* FridgeBrilliance: In "A Song For Margo" Jay reviews an ''Film/ETTheExtraTerrestrial'' parody called "D.T. The Drunken Terrestrial." D.T. is also an abbreviation for withdrawals alcoholics go through after they stop drinking.



* SugarWiki/FunnyMoments: [[Funny/TheCritic Now has its own page]].



* NightmareFuel: Jay has a FlashbackCut about a bad experience he had in Duke’s mansion. He was chained to a brick wall by his wrists in a dungeon-like room, a long beard hanging from his face.
-->'''Duke: ''' All right Sherman, you’ve been here long enough. I'll give you the dental plan you want, with a $50 deductible.
-->'''Jay: ''' $25 deductible.
-->'''Duke: ''' ''(diabolically)'' See you in 5 years. ''(slams door)''
** "The [[SandWorm Worm]] from Hell!"
*** It becomes NightmareRetardant when the Worm from Hell turns out to be as vulnerable as a puppy when Alice says let's go.
** Falling on the line between this trope and CrowningMomentOfFunny: "In every boy's life, there's a summer of '72."
*** To clarify, Jay was referring to the time Franklin and Eleanor sent him to Attica as a child, thinking it was a summer camp. Including a scene where a young Jay nervously sings "Animal Crackers in My Soup" among a group of vicious-looking inmates.
** The ending of "Franklin and Eleanor Get Lost" where the monkeys try to eat Jay and Franklin.
--->'''Jay:''' Uh, Dad? I think they want to eat us.
--->'''Franklin:''' Don't be silly, boy. I'm their hero!
--->''(Franklin is indeed inside a long sandwich bun.)''
** The disturbing implications brought on by how Jay's cure saved Duke Phillips but [[NiceJobBreakingItHero also saved the lives of horrible people, including a seal clubber, a vicious dictator, and three prisoners]]
*** The leer one of the prisoners gives to the camera is unsettling.
** "Dorisss, tick tock!" See FunnyAneurysmMoment below.
** Being a parody of ''{{Film/Misery}}'', ''Miserable'' counts.

*** On the subject of PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad jokes, the plot of the episode "Uneasy Rider" involves Jay delivering a shipment of politically correct textbooks to schoolchildren. One concerned father bemoans that his son asks "When is he going to get here?" and not "When is he or she going to get here?" 20+ years later, we see a stronger push for gender-neutral pronouns like "they" or "them" to include genders other than male and female, meaning that "he or she" is now politically incorrect!

** "All the Duke's Men" is this. A New York City based billionaire with a iconic skyscraper, with no political experience runs for President? Like that would ever work...

** While fans will certainly claim the show has held up in terms of its humor, more modern viewers may find the film parodies unremarkable, even if enjoyable. However, the idea of a show, let alone a prime-time cartoon, specializing in film parody was a rather new concept back in 1994. However, today, we have shows that consistently parody films, television, and pop culture, such as later seasons of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' (particularly its cutaway gags and family TV interludes), ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'', ''WesternAnimation/Futurama'', ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'', just to name a few.
