* CreatorBacklash: Dave left the show mostly due to the way he felt the racial humor had gone, the fanbase that refused to stop repeating his famous line and how Comedy Central treated the show. This is Chappelle's spin on it, however. The fact that he had gone from stuff like...''HalfBaked''... to becoming a cultural icon in less than five years might have been [[CreatorBreakdown a bit too much for him to take in all at once]].

Added DiffLines:

* LifeImitatesArt: The final skit of the show's "third season" (filmed before Dave left) has Dave meeting with [[Film/TheWizardofOz The All Powerful Show Business]], who offers him various ways to capitalize on his popularity (i.e. Dave Chappelle cereal, a Lil Jon movie and an {{MTV}} Cribs appearance). The skit ends with Dave walking away from show business.

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: The [=DVDs=] lack about half of the live musical performances. However, since Creator/ComedyCentral reruns the show periodically, it shouldn't be too hard to find this material. The [=DVDs=], despite being huge sellers, ultimately fell out of print for a couple of years. In 2012 Comedy Central reissued the entire series as a box set.

* HeyItsThatGuy / RetroactiveRecognition: Cee Lo Green performs on one episode, introduced as just "Cee Lo" and ''long'' before the release of "Fuck You". That appearance happened almost a [[OlderThanTheyThink decade]] after his first album was released.
** Dave was fond of casting other comics in his sketches; his HalfBaked costars show up a few times and Bill Burr (aka [[Series/BreakingBad Kuby]]) makes a couple appearances as well.
** [[Series/TheOfficeUS Rashida]] [[Series/ParksAndRecreation Jones]] show up in a few minor roles, before anyone really knew who she was.

* ArtistDisillusionment / CreatorBacklashCreatorBacklash: As he said in response to fans constantly quoting his most famous line out of context:
-->'''Chappelle''': "You know why my show is good? Because the network officials say you're not smart enough to get what I'm doing, and every day I fight for you. I tell them how smart you are. Turns out, I was wrong. You people are stupid."
