** Then there's Pepito in "Madeline and the Bad Hat", who before he came around is gifted with a tool chest by Miss Clavel, which he uses to build himself a ''guillotine''. With this, he beheads his chickens to cook for dinner. The girls and Miss Clavel react to this sight about as well as you'd expect.


* AmericansHateTingle: The series is unknown in France, which is a big surprise for anyone who thinks it's of French origin. In fact, ''Madeline'' is an American franchise that just happens to be set in France.


* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: ''Lost in Paris'' has the song "We Can Sing, We Can Dance," which is rather similar to "[[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast Be Our Guest]]", complete with similar lyrics.

* OlderThanTheyThink: Lord Cucuface's name being changed to Lord Covington in the 1998 film was preceded by the ''Shirley Temple's Storybook'' episode in 1960 which changed his name to Mr. Murgittroyd. Likewise the idea of a SettingUpdate also originates with that episode, setting it in the then present day if the mention of Creator/FrankieAvalon and television is any indication. The AdaptationalHeroism for the Gypsies in the animated special of "Madeline and the Gypsies" also originates from this episode.
