** Savio also functions as a jarring KnightOfCerebus for the series (around about the time DreamWorks Animation's other cartoon spinoffs got DarkerAndEdgier). ''Every'' antagonist prior had moments of [[LargeHam ham]] or [[LaughablyEvil silliness]] (even Dr Blowhole had silly moments, due to his love of EvilGloating and theatricality). Savio does not. He is also the only antagonist the penguins were never able to defeat by themselves and the only antagonist that was perfectly willing to kill (not defeat, not capture, ''kill'') the main cast.

* Kind of minor thing, but Kowalski's fear of the dentist at the end of "Needle Point" is actually somewhat rational--all zoo others are required to have oral checkups, so even though birds (penguins included) don't technically have teeth, they're still required to see a dentist once in a while.

* Why hasn't Blowhole troubles with eyepatch like Red Squirell? Because dolphins use echolocation, so lack of one eye doesn't bother him so much.

* Marlene's tendencies to go wild - when she is in the park for first time, she looks scared at first, when she realizes she really is not in zoo, before she go wild. And in "Littlefoot", when she [[spoiler: was deprived of her wild herself]], she was extremely fearful. Maybe going wild is her way to defeat fear. (But it cannot explain, why she does not remember anything about she was wild).

* Julien is surprisingly good when it comes to athletics, which stems from two things: 1.) Being a dancer all his life, and 2.) Always having to deal with the fossa back in Madagascar.
** Dancing ''does'' technically count as a sport.

* ''Hard Boiled Eggy''. Eggy defeats absolutely ''everyone'' in the zoo [[spoiler: ''but'' King Julien]]. Considering [[TykeBomb he is a combination of the four penguins' strengths]], it is obvious that he (and, likewise, the penguins) [[spoiler: would be unable to handle King Julien.]]

** Technically, dance is a sport
* In "Endangerous Species" Kowalski proudly holds up a rare atom and tells everybody there's only one in the known universe and he found it... in Rico's gut. You don't see Rico choke anything up for the rest of the episode. He fails to choke up a chainsaw at the expected time and only coughs up a feather, which hardly counts. In fact, when Kowalski asks if he's got another, he can't find another. Looks like that atom is ''Rico's'' power source. Presumably he gets it back in time for the next episode...
* I just realised that Rockgut and the Red Squirrel are a parody of the "Red Scare". Rockgut represents America's obsession during the second Red Scare about the infiltration of America by communist spies which is why he accuses everyone of being the Red Squirrel (Communist spy), the Red Squirrel represents Communism as itself. Rockgut's attitude is treated exactly like it would be treated today... as paranoid lunacy. The extreme patriotism Rockgut represents is regarded as risible and obsolete.

* The theme of the show delivering twisted morals continues in "The Big Squeeze". Instead of having the classic "Never judge a book by its cover" or "Never trust stereotypes", it says something more important; "Trust your instincts about people: if they look shifty, they probably are", as well as "There's a reason for stereotypes - there's often some truth behind them". "We know the penguins are paranoid; here's ''why''".
