Added DiffLines:

* MadLibsCatchPhrase: Blaine and Antoine from the "Men on.." skits had several, where they would always end their program with "Two snaps and..." or a specific type of snap (i.e., Men on Videotapes had "Two snaps and a rewind" and Men on Football had "Two snaps and yo' back's in motion" while both of them shake their asses at the camera on two different ways while Men on Vacation got a special "Around the world and back snap".)


Added DiffLines:

* PetTheDog: While all of the other music video parodies are of the TakeThat variety, the parody of "Saving the Best for Last" by Vanessa L. Williams was more of such to her detractors since she was able to make a successful career after the Miss America scandal and were rather complimentary of her.

* WhereDaWhiteWomenAt: The tribal men in "The New Republic of Naganawanaland" skit are eager to have their way with appointed ambassador Margaret Linsford Hall. Thanks to her [[TrollingTranslator interpreter Mr. Mobutu]] teaching her a phrase to close with.

* WhosYourDaddy: In "Three Champs and a Baby", the baby belonged to a woman named Judy, whom they made at a New Year's party (and each slept with her at different times). So they decided to take turns taking care of the baby.

* BreakingTheFourthWall: [[InvokedTrope a necessity]] for the "Miss Benita" sketches, as the viewer is usually treated as a neighborhood resident Miss Benita is acquainted with. The exceptions to this rule were the court room & high school reunion sketches, which required actual characters for Benita to play off (though she still occasionally broke the fourth wall in the latter sketch).
** Fire Marshall Bill and Homey D. Clown also regularly broke the fourth wall in their sketches.



* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Constantly. At the time, a number of pundits viewed the show as a dangerous menace to society, and decades later, a lot of the sketches (the ones that aren't dated due to the march of time) are still shocking.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Constantly. At the time, a number of pundits viewed the show as a dangerous menace to society, and decades later, a lot of the sketches (the ones that aren't dated due to the march of time) are still shocking. Though there were two blatant examples that were cut from sketches:
**In a Homey D. Clown sketch where he's acting as a substitute teacher, Homey's alphabet cards are out of order, and the children proceed to mock him for it. Damon Wayans, ad-libbing, proceeds to say something that gets bleeped immediately, and is told point-blank by the directors and producers that it wasn't gonna fly on TV.
** In one of the early "Ugly Wanda" sketches, the titular character is chasing her horrified love interest (Tommy Davison) [[ItMakesSenseInContext around a massage parlor]]. At one point, Jamie Foxx (Wanda) grabs hold of the back of Davidson's underwear, and accidentally pulls them down too far, giving the studio audience full view of Davidson's family jewels.

** This was the whole point of ''Ted Turner's Really Colorized Classics'', which put famous black performers (and their shticks) in place of white ones in old films. Redd Foxx substitutes for Creator/CharlieChaplin in ''[[Film/TheKid1921 The Kid]]'', and Billy Dee Williams gets Creator/HumphreyBogart's role in ''Film/{{Casablanca}}''.

* EnemyMine: A Season Five skit has Rush Limbaugh and Reverend Al Sharpton (played by Jay Leggett and David Alan Grier respectively) team up with each other, despite their opposing worldviews, in a tag-team wrestling match against Howard Stern and Robin Quivers (played by JimCarrey and T'Keyah "Crystal" Keymah respectively), who offend both men deeply.

* {{Nepotism}}: Most of the producers/actors were related to one another as the show was, essentially, a family business. It's very telling that most of the show's breakout stars were the ones who had no blood connection to the Wayans in any way, shape, or form (JimCarrey, David Alan Grier, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Lopez, and Tommy Davidson).
