  • When the block began during CN's run, it shows an intro bumper of Wile E. Coyote chasing Road Runner in the futuristic desert, showcasing families to prepare for the film. This bumper was retired in October 2022 during CN's airing of Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events which was the last film on ACME Night to have an intro bumper for it.
  • Adult Swim stopped airing the ACME Night intro as of September 24, 2023. The very next week, it would show the adult swim advisory warning, followed by the movie right after.
  • It was speculated that the final ACME Night movie would be Space Jam: A New Legacy as every following Sunday was dedicated to Futurama. However, six weeks later The Princess Bride aired with ACME Night bumpers proving the block was not over.
