* ArtEvolution: Mostly averted, as Jerry doesn't really improve as a Flash animator, but there are some differences from late 2000s YouTube episodes compared to early Newgrounds ones. Examples include more static character movements (including legs moving even when no one's walking), and better-ish talking animations and angry emotions for Jerry. Also, his mother does abruptly grow much larger in size by later episodes (and consequently becomes topless like Jon's mom.)

* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: Technically, as the Jackson family (minus Jerry's mom) are all depicted as having purple skin, while Jon and his mom have yellow skin, Jerry's mom and Merrick have white skin, and so on. Given that the series is presented as Flash animations of Jerry's life, this could all be artistic license, but we've never met Jerry in his alleged reality.

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Numerous characters are introduced as Jerry's friends or brothers, but never re-appear. Prominent examples include Collin (the title "Big Nose Man" of that episode), Jerry's psychopathic friend Steven from "Life & Death", and Jon's replacement "New Jon" from the "Scunthorpe Festival."

* IntentionalEngrishForFunny: A variation. Nearly all of the on-screen text is misspelled or not exactly accurate with Jerry's spoken dialogue, but rather than mistranslation, it's presented as (more or less) a result of Jerry's limited Flash animation ability.
** Occasional dialogue of Jerry's will be spoken incorrectly or with great effort for the amusement factor, like when he said that he made the Linkin Park cartoon for "oo" to watch, or asked Mr. George Bush ("Jorge U U Bush") was his next "strantangy" for war was.



** The whole series is basically a jab at badly made Flash cartoons.

* ReplacementScrappy: In the most recent episode to date, Jerry quits animating and starring in his show to focus on other ventures, and gives it to his older brother Casper, who had never been seen or mentioned by name until then, and who suspiciously sounds like and maintains the same animation style as Jerry. Casper actually became reasonably popular with the late night talk show-style series he launched during the episode, with many one-off past characters appearing in the audience, but Jerry disliked Casper's insults of him and took his show back at the end.


* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Numerous characters are introduced as Jerry's friends or brothers, but never re-appear. The most prominent example is the "Big Nose Man" episode, as the title character (Jerry's friend Collin) never recurs in the series.

* ItsBeenDone: Averted in the Super Mario episode, as Jerry assumes that his idea to make a Flash parody cartoon of Super Mario Bros. is totally original, and so brilliant that he will win an Oscar (and Jon agrees with him.) The episode ends with Jerry teasing that he'll be working on a parody of The Matrix next, as again, it's something no one has thought of before. By 2006? Of course not!

Added DiffLines:

* VocalEvolution: David Firth gives Jerry a higher pitched voice in some episodes ("My Friends" is a good example), and he attempts to vary the pitch for certain characters in some also, though Jerry's usual delivery never wavers. The inconsistency could be intentional, given the StylisticSuck on display.


* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Oh, so many. One example: Jon offering Jerry a Galaxy Ripple chocolate bar, with Jerry declining and asking if he has wine gums... in an episode about ''racial awareness''.



* MissingEpisode: The "Sex In The Bedroom" episode ends with a teaser for Jerry's next cartoon, about how to install a graphics card on an Amiga 1200 computer. As riveting and informative as his instructions would surely be, the episode was either fake or never released.

** Certain early characters were phased out in later episodes, particularly Jerry's dog Ben and his friend Merrick.
*** At the trope's extreme, the Linkin Park episode features Jerry giving a shout out to his friends Andi and Jon. We always see Jon, but Andi was never featured in the series before or since.
