It was among the few animated series in {{Nickelodeon}} that was ahead of its time, featuring (relatively) realistic situations and teenage issues which soon set a mark for the [[Franchise/{{Degrassi}} future]] [[SouthOfNowhere titles]] to come in the {{TeenNick}} time slot. The most notable among the show pointed out that it didn't follow the LimitedWardrobe trope compared to the other Nick titles. It is also one of the only shows, not just on Nickelodeon, but perhaps in all of children's entertainment, to portray interracial romance in a serious (and positive) light.

* BlondesAreEvil: The TokenEvilTeammate and DesignatedHero of Ginger's posse is blonde. Averted with Courtney, who isn't that mean.
* BlondGuysAreEvil:
** Blake Gripling. He's not really evil so much as a snob. There are times he even dips into nice territory, although not as much as his sister.
** Buzz and his sons also play this somewhat straight. While Lois is dating Buzz, he and his sons cause chaos around the house, what with Buzz's "man's touch" and his sons' out-of-control behavior.
** Averted with Hoodsey. He's blond under that hood, but this trope could be the reason he covers his hair.

Added DiffLines:

* NiceMeanAndInBetween: The three popular girls. Courtney is the nice one, often giving Ginger advice, Miranda is the mean one who is always jealous and doesn't want her spot taken, and Mipsy is the inbetween who is devious, but a little lazy.

* FriendlyScheming: The April Fools episode has Ginger sending a fake love letter to Dodie from Dustin, the weirdest guy in school - a joke gone terribly wrong when Dodie responds favorably, and Dustin does not. [[spoiler:In the end, it is revealed that the joke was actually on Ginger - Dustin was in on it, along with Dodie and Macey.]]

* ShownTheirWork: Somebody on the writing staff grew up in Connecticut, or else put a ton of research into the setting. The subtle-but-present suggestion that the rich kids (Who make up almost the entire cast) are mostly W.A.S.P.s, and that the working class kids are mostly Catholic or Jewish is definitely TruthInTelevision.

** As can Blake be to Courtney.
** Averted with Hoodsey and Dodie who rarely have been shown arguing, though they aren't shown interacting as often as Ginger and Carl or Courtney and Blake.



* AscendedExtra: Noelle Sussman, who can be seen in multiple episodes as a background character. Pretty much lampshaded by Carl when he can't recall her despite being in his class. Hope Rogers too. Her pre-makeover self can be seen in the background in plenty of episodes.

to:

* AscendedExtra: Noelle This show has many examples.
** Mipsy was originally just the popular girl in Courtney and Miranda's group who got slightly more lines than the others. It didn't take too long before she became TheDragon to Miranda and formed somewhat of a trio to her and Courtney.
**Noelle
Sussman, who can be seen in multiple episodes as a background character. Pretty much lampshaded by Carl when he can't recall her despite being in his class.

Hope Rogers too. Her pre-makeover self can be seen in the background in plenty of episodes.

* GRatedDrug - The Mocoloco Frothinator in "Stuff'll Kill Ya."

The Mocoloco Frothinator in "Stuff'll Kill Ya.""
** In "Detention", Carl and Hoodsey partner with Blake in selling homemade tea. The leaves used in the tea are from a bush in the Foutleys' backyard and cause everyone who drinks the tea to choke. This results in the police being called to Carl's doghouse (which itself can be considered a G-rated meth lab at times) over some "bad tea in the neighborhood".



* OutOfCharacterMoment: "Wicked Game", while Dodie conspiring to break up Ginger and Darren sadly isn't that much of a stretch, Macie actually getting involved with it too is quite out of character.

** In "Ten Chairs", Dodie of all people is the one who finally convinces Ginger that inviting Jonas to Thanksgiving dinner is a bad idea. Normally, given her numerous examples of ToxicFriendInfluence in the previous seasons, Dodie would have probably ''encouraged'' Ginger to do such a thing.

* YourTelevisionHatesYou: Happen so to Ginger in "The Wedding Frame." She is still reeling from her break-up with Darren and is hesitant about entering into a new relationship, is at home watching a music video where the curly and titian haired chanteuse is singing about being abandoned by the man she loves. This trope is soon turned Up to Eleven where Ginger soon imagines herself and Darren in place of the characters in the song and she finally drowns.
