* ClingyJealousGirl: Joy/Azusa seems to have budding feelings for Chris/Joy, which she doesn't try to hide all that well, even telling him outright in one episode that she expects him to marry her when they grow up. Thus she gets mad when Chris doesn't seem to reciprocate and shows signs of jealousy whenever Chris looks upon beautiful women like Eve and Queen of Sheba. (In reply to Chris's comment that Sheba is the most beautiful woman he's ever seen, Joy huffs, "I thought you liked blondes!" Of course, Joy herself is blonde.)

* ClingyJealousGirl: Joy shows signs of jealousy whenever Chris looks upon beautiful women like Eve and Queen of Sheba. In addition, in the Queen Esther episode, Joy got all huffy when she learned that Chris was thinking of voting for another girl in their school's beauty contest (only the promise of Joy's home-baked cookies got Chris to change his mind).

* XMeetsY: ''Anime/TimeBokan'' in [[Literature/TheBible The Old Testament]]
** Which is fitting as both ''Superbook'' and ''Time Bokan'' were animated by the same company (Creator/TatsunokoProduction).

* AlternativeForeignThemeSong: The Japanese version has an [[http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xjtoqi_yyyyyyy-op-ed_music#.UTPr01dv4SY opening and ending theme]] different from the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eRSEUKLkJcU English opening.]] For series one, the Japanese opening song was adapted for the English version as the closing.

Most other foreign language versions were adapted from the English dub and use either the English language themes or adaptations thereof, an exception being the Italian dub, which has a completely original song (and keeps the Japanese opening and closing animation).

** In the German version his name is actually Christian.Christian, and Azusa/Joy is known as Maria, or Ri for short, which seems fairly obviously a reference to the Mother of Christ.


Added DiffLines:

* PinkGirlBlueBoy: Azusa/Joy wears a pink shirt, and Sho/Christopher wears a blue jacket and blue jeans. The show's character designer, Akiko Shimomoto, was apparently fond of this trope as she used it in several other Tatsunoko series.

''Super Book,'' or ''Anime Oyako Gekijō'' ("Animated Parent and Child Theater") in the original Japanese, was a Japanese-American tag-team effort to try to show stories from the Old and New Testament of [[Literature/TheBible the Judeo-Christian Bible]] to Japanese children. Released from 1981 to 1983. Originally, it was for Japan only (no one thought anime was marketable in the West back then), but a positive response at a French convention led to an English dub in the United States of America and dubs in many other languages, becoming perhaps (due to its use as an evangelistic tool) one of the most widely distributed Japanese animated series ever, even if it isn't generally thought of as "anime" despite its origins.

In 2013, a computer-animated reboot of the series was produced. The remake is notable for being the first animated series to air on Creator/ABCFamily (who aired the original back when they were known as CBN Cable in the early 80's) since around 2005. Meanwhile, the original series can still be found on the Christian kids' channel Smile Of A Child (but in the wee morning hours - better prepare your DVR![[note]]Only if you live in parts of the US and have AT&T U-Verse TV.[[/note]]).

* ClockworkCreature: Gizmo is a robot version of this, as when he runs down on power he explicitely needs the key on his back wound back up for him to even move again (he can still talk just fine).
