* DenserAndWackier: Especially when compared to most other shows on Cartoon Network nowadays (with the exception of ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo''). On the show itself, most of the later episodes are a lot more focused on wacky adventures than Uncle Grandpa helping kids.

Okay, so what happens when you take the zany artwork of Don Martin-era MAD, throw in visual gags and slapstick that would make The Golden Age animators shed tears of pride, add a spoonful of heavy metal, and then contaminate the batch with [[WidgetSeries large portions of pure]], [[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs undiluted weirdness?]]

[[OnceAnEpisode A typical plot]] would start with Uncle Grandpa traveling in his [[DrivesLikeCrazy RV like a madman]], usually crashing into the homes of disgruntled youths. To them Uncle Grandpa is nothing but a [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass bumbling nuisance]] in rainbow suspenders and an [[BagOfHolding insanely portable fannypack... ahem, 'Belly Bag']], but it's only when [[HilarityEnsues events start to blow out of proportion]] (usually the result of his attempts to win them over) that the LetsGetDangerous side of Uncle Grandpa springs into action. Together with the help of a pizza slice, a green lizard man and a [[LionsAndTigersAndHumansOhMy giant realistic flying tiger]] (again, don't ask), he and his young companion-of-the-week embroil in an epic battle, and once the day has been saved, our protagonist has gained a great deal of respect for their Uncle Grandpa, only to find that he has [[ButNowIMustGo already left the scene]], ready to spread his magic upon the lives of other unsuspecting folk:

** "The Grampies" at the end of "Pizza Eve" could be seen as a Take That toward Nickelodeon and their Kids' Choice Awards, with Uncle Grandpa managing to sweep every single category (like ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' often does, leading to rumors of rigging), including "Best ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' Episode", as well as how Nickelodeon often treats of their shows that aren't Spongebob or some other CashCowFranchise, as Uncle Grandpa informs all the characters in the audience (all of them existing CN characters) that their shows have been cancelled.
