YMMV: Guess With Jess
  • Accidental Innuendo: Of the "Fun with Synonyms" type. Only on the soundtrack album that has never been released outside the UK. The expanded version of the song "Keep Cool" has the lyrics "This one man band's gonna blow this fan" sung by Horace, followed by "Blow one man band, blow your fan!" by the rest of the cast, and then followed by what sounds like the cast sputtering and blowing for a short period. Uh...
  • Ear Worm: Some of the songs, and the theme title tune.
  • In Name Only: The song Umbrella on the soundtrack. It's not a cover of Rhianna's song of the same name.
  • The Bechdel Test: Passed with genders equally split- there's four male characters, four female characters, and they never talk about the opposite gender.
  • Viewer Gender Confusion: There have been reported cases of people mistaking Billie for a male.
    • Carrying over from Postman Pat, it's very easy to mistake Jess for a female. The name doesn't help.
