These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Salute Your Shorts
Adaptation Displacement: The show is based on the 1986 book Salute Your Shorts: Life at Summer Camp by Steve Slavkin.
Incidentally the main writer on the show and the voice of Dr. Kahn.
Also, a commercial for the show using the tune of the "Colonel Bogey March":
"Ug! one time his face turned blue!
Ug! he likes to punish you!
Ug, he is a slug,
so be a bug and bug ug today!"
Or this one using this tune of "I'm in the Lord's Army":
"The great big gob is known to all as Donkeylips
He will share his dancing tips, hates to go on camping trips
He will crush you, got stuck in a pumpkin too
You should smell his socks!"
Genius Bonus: In Shakespeare's Hamlet, the title character observes that "a man may fish with the worm that hath eat of a king, and eat of the fish that hath fed of that worm" and therefore "a king may go a progress through the guts of a beggar."
Pinsky: Think about it. When you die they stick you in the ground and it's the worms that eat you up!
Z.Z.: Then somebody digs up the worms that ate you and use to catch fish which somebody else eats.
Donkeylips: So wait a second guys, when we had fish sticks the other night, I could have eaten a fish, that ate a worm, that ate Elvis?
Z.Z.: You could be burping up the King as we speak!
The really interesting thing, though is that Pinsky's actor, Blake Soper, would become Blake Sennett and co-found Rilo Kiley....
Tear Jerker: Ug gets a letter from his girlfriend saying she's coming to visit, but nobody has the heart to tell him that another letter came explaining that the first was sent to him by mistake and was meant for her new boyfriend. Ug spends all day waiting excitedly at the camp entrance with a big wooden heart for her only to have his broken when she doesn't show.
When Michael is about to leave camp and sees his friends waving goodbye. But he tells Ug to stop the car and decides to stay.
The Woobie: Ug usually, after dealing with those kids it's no wonder he's so high-strung.
