* AncientGrome: Averted in the episodes based off ClassicMythology -- "The Odyssey", "King Midas", "Hercules and the Golden Apples", and "The Aeneid". Whether a deity is called by their Greek or Roman name depends on the source. The only exception is the tale of "Hercules and the Golden Apples", will the title character is using his Roman name in a Greek setting (although since every adaptation of Hercules does pretty much the same thing, this can be forgiven).

* 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 the ''{{Theatre/Faust}}'' episode, it is [[AdaptationExplanationExtrication not explained why Gretchen ended up dying in a dungeon]]. In the original play, Faust got her pregnant out of wedlock and she was sentenced to death for committing infanticide.



* {{Satan}}: He's depicted in the ''{{Faust}}'' episode, and yes, they did one. He's mostly referred to as "Mephisto", but the InadvertentEntranceCue for his first appearance clearly identifies him as the Devil. Mephisto is portrayed as a man who dresses in Renaissance clothing (contemporary to Faust's time), speaks in a [[VoiceOfTheLegion modulated voice]], and [[PlayingWithFire controls fire]].

* 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.]]
