YMMV: Mother Goose and Grimm
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: This strip and this one, released quite a few years before the incident with Roy Horn and the white tiger. As The Simpsons' writers surmised, it was simply inevitable.
  • Shallow Parody: A Jeopardy gag involving a cow who competes on the show. Not only is she given only five categories instead of six, the host is a smiley, stereotypical one instead of a pastiche of Alex Trebek.
    • Similarly, a gag with zombies on The Newlydead Game has a smiley host and the zombies failing to hit a buzzer, even though The Newlywed Game does not involve buzzers.
  • What an Idiot: Grimmy in the Road animation: he stands out in the middle of the road until a truck hits him.
