  • Big Name Fan: Alan Moore is a big fan of Drunken Bakers, saying, "I think the Drunken Bakers is like Samuel fucking Beckett or something. It's horrible and really funny.".
  • Name's the Same: Jack Black. Not that one.
  • What Could Have Been: According to Chris Donald in his book Rude Kids - The Unfeasibly True Story of Viz, Student Grant almost got an Animated Adaptation, but this never came to fruition. He went on to say that he was pleased that the project did not go ahead as he felt the quality of the previous releases was disappointing.

  • Write Who You Know: The comic's creator Chris Donald has said that, among others, Brown Bottle is based on one of his friends and Biffa Bacon on an incident he witnessed where a young boy began an unprovoked assault with the approval of his parents shouting and cheering him on. His brother and comic co-founder Simon Donald in turn based Sid the Sexist on a friend who had a lot of bravado around women but was completely clueless when it came to chatting them up, and Mr. Logic on his and Chris's elder brother Steve, who was diagnosed with autism, but nonetheless took his parodying well and subsequently made his own contributions to the comic and its website.
