YMMV / The Angry Beavers

  • Badass Adorable: Daggett, especially in "Enter the Daggett".
  • Bizarro Episode: The show is already pretty...out there, but the tip of the iceberg would likely be "Brothers...To The End?", which has the premise of the universe suddenly coming to an end right at the turn of the millennium, and Norbert and Daggett are instructed to recreate it all over again. Words cannot describe the insanity that follows. In the end, it turns out the incident was just a mass hallucination of many of the main characters brought on by bad martinis...or was it? It's not especially made clear.
  • Broken Base: While the two main characters constantly ad libbing over one another is one of the show's biggest draws, some feel that it can make stories difficult to follow as a result.
  • Cargo Ship: Dag and "Angel Eyes" (a fishing lure).
  • Crazy Awesome: El Grapadora, Oxnard Montalvo (at least in his films). Hell, even Muscular Beaver has his moments.
  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: The flawless Roaring Rampage of Revenge Dag and Norb inflict on Bill Licking for humiliating them on national TV. In fact, Dag has to be physically restrained from killing Bill the next time they meet.
    Bill Licking: Gentlemen, how can I help you?
    Daggett: THROOOOOOOOOOAT!!!!
    • Everything about Dag and Norb fighting against Edgar the Swamp Witch, Gator Man, and their zombie slaves in "Open Wide For Zombies." Especially the high speed chase where the Beavers bring down the witch's shack on top of her and kill her.
      • Dag repeatedly kicking the crap out of Edgar and Gator Man, especially when they curse his teddy bear.
        Dag: NOOOOOOOOOO! I'll get you Gator Man, just like any other gator!
    • Whenever karma steps in to punish Norb for unprovoked Jerkass antics, include the No-Holds-Barred Beatdown he deserved for tricking everyone out of their stuff in "Dag's List," getting all his stuff stolen by Truckey in "The Posei-Dam Adventure" after doing nothing to save him or Dag, Dag driving Norb nuts in "The Big Frog," and Dag getting Norb deported in "Euro Beavers."
    • While dealing with the asshole lumberjacks who've invaded their forest, Dag's spirit is briefly broken and Norb is beyond outraged. When he goes to confront the lumberjacks again, the leader attempts to break in another song. Norb smacks him in the face twice.
    • In "Oh, Brother" Norb tries to manipulate Dag's supposed real brother, Randy (a stupider and childish version of Dag who can only laugh) into going "If Dag is an idiot, laugh real hard." Randy punches him. It then turns out Randy is infinitely more smarter and eloquent than Norb's Jerkass supposed "real" brother Byron, saying he'd been pretending to be an idiot since they were born because he didn't want to make Byron feel bad about being the stupid brother. Randy apologizes to Dag for encouraging Byron's "real brother" fantasies, and Dag says he knows how dumb brothers can be. Norb asserts he's the smart one, which Randy finds hilarious, and Norb begins to realize Dag might really be the smart one.
    • Norb and Dag teaming up with their new ghost friends to screw with Scientist #1 and Pete in "Spooky Spoots."
  • Ear Worm:
    • The theme song, which is as much "90s Nicktoon" as it is "theme to The Dating Game".
    • The ending theme as well.
    • Beaver fever!
    • Kid Friendly - don't you mess around with him!
    • I Think I Like You
    • "Go, go, go, back to Ca-na-da!"
    • I am no stoopy poopy beaver!
    • "The roller coaster was long, my stomach not strong, when you sat beside me..."
    • You call me names, and I call you more names back!
    • I am a germ-breeding tree-chomping raaaaaat.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: The Big Round Sticky Fish Thingy acts a whole lot like a Katamari...
    • In "Spooky Spoots", Norb & Dag are thinking with portals.
    • In "Enter the Daggett", Dag calls himself the "silent wind of doom. His voice actor is Richard Horvitz.
    • In Season 4's "Finger Licking Goofs" (from the year 2000), there's a joke about nature host Bill Licking being "America's #1 Bear Hater", and he rants about how bears are terrible creatures that shouldn't be trusted. Doesn't this sound a bit like Stephen Colbert, and his irrational hatred and fear of bears?
  • Moe: Daggett.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Stump's Family Reunion, when Norbert mutates because of his ear infection and eats some of Stump's family members.
    • In Yak in the Sack, the Yak was pretty creepy.
    • Finger Lickin' Goofs ends with an bear spitting out Bill Licking's wig, heavily implying that he was killed and eaten.
    • Norb getting possessed by the pond scum and taking on a demonic visage.
    • Some scenes in "The Day The World Got Really Screwed-Up!".
    • When Norb, Dag and Stump are stuck on the Earth's core in "What's Eating You?", Dag contemplates eating Stump. Norb tries to protect Stump, but eventually reveals that he wants to eat Stump himself. Not helping is how the gravity is much more intense, which causes their appearance and voices to distort.
    • At the end of "Muscular Beaver 3", Treeflower flys away...then the screen cuts to black as the sound of something getting stuck in a turbine, screaming and a plane crash is how the episode ends.
    • The Crawling Spleen from "Up All Night". While the hokey acting in the Show Within a Show horror movie may cushion the blow a little, the entity itself is pretty terrifying, especially for children; it's a manmade abomination in the form of a sentient spleen with an opposable thumb sticking out of it that slithers along the ground. In the movie proper, it ends up crawling up a lady scientist's arm and slowly inching towards her face as another scientist tells her to cover her ears so it won't eat her brain. The last we see of it, its finger is literally a single centimeter away from her ear as she screams in terror.
  • Suspiciously Similar Song: The show's soundtrack is practically a "Best of". One example is an instrumental that sounds like the beginning of Andy Williams' song, "Can't Get Used to Losing You".
    • Chelsea and Stacy's theme sounds a lot like the beginning of "Say You'll be There" [1]
    • In "You Promised!" during the brothers' race at the end, the music is almost exactly "I'm a Believer".
  • Uncanny Valley: Some of the human designs in the show can range from pretty goofy to downright frightening. For a comparison as to how wildly these models can vary, take a look at this scene from "Beach Beavers A Go-Go", where an example of a character that can easily pass as Fanservice is quickly followed by the appearance of a freaky woman that looks more bird than human.
    • Stump himself can fall into this, due to the unnerving expression permanently carved into its face and the fact that everybody treats it as if it were alive and sentient.
    • There's also Norb and Dag's cousin, which turns out to be a photo of a real-life beaver superimposed onto the animation.
  • Ugly Cute: Dag is a bit cute despite looking like more of a rat than a beaver.
  • The Woobie: Dag has his woobie-ish moments because of how much he gets abused by Norb and everyone else.
