Nancy Cartwright researched naked mole rats to prepare for her role as Rufus (the naked mole rat).
Dr. Drakken's real name is Drew Lipsky.
Kim's Grapple Gun was first seen in "Bueno Nacho". She thought it was a hairdryer.
Ron bought Rufus at the "Smarty Mart" because his father is allergic to fur.
The big sign outside the school changes messages every time it's seen. Usually reflecting the current plot.
Mark McCorkle and Robert Schooley created the show in an elevator. McCorkle looked at Bob and said, "Kim Possible: she can do anything," and Schooley replied, "Her partner is Ron Stoppable: he can't do anything."
Kim Possible's role was originally offered to 'Anneliese Van Der Pol' but she turned it down in favor of That's So Raven. Eventually Christy Romano got the part.
On November 28th, 2005, the show was granted an extension of 22 episodes - a fourth season by Disney because of a months-long viewer campaign to save the show by the fans.
John Cena auditioned for the role of Ron Stoppable. When he didn't get the role he decided it was a sign from above to pursue a career in professional wrestling.
The location Kim states for the Seniors' uncharted island doesn't have an island in real life. It's about midway in the mouth of the Bay of Biscay in the Atlantic Ocean, about 160 miles north of Punta de Estaca de Bares, Spain and 220 miles southwest of Point du Raz, France.
When Kim and Ron walk into Mr. Hench's building you can hear the theme song in the form of elevator music in the background.
Carciatures of the creators, Bob Schooley and Mark McCorkle appear as locals.
When Wade tests both Ron's, then Rufus's, genius, the scene plays just like Spock's memory test from Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home.
Kim breaks in half way through the opening credits to say, "No, no seriously. You need Ron?"
The "magic words" that Ron uses to access the wand at the beginning of the episode are "Treguna Mekoides", the first two words from the magic spell in [Bedknobs and Broomsticks].
Ron Stoppable goes into action as the new Fearless Ferret while being monitored through radio communication with actor Timothy North, who played the Fearless Ferret on television. This is a spoof of Batman, and Batman Beyond. Timothy North is voiced by Adam West, who played Batman in the 1966 series and various other incarnations, while Will Friedle, who voices Ron Stoppable, also was the voice of Terry McGinnis, the new Batman in Batman Beyond who is monitored by the now-retired Bruce Wayne through radio communication.
This is show director, Steve Loter's favorite episode. It is also the only episode where Kim has no effect on the plot of the episode.
When Drakken's ship is self destructing, he says "All I want is what's coming to me! All I want is my fair share!" Which is exactly what Sally says in A Charlie Brown Christmas.
Motor Ed was designed around a voice John DiMaggio (Dr. Drakken) used in the recording studio to make everyone laugh.
Alternate Title; "To the X-Treme"
In a poll conducted on the "Kim Possible" website in 2005, viewers selected this as the best episode of the series.
This was the only episode to premiere in 2006.
SPOILER ALERT!!! In the arcade scene of "Ill Suited," the game Ron has his back to is actually a quick scene from Kim's last seconds on "Space Passage" in the episode "Dimension Twist".
SPOILER: It was revealed in a chat with the creators that Kim and Ron were always meant to end up together. Their relationship in the show, mostly during the third season, showed them slowly starting to fall for each other.
Since the series was only supposed to last 3 seasons, the last shot of 3rd season was the sign outside the school saying "The End." The first shot of 4th season is the same sign saying "Not the End."
Ron asks Kim at the end of the episode whether her water skiing over a shark was a dream. This is a reference to "jumping the shark", or continuing a show after many people feel it should have ended. Because Kim denies this (by hanging up the phone) the creators are saying that Kim Possible is not over and that this is not jumping the shark.
SPOILER: At the beginning, Drakken is playing chess with his irritating jail roommate, Frugal Lucre, who constantly talks about pointless topics in their cell. After Drakken escapes, Lucre's new roommate is Motor Ed, who in turn irritates Lucre with his talk of engines and cars. The character of Lucre is voiced by Richard Kind, and both the irritated (Drakken) an irritating (Ed) are voiced by John Di Maggio.
Alternate Title; "The Letters"
Originally scheduled for March 31, 2007, it was postponed by The Disney Channel in order to avoid being beaten in the ratings by Nickelodeon's 2007 Kids' Choice Awards special.
