  • Adored by the Network: This seems to be the case given that two episodes are premiered on its launch date, it had special screenings in theaters for Halloween 2017, and it's been given a DVD release only two weeks after it came out.
    • On it's premiere date, it was simulcast on both the Disney Junior block on Disney Channel and the Disney Junior channel! Now that's gotta take the cake.
    • Making it better is that nine more new episodes premiered as the same month as the premiere.
    • The "Boo For You Halloween" music video that Disney Junior releases every October has been replaced with a song called "Its Halloveen", which serves the same function as the previous video of showing off the current shoows' Halloween episodes, but has a noticeable amount of focus on this series.

    • In January 2018, it was renewed for season 2.
    • In September 2018, it was renewed for a third season. Keep in mind that the second season hasn't even started yet when the announcement was made.
    • Halloveen was brought back for 2018, this time with various tie in activities. The dedication is definitely strong here.
    • Halloveen 2019 is where things really took off. There was a new episode every Friday, and more Ghoul Girls Rock music videos.
  • Casting Gag:
    • We have Isabella Crovetti Cramp voicing an adorable young girl who's primarily light blue, and has a pet voiced by Dee Bradley Baker. Why is that familiar?
      • Sticking with Dee Bradley Baker, he also voices Phoebe's mom and dad when they're accidentally turned into squirrels. He's voiced squirrels before .
    • Matilda isn't the first friendly monster that Lara Jill Miller voiced.
      • On top of that, Matilda is a Snuggalot, a monster who likes hugging. You sure she's not related to Lambie?

    • Creepy Caroline, leader of the all-girl band called The Scream Girls, is voiced by Raini Rodriguez. This wouldn't be the first time she's been involved in a musical group.
    • Nika Futterman voices a cuddle monster named Buttons, and that's not the only cute creature that she's voiced. Though, Cuckoo Loca is more sassy.
    • Dr. Piquette, a bespectacled and intelligent Doctor, is voiced by Carlos Alazraqui. He's voiced someone like him before.
    • Miss Fincher, the second substitute in "Scarestitute Teacher", is voiced by Laraine Newman. This wouldn't be the only time she's voiced a teacher who's ... a bit out there.
    • Mitchell Whitfield voicing Demi is this two fold. This is the second time he's voiced a ghost in a Disney Junior show, and he's once again voicing a nerdy, primarily rounded character also for Disney Junior.

  • Cast the Expert: Chris Nee got Jorge Gutierrez to be heavily involved with the Dia De Los Muertos episode, from the writing to the character designs, and even the voice work, due to their past work together on Maya & Miguel .
  • Creator's Oddball: While shows like this are within Chris Nee's usual territory, it's quite different for the musical composers. Layla Minuoi, who usually composes scores for live action shows, scores her first cartoon. The songs are written by Michael Kooman and Christopher Dimond, who usually work in musical theater.
  • Creator-Preferred Adaptation: Anne Marie Pace, who wrote the books, is excited for the series.
  • Dawson Casting: The show averts this for the most part with child characters like Vee, Poppy, Bridget, and so forth being voiced by child actors. There are a few who do fit this category though.
    • Vee starts to grow into this; despite appearing physically 7 years old (but biologically near 200), her voice actor is the 14-year old Isabella Cramp, who was 12 when the show premiered. The same also goes for Viviann Yee as Bridget, who's also 14.
    • Vee's baby cousin, Nosy is voiced by Kari Wahlgren, who turned 40 the year the episode came out.
    • "Two Heads Are Better Than One" has a two headed girl who's close in age to Vee, with the first head named Shreekia and the second one is named Hernadette. The former is voiced by 50 year old Deby Derryberry while the latter is voiced by 34 year old Georgie Kidder.
  • Dueling Shows: With Nickelodeon's Bunsen Is a Beast, another show about a supernatural somebody trying to fit into human society.
    • It's also competing with Bunnicula, another horror themed show based on a children's book. Kristi Reed is even the voice director for both shows.
  • Fake Nationality:
    • Kari Wahlgren, an American, applies a Transylvanian accent for Vee's Aunt Olga.
    • Chef Remy Bones, who's French, is voiced by Ian James Corlette, a Canadian/American Actor.
  • God Does Not Own This World: Due to Chris Nee leaving to work for Netflix, Chelsea Beyl takes over as showrunner in season 3.
  • He Also Did:
  • I Want You to Meet an Old Friend of Mine:
  • Meaningful Release Date: A spooky themed show is perfect for an October release, the month of Halloween.
  • Name's the Same:
  • Out of Order:
    • The episode "Super Natural" aired before "Bone Appetit". The latter episode introduces Chef Remy Bones to the family despite making a cameo in the former where Vee already knows him.
    • "Deliever-eeek" takes place before "This Haunted House Is Closed" due to Cleo the witch being introduced in the former yet is already familiar with the characters in the latter.
  • Playing Against Type:
    • Many of Cree Summer's characters are snarky, sarcastic, or somewhat stern. Here, she plays Edna Peopleson, who is Poppy and Edgar's nice, yet normal mother.
    • Patti LuPone as Vee's Nanpire, considering that arguably her most well-known animated role is about as far from grandmotherly as you can get.
    • In the episode "Oldie But A Ghoulie", Jim Rash, known for playing jerkish characters like Cecil Turtle and Gyro Gearloose, plays the slightly eccentric, but otherwise nice, antique collector.
  • Production Posse: Chris Nee brought over many people who worked with her on Doc McStuffins. This includes many writers, actors, animators, and storyboard artists.
  • Real-Life Relative :Skylar Astin and Anna Camp were married in real life when they voiced Frankenstein and the Bride of Frankenstein.
  • Recursive Adaptation: We have a TV show based on a children's book series getting its own children's books.
  • Relationship Voice Actor: Brian Stokes Mitchell and Patti LuPone both starred in the musical version of Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown. Here, they play Vampirina's grandparents.
  • Talking to Himself:
    • Dee Bradley Baker voices Wolfie, Mr. Gore, and Kiwi the parrot.
    • Kari Wahlgren voices Aunt Olga and Nosy.
    • Carlos Alazraqui voices Dr. Piquette and the floating eyeballs in the magic chest.
  • Time-Shifted Actor: The episode "A Gargoyle Carol" has a scene of a baby Gregoria, with Serenity Brown voicing her in place of Wanda Sykes.
  • Voices in One Room: Played with. Promotional material does show some of the cast and crew together. However, Ian James Corlett, voice of Chef Remy Bones, has houses in both California and Canada, so he could potentially join the actors in one session, and then record separately in another.
  • Write Who You Know:
    • Chris Nee based Mr. Gore on her sixth grade teacher.
    • Her mother was also the inspiration for the mummy character in "Mummy's Day"
