* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: In ''Junior[=/=]Ages 4-6'', Blasternaut hosts a whack-a-mole style game where your mouse turns into a mallet that you use to whack creatures called Pesters that have stolen the treasure of the planet Countalonia. You're meant to whack the Pesters, obviously, but you can smack Blasternaut himself with the mallet as well.

* FailedASpotCheck: The plot for ''In Search Of Spot'' is kicked off by Blasternaut dismissing Spot's suggestion that their ship is out of fuel, which is confirmed by the fuel gauge in the console just to Blasternaut's left. ''Ages 9-12'' has the Blasterpals miss an alert that they're about to crash into a planet because they're partying.



* FloatingPlatforms: Pretty ubiquitous.
** ''Math Blaster Ages 9-12'' also has platforms that double as hazards.

%%If you want to talk about the 1999-2005 era, please DO NOT complain about how it "ruined" the games you played as a kid. Most of the pages for other edutainment game series like JumpStart, Reader Rabbit and The Cluefinders don't complain about the new versions they received. See ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontLike

* {{Expy}}: Gelator is a yellow alien with three eyes that abducts Spot... exactly like the Trash Alien. In fact, Gelator's game, ''Ages 9-12'', is a rehash of the entire premise of ''In Search of Spot''.

True to being both educating and entertaining, the Blaster series centered on an astronaut called Blasternaut (get it?) and his RobotBuddy Spot, a little blue droid. They worked for the Galactic Commander, who herself helped to run a [[TheFederation federation-like]] organization that spanned the galaxy to apprehend criminals. Eventually Galactic Commander (or GC, as the others called her) joined the team. Their images changed rapidly - for example, Spot eventually became a robotic dog named MEL while G.C. became a 12 year old girl instead of a female adult and Blaster became a 12 year old boy instead of a green astronaut-like man. This last version of the characters was featured in the SaturdayMorningCartoon series ''WesternAnimation/BlastersUniverse'', produced by {{Nelvana}} in 1999.

* AndImTheQueenOfSheba: From ''Math Blaster Ages 9-12'', after it's revealed that the Terrible Monkey King isn't so terrible:
-->'''GC:''' Who are you?\\
'''Monkey:''' Well... I'm, uh... I'm the Terrible Monkey King.\\

Please do not confuse with ''VideoGame/LearningVoyage'', which is another EdutainmentGame series Davidson worked on that features alien creatures and a pet robot; the similarities end there.
