* ShoutOut: Among others, there's the fact that ''every'' close-up of Morticia has the same lighting as Bela Lugosi's take on Dracula, with a horizontal line of light across the eyes.

* FollowTheLeader: Though ''Radio/{{Dragnet}}'' did it four years earlier, and ''[[Film/TwilightZoneTheMovie The Twilight Zone]]'' four years before that, the success of this movie was what inspired a trend of [[TheFilmOfTheSeries film adaptations of TV series]] throughout TheNineties.

* GoodIsNotNice: The most flagrant example being the camp counselors from ''Values'', Gary and Becky. Not for the way they treat Wednesday and Pugsley (that is, until they force them to watch saccharine movies), but the way they heavily favor the rich, white, blonde kids over the minority campers, even casting the latter group as the "savage" Native Americans in Gary's play. Becky can't even pronounce two of their names, Consuela and Jamal.
** In introducing the play, Gary refers to the two factions as white meat and dark meat.

** The Thanksgiving play written by Gary, is filled with blatant racism, with Native Americans constantly being called [[InsistentTerminology savages]] and praising Pilgrim girl for have "skin as white as milk".
