* HomeVersionSoundtrackReplacement: When the series was released on VHS, some licensed music was changed.
** For example, in Episode 1, the radio in the lorry that the Nomes stow away on to go to Arnold Bros. Est 1905 plays "2-4-6-8 Motorway" by the Tom Robinson Band. This was changed in the VHS release to generic rock music.
** Another example is that in Episode 27, the speakers in the Concorde plane that Masklin, Angalo and Gurder stow away on to go to Florida play "Come Fly with Me" by Frank Sinatra. On the VHS release, this was changed to generic muzak.
* InMemoriam: Episode 13 was dedicated to the memory of Paul Simpson, who was a model, set and prop maker for ''WesternAnimation/{{The Wind in the Willows|1983}}'', ''WesternAnimation/NoddysToylandAdventures'', ''Literature/TheFoolOfTheWorldAndHisFlyingShip'' and the series itself.
* NoAnimalsWereHarmed: In Episode 33, Masklin, Angalo and Gurder use geese to fly to the space shuttle. For close-up shots, models of geese were used, but for long distance shots, the production team used real geese. This disclaimer had to be added onto the credits of the episode as a result.



** In the sequence where the Nomes are searching for the bottle of 'Drink Me' (in itself a shout out to ''Literature/AliceInWonderland''), we get a brief glimpse of some ''WesternAnimation/DangerMouse'' VHS tapes, with the old Video Collection International and Thames Video logos visible. Shortly afterwards, a Nome turns on a television showing clips from both ''Danger Mouse'' and Cosgrove Hall's version of ''Literature/TheWindInTheWillows''.
** At one point, as in the book, Masklin delivers the line, "It's a small step for a man, but it's a giant leap for Nomekind."

Added DiffLines:

* RealityEnsues: After the Nomes escape the store to go on living in the quarry at the end of the first book, the second and third book show that living outside is easier said than done for people used to the controlled environment and plentiful food of the store, and even the rations brought along run out -- and the new places aren't safe from being demolished by the humans either.

* FrogsAndToads: In ''Wings'', a certain species of tiny frogs that only live in the water-filled interiors of Bromeliad flowers is mentioned several times. Grimma, in particular, sees them as such an obvious metaphor in regards the Nomes themselves that one of the last things The Ship does before leaving Earth is to stop and harvest a frog-filled flower. The series is even sometimes referred to as the Bromeliad Trilogy.

* {{Masquerade}}: Nomes have concluded that dealings with humanity are too risky, and put a fair amount of effort into remaining hidden.



* WainscotSociety: A fairly literal instance, especially with the store nomes, who live in the walls and under the floors of a human building.

to:

* {{Lilliputians}}
{{Lilliputians}}: The big point about the nomes.
* MouseWorldMouseWorld: The nomes are small, although big enough to keep rats as (relatively large) pets.



* TheOutsideWorld: Initially, Masklin has to venture beyond his original home, and force his family to come with him; later, he has to make all the store nomes first leave the store, and then go much further.

* ScavengedPunkScavengedPunk: Smarter nomes are very inventive with fragments of human junk.
