* OldShame: The Warner trio themselves, {{in-universe}}; The company sealed them (and the cartoons which featured them) away in the early 20th century, refusing to release them because they (both the characters and their films) were nonsensical. Even in present time, they're trying to keep them locked up.

** The show was also so expensive that it couldn't afford character layout drawings. The animators instead blew up the storyboard panels to ten-field size so they could be registered to the animation pegs. Some of the more exaggerated board drawings would end up getting animated, resulting in weird proportional shifts.

The [[WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain other]] [[WesternAnimation/{{Freakazoid}} Spielberg/Rugger]] [[WesternAnimation/PinkyElmyraAndTheBrain shows]] also did this, with similar results.

* RudeHeroNiceSidekick: The show uses this trope a lot:
** The Brain is a condescending InsufferableGenius, while Pinky is a MinionWithAnFInEvil who still likes and admires Brain, no matter how much abuse he gets from him. They are still this in their own show, ''WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain''.
** Slappy Squirrel is a cranky old lady. Her sidekick in all her segments is her nephew, the cheerful and adorable Skippy.
** Rita is an arrogant and sarcastic cat who is always accompanied by dimwitted BigFriendlyDog Runt.

* GagNose: In the episode "Back In Style", the Warners are on a parody of FatAlbertAndTheCosbyKids called "Obese Orson" that has a literal example of this trope. One of the characters is "Hooknosed Harold" who has a running gag of his nose hanging so low that it keeps getting in his mouth.

* InflatingBodyGag: One episode began with Wakko drinking a huge root beer float, expanding, and floating back onto his seat afterwards... then he got hiccups.
** He also inflated with air in the first episode.

* '''Rita and Runt''': Two stray animals -- a cat (Bernadette Peters) who sings showtunes (with changed lyrics) and a dopey (RainMan-inspired) dog voiced by Frank Welker -- try to find a home throughout time and space. These shorts had a tendency to be a bit more melancholy than the others.

* CassandraTruth: Every Chicken Boo short has a naysayer that sees through Boo's disguise and points out that he's a giant chicken. The naysayer is rarely believed until Chicken Boo ends up blowing his cover, which prompts the naysayer to show up and say "[[IWarnedYou I told you he was a chicken!]]"

* JeopardyIntelligenceTest: The first ''WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain'' short had Brain go on the quiz show "Gyp-Parody!" in order to raise enough money for a device to TakeOverTheWorld. He gets every single question right, but bombs the final question and loses everything. Of course, the answer to the final question was [[TheHoneymooners Ralph Kramden]], which Brain would have known [[NotNowKiddo if he had listened to]] [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Pinky]] earlier in the episode.
