisaurus material has been reassigned to Shastasaurus.
  • She's a Man in Japan: Tiny is a boy in the Czech dub.
  • Talking to Himself: This happens in "Spooky Tree", where Shiny and Annie interact. Shiny and Annie have the same voice actress, Erika-Shaye Gair.
  • Un-Canceled: The show initially got cancelled after the season 4 finale movie, What's At the Center of the Earth?. Craig Bartlett revealed in a Reddit AMA, that PBS revived the show for 11 more episodes, bringing the total episode count to 100. This was officially announced on October 2, 2018.

How well does it match the trope?
