YMMV: I Am Weasel
  • Dude, Not Funny!: As mentioned in the Fridge Logic/Horror/Brilliance section, in "The Legend of Big Butt," Baboon felt sorry for a snowman and decided to give it his clothes so it wouldn't get cold, when Baboon obviously needed it most. Weasel shrugs at the silliness and continues the mission with no second thought. This stops being fun once you realize that Baboon was in the final stage of hypothermia called "Paradoxical Undressing" (when the victim becomes so delirious that he undresses despite being in cold weather. It's why most freezing deaths are mistaken for sexual assault, since, in both cases, the victim is naked or near-naked) and was dying.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: In "The Sackless Games", the final event is a luging competition (where Weasel and Baboon ride brothers with Luge for a last name). At the end, the Red Guy says "I tried to warn them that the luge is the most dangerous event in sports, but they would not listen.". 11 years later, Nodar Kumaritashvili died in a luging accident hours before the start of the 2010 Winter Olympics.
  • Jerkass Woobie: I.R. Baboon
  • More Popular Spin Off: To an extent. While Cow and Chicken is more remembered, I Am Weasel is usually considered the superior show in terms of quality. The former got removed from Cartoon Cartoon Fridays earlier than the latter.
