* AndKnowingIsHalfTheBattle: Many stars of the era, such as [[Series/SmallWonder Tiffany Brissette]], Creator/JasonBateman, [[Film/StandByMe Corey Feldman]] and [[Series/BeverlyHills90210 Shannen Doherty]], appeared on camera usually introduced by an animated Teddy Ruxpin (in one instance by the doll itself) to deliver a safety message in a segment titled "Protect Yourself" at the end of every episode.
** This also happened in the original books, where it was also combined with one or two songs.

episode. This also happened in the original books, where it was also combined with one or two songs.



* BewareTheNiceOnes: For nearly the entire series, Teddy is portrayed as patient, soft-spoken and calm. When his friends turn against him, however, Teddy is able to take on an entire room of bad guys alone and win, as seen in "M.A.V.O. Costume Ball". This could also double as Teddy's personal {{Crowning Moment of Awesome}}.

* CallARabbitASmeerp: Teddy Ruxpin is not a bear; he is an illiop. Similarly, Gimmick is a Perloon, and the monkey creatures in the masks with the planes are called Gutangs.

** KangarooCourt: A rule prohibited the defendant (Tweeg) from speaking.



* LethalChef: Grubby cooks food with roots in them. Given new meaning when his famous root stew is actually weaponized by King Nogbert's kingdom to fight the Gutangs.
** What's ''really'' cute is that Teddy and Gimmick are far too polite to point out to Grubby that he's a horrible chef.
** Except for root beer. Teddy and Gimmick liked Grubby's recipe.

** DarkReprise: In "Beware of the Mudblups", the trio sing cheerily about how singing makes mining coal for their airship feel like it goes faster. Later on, when they're captives of the Mudblups and forced to mine coal, they sing the same song again, but in an angry/sarcastic tone, and with Arin adding on a mournful verse worrying about being captive forever.
*** Also done in the episode "The Ying Zoo".

* SuperPoweredEvilSide: ''Do not'' feed Prince Arin vitamin Z... or any Illiper for that matter. It is not pretty.
** Judging by the dialogue, this would happen to ''anyone'' who eats too much vitamin Z, not just Illipers. Notice how Grubby crushed a large spoon with ease after just a taste of the vitamin Z-saturated soup and the Grunge chief became concerned.

* WackyRacing: The subject of a five-part plot arc that happened later in the series. Whilst the trio used their Airship (modified to sail on the land), some of the other vehicles we get to see are a giant hamster wheel (Tweeg's mother), a toy car (Leota and Seymour), a motorbike (Prince Arin and Princess Aruzia), and a skateboard (Wooly and some of his fob friends).

* BritishAccents: Prince Arin, King Nogburt, and Queen Lillibet all have British-inspired accents. Strangely, Princess Aruzia doesn't.

* {{Expy}}: Tweeg and L.B. are expies of [[WackyRaces Dick]] [[DastardlyAndMuttleyInTheirFlyingMachines Dastardly and Muttley]]. L.B. occasionally laughs like Muttley and Tweeg not only has his DickDastardlyStopsToCheat moment but he once said [[BorrowedCatchphrase "Drat, drat and double drat"]].
