* LoveItOrHateIt: Either this show was a good show that never got its due or a crummy show that signaled the beginning of the end for great Nickelodeon programming. A lot of articles about 1990s nostalgia firmly place this show as the former (usually by pointing out that ''Spongebob'' and ''The Fairly Oddparents'' are worse than this show), but online reviews seen on [=IMDb=] and jumptheshark.com have nothing good to say about this show.

* AccidentalInnuendo: "Work Force," with the ones that stuff prizes into the cereal boxes are "prize stuffers" and those that lick the boxes closed are "box lickers." [[FreudWasRight Think about it.]]

* JerkassWoobie: Cat, though sometimes he's just TheWoobie.

Cat, though sometimes he's just TheWoobie.



** 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.



* TheWoobie: '''Dog '''. While most of the time, he's a cheerful and happy go lucky sort of guy, whenever he gets hit with BreakTheCutie, he gets hit. Hard. He's been laughed at by the entire town of Nearberg for being a failure hero (Dog The Mighty), worked to the point of hypothermia in a sled dog race (Mush Dog Mush), almost sold off as a freak show attraction by his own brother after contacting a disease (Dog's Strange Condition), bullied by mailmen while in a depressed state (Fistful Of Mail), driven to the brink of paranoia (Safety Dog), spent an entire episode thinking he was allergic to his own brother (Sneezy Dog) and has been cheated and lied to several times by his own brother. He also came dangerously close to crossing the DespairEventHorizon in the Great Parents Mystery special. Basically, any time Dog looks emotionally hurt or starts shedding tears, it's enough to just want to reach into your screen and cuddle the poor pooch to make him his happy self again. Someone, please give poor Dog a hug!

** Cat can never catch a break. Even though he deserves a lot of it because of how mean spirited he can be, some of the abuse he takes goes too far.

* AwesomeMusic: The theme song, which is often considered the best part of the show. Even people who ''hate'' the show agree that it's good.

* FridgeBrilliance: The third line of the theme song nearly 100% references their adoptive parents.
* FridgeHorror: How does [=CatDog=] go to the bathroom?
** Some episodes imply there's an anus in the center of their body. [[{{Squick}} Which is still quite unsettling]], though considerably less so.
** FridgeBrilliance: That's roughly where their respective hindquarters would be if they were a regular cat and dog, so it makes sense.
** Cat has nine lives. Dog only has one. What will happen when Dog dies? Will Cat have to drag his brother's dead body around for the rest of his eight lives?
*** Really, unless they [[TogetherInDeath die at the same time]], one of them is going to be dragging his dead brother. Or, more likely givenů erů potential consequences, the body might be surgically removed.

** 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.
