* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: There is a puzzle you may get in the second game where you have to lure a sentient vacuum cleaner with a bag of dirt. Normally you're supposed to throw it in the elevator, but when you're on the first floor of the warehouse, you can throw it anywhere on the floor you like...and even into the ''hail room''. Should you do that, the vacuum will try to fetch it as usual...only to let out a very obviously hurt dog-like whimper as it stumbles back to its regular spot.

Sam, a [[XMeetsY cross]] between a [[WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs smurf]] and the comic strip character {{ComicStrip/Calvin|AndHobbes}}, is a young child who likes to dress up in his pajamas with a cape and a mask and pretend to be his hero - Pajama Man. Most of the games each have AnAesop.

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: If ''[=SockWorks=]'' fails to load a level, it instead loads " Bad Level"[[note]]the space at the beginning is part of the title[[/note]] (which can also be accessed by using [=ScummVM=]'s debugger and typing "room 7" without signing in). The level has no socks, only containing four blue conveyor belts, a red laundry basket, and the message "This Level cannot be read from the CD. Please clean the CD and check for scratches." As soon as the level is loaded, a crash is heard, and Sam says "Uh oh... Something's wrong! The Sock-O-Matic only sets itself up like this when it can't read its instructions from the CD. The CD might be dirty, or even scratched! I think you'd better quit the game and try cleaning the CD."

* VisualPun: Some of the click points in the adventure games. Also, the personnel manager at World Wide Weather is a staple remover and the character running the supply room--who's terrified of getting fired--is a stapler.

* PumpkinPerson: ...which you must take from him and wear as a disguise. Yes, there are anthropomorphic pumpkins as well, which inevitably leads to FurryConfusion.

*** He does say though that he needs energy, not food. You just have to make a habit of talking repeatedly to the same character to retrieve all the information.

** The infamous scene in ''Thunder And Lightning Aren't So Frightening'', where Sam can take a dump in a toilet. He opens his buttflap so you can see his naked backside plain in view, does his business, then ''[[{{Squick}} wipes his butt with his cape]]''. Fortunately, this scene can only be obtained by tampering with the game files, so no childhoods are in harm's way.

** The infamous scene in ''Thunder And Lightning Aren't So Frightening'', where Sam can take a dump in a toilet. He opens his buttflap so you can see his naked backside plain in view, does his business, then ''[[{{Squick}} wipes his butt with his cape]]''. Fortunately, What makes this scene can only be obtained by particularly insane is that unlike other Humongous game Easter Eggs which required tampering with the game files, so no childhoods are in harm's way.INI file despite being considerably less harmful than this one, this Easter Egg can be executed with a ''simple keyboard combination''. It's an unintuitive one, granted, but still!



*** On the other hand, in the British dub of the third game, Mickey Hollendaise actually gets away with outright asking "Did I suck?" after his bad performance (the original line was "Did I stink?"). How ''that'' got past the censors is anyone's guess.



** In "No Need To Hide When It's Dark Outside," one of the missions to get the flashlight is incredibly complicated. First you need to get a pickaxe that you then use to pick up some gold. Then you use that gold to cross a bridge, where you pick up a sentient pencil. Then you have to find a hammer that you use to break through some boards, and in order to get the hammer, you have to oil the hinges on the door to the area where the hammer is. Then you go into a passage no longer blocked by the boards and use the pencil to [[ItMakesSenseInContext blow up a wall]]. Then you race into another room that is pitch black. Then you flip a switch to turn the lights on. Then you go back into where the dark room was. There's a winch that is used to send you flying towards the flashlight, but you need a certain gear. So then you go back to Darkness' house to talk to a grandfather clock. He says he'll give you one of his gears if you correctly reset his time. So then you go to another room in Darkness' house to check one of the clocks for the correct time. Then you go back to the grandfather clock and input the correct time. Then you collect the gear, head back into the mines, put the gear in place, and use the winch to haul the mine car up to a great hight. Finally you get into the mine car and unhook him from the winch, which sends you flying straight to pick up the flashlight. Going through it the first time, especially for a young kid, would've been incredibly time consuming and confusing.

What makes it particularly insane is that, compared to the other location it can be in (the shack), this one is ''insanely'' long and drawn-out, where the shack solution is pretty intuitive and only requires a few steps.
