* RisingWaterRisingTension: In "The Terrible Trolley Trap", Penelope is afloat in a sealed room that the Hooded Claw fills with water. While the water rises, the Ant Hill Mob search the ship for her. Just as Penelope is near the harpoon on the ceiling, the mobsters open the door and release all the water.

The heiress Penelope, a classic DamselInDistress, was the ward of Sylvester Sneekly. Unknown to her, {{once an episode}} Sneekly assumed the identity of the Hooded Claw. With the aid of his identical [[CreepyTwins twin henchmen]], the Bully Brothers, the Hooded Claw caught Penelope in one DeathTrap after another, in hope of taking over her inheritance. Invariably, the Hooded Claw would [[JustBetweenYouAndMe explain his trap in detail to Penelope]].

* CreepyCrossdresser: In "Cross Country Double Cross", the Hooded Claw dresses as an old woman to trick Penelope into giving him a ride on her motor scooter. In "Hair Raising Harness Race" and "Big Top Trap", he impersonates Penelope herself.

* NoKillLikeOverkill: The Hooded Claw's traps always consisted of some kind of crazy Rube Goldberg-esque setup that would eventually lead to Penelope's death. More often than not, the Claw would always spend nearly a minute explaining how the trap works, and Penelope often takes advantage of the time it takes for the trap to go into action to save herself.



* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: Surprisingly subverted, as despite the pleasure that Sneekly gets from slowly and painfully killing Penelope, when someone else tried to, he was perfectly content to watch and get rid of her.

* FriendToAllLivingThings: Animals have helped Penelope escape several times, and with little wonder; "Arabian Desert Danger" she seems far more concerned about a camel (whose legs have been bound by Sneeky) than her own life.

* HeelFaceTurn:
** The Bully Brothers in the series finale, "London Town Treachery". The Claw intends to fire them after the Ant Hill Mob -- turned into miniature Mr. Hydes from a spiked tea -- put Penelope in a peril, leaving the Brothers with no alternative but to try to rescue Penelope.
** The Ant Hill Mob themselves were originally rival racers in ''Wacky Races'' that ''shot at other racers with Tommy guns'' a few times, so they probably count.
