!!Tropes:

* AffectionateParody: Of "Robinson Crusoe".
* AllAnimalsAreDogs: Whenever Sam beats back at Dopey Dick, the shark retreats while yelping like a dog. Also, Sam tries to distract Dick with a bone, which Dick goes after.
* DesertedIsland: The setting of the cartoon obviously.
* OhCrap: Bugs has a rather sickly reaction when he learns that he is the rabbit that Sam intends to eat.
* {{Robinsonade}}: With the main shipwreck being an antagonist.
* SuperPersistentPredator: Dopey Dick. Sam [[LampshadeHanging sums it up]] nicely after the shark tries again to get him.
-->'''Sam:''' Twenty years tryin' and ya missed me again, ya shovel-nosed mackerel! No-good bushwhackin' barracuda!
* ThreateningShark: Don't let Dopey Dick's silly appearance fool you -- he is still a threat.
