Fridge / Kaeloo

Fridge Horror
  • Smileyland doesn't have police officers or firefighters.
  • In "Let's Play Baby-Sitting", Kaeloo agrees to seduce Mr. Cat in order to produce a baby for Stumpy to take care of. Now consider the anatomical differences between cats and frogs. Thankfully, it never got to that stage thanks to an emotional outburst on Kaeloo's side before anything could happen. However, if they'd gone through with the plan, it would not have ended well. There's also the fact that neither cats nor frogs produce one baby at a time...
    • If Kaeloo and Mr. Cat did have kids, those poor kids would have wound up with a mother who turned into a monster and did things she couldn't control whenever she got angry, and a psychopathic and evil father.
    • If the kids produced could transform like their mother...
    • Also, Mr. Cat is less than 13, and Kaeloo may or may not be in the same age group ...
  • So far, we've only seen seven inhabitants of Smileyland and have been given insight into the past of three of them, and one is the "guardian" of the place. What happened to everyone else?
  • The scene at the end of "Let's Play House" just seems like a naughty little joke, but the implications of the entire scene, from Mr. Cat rubbing his groin against Kaeloo's to the honking sound effect that played once the lights went out were rather unfortunate. In other words an attempt at rape had just been shown on-screen. Granted, the fact that she can transform into a hulking monster and beat the stuffing out of him lessens the impact, but it is more the idea that Mr. Cat might not be above raping his friend which is truly frightening.
    • This happens again in "Let's Play Baby-Sitting". She slips out between his legs and then beats him up for it.
  • In Episode 77, Olaf is nowhere to be seen when the planet explodes. And he was confirmed to be in Smileyland during the episode...
  • Episode 65 ends with Kaeloo, Stumpy and Quack Quack chasing Mr. Cat around with his own weapons, pretending that they are him and he is Quack Quack. It's funny until Mr. Cat yells "I'M NOT INDESTRUCTIBLE!"
  • Yoghurts are shown to be sentient in Smileyland. Quack-Quack eats them by the crate.
  • The Carnivore Confusion Mr. Cat must have as a result of constantly being around a duck, a squirrel, two rabbits, a penguin and a frog. It's lampshaded in a few episodes, too.
  • Kaeloo's psychological profile in general. At times, to prevent herself from transforming into Bad Kaeloo out of rage, she forces herself into a wired-open grin. She also puts a lot of emphasis on being 'cute', 'sweet' and 'nice'. The fact that she was so overjoyed to die via being crushed by a meteorite in Let's Play the Quest for the Wholly Gruel indicates she may even be suicidal. Add to that her readiness to leave Smileyland in "Let's Play Courtroom Drama" when she decided her other personality was a serious threat to her friends and it quickly becomes clear that Bad Kaeloo is holding her hostage in her own body.
  • The main four treat everything like a game. Olaf, who has proven to be quite dangerous, does not.
  • In Episode 75, Mr. Cat reacts very negatively to Quack Quack leaving. In the absence of someone to torture, he almost kills Stumpy with a chainsaw. What's going to happen when Mr. Cat leaves Smileyland?
  • Mr. Cat can just claim to be a "professional [insert occupation here]", etc. and everyone just believes what he says. This includes professions such as, for example, a doctor. Someone whose hands a person's life is trusted in in emergencies.
  • The expository comics show Stumpy holding a chainsaw and Mr. Cat playing with weapons and explosives - as babies.
    • Stumpy has been shown on the show several times to be a victim of Parental Neglect, so his mother probably didn't know or didn't care. Mr. Cat, on the other hand... given his backstory in "Let's Play Baby-Sitting", it's even possible that he was an unwanted kitten. Let that sink in.
    • This is shown again in a flashback in episode 110, where little Stumpy is shown, before going to bed, using a taser instead of a stuffed animal. He then bites the taser, which gives him an electric shock.
  • Mr. Cat's psychopathic behavior is even scarier when Episode 34 reveals that he is less than 13 years old.
  • In Episode 106, Mr. Cat offers to sell Stumpy a bazooka. Kaeloo diverts the conversation, but what would have happened if a dangerous weapon like that wound up in the hands of someone like Stumpy, who is not only lethally stupid but also established to be insane?
  • In "Let's Play Air Pockets", before the plane takes off, Mr. Cat says that the plane will take off after he has had some champagne to celebrate the CEO's retirement. Mr. Cat is the pilot. And champagne is alcoholic. He may have been drunk-driving a plane.
  • Once an Episode, Kaeloo winds up Hulking Out and beating up Mr. Cat severely. The problem is, Mr. Cat already has psychological issues due to being abused as a kitten. He claims to be fine with what Bad Kaeloo does to him, but it definitely can't be healthy.
  • Some of the things the characters go through, like Mr. Cat's alcohol problem and sadomasochistic tendencies and Pretty's possible eating disorder, are more unsettling when you realize that all of them are just kids who are less than 13 years old.
  • In episodes like "Let's Play House" and "Let's Play Baby-Sitting", Mr. Cat's parenting style is shown. It's pretty clear that he's probably going to become an Abusive Parent.
    • This also shows how he was probably treated at home, which is rather disturbing considering the fact that examples of stuff he does are whacking kids with mallets and kicking them in the face.
  • In Episode 121, Olaf calls the main four for a job interview. He claims that the whole thing was a joke, but what if he was secretly assessing their strengths and weaknesses so he could use this information against them in another attempt to Take Over the World.
  • In Episode 59, Mr. Cat's dish for the cooking competition is cooked eyes. Where exactly did he, a psychopath with severe mental issues, get the eyes from?
  • In "Let's Play Hopscotch", Kaeloo sees Quack Quack playing Mr. Cat's hopscotch game and says "Quack Quack is showing us the path! Follow in his footsteps and we'll all go to Heaven!" Given the fact that Mr. Cat had set up the hopscotch game to lead to Hell and not Heaven, what would have happened if Kaeloo had actually followed Quack Quack?
  • While we don't know the exact ages of the characters, Mr. Cat is less than 13 and Kaeloo is implied to be post-pubescent. Kaeloo is also implied to have a crush on Mr. Cat. Even if you assume that they are both kids, Mr. Cat has tried to have sex with Kaeloo at least two times. A kid who is less than 13 has tried to have sex with another kid or worse yet, someone who is older than him.
  • Mr. Cat remembers that his father was an alcoholic, that his mother yelled a lot, that his brothers used to beat him and that he was almost drowned when he was younger... and he is less than 13. No wonder he has issues.
  • Assuming that the whole "Only kids are allowed in Smileyland and you have to leave once you hit puberty" thing is true, one can only imagine how the overly idealistic and naive frog, extremely stupid squirrel and mentally unstable cat will be able to deal with that...
  • The fact that there's a store selling weapons, drugs and other dangerous stuff to a bunch of kids.
  • This is more of a Fridge Tear Jerker - in episode 105, Mr. Cat gets rid of his bad throughts (which are represented by miniature versions of him) in order to save Smileyland. One of his bad throughts is just walking around saying "I'm doomed" over and over again and the other bad throughts are jerks to each other, calling each other stupid, ugly, threatening and even attacking each other and at one point, Mr. Cat tells one of them that they are ugly. At first it may look like that's just Mr. Cat being, well, Mr. Cat, but remember, in this case, he is literally doing this to himself. Think about that for a second.
  • Another Fridge Tear Jerker: In Episode 75, Mr. Cat, with the intention of changing something about the past by talking to Past!Kaeloo, goes back in time to the series pilot, only to be stopped and beaten up by Present!Bad Kaeloo. The thing is, it's possible he may have been trying to alter the failed Love Confession he made to Kaeloo at the end of the pilot. And got beaten up for it. For someone who's already been through a lot of traumatic experiences, and has proven to be very attached to Kaeloo, that can't be a very good thing to happen...
  • In Episode 94, when Mr. Cat sees Kaeloo yelling at Stumpy, he informs her that yelling at a kid can traumatize them for life. Mr. Cat has mentioned before that his own mother used to yell at him when he was a kid.
  • Quack Quack was a lab animal. In this universe, animals are anthropomorphic and capable of speech and thought just like humans. What if there are other lab animals?

Fridge Brilliance
  • Kaeloo denies being a boy or a girl, but is clearly female. Then you remember that for some species of frog, gender isn't exactly a fixed attribute, and that hermaphrodites aren't a rare occurrence among amphibians.
  • Why didn't the spaceship work in Episode 77? If it was the same one from "Let's Play Astronauts", it runs on imagination, and the gang clearly weren't imagining anything at the moment.
  • In "Let's Play Time Travel", the episode starts with Stumpy as Prince Charming, riding on his "horse" Quack Quack, to kiss Sleeping Beauty. Suddenly, Mr. Cat shows up out of nowhere and shoots Stumpy with a bazooka and says that Sleeping Beauty is "his". This may seem like Mr. Cat being a jerk, but Kaeloo's lines later in the episode make it seem like she was also part of the game. Since she was the only one not present during this scene, we can conclude that the Sleeping Beauty in the game was Kaeloo - who Mr. Cat has a crush on.
  • Stumpy frequently says he can't read or write. So how come he's such a big fan of comic books? The pictures help him understand.
    • This may also be the reason he hates books without pictures.
  • In Episode 128, Pretty believes that Stumpy is faking his injuries. She was one of the background dancers in Mr. Cat's presentation to Stumpy on how to manipulate people into donating money, and therefore probably knew what he was doing.
  • In Episode 133, Mr. Cat seems to be much nicer to Kaeloo than usual. Then you realize that he had been drinking at the party, and other episodes have shown that he tends to drop the Jerkass Fašade and be much nicer when he drinks.
  • In Episode 87, why does Kaeloo get angry at Mr. Cat for ordering an alcoholic beverage but not get mad at Stumpy for ordering one? Because she was well aware that Stumpy couldn't possibly pay for it.
  • In "Let's Play Teachers", when Stumpy answers a question with "Quack", Kaeloo tells him he was wrong, but Quack Quack answers the same question with "Quack" and Kaeloo says that was the right answer. In Episode 69, it is revealed that Quack Quack actually speaks a duck language, and "Quack" can have several different meanings. Stumpy probably used the wrong one.
