* StepforwardSnarker: Andy can be this. He's not that snarky, but when he's bored he says things like "kill me now!".

* VillainProtagonist: Andy at his worst. Some of his pranks, such as when he convinced Jen she was becoming a dog, ultimately amount to psychological torture, but on Andy's side, he often doesn't know the joke will be ''that'' serious. There's a reason why the first theme song has the lyric "Started out as a prank, but then got way out of hand."

* TechnologyMarchesOn: A few of the pranks are quite dated to the show's [[TurnOfTheMillenium early 00s]] period:
** "Beat the Bomb" entire plot kicks off due to Danny mixing up audio tapes. Today it'd be quite easier to do it using a computer or a cell phone to play sound effects.
** "TeenDreamboats" is based on Andy fooling the entire town into thinking a fake popular band is going to play on stage at a festival. Suffice to say just a few years later anyone would first turn into searching the internet for a supposedly popular band.
** "A Match Made in East Gackle" has Lik and Leech fooled into sending romantic e-mails to each other. Over time instant messaging became more viable, making such a prank harder to pull off.
** "Food for Thought" has Andy trick each warring restaurant's owner into thinking their home country lost at a foosball championship. Not only the painstaking process of editing existing TV footage through using a dual VCR setup become obsolete through easy access to video editing on just any computer, spoofing TV signal through hacking into the antenna would also have to take different form due to the retirement of analog television.

* AprilFoolsPlot: "Gooey Chewies".



* BirthdayEpisode: Lori's birthday falls on April Fools' Day on "Gooey Chewies".



** In ''Busting'', Andy, while going through his PottyEmergency, does a lot of this. From "Bathroom, bathroom, please" to "Coming through, full bladder."
** In ''The Show Must Go On'', as a prank, some kindergarten students were singing the alphabet and pretending to hate school (long story). It mainly went "Q, R, and S. We're in distress." and "W, X, Z. Please set us free!" etc, etc, but one boy went "N, O, and P. I have to pee." Then he went "T, U, and V. I still have to pee." Justified, as he is just a little kid.

** Also happens with Danny in ''What's With Jean-Thomas?''. Andy was pretending to be his long lost brother to woo Lori, and when he'd had enough, he tried to make the fake brother have a girlfriend. No girls wanted him, due to a NoodleIncident known as The Prank, so he had to dress Danny in drag.
