* TakeThat: Heffer, to Filburt when they're fighting in "Wacky Delly": "Your cartoons aren't even funny enough to be on [[Creator/{{Freeform}} The Family Channel!"Channel]]!" [[note]]Heffer's kind of right- Fam didn't ever have much in the way of animation until Fox bought them out in the late 90s. They tended to focus on their original game shows, which tended to be quirky, [[NoBudget low budget]], or both- like ''Series/MastersOfTheMaze'', ''TabletopGame/TrivialPursuit'' with [[Series/TicTacDough Wink Martindale]], Creator/JayWolpert's ''Series/ShoppingSpree'', or ''[[Series/ShopTilYouDrop The New Shop Til You Drop]]''.[[/note]]
