** ShownTheirWork: According to RobPaulsen's ''Talkin Toons Live'' special with David Feiss (the creator of this show) and CharlieAdler, Feiss actually knows Spanish (his first wife was originally from Spain), so all the Spanish Supercow speaks is accurate, including a line that has a vulgar double meaning, as it has the verb "coger" in it, which is notorious for a lot of mistranslations in Spanish-speaking countries [[note]]as not all Spanish dialects are alike. The Spanish spoken in a place like Venezuela is different than what you hear in Puerto Rico, Mexico, and Spain[[/note]]. In European Spanish, "coger" means "to pick up." In Mexican, Chilean, and Argentinian Spanish, it means "to have sex with" (usually translated as "fuck").

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: What do you expect from a show that's the Creator/CartoonNetwork {{Expy}} of ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'' (''and'' has some of ''Ren & Stimpy'''s animators and writers on board)? Some examples include:
** The episode "Horn Envy" is one big DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything about the length pubescent girls (and some women) will go to enhance their breasts (or, in this case, horns) so they can impress boys.
** The constant jokes and references to gender-bending and possible transsexuality are ''way'' too high for a typical kids' cartoon.
** The tribe in "Boneless Kite" are called the "As-Wi-Pe" tribe (It was actually ''spelled out'' as "asswi-pe" in the closed captioning).
** Not to mention how Cow's toys are named Piles ([[DontExplainTheJoke hemorrhoids]]) the Beaver, Crabs ([[DontExplainTheJoke pubic lice]] -- it was supposed to be "Craps," but CartoonNetwork's censors turned it down) the Warthog, and Manure (''[[UpToEleven literal]]'' [[DontExplainTheJoke crap past the radar]]) the Bear.
** The chicken farm jingle from "Part-time Job" includes the line, "Nobody [[FlippingtheBird flips a boid]], like Rear Admiral Floyd!"
** In "Sumo Cow", they actually got away with Chicken saying, "Give me the freaking money, loser!" when he begins bullying people.
** In two issues of the old ''Cartoon Network Presents'' comic books (they were the precursors to the later and better-known ''Cartoon Network Starring'' and ''Cartoon Cartoons'' comic books), the word "Hell" is slipped in, uncensored - in the story "Recycling Daze," Chicken, Flem, and Earl come to Red Guy's junk yard, where the sign reads, "We'll give you a hell of a deal;" meanwhile in the story "Mayhem on the Midway," Red Guy introduces Cerberus as, "The Three-Headed Hound of Hell
*** Lampshaded in the I Am Weasel episode "I.R. in Wrong Cartoon" where I.R. Baboon points out The Red Guy doesn't wear any pants and Weasel replies "Boy the stuff they get away with in cartoons these day is just disgusting!"

** Don't forget "Cow's Instincts...Don't It?" where herding seems to be treated similarly to puberty or menstruation the way that Cow talks about it, though Chicken's wording might have something to do with it.
-->'''Chicken:''' It's something that happens to all young cows when they reach a certain age. It's called a herding instinct.
-->'''Cow:''' Ohh! A herding instinct! Think I'll get one?
-->'''Chicken:''' Eventually when you start commiserating. ''He pronounces it similarly to "menstruating."''
-->'''Cow:''' I think I'm getting one now!

* UnusualEuphemism: In "Chicken In The Bathroom", Cow, Mom and Dad churn out a endless supply while informing Chicken of the mass PottyEmergency he is causing. Quite a few of those euphemisms sound less like needing to use the bathroom and more like needing to do [[ADateWithRosiePalms something else]], which is par for the course on this show.

Though the show ended in 1999, the title character were still frequently featured in advertising for the network. In addition, Chicken ended up being one of the most prominent non-host characters for the Cartoon Cartoon Fridays bumpers.

* OneCrazyNight: "The Babysitter" takes place in one night, in which Mom and Dad go out on the town, and leave Cow in charge of babysitting Chicken; after Mom and Dad have a happy time at the Sad Club, and return to see Cow is (in their perspective) a great babysitter, they leave on the spot for an extended overseas vacation.
** "Night of the Ed" deals with Dad deciding one night that the family needs a pet, and brings home a jackal, leaving Cow and Chicken home alone with the savage (albeit miniature) beast.

* WoundedHeroWeakerHelper: Exploited by the Red Guy as a ruse to expose Cow's SecretIdentity. He rings the doorbell, and Cow responds to see a Superman {{expy}} lying prone on her doorstep with a huge green rock embedded in his spine. The expy pleads for Cow's help to remove the kryptonite, but Cow defers, saying, "I'm just a widdle cow." She may have seen through Red Guy's hammy acting, or Cow may be TooDumbToFool.
