Dan Schneider is probably best known to adults as Dennis Blunden on the old ABC sitcom ''Series/HeadOfTheClass''. But to millions of children (and kids-at-heart), he is the creator, writer and producer of several of the most well-known and loved {{Kid Com}}s. His work portfolio almost entirely is composed of {{Nickelodeon}}'s premier shows (and vice-versa: his shows make up a very large chunk of Nickelodeon's live-action programming).

* FanNickname: Troll Schneider. Earned through years of trolling his fanbase via Victorious and iCarly.



* ScrewedByTheNetwork: Seems to have an odd habit with a few of his more popular shows.
** ''The Amanda Show'' ended without warning for after three seasons, leaving the ShowWithinAShow, ''Moody's Point'', on a cliffhanger that never got resolved.
** ''Victorious'' likewise ended at three despite being very high in ratings.
** ''Sam and Cat'' was his shortest run with only one season. Though behind the scene drama was to blame for that one.

* HistoryRepeats: iParty with Victorious, the Victorious episode starring Jennette, and Sam and Cat all aired on the second Saturday of the month of June of the years they did.
* JerkAss - Wouldn't be a Dan Schneider show without a couple.
* KarmaHoudini - There usually are a few JerkAss characters in his works that receive absolutely no sort of comeuppance or consequences for their behaviors and actions; the most {{egregious}} example is Megan, the VillainSue of ''Series/DrakeAndJosh'' who was a borderline sociopath not to mention [[CreatorsPet very well liked by the writers and despised by the fanbase.]]
** One unknown troper put it best when referring to ''Series/ICarly''. To paraphrase: "This is a Dan Schneider show, meaning that students/teachers will regularly get away with stuff that would get them a stern talking to at best and expelled/fired/arrested at worst."
* LaughTrack. AvertedTrope for ''Series/{{Zoey101}}'', due to it being a single camera work shot on location. Played very straight with every other show he's made.

He can be considered to be Nick's sitcom equivalent to comic playwright Neil Simon of ''Theatre/TheOddCouple'' (which Dan's show ''DrakeAndJosh'' bears similarities to) fame.
