* AdaptationDisplacement: Most who have seen this series have never even heard of ''ComicBook/{{Gear}}'', which is the show's source material. [[{{Irony}} Ironically]], said source material [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes is actually easier to find than the show]].
* BadassDecay: The Kraken might suffer this, seeing as how he was able [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome to destroy a large ship in his debut appearance]], but by the next, [[DefeatMeansFriendship he was begging the cats to let him stay at their mansion]], [[HumiliationConga gets easily chained up to a rock by the other krakens on his home planet]], [[EpicFail and when he tries to fight the three-headed kraken (whom he says bullied him in junior high) he only slaps them once]]. [[CurbStompBattle Then, they picked him up, punched him in the face repeatedly, and threw him into the sea]].
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: In "To The Moon", Waffle make a graduation speech which ends with, "We say goodbye to our school, but we say hello to our future... MAKING FRENCH FRIES!" And then the [[UsefulNotes/TheNewTens Great Recession]] hit, leaving recent graduates without any job opportunities.
* HilariousInHindsight: At the beginning of "The Unicorn Club", Human Kimberly is singing a song that goes "Prancy-prance unicorn, fancy-pants unicorn..." Many years later, an episode of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' would prominently feature a unicorn named Fancypants.
* {{Squick}}: Gordon's infatuation with Human Kimberly. They are around the same age, but Gordon is clearly middle-aged in cat years.
