* UnfortunateImplications: Given that Blyton is often accused of being well to the Right politically, it's almost alarming that the Secret Seven paint the initials of their group on the door of their clubhouse.

** Even more notable with ''Malory Towers''. The German Version is called ''Dolly'' and spans 18(!) books. After the end of the original Series, Darrell - called Dolly in the German Version - attends a school for young ladies located directly next to Malory Towers, marries a teacher after graduating, becomes a caretaker at her old school and gives birth to a little girl. Oh - and helps pupils in misery on a daily basis.

* BeamMeUpScotty: Nobody actually says "Lashings of ginger beer".
** The hilariously not-childsafe parody ''Five Go Mad in Dorset'' corrects this oversight.

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: St Clare's, called "Hanni and Nanni" in Germany, is vastly more popular there. There are several dozen ghostwritten sequels and interquels that fill in the gaps in Blyton's original stories, as she had only covered a few terms.

There are also three movies, starring real life twins Jana and Sophia Münster.

* OnceAcceptableTargets - There remains a controversy over the use of golliwogs in the ''Noddy'' series (in more recent TV adaptations, these are usually replaced with generic goblin-type creatures). However, Blyton fans have argued that this was just a cultural thing, given that Blyton's books also contain plenty of positive portrayals of black people (e.g. ''Five Go To Smuggler's Top'' and the ''Mystery'' series).

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff - St Clare's, called "Hanni and Nanni" in Germany, is vastly more popular there. There are several dozen ghostwritten sequels, and two books of the original series were never published there since it meant the series would end.
** Actually all six books were published in Germany. The last two books just were published as Volume 11 and 13 respectively.
