* OlderThanTheyThink: The concept of an animal with human trains of thoughts and a big imagination had already been explored in [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Secret_Lives_of_Waldo_Kitty The Secret Lives of Waldo Kitty]], through ''Waldo Kitty'' was hald-animated/half-acted and it had {{shout out}}s to more modern pop culture (of these days) than classics.

* NarmCharm: The concept of a well-read doggie dreaming and imagining himself as the hero of various stories and novels is bizarre, but at the same time impossible to be indifferent to.

** In the "Purloined Letter" episode, the unnamed King and Queen of France are made to look like Louis Philippe I and Maria Amalia, who were the King and Queen of France at the time the story was written. Later, the man causing a disturbance in the street is given dialogue which is mostly unintelligible, but enough of it can be heard to establish him as a fanatical Bonapartist. Neither of these details were present in the original short story, but were evidently added for the benefit of ''Wishbone'' fans who are familiar with 19th century French politics.

* GeniusBonus: The contrast between military captain Miles Standish and his intellectual best friend John Alden is a big point in ''The Courtship of Miles Standish''. The episode doesn't really go into that but their counterparts are the modern teenage equivalents: Joe the basketball star and David the science whiz.

* {{Squick}}: Many episodes, such as ''Literature/ATaleOfTwoCities'' and ''Literature/PrideAndPrejudice'' featured the titular canine playing a heroic lead together with a human, female love interest. This lead to many, many scenes of attractive young actresses behaving in a romantic and cuddly manner to [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy a freakin' dog]]!

* TearJerker:
** Frankenstein (given that they follow the theme of the book, it's pretty hard not to be one).
** The scene in Dances with Dogs as Joe remembers his father pushing him on the tire swing is a bit heart wrenching.
** The end of the ''Tale Of Two Cities'' episode. They keep the "it is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done" line and the guy playing Sydney Carton is actually a pretty good actor. Just try not to think too hard about how he expects no one to notice that a dog has been replaced by a human man.
** Joan of Arc saying goodbye to her friend before her execution.
