YMMV: KYTV
  • Accidental Innuendo: The constantly-giggling "Uncle" Mike Stand was the undisputed master of these, which led to (deliberate by the writers) Unfortunate Implications, since he was a child show host. This was probably the in-universe reason why he was Put on a Bus in later seasons.
    • Certain names and titles had them as well; most notably the resident daredevil, "The oh-so-daring Mike Hunt" or debate programs with the title "Mass Debate." These were always pronounced very carefully.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Repeatedly. Every single episode of Radio Active, and quite a few episodes of KYTV, had at least one, often two, pre-recorded songs written by Phillip Pope and recorded by the cast, parodying various popular artists, genres or songs. One of them, Meaningless Songs In Very High Voices by "The Hee Bee Gee Bees" (parody of The Bee Gees) even became a minor hit.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Martin Brown. He doesn't show up until the fourth season of Radio Active and seems intended as a one-off character (as the episode ends with him being fired), but he returned after a couple of episodes and became the most popular of the recurring characters.
  • Growing the Beard: Radio Active took until the second season to completely gel; the first season is amusing enough but suffers from a lot of Early-Installment Weirdness (the presenters are largely interchangeable and personality-less, and the focus is less on their incompetence and more on parodies and eccentric guests) the writing is less sharp, containing a bit of repetitiveness and drawn-out jokes — but by the second season the scriptwriters had found their groove and the show had found its form.
  • The Woobie: Martin Brown, most definitely. Mike Channel too has moments of this, but is more of a Jerkass Woobie.
