* DoubleVision: The "Kilimanjaro Expedition" sketch has Sir George Head [[KnightFever OBE]] who suffered from double vision and keeps seeing two people in place of one, or four in the case of twins, including two of himself. At the end of the sketch, it turns out there are two George Heads, shown with one George Head on a ChromaKey screen superimposed next to the other one.

** Episode 29 opened with the opening credits, music and all, to ''The Money Programme'' ([[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin a finance and business programme]] [[LongRunners that has been airing since 1966]]). Only when the presenter was revealed to be a [[MoneyFetish comically money-mad]] Eric Idle who burst into song was the veil lifted.

*FunnyBackgroundEvent: In the ''Crunchy Frog'' sketch, whilst Inspector Praline goes through the contents of the Whizzo Quality Assortment and Mr Milton tries to explain their use of such strange ingredients, poor Constable Parrot spends the whole sketch looking nauseated and rushing out of the room to[[VomitDiscretionShot throw up]]. And neither of them seem to notice.
