* PaperThinDisguise: Intentionally invoked, but also subverted. Sideshow Bob's Krusty disguise looks very uncanny, making it look as though the only thing the clown is doing to hide his identity is with a flimsy mask.

** The "whodunit" plot is rather simple and easy to solve, compared to the more complex detective plots of later episodes, such as the [[Recap/TheSimpsonsWhoShotMrBurns Who Shot Mr. Burns]] two-parter.

** Krusty is a happy, upbeat clown who means well for all children and is even grateful to Bart after he saved him. This is a sharp contrast with his later more careless persona (though the fact that Krusty has been entertaining kids for years and has to deal with idiot executives, sycophantic fans, the excesses of fame, and competition from other shows may have made him bitter and cynical).

*** Also in later episodes, Krusty doesn't remember who Bart or Lisa is, despite meeting him and helped him on several occasions. And he usually doesn't care.

* WhatAnIdiot: InUniverse and pointed out by Lisa and Bart. In Sideshow Bob's eagerness to frame Krusty and send him to jail forever, he forgets a number of key facts that he knew about his co-star: He knew Krusty is illiterate, yet he is seen (via the security camera) reading a magazine at the counter, waiting for the store to clear out, and Bob (as Krusty) stood near a microwave oven, which Krusty can't do because he has an artificial pacemaker implanted in his heart (which was also captured via security camera). Naturally, when Bart points this out, Bob tries to bluff an explanation that Krusty was never very smart and liked to look at the pictures, but it sets up Bob's downfall.
