* DuelingShows: With ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', ''Family Dog'', and ''Fish Police''. ''The Simpsons'' slaughtered them all (mostly due to ExecutiveMeddling and mostly due to audiences finding all three shows to be a weak attempt at cashing in on ''The Simpsons''' success).
* FridayNightDeathSlot and ScrewedByTheNetwork: ABC ran the show on Saturday nights, thus it didn't have a chance to develop a wider audience.
* FollowTheLeader: As mentioned above, the show was failed attempt to cash-in on the success of the then-new prime-time animated sitcom ''TheSimpsons''.
** "DoogieHowserMD"-era Creator/NeilPatrickHarris is Max.
** CharlieAdler is Jammett, sounding like Chicken from ''WesternAnimation/CowAndChicken'' if his foul mouth wasn't implied (he hilariously dips into Cow's voice in "The Lady Doth Protest To Much").
** BobcatGoldthwait as Muggle
** Trixie would go on to work as a [[Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove waitress at Mudka's Meat Hut]].
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Fox may have let re-runs slip over to Turner/WB (as this show did air in the early days of Cartoon Network, when the channel was a 24/7/365 showcase of Hanna-Barbera animation, both popular[[note]]like ''TheFlintstones'', ''Scooby Doo'', ''Tom and Jerry'', and ''Yogi Bear''[[/note]] and obscure), but DVD rights apparently not so much. Even though the one that doesn't have it would probably release it if they did.
