Added DiffLines:

* CrossesTheLineTwice: Zoe poking Wanda [[EyeScream in the eye]] with a tongue depressor, trying to amputate her, and giving her a shot in the butt while playing Doctor? Terrible. Zoe commenting it means she wins? Hysterical!

* EnfantTerrible: All of the kids have their moments but middle child and only boy Hammie really sticks out. He intentionally seeks out destructive activities, goes out of the way to prank Zoe (though she dishes it right back at him), grosses out anyone in range of him, pesters people constantly, and doesn't think twice about the consequences. Zoe is starting to branch out of this stage and Wren is still too young to settle firmly into it.



* BrokenBase: Some people who weren't familiar with the strip thought it was a decent show in it's own right, while others that grew up with the strip disliked it for how much it changed the story to the point where it barely even resembled the original strip.

* TheyJustDidntCare: Let this be a lesson to all TV executives out there: Adapting a family-friendly comic strip with a huge fanbase, making it a HotterAndSexier ''Simpsons'' clone, shoehorning in a new cast who [[SpotlightStealingSquad takes the lion's share of the plot at the MacPhersons' expense]], making Zoe a baby, even though she was a toddler in the strip at the time and Hammie had just been born, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking putting it on a mediocre channel like The WB]] is '''''NOT''''' going to win over audiences.

Added DiffLines:

* HarsherInHindsight: In a couple early strips, Wanda was shown to be a fan of Mel Gibson (or rather, [[MrFanservice his buns]]). Obviously, this was before Gibson's first anti-Semetic rant incident.

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: The animated series may never be released on DVD for two reasons: 1) It's not beloved enough for fans to demand a DVD release, and 2) The theme song is a real song ("It's All Been Done" by the BarenakedLadies), which means it'll be [[ClumsyCopyrightCensorship edited to avoid paying licensing fees]] (like what happened with ''MarriedWithChildren'' when they replaced FrankSinatra's "Love and Marriage" with an upbeat, instrumental clone of that song).

* AudienceAlienatingPremise: Unlike the strip, the show was fused with more crass humor and language aimed squarely at older audiences, but this seemed to turn off fans of the actual comic, and the show didn't have much of an audience to grab outside of that fanbase.
