* ClicheStorm: But was written well enough to get away with it.
** SeinfeldIsUnfunny: While not the first (''WesternAnimation/{{Doug}}'' arguably did it before), part of the clichés modern viewers would find were more because it's a late 90s - turn of the millennium show.
* {{Earworm}}:
** "Who's that girl? What's her name? Is she cool? Is she lame? Oh, you're talking about... What's her name? PEPPER ANN!"
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-keFuarj94c I SAID-UH PEPPER PEPPER PO PIDDLY YEPPER!]]
** Any of the songs from the episode "You Oughta Be in Musicals!"
* GirlShowGhetto: Managed to break out of it
* NauseaFuel: Pink Eye Pete.
* NeedsMoreLove: Considered to be one of the best cartoons of the mid-to-late 90's, but never really hit it big. Its fanbase formed pretty much after the show ended.
* OvershadowedByAwesome: The series was really good, but it was also overshadowed by the Disney incarnation of ''Doug'' (which most fans of the Nickelodeon version despised) and ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'' (a CultClassic SleeperHit).
* RetroactiveRecognition: A non-acting example: Tom Warbuton (who would later create ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'') was hired as a main character designer for this series. Watch a ''Pepper Ann'' episode (if you can find one) and a ''Kids Next Door'' episode (which are in plentiful supply) and you'll see the similarities, to the point that those who watch both shows would think that he made Pepper Ann, which he didn't.
** Which leads to HilariousInHindsight as several Pepper Ann characters look like WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor {{expies}} (Tessa and Vanessa could easily pass these days as Numbuh 5, if she were a teenager -- or her sister, Cree and Dieter looks like Numbuh 2 if he were fatter and from Germany)
* XMeetsY: ''WesternAnimation/{{Doug}}'' meets a more upbeat ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}''
