  • 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 Any Winfrey said that there are seven ready to air episodes locked away at Nick, but she never said that; she did, however, say that there were seven scripts for episodes Nick never did anything with.
  • 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, but Nickelodeon refuses to air them for whatever reason. This one is very unlikely. There are scripts for unproduced episodes, not actual finished episodes that haven't been 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 canceled for years, Nicktoons will still occasionally air and marathon 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.
