    • The sizzle reel reveals that Fungus Fries was prepped to be in the webseries much earlier, while for the longest time he was just relegated to an Advertised Extra, despite having heavy coverage in the promo artwork and getting one of the long bios the webseries characters get. He eventually made his webseries debut in Series 4, three season after his release. In the webseries, he is given the name "Chips McGraw", rather than his preliminary webseries name of "French Fry Head".
