** In the episode ''And Fan Boy Is His Name'', Freakazoid tries to bargain with Fan Boy to leave him alone by offering an autograph picture of Creator/StanLee and then both dismissing him as someone they never heard of. Fan Boy only leaves Freakazoid when he finds Creator/MarkHamill signing autographs. Now, when you think about it, the routine was funny in and of itself in the 90's because Stan Lee created MarvelComics, the biggest rival of Warner Brothers owned Creator/DCComics, and Franchise/StarWars movies were distributed by Creator/TwentiethCenturyFox, one of Warner Brother's oldest rivals. However, by 2012, both Marvel AND Star Wars were acquired by [[Creator/{{Disney}} Warner's biggest rival of all]]!

* FridgeBrilliance: Why is stone-serious, emotionally blank Sgt. Cosgrove friends with someone as off-the-wall nutty as Freakazoid? Because Freakaoid has [[LargeHam enough personality for the both of them]]!

* SpiritualAdaptation: While he has made appearances in animated shows, this is probably the closest we'll get to an AnimatedAdaptation of ComicBook/{{Deadpool}}.

* BaseBreaker: Steff. Some fans like her, others ''can't '''stand''' her'' (mainly because of her BitchInSheepsClothing and LovesMyAlterEgo attitude).

** In a show this nutty, there's bound to be some. Most notably, a CutawayGag cutting to some live-action StockFootage.

Added DiffLines:

* EndingFatigue: As noted on the audio commentary, there are several points where "Handman" could've ended, but the short kept going anyway. Tom Ruegger (who wrote it) copped to this trope, but Paul Rugg sincerely believed it made the short funny and that it freed them up to be as silly as possible in later episodes.
-->'''Paul Rugg:''' If [[Creator/StevenSpielberg Steven]] said this was okay, we were golden.

Fastforward and the internet, while used for information, is a very screwy place indeed.
