YMMV: Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!
  • Awesome Music: Groban Sings Casey.
  • Ear Worm: Multiple exams, some of which that double as Awesome Music.
    • "This is what I do, I sit on you, sit on you, sit on you!"
    • Sports!
    • The Channel Five Kid Break Raps, despite their nasty subject matters.
    • The music from the Paul Rudd's Computer sketch, particularly Tayne's theme, "Revenge" by Equalizers.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Steve Brule, anyone?
    • Casey seems to have a smaller fandom.
    • David Liebe Hart, a former public access host himself.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: As Tim and Eric are explaining their decision to "Fire [their] friends, and hire old men" in "Abstinence", Tim mentions "an old man working here named Richard Dunn, who has passed away." However, Tim goes on to say "He taught me many lessons about learning about life," (almost) turning this into a heartwarming moment.
    • From the very same episode: in the "Lazy Horse Matresses & Bedding" segment, the address of the store is "Exit #37 off the Richard Dunn Memorial Highway". Granted, Dunn was an old man by that time, but it's still kind of eerie.
    • Dunn dropping dead in the final episode, which aired very shortly before he died for real.
  • Funny Moments: Has its own page.
  • Ho Yay
  • Love It or Hate It: Everything Tim and Eric has ever done has had equal parts diehard fans and rabid haters. This is no exception.
  • Memetic Mutation: Sports!
    • Now think about your dad. What's your dad like? I wanna meet that dad.
    • It's free real estate!
  • Nausea Fuel: Far, far too many examples to count.
  • Special Effects Failure: Intentional of course.
  • Squick: Damn near everything.
    • In the final episode, Tim and Eric grow horrifyingly swollen nipples that lactate yellow "man milk". It's truly terrifying to behold.
    • The show is really fond of closeup shots of mouths overstuffed with food, complete with squishing noises.
      • Tim and Eric LOVE employing disgusting slurping, squelching and crunching noises anywhere and everywhere they can.
    • The end result of "helmet touch" in the "Sports!" number involves severe brain damage.
  • True Art Is Incomprehensible
  • Uncanny Valley: ''Child Showcase'', where little boys with the heads of Patton Oswalt and Rainn Wilson sing dirty songs. The adult heads aren't proportional to the child bodies, and the grainy video disguises the digital effects, making it look more real than it should, making the effect even more unnerving.
  • What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?: Tim & Eric have stated that even though they both smoke pot, no drugs are involved in the writing or performance, but that they can certainly make viewing more enjoyable. One sketch (of them being interviewed by Michael Ian Black) parodies the idea that drugs must be involved.
