  • Banned Episode: The Jimmy Savile scandal has rendered "Favourite Songs" — an episode featuring a parody of Top of the Pops — banned. Bizarrely, it missed the initial cull on Savile-related material — see Too Soon below.
  • Cross-Dressing Voices: Milo is voiced by a female in the US dub. Averted in the UK dub where he is voiced by a male.
  • Dueling Dubs: There's both a UK and a US dub, though the latter has largely been lost.

  • Dueling Shows: With Wimzie's House on Nick Jr. in the United Kingdom, which premiered in the country the same year as this show and also followed the adventures of four preschool-aged kids at a home daycare.
  • I Want You to Meet an Old Friend of Mine: The American version of the show was an adaptation of a BBC show produced by Rick Sigglekow that had Alyson Court voicing one of the characters. The Noddy Shop, the American adaptation of Noddy's Toyland Adventures, also shared these traits.
  • The Other Darrin: Bella was voiced by Sally Preisig in the first two series. Emma Weaver voiced Bella for the remainder of the series after Preisig took maternity leave.
  • Talking to Himself: Bob Golding voices both Milo and Max, while Justin Fletcher voices Doodles the dog as well as Jake.
  • Too Soon: The BBC were forced to apologise after a January 2013 rerun of a 2001 episode that featured a spoof of Top of the Pops and Max dressed as its most famous host, Jimmy Savile... as the rerun came just days after the official police report on Savile's crimes (he was a real life Depraved Kids' Show Host who allegedly used his fame and reputation to molest hundreds of underage girls and boys).

  • You Look Familiar: Max and Judy, the two adults in the series, are both played by Simon Grover, hence you rarely see both characters in the same scene.
