* ActorAllusion: One episode has Penny communicating with a tiger similar to ''Film/DrDolittle''. Her voice actress Creator/KylaPratt played the daughter of the famous doctor in the modern film version, who also inherited his gift in a later sequel.
* CompletelyDifferentTitle: In France, it was titled "Cool Attitude".
* DigitalDestruction: The movie was originally aired in widescreen and later cropped for fullscreen. The DVD uses the fullscreen version.
* HeAlsoDid:
** A decade before the show debuted, Bruce W. Smith was the director and production designer for ''WesternAnimation/BebesKids'', notable for being one of only two animated features to star a predominantly black cast (he'd later animate for [[Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog the other one]]).
** After this show ended, Bruce Smith and his production studio, Jambalaya, moved onto Warner Bros. to make ''WesternAnimation/DaBoomCrew''. Unfortunately, the company [[ToughActToFollow couldn't keep up the momentum after the previous show]] - not helped that ''Boom'' was a ClicheStorm - [[CreatorKiller they promptly sank]].
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: TheMovie was only available on DVD and only some of the first season was available on iTunes. However, in July 2017, 51 out of the 52 episodes that aired on TV were made available for streaming on Watch Disney Channel and for purchase on places like iTunes.
* MarthDebutedInSmashBros: The series never aired in Russia, but the movie did... over 10 years after it originally aired in the US.
* MissingEpisode:
** The episode "Don't Leave Home Without It" is the only one from the show's original run that Disney has not released in any form. This likely has to do with licensing issues involving the Music/DestinysChild song "Independant Woman," which is odd since they sung the theme song.
** The original pilot. It was rarely shown and it is very hard to find images of it online. The only clips of it available online come from commercials that aired around the show's debut.
* NoExportForYou: The show hasn't aired in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Japan, Poland and Turkey, despite the crossover episode with ''WesternAnimation/LiloAndStitchTheSeries'' having aired in those territories.
* TheOtherDarrin: In the series, Bobby Proud was voiced by Cedric the Entertainer while in the movie he was replaced by Arsenio Hall (who also voices Dr. Carver) for unknown reasons.
* PlayingAgainstType: Paula Jai Parker plays the [[OnlySaneWoman responsible, caring mother]] Trudy Proud, which is a far cry from the more trashy characters she played in ''Film/{{Friday}}'', ''Film/HustleAndFlow'', and ''Film/MyBabysDaddy''.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** The show was initially pitched to Creator/{{Nickelodeon}}.
** The unaired 1999 pilot meant for Nickelodeon featured numerous differences. Most were design related however Dijonay's was originally "Delinquinetta''.
* TheWikiRule: Has a wiki [[http://theproudfamily.wikia.com/wiki/The_Proud_Family_Wiki here.]]
