  • Digital Destruction: On the "Disney Safety Hits, Vol. 2" DVD, the "Too Smart for Strangers" special has an uneven audio mix with the vocal track slightly decreased. This is especially evident in the song numbers, which make it hard for viewers to understand what the characters are saying.
  • He Also Did:
    • Ken Forsse, who designed the puppet-based characters, previously worked on various attractions for the Disney theme parks and Sid and Marty Krofft Productions, and the film Silver Bullet for Carlo Rombaldi.

    • Phil Baron (Piglet) and Will Ryan (Tigger and Rabbit) got their show-business start as a musical duo together, "Willio and Phillio." They later went on to play Teddy Ruxpin and Grubby, respectively, in The Adventures of Teddy Ruxpin, also created by Forsse.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: As of 2021, there has yet to be any official complete DVD release or digital release from Disney, nor is the series currently on Disney+. The only home media that exists for the series are a handful of out-of-print VHS compilations from the 80s and an educational DVD licensed by Disney that contains only two episodes, "Pooh's Great School Bus Adventure" and "Too Smart for Strangers."
  • The Other Darrin: Apart from Hal Smith as Pooh and Owl, most of this series' voice actors had not previously voiced their characters in the cartoons.
    • Phil Baron provides the voice of Piglet rather than John Fiedler. In fact, this is notable for being the only Disney-releated Pooh media where Fiedler was not the voice of Piglet during his lifetimenote .
