YMMV: Stressed Eric
- Ensemble Darkhorse: Liz may be horrid to Eric, but loads find her funny!
- Magic Franchise Word: P. P.'s is arseburger.
- Nightmare Fuel: How many watchers had fond memories of watching Eric's stress vain strangle him when they were young?
- The donkey falling apart in Pony as if it was made of LEGO.
- Periphery Demographic: This cartoon has been watched by children, even though it wasn't really for kids.
- Villain Sue: The Perfects.
- What Do You Mean, It's Not for Kids?: Yes, it's a cartoon, yes, it was made in Britain, and yes, the first series was brought to you by Klasky-Csupo. But this show occasionally uses British profanity (i.e.: "arse"). And there's an episode that's all about sex. Oh, and Eric always getting strangled by his stress vain.
- The Woobie: For a father character, you can't help but feel sorry for Eric.
- Claire too, considering EVERYTHING makes her ill.
