  • Edited for Syndication: Thanks to Nick no longer having the rights to the cartoons aired as part of the show during the original run (which included UPA and Famous Studios shorts, as well as segments from The Alvin Show and Batfink), the recent reruns have replaced them with Rugrats episodes and some of the show's fake commercials.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: Of the 62 episodes produced, 30 are missing, and of the three special episodes produced, the Election Special is the only missing one, as the Chanukah and New Year's specials have resurfaced and been archived. The show hadn't been re-aired on TV since June 1997 before four season 2 episodes were aired as part of The '90s Are All That on TeenNick. The episodes that are available on YouTube aren't in the greatest quality either, be it fuzzy video or off-sync/missing audio.

  • No Budget: Some of the segments, props, and puppet stages on the show suggest this. There's even an episode where the show's budget gets even worse, the lights go out, puppets start working the cameras, and Captain Bob does the writing.
  • Screwed by the Network: Weinerville's popularity allowed it to expand new airings from Sunday afternoons to weekdays. Despite this, the series was not renewed for a third season. Marc Weiner explained that Nickelodeon wanted its schedule to include more action-oriented programming and Weinerville, with its puppet atmosphere, was deemed too childish for the new direction.
  • What Could Have Been: Marc Weiner said in interviews that if the show was given a third season, the cartoon shorts would have been omitted completely and instead focus on more character-driven stories
