* NightmareFetishist: Whenever anything terrible is happening or seems likely to happen, odds are Louise will be rooting for it. She also ''loves'' to be terrified, but it takes a lot to manage it. One episode involves her family enacting a huge, elaborate plot involving several other characters to finally manage to scare her, and it turns out to be a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming because it's what she always wanted.

* {{Expy}}: Whether this was intentional or not, Teddy bears a lot of similarities to Bill Dauterive from ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill''.

The only differences between Bill and Teddy are: (a) Teddy was never in the military like Bill was, (b) the Belchers don't take advantage of Teddy as much as the Hills do to Bill, (c) Teddy's self-esteem is slightly higher than Bill's, (d) Teddy, unlike Bill, seems to have anger issues and (e) Teddy has had more ThrowTheDogABone moments than Bill.
