* InformedSpecies: Wendell T. Wolf is called a [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/5/57/ThylacineOslo.jpg Tasmanian wolf]], but lacks all the visible distinguishing features of the real animal, [[TheyJustDidntCare even its stripes]]. Taz is also very different from his real-life counterpart and tried to eat Wendell in one episode, while in real life the larger Tasmanian wolves preyed on the devils.

* RuleOfFunny: The explicit reason why the RunningGag of 16-ton weights exists. There were ''laboratory tests'' made, which revealed that only weights of exactly 16 tons, not even a milligram less, were able to make the subjects laugh.

* AdaptationDistillation: There were a few video games made based on the show, but only Taz starred in them (indeed the first game is the only time we see any other characters from the series, which was Taz's family, and only for the opening cutscene. All of the other characters/enemies were generic alligators, carnivorous plants, rock monsters and others, culminating in a final boss battle with a gigantic seagull).
** Francis also appeared as a recurring enemy in this game. Axl and Bull were a stage's bosses in their truck, as well.
*** The Bushrats also appear as enemies in a few stages.
** The Super-NES version focused on Taz's efforts to catch the Kiwi on a busy highway. Some characters from the show would appear as obstacles, and occasionally Digeri Dingo would hand Taz a power-up.

* TooDumbToLive: MarvinTheMartian. He programmed a bomb to destroy Earth ''before'' his spaceship came back to pick him up. He and Taz had to resort to TimeTravel to prevent Earth's destruction.

* {{Hammerspace}}: ''TazMania'' used many of the tropes from the ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' shorts, so Hammerspace was well and truly in effect. In "A Flea for Me", for example, the flea pulls a complete oil well out from under his coat.
