* ActorAllusion: Probably unintentional, but amusing enough--when Skip is hanging from a tree branch in the last episode, Augie remarks, "I always knew he was part monkey." Micky Dolenz--most famous as the drummer for Music/TheMonkees--voiced Skip.
* AwesomeMusic
* FollowTheLeader: This show continues on the Meddling Kids train. Originally regarding plot, the show followed the ScoobyDooHoax formula but this was slowly played around with over the course of the season. In some episodes, however, there was no Scooby-Doo Hoax and in the last two, the hoax is back burnered while the main plot of the episode involved Mudsy's past.
** On a unique side, though, the main cast tends to split the usual stock traits that usually would only go to one. April, Skip and Augie each respectively have times of leadership, being smart, cowardice and distress. Mudsy to a lesser extent follows Scooby's lead as the coward who can sometimes be brave. Elmo and Boo themselves tend to act a bit more usual for the silent pets.
* GrowingTheBeard: As mentioned above, the last two episodes of the series do have an odd change from beyond the run of the mill plot. While there is still a ScoobyDooHoax it is put on the back burner inside of the bigger story. The one has Mudsy and the kids going to Mudsy's ancestral home to find the mayor (a descendant of a family the Muddlemore's have a feud with) wants to tear it down. The ghost haunting the house is not really the prominent part of the story. The latter has the kids go to where Mudsy himself lives and shows how Mudsy had been fleeing from red coats burying treasure when he got locked in the clock and eventually died. Modern day thieves don ghost costumes and try to lure him into revealing the treasure's locations. Both of these storylines provide an example of them trying to add a bit more depth to Mudsy's history and are a bit more than the usual unmask the guy ending the series had before hand.
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Averted as of 2010; the entire series was released on DVD through Warner Archive.
* OneTrueThreesome: April to be with both her guys.
* RoadTripRomance: Depending on interpretation. Three teens, varying in style, traveling around. Both Skip and Augie both seem to like April, yet the three of them are still going everywhere together? April seems to like both back. Also, when another person comes along, Augie and Skip are either jealous together or interested in the other girl. And if you thought ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'' had shipping problems, ''The Funky Phantom'' may have on purpose had a three-way relationship going on.

Catchy.

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Averted as of 2010; the entire {{Shipping}}: This Hanna Barbera series was released on DVD through Warner Archive.
* OneTrueThreesome:
had a little more than subtext to be dealt with. Mostly leading to a OneTrueThreesome idea.
** Namely speaking, right from the offset the show appears to go for a LoveTriangle between the three teens but ends up leaving a lot to be imagined. Importantly in that while competitive,
April to be with reciprocates both her guys.
* RoadTripRomance: Depending on interpretation. Three teens, varying in style, traveling around. Both
and they all still travel around and aren't directly antagonistic like say Alexandra was to Josie.
** In "I'll Haunt You Later", when the guys have a disagreement over who will sing, April's response is to ask "which one of you is going to serenade me?"
** In "The Headless Horseman" both
Skip and Augie both seem gravitate to like April, yet the three of them are still going everywhere together? April seems to like both back. Also, when another person comes along, female love interest together, stirring April to get jealous she lost both her boys.
** In "Haunt In Inn" April isn't very shy about both boys seeing her in her nightgown that's even shorter than her usual skirt.
** in "April's Foolish Day", April returns the favor accepting to be the navigator to another racer.
Augie and Skip are either jealous together or interested in the other girl. And if you thought ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'' had shipping problems, ''The Funky Phantom'' may have on purpose had a three-way relationship going on.don't really bicker as much as they just want their girl back.

* HeyItsThatVoice: Franchise/TheMonkees' Micky Dolenz was the voice of Skip.
** That's Daws Butler doing his Snagglepuss voice for Mudsy, right down to his verbal tics, even.
