* BannedEpisode: The Powerpuff Girls series finale "See Me, Feel Me, Gnomey" was banned, due to the heavy use of strobe effects (which would have triggered epileptic seizures in more sensitive viewers, much like the notorious ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' episode "Electric Soldier Porygon." Reportedly, it was banned for allegedly having Communist undertones, but this was never proven). The episode can now be seen on the complete series DVD set for the show and on the complete series collection on Netflix.

* BoxOfficeBomb: Warner Bros' marketing for the movie was quite lousy (as stated in the main page), but CN did their part and promoted it to heck and back (even on Creator/AdultSwim). Outside the channel, however, there was barely any mention of it. Not helping was it was pitted against ''Film/MenInBlackII'' on the opening weekend, was overshadowed by the surprise hit ''Like Mike'' and Warner Bros focusing their campaign on the ''Film/ScoobyDoo'' live-action movie. As such it preformed poorly. Because of this, the series finales for ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'' and ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' were scaled back to made-for-TV fare rather than made into feature films.

* AdoredByTheNetwork: Along with ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'', was Creator/CartoonNetwork flagship series (during the "CartoonCartoons" era of Cartoon Network) that was rerun daily until 2002.
* AndYouThoughtItWouldFail: The test screening for the first pilot was an absolute disaster, with children complaining about the unusual character designs and one even going as far as to say that Craig [=McCraggen=] should ''be fired''[[note]]This kid would later serve as the inspiration for [[TakeThat the show's bully Mitch Mitchelson]][[/note]]. Craig went to work redesigning the characters with more traditional features, but then-president of Creator/CartoonNetwork Mike Lazo reassured him that a negative reaction was better than a lukewarm reaction, and that they shouldn't change a thing.
