* YouLookFamiliar: Several instances throughout Sullivan's ''Avonlea'' universe: Mag Ruffman, Cedric Smith, and Jackie Burroughs all had small roles in the mini-series before playing the King siblings. Rosemary Dunsmore had a large role, as Katherine Brooke, in the sequel, before getting a guest role as Aunt Abigail. James O'Reagan also had a small scene in the sequel, before appearing as Abner Jeffries a number of times.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Last we saw of Gus's mother was that she left on a ship; we find out later that the ship sank with three survivors. Two are accounted for, so was she the third? If so where is she? And is Captain Crane Gus's father?

* YeGoodeOldeDays: A mild example. Negative aspects of life at the time, such as child labor, disenfranchisement of women, TB, or death in childbirth ''are'' shown, but more emphasis is put on the good times that the characters have.

The stories are loosely based on Creator/LMMontgomery's novels ''Literature/TheStoryGirl'' and ''The Golden Road'' (Sara is the eponymous Story Girl), with side-plots culled from Montgomery's massive short story collections, most of which had nothing to do with the Anne of Green Gables series.

* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: Felicity's fiancé, Stuart, leaves when Felicity returns with Gus because he knows she truly loves Gus. {{YMMV}} on this one. Stuart does not leave Avonlea until after Felicity returns the ring saying "I accepted your proposal in good faith, Stuart. Finding Gus changed everything. You must know that." Earlier in the episode Stuart actually tells Gus to leave Avonlea, despite Gus effectively also being engaged to Felicity ({{It Makes sense in Context}}) and clearly in need of help from the Kings, the only family he has. ''Gus'' actually does this more for Felicity and Stuart ("She's better off with Stuart McCray"), fortunately no one listens.
