What is trivia? Trivia is all kind of unimportant details or information; using trivia questions in quizzes is popular so this cheat sheet might come handy sometimes.

tiger, elephant, lama (Animal pragmatism)

Until the appearance of Chris Perry in the fifth season finale episode "Oh My Goddess", the only male witches shown on the series have all been children.

In the episode "Chick Flick", the movie where Billy comes out of, is the same movie Phoebe is watching in the episode "Sense and Sense Ability". Where she is turning the television up. The movie was also used in the episode "Bride And Gloom".

The make-up design for the demon Belthazor was based on the same make-up style used for the character of Darth Maul in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (1999)

In every season finale, the front doors of the house are always closed in the last scene. In seasons one and two, Prue did this with her powers. In season three, the demon Shax closes the doors. In season four, the angel of destiny closes the doors. In season five, Chris slams these doors. Season six is the only one that differs, because the last scene is in the hospital recovery room. The recovery room doors shut automatically.
