* IdiotBall: A few times such as "Inventors Only" with Flint believing everything and doing an ObviouslyEvil "inventor" says and tells him to do just because Flint wanted to meet another inventor in the town.

What makes it funny is the laugh track telling you it's funny."

* AlmightyJanitor: [[spoiler:Manny. Doctor, pilot, ''nuclear physicist''... and [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers comedian]]. Because he was kidding about being a nuclear physicist.]]
** [[spoiler: ...Every so often, he also dabbles at being a TV cameraman, as well.]]

* AnguishedDeclarationOfLove: [[spoiler:During the climax, in which Sam has an allergic reaction to peanut butter and is trying to keep Flint steady, he insists she go and get treatment, but she refuses, stating that she ''"likes, likes"'' him. And he responds that he feels the same way.]]



* ElementsDoNotWorkThatWay: This film depicts a storybook world that runs on the RuleOfFunny. Any scientific errors are probably as fully intentional as ''everyone'' in Swallow Falls being forced to eat sardines 24/7 just because the plant closed down.
** Flint's [[ItRunsOnNonsenseoleum explanation of how the machine works]] amounts to an announcement from the writers that they're not even pretending it's remotely plausible.
*** Water does not have a genetic code and thus can't mutate. Besides, most food is mostly made from sugars, and food made from water would have no nutritional value. [[SophisticatedAsHell Unless he's mutating the microbes IN the water, which is gross.]]
*** Mutating the water with microwave radiation is not possible as microwave radiation only speeds up the movement of atoms, causing it to heat up. However, it could be a form of elemental fusion/fission. Remove two protons from an oxygen's nucleus and you get carbon... but even this would still be failing physics unless [[note]] you consider "mutation" simply a change in basic structure or reasons of this structure and not necessarily DNA, then you can mutate water if you [[TechnoBabble employ strong electromagnetic field or somehow manipulate vacuum polarization effectiveness]] or even [[BeyondTheImpossible change universal constants]], but effects wouldn't generate meatballs, only possibly make existing ones inedible. However, if one would want to make food from thin air (or water), one would have to trans'''mutate''' a lot of atoms and combine a lot of molecules; the process could also provide enough energy to self-sustain the machine's work (if fusion and not fission is the dominating process), [[/note]] which happens in the story. This might be partially intentional.

* InferredHolocaust: Subverted. While many of the world's landmarks were either destroyed, damaged, or defaced by the giant food, starvation, it seems, won't be an issue for a long time. This applies especially to third-world countries.

Added DiffLines:

* ReedRichardsIsUseless: Flint's inventions tend to go wrong in ways he doesn't expect, but he creates an AI out of a television, makes a hair restorer that's ''too'' effective, does a little genetic engineering and hybridization, and creates a spray sealant that makes Flex Seal look like Elmer's glue, several of these when he's barely old enough to cross the street alone. If he wasn't on some "rinky-dink island in the middle of nowhere" and actually had someone to direct his efforts productively, he'd be rich.

* {{Retcon}}: Sam and Manny are, for some reason, students in Cannery High School. In the first episode this is given a HandWave: Flint says that if Sam ever moves away from Swallow Falls, he will invent a memory eraser.

* {{Flanderization}}: Flint is both completely obsessive and oblivious, Sam has a knack for inventing, Earl is ProperlyParanoid about Flints bungling, Brent is much more obnoxious and stupid and constantly wears a diaper, and Manny is [[BunnyEarsLawyer much more goofy (but no less competent)]] and prone to smiling.

* RainOfSomethingUnusual: The tiny town of Chewandswallow never got normal weather, but instead all their food came from the weather via WeatherControlMachine, usually falling like rain, but things occasionally blew in.

'''Sam''': I mean, the clouds probably have water in them, which, uh, I guess is why you shot it up there in the first place.\\
'''Flint''': Right, right, that's why I, I did that... on purpose... right.\\
