YMMV: Father of the Pride

  • Acceptable Targets: One episode has a white-trash antelope and his bully son.
    • Dick Cheney
  • All Adult Animation Is South Park: One of the few examples of this trope played aggravatingly straight.
  • Crowning Moment of Funny: Pretty much everything Siegfried And Roy do.
    "I am going to travel forward in time and scowl at you! (Beat, scowls) I have arrived!"
    • This exchange:
    Sierra: "You are the worst parents EVER!!"
    Larry: "We are not! My parents were!"
  • Furry Fandom: One of the few audience that's stuck with the show post-cancilation, for obvious reasons. Unfortunately, like most explicitly furry media, this is considered the only redeeming thing about it.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Hunter.
    • Siegfried and Roy.
  • Fridge Brilliance: The 7-11 clerk in "Catnip And Trust" who ditches work to make up with his girlfriend later reveals that, after the ordeal, they went right out and got married. This may seem like a one-off gag until you remember that Las Vegas is famous for it's drive-through chapels.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: The pilot episode has a scene where Sierra snarking at a knockoff of The Lion King, the movie that had previously convinced show runner and former Disney CEO Jeff Katzenberg to angrily leave the company to start DreamWorks.
  • Just Here for Godzilla: As mentioned above, this show seems to only remain popular with a handful of furries and hardcore animation fans, while others praise the scenes of Siegfried and Roy while condemning everything else. Basically, anyone who looks for this show is doing it for any other reason than they think it's good.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Tom the white trash antelope crosses this when he encourages his son to beat up on Hunter.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Most, if not all, of the female cats, due to their wide hips and large posteriors.
  • Old Shame: DreamWorks like to forget this show never happened (thankfully, most already have), to the point that their website lists "Penguins of Madagascar" as their first TV series!
  • So Okay, It's Average: For every slew of really bad jokes, there's at least one really good one.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot
  • What Do You Mean, It's Not for Kids?: One of the bigger victims.
    • The fact that it was advertised as "from the producers of Shrek" actually got the show runners in a considerable about of trouble with the Parents Television Council.
  • The Woobie:
    • Hunter
    • Snack of all characters becomes this in One Man's Meat Is Another Man's Girlfriend. First he thinks his girlfriend was eaten by Larry. Turns out she's alive and she dumped him.
    • Tommy the coyote from the episode Road Trip. He spends most of the episode acting like a hyperactive Plucky Comic Relief. Near the end of the episode, he pretty much soldifies himself as a Sad Clown.
