** Some fans would even extend this to season 8, particularly in the first half. Many felt bringing the cast into space added little to the show, instead simply turning it into a cleaner ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' or ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty.'' That said, the show's GrandFinale was met with widespread acclaim as a suitably epic and emotional send-off.

** Some fans would even extend this to season 8, particularly in which was where many accused the first half. Many show of running out of steam. Said fans felt bringing the cast into space ultimately added little to the show, instead simply turning it into a cleaner ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' or ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty.'' That said, the show's GrandFinale was met with widespread acclaim as a suitably epic and emotional send-off.

* SpiritualAdaptation: Can be considered as a cartoon made by either Creator/JuddApatow, Creator/SethRogen or Evan Goldberg as the concept of the episodes are similar their works such as ''Film/PineappleExpress'', ''Film/ThisIsTheEnd'', ''Film/{{Neighbors 2014}}'' and ''Film/TheInterview'', except this body of work [[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids is made for kids]] unlike the R-rated nature of the films. Plus, the show's stars Mordecai and Rigby looked like characters that can be played by Rogen and Creator/JamesFranco, who both have played the everyman buddy and amiable doofus much like Mordecai and Rigby in ''Pineapple Express'' and ''The Interview''. Also, the character of Muscle Man can be considered an {{expy}} of comic actor Danny [=McBride=] (who appeared in ''Pineapple Express'' and ''This Is the End''). It's even further helped that some of the actors who voice-acted on the show had actually worked with the aforementioned filmmakers ranging from Creator/LindaCardellini, the voice of C.J., who appeared opposite Rogen in Apatow's ''Series/FreaksAndGeeks'' to Ed Begley, Jr., the voice of Mordecai's dad, who had acted in ''Pineapple Express'' to even Creator/DavidKoechner, the voice of Principal Dean, who acted opposite Rogen in ''Film/The40YearOldVirgin'', ''Film/AnchormanTheLegendOfRonBurgundy'', ''Film/DrillbitTaylor'', an episode of ''Freaks and Geeks'' and ''Film/{{Paul}}'' and worked for Apatow on the former four projects, ''Film/TalladegaNightsTheBalladOfRickyBobby'' and ''Film/Anchorman2TheLegendContinues''.

** The development of Mordecai and Margaret's relationship has been ''agonizingly'' slow. After four seasons of Mordecai making minimal effort to take their relationship beyond friendship, Margaret finally gives him a kiss when he sees her off at the airport. So they're finally together, right? Nope, next episode involving them says that Mordecai is still considered to be in the "friend zone". At the end, they share a mutual kiss, and the next episode has Margaret introducing him to the rest of her family. But "Steak Me Amadeus"'s plot revolves around Mordecai asking Maragret to be his girlfriend and getting heartbroken when Margaret shoots him down. Given everything that had happened prior, it was pretty easy to think that ''she already was''.

* ShitCartoon: The animation was actually more fluid in ''older episodes''. It is played straight in that the character models are consistent throughout an episode, unlike the older episodes, particularly season 1, which were prone to Shit issues.

** Benson really had a moment of this in "Busted Cart" when he lets Mordecai and Rigby really have it when they once again screw up -- and it's not the usual "Do this or you're fired!" order. It's a sincerely frustrated rant about how Mordecai and Rigby don't take anything seriously and that it tears him up inside.

While "The Naive Man from Lolliland" is safe for family viewing (the one use of the word "hell" wouldn't faze most viewers), "2 in the AM-PM" isn't -- at least by Cartoon Network's already selective standards.

** Benson, especially in season 1. However, his Scrappy status has been declining due to a few sympathetic backstories about his life and progressively [[Main/TookALevelInKindness taking multiple levels in kindness]] as the series has progressed.
