* BigLippedAlligatorMoment:
** After Mulberry [[http://www.platypuscomix.net/mulberry/index.php?issue=8&page=7 prevents]] some [[CartoonAllStarsToTheRescue cartoon all-stars]] from making Jack endure anti-piracy lectures in "Jack the Ripper," she never mentions meeting them again. WordOfGod says this was originally going to be part of a BrickJoke, with additional cartoon characters appearing later to lecture Jack, but the second scene would have disrupted the flow.
** Mulberry does [[http://www.platypuscomix.net/mulberry/index.php?issue=20&page=6 some pretty random things]] after Brittany Murphy's death in "Murphy's Lawn" causes her to think about all the people she took for granted lately.
** The [[http://www.platypuscomix.net/mulberry/index.php?issue=24&page=7 two]]-[[http://www.platypuscomix.net/mulberry/index.php?issue=24&page=8 page]] ''[[Film/TheNeverendingStory Neverending Story]]'' homage in "Mulberry's 2012 Fall TV Preview".
* BizarroEpisode: [[http://www.platypuscomix.net/mulberry/index.php?issue=21&pageType=index&seriesID=4 "Mulberry's Epic Yarn"]] starts out as a parody of ''VideoGame/KirbysEpicYarn'', then becomes progressively stranger, until they reveal that [[spoiler: Mulberry wrote the issue herself, apparently warping hers and Taffy's reality]].

* GeniusBonus: John K's [[http://www.platypuscomix.net/mulberry/index.php?issue=15&page=18 list of enemies]] in "Artifacting" includes several famous animators and cartoon writers (plus [[http://www.toonzone.net/ ToonZone]] founder Eileen Cruz).
* HarsherInHindsight: "My Fat Lady" ends with the less crude Creator/MelissaMcCarthy helping ''Film/Ghostbusters2016'' earn a reception as glowing as that of ''Film/Ghostbusters1984'', prompting Sony to greenlight yet another ''Ghostbusters'' movie, this time with all male leads. The hopes that ''Ghostbusters'' would boast one of [=McCarthy=]'s least crude performances would eventually come true, but none of the other predictions would. Some time after the release of "My Fat Lady", Sony canceled their plans for another all-male Ghostbusters team.[[note]]Though since this story foresaw an all-white team led by a high-as-a-kite Creator/SethRogen, this would only feel harsh to readers who would have wanted to see this reboot with different actors.[[/note]] Even later, ''Ghostbusters (2016)'' would only earn a SoOkayItsAverage critical reception and box office performance[[note]]a 73% Website/RottenTomatoes score vs. the original's 97%, and a worldwide gross that covered the production budget, but not advertising[[/note]], leaving Sony to question the feasibility of another movie.
* HeartwarmingInHindsight: Before Mulberry goes to help Melissa [=McCarthy=] prepare for ''Ghostbusters'' in "My Fat Lady", she uses a clip of ''Series/GilmoreGirls'' to demonstrate that she was ActuallyPrettyFunny before becoming pigeonholed as degrading BigFun and FatBastard characters, then hopes, "The damage is bad, but not irreversible. The funny person has to still be inside her, somewhere." In real life, Paul Feig must have managed to find her without Mulberry's help; while the next two roles [=McCarthy=] would play for him ([[Film/{{Spy}} Susan Cooper]] and the aforementioned Abby Yates) do have moments of social awkwardness and clumsiness, they ultimately seem more defined by their intellect and combat skills than their weight. (After the first ''Ghostbusters'' trailer premiered, Peter [[http://www.toonzone.net/first-full-ghostbusters-trailer-arrived-watch-now/ thanked God]] that it at least didn't contain any fat jokes.) Additionally, a Creator/{{Netflix}} ''Gilmore Girls'' revival, written by the original show's creator (Amy Sherman-Palladino), would give [=McCarthy=] the chance to ''really'' return to her old comedic style.
* HilariousInHindsight:
** "Mulberry's 2004 Fall TV Preview" [[http://www.platypuscomix.net/mulberry/index.php?issue=1&page=3&seriesID=4 describes]] ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' as, "...the heartwarming tale of a misfit ninja who has a demon killer fox in his belly button!" Taking this quote out of context today, it could sound like a combination of ''Naruto'' and ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', the titular character of which has a magic gem in his belly button.
** In "Mulberry's Epic Yarn", Mulberry [[http://www.platypuscomix.net/mulberry/index.php?issue=21&page=10 shoots]] [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Willow Rosenberg]] with her FingerGun, then proclaims, "That's official canon, by the way." Later, ''Webcomic/FreeSpirit'' would allow Jessie Harper, another TV character portrayed by Willow's actress, to become a key part of the Platypus Comix oeuvre.
** From "My Fat Lady":
*** ''Batman vs. Batman'' from "My Fat Lady" seems to unintentionally reflect future complaints that ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'' makes Batman's and Superman's philosophies too similar, compared to the comics.
*** Mulberry's ImagineSpot about tasteless fat jokes ''Film/Ghostbusters2016'' could make includes one where Melissa [=McCarthy=] loudly eats a sandwich during an investigation. Swap [=McCarthy=] with Kate [=McKinnon=], and replace the sandwich with Pringles, and this would perfectly match an actual gag in the movie.
*** Kate [=McKinnon=]'s absence from Mulberry's list of alternate female Ghostbusters seems to suggest that [[ItWillNeverCatchOn she doubts McKinnon's potential to become one of her time's greatest comediennes]], which might sound ironic to readers who now [[AndYouThoughtItWouldFail consider her the funniest star]] of ''Ghostbusters (2016)''.
* MorePopularSpinoff: The Platypus Comix website has a healthy archive of ''Mulberry'' comics, but none for ''Marin Meadow'', the comic where Mulberry Sharona and Jack first appeared.
* NauseaFuel:
** Readers of "Obamadramarama" see [[spoiler:UsefulNotes/HillaryRodhamClinton]]-possessed Mulberry as [[http://www.platypuscomix.net/mulberry/index.php?issue=16&page=14&seriesID=4 an old woman wearing a Mulberry wig and outfit]].
** In "Mulberry's Wraparounds", the last commercial that Mulberry and her friends endure promotes Skittles with the tagline, "Vomit the rainbow! Taste the rainbow!" WordOfGod says the visuals, which the readers fortunately don't see, involve people barfing Skittles into each other's mouths.

* ShallowParody: "Outtatime" replaces the holographic ''JustForFun/{{Jaws 19}}'' ad with a giant Creator/MelissaMcCarthy hologram, who chomps Marty to promote the comedy ''Unsubtle''. While this provides a slam at movies wasting [=McCarthy=] as FatComicRelief, her filmography for 2015 doesn't contain any movies making jokes about her overeating--just the espionage spoof ''Film/{{Spy}}'', in which she played an adorkable yet genuinely witty and resourceful CIA agent.[[note]]The closest thing ''Spy'' has to a joke about Melissa [=McCarthy=] overeating involves her character [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oTqtVnXQwxQ eating a hand towel]] while in a fancy restaurant, instead of using it to wipe her hands. However, this functions more as a contrast between her naivete and typical movie spies' sophisticated personas (the size and folding of the towel caused her to mistake it for a fancy appetizer, and it doesn't help that a later scene reveals that some restaurants really ''do'' serve appetizers in that shape), than a jab at her eating habits.[[/note]]
* {{Squick}}: "Murphy's Lawn" has Creator/BrittanyMurphy get [[spoiler: [[http://www.platypuscomix.net/mulberry/index.php?issue=20&page=19 raped by a unicorn]] and left to eventually give birth to a HalfHumanHybrid "Human-Corn"]] at the end of her last movie. Fortunately, the readers don't get to see the disgusting parts.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: "Death By Captain and Tenille" [[http://www.platypuscomix.net/mulberry/index.php?issue=10&page=17 ends]] with Mulberry and her friends obtaining [[{{Transformers}} Optimus Prime]], but does not show any adventures they have with him.
