  • The Danza: The Librarian is revealed to be named Kaisa, which is also the name of her voice actress, Kaisa Hammarlund.
  • Dark Horse Casting: Unlike Bella Ramsey and Ameerah Falzon-Ojo, Oliver Nelson is a newcomer actor with David was being his first role in a TV series.
  • Dawson Casting: At the time the show was first released, Bella Ramsey was 15 years old. Ironically, Hilda is 11 years old meaning that she is four years younger than her voice actress.
  • Fandom Life Cycle: Currently at Stage 2, and is likely to develop further given that the cartoon continues.
  • Fan Nickname: The Fandom wiki (and this wiki as well) distinguish the Nisse who lives in Hilda's home and the Nisse who is Jellybean's owner by referring to them as "Tontu Alpha" and "Tontu Beta", respectively.

  • He Also Did: This show is basically a CBBC crossover. Bella Ramsey (Mildred Hubble) from The Worst Witch stars alongside Ameerah Falzon-Ojo (Jas Salford) from So Awkward. In addition, both keep in touch on Instagram, despite not meeting each other in person.
  • The Merch: GUND has made plushies out of Hilda, Twig, and the Woff, but they're pretty pricey.
  • Non-Singing Voice: For "Chapter 8", David's singing voice is provided by Ilan Galkoff instead of David's voice actor Oliver Nelson. It was averted in Season 2, with the song "Don't Let Your Love Fly Away" performed by Oliver Nelson.
  • Recycled: The Series: Online marketing for the Netflix show calls the show Hilda: the Series. On Netflix itself, its simply called Hilda.
  • Self-Adaptation: Luke Pearson who wrote the comics, also wrote for the animated series.

  • Series Hiatus: The first season was released in September 2018, and the second season premiered in December 2020, totaling to a hiatus of two years.
  • Sleeper Hit: The Netflix series is definitely this. Although the comics were acclaimed, they were somewhat obscure. Excellent word of mouth surrounding the show prompted many viewers to check it out, resulting in it becoming such an unexpected hit, both critically and commercially, that Silvergate Media is now planning a licensing program for it in response, with Netflix announcing a second season within weeks and an extra-length special set to release later on in 2021.
  • What Could Have Been: A deleted scene from the first episode of the second season would have featured the Great Raven and provided a reason for why he didn't appear in the rest of the season (he left town, promising to be back for next year's festival). However, the scene ended up being cut for time.
  • The Wiki Rule: The Hilda-wiki


  • Luke Pearson used to work on comics and storyboard for a few episodes in Adventure Time.
  • While recording for the season 2 episode, "The Deerfox", Hilda's voice actress, Bella Ramsey, was actually crying while recording her lines during the scene where Hilda had to let Twig go.
  • The typeface for the opening credits, as well as the credits for the episode in the title card, is a hand regular font. The typeface for the closing credits at the end is Helvetica Neue LT Pro 47 Light Condensed.
