* 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.
* BadExportForYou: The movie was originally aired in widescreen and later cropped for fullscreen. The DVD uses the fullscreen version.
* CompletelyDifferentTitle: In France, it was titled "Cool Attitude".
* 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 the [[ClicheStorm notorious]] short-lived series ''WesternAnimation/DaBoomCrew'' and [[CreatorKiller that was the last anyone heard of them]].
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: TheMovie is only available on DVD, and while the first season of the series is available on iTunes, Creator/{{Disney}} has no plans for any other releases.
** Even moreso is the original pilot. It was rarely shown and it is very hard to find images of it online.
* 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.
** MarthDebutedInSmashBros: The series never aired in Russia either, but the movie did... over 10 years after it originally aired in the US.
* 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''.
* TruthInTelevision: The episode that featured the {{Expy}} of ''Series/AmericanIdol'' had Wizard Kelly grossly cheat the voting so a pretty and more marketable winner would be crowned over the more talented but homely actual winner. This really does happen, producers of competition shows generally have a clause that allows them an incredible amount of voting power (sometimes over 50% compared to judges or call-in votes) in case they prefer a contestant over another (''Series/LastComicStanding'' for instance, is a rather infamous example of this).
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The show was initially pitched to Creator/{{Nickelodeon}}.
** In the original pilot, Dijonay's name was "Delinquinetta".
* WriteWhatYouKnow: Creator Bruce W. Smith based Oscar and Penny on his own experiences as a father.
