YMMV: The Tourettes Guy
  • Broken Base: The 2004-2007 episodes versus the 2009-present episodes.
  • Dude, Not Funny!: Considering it's about a guy with "Tourette's", plenty of moments in this series can be considered this.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: The bird, which quickly became beloved due to managing to fight Danny and practically win despite, y'know, being a bird. It's often given the Memetic Badass treatment amongst fans.
  • He's Just Hiding: Despite reportedly being killed in a car crash in 2007, Danny has appeared in four new videos. The website claims that he was actually in prison.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Danny is a loud and abrasive jerk, but with all the abuse he gets, the divorce he suffered through (apparently caused by his wife banging other men behind his back), and his abusive father, it's not hard to understand why he's such a prick.
  • Memetic Badass
    • Danny's son treats Rick Moranis as one, saying he and his friends might come looking for revenge after Danny insulted him.
    • Also the bird, who managed to KO Danny with one hit to the face.
  • Memetic Mutation
  • One-Scene Wonder: The bird, the angry janitor, and the guy who gave Danny an epic Death Glare after being woken up from his nap.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: Danny was set to be on Wheel of Fortune before he was bumped. Could you imagine?
    • WOF's family-friendly television standards do not permit swearing. The handlers of the contestants probably did a background check on him and that's all she wrote. Even if it did happen, that episode would probably never be allowed to air... and likely show up online instead.
  • Unfortunate Implications: Defied. The creators were fully aware of the implications of Danny's behavior would be. As they point out on the main page, Danny is often seen drinking heavily on-screen and his insane behavior probably has more to do with that than any actual disorders he has.
  • What an Idiot: It may be the Tourette's. It may be the alcohol. Either way, Danny has not shown himself to be too bright, and it seems to run in the family.
