* EdutainmentShow: Unlike a lot of the more recent offerings, Aesops or pro-social values aren't the primary goal. Instead, the show has some very interesting things to teach about science and nature, and particularly various types of animals. Even PeripheryDemographic watchers may learn something they didn't know before, such as the properties of the blue-footed booby's feet, or the various ways in which a wolf can find their pack.

* RunningGag: See RefugeInAudacity above. Additionally, each episode features an interlude wherein Thing One and Thing Two are called on to get the travellers out of some difficulty, usually by building some wildly complicated contraption.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Originally, the main characters in ''Literature/TheCatInTheHat'' were the Cat, Sally, her brother Conrad, and their pet Fish. In this series, it's the Cat, ''his'' pet Fish, Sally, and a new African-American boy who lives next door, named Nick. What happened to Sally's brother? And when did Fish -- notoriously suspicious of the Cat in the original -- switch sides?
** It's possible that the boy's full name was "Nicholas Conrad" and he just started using one name more than the other.
** Also, maybe he's really Sally's cousin or the like, and lived with her for a time until his parents moved to their new home next door.
** The name Conrad was created for the [[Film/TheCatInTheHat Live Action movie]] he never had a canon name in the book.
