* ThanksgivingEpisode: In "Turkey of Terror", The Mayor invites the Action League to his mansion for Thanksgiving dinner to form a truce. Stinky doesn't believe The Mayor has gone good and quits the Action League, and decides to spend Thanksgiving with his own family, who argue with each other when they found out Stinky quit his job. [[spoiler:It later turns out that Stinky was right about The Mayor when Justice witnesses the event and brings him his badge, and Stinky decides to save the rest of the League from being cooked in The Mayor's turkey.]]

Our heroes were The Flesh (a ''Series/ConanTheAdventurer'' doll modified to replace his hips/loincloth with a Ken type bulge who was described as "super-strong and super-naked"), Thunder Girl (a superheroine with a [[=Sindy=]] doll head who just flew around and complained about how stupid her teammates were, even though she could be just as clueless as the others), Stinky Diver (a loose cannon with a thick British accent and perpetual body odor, and is made from a GIJoe Shipwreck action figure) and Melt-Man (a not-too-bright melted {{GI Joe}}-like figurine "with the power to... ''melt!''"). They tended to suffer horrible injuries. They were accompanied by The Chief, who would often shout "BLAST IT!" and berate the team for their screw-ups; Justice the Dog, and Bill the Lab Guy, who spoke in monotone, and often made strange inventions and devices to help the League, though these would often be stolen or otherwise used to harm the League.

* AnimationBump: Rock-a-Big Baby (the theatrical short that played in front of ''Film/GoodBurger'') had considerably more stop motion animated scenes than the rest of the series.

* FlowersForAlgernonSyndrome: The Flesh, in one episode. His hyperintelligence gets removed by a blow to the head from one of Smarty Pants's chess pieces [[spoiler: The Flesh wins the chess game anyway.]] Subverted in that the rest of the league is thankful to have the old Flesh back... and promptly reconsider that when he drops a pile of books on them again.

* ComicallyMissingThePoint: In one episode, Stinky Diver was feeling down. He told the League how his mother betrayed him some years ago, resulting him getting his signature odor.
-->'''Meltman:''' So that's why he stinks. ''(the League look at him)'' What?

* AntiVillain: Hodge Podge. Can't blame a guy for wanting to destroy the League (especially Bill the Lab Guy) when they basically ruined his life.

Added DiffLines:

* ScantronPicture: In "The Naked and The Dumb", The Flesh gets kicked out of the League because he failed a first grade equivalency test after coloring the dots in the shape of a kitten. The episode ends with him retaking the test and passing, because he colored the dots in the shape of a dog instead.

* BlessedWithSuck: Meltman. He has the power to... melt. And that's about it. It doesn't help that he's treated as a ButtMonkey by the rest of the cast.

* BlessedWithSuck: Meltman. He has the power to... melt. And that's about it. It doesn't help that he's treated as a ButtMonkey by the rest of the cast. In fact it's even worse because he never uses this ability in the show except in the intro where he's being melted by a magnifying glass, so it's entirely possible he can't even consciously ''start melting himself'', he has to have others do it for him.

Originally a segment on {{Nickelodeon}}'s live-action TV series ''Series/AllThat'' and then on its AnimatedAnthology ''WesternAnimation/{{KaBlam}}!'', ''Action League NOW!'' centered on the crudely stop-motion-animated adventures of four superhero toys, who were forever going off on missions that were either ill-defined or just plain weird, and nearly always involved trying to stop the corrupt "The Mayor" in some zany scheme of his. What made it distinct was that the toys were all shown in their "natural state" of being 6 inches tall in a human world, seldom even moving on their own (unless being thrown or the like, which is why the show was sometimes described as being filmed in "Chuck-imation").

* ShooOutTheNewGuy: Bill the Lab Guy's teenage daughter, Quarky. Introduced in ''WesternAnimation/KaBlam's'' second season premier (if we're going by production order), and was in a bunch of episodes from that season. After "The Quarky Syndrome", she never appeared again.
