Added DiffLines:

** Kim and Madison are pretty close for being just friends...


Added DiffLines:

* SiblingYinYang: Kim is fun-loving and modern, while Kam is serious and old-fashioned.
* StylisticSuck: The "Banana Zoo" video takes a few visual cues from older cartoons.


Added DiffLines:

* TrueCompanions: The kids and Sunny.


Added DiffLines:

* VagueAge: Averted for the main seven kids, who are all in the 12-13 range. Played straight for the adult characters.


Added DiffLines:

* VocalEvolution:
** Kam's voice in the earlier episodes is less raspy and slightly higher, as opposed to the lower, slightly raspy one in later episodes.
** Philly Phil's voice in the earliest episodes is higher and faster, and has a slight Philadelphia accent to it. Late Season 1 nixes his accent, in addition to being a borderline SimpletonVoice. Season 2 goes for a compromise between the two.

* DeliberatelyMonochrome: "Richer Shade of Blue" is done entirely in all blue.



* TheMillenniumAgeOfAnimation



* OlderThanTheyLook: Aside from Philly Phil, who does look like an actual (if tall) 13-year-old, none of the kids look old enough to be attending middle school.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Eddie and Philly Phil's full names, Edward and Phillip, respectively, are almost never used. Possibly the case with Kim and Kam, too.
* OnlyChildSyndrome: Every kid except the twins Kim and Kam is implied to be an only child. Likely confirmed with Eddie.



* PinkGirlBlueBoy: Kim is associated with pink, while her twin brother Kam is associated with blue.



** GettingCrapPastTheRadar: They even dress in [[PuttingOnTheReich black-and-red, Third Reich-inspired uniforms.]]


Added DiffLines:

* SchizoTech: Despite the show being set in "the year two thousand-something" according to Li'l D, old-school bells are still used at Westley, and everyone still uses 90's-style technology.


Added DiffLines:

* ShipTease:
** Although it was known that Eddie liked Tamika from the start, the ChristmasEpisode hints that the reverse may also be true.
** Although Kim did express distaste at being paired with Philly Phil in "Nothin To It But To Do It", "Take a Hike!" implies that she may have started to like him.
** Sunny and Leela Lopez kiss in the {{Stinger}} of "Two to Tango." That entire episode pretty much provides shipping material, including an actual breakup.

Added DiffLines:

** From "Peanuts! Get Yer Peanuts!" up to "The Devil and Li'l D", Eddie does not hit on Tamika even once, despite doing so in the pilot. They become a regular occurrence from "Brotha From the Third Rock" on.


Added DiffLines:

* IdeaBulb: When Li'l D gets the idea to show the other kids where Sunny supposedly lives, one of these appears. It's revealed to be an actual lightbulb.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Leitmotif}}: Most characters, when they need to be showcased, have their associated instrument playing in the background.
* TheLoad: [[AvertedTrope Averted.]] None of the kids are presented as being this.


Added DiffLines:

* MusclesAreMeaningless: Sunny, Tamika, and to a lesser extent Philly Phil, are typically shown as fairly strong despite not having visual muscles. Tamika might have some though.


Added DiffLines:

* NiceMeanAndInBetween: Madison, Tamika, and Kim, respectively. Downplayed in Tamika's case, as she's merely a JerkWithAHeartOfGold.


Added DiffLines:

* NotAllowedToGrowUp: Although the kids are all but stated to be in the 12-13 age range and Eddie's birthday is celebrated in one episode, they consistently still look young, even when they're implied to be a bit older in the ChristmasEpisode.

The show follows Sunny Bridges (voiced by Andre 3000 himself), a world famous jazz and blues superstar. However, he has become disillusioned with celebrity life, ultimately resulting in him quitting a concert in Japan. He plans to retire, moving back to his hometown of [[UsefulNotes/{{Atlanta}} Atlanta, Georgia]] which the local Westley School of Performing Arts is having its own troubles with the threat of shutting down its music program. [[TheLeader Lil D]], a self proclaimed number one fan of Sunny's, discovers him back in town and, through some persistence, manages to re-ignite Sunny's love for music. Meeting the rest of Lil D's friends which make up the music class ([[TheDitz Madison]], [[TheBigGuy Tamika]], [[LonelyRichKid Eddie]], [[GadgeteerGenius Philly Phil]], [[OnlySaneMan Kim]], and [[ButtMonkey Kam]]), Sunny agrees to teach them on the condition they keep the job fun for him.

Added DiffLines:

* DerangedAnimation: At its worst. The "We Want Your Soul" video sticks out.


Added DiffLines:

* DreadfulMusician: Li'l D in regards to playing the fiddle.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Excluding the animation quality...
** Every song up until the Season 1 finale had vocals.
** Most of Season 1 lacked the extra animations in the credits from Season 2.
** Philly Phil in the pilot was actually somewhat of a wiseass.
