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.
  • Earworm:
    • "Who's that girl? What's her name? Is she cool? Is she lame? Oh, you're talking about... What's her name? PEPPER ANN!"
    • I SAID-UH PEPPER PEPPER PO PIDDLY YEPPER!
    • Any of the songs from the episode "You Oughta Be in Musicals!"
  • Girl Show Ghetto: Managed to break out of it.
  • 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 purple unicorn who can barely go ten minutes without reading one.
  • Nausea Fuel: Pink Eye Pete.
  • 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 Door expies (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)
  • Technology Marches On: It's a show from the 1990's, what'd you except?
    • "Reality Bytes" is full of this. Dial-up internet, chatrooms, pop-ups and newsgroups galore!
  • Viewer Gender Confusion: Lots of viewers thought Moose was a boy, even though Moose was referred to as "she" multiple times throughout the series, and there was a whole episode focused around P.A. trying to make Moose more girly.
  • X Meets Y: Doug meets a more upbeat Daria.
