** Another installment features the characters singing to each other "''I like you / I like you / I like you just the way you are.''" Fred Rogers would end his program by telling viewers "You've made this day a special day by just your being you. There's no person in the whole world like you. And I like you just the way you are," inspired by his grandfather who once told him "Fred, you made this day a special day, just by being yourself. Always remember there's just one person in this whole world like you -- and I like you just the way you are."

* LimitedWardrobe: Most of the characters always wear the same set of clothes; Daniel has three sets of pajamas, though it feels a bit odd if the show opens with them wearing pajamas, given that he was just shown putting his shirt and shoes in the show intro. ''[[https://www.amazon.com/dp/1481467689 No Red Sweater for Daniel]]'' shows that Daniel actually has sweaters in blue, purple and green as well as his trademark red sweater; it's just that the red sweater is his favorite and so he always wears it. At Mom Tiger's urging, he wears the blue one because ''You can change your hair, or what you wear, but no matter what you do, you're still you.'' This doesn't explain, though, how he can normally be wearing a red sweater every day if he has to wear a different sweater just because ol' red got thrown in the wash.

Additionally, while all the characters have standard clothes, they also tend to dress for the weather or specific situations, such as bathing suits, snow-clothes, a painting smock, etc. There's even a song about this too: "''Think about what you're gonna do / Then pick the clothes that are right for you.''"

* AesopAmnesia: While lessons generally seem to stick from episode-to-episode, they often seem to take a while to sink in within a particular episode. For example, in "You Are Special," O has to hear several times "''I like you / I like you / I like you / Just the way you are''" before he stops trying to do stuff to be like the other characters to be special.



-->'''Teacher Harriet''': ''I like you / I like you / Just the way you are.''

* BeYourself: This is the [[AnAesop aesop]] of "You Are Special / Daniel is Special." For example, O wants to do a magic trick because he thinks it'll make him special like Prince Wednesday, even though he doesn't really know how to do magic. Teacher Harriet tells him he doesn't have to do a magic trick to be special.
