* ArtisticLicenseBiology: Cows (like most anything else that lactates) don't flaunt large udders or produce milk unless they've recently been pregnant. Cow, despite being a 7 year old girl, does both. The implications would be deeply unpleasant if this weren't the kind of show that prides itself on making a total lack of sense.

* CountingToPotato: Uses this quite often, considering almost all of the characters have some CloudCuckoolander in them. Some more specific example:
-->''Red Guy is trying to expose Super Cow''

** ShownTheirWork: According to RobPaulsen's ''Talkin Toons Live'' special with David Feiss (the creator of this show) and Creator/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").

* Creator/HannaBarbera

to:

* Creator/HannaBarberaCreator/HannaBarbera: The second-to-last show to be produced by the studio, the final one being ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls''.


Added DiffLines:

* NoIndoorVoice: Subverted with The Red Guy, who's voice osculates between this and TranquilFury. Similarly, Mom and Dad, while they don't speak in screams, rarely speak gently.


Added DiffLines:

* WorldOfHam: Literally and figuratively. Not only is there an abundance of melodramatic acting, with [[NoIndoorVoice characters randomly screaming for no reason]], but meat byproducts are a running theme.

* ArtEvolution: While the show was always pretty well animated (for a crudely animated show made on the heels of ''Ren and Stimpy'''s popularity in the early 1990s), as the series progressed the color palette became richer and the line work was stronger. Compare the look of Season 1 and the look of Season 4 and you'll see the difference.
** Both Season 3 and 4 are very consistent, Season 2 is like a transition season: the first handful of episodes look like a slightly improved version of Season 1, while the rest of the season better resembles the following two.

mostly consistent, Season 2 is like a transition season: but the first handful of episodes look like a slightly improved version of Season 1, while evolution was definitely noticeable. The pilot was much more crudely drawn but the rest animation was also more fluid, as David Feis animated it by himself, and had a darker palette. When it went to series, the drawings and color models (and some of the season better resembles humor) were cleaned up and over the following two.course of the series got tighter and richer, respectively, all while still retaining it's inherently "ugly" look.
