Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* Narm: Mary Yankovic's (Al's mom) atrocious acting. Al himself makes a crack about this on the commentary.

* JustHereForGodzilla: The few who still remember this show are mostly dedicated Weird Al fans, many of whom are willing to look past the glaring flaws just because it has Weird Al in it.

* MoralEventHorizon: Al is a bit of a jerk, but one particular episode has him force a guest star to play guinea pig to his new invention, [[BodyHorror giving them 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!

* NightmareFuel: The seizure-inducing [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ax4zF4ychoU Ear Booker Productions vanity plate]] at the end of each episode seems to invoke this trope. The soundtrack is an edited version of "Bite Me," the hidden track from Al's 1992 album ''Off The Deep End.''

Added DiffLines:

* StrawmanHasAPoint: In The Competition, there's no stated rules for the contest, so it's hard to say what criteria would count for not playing fair. Further more, Al for once did try to be the bigger person and ''did'' choose to just run his show properly...until Uncle Ralphie actively began to harass him on the set of his show with no immediate repercussions. We're supposed to see Al and Ralphie as equally culpable of breaking the imaginary rules and Fred Huggins as morally superior simply because he didn't cheat...but Fred Huggins also wasn't the victim of any sabotage. He was ''literally'' ignored and basically seems to have won by default simply because he's such a loser nobody would ever bother him. Dovetails nicely with BrokenAesop in that the ''real'' lesson seems to be less "Play fair" and more "It's easy to avoid being bullied if you're so pathetic nobody will try."
