* AccidentalInnuendo: The episode covering plants features a scene where Wanda gets hit by "white stuff" ejected from a chloroplast that's "gooey and sticky"[[note]]it's sugar, thankfully[[/note]] and is subsequently grossed out by the fact that it lands in her mouth before she finds out that she likes the way it tastes. Children's educational television, everybody!

The similar hair, Ms. Frizzle's absolute unflappability...unflappability, her fondness for pickles... [[labelnote:Pickles?]]Spironolactone, an androgen blocker commonly taken by trans women in the US, is also a potassium-sparing diuretic, resulting in increased thirst and cravings for salt. Pickles solve both of these problems, and have become a meme in trans communities as a result.[[/labelnote]]

** Series director Yvette Kaplin would later become a regular collaborator with Creator/MikeJudge, directing episodes of ''WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButtHead'' (including co-directing [[WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButtHead the movie]]) and ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill''. She didn't leave children's animation altogether, of course, as she later co-created ''WesternAnimation/ZackAndQuack'' for Creator/NickJr.

%%* AllLoveIsUnrequited: Obviously a low-key example. Since it is a children's educational show centered around 3rd graders, it's not surprising that there's not much romance. At the least though, Carlos is obviously interested in Dorothy-Ann, who is too focused on her studies to care. Arnold has a crush on Wanda, who more or less just teases him, while Phoebe has an obvious crush on Arnold that he is [[ObliviousToLove oblivious to]]; meanwhile the quiet Tim seems to have an interest in Phoebe.
%%** If you really want to stretch things and bring it full circle, Wanda seems to like Carlos Bad Boy attitude, Keesha is often impressed by Tim's ingenuity, Ralphie enjoys teasing Keesha and Ralphie and Dorothy-Ann bonded during the baseball episode. The chain therefore goes: Dorothy-Ann > Carlos > Wanda > Arnold > Phoebe > Tim > Keesha > Ralphie > Dorothy-Ann.

* PeripheryDemographic: The series has gained a large amount of older fans, many of whom grew up with it. It helps that both the facts (for the most part) are still relevant and the characters are interesting. Older fans have been known to revisit the show because of how much they forgot that they had learned in elementary.

*** Speaking of VideoGame/ResidentEvil2, the tow truck driver in one episode is voiced by Gary Krawford, who would later voice [[DirtyCop Chief Irons]].
