* CatsHaveNineLives: Literally so, in the case of Fraidy Cat.

* BarefootCartoonAnimal: Seven of the 9 Lives of ''Fraidy Cat'' have costumes that apply to this trope. #2 Kitty Wizard; #3 Captain Kitt, a pirate; #4 Sir Walter Cat, a noble cat; #5 Billy the Kit, a cowboy; #6 Jasper Catdaver, an undertaker; #7 Captain Eddie Cattenbakker, a pilot; #8 Hep Cat, a cat in a zoot suit.
* CatsHaveNineLives: Literally so, in This is the case premise of ''Fraidy Cat''. Fraidy Cat.is already nervous because he's on his final life, and it doesn't help that the ghosts of his eight previous incarnations keep appearing to him if he (even accidentally) intones their number. At least one of these ghosts, who was an undertaker in life, hopes to bring Fraidy over to the afterlife. The worst one is Cloud Nine, a PsychoElectro storm cloud who tries to electrocute poor Fraidy. Pretty morbid for a kids' show, eh?
* PsychoElectro: The "Fraidy Cat" segments feature a cat whose [[CatsHaveNineLives nine lives]] come back to haunt him as ghosts. Fraidy's final (and current) life is personified as Cloud Nine, a sinister storm cloud who's fond of ejecting lightning strikes and always chases down Fraidy to zap him to death.

Bitterbottom. The show was such a flop that ABC told Filmation to never sell them another show. Ironically after ABC canceled ''Uncle Croc's Block'', they replaced it with Filmation's 1970 show ''The Groovie Goolies''.
