YMMV / The Big Comfy Couch

  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment/Moment of Awesome: In "Pants on Fire", a conversation between Loonette and Major Bedhead escalates into this.
  • Ear Worm: The theme song.
    • The Foley Dollhouse theme song will stay stuck in your head for a good hour or so.
  • Hide Your Pregnancy: Averted. Loonette's clown suit was baggy enough to hide the fact that Alyson was pregnant in her last season.
  • Paranoia Fuel: Hey kids! If you don't eat your vegetables they'll come back to haunt you in your sleep and yell at you.
  • Replacement Scrappy: Ramona Gilmour-Darling. When replacing a dearly-loved actor for a main character, it's almost inevitable, unfortunately.
  • Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: A scene that has become increasingly popular in recent years, especially as sexual assault is becoming more and more of a public issue, is one of Loonette asking Molly if shed like her to tickle her. Molly refuses, despite having liked it before. Loonette accepts it and tells the audience its her body, so its her choice. When shared, there's usually some caption about how this is just as important for adults as it is for children.
  • Special Effects Failure: A lot of episodes, but it happened a lot in the final 2 seasons the most.
  • Tear Jerker: The episode "Full of Life" where Loonette befriends a caterpillar and the caterpillar later dies and Granny Garbonzo sings a song about death. Major Bedhead even cries.
    • Any time Molly is sad; notably in episodes where Loonette accidentally hurts her feelings (examples include the episodes "Ping Pong Polka", "Sticks And Stones", and "Time for Molly").
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: A lot of fans were not happy with Alyson Court being replaced with Ramona Gilmour-Darling.
  • Uncanny Valley: Some of the merchandise. The show is about clowns, fair enough. But then they had to make a Loonette doll that looked like this, and adding salt to the wound, put in a voice chip as well. Wonder how many kids were scared stiff when they received one.
