* ShortCutsMakeLongDelays: A recurring plot element and running joke in the cartoon series is that all of Bill's "short cuts" invariably lead to some sort of strange adventure, but never where they wanted to go in the first place. In one episode, the two decided to split up and make a race out of it. Naturally, this time it's Rupert taking the proper route who finds himself in a land of adventure, which implies that it's not the shortcuts that lead to adventure, [[WeirdnessMagnet it's Rupert]].

* MirrorUniverse: Played with in "Rupert in Mirrorland", where Rupert's friend the Professor uses an invention of his to discover that there is a world beyond the mirrors where the reflections of everyone in Nutwood are sentient beings. A side effect of the experiment causes the Professor's reflection to become evil, but he's back to normal after the crisis is resolved and the reflections of everyone else in Nutwood are pretty much the same as their Nutwood counterparts in personality and behavior.
