In addition, Isabella's mother, Vivian Garcia-Shapiro, went to a Mexican-Jewish Cultural Festival and often usesYiddish phrases.

- Isabella wears an outfit and bow similar to Helga Pataki of Nickelodeon's Hey Arnold!.
- The bow is also similar to another main Disney character: Marie the cat from The Aristocats, although Isabella's is more saturated of a pink than Marie's.
