* ExtremeOmniGoat: The story ''The Case of the Dancing Cowboy'' (which was originally serialized in newspapers and later released via audio, but not in a printed form) has Drover mentioning how he once knew a goat who "ate tin cans and ketchup bottles''. (And rose bushes.) Hank doesn't believe a word of it.

* CluckingFunny: Chickens are described by Hank as being so dumb that they only have six words in their own language, three of which are just different cries for help. J.T. Cluck, the head rooster, is shown speaking fluently on other occasions, so he may be [[YogiBear smarter than your average hen]].

* GuileHero: Hank likes to think he's this, but more often than not his schemes blow up in his face. He has his moments though, such as in "''Murder in the Middle Pasture''" when he escaped a nasty situation involving a Gang of stray dogs and the Coyotes by goading them into fighting each other.
