* StarfishAliens: Little Twelvetoes is human-shaped, but he can pop his head off and stretch out his body at will, and said body appears to have pieces that either [[RaymanianLimbs are invisible]] or ''missing completely'' (yet not harming him by their absence). This is probably why that short is so often labeled NightmareFuel.

* FloatingLimbs: Little Twelvetoes takes the concept to extremes. Empty space is apparently a key part of his biology (and his NiceHat), and also his head, hands, and feet are held on like with magnets (i.e. pretty easy to remove and stick on somewhere else) instead of like with flesh and blood.

* AlternativeNumberSystem: The song "Hey Little Twelvetoes" is about a friendly alien with six digits on each hand and foot, who uses base 12 and as such has an easy time multiplying by twelves. It only aired a couple of times, [[ViewersAreMorons because they thought the duodecimal system would be too complex for kids]].

Besides the educational content, the series won accolades for the consistently high quality of the songs - besides Dorough and Ahrens, performers included Jack Sheldon, Blossom Dearie, Essra Mohawk and Grady Tate - and the overall cleverness of the lyrics and animation. Taking cues from ''Series/SesameStreet'' and other contemporary educational programming, ''Schoolhouse Rock'' avoided sentimentality and presented a hip, inclusive, fast-paced and funny (often [[DeadpanSnarker downright snarky]]) attitude to learning.

** On the other hand, the song clearly tells us that his infatuation (and presumably some small talk) lasted for long enough to grow flowers from seeds, so the "pre-courtship" lasted months at the very least.

* WalletMoths: In "$7.50 Once A Week" a moth flies out of the boy's pocket when he looks for more money, but has already spent his entire allowance.

* GaiasLament: "The Energy Blues" is a literal example, in which the Earth itself, voiced by Jack Sheldon, is singing about the depletion of its energy resources and the need for conservation.

* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tyeJ55o3El0&feature=related I'm Just a Bill]]" (America Rock, Jack Sheldon) - A forlorn little bill sitting on the steps of the Capitol explains the long, contentious process by which he someday 'hopes and prays' to become a law. This one became so iconic that only has it been screened in Washington as an instructional film for new Congressional aides, but it also earned ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' parody "I'm an Amendment to Be" (about an amendment against flag-burning waiting to be ratified)[[note]]in the season seven episode "The Day the Violence Died"[[/note]], a ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' throwaway joke in "They Call Me Bill" (which ends with the bill being poked with a trash pick and put into a garbage bag), and the ''Series/TheDailyShow'' parody "Midterm Elections". It was also referenced by ''[[Creator/{{MSNBC}} The Rachel Maddow Show]]'''s coverage of the 2009/10 health care law, and was recently parodied on the season 40 ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' episode hosted by Creator/CameronDiaz, wherein the Bill (Kenan Thompson) gets pushed down the stairs by UsefulNotes/BarackObama (Jay Pharaoh) and replaced with an executive order (Bobby Moynihan) to grant legal status to 5 million undocumented immigrants.
