This series provides examples of:
* {{Blaxploitation}}: Many clips the show uses derive from the genre.
* CrowningMomentOfFunny: Every episode contained at least three.
* {{Expy}}: Jackie Potato is [[WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory Dexter]] with the {{Blaxploitation}} level and stereotypes turned UpToEleven.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Even if it was aimed towards older audiences, it was still aired on a children's network. So it's pretty weird seeing the constant bleeped "swearing" all over the place.
* IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming: Usually in the form of combining a Hanna-Barbera character with an outside reference. e.g. Captain Majors Lonely Hearts Club Band
* RunningGag: One of the chief sources of humor from the show.
* StockFootage: Many clips are reused in different episodes.
