* PerpetualPoverty: It may not look it, but some parts show that, being a nonprofit organization with tons of tenants, finances are relatively low. It's pretty telling that Herriman only allows two sheets of toilet paper when going to the bathroom.

* SummonBiggerFish: In the Halloween episode, Bloo believes that everyone in the house has turned into a zombie (it was actually an extremely elaborate practical joke that they all orchestrated due their annoyance at him always playing the Spring Snakes in a Peanut Can gag every Halloween). In order to combat them, he steals the candy from a trio of trick-or-treaters and [[ForceFeeding force feeds]] it to Mac, knowing that Mac in his sugar-induced rampage state is stronger than any group of zombies. Of course, this works out against him when it's all revealed to be joke, considering he ended up creating a sugar-hungry monster on Halloween of all nights.

* StrangeMindsThinkAlike: In "Bloo's the Boss" Bloo finds a cat and names him Chuck. Later when the cat's owner comes to collect him it turns out Chuck just happened to be his real name. The same thing happens when Bloo decides to name an imaginary friend Wally just because "he looks like a Wally." In the next scene, it's revealed that that was his real name, again because he looks like a Wally.

** Mac is based on a one-time ''WesternAnimation/PowerpuffGirls'' character, Mike, who had an imaginary friend of his own. Also, his early design had a lot in common with [[{{Peanuts}} Linus van Pelt]], which is particularly telling when you remember that Bloo's design was based off a child's security blanket. And after the pilot premiered, Craig [=McCracken=]'s family told him Mac is pretty much what [=McCracken=] was like when he was little. His name's even "Mac".
** Mac's mother shares a lot of similarities with [[PowerpuffGirls Ms. Bellum]].
