** While "Now With More Flava!" may seem like a DownerEnding (it was the final episode aired and ended with Henry and June as security guards), the final episode ''made'' was "Going The Extra Mile".

* 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.

** Sniz and Fondue's {{pilot}}, "Psyched for Snuppa", was one of the two contenders for the fourth Nicktoon in 1992. The show it lost to ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'' (all things considered, it's not ''that'' bad, but still, it would have been nice for ''Sniz and Fondue'' to have their own show).

* EditedForSyndication: Along with being cut from international airings, ''Lava'' was also cut from all reruns after 2000, as it was the only short where Nickelodeon didn't own the rights to (most of the episodes that ''Lava'' appeared in were skipped on Nicktoons in the US, except for "Comics For Tomorrow Today!", which cut the short [[ClumsyCopyrightCensorship but forgot to cut the short's credits]]).

The same thing happened when "Not Just For People Anymore!" was aired on The Splat- the short and the Henry and June wraparound leading into it was cut, though it was still mentioned in the closing credits.



* OutOfOrder: The ''Life With Loopy'' pilot "Goldfish Heaven" aired as the seventh episode of the series. While the shorts weren't too continuity-heavy (usually a past short would be referenced in another one and that would be it), it was clear from both Larry introducing the audience to the characters and setting for the first time, as well as the rougher animation and different looks of the characters, that it was the first episode. It's possible that Nick didn't want to air it as the first episode due to all the EarlyInstallmentWeirdness of the short.
**Almost all the episodes eventually aired in the wrong order when it went into reruns (while "Your Real Best Friend!" was the first episode in production and airing order, "All Purpose [=KaBlam=]!" was the first one in the rerun order), to the point where even Wikipedia was listing the wrong episode order for years until the original airing orders for the first two seasons from Nick's website resurfaced in late 2010.



* RealSongThemeTune: The theme song are instrumental snippets from "2 Tone Army" by the {{ska}} band The Toasters.

Instrumental snippits of other songs by the band also appeared in the show: "Skaternity" was the ending theme to season one, "Everything You Said Has Been A Lie" was the ending theme for the rest of the series, "Don't Let The Bastards Grind You Down" was used for the "still to come" lead-ins to the first commercial break beginning in season two, and "Bye Bye Baby", "Daddy Cry", and "Fire In My Soul" were used as background music in the Henry and June segments (when the shorts weren't using cues from APM) beginning in season two.



* ScrewedByTheLawyers: Due to copyright issues with the one-shot shorts as well as the music videos, Nickelodeon has confirmed that the show will most likely ''never'' air again or get a legal DVD release.
** This is the reason why ''Lava'' ended up being cut from later airings of the show and overseas airings. The shorts were never owned by Nickelodeon at all; they only had the airing rights. When the rights went up, Nick had to cut it out of the show. When reruns began to air on Nicktoons, the only episode that had a ''Lava'' short that aired was "Comics For Tomorrow Today", with the short (and the Henry and June segment leading into it) cut. All other episodes with ''Lava'' never aired on Nicktoons in the US; possibly due to the cuts losing too much time in the episode for the timeslot.

While the show eventually aired on The Splat in 2016 (making it the first time it's been reran in the United States since 2005, not counting times where one episode would be brought out for Nicktoons-related marathons), only the first few episodes aired, without any segments that would cause legal issues (save for ''Lava'' which was cut anyway). Thus leaving The Splat with a very limited amount of episodes (even moreso than when the show aired on Nicktoons) that would prevent it from any regular reruns.

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Notably, the show is the only '90s Nicktoon to never receive an official home release on VHS, DVD, or [=iTunes=] and Amazon Instant Video. Nickelodeon confirmed that rights issues with some of the one-shot shorts is preventing a home media release from happening (and even if it did, expect it to be heavily edited to remove certain shorts for copyright). The only way you can see the show is through YouTube (provided it hasn't been removed for copyright reasons) and other video-sharing sites.
** Thankfully, the entire series is YouTube, and Viacom doesn't seem to be taking them down. Even the long lost "Henry and June Show" pilot was uploaded!
** Mark Marek has begun posting full episodes of the series on his website, including many of the "missing" episodes. Which is the closest thing fans will get to an official release.

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.
