* AcademicAlphaBitch: Alice Kane, who runs for class president against Pepper Ann, and rubs her high grades in her face.



* BareYourMidriff: Pepper Ann, slightly, due to how her shirt goes up in the middle.

Pepper Ann, slightly, due to how her shirt goes up in the middle.



* ComicallyMissingThePoint: The episode "In Support Of" is framed around Pepper Ann thinking her gym teacher means a bra when she speaks about "support". [[spoiler: She just means a buddy to help her on the trampoline]].



* DoItYourselfThemeTune: A fairly early Disney example, as Kathleen Willhoite (voice of the title character) also contributes the vocals.
** Down to imitating a guitar riff.

vocals. Down to imitating a guitar riff.



* FieryRedhead: Pepper Ann, though she's more spacy and neurotic than fiery.
** In the uniform episode she admits that it's auburn, which other characters agree to once she tries to take credit for being the trope.
* FictionalVideoGame: Crunch Pod

* GenkiGirl: Brenda, Pepper Ann's old camp friend, is loud and energetic and thoroughly exhausting to be around. She's voiced by the Western Animation queen of this trope, Creator/TaraStrong.



* HairTodayGoneTomorrow: A variation. A flashback to Moose's birth shows Janie (who sports a bob in the present day) with magnificent RapunzelHair as she was a hippie at the time.



* ParentalBonus: In the first episode Pepper Ann goes into Abe's Mall (which features a big statue of Abe Lincoln out front) to buy some pimple cream. The names of various shops in the mall float behind her, including "John Wilkes Photo Booth," "Getty's Burgers," "Four Score and Seven Year Pets," and "Civil Wear."

* PoorCommunicationKills: Pepper Ann ''thinks'' this is the case in an episode where Trinket is transferring to a private school. She looks back on her previous interactions (which are actual clips from other episodes) and then starts to reinterpret them as if Trinket was making several cries for help. As Pepper Ann tries to aggressively bond with Trinket at a going away party, Trinket gets fed up and calls her a freak.

* TookAThirdOption: When it was time to elect a student body president, the campaign degraded into a mudslinging contest between P.A. and her rival Alice Kane. On the day the votes were counted, Principal Hickey noted that despite the revitalized participation of the students in this recent election, the winner was [[spoiler: joke candidate MarkHamill. When the girls demand a recount, Nicky reveals she was the reason why Hamill won by way of raising support for him behind the scenes. P.A. points out how Nicky had been complaining about no one taking elections seriously and how the candidates should focus on the issues, and Nicky counters with a speech about how she used her right to vote to form a protest campaign against P.A. and Alice Kane for the way they turned the election into a petty grudge match. Even Hickey agrees Nicky and tells the girls they should be ashamed of themselves.]]

* CatchPhrase: "My life is trash." (said whenever Pepper Ann does something that makes her a social outcast, like admit that she bought pimple cream at Abe's Mall [a.k.a the "Abys Mall," as only freaks and geezers go to a place like that])

* IWantMyJetPack: "The Finale" takes place in 2012. It's 2017, and flying cars, teleportation and the holographic mail don't exist yet. And Mark Hamill isn't President of the United States.
** 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.

* MyHairCameOutGreen: Pepper Ann's hair turns green when she tries dyeing it ''blue''.

* ShoutOut: In "Career Daze", Nicky is put on wrapping meat on a conveyor belt - and it looks very much like the famous ''ILoveLucy'' scene with Lucy and Ethel trying to make chocolates at a factory.

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).
