Continuity-wise, it's unrelated to the made-for-TV movie ''TheHauntingHourDontThinkAboutIt''.

** Uncle Howee (from the episode of the same name) seems to be a mix of CaptainKangaroo and [[Series/PeeWeesPlayhouse Pee-Wee Herman]] if he dressed as an old-timey carnival barker.

** The end of "Stage Fright" reveals that [[spoiler: the story of Hansel and Gretel really happened...but the witch did ''not'' attempt to eat Hansel and Gretel and get killed by them as a result, she instead took pity on them and ate their parents, who had abandoned them to die in the woods to start with.]]



* ImAHumanitarian: The witch in "Stage Fright" [[spoiler: who cursed the "Hansel and Gretel" musical because no one was able to tell her story right. She didn't eat the kids -- she made meals out of their parents.]]

* TheSociopath: Meg in "Dreamcatcher" starts out seeming like just a mean girl, but shows herself to be much more than that in the climax when she prepares to callously and even gleefully leave two other girls to ''die'' at the hands of the titular creature. Fortunately, she is hit with LaserGuidedKarma immediately afterward and becomes an AssholeVictim.

** The House from "My Old House" is a sentient building with the ability to summon food, manipulate everything inside of it, communicate through dreams, [[spoiler: turns into a blood red snake made out of its wiring, and can speak]], but we have absolutely ''no idea'' as to what the heck it actually is and how it even came into existence. Which makes its presence all the more horrifying if you realize that [[ParanoiaFuel it's been watching the family for years.]] According to Wiki/TheOtherWiki, it's implied that it might be a demon.

* AllJustADream: "Sick" (though this was ''probably'' subverted when Alex sees the morning news-show hosts telling him that he wasn't dreaming at all and he's also about to die). Same thing with "I'm Not Martin," only the one thing that turned out to be true was Martin's roommate targeting him for his foot to replace the one that got removed.

** The show wasn't afraid of showing or mentioning kids dying. To name a few examples, "The Black Mask" had the visions of the three main characters dying allegedly at the hands of the handyman trying to fix the basement, the twist in "Detention" revealed that Audrey killed Katie the homecoming queen and Halftime the star football player by throwing a smoke bomb under a parade float, but [[HoistByHisOwnPetard also killed herself because the float was out of control and she was in its path when it swerved off the road]][[note]]though this might not count, since Audrey and Kate apologizing for their actions led to the entire detention/stay in limbo being erased[[/note]], Alex in "Sick" was obliterated in a house explosion to get rid of the creature that made him sick, and Will was killed by Jake in "The Dead Body."

** The "Really You" two-parter is one big HumiliationKarma for the SpoiledBrat of a main character being framed for things the doll's been doing ([[FridgeLogic some regardless on if it even made sense]]).

* GreaterScopeVillian: The Really You Company is not only revealed to be an EvilInc, but they bought the business from a crazy old lady hence why most of the dolls including [[CreepyDoll Lily D]] are LivingToys.

** In "Wrong Number" ([[spoiler:in which a mean girl gets trapped in her cell phone, sent as a video message to the Goth girl whom she bullied, and ends up getting deleted]]). Unlike the Cruel Twist Endings listed above, the main character of this episode '''[[BreakTheHaughty deserved]] what happened to her''', since the old woman she harrassed was the grandmother of the Goth girl they bullied. The old woman even let's the bully's "friend" go since she was at least nice to the Goth girl and meant no ill will to either her grandaughter or her. Nice to see some vengeful ghosts can be reasonable.
