* {{Adult Fear}}: Whenever Pumuckl is in trouble. For example, in one TV episode, he gets sick to his stomach after drinking a bottle of medicine. His histrionics are quite funny - until Eder walks in, picks up the little guy in one hand, and completely panics at not knowing what to do.

* {{Cats Are Mean}}: Pumuckl hates and fears them, probably because he is small enough to be their ideal prey. For Eder, though, {{Everythings Cuter With Kittens}}, which makes for trouble when he takes one in out of the street in episode 21.
* {{Celibate Hero}}: Eder has zero interest in romance, probably due to his age.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Some people think Eder was this, when he talks with / about his Kobold. Of course, in this case TheCloudcuckoolanderWasRight.

* {{Friend To All Children}}: Pumuckl sympathizes with children, being much like one himself, while they are naturally more likely to believe in him (and enjoy his pranks) than adults are.
* GermanDialects: There are translations into Swiss German and Rhenish German. In the latter, Pumuckl is renamed Fizzibitz.
* {{Get Out}}: In episode 16, Eder evicts Pumuckl for stealing a customer's bracelet and then lying about it. Pumuckl leaves the house in tears and chooses Bernbacher as his new "target", but in the end, they miss each other too much to hold a grudge.

''Pumuckl'' is a German children's series, as well as the name of its kobold protagonist. Started as a radio series in 1961, and in the following decades, it got a book series, 33 records (for kids: what people had before [=CDs=]), three movies, three TV series, a kids magazine... and even a musical. It's about the kobold [a kind of mischievous brownie] Pumuckl, who lives in the workshop of Eder, an old joiner.
