* HarsherInHindsight: ''The Adventures of Letterman'' short had a villain, the Spellbinder, whose primary mission was to wreak havoc by changing letters of words into new words, causing humorous situations ... for the most part. However, there were several episodes that, while when aired in 1974-1976 might have been seen as funny, would have such situations classed as terrorism today. These include Spellbinder changing "plane" into "plant" (by changing the "e") and causing it (the plane had dozens of children on it) to fall toward the earth; and removing the "b" in bridge to create a "ridge" and a way for a high-speed passenger train to fall into the crevice and kill dozens of children. These segments would be banned from television after Sept. 11, 2001.

** One segment showed the text "thin" and "fat". "Thin" squeezes, well, thin, while "fat"...nearly overtakes the entire screen. It can be really frightening if you're not expecting it.

* UnfortunateImplications: Several promos for the new series, which ran before its debut, showed the 1971 lightbulb for a second before ''shattering'' into the new logo.

** Each time the theme song was re-vamped, it seemed to add a new ear-wormy line to the tune. *** From the very start, there was "We're gonna turn it on! We're gonna bring you the power!" ** *** In Seasons 3 and 4, they added "We're gonna open the book, and read every word we can see!" ** *** And for Seasons 5 and 6, there was the new introduction, "Movin' out in a new way!

* HilariousInHindsight: Nowadays, knowing that at least once it was Creator/MorganFreeman in the Spider-Man suit is even funnier since in the ComicBook/UltimateMarvel universe there really is a black Spider-Man.

* RetroactiveRecognition: Yes, Morgan Freeman was one of the original cast members (and yes, it ''is'' weird to see him this young).

* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: Three episodes in a row (the last three of Season 1) seem to give off a shared aesop of "''Never'' trust or befriend anyone who has been bad but seems to have [[HeelFaceTurn changed his ways]], since they'll always turn out to still be douches in the end." ** Not to mention the episode about Lisa's colonial ancestor, who was believed to be a traitor. It looks like it's shaping up to deliver the reasonable aesop that if an ancestor or family member does wrong, it doesn't mean that ''you'' are a bad person. But nope, Lisa's ancestor is revealed to have been a hero all along, which leaves one with the impression that having an ancestor or family member who did something wrong is a ''horrible'' fate and shouldn't ever happen to a good person.
