  • Similar to the Green Bear, the 8-Bit Dog, and the Mushroom, the Hot Dog Guy mostly has non-speaking cameos.
  • His physical appearance resembles that of Earl, a hot dog police officer who appeared in "The Friend," "The Bus," and "The Heist."
  • He apparently owns the Sausage Dog, which is odd, because they are both sausages.
  • In "The Spoiler," Hot Dog Guy can be seen choking on a hot dog after Gumball accidentally tosses one in his mouth.
    • In "The Hug," Hot Dog Guy can not only be seen eating hot dogs out of his own free will, but he can also be seen enjoying it to a degree.
  • In all of his speaking roles prior to "The Hug," his voice changes.
    • In "The Castle," he sounded like Mr. Small.
    • In "The Check," his voice was somewhat more high-pitched.
    • Since the episode "The Hug," however his voice sounds completely different to that in both of his other speaking roles.
  • In "The Hug," it is revealed that his name actually is Hot Dog Guy.
    • It could be noted that Hot Dog Guy does not know what Gumball's name is. He refers to him as the "anonymous, blue stranger" in "The Hug," and "him" during their first encounter in "The Awkwardness."
