Added DiffLines:

* OvershadowedByAwesome: The series was really good, but it was also overshadowed by the Disney incarnation of ''Doug'' (which most fans of the Nickelodeon version despised) and ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'' (a CultClassic SleeperHit).

* FemaleMisogynist: In "The Sisterhood" Grandma Lillian is shown to have very old fashioned views on a woman's role in life. Justified in that she most likely grew up in a time and place where women were seen as little more than mothers and housewives, and was too stuck in her ways to be more progressive.

** However, Nicky's comment about the local ice cream shop closing, Milo's comment about the arcade closing, and the outrageous price of pizza are pretty accurate.

* AddedAlliterativeAppeal: Grampa Leo and Grandma Lilly. In an in-universe example, Grandma explains they were originally going to give all their children L names, but she was so hopped-up on epidurals she wrote the L backwards on Laney's birth certificate, making her Janey. They would have changed it, but it would have taken too much paperwork.

* ArtEvolution

to:

* ArtEvolutionArtEvolution: In Season 2, the show transitioned from traditional cel animation to digital animation. The colors became brighter, the outlines became thinner, and the movements became less fluid and cartoony. However, the hand-painted backgrounds remained for the whole series.



* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: The episode "In Support Of" where Pepper Ann thinks she needs a support bra for an upcoming trampoline lesson in gym class [[spoiler: and ends up in trouble for flashing her class after Coach Doogan asks her where her support was (as in "her partner to spot the trampoline jumper")]].
** From the same episode, Pepper Ann comes home from school and hears her mother shout, "Pepper Ann, do you want breasts?" Of course, two seconds later we find out she means "chicken breasts".
** A semi-running gag on the show is Ms. Bladdar (the cynical English teacher who looks like [[WesternAnimation/{{Daria}} Jane Lane]] if her art career flopped and she ended up a JadedWashout with a teaching job) being the substitute teacher for an unseen teacher named Ms. Ford, who is implied to have a drinking problem (the episode "The Environ-Mentals" stated that Ms. Ford "...had too much [[FrothyMugsOfWater "punch"]] at last night's PTA meeting" and the "Quiz Bowl" episode had Principal Hickey state that Ms. Ford is on sabbactical at the "I Can Shine" Clinic)
** In the episode "You Oughta Be in Musicals!," a police officer is seen releasing a woman in tacky clothes. While it can be argued that she might just be some overdressed fashion victim who committed a petty crime, the officer's line, "Go free, you little vixen," clearly implies that she could be a hooker.
** On the episode where Pepper Ann tries to get her dad to appear on a game show with her, Pepper Ann reads some of her dad's old love letters to her mom...all of which have the risque parts removed (including one letter in which everything is cut except for "Dear Lydia"). When Pepper Ann asks her mom why the love letters are edited, Lydia can be heard running out of the house and driving away.
** In the Romeo and Juliet episode, all of the girls are auditioning to be Juliet opposite Craig's Romeo. Then they show [[AmbiguouslyGay Dieter]] auditioning for Juliet. To top it off they have him use the line "What satisfaction canst thou have, tonight?"
** From "Family Vacation": "I am forced to ride 3000 miles next to an opera loving ACCIDENT!" Out of context, that sounds very weird.
** In "One of the Guys" when Pepper Ann wants to enter a beauty pageant and her mother takes her measurements:
-->'''Lydia:''' 21... 21... 21... Peppie, if we're gonna win this thing, we are gonna need more than just a great dress.
-->'''Pepper Ann:''' Like... padding?
** Moose gets away with saying "I thought you said drama sucked" in the RomeoAndJuliet episode. It's not a swear word, it's more along the lines of crap, but it wasn't commonly heard on children's TV shows in the 1990s.
** In "Manly Milo", Pepper Ann is trying to help Milo get more guy friends so she brings some "manly" items to help him develop more "masculine" traits. One of those items she's about to give him is an issue of "Playdude" with a hunky man and the words "pecs! pecs! pecs!" on the cover (if the viewer looks close enough) before she sheepishly says, "oh, how'd that get in there?" and tosses it over her shoulder.
** Pepper Ann's ImagineSpot during "Nicky Gone Bad" is a rather dark (but still funny) example. While taking Nicky's [[PokeThePoodle "bad"]] streak to its (il)logical conclusion, she envisions Nicky betting at the dog tracks. [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything While covered in filth, missing several teeth, and speaking in desperate hysterics.]]
** In "G.I. Janie", Pepper Ann is describing video games that her aunt Janie purchased. One of the games is [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin "Celebrity Stalker".]] Another game is "Cuba Libre!" in which, as P.A. describes, "You're on a CIA suicide mission to overthrow Castro." [[FlatWhat What.]]
