* SeriesContinuityError: Several. As mentioned above, it was inconsistent whether Jeff would supposedly become a mannequin permanently if he ever left the store, or if the magic hat just wouldn't work outside, and Jeff was repeatedly said to have never left the store even after episodes where he ''did'' temporarily leave thanks to magical loopholes. Whether Waldo the Magnificent could do wandless magic or needed his wand varied too, as did whether Muffy had ever gone to school or not, and in the four flashback episodes in Season 5, quite a few of the "memories" the characters described in the framing scenes were incorrect. Also, the events of "Live On Stage" were [[CanonDiscontinuity ignored]] in all subsequent episodes.



* ShipTease: There was a little bit between Jeff and Jodie, and a ''little'' bit between [[InterspeciesRomance Jeff and Muffy]], but given that the target audience really wouldn't be interested in such things it was never really mentioned.

* {{Slurpasaur}}: The "LIZARD" (supersized pet of one of the showrunners) encountered in the aforementioned Magical Land. Jeff has to pet it to proceed.

* VagueAge: Muffy. Her age is never stated, and it's hard to tell by looking. Since she lives on her own, it's possible she's an adult, but she certainly acts like a mischievous child.

* AnnoyingPatient: Muffy becomes this in the episode "Help!" after she sprains her toe.



* ManChild: Jeff, in a good way. Having been brought directly to adult life from an existence as a mannequin, he shows wonder at the simple things he learns about the world. Sam has his moments; not only does he have a playful side, but he is also seen being taught concepts (by Jody or another adult) that are obviously meant for the young viewers of the show to learn, and even wondering at them. One explanation may be that with age setting in, he has forgotten some things that he learned when he was younger and is experiencing the lessons as if they were new.

A [[UsefulNotes/{{Canada}} Canadian]] children's TV series that ran from 1982 to 1987 and was originally produced for [=TVOntario=]. It is best remembered in the U.S. for being one of the earliest staples of Creator/{{Nickelodeon}}'s lineup and at times, for being ''really'' freakin' weird.

* TheCastShowoff: Jeff Hyslop, who played Jeff the mannequin, is a triple threat entertainer. While he and everyone else sang on the show, he was the only one who danced, and did this on the show frequently. Nerene Virgin danced a little bit and was often paired with Jeff, but for anything more complicated they had to bring in outside talent to keep up with him. It should also be noted that Jeff Hyslop was also the show's choreographer.



* TheDanza: Jeff Hyslop as Jeff the mannequin.
