Screwed by the Network: Detention is easily one of the shortest-lived shows to ever come out of Kids' WB, only lasting 13 episodes. According to Bob Doucette in an interview, the show wasn't what the network wanted even though it was one of the highest-rated shows on the block (it even rivaled Pokémon, which was basically the block's Cash Cow Franchise); he also had a rough time with the executives at Warner Bros. as they had unhealthy relationships with Detention's staff team. The show ended up with a death slot of 11:30am in March 2000, and during August in the same year, it ended up being pushed to Kids' WB's afternoon block, where it only aired on Fridays. Although reruns lasted until August 31, 2001, the entirety of the series wasn't seen again for several years, with only three episodes being available on YouTube until 2018, when Warner Bros. officially released the complete series, as seen above.
Sailor Moon was the show that took its time slot in September 2001, but ironically enough, it only lasted a week.
Word of God: Bob Doucette admits that Duncan Bubble was based on someone he knew and claims that Duncan doesn't speak because he's supposed to represent handicapped kids without making it an obvious choice.He also claims that Kisskillya is actually well meaning despite her antagonism with the other students.
Unintentional Period Piece: The opening scene is as much a "Mister Sandman" Sequence for 2011 as the actual "Mister Sandman" Sequence that we get for 1992, while the rest of the film is filled with gags about Torture Porn films, fad diets, '90s nostalgia, and the culture clash between the teens of the early '90s and the early '10s.
