What ''WesternAnimation/WhatACartoonShow'' was to ''Creator/CartoonNetwork'', ''Oh Yeah! Cartoons'' was to ''Creator/{{Nickelodeon}}''. It was a showcase of cartoons from multiple fresh and up and coming animators at the time. Several of these animators got their big break here thanks to Fred Seibert, founder of Creator/FrederatorStudios and creator and producer of ''Oh Yeah! Cartoons'', ''What A Cartoon'', and the briefly produced ''WesternAnimation/RandomCartoons'' on Creator/{{Nicktoons}} Network. Of the shorts that appeared on the show only three were made into series by Nickelodeon; Creator/ButchHartman, with ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents'', Rob Renzetti with ''WesternAnimation/MyLifeAsATeenageRobot''[[note]]The original short was called "My Neighbor was a Teenage Robot".[[/note]], and Bill Burnett and Larry Huber [[note]] who were the producer and executive producer of Oh yeah! cartoons respectively, as well as the creator or co-creator of many shorts [[/note]], with ''WesternAnimation/{{Chalkzone}}''.

A few other noteworthy animators who came out of this and were picked up by Nickelodeon and other companies fairly quickly after ''Oh Yeah!'' Include Creator/SethMacFarlane of ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', and Dave Wasson of ''WesternAnimation/TimeSquad'' and Carlos Ramos of ''WesternAnimation/TheXs''. Other noteworthy creators include Mike Bell, Alex Kirwan, Tim Biskup, Pat Ventura, Steve Marmel, Zac Moncrief, and Vincent Waller, just some of the incredible talent in the animation industry that helped in the creation, writing, and directing of several highly creative, and influential animated series in the recent years since 1998.

Compare ''WesternAnimation/RandomCartoons'', a similar Nickelodeon anthology show which even got [[WesternAnimation/AdventureTime it's own]] MorePopularSpinoff (albeit on [[Creator/CartoonNetwork a different channel]]). Also compare the ''WesternAnimation/NickelodeonAnimatedShortsProgram'', Nickelodeon's non-Frederator incubator, which is shown online.

* AnimatedAdaptation: The short "Hey Look" is an adaptation of a series of comic strips of the same name that Harvey Kurtzman made in the 1940's.
* BadSanta: Santa's rival South Pole Joe in ''Super Santa'', though he's more a Bad Santa because he's completely incompetent rather than evil.
* BadassSanta: ''Super Santa'' depicts Santa Claus as a superhero.
* BattleCouple: Super Santa and Emma Claus both fight crime.
* BelievingTheirOwnLies: Edward from the short "Ask Edward: All About Babies" tells a big lie to his brother about babies coming from eggs laid by the DeliveryStork at the North Pole, but ends up actually believing it when they find an egg near the house after Edward claimed it was impossible for their parents to have another baby.

** The premise of "Freddy Seymoure's Amazing Life" is that he spends the short telling outlandish and unbelievable stories, like being given a crown by an alien king as a reward for saving his planet by solving a giant puzzle sphere and beating a wrestler by tricking him into devouring his own body. When his dad asks him what happened to his tie and he answers that a monster ate it, it turns out that there actually is a monster ruining Freddy's dad's clothes, which implies that Freddy didn't make up his other stories either.

Edward first tells his brother that parents get a baby by sending a request form to the stork at the North Pole during Christmas, Easter, or when the tooth fairy comes to claim the lost tooth of one of the children they already have, afterwards the stork will lay an egg that will hatch into a baby after being delivered. When their mother tries to set them straight by having their dad explain the facts of life to them, they only end up thinking that eggs will only contain babies if bees have pollinated them.

* NeverSayDie: Played straight in the short "Protecto 5000". The titular robot bodyguard's original owner is implied to be killed at one point, but when Protecto 5000 tells his story to the little girl he befriends, he states that his owner "had an accident".
* NoFourthWall: "What is Funny?" has Slap T. Pooch repeatedly asking the audience whether everything he does and everything that happens to him is funny.

* PunctuatedForEmphasis: OH! YEAH! CARTOONS!
* TheQuietOne: The title character of "Magic Trixie" only has one line of dialogue, two if you count the obligatory clip of the short's main character saying "Oh Yeah! Cartoons".

* SassyBlackWoman: Jamal the Funny Frog's little sister Polly may just be a tadpole, but she does tend to act like a black woman with attitude.

* StepfordSmiler: The Goose Lady appears to be one, leading in to her guilt-tripping Dot and Randy into listening to her story in "The Egg Who Would Be King" by pointing out how ridiculous her entire existence is.

* TakeThat: The ''Dan Danger'' short "Danger 101" has a brief scene of Dan Danger telling ComicBook/{{Aquaman}} that his power to command sea life is lame.
* TheTalk: The short "Ask Edward: All About Babies" has Edward mislead his younger brother Emo that babies come from eggs that the stork lays after receiving a baby request form from the parents during Christmas, Easter, or when one of the children they already have has lost a tooth. After Emo and Edward make a scene over their mother cooking an egg they thought was their new little brother, she tries to set them straight with a talk from their father, but that only causes them to assume that eggs only have babies in them after being pollinated by bees.
* TitleDrop: "Hey Look" has several segments of the short begin with the Big Guy or the Little Guy shouting the short's title.
* TitleThemeTune: Besides the show itself, at least one short (Zoey's Zoo) has a theme song of its own that mentions the title.

He initially dreads the trip to the dentist and is unwilling to part with his rotten tooth after it's been pulled out, but all is well for him when the dentist is able to fix up his decayed tooth and put it back in his mouth.
* VillainSong:
** The Criminally Insane Gingerbread Men in "What is Funny?" briefly sing "Tough Cookies" when Slap T. Pooch finds himself at their mercy.
** The Balloon Goon in "Blotto" sings "Get the Girl into My World" while scheming to steal Blotto's love interest Dotto.
** In "Fuzzy Bunny Presents: A Kid's Life", the sentient zits on Suzy's nose sing "We're the Stinkin' Blackheads".
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: The short "Kameleon Kid" was about a boy who gained shape-changing abilities after a lab accident.
* WhoEvenNeedsABrain: Type III is demonstrated in the short "Max and his Special Problem", where a man literally sneezes his brain out and has to try and find a way to get his brain back in his head. Aside from twitching every time his brain is poked, he is shown to act perfectly fine without a brain.
