* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: In the ''If You Give a Mouse a Christmas Cookie'' animated special, Mouse and his friends accidentally wreck the decorations for a play that Mouse's boy, Oliver, has a big role in. Later, when Pig encounters Oliver, wondering where he can find Mouse, she tells him that Mouse is getting a haircut so that he'll look good when he sees him in the theater, which definitely hasn't had anything bad happen to it.

* MooseAreIdiots: ''If You Give a Moose a Muffin'' has a moose who is this. In the animated series, he doesn't really see all that dumb, but still has the typical stupid-sounding voice associated with a dumb moose.

* CatchPhrase: The AnimatedAdaptation on Amazon has "What do you think will happen next?" It's usually said by Oliver, the boy with the mouse, though occasionally by one of the other human characters that's a companion to one of the animals. It's present in theme song as well. At the end of each story, one of the characters will say "If you (''give something to / do something with an animal'') what do you think will happen next?", making it a SigningOffCatchphrase as well. Also, see HereWeGoAgain below.

In 2015, a cartoon based on the original book was released by Creator/AmazonStudios. It was written, developed and executive produced by Ken Scarborough, known for ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/{{Doug}}''. The cartoon features the boy (now [[NamedByTheAdaptation named Oliver]] instead of being nameless) and mouse from the original picture book, with the cast rounded out by the animals from the other books, such as the pig, the moose, the cat and the dog. Originally only two specials were produced, but in September 2017, Amazon [[http://deadline.com/2017/09/amazon-prime-kids-slate-sigmund-sea-monster-1202163232/ announced]] an actual television series, which premiered on November 7, 2017. The author and illustrator of the original books are both executive producers on the show.

* TrademarkFavoriteFood: While the books were all about each particular animal being given a particular type of treat, this is only carried for Mouse in the AnimatedAdaptation on Amazon, in which he is still very big on cookies, particularly chocolate chip. Though in the show, he doesn't seem to require milk, though he does like to have it with the cookie if it's around. He's even something of an advocate for cookies. In the story "Sick Day," in which all of the other animal characters get a cold, he invents a whistling system for them - one whistle for a glass of water, two whistles for hot soup and three if they want a cookie. They all say they're too sick to want a cookie, but he says they never know.
