YMMV: Beetleborgs
  • Angst? What Angst?: Jo and the others don't seem to mind that her body and voice is permanently altered and she will never know what she truly looks like in the eyes of everyone else. Fridge Logic says that'd at least take some getting used to.
  • Ear Worm: GRAGH! Get it out!
  • Faux Symbolism: Creator of the Beetleborgs comic book, Art Fortunes, and his less successful, jailbird brother Les Fortunes.
  • Idiot Plot: There would be no villains in the show if Flabber had not, by his own admission, "made a boo-boo". (There would be no heroes if the three main characters had not succumbed to peer pressure and gone to the haunted house, but children do that sort of thing all the time.)
  • The Scrappy: Little Ghoul is abrasive and troublesome, but for some, the episode "Who's That Ghoul" really pushes her into Scrappy territory. She has done nothing for the protagonists but gotten them chased by the house monsters, but when a bounty hunter comes looking for her- for a crime she definitely committed- Flabber and the Borgs go to great lengths to defend her.
  • Villain Sue: Nukus, before becoming legitimate Big Bad - at which point, he experiences his predecessor's usual success rate..
