* CatchPhrase: When suggesting each new adventure, the Cat tells the kids "Your mother will not mind at all if you do..." [[CallBack referencing a similar repeated line from the books]]. Once the journey is underway, Nick can be counted on to exclaim "That's ''so cool!''" at some point.

* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Thanks to his role as responsible guardian to the kids, the Cat is actually quite a bit saner and more organized here than in the original... but he's still a Dr. Seuss character, prone to all that implies.

* DontTryThisAtHome: Before giving the kids bubble gum to help them stick to rocks like limpets, Cat makes them promise never to try the same thing back home. "Your mother will most ''certainly'' mind if you do!"

* BagOfHolding: The Cat's hat, as per the original, turns out to contain ''whatever'' the company might need for that day's adventure. The similarly-stuffed hatch at the back of the Thingamajigger probably qualifies it too, given the Things apparently live there.

* MediumAwareness: After they get permission from their moms to go on the day's adventure, the kids yell to the Cat "We can go! We can go!" and he ecstatically jumps into the air and bellows back "I know, I know!!". In one episode, they perform this ritual [[ItMakesSenseInContext in a small tent they've just finished putting up]]... leading the Cat to add a ''very'' calm "...and let's never do that in a tent again, OK?"

* OnlySaneMan: As per the original, Fish sees himself in this role in relation to the Cat's unbridled whimsy ("''Some''body's gotta take care of you!"). Sally also gets shades of it from time-to-time.
