Big things are happening on TV Tropes! New admins, new designs, fewer ads, mobile versions, beta testing opportunities, thematic discovery engine, fun trope tools and toys, and much more - Learn how to help here and discuss here.
These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Also, "Don't Make Me Laugh." Cheesy lyrics? Yes. But it's sung by Tim Curry.
Marina's reprise of "Sometimes I Wonder" is a surprising improvement over the first performance sung by Hubie.
Ear Worm: "Don't make me laugh! HAHAHAHA! Don't make me laugh! HAHAHAHAHA! My funny friend, don't make me BEEEEEND in HALF! Don't be a card, babe, don't mess with Drake, don't make me laugh so hard that you begin to ache!"
Ho Yay Shipping: Hubie and Rocko. Plenty of viewers can attest to seeing it. Particularly during their Friend Song.
There's scenes where it's Played for Laughs, such as Rocko waking up with his arms around Hubie, and not realizing it until Hubie's already wide awake, or times when you swear it was done on purpose, like later in that same scene where Hubie says, "It's beautiful!" and Rocko (who is looking down at Hubie or a moment) stutters and says yes, too, before seeing that Hubie was talking about an iceberg.
Moral Event Horizon: Drake makes no attempts to hide the fact he'll beat Marina if she doesn't do as he says. He also outright threatens her with death if she refuses to mate with him during Don't Make Me Laugh, saying she'll "be a shark's dinner" and that he'll write her epitaph if she refuses. This is flat out rape through threats to her well-being. Similar to Gaston, Drake at first seemed like just a Jerk Jock but then shows he's much more evil than that.
Ugly Cute: Though as the poster shows, some of the characters fail at the cute part. To be fair, in the movie Drake's the only really ugly one. Hubie and Rocko just happen to be caught in rather unflattering poses.
