Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

This page is of a generally positive nature, and a Fridge Brilliance does not have to be Word Of God. In fact, it usually isn't, and the viewer might be putting more thought into it than the creator ever did. This is not a place for personal commentary on another's remark or arguing without adding a Fridge Brilliance comment of your own.

Everything Else

  • In the creepy stop-motion TV series "What It's Like Being Alone", the Brick Joke of episode 9 was that no one but Sammy questioned how Trevor, a random one appearance character got adopted. Then it hits me that as of ep 8, he discovered the ability to see the fourth wall! - Archduke Cthulhu
  • In The Looney Tunes Show, Daffy has to babysit a baby duck. He goes through the fridge to find something for the baby to drink, finds some milk, and scoffs, "What am I, crazy? Babies don't like milk." He then proceeds to try to feed the baby clam juice. This seems like just Daffy being Daffy, but then again, both he and the baby are ducks. Clam juice is slightly closer to something that a baby duck might eat.
    • Daffy's costume montage in the episode "Reunion" is slightly justified in retrospect. Of course they had all those costumes lying around--Bugs held all those jobs!
  • American Dragon: Jake Long: For the #1 threat the Magical Community, the Dark Dragon didn't really seem as threatening as he was made about to be since he was defeated thwarted fairly easily in all of his appearances. In the finale episode, Rose is even able to hold her own against him after he battles all the dragons. But it also occurred to me that he had the unique distinction of being the only dragon ever to go bad. The sheer danger of one of the most powerful magical creatures (and a protector creature) becoming evil and the psychological damage may have likely contributed to his perceived threat.
  • The series Clone High in general. The way all the characters are either flanderized or direct opposites of their orignal genetic copies could be interpreted as just because they're based on someone great, doesn't mean that they have the ability to measure up to them. They're the ones in control of their destinies, they shape who they are.
  • In Ralph Wolf and Sam Sheepdog, the two respective characters' jobs seem very lopsided, despite both of them being quite content and calm in the down time: Ralph is always active and always fails, while Sam is passive or reactive and always succeeds. So why isn't Ralph very stressed out and maybe having anger management issues? Well, in Ready, Woolen and Able we see the two arriving to work in cars, and while Sam drives a rickety jalopy, Ralph arrives in a single-seater red racecar, possibly a Ferrari. Moreover, he has a lot of gadgets at his disposal even when off duty (such as in A Sheep in the Deep). So while Sam has a less demanding job, Ralph is content to keep trying, failing and enduring Slapstick because he is presumably paid a lot better. None of this is meant to account for Sam's Teleport Spam and clone spam (or time travel?) while on the job.
