12 Small Details You Only Notice Rewatching Bojack Horseman

It’s a show overflowing with background details... have you caught them all?


BoJack Horseman is due to come to an end in January, in what will no doubt be one of the darkest and most heartbreaking season finales ever. It’s the ideal time then to gear up for a complete series rewatch, and there’s plenty of background details to keep you entertained if you do.

BoJack is such a vibrant show, one teeming with extra flourishes of world building and humour. Perfectly mixing clever satire, dark comedy and outright goofiness, it’s almost overloaded with jokes at times. Not that that’s a bad thing; it just means there’s no way you’d catch all of these on the first watch.

There’s two main reasons for this. Firstly, the gags might be so small and in the background that you’d miss them when watching for the plot. Other gags are foreshadowed and it’s not until a rewatch that you realise it had been in motion the entire time.

These aren’t all jokes, necessarily, with some acting more as funny callbacks in context. Well known running gags like Princess Carolyn’s tongue twisters or ‘Erica!’ don’t count either, as most people catch them the first time around anyway.
