*** On the subject of political correctness, 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," meaning that "he or she" is now politically incorrect.

** Several jokes involved explicit product advertisements within the movies Jay watched, much to his disgust. During the early '90s, product placement in films was indeed fairly uncommon, making the writers seems almost clairvoyant for predicting how much the practice would come to dominate cinema.

!!Some in-show examples include:
* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: An InUniverse example occurs in that Jay is generally loathed in America and Mexico (in Mexico, Jay's show is prefaced with a warning stating that Jay is an escaped mental patient, as his behavior scares Mexicans), but is very popular in France. This is because of his resemblance to {{Babar}}, King Of The Elephants.
* HePannedItNowHeSucks: What viewers tend to think about Jay.
* JustHereForGodzilla: From "Frankie and Ellie Get Lost":
-->'''Jay:''' Well, here's what I think--\\
'''Duke:''' Sorry, son, our research shows people don't care what you think. They just tune in for the funny clips.
* MisaimedMarketing: Spoofed -- in this show's universe, Siskel and Ebert tie-in merchandise includes such oddities as a Whack-A-Mole game.
* NeverLiveItDown: It was Jay's 8th birthday. [[MonsterClown That clown was so scary,]] [[BringMyBrownPants that he wet his pants]]. As a result, everybody laughed at him, and they keep calling him "Weewee."
** To the point that the Stablemaster ''still'' refers to him by that 28 years later. To be fair though, this ''might'' be in retaliation for Jay lying about his weight as a child, resulting in the untimely death of Patches the Pony.
* PeripheryHatedom: While the ''real'' Barney exists in-universe (see MoneyDearBoy on the Trivia tab), Humphrey the Hippo serves as this universe's usual analogue to him. Jay's hatred of Humphrey figures into the B-plot of "A Little Deb Will Do Ya".
-->'''Humphrey:''' Please, kids, my philosophy is "love and dance", not "hate and not dance."
* ReviewsAreTheGospel: Invoked in episode 4, "Miserable". A woman kidnaps Jay, so he can review movies for her. And she can tell which ones are good and which ones are bad because she likes every movie she sees and can't tell otherwise.
