* There is exactly one Katie Ka-Boom sketch that doesn't end with the whole house being destroyed--one where Katie plans to go to prom. Her parents, fearful of her terrible temper, agree to everything she says she needs...until she starts talking about how she'll need an extended curfew. Her father refuses, and as always, Katie [[HulkingOut changes into a hideous monster]]--but her father refuses to back down (for the first time ever!). They eventually reach a peaceful compromise (Katie even says "please" while in monster form), and she transforms back into her human self. So why did this issue break the pattern? Because for the first time, it was Katie's ''safety'' that was in question (after-prom parties can be wild), and her father [[PapaWolf loves her too much to allow her to be harmed]]. He's pretty much resigned to having Katie overreact to silly issues, but if it's about preventing her from getting hurt, he can stand up to her (literally) explosive temper.

* Pretty much any time drums are required (for instance, in "Little Drummer Warners" and whenever there's a {{Rimshot}} gag), Wakko is the one who plays them. He ''is'' based on RingoStarr.

* In the Chicken Boo sketch "The Good, The Boo And The Ugly", Lee and Eli are clearly shown to have guns, so why don't they fight back against the outlaw that's terrorizing their town? Because they're not as quick on the draw as the outlaw or the "Man with No Personality" (Chicken Boo) are, even if they were skilled with their guns.

** Those contracts can also explain why there were so many cameos--might as well make use of the talent if they're getting paid anyway.

* The theme song for the "In the Garden of Mindy" skit from the Animaniacs Stew episode includes the lyrics "One's a small child / And the other's... The Brain". Seems like just a play on your expectations at first, but then you realise it neatly steps around answering the eternal debate on who is the genius and who is insane.

* This is technically one from the ComicBook, but when one of Hello Nurse's H.U.B.B.A. recruits, a dippy dame by the name of Aloha Nurse, splashes a silly novelty drink on an evil minion (which she apologetically states to be a "scorpion bowl"), she's chided for it. Upon receiving an IceCreamKoan from Agent Konichiwa Nurse, she then uses a powerful fire attack. A scorpion bowl contains gin, vodka, and rum. [[AmusingInjuries The combination of alcohol and open flame would make for a perfect attack.]]

** It's also a clever move on the part of the cast at large; the terms of the contract ensured each of the characters got paid for every episode, regardless of whether or not they appeared, accounting for the cast's rotating schedule. The characters took care of themselves, and the network executives got the short end of that one.

* When Skippy is traumatized by the death of Bumby's mom, Slappy tries to reassure him that cartoon characters have deadly things happen to them all the time and are none the worse for wear for it, while Slappy insists that it wasn't a cartoon, it was a ''movie''. This is kind of in line of Slappy having more MediumAwareness than him, but he's also making a distinction between animated features, which are more likely to have some serious themes, and animated shorts/tv shows, which are more likely to feature slapstick.
