* ButtMonkey: Things never seem to go Oscar's way, although sometimes he does deserve the bad stuff that happens to him. A recurring example of this is that when ever the family gets invited to anything, he isn't included. In "Wedding Bell Blues," for instance, Oscar is the only one who doesn't trust Sugar Mama's new boyfriend, and everyone gives him grief over it. [[spoiler: But for once, Oscar turns out to be ''right'',]] for a totally [[RightForTheWrongReasons different reason]].

This AnimatedSeries on the DisneyChannel is the first on cable TV to feature an African-American family. It aired on the Disney Channel from 2001-2005. Penny Proud is 14 years old, but her parents, Oscar and Trudy, still treat her like a little girl. Also living with Penny are her one-year-old twin siblings, [=BeBe=] (boy) and [=CeCe=] (girl), and her paternal grandmother, "Suga Mama". Ran for three season, ending with MadeForTVMovie (though later ported to [[DirectToVideo DVD shortly after]]) abruptly titled, ''The Proud Family Movie'' where Penny and the Proud Clan have to stop an evil scientist from unleashing peanut clones across the world (yeah, don't ask, despite how normal seeming this series looks, it's ''very'' weird). Reruns can be seen Saturdays on the music channel Centric, and very occasionally, on Disney, where it originated.

* BeingEvilSucks: Penny finds this out the hard way when she decides to make it big by performing a FaceHeelTurn and then publishing a tell-all about being a bad girl - she alienates everyone, disappoints her teacher to the point of tears, and gets sent to boot camp. She escapes, but the Gross Sisters won't shelter her, she misses her family (who she knows won't take her back), and she has nowhere else to go, so she decides to reform and get back to normal life.

** Sugar Mama seems to bear a resemblance to [[TylerPerry Madea]]. ** Also, anyone else think that some of the animators for this show later worked on ''PrincessAndTheFrog''? Dr. Facilier and Mama Odie bear a resemblence to Oscar and Suga Mama, respectively. * ExtravertedNerd: Myron. Suga Mama calls him "Urkel" at one point, a reference to another Extraverted Nerd, Steve Urkel of ''FamilyMatters''. [[note]]Makes sense since she was voiced by the actress who played [[FamilyMatters Harriet]], the one who was supposed to be the focus of the show.[[/note]]

* IAteWhat: One episode involves Suga Mama's lemon squares becoming massively popular to the point of ending up on Oprah. This is the part where the whole world discovers that when she says she "puts her foot in it," she means it literally. [[DontExplainTheJoke As in sticks her foot in the batter]]. The audience promptly starts hacking.

* {{Jerkass}}: For a family friendly show, there are a lot of unlikeable characters here. ** Too many to count in this show, every character has their jerkass moments, heck even sweet Zoey and the wonderful Mama-Trudy. Dijonay really takes the cake: she constantly uses Penny, and ditches her at the drop of a hat, yet when Penny does something wrong in the friendship, [[DoubleStandard then Penny is a flat out]] [[SarcasmMode horrible]] [[DoubleStandard friend.]] Sometimes Dijonay even [[KarmaHoudini gets away with]] her jerkass-ness. Normally, a girl with Sass is awesome... but Dijonay averts that concept most definitely!
