* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic[=/=]EarWorm: The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wvEilACTKog theme song]] is ''very'' catchy.
* BizarroEpisode: "[[FreakyFridayFlip Those Freaky McGuires]]" is this, especially for a show that's otherwise grounded in reality most of the time. The end hints that it might be AllJustADream. Subverted with the HalloweenEpisode as the supernatural stuff [[spoiler:is just a prank]].
* ContractualPurity: Not a straight example, but Lalaine (who played Miranda) was unfortunately caught in 2007 with possession of crystal meth. She got better though, and later had it removed from her permanent record after completing a drug treatment program.
* EpilepticTrees: There is a theory that is circulating around the Internet that Lizzie is a schizophrenic. It also partially explains why the show starts in middle school, and why Lizzie's friend Miranda disappeared from the show (even though the show states that she went to Mexico with her family). The theory can be [[http://www.reddit.com/r/FanTheories/comments/21d83c/lizzie_micguire_show_and_movie_lizzie_is/ read here]].
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Melina for being a LittleMissBadass and match for Matt's schemes.
* FanPreferredCouple: Doubles as ActorShipping. A lot of fans really wanted to see Lizzie stay together with Aaron Carter, who was briefly in a relationship with Hilary Duff at the time he guest starred. [[http://people.com/celebrity/aaron-carter-says-hilary-duff-is-the-love-of-his-life/ Aaron himself seconded this]].
* FoeYay: Some would argue, Kate and Lizzie.
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Gordo tells Lizzie that Larry is "Music/MarilynManson to your Music/BritneySpears". "Britney Spears" was synonymous with "wholesome" back then...yeah. Ironically, Manson would later become known as a very well-spoken and intelligent man beyond his on-screen antics.
* GeniusBonus: The names Isabella and Elizabeth (Lizzie's full first name) from the movie are in fact the same name; Isabella is the Romance variation and Elizabeth is the Germanic variation.
* HarsherInHindsight: In the episode where Gordo gets to go to high school and the girls miss him, Miranda reassures Lizzie "I'm not going anywhere". Lalaine rather infamously disappeared from the show before the finale, Miranda to never be seen again.
** David Carradine's character fading away towards the end of Between a Rock and a Hard Place became this after his death in 2009.
* HeartwarmingInHindsight: The episode that deals with Kate and Lizzie rediscovering their friendship when they have to work on a class project together. As of the events of the movie, Lizzie and Kate put aside their differences seemingly for good - and Kate is the one to help Lizzie [[spoiler: make a love connection with Gordo]].
* HilariousInHindsight:
** Ethan mentioned in one episode he'll take up water polo. Years later in real life, Clayton Snyder (his actor) ends up being part of the US water polo team.
** TheReveal and methods of the BigBad in TheMovie are quite similar to similar events in ''Disney/{{Frozen}}''.
** Miranda's suspiciously long [[PutOnABus bus trip]] with the knowledge that Lalaine was starring in ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' around the same time training as a Potential.
** In one episode, Lizzie says that she has [[Series/HannahMontana "the best of both worlds"]]
* {{Narm}}: Lizzie's nightmare where she frets about the guys thinking she's not feminine enough. Has to be one of the laziest nightmare scenes ever made, especially Kate's laughing.
* PeripheryDemographic: Not all of Lizzie's (or Hilary's) fans were/are girls. The fact that Miranda, Kate, Claire, Parker and numerous other girls were [[TestosteroneBrigade quite pretty]] probably helped too.
* RetroactiveRecognition: Sara Paxton in the episode "Election" as the resigning class president, always saying "really" as she announces the winner.
