* SomethingCompletelyDifferent / DarkerAndEdgier: "Trapped." The plot deals with Ralph witnessing a bank robbery, nearly getting murdered, and later being held hostage by the bank robbers along with Alice and Norton in the apartment. There were understandably many fewer laughs in this episode than any of the others, and even several instances of NightmareFuel. It remains a vastly unpopular episode with fans, and is subjected to FanonDiscontinuity.

** In the episode 'TV or Not TV' Alice questions why Ralph won't buy a TV, Ralph replies he's waiting for 3-D TV. UH, Ralph...dont go into any Best Buy Stores anytime soon....

* HumorDissonance: "Six Months to Live" certainly has a touch of this. While we are supposed to find uproarious humor in Ralph believing he is dying, the letter he reads could easily double as a TearJerker for any dog owner. This troper can't watch said episode for that very reason.

Added DiffLines:

** The show is considered groundbreaking for being one of the first instances of film or television to portray marriage in a negative way (TheHaysCode strictly forbid it at the time). Nowadays, it's hard to imagine any sitcom where the married leads aren't in a love/hate relationship.

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: Considering that it was one of the earliest television series at all, let alone a popular and successful one, it paved the way for nearly every DomCom that would run everything that made it unique into the ground, from the leads being a bumbling husband and [[WomenAreWiser snarky wife]], to the [[WackyGuy wacky neighbor]] to [[ContrivedCoincidence a perfectly-timed misunderstanding would lead to 30 minutes of hijinks]], et al. The worst offender was easily ''TheFlintstones'', essentially [[RecycledInSpace an all-caveman remake]] which is arguably [[TheWeirdAlEffect still more popular today than this show]].

* ValuesDissonance: Okay, "To the moon, Alice!" was never meant seriously, but there is ''no way'' a modern SitCom husband could get away with even an empty threat of domestic violence. This is especially highlighted in an episode of ''TheKingOfQueens'' which did a homage to the show where Doug suffers a bad cold and hallucinates himself into it, where the gag is notably absent.
