  • Just about every time Pablo has one of his panic attacks. And everybody's complete deadpan reactions to them.
  • Any time a cartoony sound effect is used:
    • "Match on Mt. Olympus": Austin pokes Pablo's beak, and a "boop!" noise is made.
    • "Who Goes There?": Tyrone falls off a chair. If that wasn't funny enough, he makes a squeak noise when he hits the ground, as if he fell on a chew toy.
  • Anytime one of the kids plays a villain, you can tell the voice actor is having a blast with their lines.


  • This exchange from "The Two Musketeers":
    Tasha: Is that why you don't like the Empress? Because she has a hot air balloon and you don't?!
    Musketeers Tyrone & Pablo: Yeah.
    • What makes this funnier the deadpan manner in which they say it.
  • The only part of "Scared of You" that might be deliberately scary is a falling staircase that everyone barely survives. Uniqua wants to relive it.
  • "Cave Party" features a running gag where someone invents something, and the other characters guess the name. Many of their guesses are average, but in one bit, Pablo's guess is bacon.
  • Much of "Best Clowns in Town". At one point, Pablo and Uniqua come up with the plan of firing themselves out of a cannon to catch up to Tyrone's train. Tyrone tries to slowly back away, and then they grab him and stuff him into the cannon.
  • Austin's laugh from "Flower Power".
  • From "The Yeti": There's a photo of Tyrone bunny-earing Tasha with the weirdest expression on his face, while Tasha is oblivious. And in the very next pic, he did it again, but this time he got caught.

  • In "It's Great To Be a Ghost", the crew hear a spooky voice say "It's Great To Be a Ghost", instead of the usual tummy rumble. Pablo then nervously invites his friends to his house, and they eagerly agree, bolting out of the haunted house.
  • In the episode "Secret Mission", when Tyrone is doing the limbo under a laser, Pablo and Uniqua sing a song that refers to him as a "secret agent limbo moose".
  • Uniqua and Pablo's arguments throughout "Horsing Around".
  • In "Ranch Hands from Outer Space", Tasha asks Pablo and Uniqua (who are playing said ranch hands) to build a tall fence. What do Pablo and Uniqua do? They use their alien powers to build a fence that only went up into the air, not around the field.
  • The entire Festival of Dirt scene from "Robin Hood the Clean", especially the long/short jump part.

  • These lines from "Pablor and the Acorns":
    Tasha: I love hiking in the woods! It’s so calm.
    Tyrone: It’s so quiet.
    Austin: It’s so peaceful.
    (Pablor’s spaceship crashes down to Earth, nearly crushing the three Acorns)
    Acorns: AAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!

How well does it match the trope?
