* ShownTheirWork: Scarry was rather fond of drawing vehicles, be they cars, boats, or aircraft. Many of the vehicles that appear in his illustrations (the ones that aren't obviously imaginary, that is) are real types, often obscure ones like the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hughes_XH-17 Hughes XH-17]] and the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volkswagen_Schwimmwagen Volkswagen Schwimmwagen]].



* FurryConfusion: Let's just say it's inevitable.

* ADayInTheLimelight: The first and third segments of the show focused on Huckle and his family (Lowly included). Sometimes, these segments would feature one of the other Busytown characters like Bananas Gorilla, Sergeant Murphy, Pig Will and Pig Won't, etc.



* AscendedExtra: Huckle's sister Sally has a bigger role in the series and even becomes a main character along with her brother.

**
Huckle's sister Sally has a bigger role in the series and even becomes a main character along with her brother.


Added DiffLines:

** Inverted with Hilda Hippo. She only sometimes joins Huckle and friends on their mystery solving, relegated more to a SixthRanger role in contrast to the Busy World series.


Added DiffLines:

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Bananas Gorilla is absent in this series unlike his prominence in the Busy World and direct-to-video series.

* [[UnnamedParent Unnamed Parents]]: Huckle and Sally's, who are only ever called Mom / Mother, Dad / Father, or Mr. and Mrs. Cat.

to:

* ThereWasADoor: Happens in ''What Do People Do All Day?'' when Smokey the firefighter chops open the door to the playroom of Huckle's burning house to save Huckle from a fire; Lowly lampshades this later by asking Smokey why he didn't just open the door instead.
* [[UnnamedParent Unnamed Parents]]: Huckle and Sally's, who are only ever called Mom / Mother, Dad / Father, or Mr. and Mrs. Cat. Averted in the Busy World animated series where they are named John and Fiona.

* FurryConfusion: All over the freakin' place. Most of the characters are {{Funny Animal}}s; however, there are non-anthropomorphic animals that are kept at farms, zoos or circuses. So Farmer Pig and Farmer Goat can keep pigs and goats at their farm, and when Hilda Hippo, Bananas Gorilla or Miss Honey visit the zoo, they'll see realistic hippos, gorillas and bears there. The most confusing one is on the circus picture in ''Best Word Book Ever'': a non-anthropomorphic horse, lion, seal and an elephant balancing on one leg while ''wearing a tutu'' are surrounded by an anthropomorphic, fully-clothed tiger ringmaster and bear acrobats. If the elephant stood slighly more upright and had more hand-like front legs, she'd pass as a person in this setting.
