** As the series went on, [[ContinuityCreep more and more episodes would be referenced]] (including episodes in which everyone died) or they would show a ContinuityCavalcade every now and then. The last few episodes had the closest thing to a linear continuity as the series got. For instance, Sharko was the focal point of the one and only storyarc in the entire series.

* '''Jodene Sparks''', the scheming radio operator who never leaves his chair, even when scuba-diving. It's not entirely clear if he's actually chair-bound, just really lazy or pulling off a scam by claiming a disability. He plays the OnlySaneMan from time to time, but being criminally insane stops him from doing so as frequently as Quinn.

Added DiffLines:

* UrExample: This show is basically a prototypical example of TheAbridgedSeries, as it splices parts of ''WesternAnimation/SeaLab2020'' with a GagDub, exaggerating the characters' personalities and generally parodying the original, although it was produced with the permission of the owners of the original show.
