The Secret Show (2006-2007) is either an incredibly silly cartoon or a ruthless parody of Martini Flavoured SpyFiction. Probably both. Any trope that gets within a mile of this show tends to end up subverted or parodied. Like all good children's comedy shows it can raise a smile in adults too.

* ThemeTuneCameo: At the beginning of "The Secret Thing", Victor and Anita are singing the show's theme song (as they usually do during the title sequence). It ends up being a plot point [[ChekhovsGun later on]] when Victor is confronted with two Anitas (the real one and an Imposter) and he uses it to [[SomethingOnlyTheyWouldSay determine the real one.]]

* GenreSavvy: Taking advantage of the fact Professor Professor usually phones him during dangerous situations, Victor once left his cell phone behind so the call would distract the enemies pursuing him and Anita. Unfortunately, because agents couldn't waste cell phones like that, ''Anita'' was the one to be rewarded for it.
