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.
  • 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.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: In "Stories of Hope and Forgiveness", about everyone's day during a crisis (written in 1999) - despite the nature of the crisis never being named - feels very eerie after 9/11.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight
    • Kevin's "Bling blong" sounds an awful lot like "Bing Bong."
    • In Andy and Kevin Make a Friend, a Batman cosplayer can be seen in the background. Wallace Langham, Andy's voice actor, would later provide his voice for three separate Batman cartoons as the second Clayface, the Ocean Master, and Anarky, and Scott Menville's (Kevin) Star-Making Role would be Robin.
    • During Andy's recruitment for The Real World, he says that he wants to be a cartoonist, and one of the executives assures him it could be a stepping stone into the entertainment business. This is uncannily similar to the story of Judd Winick, a Real World participant who would later go into the comics industry and create his own animated series, The Life and Times of Juniper Lee.
  • 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.
  • 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.
