* AsHimself: In ''Mathnet'', Officers Sam and Steve, played by Sam Salazar and Steve Fellman. Also overlaps with CastTheExpert, as both men were actual police officers working for the LAPD at the time, as well as FakeGuestStar, as despite appearing in every Los Angeles segment, always showing up at the end to apprehend each suspect, they were always listed in the guest cast.

* ClearMyName: George Frankly in "The Trial of George Frankly" when he's accused of robbing a bank, and Pat Tuesday, when she's accused of stealing jewelry.
* ClearTheirName: Kate Monday's old college friend, Eve Adams, when she's accused of kidnapping.



* DaChief: In the L.A. era of ''Mathnet'', Chief Thad Green. In the New York era, Captain Joe Greco.



* InternalAffairs: Averted in the ''Mathnet'' segments. In the respective ClearMyName story arcs, the Mathnetters meet directly with DaChief.
* JurisdictionFriction: Averted in the ''Mathnet'' segments. Whenever the Mathnetters happen to meet up with an outside organization, said organization is very willing, and often excited, to be working together with ''Mathnet''



** When Kate Monday left, Pat Tuesday replaced her. She had the same deadpan delivery style as Kate, as well as a good deal more common sense than George Frankly. Likewise, when Kate and George moved to New York, Captain Joe Greco replaced Chief Thad Green as DaChief. Averted, however, with Benny Pill replacing Debbie Williams in the move to New York, as their respective jobs within the Mathnet organization were drastically different. While Debbie was a technical analyst and thus she mostly stayed at the station, Benny Pill was a taxi driver/undercover cop and thus he would often accompany Kate/Pat and George out in the field.

Educational program, from the creators of ''Series/SesameStreet'', which originally ran on Creator/{{PBS}} from 1987 to 1992. ''Square One Television'' 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]].

** He does it ''again'' on a later true-or-false question. [[TooDumbToLive Even after Mr. Glitch warns him multiple times]]. Getting preachy about math may very well be Mathman's hubris.

* 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.
