* VictoryByEndurance: The episode "There's no Fuel Like a Re-Fool" starts in the middle of an endurance hunt with the Vulture Squadron waiting until the pigeon is too tired to properly escape. By the time the pigeon is about to be captured, the planes run out of fuel, making it the pigeon's victory. The rest of the episode is centered about the squadron's attempts to make sure fuel won't be a problem anymore.

Although this cartoon was set during UsefulNotes/WorldWarI, Dastardly always had access to a telephone, even in flight, over which the general communicated with him. Just as Dastardly never won a Wacky Race, he never caught the pigeon. A supporting segment, ''Magnificent Muttley'', concerned Muttley's [[MrImagination flights of heroic fantasy]].

* DisproportionateRetribution: In "Sky-Hi I.Q.," Muttley becomes leader of the Vulture Squadron and is subjected to the same HumiliationConga that Dastardly usually goes through. When Dastardly has command reassigned to him (thanks to a screw-up by the efficiency expert who issued aptitude tests to the squadron), he consigns Muttley to 60 days in the dog house (literally).

* {{Foreshadowing}}: In "Fur Out Furlough", Dick Dastardly comments that the 30-day furlough will be all his, prompting Muttley to growl at him until he adds the furlough will be Muttley's as well. That foreshadows a RunningGag between the two characters in ''WesternAnimation/YogisTreasureHunt''.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: In Gold Key Comics' ''Fun-In'' issues #7 and 10 and the two Golden Comics Digest stories, Klunk and Zilly are conspicuously absent. (Zilly does turn up in the last panel of the issue #7 story.)

In Gold Key Comics' ''Fun-In'' issues #7 and 10 and the two Golden Comics Digest stories, Klunk and Zilly are conspicuously absent. (Zilly does turn up in the last panel of the issue #7 story.))
** At the beginning of "A Plain Shortage of Planes", Dastardly's and Klunk's planes are destroyed when Muttley makes Zilly's crash into them and it kickstarts a plot about the lack of available planes for the Vulture Squadron. However, Muttley's plane wasn't damaged and it's never been confirmed Zilly's was. Neither plane has even been mentioned for the rest of the episode.

* BrokeEpisode: In "A Plain Shortage of Planes", after the Vulture Squadron's regular planes are destroyed during the team's first attempt to catch the pigeon, the General informs Dastardly there are no new planes available for them. The squadron's attempts to catch the pigeon for the rest of the episode include a plane bought from [[HonestJohnsDealership Bargain Bill's Used Plane Lot]] and whatever Klunk can build from the remaining parts of planes used in past attempts.

* HonestJohnsDealership: The episode "A Plain Shortage Of Planes" has the Squadron getting a beat-up run-down plane at Bargain Bill's Used Plane Lot. Dastardly offers to pony up $10 for it (Bargain Bill asked for $1000, but he took the sawbuck if Dastardly threw in Muttley's medal).
