!!These tropes can be found in ''Omaha!'':
* CrowdSong: People in Omaha are cursed to hold their hands up in the air and sing choruses.
* {{Jingle}}: The reprise finale of the radio commercial: "Whatta they got in Butter-Nut / That they haven't got in other coffees?"
* RepriseMedley: The finale is made up of several earlier songs with different lyrics--in particular, singing "Butter-Nut" instead of "Omaha."
* SdrawckabName: Saying Butter-Nut's name backwards breaks the curse on Omaha (which spelled backwards is "Ahamo!").
* SpellingSong: The ''Theatre/{{Oklahoma}}''-like title song spells "O-M-A-H-A" at the end.
* ThatRemindsMeOfASong: Lampshaded: "Try to keep from bursting into song every time I ask a question, will you?"
