- There was going to be an Ice Cream Trashie in the series, but was scrapped for unknown reasons. He can be seen at the beginning of the Mondo TV Trash Pack Cartoon.
- In the Mondo TV cartoon, Trashola and a trash rim were in the logo in the place of Blow Fly and Trash-A-Pillar.
- This is the only series to have see-through bins.
- All pink Trashies are Ultra Rare in this series.
- There is a spin off series called Gross Ghosts that has the same trashies in shiny, traslucent colours that is released for Target only. This implies that the Series 1 characters have "died".
- There was a second version of the Series 1 commercial. It had different narration, and the Trash Pack theme was also sung differently.
- While Limited Editions were in the series, they were not on the checklist, cardback, OR collector's guide.
