Trivia / Kickin' It

Go To

  • Adored by the Network: While it isn't shown around the clock everyday, it does get lots of promotion and countless marathons on Disney XD and sometimes Disney Channel. While other shows receive this treatment, it does get more marathons than most other Disney XD shows. For instance, there was a marathon for Kickin' It and Lab Rats on Disney Channel the night before the Season 3 Premiere as well as a Kickin' It marathon on XD on the day of the premiere. And there was probably one during the week prior to the premiere.
    • Along with Lab Rats, it now has weekly airings on Disney Channel.
  • The Cast Showoff: Leo Howard is an actual black belt in karate and takes this Up to Eleven, as he does all his own stunts.
    • Mateo Arias is also a very talented dancer.
    • Olivia Holt and Kelli Berglund showcase their singing talent in The New Girl.
      • Interestingly, this is the first time Kelli Berglund sings onscreen even if her more famous role on Lab Rats it taken into account.
  • Cast the Expert: Leo Howard was a performing martial artist by the age of 9 and has a black belt in real life.
  • Casting Gag: This isn't the first time Jason Earles plays a Manchild Jerk with a Heart of Gold.
    • Moises Arias was once Jason Earles' boss. Now, Jason Earles's is Mateo Arias's boss...err, Sensei.
    • This also isn't the first time Loni Love plays a sassy lunch lady.
    • Then there's Reed Alexander, who plays a character who seeks to humiliate and torture the main characters. Sounds a lot like Nevel, doesn't it?
  • Creator's Favorite Episode: Olivia Holt has cited "The Karate Games" as her favorite episode.
  • Meaningful Release Date: "Wedding Crashers" premiered on October 8, 2012, the night of the series premiere of Crash & Bernstein. To tie into the show's premiere, both Kickin' It and Lab Rats ("Air Leo") had Crash and Bernstein star Oana Gregory (Amanda) make guest appearances that night.
  • Name's the Same: If you're a Grand Theft Auto fan, you'll recognise Jerry Martinez's name as the Big Bad in Vice City Stories.
