** In Brain's retelling of Cinderella in "Narfily Ever After", the story's counterparts of Brain and Pinky mention that one way inventing leather shoes in a society where glass footwear is the norm will be a good thing is that they won't see as much of the Old Woman who Lives in a Shoe, the obvious implication being that her transparent house doesn't hide her from passersby when she is naked in her house.

** Rudy Mookich is pretty much [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Nelson Muntz]] without the "Haw-haw!" In fact, acording to the author of the most extensive article on this series over at platypuscomix, they even share the same voice actor.

* ActuallyPrettyFunny: Happens in "Fun, Time and Space" when Pinky tells a joke to Elmyra (Q: Why don't sharks eat clowns? A: Because they taste funny). Brain overhears the joke and at first expresses contempt towards it, but then grins and states that he understands that the joke is a play on words.



* BigBad: Wally Faust. From what little we see of him, anyway.

* DisneyAcidSequence: "The Icky Mouse Club" has one of these in the middle of the episode.



* ExpressLaneLimit: In one episode, Brain tried to become a masked hero to get people to respect him. One of his attempted good deeds was preventing a man from using the express lane with one item above the limit. Nobody cared.

** "That's Edutainment!" contains jokes at the expense of the E/I rule, Disney's OneSaturdayMorning (Pinky's response to AreYouPonderingWhatImPondering is "I think so, Brain, but ''WesternAnimation/PepperAnn'' makes me sneeze," and he later performs as a parody of Manny the Uncanny), and the decision to put Elmyra in the show.

* UnreliableNarrator: Played with and ultimately subverted in "How I Spent My Weekend". Elmyra's story about Pinky and the Brain's plan sounds rather ludicrous due to Brian planning to take over France by using a giant robot named Roberto to turn all the cheese into annoying American tourists, but there are some parts that Elmyra admits are not accurate, such as Brain stating that he likes dancing in a tutu. By the end of the episode, after Elmyra gets a bad grade for making up the story, it turns out that Pinky and the Brain actually did try to conquer France with a giant robot and that Roberto really did fall for a female robot in France.
