  • Banned Episode: The episode "The Butt Of The Jake" was banned in 2007 as it was deemed too vulgar and "butt-filled" for younger audiences.
  • Banned in China: The episode "Amazon Kevin", which features a Crocodile Hunter Captain Ersatz, was never aired in Australia again in the wake of Steve Irwin's unfortunate demise. Watch the episode for yourself, and you'll know why.
  • Cross-Dressing Voices:
    • Nika Futterman as Adam. Both Spanish dubs (Mexico and Spain) avert this; Abraham Vega (Mexico) and Miguel Rius (Spain) are male.

    • In-episode example: When everyone at CDMS are forced to wear school uniforms, everyone, except Dickie (who is British of course), Adam and Principal Pixiefrog, started speaking in obviously fake British accents.

The entire series is available on iTunes however, and the first season is available on Netflix.
  • Talking to Himself: Another Cartoon Network series that tries to save their budget.
