** One particularly interesting case is the several times that people who are cheating "Daddy" Warbucks sing "Happy Days Are Here Again," which was FDR's signature song from the 1932 election. It was a subtle jab at the New Deal. Gray was no fan of the New Deal. Take note, reader: good people never sing that song in ''Little Orphan Annie''. When we hear it, it's always somebody evil who's singing.

* ArtisticLicenseLaw: Warbucks uses a hidden camera to film Phil O. Bluster, Busard and their cronies when they're discussing their evil doings. Then, he presents this as evidence against them during their trial. This wouldn't really work in real life, (mostly because Warbucks would either have to admit that he filmed people secretly and without their permission, or present the movie as faked,) but later Warbucks admits that it won't work as evidence -- the real purpose of the footage is to turn people against Bluster & c:o, which will increae the odds that they'll be convicted. In other words, this is a[[SubvertedTrope subversion.]]
