** Devlin doesn't appear in the second film, as a new director for OSS is chosen to replace him, and is in fact, never even mentioned. In the third film he reappears as the president of the United States. While in the film is explained that after retiring from his position in the OSS, he ran for president as he wanted to be in a position of power that was public instead of the secret one he previously held, the real life reasoning is that Rodriguez couldn't afford to have Creator/GeorgeClooney on screen for more than three minutes of screentime.

The character of Machete originated in this series, and a spoof of what he'd look like as a B-movie action hero later appeared in one of the ''Film/{{Grindhouse}}'' trailers. That trailer was eventually made into ''{{Film/Machete}}''[[note]]and the sequel ''Film/MacheteKills''[[/note]], a full-length exploitation flick parody. Although Rodriguez planned ''Machete'' starring Trejo long before ''Spy Kids'' started production, the project sat [[DevelopmentHell stagnant]] for years. In the meantime, Rodriguez decided to insert a more family friendly version of the character in the ''Spy Kids'' movies. Which means that, yes, ''Machete'' and ''Spy Kids'' [[SharedUniverse share a universe]]. Try watching these films the same way again.

* AwesomeButImpractical: To the point of being a CentralTheme in the second film. The aforementioned wristwatches are premiere GadgetWatches but are so loaded with the necessary and required crap that there's no more room for a clock. Gary and Gerti also have watches, which can tell time, but are so huge they cover their entire forearms. Donnagon Giggle's office as the new head of the OSS is so huge that he has to hopscotch across precarious pillars over what is presumably a bottomless pit just to get to his desk, which is hugely contrasted to Gregorio's office, which is as simple an office as you can get.



* ManicPixieDreamGirl: Subverted. Carmen is attracted to Gary Giggles in the second movie, insisting that she could "change him", and her giving up on this is played as CharacterDevelopment. Needless to say, {{shipping}} ensued anyway.

Added DiffLines:

* ShipTease: Especially in the second film. Carmen with Gary and Juni with Alexandra.

** In the second film, Devlin is no longer the president, and is in fact never even mentioned, despite appearing in the first and third movies as him. While the in-universe explanation is likely that he simply lost re-election the first time, the real life reasoning is that Rodriguez couldn't afford to have Creator/GeorgeClooney on screen for more than three minutes of screentime.

** Both of which are jokes in themselves. Rocket, Racer, and Rebel are the names of three of Rodriguez's sons.

Eight years later in 2011, Rodriguez saw fit to continue the series with ''Spy Kids: All The Time in the World''. The story this time focuses on a new pair of siblings whose step-mother is a retired spy for the OSS. When she gets into trouble, the kids find out her secret and set out to save her with some assistance from a [[SheIsAllGrownUp now grown Carmen and Juni]]. Yes, it's [[RecycledScript rehashing the first movie's plot]], but in a way that brings everything around full circle. However, the film suffered from inevitable [[{{Sequelitis}} sequelitis]] and wasn't well received as critics trashed it once it hit the box office with Rotten Tomatoes giving it a 23%, even ''less'' than the third movie.
