Trivia / My Life as a Teenage Robot

  • Cowboy BeBop at His Computer: Among people unfamiliar with which show was made by which channel, there seems to be a recurring belief that Cartoon Network created "My Life As A Teenage Robot" rather than Nickelodeon. This may be derived from confusion with CN's Robotboy, because Rob Renzetti was involved in many CN shows, or the artstyle.
  • Ink-Suit Actor: The ice cream man in the first episode is heavily modeled on creator Rob Renzetti.
  • The Other Darrin: In the episode "Around the World in 50 Pieces", Vexus is voiced by Cree Summer (who also voices Tiff). Eartha Kitt voices her in every episode before and after, so this was probably because they didn't want to contact her for such a brief speaking role.
    • There's also a few episodes where Summer voices Vexus, but only in teenage forms.
  • Rule 34 Creator Reactions: When there was a debate on Facebook over this fan-art of Jenny (SFW), Rob stepped in and offered his viewsnote , saying that while outright porn of his characters wasn't tolerable, simple "sexy" pinups were A-OK.
  • Screwed by the Network: Nickelodeon once ran a poll between this show and Invader Zim to determine what would be shown next. Despite My Life as a Teenage Robot having a clear lead, Nickelodeon declared Invader Zim the winner, even though both shows got screwed over by Nickelodeon, making the entire poll a farce.note 
    • The second season was delayed for many months. And after lack of adverts, the third season didn't air for years after the show was canceled.
  • What Could Have Been: Word of God states that if the series wasn't cancelled, Sheldon and Jenny would have been an Official Couple.
  • Word of God: It's probably a great comfort to many shippers that Rob Renzetti said in an interview that he and his team would've loved to see Sheldon and Jenny as a couple.
