* MediumBlending: The show will occasionally throw in a short live-action scene. DVD commentary on "Blackwatch Plaid" (which combines this with StockFootage ) reveals this was actually a convenient way to save money, as Turner has access to mascot costumes of practically every Hanna-Barberra character. Even forgotten characters like Birdman himself.

The series received little merchandise from Adult Swim, which included figures of Sebben and the giant bear. A PSP game was also created by {{Capcom}}), that used the ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney'' game engine; it suffered mightily, however, as the absence of Colbert and his voice double forced Capcom to cast a poor replacement voice, who was widely disliked.

No relation to the 2014 MichaelKeaton film {{Film/Birdman}}, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DP8g7yH584g although the joke's been made]].

* TechnologyMarchesOn: Invoked and spoofed with X's death ray, which is a button-covered, desk-sized console that uses vacuum tubes and takes half a minute to charge up (once X can find an electric outlet) before firing (or a vacuum tube blows out) that he nonetheless treats as a portable weapon. Understandable as it was created for the original series back in the 70's.
** Also spoofed when TheJetsons (from the far off year of 2002) try to sue the present. George convinces the court room that a punch card reading "Jury-Vac" computer is more efficient and reliable than an actual jury.

* AlternateAesopInterpretation: In-universe, Phil Ken Sebben seems to think that the moral of ItsAWonderfulLife is that S&L's are sound investments, and that George Bailey was the villain.
