The salesman character Gil, who can't catch a break, was based on the character "Shelley Levene", played by Jack Lemmon in Glengarry Glen Ross (1992). It is also believed that Gil was based on Al Bundy from Married with Children (1986).

I'm not the kind of Dad who's much fun. But the love is there!
Some characters are declared dead in one episode, then appear alive in a later episode without explanation or a humorous purpose.
Many of the episodes include in-jokes during the credits, the Halloween specials change the cast and crews names to sound more morbid (E.g. Grave-Yeardly Smith). Sometimes the end credits theme is variated into something more thematic to the episode or spoofing a famous TV show or movie theme. The Gracie Films logo may have it's music changed to match the episode's theme, and a character may be saying something comical during the end credits.
Beginning with the show's cable syndication run on FXX on August 21, 2014, new syndication masters have been created. Each episode has been restored to its full length, and is now presented in 16X9 high definition. In addition, credits for the Spanish SAP Translation have been added to the end credits of each episode.
