  • Adored by the Network: Cartoon Network gave this show three, count 'em, three sneak previews and those previews were reran quite often before the premiere (except for the first one which rarely aired because it was a Halloween special). After it premiered, it was usually their second or third most aired show (behind network darlings The Amazing World of Gumball and Teen Titans Go!). However...
  • All-Star Cast: The principle voice cast is composed of Tara Strong, Grey DeLisle, Kate Micucci, Eric Bauza, and Roger Craig Smith. Now that's star power.

  • The Cast Show Off: "Lab Cat" has Dr. Fox singing a song about science, playing off of Kate Micucci's singing talents.
  • Banned Episode: Although "Sick Day" aired in Canada on September 13, 2020, but is likely not going to in the U.S. anytime soon due to the current COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Cowboy BeBop at His Computer:
    • A wiki vandal edited the press release description of the show to include Flain as a character of the cast, which many LEGO news sources picked up as the actual one.
    • A more minor point, but some of the commercials say that the creators of Teen Titans Go! and The LEGO Movie worked on this series. Regarding the former, only TTG co-creator Aaron Horvath is working on this series, not Michael Jelenic. Even then, this show is developed by Ed Skudder and Lynn Wang, who simply wrote for TTG.
    • Some bios erroneously refer to Master Frown as the leader of Frowntown, with Brock as a loyal minion eager to help him spread chaos. In the series proper, Master Frown is on the lowest rung of his team, while Brock is apathetic to his deeds.
  • Cross-Dressing Voices:

    • Grey DeLisle voices Puppycorn.
    • Thanks to the variety of citizens, this is inevitable at times. This includes H. Michael Croner as Bim-Bom (the garbage bag girl) and Tara Strong as Slobodan (the cylinder boy).
  • Development Gag:
    • Master Fear's teardrop-shaped head comes from a scrapped design for Master Frown, only with the addition of "quivering" eyes, compared to the lines for eyes that the original design had.
    • The bunny used to represent Riki Lindhome in the music video for "Everything Is Awesome (Tween Dream Remix)" (sung by Garfunkel and Oates, with Dr. Fox taking the place of her voice actress Kate Micucci) uses a scrapped design for Dr. Fox, who had a bunny used as a possible animal design for her in concept art, before a fox was settled on.
  • Marathon Running: The show got a marathon on December 24-25 of 2019, to promote new episodes of the show.
  • Meaningful Release Date: The episode "Birthday Blowout", an episode that celebrates Puppycorn's birthday, was released on February 16th, 2018, the start of the Chinese New Year for the Year of the Dog.

    • In addition, it was the same week as Tara Strong's actual birthday. (February 12)
  • The Other Darrin:
    • Tara Strong replaces Alison Brie as Unikitty.
    • The same happens in the Japanese dub, as Maaya Uchida replaces Miyuki Sawashiro for the same character.
    • Ditto in the Latin American Spanish dub, as Carla Castañeda replaces Jessica Ángeles from the films.
    • Production wise, Wes Gleason replaces Sam Riegel as the voice director starting in summer 2018.
  • Out of Holiday Episode: "Scary Tales 2", a Halloween episode, premiered on Christmas Eve 2019 during a marathon.
  • Relationship Voice Actor:
  • Role Reprise: In the episode "BatKitty", Will Arnett voices both Batman and Unikitty's Batman persona, returning from voicing him in The LEGO Movie.
  • Screwed by the Network: Was the opposite at first, but it would soon fall into this. In March 2019, the show would fall under hiatus and was pulled from the lineup completely. There were rumors that the show had been cancelled, which was only worsened when Tara Strong said it was. But around November 2019, it was revealed that a 3rd and final season was planned.
    • The show returned in December for a burn off marathon before gaining a Sunday afternoon slot. At first, it was just reruns but then premieres were moved over there too at 4:30. This is almost never a good sign for a show on the network; something that several of their shows like The Powerpuff Girls (2016) and OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes, among others, can attest. During this period, both reruns and advertising were non-existent. A few months later, the show was again pulled from the lineup. On August 17, 2020, the remaining episodes were burned off at 8:00 a.m. with heavy advertising.
    • It's worth noting that there was an additional reason for the show being dropped. The mediocre performance of The LEGO Movie 2, and Warner Bros.'s subsequent relinquishing of the rights to the LEGO films, meant that Unikitty! became cut off from its own franchise. With the movie series (at least in its current incarnation) over, there was no point in keeping the show around, so it was phased out.
  • Short Run in Peru:
    • The episode "Scary Tales" aired in the United Kingdom before the United States got it.
    • Also, due to the European feeds having the same episode order as the UK, this episode also aired early in countries like Germany, Spain, Portugal and Italy.
    • Every episode after "Float On" was aired early in Australia. "Prank Wars" also premiered early in France.
  • Talking to Himself:
    • Roger Craig Smith voices both Richard and Hawkodile. He also voiced the Score Creeper in "Spoooooky Game", who Hawkodile interacted with.
    • Eric Bauza voices both Master Frown and Master Fear, the latter specifically taunting the former in the episode "Stuck Together".
  • Trailers Always Spoil: This show was teased by the Russian version of Cartoon Network before it was even announced.
  • Voices in One Room: This seems to be the case according to this tweet .
  • What Could Have Been:
  • The Wiki Rule: Unikitty! Wiki.
