YMMV / Too Close for Comfort

  • Retroactive Recognition:
    • Jeff Reno and Ron Osborn wrote four episodes. Both are best known as co-developers and co-executive producers of Duckman.
    • Bruce Kalish wrote two episodes. Kalish is best known as creator and executive producer of Aaron Stone, and as a producer on Power Rangers during the mid-2000s (though his installments are often seen as a Dork Age).
    • Jim Geoghan wrote an episode. Geoghan is best known as co-creator and co-executive producer of The Suite Life of Zack and Cody.
    • Aaron Ruben also wrote an episode. Ruben is best known as creator and executive producer of Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C..
  • Tear Jerker: At the end of "For Every Man, There's Two Women" in one of the most unintentionally sad moments in sitcom history, Monroe thanks Henry, and tells him that it's nice to know that if this ever happens again, he will be there to help guide and protect him. Henry immediately tells him that next time this happens (read: Monroe gets raped or something else bad), he's completely on his own.
  • Values Dissonance: "For Every Man, There's Two Women" is viewed very critically today, due to the idea of a man's rape being used for humor, as well as the implication that if a woman rapes someone, it's only considered rape if the woman is fat or unattractive.
  • The Woobie: Monroe, given how his parents and Henry treat him.
