* RunningGag: The Conductor's mother.

* RunningGag: RunningGag:
**
The Conductor's mother.mother and the doting way in which she treats her son, though sometimes embarrassing him.


Added DiffLines:

** At least with all the songs that made it onto the "Dinosaur Jams" album, there's a running gag with every song sung by the Conductor. He says that something [[ThatRemindsMeOfASong reminds him of a song]], resulting in the Pteranodon kids/Buddy asking for him to sing it, only for him to insist that they couldn't possibly want to hear him sing. They beg for him to sing it and he immediately launches into song, with everyone else present soon joining in.

* TimeParadox: Averted. Despite all the time-traveling, the characters never get out of sync with their own time and thus never meet past or future versions of themselves or return to their own time through a time tunnel that brings them back to a time before they had left. Also, the "present" Cretaceous era seems to be in lockstep with the "past" Triassic and Jurassic eras such that when the ''Pteranodon'' family visits a friend in the past, they are never brought to a point in the past that is before the time when they had met their friend.
* TurtleIsland:
** When the family visits the Misty Sea, they mistake ''Spinosaurus'' for an island.

* BlackComedy: In "Zeppelin: Crater," the Pterosaur family and Mr. Conductor visit a crater that may have been created by an asteroid. They discuss the idea of something like that happening again. Mr. Conductor says his mother told him that something like that is very rare and not something to worry about. Buddy comments "I mean, what are the odds an asteroid would ever hit us?"


Added DiffLines:

* UnusualEuphemism: "Zeppelin: Crater" has both "holy herbivores!" and "leapin' lambeosaurs!"
