* OneCrazyNight: "The Babysitter" takes place in one night, in which Mom and Dad go out on the town, and leave Cow in charge of babysitting Chicken; after Mom and Dad have a happy time at the Sad Club, and return to see Cow is (in their perspective) a great babysitter, they leave on the spot for an extended overseas vacation.
** "Night of the Ed" deals with Dad deciding one night that the family needs a pet, and brings home a jackal, leaving Cow and Chicken home alone with the savage (albeit miniature) beast.

* WoundedHeroWeakerHelper: Exploited by the Red Guy as a ruse to expose Cow's SecretIdentity. He rings the doorbell, and Cow responds to see a Superman {{expy}} lying prone on her doorstep with a huge green rock embedded in his spine. The expy pleads for Cow's help to remove the kryptonite, but Cow defers, saying, "I'm just a widdle cow." She may have seen through Red Guy's hammy acting, or Cow may be TooDumbToFool.

* SeadogPegLeg: Whenever Red Guy poses as a pirate - such as Cap'n Butz Pirate - he will often tape his feet to his butt and attach peg legs to his knees; however, in "Lawnmower Chicken," he actually had peg legs, despite just being a grumpy old neighbor.

* BringingRunningShoesToACarChase:
** In "The King and Queen of Cheese", Chicken notices Cow has dropped her Crabs the Warthog doll on the platform at the train station after she has already boarded the train and it has left; he chases after the train on foot - all the way to Arkansas - to give her her doll.
** In "Cow and Chicken Recycling", a pair of art thieves rob Red Guy's museum under the cover of darkness, but after they take off in their getaway truck, Red chases after them on foot - and can surprisingly run as fast as they drive.

* {{Expy}}: Mom and Dad are all too similar to [[WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow Mr. and Mrs. Pipe]] (only more mentally disturbed), Cow is a lot like [[WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow Stimpy]], and Chicken has some visible likeness to [[WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow Ren]]. Also, the Red Guy and how he changes jobs and roles depending on what is needed for the plot is very much like [[WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow Mr. Horse]]. Granted, Dave Feiss worked on ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'', and Creator/JohnKricfalusi doesn't seem to mind how much influence he took from it, openly admitting he likes ''Cow and Chicken'' (and Kricfalusi usually dismisses every cartoon as not being as good as the stuff Creator/BobClampett did back in the GoldenAgeOfAnimation).

* PersecutedIntellectuals: The episode, "Black Sheep of the Family," invokes and lampshades this. Because Cousin Black Sheep is actually a very articulate sheep, and the rest of this universe is a CloudCuckooland, other characters [[CallingMeALogarithm take Black Sheep's big words as insults]], to the point that even Red Guy, who is Officer O'Fannihee, deems Black Sheep as a wanted criminal.

Subverted with Officer O'Fannihee because this is not his primary reason to deem Black Sheep as a criminal. He just blames Black Sheep for something other people did.
* PlayingSick: In "Playing Hookie", Chicken pretends to be sick so he won't have to take a test he didn't study for. When he finally convinces his parents, they call a Doctor who happens to be the Red Guy. After deeming Red's treatments scarier than the test, Chicken admits to be playing sick, prompting the Red Guy to confess he was just playing doctor.
