* SpiritualAntithesis: To ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'', sort of. While it definitely had it's share of gross out jokes, the vulgarity and political incorrectness was nowhere near as anarchistic as ''Ren and Stimpy'', allowing for more situational comedy and straightforward plots.

* SubvertedKidsShow: Zig-zagged. While it had it's share of vulgarity, it wasn't necessarily ''in''appropriate for children, who could enjoy the funny visuals and cartoon animals. Most of the humor, however, was a satire of... well, "modern" society, exaggerating such shallow concepts as materialism, capitalism, big business, dating, and things that generally only people in the early twenties or older would really understand (the plot of a twentysomething guy learning to live on his own might make this the first cartoon to tackle the "quarter life crisis") and which will most likely go over kids' heads[[note]]Joe Murray began his career as a political cartoonist, so social satire was a familiar subject of his.[[/note]]. However, like fellow Nicktoon ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'', it's cult status came about from how much ''more'' it's young audience loved it when they grew up and finally got all of the jokes.
