* HatesSmallTalk: In episode with the WaltDisney {{Expy}} Mr. Brisbee, Brock at first tries to get along with Brisbee's bodyguard, but the other is completely silent and rude. Later on Brock is bored and tries to light a cigarette but can't, at which point the other bodyguard produces a lighter, prompting Brock to say "You're all right." Of course, it was all a trick to knock him out.

** Mr. Brisby is a jaundiced view of WaltDisney, differing only in that he appears to have been limited to a wheelchair for the past twenty years, as opposed to having died and been kept frozen in the basement of Tomorrowland.

** "The Terrible Secret of Turtle Bay", the pilot, has quite a few differences from the regular show. It's the only episode animated using Adobe Flash, giving it a distinctive look. Furthermore, the episode sticks far more closely to a "Parody of WesternAnimation/JohnnyQuest" format than the series does. The twins own a pet dog, Scamp, to better match Johnny Quest (Scamp only shows up in the series in season 3, having died some time after the pilot). Dr. Venture is regarded as a brilliant scientist with a good reputation (which he does not have in the show proper where he's generally a laughing stock). He's also completely genre-blind to the military use of his invention (while in the series proper, Dr. Venture is eager to produce military hardware). Brock is far less of a father figure for the boys, in fact seeming quite happy to ditch them.

** The entire purpose of Dr Henry Killinger is to force this in characters. He's like a more affable [[WalkyVerse Mike]].

* HeroOfAnotherStory: Inverted for a villain with Sergeant Hatred. He was originally a catch-all for whenever another villain needed to be mentioned, particularly for 21 and 24 to steal stuff from. He eventually gained a few [[{{Shotacon}} unsavory quirks]] from offhand mentions before he debuted in the series proper and was integrated into the main cast.
* HerosClassicCar: Brock drives a 1969 Dodge Charger that he converted to electric. Never mind what the Venture brothers thought; her name is Adrienne.

*** The original Team Venture is also full of references. Colonel Gentleman is SeanConnery playing Ham Brooks (one of Doc Savage's aides). Kano is Kato from TheGreenHornet.

** Col. Gentleman, while he looks and sounds like SeanConnery, shares many of the personal traits of the late William S. Burroughs: a relationship with a Maghrebi adolescent boy named 'Kiki', a fondness for hashish, and a tendency to write on and on and on like a crazy person.

** This is {{lampshaded}} with Dr. Entman/Humongoloid. Brock says that Entman reminds him of an unnamed MarvelComics [[ComicBook/AntMan character]].
