* LawyerFriendlyCameo: Although being a human in a costume instead of a puppet (just like the homonymous Edgar Wallace character he is a parody of), the Frog with the Mask looks like [[TheMuppets Kermit]], has ''the same voice actor'' as Kermit, and at one point even says: [[CatchPhrase "Applause!"]]

* ActorAllusion: Characters sometimes refer to the actors and other films based on books by Edgar Wallace. Often doubles with ShoutOut.



* FakeBrit: Almost everyone is a German actor/actress playing an Englishman or -woman (while speaking accent-free Standard German). A notable exception is Butler Hudson, played by the British Chris Howland. In one scene, Inspector Long comments Hudson's [[NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent British accent]], [[LampshadeHanging and the butler explains that he from Germany]].
