* EndOfEpisodeSilliness: Nearly every episode closes with some comedy from the Urpneys over their loss, along with a dry one liner provided by Frizz.

Cult Creator/{{CITV}} children's AnimatedSeries from the early 1990s. Noted both for the quality of its animation and its Mike Batt soundtrack, including cameos from such unlikely people as Ozzy Osborne and Creator/BillyConnolly.

* ConflictBall: A perpetually clutched example. The normally peaceful and saccharine heroes are required to always be too incensed by the Urpneys' evil, diabolical attempts to [[PokeThePoodle ruin their dreams]] to notice or care if all [[TokenEvilTeammate but two of them]] are TheDragAlong to their murderous BadBoss. In later episodes, they still rival the Urpneys, but more proportionately.

* IndecisiveDeconstruction: The show comes off as such due to the Urpney scenes, which mock the SeriousBusiness formula of 80s/90s cartoons and treat [[WhatMeasureIsAMook the Urpneys']] [[TrappedInVillainy doomed situation]] as genuinely tragic ([[{{Dramedy}} despite it's comedic execution]]). The heroes themselves however play the formula totally and utterly straight, are generally treated as right, and inexplicably treat the Urpneys' anti climatic threats with unironic tension. Later episodes try to tweak the plot to find a middle ground.

* IndecisiveDeconstruction: The show comes off as such due to the Urpney scenes, which mock the SeriousBusiness formula of 80s/90s cartoons and put excess SympatheticPOV on what the Urpneys suffer from being TrappedInVillainy over a futile goal. The heroes themselves however play the formula totally and utterly straight and are always treated as in the right against the Urpneys. Later episodes try to tweak the plot to find a middle ground.

* AllPowerfulBystander: ** The heroes and villains are led by the Dream Maker and Zordrak respectively, who are both near unmatchable in magical abilities and strength. They rarely take part in battle however, always sending their {{Muggle}} minions to do the job. The Wuts similarly rarely travel to Viltheed unless the Noops fail, though will battle enemies invading the Land of Dreams.

* EarlyBirdCameo: ** The Planet Dreamstone is cryptically shown in the pilot's dream sequence (and thus every episode's credit sequence), before being properly introduced in "The Daydream Bubble". ** The bird that antagonises the Urpneys in "The Shrinking Stone" looks almost identical to the title character of "The Jolly Bird", aired four seasons later.

* {{Deconstruction}}: Can be considered something of one to the Sisyphean formula of most slapstick cartoons such as ''LooneyTunes'' where the villain's stubborn zeal leads to endless defeats by the hero. In' 'The Dreamstone'', the Urpneys are cowards GenreSavvy to being outmatched, and spend each episode trying to avoid getting forced by their BadBoss into another scrape with the heroes (who doll as much punishment as in the standard formula).

The action formula is otherwise played straight however, making it an IndecisiveDeconstruction.
