YMMV: Urbanus
  • Crosses the Line Twice: Many, many times
  • Dude, Not Funny!: Same as above
  • Ethnic Scrappy: Non-Caucasians will frequently be portrayed in ways that can be considered racially or ethnically offensive.
    • Case in point is a black kid called "Het Negerken" ("The Little Nigger"), but who is otherwise treated with respect by the others.
  • The Scrappy: Many characters are this to some fans.
  • Unfortunate Implications: In the early years (80-90's), the black kid in Urbanus's class was usually referred as "Het Negerke", which means "The Little Nigger/Negro". Of course, time passes and even the writers realised the name is wrong, so from 2000 onwards, the boy is giving the name of Botswana.
  • What Do You Mean, It's Not for Kids?? Although very popular with kids the comic often shows vulgar, sexual, violent or anti-establishment scenes or topics that aren't suitable for young children.
    • An Egregious example would be Urbanus in 3D, with lots and lots of nudity in 3D.
