* NightmareFuel: According to a number of complaints filed by parents at the time the special was released, ''Lost in Paris'' was full of this to their children. It doesn't help that the movie features Madeline being lured from the old house to a sweatshop where she is forced to do labor.

** ''Madeline in Tahiti'' is available to buy on iTunes and Amazon and it can be watched on YouTube but it is not available in every country. It doesn't help that there isn't really much known about the movie.

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: ''My Fair Madeline'' isn't very well-liked among fans due to the main character getting stuck through the wringer for almost no reason whatsoever and the conflict relying on YouHaveToBelieveMe and the AdultsAreUseless tropes as very tiring. This movie is also blamed for possibly [[FranchiseKiller killing the franchise]].

* AdaptationDisplacement: There was a 1950's short, too. It's vaguely remembered, though it was put on the DVD release of the 1998 film.
** In the books and early specials, Madeline's parents are known to be alive, and even appeared in the Christmas special. The live-action film, in which she's an orphan, caused [=DiC=] to retcon her into an orphan, much to the confusion of many.
* AllAnimationIsDisney: DiC was with Disney at the time the series and ''Lost in Paris'' was created, which made many people believe that the ''Madeline'' TV series and first DirectToVideo movie were from Disney (It doesn't help that ''Lost in Paris'', at least the original 1999 release before it was rereleased on DVD by Shout! Factory, opens with the text "Disney Presents")
* EarWorm: [[IAmSong "I'm Madeline"]], "A Bad, Bad Hat", "Two Straight Lines", "Something is Not Right", "Have You Seen Our Dog?", "Home Is Where The Heart Is", and every other song.
** "Slovakio, Slovaki-ay, we're on a gyspy carvan!"
* HarsherInHindsight: Lost in Paris, a story about Madeline being forced to work in a sweatshop, becomes this after the 2007 abduction and [[NeverFoundTheBody possible murder]] of Madeleine [=McCann=].
* HilariousInHindsight: {{CINAR}} came up with the initial ideas for the specials and partnered with DiC to execute it. Then Cinar went their way when the partnership ended while DiC went on to make the the TV series and two specials. Almost two decades later, CINAR became Creator/CookieJar and subsequently bought DiC, and then merged.

* {{Narm}}: "Lord Cucuface, beware! Genevive, noblest dog in all of France, you shall have your [[PainfulRhyme ven-ge-ance]]!" For the record, that line did not appear in the TV special. The movie did include the second sentence, albeit with a normal pronunciation of "vengeance."
* NoExportForYou: The specials. They have never been broadcasted in a few countries worldwide compared with the rest of the series, and even in terms of DVD releases they have only been available as digital downloads on US-only online stores. Or, at least, that used to be true. As of 2015, they are all on DVD now.
* SpotlightStealingSquad: In the animated series Chloe, Nicole, and Danielle get more focus and dialogue than any of the other girls aside from Madeline herself.
