- This is Little Audrey's very first animated appearance, since 1958's Dawg Gawn.
- The series finally marks the animated debuts of Little Lotta and Little Dot who have only appeared in the Harvey Comics.
- The character designs and the characters' personalities for the series, are completely different than the original Little Audrey theatrical cartoons, as well as the Harvey Girls comic books.
- For this series, Dot is portrayed as an African-American.
- When DreamWorks created the Harvey Street Kids series, the trio had their different personalities.
- Unlike Audrey's official counterpart, who is a cute, mischievous and tomboyishly beautiful little girl, her Harvey Street Kids counterpart was more rebellious, perkier, more childish, more tomboyish, but has a short temper.
- Unlike Lotta's official counterpart, who is a hungry little girl who loves to eat, her Harvey Street Kids counterpart was a soft, sweet and gentle little girl, which was cuter than Audrey's official counterpart.
- Unlike Dot's official counterpart, who is a little girl obsessed with dots, spots, and round, colorful objects, her Harvey Street Kids counterpart is a smart and brainy African-American girl.
- To create the series even funnier, Audrey, Lotta and Dot wears more contemporary clothing, which was quite different, easily compared to their iconic 1930s dress.
- For this series, Audrey was given a different hairstyle, as she wears a long-sleeved shirt with a lightning bolt, jeans and a pair of hi-tops, while Lotta wears a jacket and a pair of boots.
- Unlike the original Little Audrey theatrical cartoons, and the Harvey Girls comic books, Harvey Street Kids is set in the 2010s (based on the kids' use of tablets and the internet).
- This series appears to be wackier, cartoonier and a lot more slapsticky than the original Little Audrey theatrical cartoons ever was. In fact, this series appears to have the highest level of slapstick as that of other cartoons such as Looney Tunes, Tom & Jerry, Pucca, Sabrina the Teenage Witch (1971), Donkey Kong Country, Rocko's Modern Life, Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius, Inspector Gadget, Ed, Edd n' Eddy, The Lion King's Timon & Pumbaa and MGM Tex Avery cartoons.
- Each episode title features either the face of one of the girls or their team symbol, similar to classic cartoons showing the face of a character to show who the star is, before the episode's name appears. In this case, if an episode focuses on either Audrey, Dot, or Lotta, that girl's face will show. If it doesn't have a particular focus, it shows their symbol.
- The series was renewed for a second season.
