* In ''The Wicked'', during the ''Sound of Music'' parody scene, one of Mrs. Robinson's KickTheDog actions is to spray a speed limit sign marked 30 with spray paint, changing the 3 to an 8... and then [[UpToEleven adding another 0 at the end]], causing two cars to crash into each other. The gag itself is hilarious (if [[BlackComedy a bit cruel]]), but it doesn't make sense when you think about it. For one thing, what kind of driver would actually believe that the speed limit in a neighborhood area is 80 mph/kph, much less 800? It's also pretty implausible that both drivers saw the sign at the same time (and especially without seeing Mrs. Robinson change it.) Not to mention that most cars couldn't go nearly that fast, whether 800 is in mph or kph. In the show, it can simply be chalked up to RuleOfFunny, but it's very unlikely that this would work in real life.

A high speed collision like that would be much more horrific in real life, so DontTryThisAtHome.)

* With Nicole's personality, it's not hard not to see her as a flat out AbusiveParent towards her children (especially how they ran away in fear of her in "The DVD", her implied physical threats in "The Egg", [[TookALevelInJerkAss all of her behavior in "The Hero"]] and it can almost seem she's grooming Anais to be just liker her too.

* At this point it's really no secret that the whole universe (Not just individual planets but the universe ITSELF) is sentient and able to do things such as dumping things it considers mistakes into the void. So, wouldn't it get bored? It might, seeing as it's apparently intelligent. The Rule of Fun and Rule of Funny events AND the various mishmash of artstyles, people coming out of lethal situations alright (even if they didn't survive, like everyone's favourite cartoony piece of toast) might just be the result of the world itself being bored and allowing for willful suspension of REALITY just to see how much fun it would be if, for example, the Waterson family had a street race...

* In "The Night" Darwin dreams that he is sleeping in a bigger fish bowl than the one he's already in. In "The Roots" ( A couple episodes later) Darwin tries to get a bigger fish bowl (Or rather, a fish tank.) in the pet store.

** You're probably right, but it's not like Gumball and Darwin knew this. They can't remember who Rob was or what he looked like before, so it's not like they knew that his static was a result of being disfigured.

* Why would there be a piece of toast running around but virtually no other food items? Well, in "The World" we pretty much found out that EVERYTHING is sentient, even food. The toast family is just one of the more prominent and active ones. And well, then there's the fact that y'know, [[FridgeHorror Food gets eaten]].
** What do you mean virtually no other food items? There's Banana Joe, Sarah G.Lato, Hot Dog Guy, Idaho, Doughnut Sheriff, Elmore is practically crawling with them.

* Juke's dream involves him speaking English instead of the usual noises and music he uses to "speak". He says "I can communicate again!"...which makes perfect sense when you remember Juke is canonically an immigrant to Elmore. This whole time, he's been speaking the language of his homeland, and it just sounds like sound effects and music to us.

Added DiffLines:

* Overlaps with FridgeHorror, or perhaps HarsherInHindsight: In "The Nemesis," Gumball and Darwin follow [[spoiler:Rob]], their [[TitleDrop nemesis]] around all day trying to make him a better villain. Their efforts--loudly making up his theme song behind him on the bus, following him and throwing out obnoxious new villain names--result in only mild annoyance on his part. So what makes him snap? The last two "names" they suggest consist of "Doctor," followed by annoying static sounds ("Doctor KSSSHHHHHHHHHH"). [[spoiler:Given how sensitive about his new, staticy Void-body Rob is, of course he'd flip out. The thought of being constantly reminded of his "broken body" (as he puts it) is completely unbearable. It'd be the equivalent of calling someone covered in accident scars "Doctor Scar".]]
