The Walking Dead Trivia

The Walking Dead TV series is based on the comic books created by writer Robert Kirkman and artist Tony Moore. Moore was replaced as the artist by Charlie Adlard starting with issue #7. It was first published in 2003 by "Image Comics".

Rick Grimes son Carl often wears a t-shirt with a logo on it based on another Robert Kirkman character called "Science Dog". That character has a dog's head with a furry human body. He is a heroic scientist and adventurer who often saves the world from evil forces.

Only ten out of the twenty characters at the camp were in the comics. They are Rick, Lori, Andrea, Carl, Glen, Dale, Shane, Carol, Sophia, Jimmy and Amy.

The storyline of the Walking Dead TV series takes place in issues 1-6 of the comics.

Although it is obviously what they are, the zombies were never called that once in the whole first season. They were called a variety of terms including "Geeks", "Lamebrains", "Roamers", "Test Subjects" (By the CDC [Center for Disease Control]) and "Walkers".

Talk about getting into character! When lunch time came around the set the human cast members ate separately from the zombie cast members!

All of the cast members who play zombies were put through training on how to move and walk as a zombie.

The Walking Dead is the 2nd series on AMC to highlight a Winnebago. The first was "Breaking Bad" although that one is bigger than the one on The Walking Dead.

In the final two episodes of the first season fans met Dr. Edwin Jenner who was a doctor at the CDC. That character is a take-off on "Edward Jenner" who was the real-life developer of the smallpox vaccine. He is commonly referred to as the "Father of Immunology" and since Smallpox was so infectious and had such a high death rate it's generally felt that he saved more lives than anyone else in history.
