YMMV / The Angry Beavers

Go To

  • Accidental Innuendo: Well, the stars are beavers. And that term gets repeated often. Cue lots of immature teenage giggling.
  • Badass Adorable: Norbert and Daggett have their moments, the latter especially in "Enter the Daggett".
  • Bizarro Episode: The show is already pretty...out there, but the tip of the iceberg would likely be "Brothers...To The End?", which has the premise of the universe suddenly coming to an end right at the turn of the millennium, and Norbert and Daggett are instructed to recreate it all over again. Words cannot describe the insanity that follows. In the end, it turns out the incident was just a mass hallucination of many of the main characters brought on by bad martinis...or was it? It's not especially made clear.

  • Broken Base: While the two main characters constantly ad libbing over one another is one of the show's biggest draws, some feel that it can make stories difficult to follow as a result.
  • Cargo Ship: Dag and "Angel Eyes" (a fishing lure).
  • Crazy Awesome: El Grapadora, Oxnard Montalvo (at least in his films). Hell, even Muscular Beaver has his moments.
  • Ear Worm:
    • The theme song, which is as much "90s Nicktoon" as it is "theme to The Dating Game".
    • The ending theme as well.
    • Beaver fever!
    • Kid Friendly - don't you mess around with him!
    • I Think I Like You
    • "Go, go, go, back to Ca-na-da!"
    • I am no stoopy poopy beaver!
    • "The roller coaster was long, my stomach not strong, when you sat beside me..."
    • You call me names, and I call you more names back!
    • I am a germ-breeding tree-chomping raaaaaat.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • The Big Round Sticky Fish Thingy acts a whole lot like a Katamari...

    • In "Spooky Spoots", Norb & Dag are thinking with portals.
    • In "Enter the Daggett", Dag calls himself the "silent wind of doom". His voice actor is Richard Horvitz.
    • In Season 4's "Finger Licking Goofs" (from the year 2000), there's a joke about nature host Bill Licking being "America's #1 Bear Hater", and he rants about how bears are terrible creatures that shouldn't be trusted. Doesn't this sound a bit like Stephen Colbert, and his irrational hatred and fear of bears?
    • In "Endangered Species", Dag gets mistaken for a horned beaver. The Ice Age series would feature horned beavers.
    • In "Same Time Last Week", the portion where Daggett is struggling in vain to keep from annoying Norbert is punctuated with Norbert shrieking, "This... isn't... really... happeniiing!"
  • Moe: Daggett and Norbert themselves are awfully cute critters.
  • Suspiciously Similar Song:
    • The show's soundtrack is practically a "Best of". One example is an instrumental that sounds like the beginning of Andy Williams' song, "Can't Get Used to Losing You".
    • Chelsea and Stacy's theme sounds a lot like the beginning of "Say You'll be There" [1]
    • In "You Promised!" during the brothers' race at the end, the music is almost exactly "I'm a Believer".
  • Uncanny Valley:
    • Some of the human designs in the show can range from pretty goofy to downright frightening. For a comparison as to how wildly these models can vary, take a look at this scene from "Beach Beavers A Go-Go", where an example of a character that can easily pass as Fanservice is quickly followed by the appearance of a freaky woman that looks more bird than human.
    • Stump himself can fall into this, due to the unnerving expression permanently carved into its face and the fact that everybody treats it as if it were alive and sentient.
    • There's also Norb and Dag's cousin, which turns out to be a photo of a real-life beaver superimposed onto the animation.
  • Ugly Cute: Dag is a bit cute despite looking like more of a rat than a beaver.
  • The Woobie: Dag has his woobie-ish moments because of how much he gets abused by Norb and everyone else.
