Some of the Best Background Gags In 'Bojack Horseman'
With a new season of Netflix’s Bojack Horseman upon us, I’m here for two things: Deep existential crises with a shocking amount of emotional depth for a cartoon show about a talking horse, and some of the best background gags in any TV show ever. There are hundreds, maybe thousands of throwaway jokes, callbacks, and puns peppered into the frames of this show, and these are some of my personal favorites.
That time these moths were attracted to the spotlights:
That ’80s flashback featuring the “Cocaine Mirrors” store:
This rabbit (who might be the kid from “Goodnight Moon”) having a carrot for a bonsai tree:
These times when real world horses were replaced with anthropomorphic versions like Bojack:
When these actual crickets were in the audience at the comedy club:
When ‘scraps’ was a menu category at Elefante:
When a harsh truth about media was examined:
This brochure featuring the details on the Piece Of Shit Dad Package, and Piece Of Shit Package Would Be Too Good For Him Package:
This grocery store name joke that is probably only funny to people living in Los Angeles, but is so good y’all:
This slug using salt to commit suicide:
And finally, my personal favorite, this running gag that tells the continuing struggle of Mr. Peanutbutter’s attempts to get just one custom printing job to appear how he wants it:
