* TailfinWalking: Guess who. Sometimes Kenny's tailfin gets animated as though they're actual legs.
* ThreateningShark: Subverted. While Kenny does cause a bit of trouble, he usually has good intentions when causing it. Played straight with his hammerhead friend, Dan. Peter though believes this, as do several other humans in the series.

The series is set in California and centers around a little girl named Katarina "Kat" Cassidy (voiced by Kelli Rabke) and her pet tiger shark, the titular Kenny (voiced by Jim Conroy). As explained in the theme song, Kenny was a shark that decided to move up on land after becoming tired of the ocean, while Kat was a girl looking for a special pet that she could love for her own. When they met, it was love at first sight. Notable about the premise of the show is that Kenny, although a shark, is capable of walking and breathing on dry land, among other obvious feats that no shark in real life is capable of doing--other aquatic life is shown being able to do this as well. Nobody in the show questions this. Kat is also able to speak shark, making her the only one who understands just how intelligent Kenny actually is.
