** The two rounded drips of cheese on Pizza Steve's lower point look an awful lot like a scrotum.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: In "Tiger Trails", Uncle Grandpa and Caleb are battling the Evil Wizard in outer space, when U.G. notices Giant Realistic Flying Tiger is missing, so he goes looking for her, while the last known mention of Caleb is in a BrickJoke where he's still fighting the Evil Wizard by himself while waiting for U.G. to return...

* ThrowTheDogABone: The one time one of Beary Nice and Hot Dog Person's adventures works out well for the latter is when they go to the gym and he ends up using an overly-complicated exercise machine (a la what Rocko uses in the ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'' episode "No Pain, No Gain") that leaves him quite muscular.

** In "Uncle Grandpa Sings the Classics", one song (titled ''Mr. Gus is Green'') has Uncle Grandpa dressed as Creator/GGAllin. How is this radar-dodging? Allin was a ''genuine drugged-up psychopath'' whose lyrics expressed themes of misogyny, pedophilia, blasphemy, and racism, not to mention his outlandish live performances, which often featured transgressive acts such as coprophagia (read: ''[[Main/{{Squick}} eating feces]]''), self-mutilation, and physically assaulting audience members (which got him arrested more than once). He promised for years he would commit suicide on stage, but ultimately died a heroin overdose. How a reference to Allin made it past the censors is beyond us.

The character then went through a couple of years of DevelopmentHell, only to reemerge on an episode of the equally surreal ''WesternAnimation/SecretMountainFortAwesome'' (also by Browngardt). When SMFA got axed Browngardt decided to switch gears and focus back on Uncle Grandpa, expanding its cast of characters and retooling it as a VarietyShow, with almost each episode backed up by a short B-story that sometimes given [[ADayInTheLimelight other characters created by the crew their chance to shine]]. He succeeded, and the show eventually premiered in September 2013 much to the delight of fans of the original shorts. Even UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation purist Creator/JohnKricfalusi seems to have been pumped for the show [[http://www.cartoonbrew.com/tv/john-k-draws-uncle-grandpa-76314.html judging by these sketches]].
