to:

* BikiniBar: The Around the Clock Cafe?Cafe gives vibes of this, with Lucy the Slut putting on a very suggestive performance, but not actually stripping down.

Averted; the play is inspired by ''Series/SesameStreet'', but not directly based on any previous work.
* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: The puppet characters have a broad range skin colours: Princeton is orange, Rod is blue, Nicky is green, Lucy the Slut is pink, and Trekkie Monster is covered in reddish-brown fur. Ironically, Kate Monster's tan fur is the most human-like, despite her being a "monster" puppet.

* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Insistently averted: "I'm Gary Coleman, from TV's ''DiffrentStrokes'' / I made a lot of money that got stolen by my folks!" (In the original Broadway production, and most subsequent American shows, Gary Coleman is played by a woman. For the London production, who [[EaglelandOsmosis might not know the show]], Gary Coleman is played by a man.)

* AllMenAreArePerverts: Trekkie's belief that "The Internet is for Porn" is heartily backed up by all the guys of Avenue Q, much to Kate's disgust. The possibility that women "unzip their flies" as well is never entertained.

* EarnYourHappyEnding: Despite the description of the BittersweetEnding above, it's worth noting that he can find a purpose offscreen. He can work as an English teacher at Kate's monsters' school (assuming the monsters only part doesn't also mean only monster staff).
