* DeaderThanDisco: A borderline case. In the early-mid 2000s the series was very popular, and many will still admit to liking (albeit probably not ''loving'') the radio series and the first TV series. However, everything else after that now tends to be regarded as total crap, and a major contributor to the blacklash against the classic BritCom format in later in that decade.
* DudeNotFunny: Increasingly cheap laughs [[JumpingTheShark as the series went on]].
** One specific example is a deleted scene from season three, where Linda makes fun of a student who only has one arm. The actor playing him was indeed disabled, and while he himself was perfectly okay with the joke, Lucas and Walliams were very uncomfortable about it in retrospect ("It's one thing to stick some fake hair on a girl and say she has a moustache, but this one went that little bit too far"). Depending on your perception of the duo, this could be a case of EvenEvilHasStandards.
** Walliams and Lucas also admit to cutting a sex scene between Jason and Nan (intended for series two) because they agreed it was too offensive for broadcast.
* HoYay: Sebastian, the prime minister's right hand man. Come on, guys!
* OneSceneWonder: Boris the Russian babysitter, from episode eight of the first season.
* SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome: If the audience's reaction is anything to go by, it's [[spoiler:the PM and Gregory kissing]] in season 3.
* RecycledPremise: The show has been criticized for ripping off the surreal and grotesque humour found in ''TheLeagueOfGentlemen'', of whom Lucas and Walliams are both fans and friends.
* RetroactiveRecognition: Andy's new caretaker Mrs Mead is [[Film/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix Dolores Umbridge]].
* SubbingVersusDubbing: In Austria, Little Britain is shown with subtitles. In Germany, it's dubbed. '''But:''' the dubbing is done by comedians Oliver Welke and Oliver Kalkofe, who used to have a similar radio show.
