There are two different English-language dubs; an American one and a British one. The American dub is far more faithful to the original scripts, but has been criticized for treating its [[ViewersAreMorons audience like morons]] unable to understand subtle dialogue. The UK dub, on the other hand, changed some names, dialogue, and characterization to make a more comedic tone. A good example of the stylistic difference is that in the French and American version the frog mechs are called "Koa the Frog" or "Koas", while in the British dub that is translated to "Stereoscopic Hydrolic Amphibious Personnel Relocation Units" or for short, "Frogbuckets".

* StupidEvil[=/=]TooDumbToLive: In the above-mentioned StrangeBedfellows episode, Lord Krabo sabotages the asteroid-busting energy-blaster so it is instead locked onto the Flower City, in hopes of ending the war in favor of the Yuks once and for all. Completely ignoring that if the asteroid isn't blown up, they'll be dead.

An recurring theme is that the Yuk/Krud way of life is ultimately futile, as they get their fuel from chopping down flowers (they are the size of trees relative to the cast) which will eventually run out.

out due to the voracious way that the Yuks/Kruds insist on burning through them.



* BadIsGoodAndGoodIsBad: The US Dub gives this trait to the Yuks, with Kretinus in particular prone to waxing poetically on how drab and depressing things are. The very second episode has Queen Bakrakra waxing happily over an abysmally tuneless rendition of "Happy Birthday" (here "Sinister Birthday") accompanied by inept percussion music and being delighted with Krabo's ugly statue of her.



* EvilIsDeathlyCold: Played with; Bakrakra/Catheter III is always freezing cold, to the point her personal chambers are depicted with flickering flames like the interior of a furnace, and her demand to be kept warm and toasty fuels the Yuk/Krud war against the Joyces/Verigreens.



* MundaneUtility: The Joyce/Verigreen hero's weapon is a guitar that shoots colour, meaning that when payed it provides its own fireworks. Most of the big Yuk/Krud weapons where in fact designed as logging equipment.

* PostModernMagick: In the US dub, at least, Fulgor's father is as much a sorcerer as he is a scientist and that is why he can create wonders like Gallopus. He's also a mechanic who is able to shoot lightning from his fingertips, as Fulgor gets a rather painful demonstration in the final episode.

Added DiffLines:

* TheReveal: Several, over the course of the series:
** [[spoiler: Yuks and Joyces are the same people; Joyces are descended from Yuks who touched an alien artefact and chose to renounce the lifeless, dreary existence of perpetually digging for coal to instead devote themselves to life amongst nature, filling their existence with music and color.]]
** [[spoiler: Fulgore isn't a Joyce but a Yuk who was reared by Joyces after being left amongst them as a baby in Gallopus' compartment.]]
** [[spoiler: Fulgore's father is the previous Chief Engineer of the Yuks, Eurekas, and he's still alive; he's merely been trapped deep underground in a cave complex since a failed attempt to defect from the Yuks.]]
