YMMV: Camp Lazlo
  • Bizarro Episode: The final episode itself, "Lumpus' Last Stand." Lumpus discovers how to turn paint into a cheap alternative for clothes, making him a hero of society. Two green moose travel back in time to see him be honored for his wonderful invention, bringing a statue made of all the world's dirty laundry. Then... it rains... washing off everyone's painted clothes. The future changes- the moose lose their antlers and body fat, and the Lumpus statue reverts back to a mountain of filthy clothes. Prickly Pines's people scramble to cover up in said clothes, then form an angry mob to attack Lumpus. However... a policeman shows up with a cow... and it's an older Heffer! Heffer says he's the actual Camp Kidney scoutmaster and Lumpus is an impersonator, who locked him up from the very start of the show. Lumpus gets put in a straightjacket and hauled off to prison. Despite this, Lazlo somehow sees a bright side, though Edward immediately calls him out for it. Finally, the campers, stuck in the buff, all walk offscreen, while Sampson gets the last line of the show, where he lampshades the whole ordeal and pretty much sums up why this is the last episode:
    Samson: It's official. Things can't get any weirder around here.
  • Crazy Awesome: Clam. It's like The Ace and a Cloudcuckoolander combined. When Clam attempts anything, it tends to be very weird, but always successful. He does not swim. He walks on water.
  • Ho Yay: Irreconcilable Dungferences
    • In one episode, the scouts are going camping, and Edward forgot to bring a sleeping bag, so he tries sharing a sleeping bag with every other camper. Not enough? When he tries Lazlo's, Edward feels Lazlo's PJs and asks what they're made of. Lazlo replies that he sleeps in the nude.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The episode "Creepy Crawly Campy" could be considered Nightmare Fuel, since it was most likely intended to be scary. The fact that it's a kid's show is the only thing holding it back.
    • "Meatman", especially the ending.
  • So Okay, It's Average: Although it's not as funny as most of its contemporary Cartoon Network shows, and doesn't dodge the Radar as much as Joe Murray's previous show, it's still an altogether decent show with more than a few Funny Moments. It did win an Emmy after all. It also doesn't help that the show aired around the time Cartoon Network went into Network Decay by airing live-action shows and movies and the few cartoons it had were initially brushed off as fairly mediocre (this show, Chowder, and The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack), but have more-or-less been Vindicated by History.
  • The Woobie: Samson. Definitely Samson.
