It still takes place in the same universe as ''Family Guy'' and the characters have even crossed paths in his show on occasion. But like ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'', the series gradually stepped out of the shadow of its predecessors to find its own brand of humor, developing the title character as far more sympathetic than the other leads and using a more subtle comic style throughout. It has fewer cutaways, but they are still there, though, like ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' (and the GoldenAge ''Simpsons''), this show still has [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment bizarre asides from the plot]] and a lot of humor that [[BreakingTheFourthWall breaks the fourth wall]] and mocks [[BitingTheHandHumor the FOX Network]] and America at large.

* SelfDepreciation: For the intro of "Cleveland Live", the announcer goes on for a bit on how in 2004 some pothead loser bought a ''Family Guy'' DVD, then says very quickly and quietly "''American Dad'' is also a show", referencing how Fox tended to push it to the sidelines before it moved to TBS.

** Rallo ended up getting killed off screen in a couple episodes.
In one episode he ends up bleeding out from his own injuries while all of Stoolbend was getting into a rumble with a nearby town, and shows up as a ghost at the end. He says that things will be back to normal in the next episode. He's also told not to run with scissors, but as soon as he does, he ends up cutting his head off, walks back into the shot with him holding his head, and casually asks for assistance.

* StupidStatementDanceRemix: InUniverse, Rallo and Jr. make a youtube video of Cleveland having his frappaccino thrown in his face. "Frappe Attack" ended up getting over 500,000 hits in 20 minutes.

* NerdsSpeakKlingon: In "Love Rollercoaster", when a trio of nerds mock Junior's model rocket entry in the ScienceFair, he asks them what their entry is. The lead nerd tells him that they "translated ''Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail'' into Klingon, and were going to do a [[ShotforShotRemake shot-for-shot]], StopMotion [[ShotforShotRemake remake]] using vintage, new-in-box, eight-inch, Mego Creator/DCComics action figures", combining a lot nerd stereotypes into one.

** Roberta is a stand-in for Hayley on ''WesternAnimation/Ameri''; though, unlike Hayley, Roberta doesn't care about politics (though she did stand up for animal rights and sexual harassment in the workplace on two separate occasions), is still in high school, and isn't Hollywood Homely. However, she followed Hayley's footsteps in terms of getting less screentime as the series went on.

* BrokenAesop: The moral of the episode, "The Hurricane," was suggested to be the importance of keeping an open mind and respecting the view points of others. The problem is that the one who learned the lesson (Cleveland Junior) was the one being persecuted by the rest of his family for not believing in God like the rest of them. In fact the only time he does actually mock their beliefs is towards the episode's end and only after being threatened with damnation if he didn't change his views and even being blamed for Cleveland being stuck under a collapsed tree as punishment by God for Junior's atheism. And of course since Seth Macfarlane has a tendency to use his shows as a soapbox for his own views, the rest of the Family is depicted as being morons for having faith. Especially towards the end when Junior uses a system of pulleys to free Cleveland and the rest of them instead credit it to God answering their prayers.

** "Grave Danger" has Rallo dealing with three bullies harassing him and his friends at the kindergarten. While it is setup for the bullies to learn their lesson by stop bullying others, the children there call them names about their social standing, forcing Rallo to call his friends out on their behavior to the bullies, who then receive gifts from the others to earn sympathy. The bullying issue is entirely dropped out as they leave happily with their new stuff and Rallo's kiddie bike [[spoiler:before Rallo [[DisproportionateRetribution calls the police to arrest them since he can't forget they were annoying]].]]
