This episode provides examples of:


Plucky's Dastardly Deed:

  • Air-Vent Passageway: Plucky travels through the air vent to reach the inside of Foghorn's desk and switch his paper with Egghead Jr.'s.
  • Extreme Omnivore: Dizzy, when he eats his desk.
  • File Mix Up: Plucky intentionally switches his test with that of Egghead Jr., the smartest kid in class, but later feels guilty about doing it.
  • Advertisement:
  • Good Angel, Bad Angel: Spoofed; Plucky has a shoulder devil and a meaner shoulder devil who calls the first one a wuss.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Plucky feels this way after he switches his test with Egghead Jr.'s.
  • Nightmare Sequence: Plucky has one that's brought upon his guilt, wherein he goes up to get his diploma on graduation day, only to get a piece of paper with "Cheaters Never Graduate" written on it. Plucky is then attacked by said piece of paper and is hounded by a bunch of Foghorn Leghorn clones calling him a cheater before the floor of the auditorium turns into a trampoline and catapults Plucky into the sky.
  • Off-Model: During Plucky's dream about graduation, Babs is depicted with a pointy tail (like Buster's) instead of her usual cotton tail. (Interestingly, despite this episode being animated by Kennedy Cartoons, there aren't very many off-model instances, and looks quite normal.)

  • Ridiculous Procrastinator: Plucky once again forgets to study for the test, and tries to hide a large amount of crib notes in his tank top to help him pass, which Foghorn is quick to notice. Plucky later attempts to switch his test with Egghead Jr.'s, only to regret doing so.
  • "Shaggy Dog" Story: Near the end of the short, it is revealed that Foghorn accidentally dropped the test papers into a mud puddle, and because this happened before he could look at any of them, he makes the students retake the test. Inverted somewhat as while the other students were dismayed at having to retake the test, Plucky is elated as he gets a second chance to take the test honestly.
  • Tempting Fate: To ease the guilt, Plucky decides to confess what he did to the next person he sees. Unfortunately, that next person is Egghead Jr..
  • We Are Not Going Through That Again: When Plucky retakes the test, he launches his two shoulder devils out of the way so that he doesn't have to listen to them, and decides to retake the test the honest way, regardless of how good a grade he'll get.

Open and Shut Case:

  • Beware the Nice Ones: You do not want to make Hamton miss lunch.
  • High-Pressure Emotion: Hamton's face turns into a steam whistle when the ACME Wonder Locker refuses to give him his lunch.
  • The Key Is Behind the Lock: A variation. Hamton accidentally locks his manual inside the locker, leaving him unable to figure out the correct combination code.
  • Stock "Yuck!": The ACME Wonder Locker becomes disgusted when he hears that Hamton was trying to get olive loaf out of him.
  • Vengeful Vending Machine: Hamton's ACME Wonder Locker takes the place of such.

C Flat or B Sharp?

  • Absentee Actor: In the opening wraparound for this short, Babs claims that she isn't in the episode. And aside from a brief cameo where she and several other students peek out of several classroom doors as Buster, Plucky, and Hamton chase after the piano (which could have been a fluke depending how you look at it), she doesn't.
  • Fun with Flushing: Buster's plan to get the piano down from the clock tower is to fill the clock tower with water and drill a hole in it to drain the water and lower the piano. It surprisingly works.
  • Hydrant Geyser: Done with a water fountain Elmyra tries to take a drink from.
  • Musical Episode: This short is set to Franz Liszt's "Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2”, which has been used in many different cartoons, notably "Rhapsody Rabbit," "The Cat Concerto" and "Rhapsody in Rivets" and the Dueling Ducks scene in Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
  • No-Dialogue Episode: The only dialogue in this episode is from Yosemite Sam at the beginning of the short, as well as Hamton when he tries to protest.
  • Piano Drop: The piano falls on Yosemite Sam at the end of the short.
  • Smelly Skunk: Fifi La Fume, who interferes with Buster, Plucky, and Hamton trying to get the piano to the recital hall.
  • Squashed Flat: Happens a good number of times to Buster, Plucky, and Hamton when the piano runs over them or smashes them into a wall.
