* AdoredByTheNetwork: It was a matter of time, after obsessively rerunning ''{{Zoey 101}}'' and ''DrakeAndJosh'', it was inevitable ''Ned's'' would become TeenNick's new favorite show to rerun. Wouldn't you know it? TeenNick now is obsessed with running this show. It's the first thing they show in the morning as people wake up and the last thing they show before the nightly ''Series/{{Degrassi}}'' reruns and is shown in hour-long blocks at least twice in the afternoon hours.
* DawsonCasting: The characters are supposed to be 13 (7th grade) and for the most part they aimed to get actors in the realm of 12-15 to play those kids (at the start Devon Werkheiser was 13, Lindsay Shaw was 15). But the series progressed [[WebComicTime slower than real life]] and the actors ended up pushing 17-18 when they were supposed to still be 14.

* LifeImitatesArt: Cookie's glasses are eerily similar to Google Glass, featuring computing technology and a fully functional web browser five years before Google would bring the idea to the real world.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Before the High School idea, there were some pilots shot, where Cookie was a lot taller, and Moze had some differences in personality.
