One of the common features of every season of the show seemed to be kicking the slime victims when they are down. Saying things like "you idiot!" to them as they stand there all green and gooey, but it seems some of the later seasons had a lot of insults where the girls made fun of the boys for being stupid. I just saw a clip in an episode where the kids were farming and one of the boys kids watered. Vanessa then calls him a "stupid boy" -and there is another episode-I forget which-where a girl says something like "without any boys in the show you won't have anyone stupid enough to say I don't know and get slimed"-of course then the girl gets slimed. I don't remember which girl that is or why there wasn't going to be any boys on the show. Was this mocking of the boys more prominent in the later season? I don't remember it being so gender based in the early days-particularly because girls got slimed a lot more than boys back then.
