  • Eat the Camera: the camera zooming into Tim's mouth.
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin: Assumed that Boss Baby is back to his usual personality.

  • Grossout Show: It's a show dealing with babies, so expect a few bouts of Toilet Humor and some bits about puking.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Turtleneck and Fredrick tried to spray the babies of the city with a stinky serum, so elderly people would be a beloved species. They stole the Stinkless Serum and tried to make themselves stinkless. But Baby Corp swaped it with their own stinky serum, so they made themselves unforgivably stinky with then spread across the town; leading to the two getting arrested as a result.
  • Logo Joke: A standard DreamWorks logo appears, but is quickly shoved to the side by Boss Baby in a crescent shaped business chair.
    Boss Baby: Hold all my calls.
  • Mama Bear: Or rather Aunt Bear. Tim's aunt Gigi helped defend Boss Baby when Fredrick tried to make babies get bad publicity.
  • Negative Continuity: At the end of the film, Boss Baby leaves his job at Baby Corp to live with the Templeton Family as a normal baby under his new full name Theodore Lindsay Templeton. Yet in the series, he's still working at Baby Corp, still called Boss Baby and neither his brother Tim nor the parents call him Theodore or Ted for short, not once.

  • Noodle Incident: Tim's parents reminisce about their honeymoon, which somehow involved "that one palm tree in the motel room", which they giggle about.
  • Parental Bonus: A few in the first episode:
    • When Scooter refuses to cooperate, Boss Baby complains that this is like trying to negotiate with North Korea.
    • When the babies reveal they've recalled Scooter, Boss Baby states that they'll leave him with some mega-family with a bunch of children that they'll never notice a new baby. Staci then comments that their best chances are in Utah. Utah is well-known for its large Mormon population, which supports large families and polygamy.
  • Shout-Out:
    • In the third episode, Boss Baby mimics The Godfather, "It's just business.", Italian accent and all.
  • Take That!: In the second episode, while explaining what happened when two babies revealed their capacity for business to their mother and father, the parents went crazy and turned into drooling dolts. The company managed to relocate them into government jobs that require little thinking... the dad becoming a Senator of Pennsylvania.
  • Truth in Television: Boss Baby says that a baby can become heavier by going limp. In real life, going limp when people try to carry/lift you does make it harder for them to do so because you're not using your body weight to help lift yourself.
  • Vocal Dissonance: Staci sounds much like a teenager as opposed to a kid.
  • Wham Line: Turtleneck revealing her true colors.
Turtleneck Superstar CEO Baby: I'm not working for old people, I am old people.
