Added DiffLines:

* DrillSargentNasty: Eleanor Roosevelt, whose intention for the year is to make the students feel even more insecure about their body’s physique.


%% * ScrewySquirrel "WHY SKUNKYPOO WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY?!?!"


%% * ConspicuousCG: [[{{Invoked}} Used intentionally]] during an over-the-top in-show ad.


** Of course, PlayedForLaughs. The insignia of Clone High's rival school, [[PuttingOnTheReich Genetically Engineered Students High]] (GESH), is a parody of the Nazi insignia with a G in the place of the swastika. [[HilariousInHindsight Nowadays]] this symbol, thanks to imageboards, is more closely related with GrammarNazi...

* RefugeInAudacity: The segments of Plane Crazy with Principal Scudworth and Skunky-Poo, whose interactions are almost as violent as Itchy and Scratchy, and a fair bit more profane (Skunky-Poo's catchphrase is [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch "try and catch me, bitch!"]]).


The plot is pretty straightforward, being outlined at the beginning of every episode by the ExpositoryThemeTune. Way, way back in the [[TheEighties 1980s]], secret government employees dug up famous guys and ladies and made amusing genetic copies. Now the clones are sexy teens, [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment now]]. They're gonna make it if they try. Loving, learning, sharing, judging. Time to laugh and shiver and cry. [[EarWorm A time to watch Clone High]].

* BadMoodRetreat: Parodied in episode 2: after an emotional argument, Joan and Abe have a Sad-Times Montage, where they both end up walking to their "thinking docks" at the local pond, so they can stare into the water sadly. Then a different camera angle shows that their docks are right next to each other, five feet apart.

* ''JFK'', the cocky JerkJock who macks on all the hot clone girls at school, and has a skewed perspective of the original UsefulNotes/JohnFKennedy as a "macho, womanizing stud who conquered the MOON!" Made even more hilarious by the fact that his foster parents are a male gay couple. Almost never referred to by a name other than his initials.

Added DiffLines:

* BlendedFamilyDrama: Joan learns that her adopted grandfather has been dating the adoptive mother of her mortal nemesis Cleo, and then a storm destroys her house, forcing her and her grandfather to move in with Cleo and her mother. She's not thrilled about it, to say the least.


In 2016, shortly after the launch of MTV Classic, MTV finally began airing the complete series for the channels first few months.

Added DiffLines:

* UndiscriminatingAddict: Supposedly recovered drug addict Larry Hardcore boasts that when he was still in the throes of addiction, he would have smoked raisins if he thought they would get him high.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtStyleDissonance: It's rated TV-14 and has a fair amount of crass humor to match, despite looking more like a Cartoon Network show from the early 2000s.


* BolivianArmyEnding: [[spoiler: The (more or less, see CutShort) resolution of the series LoveTriangle, with Abe realizing he has feelings for Joan (and the other way around) [[spoiler:only to discover she and JFK in bed together, just as the freezer is turned on]].
