Trivia

  • The pilot finally explains why Sheldon (Jim Parsons) doesn’t have a Texas drawl. In narration, he explains that he switched to a mid-Atlantic accent because people with Texan accents “don’t win Nobel prizes.”
  • Lance Barber, who plays George Cooper Sr, is the same actor who played Jimmy Speckerman, Leonard’s (Johnny Galecki) high school bully in one episode of The Big Bang Theory (2007) in 2011
  • Zoe Perry is the real life daughter of Laurie Metcalf from The Big Bang Theory (2007).
  • Iain Armitage (Young Sheldon) said he was committed to his role of Sheldon thanks to Jim Parsons (Adult Sheldon) coaching him and explaining who Sheldon is.
  • Annie Potts cites Dolly Parton as the basis for her performance and depiction of Meemaw.
  • The series begins in 1989, when Sheldon Cooper (played by Iain Armitage) is nine years old.
  • At least one episode opening per season is slightly different from the usual opening of Sheldon walking up, taking a superhero stance, then moving over slightly due to an approaching cow. In season one, a tumbleweed rolls by, making him jump out of the way. In season two, the camera does a 360 around him.
