* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Mrs. Shinn delivery of "Baaaaaaaaaaalzac!" sounds like, er, something else. That was intentional.
* GossipyHens: Mrs. Shinn's Ladies Classical Dance Group (AKA the "pickalittle" ladies). Their signature song even has them making birdlike sounds. Lampshaded in the movie with Robert Preston: after the ladies start singing (pick a little, talk a little, pick a little, talk a little, cheep cheep cheep, talk a lot, pick a little more), the camera switches to a view of their bobbing heads—and then to a group of chickens with the same colors as the ladies’ feathered hats.

* DeliberateValuesDissonance: In the "You Got Trouble" number, Harold Hill whips the crowd into a panic about the fallout about a pool table being available for play. While we know this is a scam, it's still amusing to see the locals get agitated about their kids using language that we consider perfectly innocuous like "Swell" and "So's your old man!"

-->It takes judgement, brains,
and maturity to score\\
In a baulk line game,\\
I say
that starts any boob can take\\
And shove a ball in a pocket.\\
And they call that sloth.\\
The first big step on the road\\
To the depths of deg-ra-Day--\\
I say, first, medicinal wine from a teaspoon,\\
Then beer from a bottle.\\
An' the next thing ya know,\\
Your son is playin' for money\\
In a pinch-back suit.\\
[...]\\
You got one, two, three, four, five, six pockets in a table.\\
Pockets that mark the diff'rence\\
Between a gentlemen and a bum,\\

Trouble
with T, a capital 'T' and that rhymes with P, 'P' and that stands for pool!"'pool'!

** Not too weird. Soda fountains have been around since about 1800 and were insanely popular by 1912. There was no place that did not have them. The operator was a "soda jerk", because they pulled a lever to dispense soda water which would then be mixed with different flavors (like a sno-cone). It could get very elaborate. Today's coffee places and baristas are their descendants.
