* BrokenAesop: The episode "Bravestarr and the Law", in which the AndKnowingIsHalfTheBattle segment has Bravestarr talking about how one should always obey the law even if you don't agree with it. However, in the episode (in which Shaman is about to be evicted), he's ready and willing to quit his job as a lawman, but stops short of (and anguishes over) actually ''breaking'' the law up until the true facts are revealed and Shaman's home is no longer endangered.
** Still, "Bravestarr and the Law" feels a lot like a Broken Aesop; at any rate, the message is brought across in a confusing way. Bravestarr goes back to his job not so much because of a respect for the law per se as because he realizes that without him as Marshal, not only Shaman but all of society is in danger from Tex Hex. Furthermore, there is a strong dissonance between the very explicit message at the end of the episode that we should obey the law even if we don't agree with it and the shaman's invitation to Bravestarr to consider for himself what he should do in the situation he was in, accompanied by the arguably confusing and morally ambiguous analogy of Bravestarr having had to ponder as a boy whether it was justified to rescue a bird by disturbing the sacred water it was drowning in. On the whole a rather difficult story to digest for an adult, let alone for a kid.
