* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: "Goin' Hollywood" is considered by some to be an entire Big-Lipped Alligator ''Episode''. While the episode starts off with Corey, Raven, and Victor going to Hollywood after Corey nabs a bit part in the sitcom "Better Days", this only serves as a minor subplot alongside a bigger story involving the "Better Days" star Ally Parker (Alyson Stoner) trying to fit into public school for the first time. Since the episode focuses on an entirely new set of characters that have no connection with the show and never show up again afterwards, the whole story can come off as a jarring addition. This does have an explanation though: it was meant to be a test pilot for a planned Disney Channel sitcom starring Stoner, but since the show never came to be, the episode was left as TheArtifact.
* EarWorm: The theme song. Could also count as a CrowningMusicOfAwesome because as catchy as the song is, the theme also features the three lead actors singing it.
* FanPreferredCouple:
** The ship with the most fanworks is Raven/Chelsea. This carried over to ''Series/RavensHome'', where it became even ''more'' popular.
** ''That's So Raven'' has Devon and Raven as the OfficialCouple. The two even ended up married post-series, though they're divorced by the sequel. Despite this, fans tend to prefer shipping Raven with Eddie.
* {{Flanderization}}: While Chelsea got this the worst, the rest of the cast arguably had it too. Some of their traits (Cory being obsessed with money, Raven screaming when excited, Victor being a BumblingDad and Eddie being like an older version of Cory) were arguably exaggerated in the later episodes. Tanya pretty much managed to avoid this, although this might have partially been due to having been PutOnABus
* FunnyAneurysmMoment:
** One episode has a scene that is either this or HilariousInHindsight--Raven tries to wake Chelsea in [[LesYay an unintentionally suggestive manner]]. A boy that Raven has a crush on sees them, so she frantically tries to tell him that this is NotWhatItLooksLike. Raven-Symonè revealed herself as a lesbian many years later, so now this scene might come off as her feeling ashamed to make her preferences public while riding high off an acting comeback.
** Devon and Raven's relationship becomes this; with the spinoff ''Series/RavensHome''. On the show, they were the closet thing on an OfficialCouple, and it's revealed on the spinoff that their marriage didn't work out.
* HarsherInHindsight: The episode where Raven deals with racism becomes depressing when you hear Raven-Symone bluntly say in a future interview that she wouldn't hire a person with a "stereotypical black name". ''Ouch''.
* HilariousInHindsight: After Raven auditions for her school's play of ''Literature/TheWonderfulWizardOfOz'', she prepares a checked miniskirt to wear if she ends up playing Dorothy.[[note]]She instead lands the role of the Wicked Witch of the East.[[/note]] Years later, Creator/{{NBC}}'s production of ''Theatre/TheWiz'' would have their Dorothy wear a plaid miniskirt.
* HollywoodPudgy: Raven, particularly in the episode where she tries to be a model for her own fashion line.
* RetroactiveRecognition: Sam from the season one episode "A Dog by Any Other Name" is played by Mike Erwin, who would go on to voice the titular character in ''VideoGame/JakIIRenegade'' and become his official voice actor [[Franchise/JakAndDaxter in subsequent games]].
* SeasonalRot: Season 4 for some fans, mainly due to Raven's mom, Tanya, being PutOnABus.
* TheScrappy: Stanley to some fans, although others may argue that he was RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap after he stopped crushing on Raven at the end of Season 3.
* TearJerker:
** In "There Goes the Bride", Raven believing she's going to marry Devon Carter, [[DownerEnding only for it to turn out that he and his family are moving away after his dad and stepmom's wedding]].
** "True Colors" also does this, since it doesn't hide the ugly truth about discrimination. Worse is while the others discuss [[spoiler: Raven's vision of the store owner saying she doesn't hire black people]], Eddie recounts a story about how he was close friends with a white boy who's father forbade him from talking to Eddie due to him being black. When Raven asks what did he do, Eddie quietly says "What ''was'' I suppose to do? I was just a kid!".
*** The worst part is that Eddie [[TheWoobie never blamed his friend and still cared for him in the end]], and it seems likely that this feeling was mutual as the friend in question was, from the sounds of it, bullied and abused by his racist father and, like Eddie, felt unable to do anything about it because of his young age.
* [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter They Wasted Some Perfectly Good Characters]]: Other psychic teenagers Raven met throughout the series (specifically, the students of Dr. Sleevemore's Psychic Institution, and Chelsea's boyfriend from season 3) never made re-appearances.
** The worst case, however, would have to be Eddie's aforementioned friend who was forbidden by his racist, abusive father from talking to Eddie. It's implied that he and Eddie were as close as Raven and Chelsea and their forced separation is one of the most tearjerking moments of the series, even if told second hand. It would have been a true CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming to see him and Eddie try to reach out and find each other as young adults, and to know that the friend never stopped caring about Eddie, either.
