Misuse.
* WhyDoYouKeepChangingJobs: Gwen, who in the first season of the full-version series, is seen in a variety of different jobs because she believes in her aunt's saying that "You never know what you can do until you try out something new." One of these jobs is even helping SantaClaus, riding on his sleigh.

* TruckDriversGearChange: In "Feeling Grove-y" from the "The Sprites Sleep Over," the Sprites sing about how the couldn't possibly get to sleep unless they're back in Grotto's Grove, culminating with "Oh, how I wish I was there now... (''going up a key'') right now!", leading Johnny (who already wishes the Sprites would just ''go to sleep'') to lament, "Oh no, not a key change!"

* KidsPreferBoxes: "A Very Spritely Holiday" has a variation on this. When the Sprites, who aren't familiar with the Christmas gift-giving tradition, see Johnny and Gwen exchanging fancily decorated gift boxes, they decide they want to participate too. They make a very fancy box for Johnny... with nothing inside. They didn't know there was supposed to be anything inside, they thought the ''entire point'' was giving the fancy box. Of course, Johnny is happy to get their gift, since, as any show like this will tell you, the point is the act of giving and the love and appreciation that was shown. -->'''Sprites''': Brightly shining, shining brightly, leaves and flowers everywhere / Sprites must give a gift that's spritely / One that shows how much we care.

* AwardBaitSong: The songs were all written by composers from Broadway shows, many of them Tony award-winning, but "Brightly Shining" stands out as this. It was going to be part of the stage show ''Magical Holiday'', but that was canceled and rescheduled as a more general non-holiday-themed stage show.

Oh, and like the show's theme song, it was written by Creator/StephenSchwartz. (''Theatre/{{Pippin}}'', ''Theatre/{{Wicked}}'')

The series began as a set of five animated shorts aired every so often DisneyChannel's Playhouse Disney block. These segments proved so popular that the program was greenlit for a full series. The new series brought a greatly expanded set portraying the Sprites' home of Grotto's Grove, as well as new characters. Three new Sprites were added, Water Sprite Lily, Earth Sprite Root and a wise old Sprite named Sage, puppeteered and voiced by Tartaglia. Additionally, a character named Gwen, portrayed by Natalie Venetia Belcon, was brought on as a friend for Johnny who paid semi-regular visits. The second season of the full series saw a further expansion to the set, as well as a seminal change to the program when Gwen was allowed to finally meet the Sprites for the first time and both she and Johnny gained the ability to visit Grotto's Grove. The presumed final episode of the series was aired on April 19, 2008 and the program disappeared from U.S. airwaves, though both a music album and DVD were released. Repeats of the program began airing on the 24/7 Disney Junior network in 2012. Tartaglia has since moved on to other projects, such as the musicals of ''Theatre/BeautyAndTheBeast'' and ''{{Shrek}}''.

* AreWeThereYet: In "Waiting for the Stars," one of the original shorts, Johnny sings ''A trip can seem a whole lot longer / If the moment you begin it / You're asking "are we there yet?" every other minute.'' Ginger then comments "I hate that!"

My Name Is Not Durwood has been split. Bad examples and those not fitting other tropes are being removed.
* ReTool: The second season of the full series featured something of a retool, with the following upgrades: Gwen met the Sprites and became one of their friends (it had always felt a bit odd that they had to hide from her when she was Johnny's friend anyway), the Sprites could pop from place to place in a manner similar to the apparition of ''Franchise/HarryPotter'', and Sage became more active & smart, and stopped [[MyNameIsNotDurwood referring to the other Sprites by incorrect names.]]
