** According to Luk Internacional's (who distributes the show and some other Nelvana shows in Spain) [[http://www.lukinternacional.com/es/catalogo/6-teen.html promo for the show]], it was supposed to air in Germany on KIKA.

** Also, rumor has it that there was supposedly going to be an episode (potentially an hour-long episode) where Jonesy finds the perfect job for himself in the mall and doesn't quit or get fired--and apparently, this supposed episode would've served as the series finale instead of ''Bye Bye, Nikki''.

** This might present a slight problem in determining the TimeSkip between the two series depending on how loosely or strictly the visual clues are interpreted; said ''TDRR'' character, [=MacArthur=], is a police cadet, meaning she'd be at least in her early-to-mid-20s, participating in a series set in the middle of TheNewTens (as evidenced by another character constantly taking selfies on her full-screened camera phone). For that to be the case, ''[=6teen=]'' would have to be set fairly early in the 2000s for [=MacArthur=]'s comment to make sense. It's possible, for instance, to imagine a Jen just hitting 15, a year or so before the events of ''[=6teen=]'', babysitting a six-year-old [=MacArthur=], who later grows up and applies to a police academy at, say, 20. As babysitters can start as young as 15 or even earlier, and aspiring cops can apply starting around college age (19-21), it's plausible for [=MacArthur=]'s experience with Jen to be set around, say, 2002, thus placing ''TDRR'' around 2016 at least (which shifts it into the future by only about a year).

** All the characters have cellphones, but they're flip phones.

** Texting is big, but social media is rarely referenced.
** Illegal copies of movies are shared by selling discs, not online.
** The characters only ever have a little trouble finding new jobs with almost no references, clearly pre-Great Recession when competition for jobs made it harder for high schoolers to find afterschool work in favor of unemployed adults.
