** "Puppington" could be derived from "Puppetoon", a term coined by pioneering stop-motion animator George Pal, which he used to describe his work.

** In the episode "Nesting", Clay expresses surprise upon hearing that Ms. Censordoll is also in the running, implying that no one else ever runs against him.

** According to Dino, that stuff was written "when continuity didn't matter." Aside from a brief, blink-and-you'll-miss-it callback in "Alone," it might as well be DisContinuity at this point.

* Why does Clay hate his "lousy stinkin' dead end job" as Mayor of Moralton anyway? He seems focused on money even though Mayor is a pretty good job.
** Clay seems like someone who's basically self-destructive enough to never be happy about anything. Plus being Mayor probably involves a lot of work doing what's best for citizens and ultimately taking care of other people and judging by his interactions with his family, Clay deeply resents being obligated to take care of anyone but himself.

** It is heavily implied that his parents were stuck living their high school days, not knowing or caring that part of their lives is over. However, what we're not clear on (or I'm not clear on, I haven't seen that episode in a while) is if the regression was always there, or if it started out and worsened over a time-frame. Perhaps what we see of them is something that happened maybe about 2 years ago or such and Doughy was at least able to use the money to feed and take care of some issues at the house. Again, without an exact time-frame, nothing is really certain. Comes with the name anyway, doughy "latchkey".

*** Alternatively, it may have been that his grandparents took care of him and passed away after he was able to live up to his namesake.

** Or he might've presented himself well in the first election (he didn't know it was a "stinking dead-end job" until later), and then voter apathy kicked in.

**** It's probably more along the line of 'hey, maybe having a baby will 'fix' this marriage!'. Orel certainly wouldn't have been the first child conceived under this mindset.

** They're actually supposed to be one of the more stable and normal couples. Everyone sees their marrage as the status quo, and if nothing else Moralton is ''all'' about preserving the status quo.

** My guess is that he uses the Christian value of forgiveness. I mean,after how corrupt nearly everyone in Moralton was,Oral ''still'' has a cross hung up in his living room. And despites Bloberta and Clay's terrible parenting,the kids [[spoiler:Did turn out normal,with Shapey and Blocky being a Policeman and a Fireman,respectively and Oral ended up a good guy even after all the crap he'd been put through.]] But that could just be because of the efforts of the few sane people in Moralton,such as Stephanie, Daniel Stopframe and Reverend Putty.

* If Clay and Blobberta hate each other so much during Marriage then why did they have Orel in the first place? It also doesn't help that they neglect the boy and wordofgod says that Orel is not a accident.

** Well, given the zero shits adults seem to give about kids in Moralton, they're probably left to do whatever they want.
