Most of the episodes involve them solving some problem or having some adventure, made ever more difficult [[CrowningMomentofFunny read: hilarious]] by their simplicity and ignorance due to being, well, baby animals. But, there are many reccurring plotlines, including Chirp trying to learn how to fly, an episode centered around quack and his singing, or Peep and Chirp trying to get to Green Island.

The show is currently on hiatus; no new episodes are planned at the moment, but the creators have expressed hope to make more in the future.



* ArmlessBiped: Peep and Quack. In fact, most of the major characters don't even have visible forelimbs. Like for example, Peep has no arms whatsoever. So they hold things in their beaks (like actual birds).

* GenderFlip: In the original short film, Peep was female and Chirp was male. In the main series, it's the other way around. Oh, and Quack was always a boy.

* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: In the pilot, when [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Quack falls asleep ontop of a flower the birds were taking care of]], he is very remorseful. (It doesn't help that Chirp gives him a hard time)

* VocalEvolution: Due to the real-life time gap between season three and four, this happened in season four. Peep's voice lowered and Chirp's becoming so high it was virtually unrecognizable. While not as prominent, Quack's voice also sounds slightly higher. This didn't sit well with long-time fans.

* InformedSpecies: If not for the tiny cockscomb on his head, you probably wouldn't know Peep was a chicken. Chirp and Quack look very little like a robin or a duck too (Quack actually looks more like a penguin without wings). Humorously lampshaded when Quack happens upon a hunting decoy of a more realistic looking duck. While Quack somehow recognized it as a duck (but doesn't seem to realize that it isn't alive), everyone else is skeptical on the grounds that it looks nothing like him.

Chirp is the only one who seems fairly close to her species.

Added DiffLines:

** During night scenes he's definitely blue. Day scenes amp up the purple tones but he's still fairly blue.

* NotAllowedToGrowUp: Peep will forever remain a baby chicken, even though they've been through too may winters to count.

* HypocriticalHumor: In the episode with Quack 2, she insults Quack's way of walking and says that only "squinks" walk like that, but when she shows off her walk to show that it's different it's EXACTLY like Quack's.
** In that same episode, Quack complains that Quack 2 is demanding, takes up a lot of space, and sneezes on others...while he's doing ''exactly the same thing'' with Peep and Chirp.
