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 anyone who dares does something she doesn't approve of, especially Nanette and Mrs. Brinks.
  • Designated Villain: Mrs. Brinks can be viewed this way. She is treated like a Sadist Teacher for constantly disciplining Angela Anaconda and often favoring Nanette Manoir. The title character is not exactly a model student, though, so Mrs. Brinks is really just doing her job as an educator.
  • 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.
  • Hype Backlash: Was quite popular when it first came out but isn't that fondly remembered these days.
  • Les Yay: Nanette and Angela's interactions can somewhat lead to this, especially the Imagine Spot in "Stuck on You". Even some of the fanbase shares this view.
  • 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. The theme song makes this worse, however.
  • 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. The theme song doesn't make it any better.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: Many people actually like the idea of the clip-art scrapbook style, but often consider that the plotlines of episodes are often too bland or over-the-top, while other people think that they are excuses for Angela to have more fuel for her Nanette (and Mrs. Brinks) hatred.
  • Uncanny Valley: Due to the Clip-Art Animation, the show can be seen as unsettling due to the model's faces staring into the camera at times.
  • The Woobie: Josephine can go into this given what she goes through.
    • Karlean in "Kar-lean on Me".
