* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: As the series progressed, there was less and less focus on Chance and Jake's job as mechanics. In season one, they could be seen repairing cars, towing people, etc. Apart from one scene of them towing a car in "A Bright and Shiny Future" (which they ''ditch'' to rush off and fight the Pastmaster), their car repair business was never mentioned again in season two. The only repairing they're shown doing after that is on the Turbokat. The even get rid of their tow truck entirely in "When Strikes Mutilor," and even ''it'' is never seen again, despite being a pretty important part of their business.
** It would've come up again in the unfinished episode "Succubus!", wherein they're seen repairing Callie's car, though.
** Although she is highly competent, supposed Deputy Mayor Briggs is almost never seen doing anything that an actual deputy mayor would do, instead being treated (both in universe and out) more like a glorified personal assistant to Manx, at one point even preparing a press release for him, something a press secretary would do, and on more than one occasion writing his speeches for him.
** Twice it is said Burke and Murray report to Commander Feral about what Chance and Jake are up to ("We'll tell Commander Feral you sent your love!"), but this is never seen. Instead, the duo just pointlessly harass and bully them.

The series' attempts at bigger action came too soon for many people, and the series took criticism for its violent content. Even before that, the show underwent extensive ExecutiveMeddling during its first season, forcing the creators to insert several additional bits that could sometimes clash with a current darker storyline. This changed in the second season, since the first season's good ratings enabled the series to get an AnimationBump (and a slight makeover) that resulted in a DarkerAndEdgier style which proved to be a better fit for the show. The show was cancelled after its second season, when it was one of Hanna-Barbera's highest rated syndicated shows, and there were three unfinished episodes in production (as well as established outlines for up to seven more episodes), which all got left hanging. The show has a very strong cult following that continues to this day, and [=DVDs=] are available from the Warner Archive program.
