* Even before the massive CerebusSyndrome, ''WesternAnimation/MoralOrel'' is pretty firmly planted on the cynical side, playing both [[PlayedForLaughs playing for laughs]] and [[PlayedForDrama for drama]] the StepfordSuburbia of Moralton and the [[InVinoVeritas dysfunctional]] [[HappyMarriageCharade and]] [[BreakTheCutie depressing]] lives of its residents. Despite this, the show keeps a few [[HopeSpot hope spots]] [[spoiler: most notably in the episodes "Dumb" and "Closeface," as well as the [[EarnYourHappyEnding ending]]]].
