* BizarroEpisode: "How I Spent My Weekend" is told from Elmyra's perspective and animated through her drawings on lined paper. Bizarro just doesn't begin to describe how weird the episode is.
* CreatorsPet: Elmyra, who is basically the reason the show was created.
* CriticalDissonance: In contrast to the hatred the fans have toward the show, it actually got critical acclaim and won various awards, including an Emmy.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: For all the problems with this show, its antagonist Wally Faust left quite an impression in some viewers' eyes. He ''does'' look and talk like an evil ChristopherWalken, after all.
* FanonDiscontinuity: Fans like to pretend that this show doesn't exist.
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: "A Walk in the Park" has a RunningGag where Brain gets trampled by an oncoming parade at a Disneyland knock-off. Five years after the episode aired, a cast member dressed as Pluto died when he was run over by a parade float in the Magic Kingdom.
* HoYay: Occurs in "Pinky's Dream House", where Pinky acts like a housewife to Brain and even sings a song about how happy they'll be together before Elmyra makes his dream come true.
* {{Misblamed}}: For years many viewers believed Creator/KidsWB executive Jamie Kellner to be at fault for the creation of this series. However, during one episode of ''[[Podcast/TalkinToonsWithRobPaulsen Talkin' Toons']]'' with Peter Hastings, it was revealed that the network, despite what the theme song says, did not meddle with the series -- it was, in fact, entirely Steven Spielberg's idea!
* ReplacementScrappy: Rudy Mookich for [[TinyToonAdventures Montana Max]]. Elmyra's most frequently seen pets were now Mr. Pussy-Wussy and Mr. Shellbutt, taking the places of Furrball and Byron Basset (in "The Ravin!", we see that Elmyra has a pet cemetery - maybe she [[FridgeHorror squeezed them to death?]]).
* {{Tearjerker}}: Brain's line near the end of the opening, "I deeply resent this.", can come across as one. Not only does it [[OldShame echo Maurice LaMarche's feelings]] about the ReTool, it's almost as if he knew it was going to flop.
* TheScrappy: This show firmly cemented Elmyra as one the moment it was presented. The show already had Pinky, so there was no need for another idiot to ruin Brain's schemes.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot:
** Admit it, the series would have been a lot better with the rest of the Tiny Toons cast instead of the [[ReplacementScrappy replacements]] mentioned above.
** The show might have stood a chance if Wally Faust appeared more frequently.
