* 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".

* HurricaneOfPuns: Some segments will have Sven rattle of a bunch of them at once.

* InstrumentalThemeTune: ''Screaming Yellow Theatre's'' "Rumble", as well as Rich Koz's "Son's Theme".



* [[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.

* RunningGag[=/=]PhraseCatcher: "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.

* SpecialEffectsEvolution: Tombstone's is superimposed onto the screen much more gracefully today than he was in the old days, appearing much more solid and his mouth lipsynchs almost fluidly.

* UnPerson: In Sven's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SfknZhB7ufQ 150th Episode music video]] "Stop Calling Him the Son" [[note]]based on "Walking on the Sun" by Music/{{Smashmouth}}[[/note]] Sven mentions giving thanks to "that broad on the bench," referring to Series/JudgeJudy which also aired on WCIU at the time. In a later edition of the video, after Judy had moved to the local CBS affiliate and was replaced on WCIU by Series/JudgeMillsLane, a clip of Lane is inserted with the text "NOT ANYMORE!" superimposed. Still [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fzqG1b1n2XA later versions]] of the song have Judy's segment removed entirely, replaced by a clip of Judge Marilyn Milian of ''Series/ThePeoplesCourt''.

* DoubleTake: In the commercial promoting Svengoolie's website, Sven closes with, "You can use your mouse!", and holds up a [[{{Pun}} rubber mouse]]. He looks at it, then does a double take when he notices what he's holding.

Added DiffLines:

* LighterAndSofter: Ever since the show went national in 2011, the choice of films has mostly stuck to vintage horror movies, as opposed to modern horror movies. Obviously, horror movies back then weren't as gory, invoking this trope.

* OohMeAccentsSlipping: Very much so over the years, with regards to [[FakeNationality Sven being Transylvianian]], and ''how''. It's pretty much gone straight into NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent, he'll start a segment with it or enunciate a word in it here or there but that's all.
** Sven tends to put more effort into it if the movie that week is a {{Dracula}} film.
