* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: The title object in "Doug's Lucky Hat" lands at Doug's feet on a windy day. When he puts it on, he appears to become a good luck magnet as he finds the only Sky Davis trading card he doesn't already have, wins a KBLUF radio phone-in contest, has his Smash Adams X-ray specs rescued from the laundry by his mother, and tracks down Patti's wayward guinea pig Hamlet. Skeeter believes the hat really is lucky, but Doug is embarrassed to think so, especially when it becomes clear that Patti is dubious about the idea; Roger believes it, though, and forcibly "borrows" the hat - and actually passes a biology test (with a D-) while wearing it. Patti, however, tells Doug that while the hat may have made him feel like a winner, he's a winner with or without it. Whether or not the hat really is lucky is left to the viewer to decide; by the end of the episode Doug isn't sure himself, but it's implied he can live without it as long as Patti thinks he's a winner, and he doesn't object when Roger tells him he's not giving the hat back.

He was perfectly fine when the hat gets blown by the wind again, feeling it's someone else's turn to wear it.

* TheNineties: Aside from the fact that the show debuted early in the decade, most of the clothing and technology in the show definitely represent the decade. [[UnintentionalPeriodPiece Perhaps a little too much.]]

* FunnyForeigner: Fentruck's occasional malapropisms due to not being a native English speaker. However, he's otherwise portrayed as not being that different from his Bluffington-native classmates - he even finds Mrs. Wingo's class's attempts to welcome him with a traditional Yakestonesian greeting amusing, as the people of his country are now as modern as the rest of the world. This was a clever way to avoid cultural stereotyping and possible xenophobia.

* BizarreTasteInFood: To an extent, the entire town of Bluffington could qualify if the menu options at the Honkerburger and other local restaurants are any indication. And in "Doug's Cookin'", the pizza Doug and Patti make for a school cooking assignment ends up topped with banana pudding by accident, and everyone thinks it's delicious. In the ending few minutes we see Doug himself eating a banana and dipping it in a can of pizza sauce.
