YMMV / Liberty's Kids

  • Adorkable: Several of the characters, especially anyone under 20. James and Udney both have several moments of this.
    • Of the historical characters, Lafayette displays this the most. He fanboys over Washington and is always ridiculously optimistic, even after getting shot.
  • Awesome Music: The opening theme.
    • Any of the show's music cues.
  • Ear Worm: The opening theme. (I see a land with liberty for all...)
  • Fan Disservice: Ben Franklin taking a bath in one episode.
  • Foe Yay: You could say this is how James and Sarah started out.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: Henri's dream comes true as he gets to go back to France to live with his idol—only to have the French Revolution break out and said idol thrown into prison less than a decade later.
  • Memetic Mutation: Averted for the most part in the show itself; played straight on the "commercial break" segments.
    • "Let's play a round of Continental Cartoons!"
    • "Time for Now & Then—-comparing life to the 18th and 21st centuries!"
  • Narm: Aaron Carter's rapping in the theme song. Also the "ooh-yee-aah".
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: The reaction of some fans when the series aired on WB, in which various segments from the PBS airings were cut out.
  • Toy Ship: James and Sarah.
    • When they can use being engaged as a cover story to get out of trouble, it is past the toy age.
  • The Woobie: James, Henri, and Moses when they explain their pasts.
    • Sarah when her cousin dies. And Tom himself at the moment.
    • Everyone in this series gets Woobified at one point or another. Especially the historical characters.
      • Oddly enough, Lafayette escapes this, as nothing about his backstory is brought up. His father was killed in the French and Indian war when Laf was a baby, his mother died when he was 12 (which is one reason he bonded with fellow orphan immigrant Alexander Hamilton), and he never met one of his daughters, as she had not been born when he left France and died in infancy well before he could get back. Additionally, one of his best friends is killed in action the year after Yorktown while working on an anti-slavery project, and Lafayette himself eventually ends up getting driven out of France by the very people he tries to help, and spends seven years in prison in Austria. Yet the most trouble we hear about or see is his getting shot in the leg during his first battle.
