YMMV / Mission Hill

  • Awesome Music: The series' use of ska music. Sadly though, when the series was released on DVD the producers were unable to secure the license rights to any of the music used in the broadcast and syndicated versions of the show, with the exception of Cake's 'Italian Leather Sofa'. Low-quality, muzak-esque songs back DVD episodes and for anyone who has seen the episodes on TV with the intended music, it can be a bit of a letdown. Word of God confirms this in the DVD commentary.
  • Cult Classic: Not all too well-remembered but the show still retains a sizable fanbase.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: The obscene man who whispered, "Penis Penis Penis," to Kevin on the street and Toby's mother over the phone.
    • Gus and Wally for being a realistic and positive depiction of a gay couple in an animated sitcom, which was a rarity when it aired (who would have received more appearances if the rest of the series had been completed).
    • Weirdie.
  • Fan-Preferred Couple: Kevin and Weirdie.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight
  • Memetic Mutation: PENIS PENIS PENIS PENIS PENIS.
  • Tear Jerker: In "Unemployment Part 2," Andy gets the sad news from Posey that he didn't get the job at the ad agency. Just look at his face. The colour drains from it and as he tells Jim that "I'm fine," he sounds like he's about to cry. It gets worse in the following scene where Andy is seen feeling sorry for himself as he goes back to being an unemployed slacker with Stogie.
    • Day of the Jackass could have a case for this with Andy, too, if it was not for his refusal to notice the crisis affecting the world or take it seriously.
  • Unintentionally Sympathetic: Kevin in Andy and Kevin Make a Friend. While both French brothers were painted as being petty in fighting over George's sister, Kevin made a legitimate connection with her while Andy was only interested in her sexually.
