* 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.
* PeripheryDemographic: A lot of teenagers and adults enjoyed the show and still do.
* {{Squick}}: Many episodes, such as ''ATaleOfTwoCities'' and ''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]]!
