** Any time someone puts Marjorie Dawes in her place.

* SubbingVersusDubbing: In Austria, Little Britain is shown with subtitles. In Germany, it's dubbed. '''But:''' the dubbing is done by comedians Oliver Welke and Oliver Kalkofe, who used to have a similar radio show.

to:

* TheScrappy: Pretty much any character introduced after series 1 has had a pretty frigid reception compared to the series 1 characters, due to the series increasing dependence on shock-humour. Carol Beer may be the only exception, as her brand of comedy isn't as vulgar.

* TheWoobie: Lou. He's little more than a slave to Andy and has at one point had to risk his life for the ungrateful lout. [[http://www.starstore.com/acatalog/to-do-l-little-britain.jpg Here's his to-do list.]] Check out the last line.
** The fatfighters take a lot of abuse. They stand up to Majorie and leave in the series 2 finale, but are back in series 3 because they can't lose weight on their own.

* DudeNotFunny: Increasingly cheap laughs as the series went on.
** One specific example is a deleted scene from season three, where Linda makes fun of a student who only has one arm. The actor playing him was indeed disabled, and while he himself was perfectly okay with the joke, Lucas and Walliams were very uncomfortable about it in retrospect ("It's one thing to stick some fake hair on a girl and say she has a moustache, but this one went that little bit too far"). Depending on your perception of the duo, this could be a case of EvenEvilHasStandards.
** Walliams and Lucas also admit to cutting a sex scene between Jason and Nan (intended for series two) because they agreed it was too offensive for broadcast.

* DeaderThanDisco: A borderline case. In the early-mid 2000s the series was very popular, and many will still admit to liking (albeit probably not ''loving'') the radio series and the first TV series. However, everything else after that now tends to be regarded as total crap, and a major contributor to the blacklash against the classic BritCom format in later in that decade.

* OverusedRunningGag: A complaint that was always destined to arise given that the series is almost entirely made of them.
