To complement the series, twelve short cartoons starring Bonkers were made to show what his cartoons were supposedly like before he was fired. These shorts were shown on the SaturdayMorningCartoon series ''RawToonage'' (with one exception, "Petal to the Metal", which was shown before the film ''ThreeNinjas'' in theaters), and they were also rerun in four special compilation episodes during the series' run.

* ToonPhysics: Entire episodes revolve around this.
** Case in point - toon bridges. The whole "running through thin air" is a toon bridge, and they stop working the moment the toon acknowledges there's nothing there. Leading to something of a Crowning Moment of Awesome for Lucky (who is notoriously, for a Disney cartoon, bigoted against toons), who chases a suspect across a toon bridge muttering to himself all the way that it's real. It works for him. The moment the villain of the week says "that's impossible" both he and Bonkers fall to the ground (Lucky is standing on a real building).
*** It wouldn't be fair to call him "bigoted" (he seems to like them in a general sense) so much as he routinely finds them grating. There was one occasion when they were chasing a suspect through ToonTown when they come to the intersection of Squash and Stretch Streets; he's actually sort of amused by the contortions Bonkers pulls off under their influence. Slightly less so when it turns out to have a similar (but fortunately less extreme) effect on humans.

* ToiletTeleportation: One of the final shots of the opening sequence shows Bonkers D. Bobcat getting flushed down a toilet, essentially "exiting" the intro.

Backstory aside, the TV series chronicling Bonkers' exploits as a cop was created by Disney as a result of them wanting to make a TV series based on a Toon Cop character. Although the episodes with Miranda Wright as his partner (produced by Duane Capizzi and Robert Hathcock) [[{{Retcon}} come later chronologically]], they were actually produced first; however, [[ExecutiveMeddling Disney was reportedly not pleased with how they came out]] and put a new production team (headed by Robert Taylor) in charge. The Taylor-directed episodes introduce Lucky Piquel as Bonkers' partner. The last of the Taylor episodes, "New Partners on the Block", bridges the gap between those episodes and the 19 Capizzi-directed episodes that made it into the show's run. Sadly, due to [[TooSoon the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing (further exasperated by 9/11, though not the original source of its removal as is commonly believed)]], the episode was cut when Toon Disney still aired classic Disney shorts and cartoon shows.

** Ma Parker was named after the real life criminal "Ma Barker", who was leader of a notorious crime family.[[note]]This isn't the first time the name "Ma Parker" has been used, [[Series/{{Batman}} however]].][[/note]]

* {{Expy}}: Bonkers and Lucky take a fair amount of inspiration from Roger Rabbit and Eddie Valient, respectively, so much so that it is often believed this show is the result of a retool from a scrapped Roger Rabbit cartoon, although WordOfGod says otherwise.
