* LoveItOrHateIt: While few people can deny R&S' influence to animation [[note]] Though people are divided on whether that was a good thing or a bad thing. John K. sees it as the latter.[[/note]], opinion on the show ranges from "only liked because of NostalgiaFilter" to "one of the greatest cartoons ever made".

* FirstInstallmentWins: The first two seasons are considered some of the greatest TV cartoons ever made. [[BrokenBase Fans are heavily divided the Games era episodes. (i.e. Seasons 3-5)]] And the less said about the Adult Party Cartoon revival, the better.

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: The show was Nickelodeon's first big breadwinner and hugely popular in its prime, and many of the shows elements, particularly it's humor and drawing style, were shocking and unprecedented when it first hit the air. As a result, it ended up becoming one of the most [[FollowTheLeader ripped off]] cartoons of all time, to TV cartoons what [[Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs Snow White]] is to animated features and what VideoGame/MarioKart is to racing games. Nearly everything the show pioneered that was considered unique and groundbreaking when it first appeared have since been so heavily imitated that they're now considered ubiquitous elements of contemporary cartoons--[[CreatorBacklash much to John K's chagrin]], since he felt that those cartoons only copied the many, many mistakes he made on the show, instead of what he felt he did right. Though, unlike most cases of SeinfeldIsUnfunny, this show is still as raunchy[[note]]Although this part mainly applies to the later "Adult Party Cartoon" series, since, as the name indicates, that was made specifically for older viewers.[[/note]] and disgusting as it was back in the 1990s (even more so, now that the fans who watched this as kids have grown up), so much so that it has a 12 rating in the UK (and the song "The Lord Loves a Hanging" song was cut, because the BBFC objected to portraying hanging oneself as a fun activity and not a painful, excruciating death) and Common Sense Media's website put this series as "Unsuitable for Anyone Under 15."[[note]]As disgusting as the original show can be, this also primarily applies to the "Adult Party Cartoon".[[/note]]

** The "Loop of Death" music from an episode of Adult Party Cartoon is actually an old jazz number called "Hold That Tiger", and the recording used is from an old BettyBoop cartoon.

* '''''[[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids? What Do You Mean, It's For Kids?]]:''''' Just look up an episode. Any episode. You '''will''' be surprised when you find out that it was rated TV-Y7 during its airtime, while containing suicidal jokes, the use of the word crap and loosely censored "hell", racist jokes, tons of GettingCrapPastTheRadar, Ren's disturbingly realistic [[AxCrazy mental breakdowns]], BodyHorror, loads of BlackComedy and disturbing images, among many other things. The show came out at a time when cable television was starting to offer edgier content that you could only to pay to see. This meant that nobody was really certain exactly ''who'' would be watching it.

** Depending on how you look at it, a lot of the friendlier [[TheBear "Lummox "]] styled characters can certainly [[BigBeautifulMan fall into this.]] Especially when a lot of them end up being a BruiserWithASoftCenter or straight up GentleGiant.
