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: Loonette asks Molly if sheíd like her to tickle her, and Molly refuses, despite having liked it before. Loonette accepts it and tells the audience itís her body, so itís her choice. Thatís a very strong message for a kid's show.
  • 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.
  • 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.
