    • There were characters that never made it into the series, including a living Cupie Doll; evil balloon creatures; Buzzbeast who was a mutant dinosaur creature with saws embedded in his body; Scrambler (who could have been an early design for Kilobyte); a quintet of unnamed grunts who disguise themselves as carnival toys; and Mortar, described as a rock-like construction worker.

      A character who was going to appear in the cancelled Season 3 was Candy Floss, a woman who dressed like a motorcyclist and was described as attacking with an archery set, using explosive lollypops as arrows and could shoot out webs of candy floss.

    • Trivia: The haunted house in Duff's carnival and the one in the actual Ace Lightning computer game look exactly alike. Quite a coincidence.
