* JerkassWoobie: Uncle Rico. In the AnimatedAdaptation he is despised by pretty much by everyone. At the end of one episode is revealed that he is a very sad and lonely guy.

Added DiffLines:

* SoOkayItsAverage: Consensus is mixed like the movie it was based on. Also it didn't stand out much between the much revered ''WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers'' and the much reviled ''WesternAnimation/AllenGregory'' both airing around the time it debuted, the series was quietly cancelled after six episodes.

* NerdsAreSexy: Napoleon developed a ''huge'' bevy of fangirls. Enough that some newspapers and magazines ran articles about the phenomenon.

Added DiffLines:

* FollowTheLeader: After the success of the film, many TV commercials (notably candy commercials for Skittles and Trolli) tried to emulate the film's style by featuring absurd, deadpan humor and realistic-looking kids in late '70s - early '80s clothes.
