  • Cargo Ship:
    • Pee Wee and Chairry. The firefighter and Magic Screen.
    • Magic Screens...ahem..."moment" with Conkey while the lights are off.
      Magic Screen:'s the flashlight.
      Conkey: M-m-magic Screen, th-thats not the flashlight! Th-th-that's not the flashlight!
      Magic Screen: Well, that's not my belly button either.
  • Heartwarming in Hindsight: The aforementioned gay marriage joke, after it became legal all over the United States.

  • Ear Worm: Invoked and discussed, including some of the more infamous examples from advertising ("Ch-ch-ch-Chia!")
  • Nightmare Fuel: Averted. There was concern that the "Ghost of Shamwow" might scare the kids in the audience, but it turned out that they loved that part the most.
  • What Do You Mean, It's Not for Kids?: Like the original stage show (and, to a lesser extent, the TV show that aired on CBS), this show was a children's show with a lot of risque humor and Parental Bonus moments.
