* BigScrewedUpFamily: The Bassetts, all of whom—save for Wooton, his cousin Wilma, and their grandfather—are self-serving, avaricious, and arrogant. They are implied to be the reason why Wooton is the way he is; the repressive background in which he grew up prevented him from being a kid, so he gets in touch with his inner child as an adult.

* ChildrenVoicingChildren: Usually the child characters on ''Adventures in Odyssey'' are voiced by kids (usually with the result being many of the characters getting either several voice actors or dropped altogether), with the most glaring exceptions being Emily Jones and Olivia Parker[[note]]both introduced when the series returned from hiatus in 2010[[/note]]

*** It's also not really a proper insanity plea; for one thing, there should have been reference to an actual psychiatrist on the witness stand. Simply showing the jury evidence indicating Novacom's culpability for circumstances leading up to the hypothetical situation that Tom really did blow up the tower won't be enough for an actual insanity defense. The proper defense here would be "extreme emotional disturbance".

** Leading off from that (though this is more of a hole in the dialogue itself), the defense attorney's case rests on exposing all of Novacom's misdeeds to the public to give Tom a motivation for the destruction of the tower under the InsanityPlea, then tells Tom that "the jury will never convict you". But the jury ''would'' be convicting him; that's the whole point of pleading guilty under insanity. They just might not give him a particularly harsh sentence under the circumstances.

* ArtisticLicenseLaw: Justified in the cases tried in Whit's End court (i.e. "The Scales of Justice" and "Broken Window"), but played straight in Tom Riley's trial in which he is accused of blowing up the Novacom broadcasting tower in "Expect the Worst" and "Exactly As Planned":
** To begin with, the trial is implied to take place relatively shortly after the actual incident, because Cal is still in the hospital from relatively minor injuries when it's over; even in small town court systems (and a town that has its own airport really isn't that small when you think about it), it can take months to prepare a trial. Attorneys have to interview witnesses and prepare statements, and there are simply other cases on the docket that have to be taken care of.
** The prosecuting attorney repeatedly uses the phrase "beyond a shadow of a doubt". However, that is not the standard of proof, because nothing can really be proven beyond a ''shadow'' of a doubt (there's always going to be somebody who finds a hole or makes some crackpot theory). The standard instead is "beyond a ''reasonable'' doubt".

* OneSteveLimit: Averted; Jack Davis is a prominent child character from the first era of kids, while Jack Allen is a close friend of Whit's and became integrated into the show's adult supporting cast.
** There are two child characters named Erica—one is Erica Clark, an outgoing if somewhat ditzy girl; the other is Erica Colburn, a former friend of Aubrey Shepard's who is directly responsible for Novacom [[spoiler:obtaining the technology of the Imagination Station.]]

* CanonImmigrant: The main characters didn't have fixed character designs initially, but the ones that the AnimatedAdaptation gave the characters were eventually adopted as their official character designs (with a few slight alterations) for years until they were changed slightly starting with the 51st album "Take It From The Top".

* RetCanon: The main characters didn't have fixed character designs initially, but the ones that the AnimatedAdaptation gave the characters were eventually adopted as their official character designs (with a few slight alterations) for years until they were changed slightly starting with the 51st album "Take It From The Top". If you look closely, you can see that the new designs still have some influence from their old designs at their official post-album 51 artwork. (Connie is still a red-head and wears a green shirt and Whit's face and hair is largely unchanged, for example.)
