This show provides examples of:
- Bratty Half-Pint: Averted with Daniel. Though he's an annoyance to Simon, Daniel is generally a good kid.
- Casting Gag: One episode featured Simon dressing up in drag.
- Deadpan Snarker: Simon (when he's not being a Large Ham), though, what else would we expect from Tim Curry?
- Dropped a Bridge on Him: Simon's character in Days to Remember is killed in a plane crash after Simon is fired from his acting job on the show.
- Hidden Heart of Gold: Simon. He does have Jerk Ass tendencies, and he tends to think of himself more than others. But, he generally means well and does show concern for others from time to time.
- Jerk Ass: Simon, when he's being egotistical and selfish...which is 90% of the time.
- Large Ham: Simon is a parody of this.
- Playing Against Type: Apart from Simon's Jerk Ass qualities, this is one of the few roles Tim Curry plays that isn't a villain.
