The show is rather unusual compared to other Creator/DisneyChannel {{Kid Com}}s. Unlike other shows on the channel, for the first time since ''Series\Jonas'' it is a single-camera sitcom with no LaughTrack. The set of the house is much messier than most other homes, and there is a substantial amount of GettingCrapPastTheRadar. It's also one of the few of their sitcoms ''not'' to be produced by It's A Laugh Productions.
