Trivia: There are 6 entries in the trivia list – like these:
- Through most of the miniseries, the Wolf (Scott Cohen) is clad in a wardrobe suspiciously similar to the pinstripe jacket outfit sported by the wolf in Tex Avery's famous “Red-Hot Riding Hood” cartoons.
- The map of The Nine Kingdoms is a modified map of Europe.
- The 4th Kingdom is clearly based on Germany, from several details including: its central location on the map of the kingdoms (which was based on a map of Europe), its large size, and the proposition that it be divided into quarters to be run by the Council of the Nine Kingdoms (akin to Germany's division by the Allies after WWII)
