* PoweredByAForsakenChild: For the Victorian ''DragonsDen'' segment, all of the new labour saving inventions being presented consist of a street child. Something of a running theme in the 'Vile Victorians' segments generally; see also the "Work, Terrible Work!" song, an advertisement for New! Victorian Child (ie. chimney sweeps) and a sketch in which among a kid's fifth birthday presents is a job in the factory alongside his dad -- who then implies that they thus won't have to worry about a ''sixth'' birthday present.

* YouLookFamiliar: In the rebooted series, Simon Farnaby reprises his role as King George III. The final sketch of the episode sees George being interviewed by Death ... who is also played by Simon Farnaby. In fact, the trope name is spoken verbatim.

* EarTrumpet: Type 2. At one point during the Prom special, famously deaf LudwigVanBeethoven is provided a literal trumpet by Creator/WolfgangAmadeusMozart, in order to more comfortably argue over which of them was the Greatest Composer Who Ever Lived.
