* DeadlyPrank: Averted in the mystery novel ''Stage Invader''; while the pranks that occur during the Theatre/{{Grease}} rehearsals, like David's sign getting up and Robin's skates getting sabotaged, are dangerous, no one gets hurt. [[spoiler:Even so, everyone calls out Crystal when she has to confess to it because while no one ''got'' hurt, only one injury would have gotten the show cancelled.]] Also [[spoiler:Crystal slipping on a scarf was the only genuine accident, since Ryan's puppy Jinx stole the scarf and left it on the stage.]]
** They do mention that Robin's skates could have gotten her badly hurt and that the only reason she didn't get injured is because Wishbone, [[EvilDetectingDog sensing something was up]], barked loudly, causing her to lose her balance harmlessly on the stage instead of shooting off it because she couldn't turn.

* EvilDetectingDog: Wishbone can always sense when something isn't right; part of the reason he gets in trouble when a stray bloodhound terrorizes the neighborhood is that he's chasing the dog and is right behind it. In ''Stage Invader'', he hears Robin's skate squeaking while she's rehearsing and starts barking in alarm. It turns out her skates were sabotaged so she was out of control. The barking causes Robin to fall onstage, but she says that if he hadn't, she would have rolled offstage and broken something the way Crystal sprained her ankle. [[spoiler:He also finds the bleacher that Crystal has sabotaged, just in time for Sam, David and Joe to find it.]]



* HotForTeacher: In "The Pawloined Paper" Joe develops a crush on his young female history teacher.

* HotForTeacher: In "The Pawloined Paper" Joe develops a crush on his young female history teacher. She [[spoiler:finds out, but merely corrects his spelling on a crossword he made of her name.]]
* HypocriticalHeartwarming: In one episode, when Wanda and Bob Prewett have cancelled a date so that Wanda can go see a mysterious Elvis impersonator and [[spoiler:Mr. Prewett can ''be'' the impersonator]], Wanda tells Ellen that she finds Bob Prewett "stuffy" and she wants to impress this King of Rock and Roll. Later on, when [[spoiler:Bob confesses that he didn't tell her he was the impersonator because he was afraid she wouldn't like the boring him, Wanda laughs and tells him she likes him JustTheWayYouAre.]]

** Joe has another spell of this when some cool kids see his jump shots and invite him to hang out with them, albeit in the YouGetMeCoffee situation. He ends up ignoring Wishbone, Robin, Sam and Joe.

* Expy: Some of the one-off characters that appear in reality are clearly influenced by characters from the novel. For instance in ''Twisted Tail'', Max is clearly based on Oliver as a hungry orphan growing up in an institution where he is mistreated. Zach is clearly the ARtful Dodger, being a FalseFriend to Max whose crimes are blamed on the latter.

*** In their computer game adaptation of the above story, instead of actually blinding Polyphemus by stabbing his eye out, Odysseus merely puts a blanket over his head, covering his eyes.

* AbridgedForChildren: The show and the ''Adventures of Wishbone'' books are the more familiar version, with modern-day scenes interspersed with the abridged literature with one of the characters being played by a dog. ''Wishbone Classics'' was just the abridged novel with occasional commentary from Wishbone from the sides; some of that was also summaries of skipped scenes.

** She gets this again in a mystery book where the core trio, Ellen, Wishbone and [[RememberTheNewGuy and the son of a friend of Ellen's]] end up on a role-playing mystery train; Sam is cast as a lovely young heiress and as such, spends a good portion of the book in the appropriate garb. She's in much better humor about it than she was about the above incident, likely because it is something she volunteered for and is for acting purposes.
