* ScrewedByTheNetwork: Even though there were five seasons and two made-for-TV movies (and the creative team decided when the series was to end, as opposed to some MTV higher-up telling the creative team that they have to end it[[note]]though the finale movie was made instead of a short postscript season that would have saw Daria and Jane adjusting to college life because MTV's animation department was about to be shut down, which is why the shows ''WesternAnimation/CloneHigh'' and ''3 South'' were canceled after their first season, despite being considered average to very good[[/note]]), fans would argue that this still fits because the entire series wasn't released on DVD until 2010 (and, even then, some purists will argue that {{MTV}} should have kept the licensed music instead of redubbing it with generic production music), not to mention the reruns that aired on Noggin/The-N that edited out the more disturbing, sexual, and/or depressing content[[note]]yet they let ''[[Series/DegrassiTheNextGeneration Degrassi]]'' reruns air uncut and uncensored[[/note]], even though the reason the [=DVDs=] took so long was to get as much of the licensed music as possible and getting all of it had, clearly, become a legal impossibility.

* In 2012, there was talk of a possible revival of the show, including rumors of a sequel series that would focus on Daria's college years. However, this seems to have died down completely.

* TheOtherDarrin: Mack had a total of 4 (count 'em '''FOUR''') different voice artists over the 5 seasons of the show. Another example was Sarah Drew (yes, the same Sarah Drew from ''Series/GreysAnatomy'') replacing Jessica Zaino as the voice of Stacy mid-way through season 1.

[[RealLifeWritesThePlot This is also accredited to the reason Mack got so little screentime and next to no development during the series]].

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Glenn Eichler was offered, after season five, either a TV movie to wrap up the series or a half-season extension to keep Daria going. He chose the former (MTV at the time had started producing TV movies and Daria's first tv movie was a huge hit for the network), which is a good thing as shortly after Daria ended, MTV killed it's animation division and the remaining animation shows on the network all got royally screwed over with them airing at random times and having episodes never air at all, which is why ''CloneHigh'', ''3 South'', and the later episodes of ''Celebrity Deathmatch'' (not the revival that was on MTV2, the episodes after Stacy Cornbread died) all ended suddenly or were phased out in favor of other shows.

*** Speaking of which, plans to have Daria cameo on the revived Beavis and Butthead were conceived but shelved due to MTV declaring her off-limits to Mike Judge (who gave up all claim to her when the character got her own show). MTV wanted to keep the option open to one day reviving Daria and Judge wanted to ignore the series. MTV won and Daria and her series were left untouched. (They ''did'' reference it in-show at one point; Beavis thought Daria had died until Butt-Head tells him she just moved away.)
