** "BER-WYN?" whenever a city name, or a word that sounds similar is mentioned. Berwyn is a suburb of Chicago where they have an annual mushroom parade. Used as a gag similar to ''RowanAndMartinsLaughIn's'' "beautiful downtown Burbank." That and SoS used to regularly take credit for burning down the Berwyn Theater (again). Said theater was in sad disrepair in the early 80's and had multiple fires.

* IGotARock: Spoofed in a classic sketch where Sven went trick-or-treating but all he got was a paper cutout of a middle eastern country. That's right: [[IncrediblyLamePun He got Iraq.]]

Added DiffLines:

* MoodWhiplash: Unavoidable; the (usually) serious films are interrupted by Sven or Kerwyn delivering a punchline, often at the film's expense.

* BookEnds: ''Son of Svengoolie'', bizarrely, begins and ends with a TakeThat to failed sitcom ''Hello, Larry'': Jerry G. Bishop, introducing the first episode, sarcastically quips that "many fondly remember Svengoolie providing the same classic entertainment as such time-honored shows as ''Hello, Larry''"; and the "Cancelled" song in the finale claims the show's been cancelled "like [=McLean=] Stevenson".

* [[PunBasedTitle Pun Based Name]]: Named for Svengali from ''Trilby'' (and the subsequent reuse of the name as "a person who with evil intent manipulates another into doing what is desired") along with [[{{Ghouls}} Ghoul]], a common horror trope in its own right.
