* FormerlyFit: [[HollywoodPudgy Gotten quite a gut, eh, buddy]]? Not surprising given his overeating and binge-drinking. Especially jarring since {{flashback}}s show [=BoJack=] as having once had a pretty muscular build, back when he was young and taping ''JustForFun/HorsinAround''.

** For starters, there's his actions regarding Herb's dismissal. Was it really correct to leave out a dear pal out in the sun just for the same of pleasing the network and continue the journey in the money train? Or was it a NecessaryEvil that allowed thousands of people to remain in their cushy jobs, stopped the show from being canceled, and was therefore a tough but necessary choice? Then again, the main reason for their fallout was not the firing but that they remained out of touch for the next 20 years, yet exactly how much was in both parties is left up in the air: while Herb is hurt and mad at [=BoJack=] for dismissing him all those years without any concern for his health or life out of the business, evidence suggests the horse figured out Herb wouldn't want to see him again, since from his perspective ''JustforFun/HorsinAround'' meant just as much to both of them and his inaction led to his firing, with his refusal to meet implied to include ignoring calls or even mentions of him. Basically, "[[FairWeatherFriend you abandoned me when I needed you the most]], [[MotiveMisidentification that you can't figure that as the reason why I hate you now]] [[BurningTheShips makes it even more unforgivable]]" vs "[[EtTuBrute I thought you were mad at me for what I did to you]] [[ThisIsUnforgivable and you wouldn't want to talk afterwards]], [[BurningTheShips that's why I didn't bother]]", as a brief summary.
