* ArtisticLicenseBiology: In "The Incredible Shrinking Weasel", the gluteus maximus is portrayed as a bone. It is actually a muscle.


This cartoon was originally a bunch of shorts in ''WesternAnimation/CowAndChicken''. Later on, it became a self-contained SpinOff. 79 episodes were released between 1997 and 2000, some of which were packaged with the ''Cow and Chicken'' episodes. When both shows ended and were put in reruns, they became their own separate shows, including frequent character crossovers.

The show is based on the nursery rhyme, Pop Goes The Weasel, complete with matching tune.

Added DiffLines:

* VocalDissonance: Short, shrimpy Weasel speaks with the docile, sophisticated tones of Michael Dorn.


* DoubleEntendre: In "Unsinkable I.R.", Weasel turns to Baboon and says: "Mr. Baboon! Where is the first mate!?", to which the Baboon replies "Oh, he's down in the hold... waxing the dinghy." And then immediately the camera begins to pan downwards through the boat towards the hold.



* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: The show is cut from the same cloth as its parent show, ''WesternAnimation/CowAndChicken'', but it's not as heavy on dubious content as the former show. That doesn't mean that dubious content doesn't crop up from time to time.
** The Red Guy's [[PunnyName punny names]] referring to his lower nudity ("Cleo-Pantless," "Uncle Breezybum," etc) are one returning element from ''Cow and Chicken''.
** After I.M. Weasel is blasted with fairy dust in "I.R. Pixie Fairy", his parting words to his girlfriend are, "Now that I'm a fairy, I must leave you."
*** In the same episode while telling the story, Red Guy says that Weasel pixie fairy king is also a "voluptuous pixie fairy king". Cue Weasel growing breasts and wide hips.
** In "This Bridge Not Weasel Bridge" :
---> '''Bridge Worker:''' I'll get to see my wife and kids! I've never even seen my little Johnny; he was born ''two years'' after I took this job!
** Probably the most glorious example of this trope in history is in "Unsinkable I.R.". At one point, Weasel turns to Baboon and says: "Mr. Baboon! Where is the first mate!?", to which the Baboon replies "Oh, he's down in the hold... waxing the dinghy." And then immediately the camera begins to pan downwards through the boat towards the hold.
** "Baboon Man and Boy Weasel"
*** When informing Baboon Man and Boy Weasel of the pants thief and how the criminals' victims have been forced to wear barrels, one of the downsides to barrel-wearing that Police Chief Hiney (the Red Guy) brings up is that the barrels have splinters and that there are parts that should never get splinters in them.
*** Boy Weasel asks who would commit such a heinous crime and Chief Hiney replies by saying that there is no need for profanity.
** In "I Are A Artiste", the Red Guy paints a picture of his mother, but instead of painting his mother, he paints a literal horse's ass.

* UnreliableNarrator: The show once did a strange origin story for both I.M Weasel and I.R. Baboon (Baboon is a no-talent comedian and Weasel is a country singer who often comes to Baboon's rescue). It had an unidentified narrator with a somewhat deep Southern accent. At the end of the story, his voice drastically changes and he's revealed to be Jolly Roger, who of course made it all up.

In "I Stand Corrected", one of the inmates at the correctional facility has a "Fred" device attached to his backside. When removed, he turns out to have a full conjoined twin stuffed under there somehow.somehow.
** Baboon and Weasel speed past a pair of conjoined twins and cause them to separate in the episode "Magnificent Motorbikini".


** Probably the most glorious example of this trope in history is in an episode where Weasel and Baboon are crewing some king of ship. At some point Weasel turns to Baboon and says: "Mr. Baboon! Where is the first mate!?", to which the Baboon replies "Oh, he's down in the hold... waxing the dinghy." And then immediately the camera begins to pan downwards through the boat towards the hold.

* IJustWantToBeSpecial: I.R. Baboon, if not also trying to one-up Weasel.Weasel, just wants to be as revered and praised as Weasel is.


Added DiffLines:

* ToiletHumour:
** "Power of Odor" involves the town becoming unbearably stinky because of I.R.'s bean-eating pigs, a not-so-sublte flatulence joke.
** "I Am My Lifetime" shows baby I.R. accidentally putting on a soiled diaper in a flashback and the episode ends with the now elderly I.R. making that mistake again.


** Doubly funny when you realize Red and Baboon are both voiced by [[Creator/CharlieAdler Buster Bunny]].
** In the episode "I Am My Lifetime", Weasel is a resident at the Olde Cartoon Stars Retirement Home, where one of the residents is WesternAnimation/JonnyQuest, and Weasel even mentions he's an, "Angry, retired teenager". Later still, when Baboon leaves the Trailer for Old Cartoon Sidekicks to sneak back into the Olde Cartoon Stars Retirement Home (and apparently this wasn't the first time he did so), he throws him out by saying, "Beat it, Old Original Version of Johnny Quest!"
