Added DiffLines:

* PajamaCladHero: Happens in "Kitten Kong", when the Goodies have to rush off in the middle of the night to find Twinkle. Only Graeme gets dressed before they leave, so Tim and Bill end up cycling around the city dressed, respectively, in red and white striped pyjamas and a white nightshirt.

* Bait And Switch: An example occurs in "Cecily", after Tim and the titular girl get very scared down in the cellar. After the mock advert break, we see Graeme, with only his head in the frame, reassuring someone, who we presume to be Cecily ... but when the camera pans backwards, we see that he's actually comforting a crying ''Tim''.

* LeftTheBackgroundMusicOn: Tim's habit of giving inspirational speeches to a background of patriotic music -- which he is seen starting up himself on a tape deck before beginning his speech.* LighthousePoint: The whole of "Lighthouse-Keeping Loonies", all because the advert said, "[[TheProblemWithPenIsland A little light housekeeping]]"

* ParodyCommercial: From the start of season 1 to the end of season 4, episodes were split into two parts, divided by parody commercials. They made a return in the season 6 episode "It Might As Well Be String", which was a parody of the advertisement industry in general.

** The recurring Beanz Meanz Heanz ads, which involve the boy (Tim) never managing to say his lines correctly, leading to the irritation and wrath of the director (Graeme).
** An advert for Plastic Spacemen, which come with a free cornflake.
** An advert for Butch Tobacco - the tobacco for [[StraightGay men]].

* InelegantBlubbering: Most of Tim's sobbing outbursts look like this, complete with tears and loud, hysterical sobs. In one case, he's crying so much that Bill has to wring his sodden handkerchief out into a bucket.

Added DiffLines:

* NotWhatItLooksLike: In 'Come Dancing', Graeme walks in on Tim and Bill in an awkward tangled embrace, with Tim screaming "Look, I am the woman!", and, naturally, gets the wrong idea. He mumbles an apology and makes to leave quickly, until Tim explains that they were trying to learn to dance (Tim was doing the woman's steps, and Bill the man's, but they quickly got very confused).


Added DiffLines:

*SickEpisode: Tim spends most of 'Lighthouse Keeping Loonies' sick with mumps.

Added DiffLines:

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: A lot of Tim and Bill's arguments sound like a couple having a row.
** In 'Earthanasia', Tim's belief in Santa and the way Graeme and Bill play along with it, complete with jingling sleigh bells, reminds you of the way parents play along with their children when they believe in Santa, and is actually rather sweet to see.

Added DiffLines:

* InescapablePrisoneasilyEscaped: In "Goodies in the Nick", the Goodies are sentenced to a long stretch in prison. Once they bother taking the blankets off their heads (which, admittedly does take several years) they almost immediately discover a means of escape, via a toilet that dumps them out through the wall.
