* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: Mighty Mouse's diatribe about Saturday morning TV to the toddler, who said he was bored:
-->'''Mighty Mouse''': Well, of course you're bored! Look what you're watching! Hour upon hour of electronic pablum!! Imitation is the sincerest form of television!!
** And then after he convinces the tyke to go out and play:
-->'''Mighty Mouse''': (''to us'') But enough of all this lying and hypocrisy...time for what television's ''really'' about. (''cut to commercial'')

-->It was the first series that was completely created by cartoonists: It was written by cartoonists, all the creative decisions were made by cartoonists, and we created all the characters. It was totally different from anything anybody had done. We broke every rule you could think of, everything they told you that you couldn't do.[...]A whole bunch of things we did once or twice on Mighty Mouse became whole trends in other people's cartoons. [[FollowTheLeader Everybody copied it instantly]].
* HilariousInHindsight: "Snow White and the Motor City Dwarfs" has a witch transporting a fairy tale princess into the big city. [[{{Film/Enchanted}} Sounds familiar?]]

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: ''The New Adventures'' suffers from this badly nowadays. It was a revolutionary show and concept for its day, and essentially served as a training ground for future animation pros today, and for bringing back cartoon animation in the vein of classic cartoons to the mainstream in TV. However, today, due to the success of all the shows created in it's wake, especially ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'' most modern viewers might not find it revolutionary, not helped that the show had many production woes and animation and art mistakes (as attested by former staff, [[http://johnkstuff.blogspot.com/2008/09/wonky-2.html including]] Creator/JohnKricfalusi).
* TheWoobie: Gandy Goose becomes this in "The Ice Goose Cometh". He was frozen in 1944 and didn't thaw out until 1987, [[FishOutOfTemporalWater finding out that nobody remembers him or his cartoons anymore]]. On top of that, he suffers from separation anxiety due to missing his old partner, Sourpuss. Thankfully, he gets a happy ending when Mighty Mouse finds Sourpuss and reunites the duo.
