* CatchPhrase: Quincy is very fond of magnanimously declaring, "I CAN-NOT... BELIEVE IT!" when something unexpected happens. He says this often enough that it has potential to become a {{Most Annoying Sound}} if you watch several episodes in a row. On rare occasions he'll change the end of it, in a "I CANNOT BELIEVE that you did that!" sort of fashion.

* DefeatMeansFriendship: [[spoiler:The episode Show and Tell has Big Jet be as jerky as normal, where he steals the kids' favorite things, which they had been bringing to [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin show and tell]] at school. This lasts until the very end, after they've all gotten them back, when he shows up and apologizes for his actions for the first time ever. This leads to a rather [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming cute]] scene with the kids and Rocket.]] Though it was left somewhat open-ended, as that was that character's last appearance before the show went on hiatus, it's implied to be this trope.
** Besides this the theme pops up in other episodes, such as "The Song of the Unicorn" and "The Good Knight and the Bad Knight".

* {{Leitmotif}}: June has one that's most often heard whenever she says "Dancey dancey dance" and spins, although it's also used when she opens an episode after the curtain rises. Heard [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0zYH6N8hneQ here]] at about 1:45.

* ViewersAreGoldfish
* WiseBeyondTheirYears: June. Besides the SesquipedalianLoquaciousness touched on above, she's often the one to answer questions, come up with obscure information, or just act the most adult in general. Her elegancy also plays into this, and all of this can make her seem much older than six.
** This occasionally even pushes her into TeamMom territory, especially with the guest characters. That in and of itself can be seen most in the episode "The Blue-Footed Booby Bird Ballet" where she mentors a baby [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin blue-footed booby bird that's a member of her bird ballet troupe]].

Added DiffLines:

* {{Retcon}}: The episode "Super Fast!!" shows the kids learning how to use Rocket's different speeds, while "Annie, Get Your Microphone!", is an episode that shows how Annie first got her microphone. Annie already has her microphone in the former episode, while the kids know how to use Rocket's speeds in the latter, which leaves a plot hole.


Added DiffLines:

* TokenHuman: The four kids are, in fact, the only humans present - their parents are never seen, nor any other humans.

Added DiffLines:

* BilingualDialogue: Any character that is not one of the four kids - counting Rocket - doesn't talk with words, but with music, though the kids have no problem understanding them. Lampshaded in "He Speaks Music!", as Annie is the only one to understand the baby chimp's music language.

Added DiffLines:

* CutShort: Literally with the Blast Off sequence; it's often shorted throughout the second season, where some of Leo's lines are rerecorded, and they removed the scenes of him saying "June is patting...Quincy's patting...Annie's patting...but we need more power!" and Rocket's jets firing up, finishing with him telling the viewer to help them say "blast off" right after patting their laps faster.


Added DiffLines:

* TechnicolorEyes: If one looks real closely, the kids' scleras, mostly June's are a few shades darker than the usual white, making them appear silverish.
