** That was his voice actor's VerbalTic. Joe E. Ross did the same thing on ''Series/Car54WhereAreYou'' and ''It's About Time'' as well as the other cartoons he voiced--Botch on ''TheHairBearBunch'' and Roll in the ''Shake, Rattle & Roll'' segment of ''CBBears''.

* ConfrontingYourImposter: [[MasterOfDisguise Doctor Disguise]] impersonates several people while trying to escape from Hong Kong Phooey. Phooey is confused when Disguise impersonates Penrod Pooch because he ''is'' Penrod Pooch. Phooey decides to let the villain become Penrod while he becomes Hong Kong Phooey full time but [[HyperCompetentSidekick Spot]] uses the villain's device to revert him to his real form with prison clothes instead of the regular outfit he's seen wearing while not disguised. Phooey just thinks the villain decided to surrender once hearing his name.

Added DiffLines:

* RightForTheWrongReasons: One episode features a criminal who can become invisible and uses this power to steal a set of rare rings. The last two rings belong to people who live in Genova and Rosemary believes the first owner whose ring the thief will steal is the opera singer because even criminals follow the "ladies first" policy. The singer's ring is indeed the first of the last two the criminal steals but that's because [[spoiler:the other ring already belongs to the criminal]].

* LatexPerfection: One episode features a character pretending to be Hong Kong Phooey to claim the rewards the real one refuses. The viewers can't realize he's not even a real anthropomorphic dog before he takes off his mask onscreen.
