* OvelyLongGag: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IJzoFmsqorc The Emergency Bored-Casting System Test]] is a solid one minute of a low-frequency tone, a sound effect of someone snoring and pictures of various boring pictures (including [[SelfDeprecation some from SoS itself]]).

Svengoolie is the eponymous HorrorHost of a [[LongRunners long-running]] series in [[TheWindyCity Chicago]], where he shows movies (often, but not always, Horror Films). During commercial breaks he'll crack jokes, tell some history of the film being screened, sing songs, do sketches, etc. A popular feature is "[=SvenSurround=]," where he enhances the original audio track of the film with sound effects and dubbed in dialogue.

* CoolShades: Doug always wears them. ''Always.''



* ThePianoPlayer: Doug Graves, who plays the music during the SongParody.



** 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.

* SnarkToSnarkCombat: Whenever Doug and Sven are on at the same time. Special mention goes to "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YpoqG_-1i-c I Want a New Doug]]", where they both spend the entire song insulting.

Added DiffLines:

* SelfDeprecation: Svengoolie re-showed ''Film/RevengeOfTheCreature'' in 2007, and made a few cracks about his infamous 3-D showing of the movie.
-->'''Svengoolie''': I'm still getting complaints, so this time, I'm going to present this movie in terrifying... [[ThreeDimensionalEpisode 2]]-[[SubvertedTrope D]]!\\
[''Later, during the SongParody of [[Music/{{Rhianna}} Shut Up and Drive]]'']\\
'''Svengoolie''': I'm glad this isn't in 3-D, D, D!

** "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.

** 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.

* AudienceParticipation: Faked with using audio clips from various programs, most commonly Warner Brothers cartoons, mixed with stock audio created by Bishop and Koz. The preexisting material gets rotated out as pop culture marches on, but you can still here the same "ow ''ow OW''" stock audio from the '70s in a lot of sketches.

** ''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".
