Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationInducedPlotHole: Sort of. Torgo has really big prosthetic knees for no apparent reason. The reason was originally a satyr but the silhouettes of the bots made it impossible to see his hooves. Counts as a downplayed example because it's [[VoodooShark never explained WHY he is a satyr or why being a satyr would make him have big knees]].


* Analysis/BreakingCharacter: Tom and Crow [[BreakTheCutie wind up doing this]] during the driving sketch because of the "Manos" driving footage.


* LeaveTheCameraRunning: [[{{In-universe}} Background variant]]: Cambot accidentally keeps the "Manos" driving footage going when Officer Gypsy had "pulled over" Joel and the bots during the driving sketch.

* ShoutOut: During one of the skits, there's a subtle parody of ''Film/ItsAWonderfulLife'' when Frank, after apologizing for the awfulness of the film, encourages Joel, Tom, and Crow to keep playing.[[note]][[PopculturalOsmosisFailure For those who don't get it]], it's referencing the scene where George returns home after failing to find the check, eventually snaps at his family, and then immediately apologizes. He tries getting his daughter, Janie, to resume playing the piano, but she's too terrified to do so.[[/note]]
