The BoJack Horseman Show was originally a grittier show entitled The Life and Loves of Mitch McFadden and His Family and Friends. The original title was rejected by Marv Sbarbori because it was longer than two words. It was then changed to Mitch's Life, the show was then finally re-named The BoJack Horseman Show due to the drive to make the show into something that will be different from all the others and be remembered, in addition to copious amounts of alcohol.
- BoJack refuses to discuss matters about The BoJack Horseman Show to this day.
