* AffectionateParodyAffectionateParody: Westerns.



* AttractiveBentGender: Agarn, dressed as an "Indian maid", to coax the Loco Brothers out of their cave. Made funnier by the fact that Wrangler Jane, an actual woman, had failed in an earlier bid to do the same. Made famous to a new generation by being the clip shown on {{Freakazoid}}.
** It helped that Agarn learned the Indian Love Dance at a Hekawi party.

* CaptainErsatz: B. Wise from "Spy, Counter, Counterspy" is essentially Maxwell Smart from ''Series/GetSmart'' in an Old West setting. They even borrow a couple of his [[CatchPhrase Catch Phrases]]. Justified as it would be unlikely for Smart to have time-travel capabilities. [[spoiler:And also averted, as Wise proves to be a traitor.]]
* CastingGag:
** Trooper Duffy (Bob Steele) is an elderly cavalryman who claims to be the sole survivor of the Alamo, and regularly recounts his exploits there. Steele was previously a 1930s and '40s Western movie star, and had once been in a movie about meeting Davy Crockett at the Alamo.
** Sergeant O'Rourke is played by Forrest Tucker, who once portrayed a similar "O'Rourke" Cavalry Sergeant on ''Series/{{Gunsmoke}}''. In real life, he also served as a member of the United States Army Cavalry under George S. Patton.
