Added DiffLines:

* FatBestFriend: Kevin Murphy has affectionately commented on Tom being "portly", and his entire design is a little rounded and squat to convey stoutness. It's even present when he dons clothing -- his jutting keypad tends to accidentally give him a prominent middle.

* ThroughTheEyesOfMadness: At one point Pearl gives LSD to the robots and has Mike hook them up to a monitor to see what they're seeing. Servo sees everyone as a lot more demonic, but he just laughs it off and says that that's what he ''always'' sees.

Servo sees everyone as From Servo's point of view, Crow and Mike are gibbering monsters while his vision kaleidoscopes into a lot more demonic, but mad swirl of horrible colors and shapes. But he just laughs it off and says that that's what he ''always'' sees.

Added DiffLines:

* ButNotTooWhite: His stark clown-white makeup was eventually toned down as the series progressed -- he was in increasingly more scenes next to Bobo, and the crew found it hard to properly light the contrasting dark tones of the suit's fur while preserving detail on Bill's face.

Added DiffLines:

* OxymoronicBeing: The limitations of the supposedly all-knowing, all-powerful Observer species are made into a RunningGag of sorts -- their brains are claimed to be "entirely self-sufficient" but still require host bodies that may or may not exist, said brains are kept in jars (where they have a functional range of only 50 yards) rather than inside their heads, and their infinite intelligence can be hoodwinked by crude trickery or intimidated by physical threats.

* TransparentCloset: With Dr. Forrester. One sketch revolved entirely around them acting like a fussy old married couple when nobody's watching, and the guests at "Auntie McFrank's Tangleberry Inn" sheepishly ask just what he and Clay's relationship is after seeing Frank in a housedress and bonnet.

* TransparentCloset: With Dr. Forrester. One sketch revlolved around this.

to:

* TransparentCloset: With MadBomber: After watching [[{{Film/Speed}} several]] [[Film/BlownAway action]] [[Film/InTheLineOfFire movies]] featuring assassins, bomb plots, and explosions, the easily suggestible Frank becomes a cackling, scheming lunatic who plots to blow up Deep 13. (Of course, he's still Frank, so he doesn't bother tying Dr. Forrester. One sketch revlolved around this.F's ropes very tightly, or even keeping track of his hostages.)

* ShoutOut: He's named after the hero of the 1953 film adaptation of ''Film/TheWarOfTheWorlds''.

* ShoutOut: He's named after the hero of the 1953 film adaptation of ''Film/TheWarOfTheWorlds''.''Film/TheWarOfTheWorlds'', and Joel has commented that much of his later petty, fussy characterization was inspired by Dr. Fate from ''Film/TheGreatRace'' (including his catch phrase of "push the button").

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalVillainy: He's noticeably more sadistic in TheMovie than he is in the series proper, going so far as actually cutting off Mike's air supply when he gives him lip.
