- Ear Worm: "They call him Flipper, Flipper, faster than lightning..." Somebody call a dentist.
- "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: One of the main trainers for the show now campaigns heavily against dolphin captivity after one of the dolphin stars died in his arms after the show ended.
- Retroactive Recognition: Denise Nickerson appeared in an episode, six years before her signature role as Violet Beauregarde.
- Tastes Like Diabetes: Some modern viewers are likely to have this kind of reaction, not towards the show itself, but rather towards the theme song.
YMMV / Flipper
