  • All family members, including the Encyclopod, are voiced by Phil Hendrie.
  • The Waterfalls have only ever appeared in episodes and comics with a 5 in the production code.
  • The succession of Free Waterfalls can be likened to the succession of Hank Williams, with Frida being similar to Holly Williams (though none of the Hanks are actually named Hank).
