** Snidely Whiplash [[spoiler: in the first Dudley Do-Right segment. After Dudley arrests Snidley and his gang, he sees that Snidley is out of jail. Asking how he escaped, it turns out the one he captured was [[BrickJoke disguised]] [[ItMakesSenseInContext as Snidely.]]]]
** Played with in the Fractured Fairy Tales episode "Riding Hoods Anonymous", [[spoiler: once the wolf decides to quit Riding Hoods Anonymous and eat both Red and Granny, they run in fear, no longer able to trick him like before. The narrator remarks that it looks like nobody lived happily ever after, but the wolf says he did, before getting blown up by [[ItMakesSenseInContext 200 baskets full of goodies]], to which the narrator says he was right about nobody living happily ever after.]]



* SpringtimeForHitler: In the first ''Dudley Do-Right'' cartoon, Inspector Fenwick wants to plant Dudley as a spy in Snidely Whiplash's crew, but the only way that can happen is for Dudley to get himself dishonorably discharged from the Mounties. Dudley then goes on a spree of criminal activity, such as blowing up a dam and burning down a hotel, only for it to turn out they were things other city officials were planning on doing anyway and he only saved them the time and effort. Dudley is even rewarded for these acts, much to the frustrations of Inspector Fenwick, who then tells Dudley to ''stop'' trying - later that evening, the act of Dudley eating his peas with a knife instead of a fork at chow is what finally gets him drummed out of the Mounties.

* ContrivedCoincidence: Like everything else, used liberally and mocked ruthlessly. When something ludicrously coincidental saves or helps our heroes the show (and later the movie) always make sure to point out how ridiculous is is, either by having the narrator or characters lampshade it or by having the coincidence itself be so absurd that there's no question it's being played with.

This cult cartoon series, produced by Jay Ward and Bill Scott, ran on Creator/{{ABC}} Saturday evenings as ''Rocky and His Friends'' from 1959 to 1961. It featured the serialized adventures of Rocky (voiced by Creator/JuneForay), a flying squirrel who wore flight goggles, and Bullwinkle (Bill Scott), a dimwitted moose. Their primary foes were Boris Badenov (Paul Frees) and Natasha Fatale (Creator/JuneForay again), a pair of Slavic spies from the imaginary Soviet satellite of Pottsylvania. In 1961, the series moved to Creator/{{NBC}} and became ''The Bullwinkle Show''; it ran under that title until 1964. Both series have since been seen in syndication and on cable TV.
