* ShoutOut: Shelley quotes Sally Brown's outburst from ''[[{{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.)

'''''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.

* [[TheBigGuy Jim Kim]], a shy kid who is a big fan of comic books (particularly {{DC Comics}}, which Warner Bros. owns), to the point that he brings them up in regular conversation and tends to [[LoonyFan think he has their abilities]].

** While making fun of Jim's obsession with Franchise/{{Batman}}, Kisskillya sarcastically says she'll "See [him] in Gotham City." This was Kids WB's {{Tagline}} for ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries.''

* GoKartingWithBowser: Miss Kisskillya never was ''quite'' as bad as this, but Shareena still dreads having to go on a solo tour of Washington D.C. with her[[note]] It's solo because she didn't feel like following the rest of the gang towards Emmitt's latest theory[[/note]]. She's pleasantly surprised when Kisskillya turns out to be a fun and engaging guide.

Added DiffLines:

* 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]].

* DuelingShows: [[WesternAnimation/{{Recess}} Come on, I think you know already.]]



* HeyItsThatVoice: Emmitt = [[{{Futurama}} Philip J. Fry]] and [[{{Doug}} Doug Funnie]]. And Gug = [[MuchaLucha Rikochet]]'s original voice.
** Shareena is voiced by {{Tara Strong}} and the twins are voiced by real life siblings [[Series/{{Sister Sister}} Tia and Tamera Mowry.]]



* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Good luck with that. The show hasn't seen a DVD release, and hasn't been aired on television in years.

* {{Duck}}: In "Too Good to be Truant", Shareena and Shelley, skipping school, go to the mall. Shareena yells "Duck!" when she sees her mother at a clothing store and Shelley takes it to mean the store sells ducks.
