* DingDongDitchDistraction: In one episode, Heffer and Filburt go on a ding-dong-ditch spree and rope Rocko into it. Rocko knocks on the door of the Hippo Lady, but can't go through with it and apologizes. The Hippo Lady, however, is tickled by the idea and goes on a pranking spree of her own.

* SanitySlippage: In "Put to Pasture," when Rocko, Heffer, and Filburt are trying to substitute a "potato, water, and lightbulb" experiment, there is a section featuring [[Manga/DeathNote potato chips]]. Rocko slowly deals out the chips [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything like poker chips]], and while Heffer [[BigEater eats all of his instantly]], Filburt plans to eat [[{{Ghetto}} one potato chip per day]]. Heffer begs for Rocko's chips, scarfs them down, licks his fingers ''[[spoiler:[[GayMoment and his fingers]]]]'', and starts begging for Filburt's chips. Filburt goes so insane that [[ObfuscatingInsanity he starts talking to his own chips]].

* AffectionateNickname: "Turtledove" and "Turtle soup" for Filburt. Bev gets quite a few from Ed such as "Polliwog" and "Lovely loads." There's also a handful of times where Rocko is called "Fuzzy" and his parents call him "Boo-Boo."



* AnimalsNotToScale: Rocko the wallaby seems about 3 feet or so tall, making him the only realistically sized animal on the show (along with Spunky, though as he is not humanoid this doesn't count), compared to him Heffer the steer and Dr. Hutchison the cat (presumably of the house variety) look normal human size, about 5 and a half to six feet, Filburt the turtle is in-between, while the Bigheads who are cane toads are maybe 6 and a half feet tall, with their heads counting for at least half of that; their adult son Ralph who does not have a large head, but has about the same body height, is a little taller than Rocko, not counting his hair.

** Filburt has quite a few episodes where he's the one more in focus as early as ''Power Trip'' where he starts becoming a main character.



* GagCensor: Rocko's [[BreakingTheFourthWall self-worn censor bar]] when he strips naked at the nude beach in "Sand In Your Navel". Also, Rocko's weirdly crotch-restricted censor bar when he walks [[StealthPun down the staircase nude]] in "Camera Shy"

Added DiffLines:

** Filburt and Heffer never seem very consistent with their friendship, either being very close friends or extremely close to killing each other with them easily betraying each other in the blink of an eye if the situation seems fit.

** To give Hef credit, if he's the one who ends up messing something up for Rocko, he'll make up for it without question albeit in unorthodox ways. "Hair Licked" is one of the best episodes that signifies this trope for him. He's responsible for messing up Rocko's hair (albeit unintentionally since he's not the best barber) and his picture at Filburt's (his butt bumped into the fan trying to pick up a cookie) but he was also the one who helped Rock get a better haircut by the Chameleon Brothers and a picture for the newspaper thanks to pushing Rocko's face on the copier. It wasn't the prettiest picture and everyone mocked it but Rocko liked it anyway.

* Corpsing: An in-universe example with the guy from the Department of Immigration in "Kiss Me, I'm Foreign" who is incapable of staying serious even as he threatens to deport Rocko. Every single scene has him either laughing or suppressing the urge to laugh. TheGrimReaper had to tell him to be quiet during the wedding of Rocko and Filb.
