- Germans Love David Hasselhoff: And Hey Dad too.
- Harsher in Hindsight: Any scenes between Martin and Jenny after Sarah Monahan revealed that Robert Hughes had molested her on the set of the show.
- Overshadowed by Controversy: Any time this series gets mentioned post-2010, expect the topic to be about how the star of the series was a paedophile who molested the actress of the youngest child on the show, and/or the Mr Doodleburger parody dubs, which also make heavy reference to the first point. People born after the mid-80s tend to have a hard time remembering any details about the show itself.
YMMV / Hey Dad..!
