* ByNoIMeanYes: When Joey tells his mother that he needs to go to a place where every man goes just to prove he's still a man. Her response?
--> '''Joey's Mom''': A whorehouse?\\
'''Joey''': No, silly goose! To the remote Alaskan wilderness, where I shall pit myself against nature's most challenging elements in a constant struggle for survival, and where, with any luck... there'll also be a whorehouse.

* BlatantLies: Joey's mom angrily asks her son if he [[spoiler:huffed glue on his way to the train station]] (which he did), but her sheepishly tells her that's ridiculous.



* CasualDangerDialogue: Subverted in that Joey doesn't realize that he's in danger, but he takes primal yells of the yeti who tries to kick him out of his home as his visitor simply being ill tempered and having a sore throat.

Added DiffLines:

* AllJustADream: It turns out Joey never went to Alaska. As soon as he left home, he huffed some glue and wandered into an arcade while high.
* BigfootSasquatchAndYeti: The abandoned trailer Joey commandeers in the tundra happens to belong to an abominable snowman, who's not happy with Joey's proposal that they move in together.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Despite being a dumb as a post and a ManChild to boot, Joey sure knows how to decorate a new home.
* CasualDangerDialogue: Subverted in that Joey doesn't realize that he's in danger, but he takes primal yells of the yeti who tries to kick him out of his home as his visitor simply being ill tempered and having a sore throat.

Added DiffLines:

* HypocriticalHumor:
** The short begins with Joey berating his mother for babying him, after which he raises his arms and goes "Up! Up! Up!"
** Later, when Joey decides to leave.
--> "Mom, I'm going to be a real man and take care of myself and ''that's final!'' Now, if you'll just wipe my bottom, I'll be on my way."
* InnocentlyInsensitive: Joey tell the yeti that the previous owner of the abandoned bus that he found had "[[{{Pun}} monstrous]] taste, simply [[HurricaneOfPuns abominable]]," unaware that said yeti is the ''current'' owner of said bus.
* IWantMyMommy: Inches away from being slaughtered by a monster, Joey screams "MOOOOOMYYYYYY!!!!!" Thankfully, she comes to get him from [[spoiler:the arcade he wandered into on a glue-induced high]].
* JewishMother: Joey's mom has hints of this. Being played by Estelle Harris (aka [[Series/{{Seinfeld}} Mrs. Constanza]]) doesn't help.
* LargeHam: Joey himself is rather over-the-top and prone to SuddenlyShouting. Of course, do you expect anything less from [[Creator/MrLawrence the guy who played]] [[WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants Plankton]]?
* LaughTrack: Added by RuleOfFunny.
* MammasBoy: The short is about Joey realizing he's one of these and deciding to do something about it.
* ManChild: Joey again, thanks to his mother babying him well into his 30s.


Added DiffLines:

* MindScrew: The yeti from [[spoiler:Joey's MushroomSamba]] ends [[spoiler:renting his room out once he comes down from his high]], with no logical explanation other than [[RuleOfFunny it's funny]].
* MyBelovedSmother: The reason that Joey never moved out of his mother's basement is that she continues to treat him like a baby. She straps him to his bed and buys him a ''baby monitor'' for his 35th birthday!
* NoExceptYes: When Joey tells his mother that he needs to go to a place where every man goes just to prove he's still a man. Her response?
--> '''Joey's Mom''': A whorehouse?\\
--> '''Joey''': No, silly goose! To the remote Alaskan wilderness, where I shall pit myself against nature's most challenging elements in a constant struggle for survival, and where, with any luck... there'll also be a whorehouse.
* NotGrowingUpSucks: The short's main conflict.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: If this actually got picked up for a series, it would either have to be severely toned down to air as a kids' show or moved to Creator/AdultSwim where it can be free to air with risqué content.

Unfortunately, [[YouNeverAsked nobody informed Kellman]] that [[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids it had to make a children's show be appropriate for children]] until it was too late[[/note]].

The

* MediumBlending: Live-action photos of kangaroos (Photoshopped to look like supermodels) adorn Joey's bedroom. Later, the establishing shot of Alaska uses live-action stock footage of the Alaskan tundra.
