YMMV / Undergrads

  • Animation Age Ghetto: Even in 2001, it wasn't kosher for a cartoon to feature nudity, binge drinking, and sex.
  • Cult Classic: Whilst the show was notorious for a while for being cancelled, it had a pretty vocal fanbase during the early 2000's. By 2006 it had mostly fallen into quiet obscurity.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: The show has been run for over a decade on Canada's Teletoon (who helped finance the show), despite its brief run.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: In "Risk," Nitz complains about Good Charlotte by asking what he would know them for. At the time, it's just a joke about Good Charlotte being a relatively unknown band, with a bit of Biting-the-Hand Humor because the band provided the show's theme song. A year later, they released their breakthrough hit.
  • Ho Yay:
    • Rocko had a sex dream about Cal once. And in a scene where Nitz is messing around in a photobooth, Dan kisses him on the cheek.
    • Mump is kind of clingy and protective of his relationship with Gimpy, going so far as to sabotage Gimpy's friendship with Nitz, and Gimpy does seem to care for him above the other minions, worrying about, missing and later hugging him when Mump got carpal tunnel.
    • Cal once said "I love that guy." about Gimpy (episode being Rivalries). Sure, he's an idiot, but he also got completely broken up when Nitz left the dorm in Roommates and replaced him with a watermelon labeled 'Nitz Guy'. And judging by the flashbacks, Nitz is always the guy Cal wants to do stuff with. Heck, he's probably so stupid, he doesn't even know his sexuality; he just does whoever jumps on him.
    • Nitz and Gimpy's "Oh you..."
  • Memetic Mutation: "I am 21 so drinking is yes." Seems legit.
  • Rule of Funny: How could an arcade/Game Boy game emulator that Gimpy programmed clock in at over 600 GB? How did Gimpy transfer such a mammoth file to Nitz's computer in only a couple seconds? Why did transferring it cause parts of Tekerson Tech to *explode?* Basically, this in a nutshell.
