* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Does Kramer have UsefulNotes/AspergersSyndrome? Even though he is unemployed and generally bumbles his way through life, he does display signs of intelligence throughout the series, particularly of the GeniusDitz / IdiotSavant variety (many of his business ideas and inventions are pretty clever). Moreover, he doesn't seem to understand the norms of social behavior or even general human behavior; he has no sense of tact (as evidenced by telling a woman she looks pregnant, and another that she should get a nose job), he's physically clumsy, he has odd tics and other repetitive behaviors, and he often doesn't pick up on Jerry's sarcasm. It's a wonder he has friends at all, let alone several girlfriends - but then again, he is the KavorkaMan.

** The show is known for being filled with ''Superman'' references (To the point that there was an urban legend that there was one in every episode). Kramer's attorney Jackie Childs would later play ''Martian Manhunter'' in the Superman-themed series ''Smallville'' and Larry would later star alongside future Superman Henry Cavill in ''Whatever Works''.

** At one point, Kramer was so popular that the directors had to insist that the studio audience not applaud for him, as it would go on for so long that it'd mess up the timing of the show.

** In "The Fatigues," George intentionally fails an eye exam so he can get a book on tape as he can't stand reading anymore. This is used to show what a lazy and unscrupulous person he is, but after the TurnOfTheMillennium, books on tape became very common, easy to get, and it's considered perfectly normal for those who aren't blind to use them.

He ''does'' still defraud a charity organization that records books-on-tape for the visually impaired though, so there's that.

** A very young Creator/DrakeBell cameos as the beginning of "The Frogger" as the punk who messes up at the game when George distracts him.

Added DiffLines:

* ProtectionFromEditors: Not surprisingly, Jerry Seinfeld and co. were given carte blanch to do whatever they wanted the last two seasons and responded by writing broader stories that would require bigger budgets. The elephant at the beginning of "The Betrayal"? The writer of the episode put it in ''because he could.''

* AssPull: Kramer and Newman not reporting seeing Jerry's stolen car in Ohio to the police, claiming they don't want to get in trouble for misuing a mail truck. The police wouldn't bother checking if the truck or occupants if they reported seeing a friend's stolen car while on a routine mail run. Justified in that they're idiots.

** In "The Burning", was Krueger invoking ObfuscatingStupidity to George to get back at him for leaving the meetings early? Or did he truly think George was worthy of taking on such a big task by himself? Evidence of the former includes Krueger's IronicEcho of "Thank you George, you've been great. That's it for me." and leaving George to do the project all by himself; evidence of the latter: Hey, he ''is'' Krueger, not the brightest bulb.
