YMMV: Yatterman
  • Ear Worm: The first theme song will stay on your head forever. Uuuuuu wan wan wan Uuuuuuu jin jin jin...
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: The Doronbo gang, especially Doronjo, Boyacky, Tonzura and Odate Bute. It's part of the reason of why they are in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: Italy is the only country in the world where all the episode of the series (called Yattaman there) were bought and dubbed. Not only that: reruns of the show were very common on local channels, DVDs of all episodes were sold and you can still find a handful of dedicated cosplayers of the main characters at the Italian conventions. There were even plans of a fan-made new installment of the Time Bokan series, but sadly it never came to be.
    • Yatterman loves Italy too: the final battle of the 2009 movie is fought in the Southern Alps.
    • Same goes for Poland - somehow the Italian dubs of two series of Time Bokan found their way to a Polish TV stations. If you grew up in the nineties, chances are that this was the first anime you've watched.
    • It's also quite fondly recalled in Latin-America, even if not at the same level of the original Time Bokkan or Yattodetaman.
  • Most Wonderful Sound: Yatterwan's "WAOOOOOOOOO!" and the theme song for the Surprise Mecha attack.
  • Sequel Displacement: It can be argued that Yatterman is the most popular installment in the entire Time Bokan series. You don't see the original Time Bokan getting a revival or a movie.
  • Toy Ship: Of a very young Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
  • Ugly Cute: Boyacky and Tonzura.
  • What Do You Mean, It's for Kids?: It is, despite the nudity and the fanservice.
