This series provides examples of:
- Blaxploitation: Many clips the show uses derive from the genre.
- Expy: Jackie Potato is Dexter with the Blaxploitation level and stereotypes turned Up to 11.
- Getting Crap Past the Radar: Even if it was aimed towards older audiences, it was still aired on a children's network. So it's pretty weird seeing the constant bleeped "swearing" all over the place.
- Idiosyncratic Episode Naming: Usually in the form of combining a Hanna-Barbera character with an outside reference. e.g. Captain Majors Lonely Hearts Club Band
- Running Gag: One of the chief sources of humor from the show.
- Stock Footage: Many clips are reused in different episodes.
- Widget Series: "Made only in England!"
