* BroughtDownToNormal: In "Not Ghoulty", Casper is tried in a ghost court for unghostly conduct (i.e. saving a baby from a burning building) and the judge removes his ghostly abilities until he scares someone again. This does not work out in Casper's favor, as his newfound friends, unaware of his powers being lost, get mad at him when he keeps screwing up good deeds he was a natural at before (i.e. a shopkeeper asks Casper to phase through a locked door to open it, but Casper can't, so he accidentally smashes through the shop window to unlock it). Fortunately, Casper turns the tables on the other ghosts--[[HorrifyingTheHorror he poses as a Ghost Exterminator and scares the crap of them]], restoring his powers.

* StrictlyFormula: Most of the cartoons are virtually interchangable from each other save for some superficial settings and slightly different characters (who all serve identical purposes in the plot). One FamousStudios animator, Lee Mishkin, even had a quote about it:

* RealityWarper: A number of times, Spooky has [[PlotDevice briefly discovered]] a way that his "Boo!" can alter reality, such as reversing time or changing something's size. Usually, he has to scream "Oob!" to reverse it.
** In addition to this, any ghost's "Boo!" seems to be able to make inanimate things jump up and run away, broken automobiles run again, barren trees bear fruit again, eggs hatch, and [[RuleOfFunny whatever alteration works for the panel artist]].
