* 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.
* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: In "Crunch Pod," after Nicky tries her best to act as peacekeeper between Pepper Ann and Milo, during their final battle in the video arcade Nicky finally draws the line. She unplugs the machines and angrily calls the two out for being a couple of overgrown babies:
-->'''Nicky''': You two are best friends, and you better start '''ACTING LIKE IT!'''
** Pepper Ann and Milo then completely forget their rivalry out of concern for Nicky's behavior and take her out to help her calm down. It's at this point another moment of awesome occurs: the crowd turns on the arcade manager for how unsatisfying the match ended and demand their money back. This may seem like DisproportionateRetribution, but again, this guy pitted middle school students against each other in a petty grudge match and tried to make money off it.
* {{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.
* HilariousInHindsight: In the episode "Old Best Friend", Pepper's friend Brenda claims that she doesn't like books because she thinks their boring. Who voiced her, you ask? Creator/TaraStrong, who would later voice [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic a purple unicorn who can barely go ten minutes without reading one.]]
* NauseaFuel: Pink Eye Pete.
* 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}}''.
