* YouFailHistoryForever: In ''The Treasure of Mockingbird Heights:'' Henry Morgan never came to North America. Furthermore, he was not hanged. (He was a rare famous pirate who retired without being executed or killed)



* BrokenAesop: Eddie has a tendency to brag to the other kids about Herman's abilities, to the point of making them up. This often gets Herman in over his head as he tries to make good on his son's lies. Eddie is never punished for this.

* {{Sexophone}}: Used when Grandpa's latest invention turns Herman [[GenderBender into a woman]]. ([[LightningCanDoAnything He got changed back]] [[StatusQuoIsGod by the end of the episode]]). Grandpa's spell once did the same to Eddie at the end of an episode, so the reset was automatic.
* ShoutOut: Butch Patrick's 1983 novelty single "Whatever Happened to Eddie?" is set to the tune of the theme song and details his life as Eddie Munster.

* HollywoodNatives: While on vacation, Herman is separated from the rest of the family, and stumbles onto a tourist attraction that is a show business tribe. Although most everyone is an actor dressed up as and acting like a Hollywood Native, the tribe somehow has an actual Native American Chief who is so old and delusion, that he believes his tribe is real, and even attempts to marry Herman to his daughter.
