*** According to ''Sniz and Fondue'' creator Mike Brandon, the duo were given ANOTHER chance at their own show after it became a hit on ''KaBlam''. However, Brandon left Nickelodeon due to the studio politics and the ''Sniz and Fondue'' slot was given to another Nicktoon. That Nicktoon? ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants''.

* BeamMeUpScotty: Henry asking June if she can help him with her responding, "And I would do that why?" was commonly quoted on a few TV database websites in the early 2000s; this line never appeared in the show.


Added DiffLines:

* ExiledFromContinuity: Since the 2000s, characters from the show are left out of '90s Nickelodeon related merchandise and seldom show up in promotional material for The Splat. This is due to the one-shot shorts' rights reverting back to their creators and thus Nick not being able to do too much with the show anymore- they most likely don't want to overpromote a Nicktoon that can barely air anymore or get a DVD release without any major cuts or edits for copyright.

* AdoredByTheNetwork: [[ScrewedByTheNetwork Averted]] with the show itself. But if you watched Nicktoons in the mid-2000s back when they still played Nicktoon shorts during commercial breaks, ''Life With Loopy'' tended to be played the most on it's own. Usually the episode "Hi-Fi Frankenstein". The ''Prometheus And Bob'' short "Bridge" was also very common (''Sniz and Fondue'' and ''Action League Now!'' were also played but not as often, especially the former). They continued to play even after the show itself was removed from Nicktoons' schedule in 2005.

* BannedEpisode: The episode ("I Just Don't Get It") was banned from airing on Nicktoons TV due to the ''Action League Now'' short "Caged Thunder," which contained a lot of content that would be considered "TooSoon" following the September 11th attacks.

** The stand-alone specials (''Life With Loopy Birthday Gala-Bration'', ''The Off-Beats' Valentine's Special'', and ''[[PoorlyDisguisedPilot The Henry and June Show]]'') only aired once and never again, not even outside the US (and because they were not in the show's official episode count, they wouldn't be included with most episode packages airing overseas). As the ''Life With Loopy'' special was basically a ClipShow of old shorts from the series compiled with different wraparounds (the only new short that aired during the special, "Send In The Clones", was re-aired in "More Happiness Than Allowed By Law!" in season three), there was most likely no intent to air the special afterward. ''The Henry and June Show'' was also produced in order to get a spin-off of the titular duo off the ground- when the show wasn't picked up, Nick most likely didn't see any reason to air it again. As for why ''The Off-Beats' Valentine's Special'' never aired again, reasons are unknown.

* BadExportForYou: "Lava" was absent from international airings, which means viewers probably went "Huh?" when seeing it in the closing credits (it would eventually be cut from reruns in the US as well from 2000 on as Nick lost the rights to the short).

* CreatorsFavorite: Mark Marek confirmed in an interview on a (now defunct) fansite that June was his favorite character.
* CreatorsFavoriteEpisode: Noah Segan (Henry) stated in an interview in Nickelodeon Magazine that "Comics For Tomorrow Today!" was his favorite episode.



* NoExportForYou: The three standalone specials (''Life With Loopy Birthday Gala-Bration'', ''The Off-Beats Valentine's'', and ''The Henry and June Show'') were never aired outside the US.



**In Canada, the show only lasted a few weeks on Creator/{{YTV}} before it was yanked from the schedule.



* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: The Henry and June wraparounds were filled to the brim with various 1990s pop culture references, and it's taken UpToEleven in ''The Henry and June Show''. ''Action League Now!'' had a few of the pop culture references, but was nowhere near as heavy on them as Henry and June- most of the things dating the short to the late 1990s were the technology (and that most of the minor characters were Playskool dollhouse dolls from the early '90s). ''Life With Loopy'' almost averts it, with the exception of the technology shown (the first minute of the first episode even has Larry holding a boombox and waving around an audio cassette, for example) and some of the clothes.

* VindicatedByReruns: While lasting four seasons on the air, the show was one of Nick's lower-rated programs, was not aired as often as other Nicktoons airing at the time, and didn't have many diehard fans. When the show began airing reruns on Nicktoons in 2002, more viewers began to watch the show and caused it to gain a bit of a cult following.
