!!YMMV from the film:

!!YMMV from the cartoon: * BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The "Korean ending" from episode 4. * HilariousInHindsight: ** In the first episode, one of the phases of the Quicker Stop's world domination is [[WesternAnimation/RobotChicken robot chickens]]. Especially since {{AdultSwim}} would later rerun all six episodes. ** The ending to [[spoiler: Episode 2]] in light of Film/ClerksII. *** Doubles as HeartwarmingInHindsight. ** In a TakeThat against Creator/SethMacFarlane, a bad cartoonist is shown taking advice from a book purportedly written by [=MacFarlane=], being inspired to write a cartoon that would send its cast to ''Series/GilligansIsland'' and then "make gay jokes about them." Cut to a few years later, a ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' episode [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9h7ss-qRtyw actually did this]]. ** Judge Reinhold would later play as himself starring as a judge again in ''Series/ArrestedDevelopment''. ** Might also be HarsherinHindsight depending on your view, but the show calling UPN "America's #1 Network" becomes this after it faded into mediocrity and eventually shut down in 2006. * TooGoodToLast: Canceled after only six episodes were made. * TheWeirdAlEffect: The parody episode of ''Series/TheSecretDiaryOfDesmondPfeiffer'' featured in the show's pilot is better known than the actual show it's parodying.

** The customer who asks "In a row?" when Dante finds out about his girlfriend's sexual history.

** Meta: Jeff Anderson refused to read the list of porno titles in front of the mother and child, so the scene was shot in close up with [[ReactionShot Reaction Shots]] added. JuddApatow, considered to be Kevin Smith's SpiritualSuccessor, has since done numerous movies where characters shamelessly curse in front of children.

** Though due to the film being made for only $30,000 (the soundtrack cost more than the film.) Smith had to use one actor for four roles, plus some weren't professional actors (including Smith) themselves, so this was bound to happen, though the film is mostly NarmCharm in a way.

* CrossesTheLineTwice: A meta example: Jeff Anderson was uncomfortable filming the scene in which Randall reads off a list of increasingly vulgar list of porno films to his distributor in front of a mother and her child (notice how all the shots of him reading the list are in close up) and asked Kevin Smith to maybe remove one or two of the worst ones. Smith responded by taking the list and ''adding three more titles!!!''

** On the commentary featured on the DVD, [[Creator/KevinSmith the director]] says that the Soul Asylum video on the DVD is the [[Film/ClerksII closest thing to a sequel]] that the film would ever get.

** Miramax didn't ''want'' Jay on the poster, they thought he was "weird looking" (they had the same problem with Universal when making Mallrats and they wanted to replace Jay with a "real" actor), which is funny considering he would go on to be the lead in ''Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back'' and many, many people find Jay very attractive.
