* MisaimedFandom: A minor example. Because of the show's popularity, it was soon sold in regular video stores like Blockbuster, rather than confined to the Christian book stores where it was intended to be sold, and was enjoyed by plenty of children who weren't devoutly Christian. There were a handful of non-Christian parents who were upset about this, as they felt it was propaganda, though they were few and far-between.

Even Phil Vischer had this fear himself when he initially dove into the mass market.



* PeripheryDemographic: Who got WesternAnimation/VeggieTales going in its early years? College students. The show is also enjoyed by many non-Christians.

* PeripheryDemographic: Who got WesternAnimation/VeggieTales going in its early years? College students.students [[note]]To elaborate a bit more on this, Phil Vischer explained it in his autobiography -- Christian book stores often had a children's section with a TV in one part of the store. Often, they would take a random tape and play it on the VCR on repeat throughout the day; college students who often worked in the store part-time usually didn't have a whole lot to do, so when they inevitably would pop in a tape for this show, they would find themselves enjoying it way more than they expected. It was one of the many ways word of mouth helped get this show on the map.[[/note]]. The show is also enjoyed by many non-Christians.

* DesignatedHero: Larry-Boy in his first two appearances comes off this way. Although he is supposed to be TheDitz and this is kind of the point, he ultimately doesn't do a whole lot to solve the problems in either episode. In ''The Fib From Outer Space'', he not only fails to find the Fib before he grows out of control entirely, it's not even him that helps solve the problem -- he just happens to be in close proximity to Junior when Alfred yells through his headset that Junior is [[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou the only one that can stop the Fib from growing.]] In ''The Rumor Weed'', he does even less; he at least attempts to stop the weed from growing, but still never realizes that the only way it can be stopped is through refusing to spread rumors, so his attempts end up doing nothing at all. Worse of all, he was the one for creating the villain of the episode. Thankfully in ''The Bad Apple'' this got much better; while he still has flaws and the villain still thwarts him to some degree, he actually figures out how to stop her and ''aids'' in doing so too.

* WereStillRelevantDammit: While the series isn't too bad at parody stuff, some of their recent work seem to rely too much on recent ongoing trends. These include:

* IdiotPlot: A minor example -- during the opening countertop segment of ''Rack, Shack, and Benny'', when Bob brings up what the topic of the show is (trying to do the right thing), Larry's first reaction is to go straight to Qwerty for help. The only reason they have him do this is because he has an oven mitt on his head (thus he can't see), so of course he doesn't see where he's going and falls into the sink. While Larry is a [[TheDitz Ditz]], this is a course of action that never happens until the closing countertop segment; they specifically made him break away from the usual routine ''just'' to make him fall into the sink.
