* BigStormEpisode: ''The Rats are Coming!''



* NeverSayDie: Played straight most of the time, but averted at least once each in ''Here Come the Littles'' and ''Liberty and the Littles'', and on occasion in some other episodes (Dinky saying "I think my nose just died and went to heaven!" in ''Prescription for Disaster''.)

* ThemeTuneRollCall: The first-season opening sequence has all the main characters' names spoken, but not as part of the theme song lyrics (basically an extended version of the closing credits theme), but through dialogue within the characters.



* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield?: Grand Valley's location is never revealed. It seems to be a suburb of the Big City seen and mentioned in a few episodes.

* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: A one-sided example - no matter how annoyed Grandpa gets with Dinky, he's always the first to try to help him if he gets into trouble, and in "The Little Girl Who Could", he's so revealed to see that Dinky is OK that [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming he willingly gives him a big hug]].

* EditedForSyndication: Reruns of The Littles on the DiC Kids Network syndication package often had the credits cutting off Dinky [[LogoJoke dotting the I in the DiC logo]] by slowing down the video footage but not the audio, thus making the sound affects not match the animation. There were also episodes that had long scenes cut, and they all cut the "Little Ideas for Big People"/"A Little Known Fact" segments. Also of note were a handful of episodes that were not reran for one reason or another in various markets including "Prescription for Disaster", which also never aired on ToonDisney.
** Also a scene from "The Little Scouts" was cut in the ToonDisney airing. The scene features Dinky looking at a flare up close and accidentally causing it to go off carrying him into the air and he falls back down on the pilot's parachute. The scene is intact on the DVD release.



** Tom and Lucy in "A Big Cure For a Little Illness", when they cause Helen to get poisoned by Dr. Hunter's chemical (they were playing somewhere they shouldn't have been, and she came to tell them to get out).



* TheyJustDidntCare: Sound effects not matching animation, voice actor's lines over other voice actor's lines, most likely all because of rushed production. Very noticeable in the first episode of the series.

* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Dinky in "A Little Drunk", when he thinks that he killed Grandpa Little with his drunk-driving (luckily, he just broke Grandpa's walking stick).
