* ShaggyDogStory: "[[http://www.platypuscomix.net/onlyme/treasuretruck.html My Encounter With the Treasure Truck]]" recounts Peter's efforts to find an Amazon truck selling [[UsefulNotes/SuperNintendoEntertainmentSystem Super NES Classic]] console overstock, and purchase a console for himself. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, he ultimately learns that the Treasure Truck only gives the SNES Classic to people who pre-ordered it from Amazon's website, which sold out by the time Peter found the truck.

* {{Irony}}: In "[[http://www.platypuscomix.net/people/whisper16-1.html 100 More of the World's Greatest Whispers]]", Peter shared a Whisper from someone who lamented finding nothing good on television, and resorted to the Internet for entertainment. Peter tries to retort with a LongList of acclaimed TV shows. However, the list includes some shows from online platforms (such as ''Series/Daredevil2015'' and ''Series/JessicaJones2015''), at least one that ended years ago (''Series/BreakingBad''), and the program he tries to treat as the MostTriumphantExample (''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'') didn't air any new episodes that year.

* IDoNotLikeGreenEggsAndHam: Peter [[http://www.platypuscomix.net/darkvault/freespirit.html admitted]] that he expected to find ''Free Spirit'' as lame as most Creator/{{ABC}} sitcoms from TheEighties, but Winnie Goodwin [[JustForPun enchanted]] him so strongly, he plowed through all the episodes he received just to see more of her. After he finished, he even decided to write [[Webcomic/FreeSpirit2014 some comics]] about Winnie and her friends.

** Peter recalls in "[[http://www.platypuscomix.net/darkvault/letswatchablossomepisode.html Let's Watch a Blossom Episode]]" that he didn't watch ''Series/{{Blossom}}'' during its original run, out of fear that it would prove [[GirlShowGhetto too girly for him]]. However, the episode he reviews, "Who's in Charge Here?", proves ActuallyPrettyFunny.

* {{Understatement}}: Peter admits in "[[http://www.platypuscomix.net/hollywood/specialhouseguests.html The Platypus Comix Almanac of Special Houseguests]]" that he "implied once or twice" that he likes Winnie Goodwin from ''Series/FreeSpirit''. By the time this almanac came out, Peter had already inserted Winnie into one comic each from ''Webcomic/ElectricWonderland'' and ''Webcomic/{{Keiki}}'', wrote about ''Free Spirit'' '''twice''' for the Dark TV Vault (see below), and even kicked off [[Webcomic/FreeSpirit a series]] of ''Free Spirit'' FanWebComics.

What in this new batch of scans could potentially be resurrected THIS time?" He immediately dismisses [[http://www.platypuscomix.net/bored/tvguideads14-1.jpg the first advertised show]], ''Series/TuckersWitch''.
