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.
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.
