Your father passed on a softer punch.

** The pilot episode featured Bob going to a Tel-Evangelist with a pitch for a call-in show about daily miracles - upon being told that there'd be no money in it, Bob is promptly kicked out.

* MoralGuardians: After an assload of blasphemy complaints in the United States, NBC canceled it after only four episodes, and it was not shown again in the U.S. until a decade later on Creator/AdultSwim. The whole series was aired overseas earlier. (Funnily enough, the final episode of the series has Bob start his own group of moral guardians which descends in bickering; the moral of that story was KevinBacon is [[{{Film/Footloose}} a really good dancer]].)

* FriendlyEnemy: Bob and The Devil, [[ExaggeratedTrope to the point where they could hardly even be called enemies]], only being considered as such due to the Devil's hatred of humans in general. Andy even refers to the Devil as Bob's friend in one episode.

Added DiffLines:

* TheChosenOne: Played with; Bob was chosen to prove humanity's worth to God, but he was chosen by the Devil specifically because it was assumed that he would fail miserably.

* BumblingDad: 90 percent of the time, Bob has no idea what to do with his family

to:

* BumblingDad: 90 percent of the time, Bob has no idea what to do with his familyfamily. In one episode, Bob worries that God, who has temporarily made himself human, is taking over his life; he's mildly concerned about God taking over his role in his workplace and home, but is far more angry about God taking over his baseball team, because that's the only thing he was any good at anyway.

* GodIsFlawed: Some episodes portray God as less "perfect being" and more, for lack of a better word, "human". Examples include the weariness and disappointment he feels in the first episode, having someone "accidentally" crushed under a tree in order to get onto Bob's baseball team, His relationship trouble with a human, and His estranged relationship with His fallen angel creation.

The show touched on many family issues, including death, puberty, and bullying, among others. The show caused a good deal of controversy due to its presumed mocking of the Christian faith, a largely inaccurate accusation leveled almost entirely by people who had never actually seen -- and indeed ''refused'' to watch -- the show (like they did with ''Film/MontyPythonsLifeOfBrian'' and ''TheLastTemptationOfChrist''). Ironically, the show's creator was an ordained clergyman with a favorable attitude towards the faith. It eventually made it to DVD in the US, several overseas markets did air the full series, and in 2011, the show's full run made its way into the Creator/AdultSwim lineup.
