* SelfDepreciation: The show's writers rip on the hardcore fans and the network, but they don't let themselves off any easier. The ''Itchy And Scratchy'' writers are {{Ink Suit Actor}}s of the real-life writers, and are depicted as lazy and inept. Marge even {{Lampshades}} that it's their fault the Poochie character sucks so much:

-->'''Marge''': It's not your fault, Homer. It's those lousy writers. They make me madder than a...yak in heat!

* GratuitousRap: How Poochie introduces himself.


Added DiffLines:

* WritersCannotDoMath: Invoked in-universe. In his rap Poochie says he's "Half [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joe_Camel Joe Camel]] and a third [[Series/HappyDays Fonzarelli]]." Which only adds up to 83.3 percent.

* ShoutOut: During the final hyping of Poochie's debut, Krusty cites the 1969 and 1971 moon landings as the only other TV events that left a lasting impact of American culture. As he makes this speech, photos of Neil Armstrong and Alan Shepard on the moon are displayed behind him.

Added DiffLines:

* HopeSpot: Homer writes a moving speech that gets a round of applause from everyone in Itchy and Scratchy studios, and appears to have saved Poochie from being [[ShooOutTheNewGuy killed off]]. The dog is still killed when the episode airs, and the audience is assured that he will never come back.
