The show was also run in Britain on Creator/{{CBBC}} and in America on Creator/FoxKids line-up (around the time that FK was airing horror comedies, like ''Series/{{Goosebumps}}'', ''Series/EerieIndiana'', and ''WesternAnimation/{{Toonsylvania}}''- Fox Kids even advertised ''Round The Twist'' as an Australian version of ''Goosebumps''), and hence the series has some recognition in both places.

* {{Reincarnation}} - Played for laughs in ''Next Time Around''.
* ReTool: And how. The first episode is actually rather different to the rest of the series, introducing several ideas (Pete's false tooth and love of awful jokes) that are never used again, and being the only episode to not feature an opening title sequence. Also, this is the only episode where Nell is not referred to by her given name.
** Nell is called by her first name later in the episode -- it's only when she's being introduced that Tony calls her "Ms Rickards", and he's arguably just being polite. It's not a retool so much as the characters just getting to know each other better.

** The ''entire'' episode of "Lucky Lips" basically has Pete getting kisses from other women via a tube of magical lipstick. The scene that falls past the radar in particular is when he uses it in the classroom and winds up "forcing" ''every'' girl in the classroom to kiss him -- including Linda, and right through to the teacher. (When an unsuspecting Tony later tries on the lipstick, Linda groans "oh ''no!''" and runs away as fast as she can.)

* MoralGuardians: The show almost didn't see the light of day (and was the subject of a lot of censorship issues) in its native country of Australia and when it was exported to the UK (though not America, surprisingly), due to its gross-out humor (most of which centered on vomiting, urination, body odor, and defecation), mild sexual content (references to incest, KissingUnderTheInfluence, pregnancy, and interspecies romance), and subject matter that most MoralGuardians wouldn't find appropriate for children's TV (nudity, death, dangerous stunts, and NightmareFuel).
