The following is a list of sketches featured on The Amanda Show.

  • Commercials – Episodes generally began with a parody advertisement for an absurd product that nobody would really want to have. Examples include Lunchbay.com, an eBay.com-type website where people sold their lunches to really weird kids, Meatloaf Crunch, a meatloaf-themed cereal, and Sick Popples, ice pops that caused sickness when eaten.
  • Judge Trudy – A parody of the court show Judge Judy, the sketch stars Judge Trudy (played by Amanda Bynes), a thirteen-year-old judge, and the Bailiff (played by Gary Anthony Williams, and features a child plaintiff "suing" an adult defendant for petty grievances, such as receiving detention, being told to "please stop" or other wrongdoings. Regardless of the merit of the defendant's case, Trudy always finds in favor of the child, if necessary inventing reasons to do so, and sentences the adult to an absurd punishment. Each Judge Trudy sketch typically involved two cases, and would end with Trudy saying, "Bring in the dancing lobsters!", after which a group of human-sized lobsters, known as the Dancing Lobsters, would enter the courtroom and dance with the spectators.
  • Blockblister – A parody of the now-defunct video rental store chain Blockbuster. The sketch involved customers trying to rent popular movies and instead ending up with ridiculous knock-off versions which were poorly acted out by the vaguely Eastern European family that owned the store, it will always upset the customer and end with their polka dance.
  • The Girls' Room - A TV show that takes place in the girls' bathroom of a high school, but for one episode, took place in the boys' bathroom of the same school while a flood was being remedied in the girls' bathroom and messing with boys including Drake Bell and Josh Peck. The hosts are Amber, an egotistical girl who always makes sure to remind the audience that she is popular (although this just may be in her own mind, as in one skit, a girl was asked what made Amber so popular, the girl responded that she did not know who Amber was; in another skit, Amber was not invited to the prom nor voted prom queen), Sheila, (Lee, Reagan Gomez-Preston) an aggressive girl who disposes of unwelcome guests by giving them swirlies (usually executing them in the middle stall), Tammy, an "exchange student" from Tennessee with an extremely thick Southern accent, and Debbie, an unintelligent girl who constantly states that she likes eggs in a dopey voice (played by Jenna Morrison), and constantly annoys the others, especially Sheila. Amber has a rivalry with another, much more popular girl, Danielle Spencer, who always seems to one up Amber, but usually ends up getting a swirly from Sheila.
  • Totally Kyle – A short sketch starring a slacking stereotypical, laid-back hippie surfer and guitarist named Kyle Rostensan (played by Drake Bell) who tells vapid, nonsensical stories, usually beginning with the line "One time…" and uses the words "like" and "all" a lot. This was the only recurring sketch lacking an appearance by Bynes (though she introduces Kyle in a voiceover) and the only character from any Amanda Show skit to also appear on All That.
  • Moody's Point – An over-the-top parody of teen dramas and soap operas from the late 90s to early 2000s like Dawson's Creek and Caitlin's Way. The segment is presented as a show-within-a-show, and focuses on Moody Fallon (played by Bynes), an emotionally exaggerated teen who has hopelessly offended a lot, whose boyfriend has criticism so stupidly, whose mother (played by Maureen McCormick) was lost in a "tragic hot air balloon accident" and whose odd father (played by Carey Eidel) struggles with losing a toe near the end of the series. At the end of the last episode, the screen shows the words "To Be Continued", but The Amanda Show was cancelled shortly thereafter, ending Moody's Point with a cliffhanger. Schneider had pitched an actual spin-off series called "Moody's Point" to Nickelodeon, but the show was never green-lit.
  • Hillbilly Moment – Two hillbillies named Lula Mae who wears blue shorts and a red flowery cowgirl shirt that's tied (Bynes) and Eenis who wears blue overalls and a straw hat. (Drake Bell) tell a knock-knock joke which always ends with Lula Mae hitting Eenis over the head with the subject of the knock-knock joke.
  • Penelope Taynt – Penelope Taynt (played by Bynes) is Amanda's self-proclaimed number one fan. Between segments of an episode, Penelope is shown implementing a harebrained scheme to meet Amanda, often with the help of Drake Bell, Josh Peck (here playing themselves) or her brother Preston (played by Taylor Emerson) who always wants a sandwich even after the failiure, she can't deal with amanda because she IS her.
  • Mr. Oldman – An elderly widower (played by Dan Schneider) who hates children is a victim of constant prank calls from a curly-haired character named Amanda (played by Bynes), oldman's catchphrase is "YOU HAVE THE WRONG NUMBER!".
  • Crazy Courtney – Courtney (played by Bynes) is a strange girl with large teeth, glasses, and a hat who speaks in incomplete sentences, who puts on ridiculous schemes in order to get the person to leave. Her catchphrase is a loud "MA-HA!"
  • The Dare Show – A show hosted by a girl named Sharon (played by Bynes) and her younger brother, Toby (played by Drake Bell), who claim they will accept and perform any dare, but always renege on their promise when the disgusting and/or humiliating nature of the caller's dare becomes known. The caller then taunts them for this, after which Sharon or Toby cave, perform the dare, and say "I can't believe I just did that!" Their mother (Nancy Sullivan) would then come in to stop the show, only to go through what they just did. The callers are said to come from a city in the wrong place (such as New York, North Dakota and Barcelona, Alabama).
  • Cynthia Worthington – Cynthia Worthington (played by Amanda Bynes) is an aristocrat who was brought up by a very wealthy and civilized family, who appears nice, but engages in increasingly revolting behavior.
  • When People Attack – A parody of the dramatic crime documentary show When Animals Attack!. Amanda Bynes introduces herself as a ridiculous but apparently famous character, then explains how a certain inoffensive group have been attacking people. Sketches ended with amanda getting viewers to call a phone number involving them and with the attackers evenwards showing up in the studio horrifying her. Amanda also shows no sympathy for the victims of the attack.
  • Amanda's Jacuzzi – A talk show in which Amanda Bynes, in a jacuzzi asks a guest two normal questions about themselves, and then a ridiculous, nonsensical one. The puzzled guest replies "no", and then Amanda asks, "How about a plate of spaghetti?"
  • Mr. Gullible – A substitute teacher (played by John Kassir in Season 1 and by Andrew Hill Newman in Season 2) is tricked into increasingly absurd tasks by his students.
  • So You Wanna Win Five Dollars? – A parody of the game show Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? hosted by Tina (Bynes). The contestant, usually a character from another recurring skit on the show, who isn't very bright, is asked three questions, with the final question being worth five dollars.

  • The Klutzes – A family, portrayed by Amanda Bynes, Drake Bell, Nancy Sullivan, and John Kassir, who constantly trip and fall down. At the end of the sketch, the family typically does something to destroy the building or fall out of a window. Their catchphrase is "Not a problem".
  • The Extremes – a family of three who always take every little thing to an extreme. Whatever they feel, they seem to always overreact to it. For example, when eating pizza, the daughter begins crying hysterically, claiming she is sad that when they finish eating it, it will be gone. This exasperates everyone around the family. Another example is when the doorbell rings, the family goes hiding in horror as if an intruder is coming in to attack them.
