In September 2016, series creator Ben Bocquelet [[https://twitter.com/benbocquelet/status/773256731908530177 confirmed that the sixth season will be his last season]], but that [[https://twitter.com/benbocquelet/status/773572339883794434 this is not necessarily the end of the show]].

* CrapsaccharineWorld: On the one hand, Elmore is a colorful world filled with cartoon characters animated in different styles where the impossible is possible. On the other hand, Elmore is pretty much an exaggerated take on 21st century American society, where the [[SuckySchool education system is a joke]], TheWorldIsAlwaysDoomed (often because of The Wattersons' antics), crime is freely committed by anyone and everyone and the PoliceAreUseless, and the [[JerkassBall jerkass]] and IdiotBall get tossed around with surprising frequency. The only differences between this and the real world is that ToonPhysics enhances all of these problems and there's a surprising amount of BlackComedyCannibalism (since most of the people in Elmore are based on food products, like Banana Joe, Sarah G. Lato, Anton the slice of toast, and the town's police force).

* ForgotToMindHead: One episode has Gumball communing with the newly-gotten fish under the kitchen table. It is there that Gumball deduces that the fish is intelligent, at which he jumps for joy. Naturally, Gumball knocks his noggin on the table's underside. When the fish tries to speak to Gumball, the excited kitten is ready to jump for joy again, but this time, dons a helmet before doing so.

** The Copycat is one against "Miracle Star", the blatant [[TheMockbuster Chinese rip-off]] of Gumball.

* NatureIsNotNice: The Forest of Doom from is a dangerous place filled with hostile monsters, [[KillerRabbit including the squirrels]], that has managed to nearly kill Gumball and Darwin every time they've entered it. It even looks like a skull from the sky.

* SeesawCatapult: One episode sees Gumball waiting at one end of a seesaw while a series of [[BatmanGambit Batman Gambits]] transpire into a RubeGoldbergDevice that Gumball believes will launch him over the schoolyard fence to freedom. The good news: the sequence happens exactly as planned. The bad news: the actual launch from the seesaw has gone hilariously wrong.

* BlackComedyBurst: For a series which takes place in a brightly-colored, whimsical world were anything can happen, a lot of the humor and situations in episodes (particularly after season one) are hilarious because of how sick, cynical, or loaded with unfortunate implications they are (but not in such a way that it becomes ''FamilyGuy''-esque).
