* Launchpad's therapist is Ludwig Von Drake -- that alone is funny! But then Ludwig goes on to diagnose him as a cuckoo and tells him a special method (which is just "om"-ing with eyes closed). By the end, both are on the couch "om"-ing after seeing a harpy.

Added DiffLines:

* After leaving his Webbed Wonder suit in the helicopter to [[DeadHatShot fake his death]], Launchpad starts walking off -- and then [[HandOrObjectUnderwear covers himself]] and says he'll end up in jail if he doesn't replace his clothes. The funny thing is, Launchpad still has long underwear on, meaning he's ''already'' more dressed than [[HalfDressedCartoonAnimal most citizens of Duckburg]]!

-->'''Victor:''' Not yet, dumb duck! There's more!
* When hypnotized Donald removes the master control device from the submarine periscope, he misunderstands a command.
-->'''Cinnamon:''' ''(voice-over)'' Hide it under your hat. ''(Donald plops the control device on top of his hat)'' UNDER your hat, stupid! ''(Donald places the device under his hat)''
** Also keep in mind these were orders ''prior'' to sending Donald on his way.

* A lampshade hanging on one of the series' running gags: Scrooge gets irritated at Launchpad for not being in the cockpit where pilots are supposed to be when they're ready to take off. Launchpad points out that Scrooge said he was never piloting for him again. Scrooge answers that he ''always'' says that.


* In the Italian dub, ''every time Magica and Poe speak'': [[{{Woolseysm}} they were given a heavy Neapolitan accent to reflect the fact they live there]], but the connotations of LargeHam (even for [[WorldOfHam Italy's standards]]) and being generally funny it has for the Italians just make every time she speaks much funnier.
