* AnimatedActors: The characters occasionally refer to themselves as such when they're BreakingTheFourthWall.

* BilingualBonus: A lot of it. In Japanese, a lot of the jokes have some basis in logic as [[VisualPun Visual Puns]], which obviously don't translate into English. This makes the humor appear completely random in English, but if you're well versed in Japanese language, you can deduce what the puns are. For example, in a popularity contest, Dengakuman gets fourth place, and then climbs into a coffin, because in Japanese, FourIsDeath.

** Name any character on this show. ANY character. Chances are they're completely off their rocker.

Combining a thinly-disguised AffectionateParody of ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'' with a [[HurricaneOfPuns plethora of bad puns]], pop-culture parodies, and [[ThisIsYourPremiseOnDrugs a cocktail of hallucinogens]], '''''Bobobo-Bo Bo-bobo''''' is [[SurrealHumor every bit as weird as its name]], which is also the name of its main character. Bo-bobo (as he's known) is a tall, muscular man with sunglasses, a large blonde afro, and tendencies towards childish, eccentric, or downright strange behavior that belies his serious demeanor. Not surprisingly, it's filled with [[DerangedAnimation strange, bizarre or outright surreal imagery that has little to do with the plot most of the time]].

The show was very well liked in America and Japan; the dub wasn't a direct translation from the Japanese original (just look at the narrator) as a lot of the jokes from the original source were centered around Japanese culture and likely wouldn't translate well to English-speaking countries, though the writers did a good job working around this. The voice acting in both versions was great (Creator/KirkThornton, an incredibly famous voice actor, voiced Don Patch and is considered to be one of his best roles), and it appealed to many people. However, the anime was cancelled after 76 episodes, and the American manga beginning at Volume 11 (renumbered) is on hiatus, with only five volumes released (supposedly they are going to translate more in the future, according to an email). The Japanese manga is finished, but there is still high demand from fans to finish the anime.

Not to be confused with ''Bobobobs'', a similarly wacky (but infinitely saner) Japanese/Spanish animated series which enjoyed some heavy popularity on those countries in TheNineties.

** The English adaptation that aired on Creator/CartoonNetwork went even further in both removing scenes and implementing the dreaded NeverSayDie trope. Some of the foreign dubs also did this.

** Chapter 83/episode 32 of the Manga has Jelly Jiggler, Don Patch, and Bo-bobo imagining "the technique", which are three different techniques. In the anime, the techniques are just three completely different attacks. However, in the manga, they respectively imagine [[{{Kinnikuman}} the Phony Muscle Revenger, the Muscle Inferno, and the Muscle Spark.]]
