* DesignatedHero: A common complaint about the series is that, all too often, while Hank is usually a well-meaning person, his characterization as a stereotypical middle class Conservative Bible Belter with rather SkewedPriorities is not played for comedy (of the "look at what a dumbass this guy is/can be" variety), but as something to be respected and admired. There are many episodes in which Hank comes off as, frankly, a bigoted self-righteous Jerkass and yet viewers are still supposed to be on his side.

** Big Tex, the iconic 50 foot cowboy statue at the Texas State Fairgrounds plays a significant role in "Girl You'll be a Giant Soon". In 2012, Big Tex caught fire and was completely destroyed (a new Big Tex was built the following year), making this episode a little sad to watch if you're a Texan or a frequent Texas State Fair goer.

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: While not as [[ComedicSociopathy cruel]] or [[SadistShow sadistic]] as its competing Fox shows, the series has its fair share of mean-spirited nastiness. From Hank being a stubborn stick-in-the-mud to Peggy being the KnowNothingKnowItAll she is, the series' cast of characters aren't exactly people you wish they exist in real life.

From Hank being a stubborn stick-in-the-mud to Peggy being the KnowNothingKnowItAll she is, the series' cast of characters aren't exactly people you wish they exist in real life. One example is "What Makes Bobby Run" where Bobby became the school mascot of Tom Landry Middle school. At first, he was ecstatic and happy, until he discovers that there's the school's tradition to have the mascot beaten by the rival school every time Bobby's school wins. Bobby, understandably [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere runs away]] and was labelled as a DirtyCoward by the entire school. To rub salt on his wound, Hank scolds Bobby for "ruining tradition" instead of comforting him. At this point, nearly no one in the show is sympathetic anymore.

* MisaimedMarketing: ''Very'' early in the show's run, they tried to cross promote the show on Creator/FoxKids with "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hpmw9azzLDI Fox Kids Heads for the Hills]]", where special bumpers and promos showed the characters interacting with various FK characters- like Hank convincing the WesternAnimation/SilverSurfer to switch to propane power for his surfboard. Presumably, this was a misguided attempt to promote it based off the popularity of ''Beavis and Butt-head'' with young people. Also, this was one of the last times Fox's primetime lineup ever really interacted with the FK lineup- it was mainly untenable at this point, due to half of Fox's affiliates in major markets (specifically, station that had switched due to the DisasterDominoes that ensued when Fox nabbed the NFL- see that page for ''that'' mess) not wanting to air the block, specifically the weekday lineup, because they didn't want cartoons leading into their newscasts. As a result, depending on where you lived in the 90s, Fox Kids wasn't likely to be on the Fox station- it'd be on a WB, UPN, or indie station. So cross-promotion became rarer as an aftereffect of that.
