** All of ''The Adventures of Fatman'' segments, for starters. Same with the "Al TV" segments, including most of the fake commercials and stuff.

Like the parody of the "Got Milk" ads, where the announcer sends people after the kids in the ad to spill all their milk for some reason, and belts out an evil laugh.

* FunnyMoments: In spite of the executive's attempts, they couldn't constrain Weird Al's hilarity.
** All of ''The Adventures of Fatman'' segments, for starters. Same with the "Al TV" segments, including most of the fake commercials and stuff.
** Not to mention Al as a newscaster reporting bizarre stories- including his total freakout when he reported that Babe Ruth had come back from the dead to play in the MLB again- "BABE RUTH IS ALIVE?! HE WALKS THE EARTH! RUN FOR YOUR LIVES! AAAHHH, AAAHHH!"
** Al opening his fanmail in episode 10, which included an envelope full of beef stew, and a bunch of cash from Ed [=MacMahon=] (who used to be the sweepstakes guy). Then suddenly a weird goat-bleating noise goes off- it's the [[YokoOhNo Yoko Ono Alarm]], which means it's commercial time!



** DNA PRoductions- later one of the producers of ''Film/JimmyNeutronBoyGenius'' (and the [[WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfJimmyNeutronBoyGenius spinoff series]]) made the CGI-animated part of the intro and the ''Fatman'' cartoons (and Creator/BillyWest would use his "Evil Uncle Frank" voice from one of said segments for Sam, the owner of [[LocalHangout the Candy Bar]] in ''Jimmy Neutron'', complete with the same VerbalTic of constantly going "Yeah!" at the end of sentences).

* OneSceneWonder: The show was filmed at Creator/{{NBC}} Studios in Burbank- just down the way from ''{{The Tonight Show}}'', and Al would often troll the halls trying to get Leno's guests to do a scene. A remarkable number of them agreed, like Drew Carey and Bill Mumy.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Is Al simply an unintentionally insensitive CloudCuckoolander, or is he something much worse?
** With the above in consideration, are his disgusting Nutrition Break segments just a testament to his weirdness, or is he deliberately trying to make the audience poison themselves?

* {{Anvilicious}}: Every episode would also spend the next half hour pounding the moral into your head from all directions.



* MoralEventHorizon: Al is a bit of a jerk, but one particular episode has him force guest star Tahj Mowry to play guinea pig to his new invention, [[BodyHorror giving him a dinosaur foot.]] At the end of the episode, he's still around, yelling to the audience that Al must be stopped. Al isn't a jerk, he's a supervillain!
** There's also the time Val Brentwood kidnapped a boy band to sabotage Al's competitor. Al was at first upset, but quickly decided to force them to play for him.

* InformedWrongness: In "The Competition", both Al and Uncle Raphie [[spoiler: lose the "best kids show host" award because [[AnAesop they didn't play fair]],]] but there were no known rules given, so it's hard to determine what constitutes as "playing fair".

** A great deal of fans can only stand to watch the show on DVD with the commentary on, because they find much more pleasure in listening to Al and company make fun of the show than to actually watch it on its own.
This list shows the last 10 events of 25. Show all.
