YMMV / Harry Enfield and Chums

  • Acceptable Targets: Scousers. Also teenagers, if Kevin The Teenager is anything to go by.
  • Like Father, Like Son: In one episode, Kevin is shown to have a crush on an attractive English teacher. At a Parent's Evening, Kevin is so smitten with her he can barely manage to respond when his mother and teacher talk to him. When it's time to leave, it is shown that Kevin's dad is just as captivated by her, staring (and smiling) as if in a trance.
  • Memetic Mutation:
  • "Seinfeld" Is Unfunny: Wayne and Waynetta Slob were supposed to be over-the-top caricatures of every negative stereotype of poor council-estate dwellers but since the word 'chav' entered the national consciousness and everyone started doing it, they seem unoriginal and not particularly funny.
  • Sequel Displacement: In a sense. Kevin The Teenager is really a sequel to the "Little Brother" series of sketches but, while anybody in the UK who watched comedy shows in the nineties will be able to quote Kevin and even imitate his mannerisms, very few of them will know that he evolved from the Little Brother character. (Unless, of course, they saw the sketch where the transformation occurred: at the exact moment he turned 13.)
