* DidntThinkThisThrough: In "Future Zone", Rudy sees that every time a new Craniac model comes along, it gets cryogenically frozen as an obsolete model on display, while the new guy takes charge of the old Craniac's facilities. To foil Craniac 3's plot to steal Rudy's magic chalk, he simply draws a Craniac 4. The new robot promptly freezes Craniac 3... then ''it'' wants to steal the chalk. Yeah, Rudy actually made a new villain even ''[[NiceJobBreakingItHero smarter]]'' than the previous one.

** In one episode, Rudy thought of hiding his fatherís birthday present, which was an automated vacuum cleaner in Chalk Zone. Considering how vacuum absorbs any type of dust, this idea goes as well as you would expect.

* HoaxHogan: While the name may speak of someone else, Thor Throat had all the mannerisms and personality quirks of Hulk Hogan's heel persona. His Chalk Zoner doppleganger turned the bombastic personality up even more so, but embodied the more heroic aspects of the Hogan character as a face. Two for the price of one!

Added DiffLines:

* TemporaryBulkChange: Goes hand in hand with chalkzone being a cartoon. The amount of times Snap has stuffed himself and become rotund has even landed ''[=Chalkzone=]'' a page on The Big Cartoon Wiki.

Added DiffLines:

The show centers on a shy, daydreaming kid by the name of Rudy Tabootie, who one day finds [[MacGuffin a piece of magic chalk]] and accidentally discovers a world hidden beyond his teacher's chalkboard as a result. In this world, [=ChalkZone=], chalk drawings that have been erased from all chalkboards live together as now sentient beings; among them is an early creation of Rudy's, a KidHero named Snap.

''[=ChalkZone=]'' (2002-2008) is a {{Creator/Nickelodeon}} cartoon that, like fellow Nicktoon ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents'', began as a series of shorts on ''WesternAnimation/OhYeahCartoons''. Despite similarities with an former Pinwheel (now Nickelodeon) cartoon with the same premise, ''Simon in the Land of Chalk Drawings'', creator Bill Burnett has confirmed that ''[=ChalkZone=]'' is not an considerable {{spiritual successor}}.
