* JerkassHasAPoint: Bart may be a jerk but when it comes to the adults and their rules against kids, he was right to call them out on that, even Nelson, a JerkAss himself, agrees to help Bart.
* KarmaHoudini: Although everyone in town who is not elderly end up being smacked with a curfew (which is more of a blanket punishment), Homer and his idiotic gang are never directly punished or even called out on their drunken behavior which set all the episode's events in motion.
* LaserGuidedKarma: The adults made an unfair curfew for children but got the same fate in the end by the seniors. Most of the adults lyrics do happen to them in future episodes. Homer sang about how his children were born by accident because Marge forgot her pill (His own father calls him an accident which completely destroyed his relationship with him). Krusty sung negatively about the kids before trying to reassure them to stay in the fan club (Krusty's relationship with his father is far from good due to him choosing to be clown instead of following jewish tradition).

* InstantlyProvenWrong: When Marge tries to assure Bart and Lisa that nothing really great happens after dark, Homer comes in cheering that there's a carnival in the street.

* TemptingFate: During the first time the kids started exposing adults' secrets, they started with Homer. When Homer expressed relief that at least they'd already done him, they announced there'd be more about him. Later on, people start asking what the senior citizens will do if their demands aren't met. The next scene features a curfew for people under 60.

* TookALevelInJerkass: The adults reveled in the curfew more than any adult ever should. Even Marge who is one of the nicer Simpsons made a few jokes. When the kids get even, [[NeverMyFault the adults act as if they did nothing wrong and that the kids are to blame.]] Even the song is needlessly cruel with Homer singing that Bart and Lisa were accidents because Marge forgot her pill ([[WhatTheHellHero Marge doesn't even shout at him or correct him she just murmurs and gives a guilty or embarrassed smile to the other adults which is out of character as she will tear the world to shreds if her children are harmed in some way either emotionally or physically)]] while Moe sang about how the all kids should be "drowned like cats".

** Chief Wiggum in particular took a nastier edge beginning in this episode, with him [[ImplacableMan going above and beyond what was necessary to punish the children of Springfield]] and to make sure [[ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem his rules were enforced by all means (at the expense of more pressing crimes in the city.)]] Worse still, he went from being a dim-witted, corrupt but still likable rival of Mayor Quimby to a rogue, irritating jackass who made certain citizens' lives crap just because he could, evidence by his unnecessarily gloating how stupid children are and how [[FamilyUnfriendlyAesop "Adults always win!"]][[note]]Which could also be viewed as an unintentional TakeThat to the many young viewers the show had/have, even if the show [[AnimationAgeGhetto isn't necessarily meant for children.]][[/note]]

** A registered nurse is on hand for those who die of shock from seeing "The Bloodening". This mirrors ''Film/TheScreamingSkull'', which includes free burial services for anyone who dies of shock from watching the movie.
