    Pepper Ann was an animated series created by Sue Rose and shown in the United States on ABC. It debuted in September 1997.

    Pepper Ann starred cartoon adolescents and charted their ups and downs at Hazelnut Middle School. It aired as part of Disney’s "One Saturday Morning" block, but Pepper Ann was very different from competing Disney star, Doug. Unlike her laid-back male counterpart, Pepper Ann was outgoing, headstrong, and a true free spirit. The twelve-year-old redhead knew what she wanted and went after it, cooking up any crazy scheme necessary to reach her goal.

    When trouble reared its head, Pepper's emotions came out in Ally McBeal-like fantasies (the two shows actually debuted within a week of each other). Pepper Ann usually recieved advice from her conscience in the form of her reflection.

    Pepper Ann's best friends were Milo Kamalani, a quirky artist who was rarely ever seen without his purple hat; and Nicky Little, an aspiring violinist who was annoyingly perfect without really trying. Some of Pepper Ann's fellow students included rich and spoiled Trinket, German boy Dieter Liederhosen, popular airhead Cissy, gossipy twins Tessa and Vanessa, Nicky's boyfriend, the RC CAR Racing Stewart Walldinger, and the Cool 8th-grader, Craig. Pepper had no real enemies except Principal Hickey, a tough disciplinarian with zero tolerance for Pepper Ann's shenanigans.

    Every time in the opening sequence she always finds something different under her desk (similar to The Simpsons' couch gag).

    One of the original segments of "One Saturday Morning", Pepper Ann was a hit with audiences. Pepper Ann was formerly shown on Toon Disney weekdays at 2:30pm E/P, but due to many things including the addition of JETIX, it has vanished completely off the network. Along with a number of other shows it was removed from schedules in November 2004 and has not been seen since. It is unknown if it will ever return, and as of now Disney is currently deciding on whether or not to release it on DVD.
