  • Development Hell: The series has been this. Six episodes were produced before being abruptly cancelled during production, with seven additional half hour scripts that have never been shown to the public. It doesn't help that Nickelodeon originally ordered 20 episodes.
  • God Never Said That: Several have claimed that A,y Winfrey said that there are seven ready to air episodes locked away at Nickelodeon, but she never said that; she did, however, say that there were seven scripts for episodes Nickelodeon never did anything with.

  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: The web animations used to come in available DVDs with many alternate versions and character commentaries. Since Making Fiends is licensed by Nickelodeon, the creators can't sell any of its merchandise, even what they made independently. All of the DVDs were uploaded by someone on YouTube at one time... but he has since deleted his account.
  • Pop Culture Urban Legends:
    • Charlotte's parents are dead, and Charlotte's grandmother lied to her about them being on the moon. It fits the grim theme of the show and it is implied in "Parents", but it's never been outright confirmed.
    • Several Season 2 episodes were produced that Nickelodeon refused to air for whatever reason. This one is very unlikely. There have been scripts for unproduced episodes, not actual finished episodes that were never released.
  • Production Posse: Peter Merryman, who is in this series, is the voice of Amy Winfrey's Big Bunny.
  • Saved from Development Hell: The show had been in the planning stages for years and there were promos made for it ages before it actually aired on TV, only for it to get a shaky under-promoted start and then tossed back into development hell.
  • Screwed by the Network: Despite very good critical praise, a decent-sized fanbase and being the highest-rated Nicktoon during its run, the TV version only lasted six episodes. Amy Winfrey said that scripts for seven more episodes were made, but nothing came out of them. What's stranger still is that despite being cancelled, Nicktoons still occasionally aired and marathoned the six episodes that were released.

  • Talking to Himself: The voice cast for the TV series consists of just nine people, including the director and the composer. Only three of these nine people voice regulars. The web version had even fewer voice actors. Seriously.
