* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Only half of the episodes were released on home video, as late as the early 90s. Why they were never given a DVD release is not clear, although it could be due to the risqué content and the fact that the cartoon was never that popular (a lot of "nostalgic" cartoons are ignored by distributors, especially French productions).
** Thankfully, all of the episodes resurfaced on the Internet.



* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: This cartoon is from the 80s and it shows!

* AnimatedAdaptation

to:

* AnimatedAdaptationAnimalStereotypes:
** Renart is a fox, so of course he's a clever trickster.
** Hermeline is a vixen, so of course she's hot.
** Ysengrin is a wolf, so of course he's mean and authoritarian.
** Moufflard is a vulture, so of course he's a mean criminal.
** Pelé is a rat, so of course he's a dirty criminal.
* AnimatedAdaptation: Of ''ReynardTheFox''. With a lot of liberties.



* CatsAreMean: Tibert, the main cat character, always antagonizes Renart. Subverted with Superchou, who is very nice but a ditz.

* CatsAreMean: Tibert, the main cat character, always antagonizes Renart. Subverted with Superchou, who is very nice but a ditz. And the catgirls.



* DisguisedInDrag: Renart, many times.
* DisneyAcidSequence: The "Vieux roublard" song sequences in the first and second episodes. Renart fantasizes about dancing with scantily-clad cat showgirls, there are robots serving champagne along a RobotGirl, fashion magazine silhouettes, Renart wooing a woman while wearing a mask of this woman on the back of his head, a Tarzan-like woman rescuing Renart from a gorilla and then they both go on the Statue of Liberty that departs on rockets.



* TheEighties: ''Moi Renart'' was set and broadcast in this period. There are actually very little Eighties culture elements visible; the most visible part is when Renart daydreams a music video starring himself with showgirls, robots serving champagne, Grace Jones spitting a car and the Statue of Liberty on rockets.

It is a very loose adaptation of ''Le Roman de Renart'', an anthology of satirical tales written in the French Middle Ages. The original stories were about a fox called Renart outwitting other animals as they try to chase food. Those tales were so popular that [[AKindOfOne it even replaced in French vocabulary "goupil" with "renard" (French for fox)]].

* BestKnownForTheFanservice: One of the reasons this series has remained in the nostalgic memories is mostly for the sexualized anthropomorphic characters.
