* ShoutOut: Ardy's latter catchphrase (listed above), mundane function, lackadaisical demeanor, and facelessness are partially inspired by [[{{Series/Rhoda}} Carlton the doorman]], who also helped influence Joel's laid-back nature on the original show (and was briefly imitated by him in the ''Mitchell'' episode).

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: While neither Joel nor Mike have any ability to control when the movies start or stop, it's Joel's fault. The ExpositoryThemeSong of the earlier seasons notes that he used the parts that could have let him do so to construct the robots.

* SelfMadeMan: [[spoiler:After the SOL's crash (at the end of the series) she ditched Mike and the other Bots and founded a multi-billion dollar company. Though since this was 1999 and near the peak of the dot-com bubble, when even TVTropes might have been valued in the billions, it's sort of an open question whether her fortune lasted.]]

** When looking at a fan's drawing of the old show, Jonah refers to the "floating orb" Cambot as "Old Cambot", suggesting that the one in the revival is not the same character.
