YMMV: The League of Gentlemen
  • Ensemble Darkhorse - Papa Lazarou has only had a few appearances, but is probably the series' best-known and best-loved character.
  • Memetic Mutation - "Hello DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAVE!"
    • "You're my wife now!"
    • "This is a local meme for local people. There's nothing for you here."
    • Within-universe, it is strongly implied that "Excuse me, has anybody got a bottle of orange juice?" becomes a meme.
  • Moment Of Awesome:
    • One of Tish's "friends" finally telling her off in Live at Drury Lane.
    I am not a girl! I'm a man! And at least I've had a boyfriend, unlike YOU, YOU STUPID FUCKING SHIT!
    • In an episode that seems to be all about screwing over every last one of the series' Staight Men, it is absurdly satisfying to see Ross tell Pauline that he's actually been an auditor this whole time, and that he's collected enough evidence of her violent and belittling behavior to ensure she'll never work in the government again in the first series finale.
  • Nightmare Retardant: The build-up to the exact appearance and nature of the "Beast of Royston Vasey" feels almost unbearable...until one of the autopsy crew is radioed about the roundabout zookeeper missing animals which just happen to be the same ones the Beast was said to contain elements from.
  • Paranoia Fuel - Herr Lipp's subplot in the Christmas Special.
  • Spiritual Successor: Psychoville, several years later.
  • The Woobie - Mickey, Les, and any animal who gets anywhere near Mr. Chinnery.
    • Hell, Mr. Chinnery himself, a chipper, happy man who loves animals and yet will inevitably kill any he gets close to.
