* {{Determinator}}: Snail is tasked by Frog with delivering a letter to Toad. What with Snail being, well, ''a snail'', this simple task takes him [[RunningGag three songs]] and ''the better part of a year'', but he never, ever, ''ever'' gives up.

* AllJustADream: Hinted at during Frog and Toad's second shared dream, when they recall episodes from the show as being other dreams they've had. However, a more likely explanation is that in their hibernation state, Frog and Toad tend to get dreams and reality confused.

''A Year With Frog and Toad'' is a children's musical, based on the ''Literature/FrogAndToad'' book series for young readers by Arnold Lobel. Both the series and the musical revolve around [[HeterosexualLifePartners two best friends]] named Frog and Toad, who spend their time together drinking tea, taking walks, baking cookies, going swimming, and generally being best friends.

Frog is the more cheerful and upbeat of the two friends, whereas Toad is generally grumpy and very easily discouraged. Their adventures are accompanied by several other forest creatures (usually played by the [[ActingForTwo same three actors]]).
