** ''Beethoven's Second'' has a particularly dark scene when Ryce stops by a party hosted by a guy she likes. They go up to a room where they start kissing. Ryce suddenly decides she wants to leave, but the guy locked the door. You can imagine what would have happened if Beethoven didn't inadvertently save her.

* CrowningMomentOfFunny: During the montage, George comes home to find it a mess, the stair railing covered in drool, and finding Beethoven all wet in his bed, and shakes himself dry, getting George all wet.

* UnacceptableTargets: The American Veterinary Association wrote a letter to the head of the MPAA (Jack Valenti) about the main villain of the first film being a veterinarian.
* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: DateRapeAverted ends up being played for a laugh just because the would-be rapist suffers damage to his house and falls in the water.

* MisaimedFandom: One professional critic found George to be UnintentionallySympathetic and his family and Beethoven to be UnintentionallyUnsympathetic. According to him, George works his hands to the bone trying to provide a good life for his family, who thank him by foisting a dog on him that he doesn't want, making him do all the gross parts of taking care of it, and then ostracize him when he gets rid of it. In his opinion, the family isn't just ungrateful and unappreciative but downright nasty towards George. The critic did at least admit that he wasn't a big fan of dogs in the first place though.

* SurprisinglyImprovedSequel: Quite a few consider ''Beethoven's Big Break'' to be a major improvement over ''3rd''-''5th'', for actually trying to do something original with the series rather than just rehashing the first two films.

* BizarroEpisode: Despite the rather improbable things that Beethoven does throughout the series (particularly in the third film) the films remained a pretty realistic feel throughout. Not so much with ''Beethoven's Christmas Adventure'', which features one of Santa's elves as a central character, a magic bag which can produce an infinite number of toys, and Beethoven ''talking'' to people after they eat magic candy which allows them to understand dogs.

* {{Sequelitis}}{{Sequelitis}}: The first film was a modest hit when it came out, but wasn't anything particularly special. However, the success of the film apparently was enough to give Hollywood an excuse to turn it into a franchise, resulting in a film series that became more and more out of touch with the original with every installment. While ''Beethoven's 2nd'' stayed true to the original formula with its then-familiar cast and Beethoven still at his usual canine antics, ''Beethoven's 3rd'' saw Beethoven transferred to a new family headed by father Judge Reinhold replacing Charles Grodin, with increasingly uninspired villains and stories appearing in each installment. By the time of Beethoven's '''sixth''' film appearance, the series was rebooted and retooled and then the '''seventh''' installment, ''Beethoven's Christmas Adventure'' had Beethoven ''talking'', finally doing away with what little resemblance the sequels still bore to the original. There was also a short-lived ''animated series''. This hound knows no bounds.

** Another from the first film Dr. Varnack going through all the lengths to get Beethoven for the sole purpose of shooting him to test a new type of ammunition.

**Also from the first film, [[spoiler: the villain getting impaled with a bunch of syringes. Even though he survives, [[FamilyUnfriendlyViolence it's still rather jarring for a family film.]]]]
