* DisneySchoolOfActingAndMime: The series [[DefiedTrope intentionally avoided this style of acting]] to better serve the down to earth tone of the series. [[http://maxiesatanofficial.tumblr.com/image/171682388777 The original style guide for the show]] even warned the artists not to use theatrical gestures like finger pointing for the babies, saying that characters like Tommy, being a one year old, should be free of any kind of acting that conveys affection, maturity, cultural conditioning and malice. The movies get a little more expressive in the acting, but nowhere to the extent of a Disney movie.

* CreditsJukebox: Every episode featured the same OP of its era, but the ED could vary; sometimes it would use the usual ending music but other times it would play a different piece of music instead. Dialogue and sound effects from the just-ended episode sometimes continued into the credits

* SustainedMisunderstanting: The show basically runs on this trope, with the babies applying their own knowledge to try to make sense of things adults do. For example, they come to the conclusion that "The Meanie of Hanukkah" needs to be put down for a nap.

* DeliberatelyJumpingTheGun: In the episode, "Susie Vs. Angelica", Susie and Angelica compete in a race to see who's the best three-year-old in the world. Tommy is given the job of waving the flag (which consists of a pair of underwear on a stick). Angelica drives off before he waves the flag, which leads to this exchange:
-->'''Lil:''' Hey! That was cheating!
-->'''Tommy:''' Nah, Angelica told me, she was opposed to go right before the flag was waved, and Susie's opposed to right after.
-->'''Phil:''' [[ComicallyMissingThePoint Oh. Well, as long as it wasn't cheating]].

** The episode "Touchdown Tommy" featured the adults watching the "[[SuperBowl Ultra Bowl]]." While the team names are never stated (presumably for copyright reasons), it's clearly intended to portray the Houston Oilers (later the Tennessee Titans) vs the Dallas Cowboys. Drew is wearing a silver shirt with a blue star on it, while Howard's shirt is red, white and blue, with a stylized [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/4/44/HoustonOilers.png oil derrick]] on it, both of which are the main logos for the respective teams. The episode was first aired in late October of 1991, at which point Houston was 4-2 and Dallas was 5-1.\\\
