Over the weekend, Netflix released the third season of its acclaimed animated hit BoJack Horseman, chronicling the life of its title character, the former sitcom star, and perpetual alcoholic horse, BoJack Horseman. In our season three review, we noted that while the show definitely takes its story into some pretty dark places, so much of its trademark (and often overlooked) humor can be found in the margins, namely in the signs and characters littered throughout the background. Here’s a look at some of the show’s funniest signs we caught in season three.
Some mild spoilers for Bojack Horseman’s third season contained below.
Starting off very subtly, BoJack meets Jill Pill (Mara Wilson) at the prestigious Manhattan Diner, the kind of place that offers an “Eggs Upper Easty” breakfast special. Inside the restaurant’s lobby is a typical coffeehouse billboard, complete with a ‘Lost Dog’ sign. Given that we’re in the world of BoJack Horseman, there’s also one looking for someone’s ‘Lost Human.’ It also makes it a point to show that Hamilton is popular pretty much everywhere you go.
‘David Hasselhoff’s Floor Burgers’
When we get to the episode that’s set entirely in the year 2007, there’s a scene early on that’s just packed full of references to that crazy time nine years ago. The best one out of all of them, though, is David Hasselhoff’s Floor Burgers, where Todd (Aaron Paul) and Emily (Abbi Jacobson) are having a bite to eat. The reference, complete with an illustration of The Hoff himself, refers to a particularly low point in his career, which also happened back in 2007.
