* SimilarItemConfusion: One brief sketch showed two men who were working at a restaurant discussing income and profit. One of the bills they were discussing involved window repair due to a customer's demonstration of how hard the Swedish Meatballs were, to which the cook replied "How was I supposed to know that flour and plaster weren't the same thing? I mean they're both all powdery and white...!"

* SwappedRoles: When Mathman is unable to play his mission (for example: Mathman is busy walking his dog), Mr. Glitch would substitute Mathman's mission. In one episode where he needed to make an answer that was less than seven, he ended up being eaten by Mathman when he picked a zero.

* ControllableHelplessness: At the end of most ''Mathman'' segments, after getting a wrong answer Mathman attempts to escape from Mr. Glitch, but there seems to be no way for him to actually get away, so his death is inevitable.

Educational program, from the creators of ''Series/SesameStreet'', which originally ran on Creator/{{PBS}} from 1987 to 1992. ''Square One'' was a half-hour sketch show which featured music videos, game shows, animations and parodies of other popular television programs designed to teach UsefulNotes/{{mathematics}} to children. Ironically, ''Square One Television'' was often criticized for being too entertaining. Some people just couldn't believe that it was really possible for something that children actually enjoyed watching to be educational. It is also notable for the large amounts of ParentalBonus (often coming in the form of [[ShoutOut shout outs]] to the UsefulNotes/UniversityOfMichigan, where many of the creators matriculated). A number of shorts were the earliest projects for [[WesternAnimation/{{Doug}} Jumbo Pictures]].

* TemptingFate[=/=]PrideBeforeAFall: Does Mathman say "I'm smart!" before he's done? Then you can expect him to screw up within the next couple decisions.

* {{Ratings}}: Primarily the subject in an episode of ''Mathnet'' called "The Case of the Deceptive Data". Beloved children's programming host Mike Pliers ([=McLean=] Stevenson) lost his show due to poor ratings, which were more in favor of ''The Vicious Vinnie Vermin Show''. But it was later revealed that [[spoiler: the ratings were all a lie, that the people who allegedly watched Vinnie Vermin (Dick Sargent) were actually fans of Mike Pliers. To make matters worse, the ratings were tampered with by none other than Vinnie Vermin himself, who was actually a representative for the Hoover Ratings System named Wellworth Watching.]]

Added DiffLines:

* TalkingIsAFreeAction: Averted when Mathman discusses using math when one would get a job. He talks too long explaining his reasoning for answering true and false questions which allows The Glitch to devour him.
