* ImposterForgotOneDetail: Actually, two details, which are 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.

* WellIntentionedExtremist[=/=]ThinkOfTheChildren: Sideshow Bob. He genuinely cares about the education and future of the children watching the show and hates the kind of [[LowestCommonDenominator lowbrow humor]] Krusty is corrupting them with. After framing Krusty, he introduces high culture and good morals (not exactly entertaining for kids, but still a positive influence) and when he's arrested, he screams "Treat children as equals! They're smarter than you think!" Later episodes would phase this out in favor of his straightforwardly villainous schemes and obsession with getting revenge on Bart.

* AllPartOfTheShow: When Krusty has a heart attack, the kids think his wild contortions and screaming in extreme pain are all part of a comedy act. Even Kent Brockmann chuckles as he whimsically remembers the incident.



* ConvictionByContradiction: Bart and Lisa's investigation basically comes down to this. First Lisa realises that Krusty wouldn't have used the Kwik-E-Mart microwave because he has a pacemaker, then that he couldn't have been reading the Springfield Review of Books at the magazine rack because he can't read. When Bart brings these points up on Sideshow Bob's show, Bob argued that Krusty wasn't one to follow medical warnings, and didn't need to be able to read to enjoy the Springfield Review of Books, thanks to the cartoons. Finally, in a EurekaMoment, Bart remembers that Homer stepped on the ends of fake Krusty's long shoes, causing him to exclaim in pain. Although Krusty usually wears oversized shoes, his feet don't fill them, so he wouldn't have felt a thing; Sideshow Bob, however, has feet long enough to fill the shoes.



* MagicalSecurityCam: Averted by director Brad Bird, who took care to stage all the actions of the robbery so they could be captured from one angle, at a spot where a security camera would realistically be.

* VillainousBreakdown: Bob has a very subtle one when he gets taken to jail. He starts out more annoyed rather than angry during his "Meddling Kids Remark." Then shouts out to everyone to [[NotNowKiddo treat kids as equals]] in a more operatic tone, before his voice finally breaks into panic knowing that his plan crumbled.
