Added DiffLines:

* 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.

** 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.

Added DiffLines:

* AllegoryAdventure: The fulcrum of the series is Wishbone's penchant for comparing events in his life to classic literature and early theater.

Added DiffLines:

* BloodlessCarnage: This happens any time the "literature" half of a plot involves combat. Justified in that one, ''Wishbone'' is a kids' show and two, half the time the "person" doing the fighting is a dog.
**Averted slightly with the ''Red Badge of Courage'' episode, wherein Wishbone plays protagonist Henry Fleming. He's said to get grazed with a bullet; what we see is a bandage with a red smear.
**Also somewhat averted in the ''Joan of Arc'' episode when Joan takes an arrow to the shoulder. There's no blood but she is clearly in great pain.

** ''Literature/ATaleOfTwoCities'' is divided into three "books". The ''Wishbone'' version, naturally, focuses almost entirely on "Book the Third: The Track of a Storm", which contains the most iconic parts of the story. Ernest Defarge and the Vengeance are AdaptedOut, effectively making Madame Defarge a CompositeCharacter of all the revolutionary characters. Well, maybe. After Darnay is sentenced to the guillotine, Madame Defarge is seen sharing a hug with an unnamed male revolutionary, so it's possible he's meant to be Ernest. Dr. Manette is only identified as Lucie's father and no mention is made of his imprisonment in the Bastille, leaving him so DemotedToExtra that there appears to be no reason he's still in the story at all.
