* DarkerAndEdgier / DenserAndWackier: Manages to be both simultaneously. Season 1 took fairly realistic, lighthearted SliceOfLife plots and contrasted them with the surreal, wacky world of the show. From season 2 onwards, however, the humor got much darker, [[Radar/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball raunchier]], and less subdued, Gumball TookALevelInJerkass, and an actual story arc involving a genuinely dangerous villain and the idea that [[spoiler: the uinverse is sentient and controlling the world]] emerged. At the same time, however, the episode plots became increasingly surreal and nonsensical, [[NoFourthWall the fourth wall started to disappear,]] and [[BizarroEpisode Bizarro Episodes]] started to become the norm. The end result of this is the show [[TropesAreTools becoming far funnier.]]

* [[AgelessBirthdayEpisode Ageless Birthday]]: Despite Masami, Sussie, and Nicole all having episodes dedicated to their birthdays, they never seem to get any older. In additon, Gumball's and Penny's birthdays have been mentioned in passing, but both are still twelve.



* ConspicuousCG: The show's MediumBlending includes a lot of CG character and objects. While it isn't any more out of place than anything else, but occasionally it will be out of sync with the 2D objects or characters. For instance, in "The Poltergeist" Mrs. Robinson put something in the mailbox and [[SpecialEffectsFaliure while her hands moved and a sound was made the mailbox stayed closed]].

to:

* ComicBookTime: The show is nearing its sixth and final season, yet none of the characters have aged a single day. This becomes even more apparent when on considers that both Christmas and Halloween have been celebrated twice on the show. Despite this, some of the more fleshed-out characters have gone through character growth throughout the seasons.

* SlapstickKnowsNoGender: Gradually comes into effect over the course of the series. Early on, the physical comedy was far more often toward the male cast, with Nicole and Ms. Simian being the occasional exception. Around the second season, slapstick becomes more likely to be applied to anyone regardless of gender. Sarah and Teri seem especially prone to this- within the first couple episodes of season three, both have been maimed, melted, burned, and/or partially eaten.

** In the second episode, when asked if they are 18, Gumball says him and Darwin are 10 and 8. One episode later, Penny says her and Gumball are both 12.

* YouFailEconomicsForever: PlayedForLaughs in one episode where Larry goes on strike. Since he worked most of the jobs in the town simultaneously, within 20 minutes [[RidiculousFutureInflation Lots of Inflation]] kicks in and 4 pizzas cost $9,000 dollars, and $100 is worth next to nothing, and the whole town collapses.

** Gumball getting covered in some kind of dirty substance. Every time it happens he's visibly annoyed but always ends up clean by the next part for no reason.
