* BaseBreaker: Snap for a little bit, as some fans (and even non-fans) loved him, while the other half didn't (which tends to be common for the "comic relief" characters). The majority of the fans in recent years love him.

Added DiffLines:

** The fact that the complete series DVD is missing "The Smooch" due to [[ScrewedByTheLawyers music rights]]. Some fans are very upset about it, as it makes the set incomplete despite what the cover says, while other fans casually accept that it's missing (and realize Nickelodeon's most likely not going to reinstate the episode anytime soon), and are happy that the rest of the half-hour ("Power Play" and "All The Way To The Top") are at least included on the DVD (as the [=iTunes=], Amazon Instant Video, and Playstation Store collections don't include any part of the episode).

* CanonDiscontinuity: One of the two only Oh Yeah! shorts not to be shown on the show proper, "Chalk Rain". Also notable because it featured a fact about Chalkzone that never was mentioned again: the rain in Chalkzone is the chalk sidewalk drawing being washed away... [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment by the rain]]. Despite this, a clip of it still appears in the intro.

* ScrewedByTheNetwork:
** Not only was the series premiere delayed for years, the last 6 episodes didn't air until 2008... a whole 3 years after the beginning of the final season. Even more, 2 additional episodes were planned but never aired at all.
** The show originally aired at 8:30 PM on Friday nights (for new episodes- repeats would air throughout the entire week) during season one and got extremely high ratings (even being the seventh highest-rated animated show for the 6-11 demographic and the fourth highest rated Nicktoon in 2002). Despite that, it took over a year for season two to air (to the point where some viewers had begun to think Nick canceled it after six episodes), and Nickelodeon moved the timeslot to 9:30 PM. While this may have worked for ''Invader Zim'', which was aimed at an older audience, ''[=ChalkZone=]'' was aimed at a younger audience than ''Zim'', and 9:30 PM is usually around the time the target audience would be going to bed. It got worse when Nick gave up all the show's airtime to more popular fare like ''[=SpongeBob=]'', ''The Fairly [=OddParents=]'', and ''The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius'', leaving it with only its' 9:30 PM timeslot on Fridays and one timeslot on both Saturday (two if you count the show on Nick on CBS) and Sunday.

* NarmCharm: A lot of the music video segments could qualify. One example would have to be "Chunky", a rock song that features lyrics about...painting your room and going to the moon with chunky peanut butter. The lyrics in a lot of the songs are very goofy and cheesy, but the EarWorm quality mixed with Rudy, Penny, and Snap's voice actresses all being really good singers make them enjoyable for a number of fans.

** In the episode Snap Vs Boorat, the titular villain identifies Snap and Rudy not by sight, but by smell. Vinnie is also gifted with a good sense of smell as seen in Follow The Bouncing Bag. It is likely Boorat gets this ability from him. Which leads to the conlusion that Vinnie had apparently took the time to sniff Rudy and Snap, and passed on that information to Boorat during his creation.
