  • The Amazing World of Gumball was originally titled Gumball only, even before Gumball Watterson was the main character or made.

The show took two years to make.

The Amazing World of Gumball was named "Cartoon Network UK's first original series", despite it being produced by Dandelion Studios and it's world premiere being in America.

The show has been renewed for a second season before it even premiered.

It was originally supposed to be an Adult Swim show about reject cartoon characters attending a remedial school.

The series changed air dates from Monday to Tuesday to accompany Level Up in America.

It appears that every episode had the word "the" in its name.
