** The episode "Plane Pals" has an in-flight safety film that pokes fun at various potential in-flight disasters. 5 years after the episode aired, one such scenario [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TWA_Flight_800 came true:]]
-->''"Welcome to Air Pacific, the Jolly Airline. Our deluxe 757 is equipped with a number of safety features to use in case of an emergency, such as our fuel tanks explode, and we crash like a fiery ball into the sea."''

** One of the show's most well-known gags: the "[[Rader/{{Animaniacs}} Finger]] Music/{{Prince}}" bit, has become noticeably hard to watch in light of Prince's passing.

** The short "Yes, Always" seems pretty random and strange unless you're aware of the Creator/OrsonWelles Findus commercial taping that it brilliantly spoofs (and that Creator/MauriceLaMarche's "Brain" voice is a spot-on impersonation of Welles). There's a also a nested bonus when the director bemoans getting kicked off set even after she "[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Labor_Management_Relations_Act_of_1947 Taft-Hartley]]'d" Brain on his first job.

* Arguably, Brain, despite being [[TheNapoleon a height-and-ego challenged evil genius of a mouse bent on world domination]], comes ''so close'' each and every short to his goals of world domination with brilliantly inspirational plots due to the utter incompetents of [[TooDumbToLive Pinky,]] whose idiocy causes everything to unravel at the ''last moment'' and leaves Brain a blubbering mess.

** In Hooray for North Hollywood 1, Mr. Plotz kicks George Lucas out for trying to get "another sequel to star wars" Considering what happened next with the PREQUELS and The Force Awakens, it can get a nice chuckle in a different way now.

----> Mindy's Mother: Buttons, I have to go accept my mother of the year award, look after Mindy while I'm gone.
** Katie Kaboom for basically having no potential as a character, to the point where her cartoons are almost indistinguishable.
*** Chicken Boo for similar reasons, though he has some fans due to the surrealness of the one-joke premise. Interestingly, the two characters appeared together in "Katie Ka-Boo" where she discovers her boyfriend is Chicken Boo and goes berserk ("I AM ''NOT'' OVER-REACTING! '''''I'M DATING A CHICKEN!!!'''''").
