* ActuallyPrettyFunny: In ''Junie b. Jones Has a Peep in Her Pocket'', Junie B. is hot-and-bothered about an upcoming school field trip to a farm because she's scared of ponies. Reason? An unscrupulous babysitter let her watch a cable television program titled ''When Ponies Attack''. Junie B.'s mother is not amused and wishes she would get over it, but when the father hears the title of the program covers his face, then bursts out in loud hoots of laughter, leading the mother to sarcastically comment that he's being a huge help. He ducks out of the room for what Junie B. calls a "time-out" and when he comes back apologizes to her, saying the show she saw was so ridiculous, he couldn't help it.

* ShoutOut: Though it's entirely possible that it's completely coincidental, in ''The Stupid Smelly Bus'', Junie B. {{Malaproper}}s that she likes "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" from ''The Wizard of Odds''. ''The Wizard of Odds'' was an actual, short-lived 70s game show hosted by Creator/AlexTrebek.

''Junie B. Jones'' is a series of books aimed at elementary school audiences, written by Barbara Park. The "B." stands for "Beatrice," but [[EmbarrassingMiddleName she doesn't like Beatrice, she just likes B., and that's all]]. The stories are told in the first person by Junie B. herself, and all of the stories in the original series also include a brief letter at the end by Barbara Park.

* MaliciousMisnaming: While Junie is her real name, May purposely calls Junie B. "Junie" without her "B" to upset her.
