Each chapter of the series was initially broadcast before the first show of Cartoon Network's primetime lineup. It would then be available for download the next day on Cartoon Network's Clone Wars site.
During the third season, most of the story takes place on the planet, Nelvaan. Nelvaan is a nod to Nelvana Studios, the company responsible for Droids (1985), Ewoks (1985), and the animated sequence from The Star Wars Holiday Special (1978). As well, the species of Nelvaan resemble the dog-like characters from Rock & Rule (1983), a movie made by Nelvana Studios.
