* ClicheStorm - The series is ''extremely'' guilty of this, but its combination of {{Narm}} ([[NarmCharm which is often intentional]]), StrictlyFormula plots and massive reliance on RuleOfCool make it so fun for the fans. The later seasons ham it up even further, leading to enormous MoodWhiplash swings.
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome - The main theme.
* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff - Not literally in this show, but in Spain, the dub of this series is very popular, constantly airing in back to back marathons with dubbed reruns of ''TheSimpsons''.
** In Italy, the series has been a staple of the second national channel for years, with very frequent daily reruns at dinnertime ''and'' weekly primetime runs whenever a new season is dubbed.
** It's also reran regularly on at least three to four Hungarian TV stations, and the country's leading commercial network always airs the latest episodes, with highly commendable ratings.
** On the other side of the globe, the show counts as one of the most popular foreign TV series in ''Japan''.
* TheProblemWithLicensedGames -- at least eight video games based on the series have been made, only three [[NoExportForYou released outside Germany]]. Not that the other countries would have missed much, since their quality is generally poor.
** SoBadItsGood - The voice acting in said games.
