* Another GeniusBonus: In every ''other'' version of the story, Frankenstein is repulsed by his creation and rejects it, causing said creation to act out and cause mayhem, becoming a poster child for CreatingLifeIsBad along with a {{Deconstruction}} of what creating a new life entailed. But in the AffectionateParody, that trope gets turned on its ear. Frankenstein comes to a HeelRealization and realizes that this "monster" is his child, and a child he has to care for. Because he does what ''no'' other version was willing to do and take responsibility, which [[{{Reconstruction}} Reconstructs]] the whole idea and gives the film a ''happy'' ending where both Frankenstein and his creation come out benefiting one another.

** If you were to read a script of the Monster's last scene with Elizabeth, all of his dialogue could be very accurately transcribed as "Grunt", and he ''still'' manages to come across as intelligent and sophisticated.

* FridgeBrilliance: Go watch ''Son of Frankenstein'', the movie that ''Film/YoungFrankenstein'' draws most of its material from. In that movie, the titular son of Frankenstein has a son of his own; a young boy who bears more than a passing resemblance to Gene Wilder, who plays the grandson of Victor Frankenstein. Coincidence, or perfect casting?
