15 Bojack Horseman Easter Eggs We Totally Missed On The First Watch

A wise horseman once said: “He’s so stupid, he doesn’t realize how miserable he should be. I envy that.”

That uh, doesn't really have anything to do with this list. That quote just really resonates with us.

Aside from its killer one-liners, one of Bojack Horseman's many strengths is its attention to detail. A lot of these Easter Eggs are pun-based background details, like the literal platter of poop in a restaurant display labeled “cow pie,” or stores called “Pest Elm,” “Secret Hindquarters,” and “Gnu Bottle Coffee.”

Others are nods to the zeitgeist of our world, like Mr. Peanutbutter's campaign slogan of “Yes We Might!”, and movie posters for Wonder Worm and Crazy Ex-Squirrel Friend.

News tickers are also a major source of fanservice jokes, like “Black Panther Slays At Box Office; Film Also a Success.”

Upon closer inspection, maybe they're all animal puns. Who cares, they've earned 'em. Read on for more great puns from the saddest horseman in comedy:
