* ItsBeenDone: Parodied, as Felix invents what he thinks is a new act, but in reality has already been done by Creator/CharlieChaplin, who indignantly scorns Felix for alledgedly stealing his act. This also doubles as a MythologyGag, since Otto Messmer had worked on a series of silent Charlie Chaplin cartoons in the past, and Felix was initially inspired by Charlie Chaplin.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Felix meets several Hollywood celebrities, making this the earliest cartoon to use this storyline. Among the people we recognize are Creator/CharlieChaplin, Creator/DouglasFairbanks, William S. Hart, Will Hays, Snub Pollard and Ben Turpin.
* PlagiarismInFiction: When Felix imitates Chaplin, he accuses him of "stealing his stuff".
* PublicDomainAnimation: This cartoon is nearly 100 years old now and thus past its copyright.

* FollowTheLeader: This was the first cartoon to portray famous Hollywood stars. This idea would later be copied by Creator/WaltDisney with cartoons like ''WesternAnimation/MickeysGalaPremier'', ''WesternAnimation/MickeysPoloTeam'', ''WesternAnimation/MotherGooseGoesHollywood'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheAutographHound''. Warner Brothers did the same with ''WesternAnimation/HollywoodStepsOut'', ''WesternAnimation/HollywoodDaffy'', ''WesternAnimation/SlickHare'' and ''WesternAnimation/WhatsCookinDoc''.
