* DaddyDidntShow: The focus of one episode. Emmitt waits excitedly, all day, for his dad to show up and hang out with him for the day. He never shows up.

* EggSitting: The "babies" are water balloons that cry at random -- permanently if the parent doesn't switch it off in time. Shelley's the only one keen on the project, while most of the guys goof off or play recklessly with their babies. The girls fight back by adding enough water to double the size before handing the babies back. Shareena in particular had to watch the baby all weekend so Emmitt could go camping with his dad, but Mr. Roswell never showed. As a result, Emmitt isn't up for getting into mayhem with the other guys, who all wind up dropping their balloons, forcing three of the four families to do the project over.

* IWasQuiteALooker: Kisskillya, believe it or not. When the kids find a cave used by previous detention classes, we see an Evolution Line of her going from svelte and attractive, to...Kisskillya.

* KarmaHoudini: In "Too Good to Be Truant", when Shareena and Shelley are caught playing truant, Kisskillya assumes that Shelley didn't do this voluntarily and only punishes Shareena (well, her and all the other kids besides Shelley, because they were "holding back information"). Contrary to what you would expect in a kids' show, Shelley never admits her guilt, because she doesn't want to ruin her perfect attendance record.

* QuicksandSucks
* ShoutOut: Shelley quotes Sally Brown's outburst from ''[[ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}} It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown]]'' after waiting for an alien on the school roof with Emmitt during the school dance. (Ironically, Warner Bros. now owns the video rights to the ''Peanuts'' cartoons.)

* SpellingBee: In one episode, six of the kids aim to win a Get Out of Detention Free card. Shareena practices with morbid words, Shelley learns cheerful words, and the twins one-up each other with long words. During the bee, Shareena and Shelley fail to spell words from each other's practice books, Duncan's yo-yo string snaps trying to pronounce one letter too many, [[spoiler:the twins get double-disqualified when one of them interrupts the other's spelling of "rivalry," and Gug wins by spelling a word that he heard the twins spell during practice]].

Added DiffLines:

** When Shelley decides to tag along with Shareena playing hooky, she says the experience will be like ''Film/ThelmaAndLouise''. Also, Kisskillya's attempts in catching the truant students mirror that of [[Film/FerrisBuellersDayOff Ed Rooney]].

* WorkOffTheDebt: Happens to Shareena and Shelley when they can't pay a coffee shop bill.

''Detention'' (1999-2000) is one of the shortest-lived cartoons to ever come out of WarnerBros Animation. Not only did it [[ShortRunners last for just 13 episodes]], it wasn't a SpinOff to an earlier production, nor was it ever picked up for cable reruns. And to add insult to injury, it's been accused of ripping off Creator/{{Disney}}'s ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}''. In the end, though, it's still pretty dang memorable.
