Trivia / Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness

  • Ascended Fanon:
    • According to Po, Tigress did have a crush on Shifu growing up.
    • According to Shifu, there is another level of kung fu mastery beyond the Dragon Warrior: the Celestial Phoenix. Subverted when it turns out the Impossible Task necessary to achieve this role is all a Secret Test of Character. Whether it's a real role a kung fu master can assume after achieving the task for real is never revealed.
  • The Other Darrin: Inevitable since this is a TV series.
    • Ironically, James Sie, who provides the voice of Monkey (taking Jackie Chan's place) voiced Chan himself in Jackie Chan Adventures.

    • Actually averted with Viper and Mr Ping, still voiced by Lucy Liu and James Hong.
  • Playing Against Type: In a meta sort of way—in the Chinese zodiac, the pig is one of the humblest and kindest of animals, yet that is the species chosen for Royal Brat Mei Li. Of course by the end of the episode she gets better and ends up playing true to type after all.
  • Screwed by the Network: This series along with The Penguins of Madagascar and Monsters vs. Aliens were canceled after Nickelodeon executives decided to put more resources on original programming instead of licensed material. Since DreamWorks Animation co-produced and owned the show's elements, Nickelodeon felt it was a strain in financial resources. The remaining episodes that didn't air on Nickelodeon were slowly doled out to Nicktoons, then with NBCUniversal acquiring DreamWorks, Nicktoons did a quick run of the last five episodes every Wednesday in June 2016 before it left television for good. Since then, Dreamworks have taken their properties to Streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu, which has benifited them better (No having to deal with timeslots after all and much quicker production rates).
