* BigEater: There's a reason Pamie Penguin and Roobear's Papa are the subjects of the series' {{Diet Episode}}s.
** When Pamie's ploy to arrange a picnic with Roobear in "Pamie Falls in Love" falls apart, she eats the entire picnic herself.
** Papa Koala routinely eats three or four helpings of whatever eucalyptus dish Mommy Koala has prepared. In "The Mysterious Moa Bird", Mommy laments that surely eating four helpings of eucalyptus cake can't be good for him.

* ContinuityNod: Although the episodes can mostly be watched in any order (aside from those which clearly introduce minor characters, as "Monster Scoop" does for Miss Lewis' excitable assistant Maki-Maki and "Save That Junk" does for Bill the junk-collecting platypus), a few episodes contain references to other episodes.

* CosmeticCatastrophe: Writing a story for the children's newspaper, Nick recounts a scolding Pamie recently received in which their mother told her to act more grown-up. Pamie apparently took this to mean she should look the part, so she got into her mother's makeup and ended up getting scolded a second time.

** In the Arabic dub, Roobear/Kokki's given name is actually "Koala."


Added DiffLines:

** When "Laura Finds an Egg," she wants to keep the creature that hatches from the egg and raise it herself, and isn't at all disappointed or dissuaded when said creature turns out to be a turtle instead of a beautiful golden bird as she had dreamed. She's devastated when she is told she'll have to let the baby turtle go into the ocean, but tearfully complies. Weather and Roobear console her by pointing out that since baby turtles head for the sea as soon as they are hatched and never meet their birth mother, Laura really ''was'', in essence, the baby turtle's mother, and that her turtle was the luckiest in the brood, because unlike the other baby turtles, Laura's turtle got to meet its mother.

** Walter also loves Betty, but is [[CannotSpitItOut too shy to tell her;]] he comes close to telling her in "Any Mail Today?" until Betty tells him the love letter he thinks he had received from her was actually addressed to Roobear.
* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: At the end of "A Ride in a Spaceship", when the three koalas, two rabbits, and two penguins wake up on the hillside where they supposedly first encountered the friendly extraterrestrial Cosmo, they wonder if they simply dreamt their space adventure, until Floppy notices his headphones are missing, apparently exchanged for the Key of Friendship. However, the key Roobear produces for a sceptical Walter and his brothers looks like an ordinary rusty key rather than the golden artifact we saw Cosmo give him earlier in the episode. And yet holding the key does make Walter more amiable toward the others, and in the episode's final shot, as Roobear holds the key aloft, it transforms back into its golden version.

Roobear. For her part, Betty doesn't hesitate to let Walter know she can't stand him.

* EggMacGuffin: The episode "Laura Finds an Egg" had Laura Koala finding an egg while playing baseball. The egg turns out to be that of a sea turtle and Laura chooses to set the turtle free rather than keep it. Of course, when you consider the fact that [[FridgeHorror few baby sea turtles grow up to be adults]]...
