Critical response

The comic series was a universal acclaim to both critics and fans of Cartoon Network. It is said to be one of the most popular Cartoon Network comics to this day.

  • Running gag: Usually, in most of the issues, the Croc arrives and attacks the students, mainly Chicken, Rigby and Peppy.
    • For the first volume, the only times the running gag doesn't happen is The Field Trip, Food Fight, Club Conflict, Flu Pandemic, and Invasion of the Student Snatchers.
    • For the second volume, the only times the running gag doesn't happen is Spring Cleaning, Survival, TBD
      • He also does not do that in the crossover issue with Warner School.
    • However, the only students Croc will NOT attack are Bubbles, Ed, Kevin, Nessie and Claire for these following reasons:
      • Bubbles because he thinks that her cuteness (especially when she is crying) is "unbearable to handle" and "too heart-breaking for him", making him considering her as his main weakness. His victims like Chicken and Rigby would sometimes use Bubbles as a weapon by harming her, causing her to cry.
      • Ed because of that one incident where Mandy and Ed were fighting and because of Ed's strength, he unintentionally injures Mandy, so bad that she had to go to the hospital. Since then, Croc is too scared to fight him.
      • Claire because he knows that any alive animal like himself cannot harm ghosts, which is the main reason why he added a "Phantom Mode" on Robo-Croc.
      • Nessie and Kevin because he believes that plesiosaurs and horse-sized tarantulas could easily take down crocodiles.
    • Robo-Croc, when Croc uses him to substitute himself when he's gone, will also attack most students. Though, like Croc, he will not attack Bubbles or Ed, but unlike Croc, he will attack Claire (using his "Phantom Mode" that was given by the Croc), Nessie and Kevin using his strength and will also NOT attack Dexter, since Robo-Croc thinks that'll be disrespectful to those who creates robots like him.
  • Running gag: Another running gag (since Volume 2) has Fred Fredburger randomly appearing.
  • A few times throughout the comic series, gross-up close-up scenes similar to those seen in Ren and Stimpy and SpongeBob SquarePants happen. For example:
    • In Food Fight, right before Aku fires his eye beams at Peppy, it shows a brief close-up to his face while he says "It's time".
    • In It Came from the Girls' Bathroom, when the Sink Monster makes its debut, it shows a close-up to him when he's popping out of the sink.
      • In the same issue, after Nessie forces Kappa, Bear Lake Monster and Loveland Frog to go in the girls' bathroom to capture the monster, Bear Lake Monster says "I can't believe we have to go in the girls' bathroom for those boneheads!". After that, it shows Bubbles, Mandy, Nessie and Claire making random faces in a more realistic style.
    • Flu Pandemic had lots of gross-up close-ups. In some scenes, it'd show close-ups of the students' sick faces. For example:
    • In Invasion of the Student Snatchers, after the fake Peppy Lion saves the staff from the lawnmower the fake Dexter was riding on, it shows a close-up to fake Peppy's face, with him saying "It's all over now!"
    • In Slug and Snail Invasion, when the Snail Queen was first introduced, it had a gross-up close-up moment, showing her disgusting appearance.
    • In the beginning of Taking Over, when Aku was trying to get the students' attention and the students never bother to listen to Aku, it shows a gruesome close-up to Aku's scary face before firing eye-beams at the students.
    • In Hail King Croc, when that dimension's version of Croc is shown, it showed a close-up of his face.
    • In TBD, at one scene, it showed a close-up to Mandy's thinking face.
    • In TBD, the students and the Croc made ugly screaming faces.
  • In Rise of Lord Moldybutt, it is revealed that this comic series takes place somewhere in the 2020s.
    • Since the town from The Field Trip was abandoned 489 years before the events of CN: CNS, that would've mean that it was abandoned somewhere from 1531 to 1540.
  • CN School was originally gonna be strictly Cartoon Network, but for unknown reasons, Warner Bros. Animation characters were added, though only with a really minor role. It is likely either because of people demanding the creators to add them in, added as a tribute to someone that was well-known to WB, or they were simply just added to mock them as CN's "corporate overlords".
    • Therefore, characters from Warner Bros. Animation cartoons have made cameos throughout the comic series. For example:
      •  Bugs Bunny is the superintendent of the school district, though he usually has a minor role, with the only time he gets a major role is New Principal for Hire.
        • In addition, Lola Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Buster and Babs Bunny are occasionally seen with him.
      • In Hush Little Bubbles, Collin, Cooper and Tommy all make a brief cameo.
      • In Teacher of the Year!, Ashton Paintders and Shoney is shown at the staff party as a cameo.
      • In Girls' Night Out, Yakko, Wakko and Dot Warner were briefly seen walking across a carnival.
      • In Survival, Charlotte Parsons and Howler were mentioned by K.O.
      • In NURSE!, Miranda Phillips appears in a drawing Bubbles made.
  • The name, Sorridente, is actually "Smiling" in both Italian and Portuguese.
  • The comic had a crossover with Warner School, being titled Warner x CN: Team Up!.
  • Originally, The Croc was planned to be a CN School exclusive character, but due to the popularity of that character, he appeared in WB Kids comics, notably WB Kids Girlz: Monmouth. He even got his own spin-off.
  • The students receive nicknames in advertisements. For example:
    • Dexter as The Kid Genius
    • Johnny as The Girls' Nightmare
    • Chicken as The Dimwit Chicken
    • Bubbles as Cutie Hero Pie
    • Ed as The Strong Idiot
    • Courage as The Scaredy Dog
    • Numbuh 1 as 001
    • Mandy as The Sinister Girl
    • Kevin as The Big Bug
    • Peppy as The Malicious Cougar
    • Jake as The Shapeshifting Dog
    • Rigby as The Stupid Raccoon
    • Steven as The Adorable Gem
    • Nessie as The Bad-A Cryptid
    • Claire as The Cute Ghost
    • K.O. as The Tiny But Tough Kid
