* CoolLoser: Ginger Macie and Darren are all great people, but not as popular or "successful" at Lucky Jr. High. Subverted with Dodie--she desperately wants to be part of the "in crowd", but the popular kids can sense her wannabe attitude a mile away.

Added DiffLines:

* InterclassFriendship: Although she's not on the same level of friendship with Ginger as Dodie and Macie, Courtney Gripling is nevertheless on good terms with her and often tries to be Ginger's friend despite coming from a rich family while Ginger is middle-class. Her younger brother Blake has a friendly rivalry with Ginger's younger brother Carl.

* AmbiguousReligions:
** Lois has a Jewish father but she doesn't seem religious herself. The ChristmasEpisode shows that the Foutley's celebrate Christmas, though whether it's secular Christmas or Christian Christmas is unknown. Ginger learned about her Jewish heritage and became interested in it but it's never stated if she converted or not.
** Lois believes Carl is an atheist however lines imply he believes in a god. It's unknown if he is agonistic, atheistic, Jewish, Christian, or whatever other religion.

* LimitedWardrobe: Averted, notable because most cartoons don't. The main characters had about 5-6 outfits they rotated through. Even minor characters had at least 2 outfits.

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 Creator/{{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.

* UsefulNotes/AmericanAccents: Surprisingly few for a show set in New England. Lois has a thick [[BigApplesauce Noo Yawk]] accent, and the Griplings speak with posh mid-Atlantic (mid-Atlantic as in FDR-ish, not mid-Atlantic as in DC-area) accents, but most of the main cast sounds vaguely Midwestern.
** Justified in that Connecticut is the least accented out of all the New England states and also the more uppercrust Connecticut people tend to have accents that sound more Mid-Atlantic/Locust Valley lockjaw than anything else.
** The episode "Ms. Foutley's Boys" has Buzz and his boys speaking with horrifically thick Southern accents, and engaging in many stereotypes thereof (i.e., paintball, sloppy eating, pit stains, watching cartoons in underwear, scratching selves).

Added DiffLines:

** For those interested, the Melissa Disney version (which, for anyone who hasn't heard it, can be found [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PkCekmOvEbY here]]) is slightly different in intonations and some of the background sounds can be heard.

Serving as the 15th show in the popular Franchise/{{Nicktoons}} franchise, the show focuses mainly on the life of junior-high-school student Ginger Foutley. She, along with her friends Darren Patterson, Dodie Bishop and Macie Lightfoot, all try to rise from the position of school geeks as they solve many conflicts that come their way. Luckily for Ginger, the most popular girl in school, Courtney Gripling, has taken a liking to her and often includes her in her social plans. She is intrigued by her (what Courtney calls them) 'gingerisms'. However, Miranda Killgallen, Courtney's right hand woman, makes sure that she is not bumped down from her position thanks to Ginger. At home, Ginger records her lively adventures in her diary. Her little brother Carl, is often scheming with Hoodsey Bishop in his own side plots; and her mother, Lois, is always there for advice, which Ginger is always open to listen to. The series takes place in the fictional town of Sheltered Shrubs, located in Connecticut. It ran for about 4 years from 2000 to 2004 (with the finale being released on DVD and a couple of the episodes leading up to the finale being left unaired in the US, although one of these episodes aired on Nicktoons in 2006, and four more of them aired on TeenNick's The Splat block in October 2016).
