  • The film about Quentin Trembley states he was elected in 1837 as the 8½th President of the United States, but there were elections in 1836, that in it Martin Van Buren was elected eighth President, and in 1840, Trembley's alleged replacement William Henry Harrison (who had lost in 1836) defeated Van Buren's bid for re-election and became the ninth President of the United States.
  • According to Alex Hirsch on a Reddit AMA, the whole series takes place over the course of one summer.[3]
