YMMV: ChalkZone
  • Awesome Music: You wouldn't expect a show as cute as this to have such a badass opening theme.
  • Base Breaker: When concerning Snap, it all boils down to whether or not you like him.
  • Bizarro Episode: "The White Board Zone". It has a plot too screwed-up to explain but all we know is that in the end it was all just a dream.
  • Canon Discontinuity: The only Oh Yeah! short not to be shown on the show proper, "Chalk Rain". Also notable because it featured a fact about Chalkzone that never was mentioned again: the rain in Chalkzone is the chalk sidewalk drawing being washed away... by the rain.
    • Despite this, a clip of it still appears in the intro.
  • Ear Worm: The theme song, by far. To a lesser extent, the Accordion Worm song.
    • The 1-minute music video songs run a close second.
    • Skrawl's song. After two or three variations of it, it will never leave your head.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Skrawl.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: The show has a bit of a following in Japan.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Here, we have a property involving a person creating whatever he wants using a special writing utensil. ...wait, I'm thinking of something else, nevermind.
  • Misblamed: Fans of Invader Zim complained that this show replaced their favorite show. While in reality, ChalkZone was delayed for two years.
  • Moe: The main trio. Actually, the entire show is moe.
  • Tastes Like Diabetes: Couldn't be any more sugar-overloaded even if it tried.
  • Viewer Gender Confusion: Snap. The character is male, but the voice sounds fairly ambiguous to some people (being voiced by Candi Milo and all).
  • Vindicated by History: When it was still running, ChalkZone was despised by a lot of older Nickelodeon fans. These days, you will find much more fans than haters.
  • We're Still Relevant, Dammit: The show happened to be made about five years after everyone stopped using chalk for things like school boards, restaurants, and the many uses that seem to pop up in the show.
    • Due to hipster baristas, shop owners and street artists, Chalk seems to be making a comeback.
  • What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?: A show about the adventures of a child in a world made of chalk? ...yeaaaah.
