Added DiffLines:

* HeterosexualLifePartners: Stanley's close with all three of his pets, but it's implied Dennis may have been his first pet, and therefore the one he is the closest to.


Added DiffLines:

* PlatonicLifePartners: Again, the pets are all close, but Harry and Elsie appear to be each other's best friends too.

* ShoutOut: In "Horsepower," both when Stanley first looks up horses in ''The Great Big Book of Everything'' and when one comes out of it, a bit of the theme from ''Series/GreenAcres'' is played. Additionally, Harry and Elsie reference the lyrics from the theme of ''Series/MisterEd'' when they perform the "Great Big Book of Everything" song. And in ''Stanley's Dinosaur Round-Up," when Stanley asks what kind of animals are at the dude ranch, Mr. Griff states "they have horses, of courses."

** When Dennis performs the "Good as Gold" song because he fears he's being replaced with another pet, the shades that he wears and general stylings are definitely reminiscent of Music/EltonJohn. This seems to be have been confirmed officially in a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6rv-NhUfzLU comment]] by one of the show's storyboard artists.

*OffscreenTeleportation: Harry and Elsie appear out of ''nowhere'' to sing the annoying song about the Big Book; Even Denis lampshades it
-->'''Denis''': How do you two always manage show up to sing that horrid song about that book, in even the most ''improbable'' places?

* OstrichHeadHiding: In "Honest Ostrich", Stanley feels he let Marci down when he can't find a soccer ball she let him borrow for a big game, and he wishes that he could hide his head in the sand like an ostrich and forget the whole day. Dennis points out to him that Ostriches don't really hide their heads in the sand, and after finding out the truth in the GreatBigBookOfEverything, he finds out that Ostriches really duck their heads in the grass to avoid being spotted by predators. So they tell the kids that one myth is not true, and replace it with a variant on the myth instead? Ostriches don't hide their heads in the grass either to hide from predators. As the description says, they run.
