YMMV / Pepper Ann

  • Cliché Storm: But was written well enough to get away with it. While not the first slice-of-life cartoon out there (that would arguably be Doug), part of the clichés modern viewers would find were more because it's a late 90s - turn of the millennium show.
  • Earworm:
    • "Who's that girl? What's her name? Is she cool? Is she lame? (Oh, you're talking about whatshername...) PEPPER ANN!"
    • Any of the songs from the episode "You Oughta Be in Musicals!"
  • Girl-Show Ghetto: Managed to break out of it.
  • Heartwarming Moments: The series finale.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: In the episode "Old Best Friend", Pepper's friend Brenda claims that she doesn't like books because she thinks they're boring. Who voiced her, you ask? Tara Strong, who would later voice a character who can barely go ten minutes without reading one.
  • Most Wonderful Sound: Pepper Ann, she's like one in a millYAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!
  • Nausea Fuel: Pink Eye Pete.
  • Retroactive Recognition: A non-acting example: Tom Warburton (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.
  • Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: Moose commenting on how you shouldn't pigeon-hole boys or girls into liking something just because of their gender in "Miss Moose".
  • Viewer Gender Confusion: Lots of viewers thought Moose was a boy, even though Moose was referred to as "she" and by her real name "Margaret Rose" multiple times throughout the series, and there was a whole episode focused around P.A. trying to make Moose more girly. This confusion sometimes happens in-universe too: one time Principal Hickey couldn't tell if she was P.A.'s sister or brother, so he just called her "your Moose."
