** Although now that we're clear on that subject, if the need for a butler ''does'' arise, Jeeves can "buttle with the best of them.")

Added DiffLines:

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: One of the characters, Roderick Spode, was a satirical NoCelebritiesWereHarmed take on a pre-World War II British Fascist politician. Wodehouse could not have imagined the way another fascist government would affect his life. Prior to World War II, Wodehouse had moved to France. In the German invasion, Wodehouse was captured and coerced into participating in several German propaganda broadcasts. As a result of the scandal that followed, Wodehouse would never again set foot in the country of his birth to the day he died.

* HilariousInHindsight: It's now even funnier to see so much slapstick nonsense happening at ''Series/DowntonAbbey''.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Jeeves can become quite sinister when you look at him a certain way. He manipulates Bertie to be dependent on him and passive-aggressively forces him to live in a way that keeps Jeeves employed -- although in the end, he always reveals to Bertie what he's done, and not only does Bertie not mind, he's happier hanging out with Jeeves than with any other character.

** In the TV series the ValuesDissonance of the minstrel show is {{Lampshaded}}: Jeeves comments on the supposed origins of blackface minstrels, saying that its being based on plantation slaves [[HappinessInSlavery singing songs about their happy lives]] to be "[[PoliticallyCorrectHistory an unlikely contingency, one surmises, bearing in mind their situation.]]"
