* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: Much like most of Cartoon Network's past and present offerings, this show is packed to the brim with a lot of ParentalBonus and GettingCrapPastTheRadar moments that confirm that Cartoon Network's censors are either really bad at their job or this is all a part of CartoonNetwork's plan for more risque programming outside of Creator/AdultSwim.

Added DiffLines:

* UncannyValley: Some of the characters that are animated in CGI can come across as this.

* CanonSue: The Grey Spy in ''Spy vs. Spy'' would always win whenever she appeared. In those strips, the Black and White Spies would [[FemmeFatale fall in love with her]], and out of respect for women, she had to beat both of them, but eventually, Prohias himself thought the concept was falling into this Trope, and she was PutOnABus. (She did appear later after other artists took over the strip.)



* GodModeSue: Fantabulaman.

* ShallowParody: Most of the time this is averted (See Above) Manga/{{Naru|to}}[[BeverlyHills90210 210]] is an example. The writers apparently only saw the first three episodes of ''Naruto''. "Why do all these ''Naruto'' fights happen off-screen?" The relationship between the Genin, which is similar to a group of high school students' interacting, is also skimmed over.
* SpecialEffectsFailure: The CGI, whenever it's used. This appears to be deliberate though.

** ''Beauty Tips with Megan Fox''. And not just the scene where [[spoiler: Megan Fox [[Film/{{Terminator}} turns out to be a cyborg]] ]], but her overall appearance makes her look like she crawled from the deepest trenches of the UncannyValley. The photo cut-out head and cartoon lips and eyebrows look really bizarre.

** The ''Cars'' parody with Lightning [=McQueen=] being crushed. For anyone who actually likes the movie ''Cars'', this may be too depressing. For those who have either never seen the movie, hated it, or loved it, but have a sick sense of humor, this is hilarious.

* RefugeInAudacity: The "You Can Never Win With A Bigot" feature, in which it's noted that bigots will respond to stereotypes being refuted by changing to others, stands out, as the writers admit in the Mad About the Seventies collection that they could never do that today.

* HilariousInHindsight: A parody ad for Cadillac back in 1960, showing a woman wearing an emblem of the car like a necklace to show off her status symbol. Who knew rappers would adopt the same style decades later?
