  • What is Love? features the last performances of both Carl Reiner and Betty White, before their deaths on June 29, 2020 and December 31, 2021 respectively.
  • When Forky has an epiphany and learns a lesson, Boo's theme from Monsters, Inc. plays.
  •  In the first episode, Forky mentions that he was made from trash "like, two days ago", meaning that the show presumably takes place immediately after the events of the fourth film, but before the post-credit scenes (explaining why Karen Beverly has yet to appear) or Forky forgot when he was made since in the day he was made, the road-trip and carnival were actually 3 days and it was night when Toy Story 4 ended. 
  • Mr. Spell 1st Appearance since Toy Story 2 he was donated to Bonnie between the events of Toy Story 2 & Toy Story 3
  • This is one of the rare canon Toy Story productions that doesn't feature main characters such as Woody, Buzz, and Jessie.
    • This is most likely because this series of shorts, as previously stated, takes place after the fourth film, since Woody doesn't appear.
