* DesignatedVillain: Charlie Cowell, the anvil salesman who hates Hill and wants to expose him as a fraud. He's a little sleazy, hitting on Marian, but he ends the play [[UnintentionallySympathetic having probably lost his job and watching Harold Hill get away with everything]].

** In a bit of historical irony, the King of Pop, Micheal Jackson, was born in Gary, Indiana the year after the musical came out.

* CrowningMomentOfFunny:
** Mayor Shinn messing up an introduction: "The Wa-Tan-Yee Girls of the local [[{{Malaproper}} wigwam of Heeawatha]] will present a spectacle, my wife -- ''in which'' my wife, Eulalie [=McKecknie=] Shinn, will take a leading part."
** In the opening song, this moment, setting up Harold's bad reputation: "Ever met a fella by the name of Hill?" "Hill?" "Hill?" "Hill?" "Hill?" "Hill?" "Hill?" "Hill?" "Hill?" (In unison) [[BigNo "NO!"]]
** From the film, as Harold tries to get Marian's attention in the library:
-->'''Harold''': "Marbles. Six steelies, eight Aggies, a dozen pee-wees, and a great big glassie with the American flag in the middle. (Beat) I think I'll drop 'em."
-->'''Marian''': "No!"
-->'''Harold''': "Shhh!"
