* KingKoopaCopy: The show does this twice. This is likely a case of AuthorAppeal, as series creator Creator/CHGreenblatt is a video game fan:
** In the episode "Big Ball", the sports arena is thrown into a giant trash can by an an enormous Bowser-like monster.
** In another episode, there is a brief ArtShift where all the characters become pixellated. Resident {{Jerkass}} [[YouDirtyRat Gorgonzola]] turns into a similar monster, complete with spiky shell.

From C.H. Greenblatt, formerly a writer and storyboard artist on both ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'', comes this little crazy series inspired by food and Dr. Seuss.

* RecursiveReality: "Grubble Gum" opens with Chowder eating a gumball with muffled screaming being heard as he chews it. At the end of the episode, when Chowder has gummed everyone and everything on the planet together, the planet gets eaten by another Chowder and similar screaming is heard.

* AllElectionsAreSeriousBusiness: In "Panini for President", the president of the council of apprentices runs out chasing a fly in the middle of their annual meeting, and when Panini quickly proclaims herself the new president, Gorgonzola talks Chowder into trying to take the title from her and make him his vice-president (after his own presidential bid is soundily rejected). Gorgonzola then pulls out all the stops to try and ensure Chowder is elected over Panini, including dumping what looks like tarmac on her. [[spoiler: Eventually it's all for naught, as the president finally kills the fly he was chasing and takes back his position at the end of the episode.]]

* FadeAroundTheEyes: A very brief example, but in one episode, the Cinnamini Monster does this in the scene when he first meets Chowder. The monster moves forward, groaning, while the screen fades to black around his eyes, and when he reaches Chowder, [[spoiler:he hugs him]]. While the Monster is more of a {{Jerkass}} {{Yandere}} than actually evil, Chowder does not know this yet, and thinks that the Monster means to hurt him. This trope is used to make the Monster seem scary because that is how Chowder sees the Monster.

** Sorta confirmed, when Truffles got her voice changed, everyone was stress free and Schnitzel could talk. No one liked it, so he started speaking "Radda" again after about five seconds.

* CircusEpisode: The team of Mung's Catering is tasked with baking a circus tent out of bread (a pun on the phrase "BreadAndCircuses") for a group of performers called the Flying Flinger Lingons. Chowder loves the [=FFLs=]' act so much that he runs away to join them. Because he is TooDumbToLive, Mung is worried that Chowder will destroy the circus, so he, Truffles, and Schnitzel sneak in to try and get him back.

* ComicallyMissingThePoint: Often, but one moment to remember is in "Shopping Spree" by Chowder, in which where Mung, Chowder and Schnitzel tries to come up with an excuse to spend all the money in her moneybox (since Truffles is sick and has no control over it at the moment), by smashing a cooking machine to pieces.
