* CreatorBacklash: Up until the movie, Arlene Klasky hated Angelica and following the episode "The Trial" (Though as of 2016, she has changed her tune and actually admitted that it's her favorite episode and the one that stood out to her the most, because she was impressed that the writers had come up with an intelligent way to satirize Rashamon) she complained to the writers that the babies were starting to act too old for their age.

** "Cuffed/The Blizzard" from Season 3 was pulled from US reruns on Nick and Nicktoons by the mid 2000's, probably over concern of small children playing with handcuffs. It still aired in other countries and is available on DVD and iTunes, and TeenNick's programming block ''The Splat'' aired it on December 20, 2015.
