- Number Fun is the first season to be distributed by BBC Studios. This is because at first, "High Five!" and "Ten out of Ten" (officially) were distributed by BBC Worldwide before merging with BBC Studios on April 1st, 2018.
- Numberblock Zero would debut in this season, but only appear in her namesake episode. She would not be seen again until Series 3 began.
- When the Numberblob was first seen, fans thought that Zero was red and round. This would be proven incorrect.
- Eight's design has minor changes for some unknown reason: not only does his mask become lighter, but his pupils also become noticeably smaller.
- The DVD/Blu-ray release date is unknown, just like Seasons 1-4, but is confirmed to be in September 2019. (List of DVD releases)
- The first four episodes of this season include only Numberblocks 1-5. In the fifth episode, Zero, only Numberblocks 0-3 appear. Numberblocks 6-10 start to appear in the sixth episode, Now We Are Six To Ten.
- The topics taught in the first five episodes of this season are under Red Level One; the rest cover topics under Orange Level Two. It would be inaccurate to say that the events of the first five episodes happened before the Numberblocks manage to go above Five; during Ten, One asks the purpose of Ten's zero.
