The ultimate fear for the use of any running gag is that it becomes an OverlyLongGag, or worse, that it was never funny in the first place and didn't improve through repetition. Nothing is worse than starting a one hour show with a joke that bombs that you're going to use twenty times over the next hour.

->''"That's not funny. But don't worry; it's a running joke, so they'll repeat it several times until you have no choice but to find it funny."''

A joke that is only mildly funny the first time, but becomes funnier each time it is repeated. ''Must'' be repeated at least [[RuleOfThree three times]], otherwise it's a BrickJoke. But repeat it ''too'' many times and it becomes an OverlyLongGag. A variant is a joke or scene that occurs OnceAnEpisode; doing ''that'' too often threatens to turn it into an OverusedRunningGag.
