* AwesomeMusic: When Dick Dastardly leaves Muttley to drop to the crocodiles in the ''Magnificent Muttley'' short "Movie Stuntman", such music starts to play.
** That was a snatch of background music from ''WesternAnimation/ThePerilsOfPenelopePitstop.'' The ep also uses background music from ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooWhereAreYou''
* DontTryThisAtHome: If you learn anything from this show, don't try to stop a pigeon.
* EarWorm: STOP THE PIGEON!, STOP THE PIGEON!, STOP THE PIGEON!, STOP THE PIGEON!, STOP THE PIGEON!, STOP THE PIGEON!, STOP THE PIGEON!
** The background music, especially the rinky-tink piano chase music, would be used on numerous H-B shows henceforth up to around 1980. The ''New Franchise/ScoobyDoo Movies'' episode "The Ghost of the Red Baron" uses it virtually exclusively.
* FridgeBrilliance: Given that attempting to catch a pigeon is preferable to fighting in UsefulNotes/WorldWarI, the Vulture Squadron's failures may be on purpose.
** In "Fur Out Furlough", when the General offered a 30-day furlough to whoever caught Yankee Doodle Pigeon, Zilly planned to spend it in Miami and Klunk planned to spend it in Hawaii.
*** [[FridgeBrilliance Furlough where you don't have to fight for thirty days, or internment in an enemy country where you don't have to fight for the rest of the war?]]
* HilariousInHindsight: Muttley growling at Dastardly to be included at a furlough Dastardly had just claimed as his became even funnier with how Muttley would later react in ''WesternAnimation/YogisTreasureHunt'' whenever Dastardly claimed the treasure of the week as all his.
