* SwissArmySuperpower: Quackers was often used as a replacement for whatever tool the pigs needed to get out of the current problem from a harpoon to a squirt gun to an outboard motor. One of the more common (and weird) uses he was put to was having a flashlight shoved in his bill with the pigs then walking around holding him up by the feet.

* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: There were a couple episodes with human characters who never thought anything at all of meeting anthropomorphic pigs or vice versa. A few times [[InterspeciesRomance the guys pigs were shown being attracted to beautiful human women]], with the girl pigs getting jealous of the beautiful human women too.

* MonsterOfTheWeek: The plot was always driven by some supernatural evil escaping the ForbiddenZone, [[MoodWhiplash which is kind of an unexpected choice for a cartoon about talking pigs]], since the monsters were usually not used for humor.

Added DiffLines:

* VileVillainSaccharineShow: As noted the talking pigs are pretty typical of most FunnyAnimal fare, but each episode ends up being about some monster or other that's portrayed as menacing as they could get away with on a Saturday morning cartoon.

''Piggsburg Pigs'' is a forgotten little series released in 1990 by Creator/RubySpears. It took place in the town of Piggsburg, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin which as the name implies]] was inhabited by anthroporphic pigs, and focused on the bizarre misadventures of the Bacon brothers Bo, Portly and Pighead, and their pet duck Quackers.

They were constantly ducking the schemes of the wolves Huff and Puff to eat them for lunch, but danger would also frequently appear from the menacing swamp on the edge of town. The heavy usage of some pretty genuinely menacing monsters for a cartoon where the main characters were silly anthropomorphic animals probably explains a lot about why this show isn't more remembered.
