* AcceptableTargets: They can't seem to go several episodes without making a jab at ''Series/BeverlyHills90210''.
* AudienceAlienatingPremise: The show provided a ''very'' unique combination of DomCom and SketchComedy, with [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar humor that]] [[TakeThat makes the show]] [[BlackComedy look like it]] [[BitingTheHandHumor got lost]] [[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids on its]] [[CrossesTheLineTwice way to]] Creator/{{MTV}}, and [[NoFourthWall rapid fourth-wall breaking]], almost dipping its way into BornInTheTheater. Perhaps it was a bit ''too'' unconventional compared to [[Series/ClarissaExplainsItAll some of]] [[Series/HeyDude the]] [[Series/DoubleDare1986 other shows]] Creator/{{Nick|elodeon}} [[Series/TheAdventuresOfPeteAndPete had at]] [[Series/SaluteYourShorts the time]], and the show never truly caught on.
* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2A3rvr7ubMk This video compiles a few fan-favorites.]]
* BaseBreaker: Okay, there's not much of a base to break about it, but Dominic Lucero and Crystal Lewis' departures from the show qualifies, as well as the latter seasons, which tend to have a different feel from the first season.[[note]]this factor could also be because the show moved production from [[Ride/UniversalStudios the Florida Nickelodeon Studios]] to the Creator/{{CBS}} Studio Center in Hollywood.[[/note]]
* CriticalDissonance: The show won no less than ''four'' different awards during its time (including an Ollie Award for "Excellence In Television Programming For America's Children") but never managed to find an audience. This is sad, since (despite what WebOriginal/TheNostalgiaCritic says) many of the show's jokes and sketches were actually pretty funny, and you could tell that the cast had a lot of fun doing the series (not to mention that the show had many fantastic original songs, two of which also won awards for Best Song).
* CultClassic
* EarWorm: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mTxqN-a0ges The theme song]]: ''Whenever my life gets me so down...'' as well as a number of other songs on the show.
** ''Round and round and round and round...''
** "Sex Education", "TV Head" and "Be A Rebel" are probably the definitive {{Ear Worm}}s of season 1.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5yc1k7byk_E Be Popular]] as well.
** The vocal bumpers can elicit this reaction as well: "U.B. The Judge", "I'll Be On Your Mind", "Work It Out" and "Nobody Like You" are the standouts.
** Season 4's "What Took You So Long", especially towards the end when the verse is sung in a round.
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: The new baby episode had a brief ''Series/EntertainmentTonight'' parody that noted that Creator/DickClark was turning 105 (and Music/{{Madonna}} was old enough to know better). Sadly, Clark died at 83, in 2012.
** The natural disasters episode counts as well, since it was aired mere months the Northridge earthquake happened[[note]]this was the season premiere (the LiveEpisode notwithstanding); the brief reference to the L.A. quake during ''Series/TheHollywoodSquares'' parody was presumably added as an afterthought[[/note]]. The plot involves the dad moving his family to California, only for everyone to endure an earthquake (among other things). Of course, this also makes the song "Sunrise" HeartwarmingInHindsight; it starts with the lyric "Something in the whisper of the wind is telling me that somehow / there's a way that we can start again".
** In the ChristmasEpisode, the dad is visited by the "Ghosts of Christmas Specials", who are represented by NoCelebritiesWereHarmed versions of three celebrities: Creator/BillCosby (Alfred), Creator/PatrickSwayze (Munoz) and Music/VanillaIce (Mark), the joke being that none of them are dead yet (though Cosby's film ''Film/GhostDad'' died at the box office and Ice's career was DeaderThanDisco), and Swayze points out that he was in the movie ''Film/{{Ghost}}'', so that's good enough. The real Swayze would die in 2009, while Cosby and Ice are still very much alive as of this writing (though Cosby's career is pretty much dead in light of several abuse allegations in late 2014).
* HilariousInHindsight: As mentioned on the Funny page, the potshot at the movie version of ''Film/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''.
** From the same episode, the ParodyCommercial for "Barbo", a Barbie doll that also functioned as a toy gun when its head was taken off, designed to eliminate the stigma associated with boy and girl toys as well as allow for boys to explore their [[RealMenWearPink sensitive side]]. In the present day, both factors are being taken care of with toys like ''Goldie Blox'' (a Website/{{Kickstarter}}-funded toy line with the goal of inspiring more girls to become engineers), and the PeripheryDemographic for ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' respectively.
** The technology episode had another parody commercial for "Poot Mute", a device that camouflages the sound of farting with sounds like nature and Pavarotti. Fast forward to 2014, and [[http://hot975online.com/buy-underwear-that-turns-fart-smell-to-mint-link/ there now exists an underwear patch that makes farts smell like mint]].
** In the first time travel episode, the Anykids run into "Nostradumbus", whom Natasha thinks ''might'' be one of the guys from Music/ZZTop. Nostradumbus then makes a prediction about [[UsefulNotes/RonaldReagan a redheaded actor who will become President]], "and his name is Ronald... UsefulNotes/{{McDonald|s}}!" 20 years later, at the 2014 UsefulNotes/MacysThanksgivingDayParade, they had a segment with [[Series/{{Today}} Al Roker]] interviewing handlers for the Ronald [=McDonald=] balloon. The first handler he comes across is a man with a rather large beard... and Al addresses him as "one of the guys from ZZ Top".
** Speaking of ''Series/{{Today}}'', back in 1983 that show's (now semi-retired) weatherman Willard Scott once did a spectacular Carmen Miranda impression on-air, complete with PimpedOutDress. In season 4 of ''Roundhouse'', Carmen Miranda and Willard Scott were spoofed in two consecutive episodes. "Objection" features a quick MirandaRights gag involving Lisa Vale doing an impression of the actress while reading said rights. While in the episode "Claptrap", David Sidoni briefly appears as "Willard Snot" giving a weather report (true to the episode's themes, the bit involves opening an umbrella indoors), complete with birthday greeting to a 105-year-old.
** One of the spoof skits in the talent show episode is ''Lame'', a parody of ''Film/{{Fame}}'' which features Amy as "School of Pathetic Arts" alumni [[Music/FleetwoodMac Stevie Nicks]]. As fate would have it, Amy would go on to play Grace "Lambchops" Lamb in a production of ''Fame'', TheMusical.
* JustHereForGodzilla: Plenty of people who watch the episodes on YouTube nowadays usually watch it for either the ''Film/{{Newsies}}'' cast members or Crystal Lewis.
* {{Moe}}: Castmembers Lisa Vale and Julene Renee fit this trope.
* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: Subverted. Much of the parodies make it a time capsule of the early 90's; however [[ParentalBonus a lot of older stuff is also parodied]], such as Music/LawrenceWelk, Creator/JerryLewis, ''Series/TheBradyBunch'', ''Anime/SpeedRacer'' and ''Series/LeaveItToBeaver''.
* VindicatedByHistory: Though not ''quite'' in this league yet, the show was rediscovered in the wake of Website/YouTube and is now considered one of the most underrated Nick shows ever made.
* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: You know ''Roundhouse'' is a Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} show in a whole other league when they have [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=amIV4C6vw0g a song about sex education]] in the ''fourth episode''. Add to that the surprisingly deep lyrics, mild swearing ("hell" and "crap" show up a few times, mostly during the first two seasons) and [[ParentalBonus references that will go over the target audience's heads]].
** Season 3's episode on intolerance had a skit called "Race Krispies", where one of the guys said "Hey four-eyes, [[FlippingTheBird guess how many fingers I'm holding up?]]" (Granted, [[ThinkOfTheCensors he obscured it with a piece of cardboard]], but still.)
** And then there's the Umbilical Cord Bungee Jump...
