    Jerry is the only character to appear in every episode. Elaine does not appear in "The Seinfeld Chronicles" and "The Trip (Parts 1 and 2)", Kramer does not appear in "The Chinese Restaurant" and "The Pen", and George does not appear in "The Pen".

    In addition to Jerry having a sister who is only being mentioned once, George has a brother who is mentioned only twice in the series.

    The backwards episode "The Betrayal" is based on a Harold Pinter play, "Betrayal", which also uses the same gimmick. Sue-Ellen Mishkie's fiancée in the episode is named Pinter in tribute to the playwright.

    In the episode in which Kramer options his coffee table book for a movie and moves to Florida, several newspaper headlines are featured as he runs for condo council president. In smaller print on these pages, other headlines read, "Larry David Gets Hole in One" "Larry David Injures Elbow", and "Larry David Never To Play Golf Again".

    When the final episode aired on May 14, 1998, the TV Land network honored the occasion by airing no programming in the show's timeslot. Instead the network just showed a still photo of a closed office door.

    During the original airing of the finale, MTV aired original cartoons that were specially timed to fit into the finale's commercial breaks, so that viewers could freely watch both of them and not worry about missing anything.

    Wow, those do seem to be especially brilliant.
