Trivia / The Mighty Boosh

Go To

  • The Danza: Diane, the female Shaman, is played by Diane Fielding. Also, Kirk, another Shaman, is played by Kirk Gaitskell-Kendrick. Also also, Simon Farnaby as Simon McFarnaby.
  • Executive Meddling: A rare positive example. The BBC loved the show to the point where each successive season had less of a budget than the one before in order to maintain the DIY vibe of the show.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Old Gregg.
    • Bruno Mindhorn from the radio version of 'Jungle'. "I know a lady, she has no eyes, I call her Mrs. China..."

  • Out of Order: When aired on [adult swim], the network for some reason started on the third season of the show and aired the first two seasons afterward.
  • Real-Life Relative: Noel Fielding (Vince) and Michael Fielding (Naboo) are brothers, and the cast often uses family and friends as extras.
  • Those Two Actors: Noel and Julian.
  • What Could Have Been: Noel Fielding and Julian Barratt once revealed they wanted Vince and Howard to get together during the tv show, but they changed their mind for fear of hitting the Relationship Ceiling. Possibly related to this is an unproduced script they talked about, which was an episode where Vince and Howard would take a potion that would lower their inhibitions to the point they have sex and wake up in bed together.
    • On the Doctor Who special of Nevermind The Buzzcocks, Noel offered Bernard Cribbins a writing spot for the show after being impressed with Cribbins' awesome dry sense of humor. This has sadly not panned out.

How well does it match the trope?
