* AllLoveIsUnrequited: Obviously a low-key example. Since it is a children's educational show centered around 3rd graders, it's not surprising that there's not much romance. At the least though, Carlos is obviously interested in Dorothy-Ann, who is too focused on her studies to care. Arnold has a crush on Wanda, who more or less just teases him, while Phoebe has an obvious crush on Arnold that he is [[ObliviousToLove oblivious to]]; meanwhile the quiet Tim seems to have an interest in Phoebe.
**If you really want to stretch things and bring it full circle, Wanda seems to like Carlos BadBoy attitude, Keesha is often impressed by Tim's ingenuity, Ralphie enjoys teasing Keesha and Ralphie and Dorothy-Ann bonded during the baseball episode. The chain therefore goes: Dorothy-Ann > Carlos > Wanda > Arnold > Phoebe > Tim > Keesha > Ralphie > Dorothy-Ann.

* AccidentalInnuendo: The episode covering plants features a scene where Wanda gets hit by "white stuff" ejected from a chloroplast that's "gooey and sticky"[[note]]it's sugar, thankfully[[/note]] and is subsequently grossed out by the fact that it lands in her mouth before she finds out that she likes it. Children's educational television!

* ValuesResonance: This show may have the single best depiction of diversity in any children's series, in that [[ShowDontTell it only]] ''[[ShowDontTell depicts]]'' [[ShowDontTell it, but rarely if ever addresses it]]: apart from the multi-ethnic class, we have two canonically handicapped characters with Carlos's paraplegic brother Mikey and Phoebe's blind father, but never uses them for PositiveDiscimination, treating everyone's differences as 100% normal.

* ThatOneLevel: The platforming minigames in the ''Explores the Solar System'' computer game all can be fairly difficult, but the [[SlippySlideyIceWorld Saturn]] level with Tim is generally agreed by people who have played the game to be the most frustrating one. The level takes place on tiny slick platforms in Saturn's rings that you will almost constantly be sliding off of into a level-wide BottomlessPit (causing you to start over) until you get a jetpack a few screens into the level. While the jetpack can keep you from falling into the bottomless pit, it also uses up air. Running out of air will also start you over, without the jetpack, meaning you have to navigate Saturn's icy platforms to get it all over again.

** The episode in the sound museum is also pretty creepy, with the class staying overnight in a vast and seemingly-abandoned building with some very surreal features and chasing after the sound of mysterious music that sounds rather creepy in its own right.
This list shows the last 10 events of 91. Show all.
