For the original series and franchise:

For the 2012 Gag Dub:

  • Alternate Character Interpretation: In a meta sense. Father Time is most often depicted as a stereotypical 'wise old man' with a long beard. Here he is a loud and obnoxious, but kind-hearted, blue-skinned man who casts spells with a club. He still has a beard, though.

  • Americans Hate Tingle: Many Koreans hate Feiss's Gag Dub of the series and it was critically panned by a lot of critics for its Cut-and-Paste Translation. Aurora Wold went further by disowning the dub in favor of their own version. Not helped any further when they hearted a comment on their upload of the Yoo Hoo To The Rescue theme that states that the Gag Dub sucks and how they're glad that Aurora gained the rights back.note 
  • Base-Breaking Character:
    • Either Father Time gives some much-needed character to what was a dull, generic Tastes Like Diabetes show, or he's an annoying lout who hogs too much of the screentime.
    • Chewoo is either an hilarious addition to the crew with some good jokes, or unneeded and unneccessarily annoying at times due to her Genki Girl attitude.

  • Broken Base: Many fans of the original claim the adaptation is a hideous defilement of the Yoohoo & Friends franchise, but others call it a necessary revamping of what was a bland generic cutesy cartoon; there's also a few who think each version is good in its own way. Officially, the critics agreed with the former camp.
  • Ear Worm: The theme song. "So around the world they go, otherwise we'd have no show..."
  • Snark Bait: Some fans of the original series like to treat the "American version" as this.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Character: Ms. Bushu. As the Pookees are hilarious, they are also just as incompetent and later start to loose sight of their original goal. Bushu on the other hand could've raised some stakes for the series, but they only used her once.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: More like they were prevented from the opportunity to use a good plot, as season 2 of the original series had a lot of interesting ideas and jokes that could've been made in the Gag Dub - had it not gotten cancelled and stopped by Aurora World so soon.
  • What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?: The later episodes get so ridiculous and silly. The so-called "product" the YooHoos have to fix, barely having any relevance in the episode. For example:
    • The rhino episode has Nasty Corp kidnapping a rhino mother in order to market their Rhinoplasty, which apparently involves surgically implanting a rhino horn onto a person's face. The rest of the episode has the Yoo Hoos getting the babysitting the baby rhino so he can tell them where his mother is.
    • In "Weeping Willow", an anthropomorphic tree that cries is used to make tissues, and its tears end up creating a flood that serves as the premise of the episode—while the tree itself doesn't appear until the final minute of the show.
    • Just as well, the actual Gag Dub's premise itself is incredibly odd and so devoid from the show it was based on that it's actually memorable and hilarious due to this.
