Of course, despite being an Affectionate Parody of 80's and 90's family sitcoms, it wouldn't be Tim and Eric without their usual absurdity. The series airs on Adult Swim, and is Tim and Eric's fifth series for the network (after Tom Goes to the Mayor, Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!, Check It Out! with Dr. Steve Brule, and Tim & Eric's Bedtime Stories.).
Tropes associated with Beef House include:
- Affectionate Parody: of 80's-90's family sitcoms, with the Tim and Eric twist.
- Gorn: Played for Laughs. One episode has Eric break his leg after falling asleep while driving a bus. Later on when Tim tries to snap it back together, Eric's leg bone pops out in gory fashion.
- Laugh Track: Used to capture the feel of a sitcom.
