1* AwardSnub: The show was nominated four times for awards, and ''all of them lost''.˛** The first was an Annie award in the category of outstanding music in an animated television program, for Lino Sound's score for ''The Off-Beats'' episode "Suave-o-Matic". (1998)˛** The second was another Annie award, same year. This time for Outstanding Male Voice Acting, for Nandor Nevai as various voices in ''Sniz & Fondue''.˛** The third was another Annie award in 1999, the category being Outstanding Acheivement in Production Design in an Animated TV Program. The ''Jetcat'' short "Scred Identity'' was a nominee.˛** The fourth time was for a Young Artists Award in 1999. Julia [=McIlvaine=] was nominated for Best Young Female Voiceover in an Animated Production, for doing the voice of June.˛* CultClassic: Sure it's no ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'', but it got screwed over just as badly and it has its share of fans (a lot of which are the ones who claim that Creator/{{Nickelodeon}}'s first wave of Nicktoons[[note]]''Doug'', ''Rugrats'' pre-Dil, ''Ren and Stimpy'' [John K. episodes only], etc[[/note]] were the best).˛* EnsembleDarkhorse: June and Henry, the hosts of the show, are this for the Nick fandom as a whole in a similar fashion to WesternAnimation/OswaldTheLuckyRabbit, they where long-forgotten for ''years'' up until recently with a strong fandom.˛* FanNickname: The generally-accepted episode titles are not official and taken from the [[NonIndicativeName usually-unrelated]] fake ads on the back of that episode's comic. Officially, each episode is just referred to by number. This has been such a common convention that the "Episode 29" [[UrbanLegendOfZelda urban legend]] persisted for years despite the actual episode with that number being a well-known one: "Your Logo Here".˛* GeniusBonus: [[ Mr. Stockdale]]. You may remember him better as [[ this]] or [[ this]].˛* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: The show is very popular in Latin America.˛** As well as the Netherlands. In the same way as most anime, everyone hated the dubbed version shown in syndication, so by the time Nicktoons picked it up, the episodes were subtitled, with the audio still in English.˛** ''Life with Loopy'' is the most popular short in Russia.˛* HarsherInHindsight: One episode featured Henry and June all set to [[MilestoneCelebration celebrate the show's 100th episode]], but it turns out that Henry miscounted, and that it's not the 100th episode after all. This amusing gag is made a bit sadder when you realize that the show never made it to a 100th episode, coming short of even the halfway point at 47 episodes.˛** In The Henry And June pilot, The first half (The duo starting their new show) has them nearly get cancelled in-universe while the second half (Henry and June going back to school hoping to get some recognition for their show), no one (besides creepy fanboy Ryan) watched their show's premiere the night before in-universe. Considering the fact that the Henry and June show lasted a single 2-episode half pilot before being not only cancelled but erased from the network's history as well anything having to do with ''Kablam!'' besides ''Action Leauge NOW!'', it makes the pilot strangely prophetic.˛* JerkassWoobie: The titular [[ Shizzagee]] is this when you think about it. He's extremely snarky and irritable but he's also the LastOfHisKind. ˛* SugarWiki/MostWonderfulSound: Whether she's speaking, singing or laughing, June's voice is this.˛* SpecialEffectFailure: ''Life with Loopy'' falls under this sometimes. However this was more often in the older episodes, and improves as the show goes on.˛** There's a scene in "Get Sam Donaldson's Mystery Bag!", where the duo are having a robot war...and one part shows that inside the robots, the duo are completely static. However this ''is'' justified, as flash animation wasn't very common yet.˛* {{Squick}}: Ryan the creepy fanboy asking for tongue scrapings and later blood samples from Henry and June for his collection in the second half of the Henry and June show pilot.˛* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: In one "Action League Now" short, the stock music piece "The Escape" by Dick Walter plays, which is a similar song to the theme of ''Film/TheGreatEscape''.˛* TastesLikeDiabetes: ''Life with Loopy''.....[[NightmareFuel at least for a minute]]˛* TearJerker: June missing Henry after his resign from the show. And many other moments due to nostalgia.˛* ToyShip: Henry and June. {{Justified|Trope}}, however, as it's quite obvious that they like each other.˛* UncannyValley: On some occasions. ˛** One example that comes to mind is the characters from the one-off CG short The Shizzagee. Especially the Shizzagee's owner.˛** ''Garbage Boy''. DEAR GOD.˛** ''Angela Anaconda''. Believe it or not, the [[WesternAnimation/AngelaAnaconda spinoff]] actually had ''more'' effort put into it.˛* UrbanLegendOfZelda: Subject of a stunningly large number of them, not least of which are that [[MissingEpisode Henry and June kiss in a lost episode 19]] and [[ScrewedByTheNetwork Nickelodeon junked two seasons worth of unaired material.]] ˛* ViewerGenderConfusion: Many fans were shocked when they found out that June was a girl.˛* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: While it ''is'' for kids (never mind all the nightmare fuel and crap past the radar), it's for a somewhat (but not by much) older demographic than most of Nick's shows at the time.˛* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs: ''Life with Loopy'', depending on who you ask.˛** ''Lava'', full stop.˛** The early versions of the Henry and June shorts˛** ''The Adventures of Patch Head''.˛* TheWoobie: Henry.
