-->'''Ubuntu:''' I like you.
-->'''Tanya:''' I heard you on the radio. I'm not scared of you anymore.
-->'''Ubuntu:''' Dance with me?
-->'''Tanya:''' I'd like that.
* HilariousInHindsight: The show might have been more well received if it came out just a few years later, when real life liberals about as extreme as the Goodes started becoming more well-known.
* SoOkayItsAverage: The series was canceled after one season, in spite of the mixed reviews.
* {{Squick}}: Gutterball, Charlie's grotesque pet.
* {{Tearjerker}}: In episode 6, where Gerald briefly abandons his family to undertake a misguided cause.
-->'''Ubuntu:''' You can't leave! Who am I gonna open jars for?!
* UnacceptableTargets: Less "unacceptable" and more "unfunny." While ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' was more of a knowing self-parody, there isn't really anything inherently funny about liberals or conservatives ''per se'', and the Goode clan isn't as affectionately spoofed compared to Hank Hill and his family, nor are they given much characterization beyond their stereotypes. The result is they're too hard for liberal viewers to relate to, and simply annoying to conservative viewers.
* TheWoobie: Poor, poor Che.

** Ubuntu, via FridgeHorror, if his parents' explanation of his origin story is anything to go by. His parents assumed that since he was a white South African, his blood parents were terrible people, and they resolved to prove that with conscientious parenting they could undo his blood parents' evil and make him a functioning member of society. It's ''extremely'' doubtful that his parents' parenting style wouldn't leave Ubuntu with extreme self-image issues and feelings of self-loathing.
