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]]"

** 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]].
