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.
Pepper Ann's looking for her dad's old letters to Lydia in the attic, and finds that they've all got lots of their content edited out (most of which verged on being risqué, and one of which was apparently so spicy that everything was cut except for "Dear Lydia" and "Love, Chuck"). PA calls to her mom downstairs and asks why the letters have parts cut out. We hear Lydia walking out the door and driving out.
The end of the first episode when Principal Hickey is still mad at Pepper Ann ruining the school's chances at winning the Perfect Yearbook Award. His line: Only 1,478 days until she [Pepper Ann] graduates. I think I'm going to be sick!"
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)
Just look at their hands and you can see the similarities.
Stop Helping Me!: Pepper Ann is chronically bad at helping people and giving advice. Lampshaded in "The Amazing Becky Little."
Milo: "How to put this... hmm... often-times when to attempt to help people they end up worse off than before you-"
