* AloofBigBrother: Michael has apparently turned into this thanks to his drug use, much to Corey's distress. Her comment that "You always tell me everything!" suggests that they were very close before he started using.

* BodyHorror: Michael's breaking point comes somewhere between the journey through his own badly damaged brain and the point when it's revealed that he will eventually be so strung out on hard drugs, he will turn into a zombie.

** One of the WesternAnimation/{{Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles|1987}} gives Michael a spiel about how marijuana is bad. Of all the turtles to do so, this special decided it should be ''[[TheStoner Michaelangelo]]''. (It's obvious this is because he was the most "popular" Turtle at the time but the producers clearly had no idea ''why'' he was so popular.)

* NiceHat: One of Michael's female "friends" has a [[Franchise/MortalKombat Kung Lao]] hat that absolutely must be seen to be believed. More proof that the people behind this thing had ''no idea'' [[DidntDoTheResearch how teenagers actually acted or dressed at the time]].

*** For the most part, characters whose shows were animated by Wang (The Disney and WB characters, Slimer, Garfield and the Smurfs) have the least off-model moments. The others (especially the Muppet Babies and ALF) don't fare as well. That the special was animated in only six weeks doesn't help.

* ParentalObliviousness: Michael's parents talk about how worried they are about his behavior -- ''while'' trying to find two cans of beer that have gone missing... ''and'' while ignoring their daughter who tells them that he's been acting strange. She, in turn, neglects to mention the theft of her piggy bank. [[SarcasmMode Wow, that's not strange at all]].\\
It could be argued that they all had to be holding the IdiotBall in that scene to set up Pooh's anviliciousness, but then the scene is kind of lost forever when he tells Corey to consider all the bad things that could happen to her brother if she ''doesn't'' tell her folks what's up. [[CursedWithAwesome Getting to hang out with all your favorite cartoon characters]] [[CluelessAesop is a bad thing?]] (Of course, Michael doesn't get to ''hang out'' with them so much as he gets to be jerked around by them while they take turns telling him what a stupid idiot he is, so that probably takes a bit of the fun away from it...)

* ScareEmStraight: The special is practically a textbook example of (''attempting'') this trope. Lightning storms in your brain, zombie future, Bugs Bunny threatening you...

Added DiffLines:

** Additionally, when Pooh is initially talking to Corey, an instrumental version of the theme to ''WesternAnimation/TheNewAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh'' plays in the background.
