YMMV: Mr. Show
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: All of Jeepers Creepers Semi-star. Also the remix of the theme song from the third episode. The theme song itself could count.
  • Cult Classic: Although never a mainstream success, the show launched a number of notable comedic careers and enjoys a dedicated following from audiences and comics alike. It's also considered one in a handful of modern sketch shows that is often considered as good as or better than Saturday Night Live.
  • Ear Worm: Several
    • The theme song probably tops all the other examples.
    • "Legend, a legend, a third wheel legend . . ."
    • "'Cause I'm a Superstar, in a Superstar machine . . ."
    • "Chirpity Doo Da, Shiminy Shake, Look who's got his very first date . . ."
    • All the songs in FUZZ: The Musical, but especially Ronnie's.
    • Goin' on a Holiday
    • New San Francisco
    • You've got to follow your balloon . . .
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: This AV Club article notes that "Pre-Natal Pageant" is a lot less effective when certain shows have portrayed even more cringing sights than anything in that sketch.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • Several sketches became this. Particularly "Blow Up the Moon" when you consider that NASA later bombed the Moon.
    • Bob Odenkirk appears in a sketch mocking cheesy lawyer commercials. Twelve years later, he appeared in Breaking Bad as Saul Goodman (who is slated to have his own spin-off called Better Call Saul), a lawyer who litters Albuquerque with similar cheesy commercials.
  • Ho Yay: Enough to warrant its own page
  • Nausea Fuel: This is Titannica's reaction to the body of their fan Adam Jimmy.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Sarah Silverman, Jack Black, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Tom Kennynote , Paul F Tompkins, Brian Posehn and Scott Adsit all got their start here. Also somewhat applicable to David Cross and Bob Odenkirk. The show also features the first use of "Puscifer," the name that Maynard James Keenan's would eventually give his avant garde side projects.
  • The Woobie: Oddly enough, the first character Odenkirk plays in the show.
    Ernie: Wow, he's really changed. He used to be a nice guy, but now he's kinda mean . . .
