** Dog; to some he's a NiceGuy [[FanOfTheUnderdog who cares about Cat]], to others he's just as bad as the people who abuse them.

* DesignatedVillain: Cat, when he's not being [[DependingOnTheWriter unspeakably cruel.]] Multiple times is treated as cruel for trying to make Dog behave or just give him a moment doing what he wants. In most cases, Dog acts like a {{Hypocrite}} and sulks about Cat being inconsiderate until he gets things his way, and continues ignoring Cat's well being entirely. In all cases, the IdiotHoudini trumps pushy social climber.

** TheWoobie: Both Cat and Dog are this in The Great Parent Mystery. Dog is confident that they will find their long lost parents, but when those attempts are futile, you just HAVE to feel bad for him. Cat as well, to an extent, as he has lost all hope in ever finding them.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: ''The Great Parent Mystery''. It had a lot of build up to it, and generated some interest into the identity of [=CatDog's=] parents. [[spoiler: Only it turns out that the [[SarcasmMode big]] [[TheUnreveal reveal]] was that we get to see [=CatDog's=] ''adoptive'' parents.]] One could imagine a few people being annoyed by this.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: This can be said of the Ingrid Twins who seemed to be set up as love interests to the titular characters with similar implied sibling dynamic. Their appearances are scarce however where you can count their total appearances on one hand.

** Cliff of the Greasers, as well. Shriek is more of a BaseBreaker, as she has a few good moments with Dog, and Lube averts this, due to having a few episodes in which he is not an antagonist (and a lot of other instances of being too stupid and ineffectual to be malicious otherwise). Cliff, however, is just a bully (though to compensate, he arguably has the most frequent moments as TheChewToy).

* ValuesDissonance: One of Winslow's lines directed toward Cat, which goes "How 'bout I sock you right in the puss[[note]]As in 1940s slang for "face"[[/note]], ''Puss!''[[note]]As in general slang for cat[[/note]]". They could get away with it in the 90s, but given the term's change in usage over the years, it's a miracle that this line was able to stay in on reairings.

Added DiffLines:

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: In "The Island" Cat and Dog get sucked into a street sweeper. We are then given a colorless dark void that Cat refers to as "the eye of the sweeper" where CatDog and much of the garbage that was sucked up is spinning around in a circle. In the next scene they are somehow shown to be back on the island again.

** ReplacementScrappy: Lola came along a lot later in the series and many original fans found her not the best fit. She was very over the top in her first episode Sweet and Lola. It also appeared to original fans that she was replacing Winslow, given often when she was in an episode with CatDog, Winslow was not.
