- Americans Hate Tingle: At least one non-O&O stationnote would pull Small Wonder and run a local news program instead. Probably others, too.
- Germans Love David Hasselhoff: The show has been so popular in India that it spawned a copycat series in the Hindi language in the mid-to-late 1990s. The tone and humor of the dubbed dialogue was pitched so perfectly for the Indian audience that "Vicki" became a household name.
- Hilarious in Hindsight: In one early episode, the parents tell the neighbors that Vicki has laryngitis and send her away to gargle (to get her away from the neighbors), Vicki says "I don't have Gargle in my memory bank but I do have googol" (a "googol" is a number with one million zeros after it). While she doesn't mean the website (which wasn't around then), mentioning google while also mentioning her memory bank is a funny coincidence.
- Moe: A rare American example of the theme, and it seems to predate the modern Japanese concept by a decade or two.
- Narm Charm
- Periphery Demographic: In addition to the expected kid audience, Small Wonder also had a fairly large audience of senior citizens.
- Retroactive Recognition:
- Edie McClurg had a recurring role on WKRP in Cincinnati and would later go on to play Patty Poole on The Hogan Family, Grace in Ferris Bueller's Day Off, and the lady at the airport in Planes, Trains and Automobiles (yes, that lady).
- In addition to his work on Small Wonder, creator and executive producer Howard Leeds also co-created Silver Spoons and co-developed The Facts of Life.
- David Ruprecht wrote five episodes. Ruprecht is best known for his on-camera work as host of Supermarket Sweep.
- John Boni wrote two episodes. Boni is best known for co-creating When Things Were Rotten.
- David Silverman and Stephen Sustarsic also wrote two episodes. Both are best known for co-creating The Wild Thornberrys.
- Mitzi McCall co-wrote an episode. McCall is best known as one of the first and second season regulars of Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In
- Michael Poryes also wrote an episode. Poryes is best known as co-creator and co-executive producer of That's So Raven and Hannah Montana.
- Ben Starr also wrote an episode. Starr is best known for co-creating Silver Spoons and co-developing The Facts of Life alongside Howard Leeds.
