* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: As noted in the Comic Book Adapation trope, Scooby-Dum and Sooey Pig were left out of the Laff-a-Lympics comic book. Neither the Scoobys nor the Rottens seemed to be aware of it.

* ColorCodedCharacters: The competitors wear their team shirts ''over'' their [[LimitedWardrobe normal attire]] ([[HalfDressedCartoonAnimal where applicable]]). The [=YYs=] wear red uniforms, the [=SDs=] are blue, and the [=RRs=] are green. A fourth team, the Dabba Doozys who were discarded after being presented, would have had yellow team shirts.

* CompositeCharacter: Orful Octopus combines traits of Squiddly Diddly and Occy the Octopus, the Gruesomes' pet octopus from ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones''.



* {{Crossover}}

to:

* {{Crossover}}DickDastardlyStopsToCheat: The Rottens ''want'' to win by cheating. The one time they win a competition legitimately, it leaves them pissed off, although they don't object to winning individual events legitimately.



* [[DickDastardlyStopsToCheat Dread Baron Stops to Cheat]]: And the Rottens ''want'' to win by cheating. The one time the Really Rottens won legitimately, it left them pissed off.
** The Rottens would legitimately win some events. When the team member does (Mumbly in the burro race, for example), it shows the other Rottens cheering vicariously (by way of stock animation).



** Orful Octopus is a CompositeCharacter Expy of Squiddly Diddly and Occy the Octopus (The Gruesomes' pet octopus.) There may be a trace of Ocho, the pet octopus from the 1973 ''Addams Family'' cartoon.

* HeelFaceTurn: Mildew Wolf was originally an antagonist, in the "It's the Wolf!" segments of ''WesternAnimation/TheCattanoogaCats''. On that show, Mildew was voiced by Paul Lynde, who by 1977 was subject to scandal. John Stephenson would voice Mildew on ''Laff-a-Lympics''.

** Mildew Wolf referring to everyone as "savages" is a double reference to both his original voice actor, Paul Lynde (who again, originally voiced Mildew), and the Hanna-Barbera series ''WesternAnimation/WheresHuddles'' (CBS, 1970), in which Lynde played Claude Pertwee, a character who often referred to show's football-playing Fred and Barney [[{{Expy}} expies]] as "savages".

* KangarooPouchRide: One episode features a kangaroo race as the last event. Each team has an entrant riding in a kangaroo's pouch. The Really Rottens use a mechanical kangaroo instead of a real one, which [[LoopholeAbuse isn't against any rules]].

WesternAnimation/{{Snagglepuss}} and Mildew Wolf provided commentary as the teams engaged in various contests of skill and endurance. [[WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones Fred Flintstone]] and WesternAnimation/{{Jabberjaw}} made occasional guest appearances as judges.

* GoldenSnitch

to:

* GoldenSnitchGoldenSnitch: Usually, the points awarded for each event are 25 for the winner, 15 for the second place and 10 for third but some episodes have one event that offers a 50-point-bonus or all points are given to a same team. It doesn't always guarantee overall victory for the team that wins it.

* GotVolunteered: In one episode, Augie Doggie and Doggie Daddy had to play the last event because the other Yogi Yahooeys took steps back when Yogi called for volunteers. As Doggie Daddy said, he and his son were volunteered by a bunch of backstabbers.

Added DiffLines:

* TheGhost: The Narrator and Announcers make multiple references to unseen "judges" that often hand out rulings and penalties. In the trivia WhatCouldHaveBeen entry, it would appear at one point Hong Kong Phooey and Spot were to have filled this role before Spot was dropped and Phooey joined the Scooby Doobies.
This list shows the last 10 events of 68. Show all.
