* {{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.

* 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/FreeSpirit some comics]] about Winnie and her friends.

** In [[http://www.platypuscomix.net/bored/tvguideads14.html Fall 1982]], after Peter explains that [[Series/FreeSpirit a show]] he discovered in ''TV Guide'' inspired him to create [[WebComic/FreeSpirit a comic series based on it]], he asked, "Could it happen again? 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''. This wasn't brought up again until a scan advertising the ''Series/LaverneAndShirley'' episode "[[http://www.platypuscomix.net/bored/tvguideads14-15.jpg The Mummy's Bride]]" appears.

* TheUnfavorite: Peter finds it surprising that the ''Simpsons'' episode "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS2E18BrushWithGreatness Brush with Greatness]]" has [[http://www.platypuscomix.net/bored/tvguidesimpsons18.html no ad]] hyping up the guest appearance of one of Music/TheBeatles, until he figures they decided Music/RingoStarr didn't seem worth the trouble.

* NominalImportance: In [[http://www.platypuscomix.net/darkvault/otherworld.html his coverage]] of ''Series/{Otherworld}}'', Smith, the youngest of the Sterling family, matters so little to the show that Peter doesn't even bother bringing up his name, instead urging the readers to "forget about him because he won't be mentioned again".

* TheArtifact: "[[http://www.platypuscomix.net/kidzone/comingtodvdnever.html Why you may never see some of your favorite childhood shows on DVD]]", a list of shows whose fans need to KeepCirculatingTheTapes, has some comments regarding Creator/FoxKids shows that stayed up for several years after some corporate exchanges, between Creator/{{Disney}}[[note]]who, according to the page, acquired a significant portion of Fox Kids' library while purchasing the [[Creator/ABCFamily Fox Family Channel]][[/note]] and such studios as Creator/ShoutFactory and Creator/MillCreekEntertainment, rendered them obsolete. For instance, the article ends with the lament, "It's a real tragedy moments like 'Fish Don't Stink' can't be legally bought," followed by a link to the ''WesternAnimation/BobbysWorld'' [[http://www.platypuscomix.net/downloads/fishdontstink.html clip]]. Amazon started selling official ''Bobby's World'' DVD boxsets in 2012, but this ending remained.

* TimeMarchesOn: "[[http://www.platypuscomix.net/kidzone/comingtodvdnever.html Why you may never see some of your favorite childhood shows on DVD]]" originally included ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'' among the shows whose fans needed to KeepCirculatingTheTapes. After Time Life went and released ''all'' the episodes on DVD, Nicktoons and ''WesternAnimation/ReBoot'' took its spot on the list. Later, Shout! Factory managed to release [=DVDs=] of ''those'', so they got removed from Peter's article, later replaced by ''WesternAnimation/KaBlam''. Ironically, the Creator/FoxKids section hasn't received an update since 2010.
