Go To

  • Beam Me Up, Scotty!: Contrary to what the theme music would suggest, Corey does not steal words from Trina's diary.
  • The Cast Showoff: Lyon Smith, who provides the voice for Corey, does all his own singing.
  • Flip-Flop of God: The series constantly flip-flops on whether The Newmans' male version of Laney is called Larry or Lenny. Word of God would later confirm that his name was originally Larry (hence why he's referred to as such during the series' run), but it was retconned to Lenny later as to better fit the idea of him being a gender-flipped Laney.

  • Missing Episode: "No Strings Attached", albeit in certain states mainly due to it's dialogue being edgy.
  • No Export for You:
    • Up until 2015, the remaining episodes of season 1 could only be seen on television in France, Italy, Australia, Latin America, Poland, and the UK. This was later subverted however, as Boomerang aired all the remaining 13 episodes of season 1 in the late Winter and early Spring of 2015.
    • The DVDs for Season 1 can only be brought from Mexico, almost all of South America, and Australia.
  • Official Fan-Submitted Content: The contest winning "Wicked Cool Transitions" from the website.
  • The Other Darrin: In the Polish dub, Mina Beff was initially voiced by Krystyna Kozanecka. After her abrupt passing on November 20, 2013, Joanna Pach resumed Kozanecka's role for the rest of the series.
  • Out of Order:
    • In America, almost every episode is completely out of order. For instance: "Smash Up Terby" is the pilot, yet it's aired in episode 15 in the US and "Creepaway Camp", episode 3, is aired at the 13th episode.

    • In Canada, the shows are aired in a different order from those in America. "Smash Up Terby" is still not the first, though.
  • Relationship Voice Actor:
  • Screwed by the Network: When the series first aired in the United States on Cartoon Network in June 2013, they would air a new half-hour episode (later changed to just one 15-minute segment, with the remaining half being a re-run of one of the previously-aired 15-minute segments) every weekday for an entire month. After the first 13 half-hour episodes were shown on Cartoon Network, the series was then completely pulled from the network's schedule. It was supposed to return to CN the following Spring, and it did, but NOT on the actual channel. Instead, the remaining 13 episodes of season 1 were released on Cartoon Network's mobile app on March 31, 2014. They eventually aired on television in the United States nearly a year later...on Cartoon Network's sister station, Boomerang. Boomerang continued airing re-runs of the series until that July, when it left American TV airwaves altogether. And it wasn't until THAT happened when the series was officially announced to have been cancelled.

  • Talking to Himself: The members of the Newmans are voiced by their Grojband counterparts, which also leads to Crossdressing Voices.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • Corey's voice actor would've been the same person who voiced Nick Mallory, and his original name was Tre Trippin.
    • Despite being musically multi-talented, Laney was originally the band's drummer. Which counts as double, as that would have immediately made her an Expy of Kim Pines.
    • The show was originally intended to have a one-minute long theme song that explained the plot better, but got cut down to 20 seconds due to Cartoon Network's standards. A leica reel of it can be found here on one of the creator's Youtube channels.
    • The pilot of the show (which later became the basis for the episode Smash Up Terby) shows off several elements not present in the main show. A few of these include:
      • The fact that the show was supposed to have full 22 minute long episodes; these got cut down to two 11-minute episodes per half hour. Because of this, the version of the song "Tire Tracks" is longer than the version aired in the actual show.
      • The implicit presence of Corey and Trina's father, who has not appeared in the show at all to date; speaking of family, their last name is stated as being "Triffin" instead of "Riffin" at one point.
      • Mina has a different voice actor than in the main show.
      • The plot point of getting Trina's diary back to her, which is Hand Waved in the actual series.
  • The Wiki Rule: Grojband Wiki.
  • Word of God: Corey and Trina are raised by a single father and there never was a mother; he adopted them on his own.
  • Working Title:
    • The original title for "Soulin' Down the Road" was "Christrina", a reference to Christine.
    • The original title for "Curse of the Metrognome" was just "Metrognome".
    • The original title for "Girl Fest" was "Girl, You'll Be a Festival Soon".
    • The original title for "A-Capella-Lips Now" was "Unplugged".
