YMMV / Angela Anaconda

  • Acceptable Religious Targets: Played with. Josephine is a devout Christian who is portrayed sympathetically, but the humor comes from the moments of her more extreme (and bizarre) religious expressions.
  • Bile Fascination: At least among those who are turned off by either its cast or its bizarre animation.
  • Cliché Storm
  • Designated Heroine: Angela Anaconda can come off as this in her Imagine Spots, where she fantasizes harming or even murdering Nanette and sometimes Mrs. Brinks.
  • Designated Villain: Mrs. Brinks has shades of this. She is treated like a Sadist Teacher for constantly disciplining Angela Anaconda and often favoring Nanette Manoir over her. The title character is not exactly a model student, though, so Mrs. Brinks is really just doing her job as an educator, not to mention she has occasionally disciplined Nanette.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: The town is named "Tapwater Springs." A report years after the show ended revealed that much of what's bottled and marketed as "spring water" is really just ordinary (though perhaps filtered) tapwater.
  • Love It or Hate It: As mentioned on the main page, the show is a very hit-or-miss one.
  • Mis-blamed: For a while, it was very common for people to believe that the show being owned by DHX Media was what prevented Nicktoons from airing the two KaBlam! episodes with the original Angela Anaconda shorts in reruns. This was debunked in the early 2010s when the creator of another KaBlam! short revealed on a (now defunct) fansite that Viacom still owns the two original shorts, just nothing else. The episodes continued to air in reruns on Nickelodeon even after the short was spun-off on Fox Family.
  • Most Annoying Sound: Some fans aren't exactly too thrilled listening to Angela's voice.
  • Nightmare Fuel: You'll either love this show's cutout-style animation for being unique, or be downright horrified by it for its unnatural look and movements.
    • The two original shorts that aired as part of Kablam make the series look adorable by comparison.
  • The Scrappy: A rare invoked example. Nanette Manoir, Karlean, and January. Although Karlean seems to be treated as the least of three evils as unlike January, she actually got some character development.
    • Angela herself for some viewers, due to her voice.
  • Uncanny Valley: Often times, it looks a bit weird because of the Clip-Art Animation.
  • The Woobie: Josephine can go into this given what she goes through.
