* WritingAroundTrademarks: One Benny Hill sketch had a pretty woman, frustrated by all the pawing she was receiving, turning green and Hulking out. Legend had it that when Marvel Comics found out, they created She-Hulk to prevent this from happening again (In truth, they created She-Hulk as a response to TheIncredibleHulk TV series, fearing the producers would create a spinoff the way network execs did with TheSixMillionDollarMan.)

** In another sketch, he plays a messenger in the EnglishCivilWar. After putting on women's clothing he flirts with several guards to distract them and knock them out. It doesn't work on the final guard. He has an epiphany and flirts with him as a male instead. It works.

* WhenPropsAttack: Benny plays a TV nature presenter parodying Creator/DavidAttenborough. One of the animals he shows is a large spider, which is really a prop that Benny slips onto his hand and his fingers are the spider's legs. While Benny is holding the "spider" and talking about it, the spider crawls up Benny's chest towards his neck. Benny drags the spider back down to abdomen level, and it starts crawling up again. He also gets attacked by an offstage "elephant", which is somebody's arm in a gray sleeve simulating the elephant's trunk.

* FaceHeelTurn: B.A. Baracus pulls one of these in ''[[Series/TheATeam The B-Team]]'' after Hannibal, Face, and Murdock seem more concerned about the possible damage to the Golden Eagle statue they are trying to recover than they are about B.A. having just been shot. When a rebel steals the Eagle back, B.A., the only Francophone on the team, asks him where it is; when Hannibal tells him the Eagle is worth $10 million and that the rebel will face twenty years in prison if he doesn't talk, B.A. gets him to confess the location of the Eagle, then tells Hannibal he still won't talk. While the other team members drag the rebel away, B.A. locates the Eagle and quips, "Dix millions de dollars - ''pour moi!''" before leaving on a motorbike, with the rest of the team in hot pursuit.

* AsianSpeekeeEngrish: Many skits feature Benny dressed up as a Chinese or Japanese man (or woman), and speaking with a stereotypical "Engrish" accent. Much of the humour builds on the straight man misunderstanding Benny's character because of this, and it also gives the opportunity for many {{DoubleEntendre}}s. The racism implicit in these sketches (although the Asian characters are never depicted as inferior to the English, both their looks and patterns of speech are ridiculed) is one reason the show is frowned upon today.
