-->'''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.
* DudeNotFunny: The scenes where Che tries to kill other animals because he is being unintentionally starved by his owner can be ''really'' hard to watch.
* 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 of conservatives that also depicted them as regular people instead of simple caricatures, the Goodes' characterization relied more on broad stereotypes of liberals, without as much of the down-to-earth relatability that made Hank Hill and his circle likable even to viewers who didn't share the same outlook. As a result, conservatives didn't find the show satirical enough, liberals just found it unfunny and boring, and neither side was able to really get attached to the characters.
** Played straight with Che. There's definitely nothing funny about animal starvation.
* UnintentionallySympathetic: As mentioned above, part of show's problem was that the Goodes are fundamentally progressive, if a bit overbearing, people who ultimately want what's best for the world at large, making it difficult for audiences to laugh at their expense.
* TheWoobie: Poor, poor Che.
** The other pet owners in the Goode's neighborhood.
** 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.
