- Harsher in Hindsight: In a couple early strips, Wanda was shown to be a fan of Mel Gibson (or rather, his buns). Obviously, this was before Gibson's first anti-Semetic rant incident.
- Periphery Demographic: The strip is popular even among those who aren't parents — including, apparently, teenage girls.
- Audience-Alienating Premise: Unlike the strip, the show was fused with crass humor and language aimed squarely at older audiences, but this seemed to turn off fans of the actual comic, and the show didn't have much of an audience to grab outside of that fanbase.
- Broken Base: Some people who weren't familiar with the strip thought it was a decent show in it's own right, while others that grew up with the strip disliked it for how much it changed the story to the point where it barely even resembled the original strip.
