- What Could Have Been
- The original star of the short was going to be a luchador character, but after Craig McCracken drew a birthday card for his brother with three cute, Margaret Keane-inspired little girls, he found the idea of those characters beating up giant monsters hilarious and wrote a new story around them.
- Buttercup's name was originally Bud.
- Four shorts were planned, but only one was produced; the other three instead became Powerpuff Girls cartoons "Monkey See, Doggy Do", "Uh Oh, Dynamo", and The Powerpuff Girls Rule!
- Had the show followed the original setup of a Subverted Kids Show, we would have gotten an adult animated show instead of the one made for children.
