* HumorDissonance: Comparing the Simpsons' laughter with the viewer, of course (though ComedicSociopathy always helps in this case).
* IronWoobie: Scratchy
* NightmareFuel: Some of the things done to Scratchy are simply disturbing and not funny at all.
* PeripheryDemographic: InUniverse, the show is absolutely ''adored'' by hipster students and nerdy, adult fanboys.
* TheScrappy: Poochie.
