The 1963-1966 TV Series:
- Seasonal Rot: Season 3. Between the colorization and the frequent time travel and other gimmicks, it just doesn't have the same tone as the previous seasons.
- Values Dissonance: The usual sexism for that period, perhaps leavened by If Its You Its OK. In "The Matchmakers", a young couple, Howard and Marsha, have split up and Martin engineers their reunion by sending Howard a message that Marsha is seeing someone else. Howard comes storming up to her door and when she tries to slam it in his face he forces his way in.
- In "Poor Little Rich Cat", we're supposed to be amused/outraged that a woman left $650,000 to her cat and take it for granted that her relatives are exploiting the fund. Today, many more people are aware of what can happen to a beloved animal when its human dies, and providing for it is considered normal. Also, a trust fund is used to do this, not a will.
The 1999 Movie:
- Ensemble Darkhorse: Zoot.
- Nightmare Fuel: That big green alien Lizzie turns into at the climax. After turning into it, she violently throws a Mook into a computer where it explodes, and she eats the other guard whole. The latter turns into an incident of The Mind Is a Plaything of the Body. Consider what probably happened when she ate the guard and turned back to normal. Indigestion much?
- The Scrappy: Zoot for some.
- Squick: The old man with the dancing pecs. Try to unsee it.
- The scientists ripping out Martin's antennae. Ouch.
- Martin's bloated, disgusting belly after gorging himself on ice cream.
- What Do You Mean, It's for Kids?: For a family film, there is plenty of un-family friendly elements in it. Plenty of subtle yet somewhat blatant sexual jokes, not to mention Mooks getting killed pretty horrifyingly.
