* ThePigPen/TrashoftheTitans: Depending on the episode Mr. Bumpy could be one or the other, whether he's just disgusting in person, or adding to the already gigantic horde of filth he keeps in his under the bed domicile.

** From "Danger: Unexploded Squishington."
-->'''Mr. Bumpy''': Don't try this at home, kids. [[TrustMeImAnX I get the big bucks for this.]] Now remember, if you hear something going [[TitleDrop Bump in the Night]], call a parent, or someone you can trust! and let them....get eaten by a burglar or a monster, or whatever it is, y'know...

* RecycledAnimation: happens often, in order to save money on the painstaking process of stop motion. A few clips of characters talking are recycled episode-to-episode in order to save time lip-synching.
** A lot of [[RunningGag]]s are used to facilitate the re-used animation. The same BoobyTrap, involving a bowling ball rolling down a ramp, is sprung multiple times in "Comforting the Uncomfortable." Squishy is hit twice with the same safe in "Night of the Living Bread." And Bumpy is amused by a [[ItMakesSenseinContext remote control that sprouts fungus]] in "Danger: Unexploded Squishington."

Added DiffLines:

** It works the other way around for Mr. Bumpy. In "Adventures in Microbia" Bumpy, who usually hates cleanliness, is all too eager to help Squishy shrink to microscopic size to fight off germs in the bathroom.


Added DiffLines:

** A lot of episodes end with random explosions as punctuation marks, a trend prabably launched in "Danger: Unexploded Squishington" when the [[ChekhovsGun clock extracted from Squishy's belly really does turn out to be a bomb.]]


Added DiffLines:

** An especially elaborate one happens in "Night of the Living Bread" when the {{OrsonWells}} {{Expy}} narrator tries to claim that Bumpy and Squishy didn't look behind them when the Evil Bread popped back out of the toaster, and narrates a section where the evil bread escapes and eats everyone, only for Bumpy to come back and shout down the narrator for telling the story wrong.

The development of the series began as a series of {{Ad Bumper}}s for ABC's Saturday morning lineup in 1993, possibly, the reason he's called Mr. Bumpy is because he was originally used as a character for bumpers. The series lasted for two seasons, and concluded with a 90 minute long Christmas Special. The format of a usual episode included two cartoons and a "Karaoke Cafe" segment where the characters sung a song about the episodes' lesson.
