- As Himself: Tony James and Vivian Bayubay McLaughlin as Tony and Vivian; the Disney+ Details page even makes it seem like they have the same surnames in the show as they do in real life, even though they rarely use them.
- Keep Circulating the Tapes: Only two VHS tapes were released: Out of the Box: Trick or Treat and Out of the Box: Happy Holidays. The episode Trick or Treat was also rereleased on the Rolie Polie Olie: A Spookie Ookie Halloween DVD. However, the near-complete series is now available on Disney+.
- Missing Episode: Playhouse Disney stopped airing "Let's Eat Out", "The Gift", and "Treasures" at some point, and Disney+ doesn't have them, either. Fans have theorized that this is because the plots were recycled into other episodes. (for instance, "Let's Eat Out" sounds as if the plot is similar to Season 2's "Out To Lunch").
- Vindicated by Reruns: Back when it first premiered on Playhouse Disney, the show was only decently popular compared to the other programming on the block. When it was added to Disney+, its' popularity increased, mainly because of parents sharing the show with their kids because they grew up with it.
