These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Pepper Ann
Cliché Storm: But was written well enough to get away with it.
Seinfeld Is Unfunny: While not the first (Doug arguably did it before), part of the clichés modern viewers would find were more because it's a late 90s - turn of the millennium show.
Crowning Moment Of Awesome: In "Crunch Pod," after Nicky tries her best to act as peacekeeper between Pepper Ann and Milo, during their final battle in the video arcade Nicky finally draws the line. She unplugs the machines and angrily calls the two out for being a couple of overgrown babies:
Nicky: You two are best friends, and you better start ACTING LIKE IT!
Pepper Ann and Milo then completely forget their rivalry out of concern for Nicky's behavior and take her out to help her calm down. It's at this point another moment of awesome occurs: the crowd turns on the arcade manager for how unsatisfying the match ended and demand their money back. This may seem like Disproportionate Retribution, but again, this guy pitted middle school students against each other in a petty grudge match and tried to make money off it.
Retroactive Recognition: A non-acting example: Tom Warbuton (who would later create Codename: Kids Next Door) was hired as a main character designer for this series. Watch a Pepper Ann episode (if you can find one) and a Kids Next Door episode (which are in plentiful supply) and you'll see the similarities, to the point that those who watch both shows would think that he made Pepper Ann, which he didn't.
Which leads to Hilarious in Hindsight as several Pepper Ann characters look like Codename: Kids Next Doorexpies (Tessa and Vanessa could easily pass these days as Numbuh 5, if she were a teenager — or her sister, Cree and Dieter looks like Numbuh 2 if he were fatter and from Germany)
