Rated "A" For Awesome is a Canadian/American animated series. It focuses on the adventures of a group of "Awesomizers": Stepsiblings Les and Thera Awesome and their friends Lars, Noam, and pet monkey Mr. Twitchy, strive to make anything that's lame or "blah" awesome.
The series provides the following tropes:
Accidental Misnaming: Holly Hotley never gets Les' name right, even calling him "Lindsey" on one occasion.
AI Is A Crap Shoot: Some of the machines the Awesomizers build end up turning on them, most notably ALEC, a smart computer designed to organise the school yearbook; It developed an unhealthy fixation with it's creator, Noam, and tried to get rid of the others.
Ambiguously Brown: Thera and her mom, Angelina. Though Thera's first name and their surname, Kerplopolis, seem to imply they're Greek.
Angst Nuke: Noam spent one episode wearing a device to remove his negative emotions (The "Blues Smoother"). The others, wanting the old Noam back, desecrate his favorite shirt, making him so angry that the Blues Smoother overloads and explodes.
Attention Whore: The Trishas in "When Mascots Attack"; When Lars is accepted onto the cheer squad, they put him in the "Growly Gopher" costume, so he won't draw attention away from them. When an Awesomization foils their plan, they leak the tech to the school's rivals, and start cheering for them instead.
Balloon Belly: A group of Mole Men get these in "Garbage In, Garbage Out" after eating lots of garbage. Unlike other examples, this is explained somewhat by the Mole Men having a fast metabolism (Which allows them to work off the weight just as quickly).
Eat the Evidence: In "ET Phone Noam", when Noam decides to leave with the aliens, Thera writes him a love letter confessing her feelings for him, telling him not to read it until he gets to his new home planet. When the aliens turn out to be evil and the group rescues Noam, he goes to read the letter, but Thera snatches it from him and gulps it down.
In Medias Res: In "Sleep Smart" Les talks about The Cashola Company as if Team Awesome has been foiling their schemes for a long time, but they're never even mentioned in any episode before or after this.
In the Blood: In "Bend It Like Burt" this is how the gang find out Burt is of Norgish heritage.
Our Zombies Are Different: In "Mall of the Living Dolls" the Trishas are turned into glambies (fashion obsessed zombies) when they go into Noam's makeover machine at the same time, causing it to malfunction. They turn other people into glambies by forcing them into the same machine.
People Puppets: In "Dancing More Or Les", One of Noam's inventions turns Les into a willing version, perfectly replicating Thera's dance moves.
Refugee from TV Land: In "Don't Judge A Mutant By Its Slobber", the team's attempt to "awesome-ize" a video game results in the games Sergeant Rock protagonist and mutant villains escaping into the real world.
Slippery Swimsuit: Happens to Les in one episode where he loses his baggy trunks at the local water park. As he is sneaking around naked trying to get them back, the trunks get jammed in one of the water jets and threaten to cause an explosion. Made even funnier by the fact that this happened after he criticised Lars for wearing a tight thong.
Subliminal Advertising: In "Sleep Smart" nearly everyone in town is hypnotised by a commercial so they'll buy a terrible potato-flavored soda.
The Game Come to Life: In "Don't Judge A Mutant By it's Slobber", an attempt to turn "Mutant Marauders" into a virtual reality game results in the characters coming to life.
You Can't Fight Fate: Played with. In "Thera's Awesome Date With Destiny", Noam's "Fateinator" depicts Thera at the prom with Chet. Her attempts to prevent this results in the image changing to show her with someone even more repugnant. The last time it is used, she is with someone whose face is hidden, but has shoes similar to Noam's...
