They are: I wish that you and your entire family would kiss my ass and be my slaves forever; Okay Wishmaster, give me a never-ending supply of beer; I wish I had something that would clean this apartment, and I would never have to lift a finger; Hey Wishmaster, how about a million dollars; I wish I could escape from this police car, right now; I wish I could understand everything this dog is saying.

  • Wolf reads several books that were recommended by a psychiatrist. Known books mentioned are: Breaking the Cycle (How to Survive in Spite of Your Parents in the novel); Heal Yourself in Seven Days (The Courage to Heal in the novel); Stop Blaming Yourself Please (When Am I Going to be Happy in the novel);Help for the Bedwetting Child; Women Who Love Men, Who Hate Women (Women Who Love Too Much in the novel); Iron John; Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway; Curing why I'm so Miserable (What Do Women Want in the novel); and How to Marry the Girl of your Dreams.

  • Oddly enough Wolf dislikes dogs: in the mini-series he says, "Oh, I hate dogs" when Virginia refuses to leave Prince in the Snow White Memorial Prison. In the novel adaptation, Wolf says: "A dog is a wolf crossed with an old pillow. They are tail-wagging slipper collectors. And wolves can be shot on sight in his miserable kingdom. "

  • The map of The Nine Kingdoms is a modified map of Europe.

  • Season 1 Episode 1: Part 1

  • The episode features song "Night Fever" by the Bee Gees.

  • Throughout the series Wolf scratches his head 34 times.

  • The number 7 is really important here. Virginia was left at age 7 by her mother. Snow White left the castle when Wendell was 7. The 7 dwarves climbed over the 7 hills. In the book it is mentioned it took the gypsies 7 years to catch all the birds. Tony is cursed with 7 years bad luck when he breaks the mirror. When Relish first invades Bean Town he gives Wendell 7 days to come and face him. Anthony and Wendell all have 7 letters in their names. In the dream sequence in the swamp, Anthony is on the phone with Virginia and says that he now has a 7 year old son who he needs her to take care of.

  • Origin of the troll's phrase 'Looky Look': In the original Grimm's Fairy Tale "Cinderella" when the step-sisters try on the glass slipper birds chant to the prince: "Looky, look, look at the shoe that she took. There's blood all over, and the shoe's too small. She's not the bride you met at the ball" .

  • The currency of the 4th Kingdom is: The Wendell; after Prince/King Wendell. Wendells' are available in Gold Coins and Paper Notes.

  • At least as far back as his Grandmother, Snow White, blood members of the House of White all have names beginning with W: Snow White's son's was named Whitney, and Wendell's full name is Wendell Winston Walter White.

  • There are Five Women Who Changed History. They are: "Snow White, Cinderella, Queen Riding Hood, Gretel the Great and The Lady Rapunzel".

  • Whenever Wolf has been stressed, angered, frustrated, etc., he utters a Nine Kingdoms profanity (possibly for wolves only): "Cripes" and "Huff-Puff" or else he just growls.

  • The motto for Tony's failed business investment, the bouncy castle, was: 'Put the bounce back in your life'.

  • Virginia's address in the mini-series is: "Apartment 2006, No. 2, East-81st Street", but in the novel adaption its: "Apartment 17a, No. 2, East-81st Street".

  • Through most of his scenes in the miniseries, Wolf wears clothes suspiciously similar to the pinstripe jacket outfit sported by the Big Bad Wolf in Tex Avery's famous "Red-Hot Riding Hood" cartoons.

  • Tony (John Larroquette) also plays an uncredited role in the series. He is the giant bounding across the transformed New York City in the opening credits.
