* BoringButPractical: In "Invent This", all of Tim Lockwood's "inventions" such as putting a peice of gum on a pencil so it'll sick behind the ear or shaking slat and pepper shakers a the same time.

Added DiffLines:

* AwesomeButImpractical: A lot of Flint's inventions such as the Chainsaw Washer, a dishwasher with chainsaws that spin on the outside, or the less lethal shower-chair.

* AlternativeForeignThemeSong: Shoko Nakagawa wrote [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1iQkbM6RPIk "Rainbow Forecast"]] as the Japanese ending theme, differing slightly from Miranda Cosgrove's "Raining Sunshine". If you picture the ending credits with this, the song actually fits pretty well.

* {{Retcon}}: Sam and Manny are, for some reason, students in Swallow Falls High School. In the first episode this is given a HandWave: Flint says that if Sam ever moves away from Swallow Falls, he will invent a memory eraser.

* CousinOliver: For whatever reason, the Mayor has a wimpy son that never had shown up in any of the movies.
* CounterfeitCash: Baby Brent's "Brent Bucks", just novelty cash with his face on it. The only place that accepts them as actual currency is the mayor's terrible "Shakespeare" plays.
* CutenessProximity: The town refuse to listen to Flint and Sam's statement that the panda the mayor had brought from another zoo is an alien because the panda is just too cute. The whole town soon falls under it's spell.



* FatBastard: Baby Brent, except even [[TookALevelInDumbass more stupid]] and [[TookALevelInJerkass callous]]. The Mayor also seems more portly, probably due to the art style, and is completely willing to abuse his authority for small-term gain or convenience.
* FatIdiot: Most of the time Baby Brent is stupid. ''Really'' stupid.



* {{Retcon}}: Sam and Manny are, for some reason, are students in Swallowfalls School.

to:

* PandaingToTheAudience: One episode has Sam confronting her fear of pandas and coming to the conclusion that pandas are aliens. [[spoiler: She's right.]]

* {{Flanderization}}: Flint is both completely obsessive and oblivious, Sam has a knack for inventing, Earl is ProperlyParanoid about Flints bungling, Brent is much more obnoxious and stupid and constantly wears a diaper, and Manny is [[BunnyEarsLawyer much more goofy (but no less competent]] and prone to smiling.

[[folder:The Show]]
* AmusingInjuries: Often. For example, in "Spoiler Orb" [[spoiler:Old Rick (an old bum)]] meets [[spoiler:his]] doom by drowning, being hit by lighting, and then battered by boats that drove right in the way.
* BabysittingEpisode: With ''"Baby" Brent'' of all people, just so Sam and Flint can make up the money for a board game they want in the episode "Baby Brent Sitter".
* DeanBitterman: Mayor Shelbourne is also the school principal, and he treats it the same way as being a mayor.
* EvilOldFolks: Hector Evilman, who's an "inventor" and Mayor Shelborne's father ("Evilman" is the mayor's grandmother's name).
* {{Flanderization}}: Flint is both completely obsessive and oblivious, Sam has a knack for inventing, Earl is ProperlyParanoid about Flints bungling, Brent is much more obnoxious and stupid and constantly wears a diaper, and Manny is [[BunnyEarsLawyer much more goofy (but no less competent]] and prone to smiling.
* GrumpyOldMan: "Old Rick", a crotchety old homeless man.
* HighSchoolAU: The show is about Flint's stories "before he made it rain meatballs", according to promos. It's an A.U. because both Sam and Manny are students at Cannery High School.
* IdiotBall: A few times such as "Inventors Only" with Flint believing everything and doing an ObviouslyEvil "inventor" says and tells him to do just because Flint wanted to meet another inventor in the town.
* MadScientist: Hector Evilman in "Inventors Only" but he's not some much of a scientist as a crazy old guy in a lab coat with no way of making his own inventions.
* {{Retcon}}: Sam and Manny are, for some reason, are students in Swallowfalls School.
* ToiletHumor: Not very often but it happens like in "Baby Brent Sitter" where Baby Brent belches, farts, and tries to get Sam and Flint to clip his toenails ''with their teeth''.
* WhoWouldWantToWatchUs: In "Spoiler Orb". Flint and Sam skim through all of the books they never read when the titular orb tells them that one of them will meet their doom. The last book they read is about "giant food fall[s] from the sky". They find the topic hilarious.
