[show]Although the family's surname was revealed as Wilkerson in the pilot episode, it was decided afterwards that the family shouldn't have a last name. A running joke on set was that the family's last name was 'Nolastname'. This is officially confirmed in the final episode "Graduation" when Francis drops his work pass and his surname is briefly seen. Further confirmation can be seen when Malcolm is introduced to the stage for his speech. His last name is not heard as the microphone screeches at the crucial moment but you can read the announcer's lips clearly saying 'Malcolm Nolastname'.
- "Krelboyne", the name of the class of gifted students to which Malcolm belongs, is taken from the name of the nerdy hero of The Little Shop of Horrors.
- The signs in Dewey's Busey classroom read, "Put ups - not put downs," and "Words not hands."
