Added DiffLines:

* AnachronicOrder: While the videos do not have any sort of overarching narrative, there ''is'' a chronological order, and they weren't made in this order.


Added DiffLines:

* AnimationBump: Compared to the usual stuff by Hanna Barbera. In all fairness, these were made in the 1980s and the 1990s.


Added DiffLines:

* WeirdnessCensor: Only a few episodes have the other characters find Derek, Margo, and Moki's clothing and 20th century mannerisms confusing. Most others just take it in stride.

* OutOfOrder: Kind of. The episodes are generally ordered chronologically, starting with "The Creation" and ending with "The Easter Story", but that's not the order they were released in. In fact, the episodes were produced in no particular order, ending with "Queen Esther" in 1992. Some continuity problems stem from this, if we are too assume the time-travelers are going through the Bible chronologically. For example, in "Moses" (released in 1986) the gang is amazed at having arrived in Egypt. However, they were already in Egypt in the chronologically previous episode "Joseph and His Brothers" (released in 1990).

* TakeAThirdOption: The show has done this a couple times with Biblical controversies:
** Traditionally, Vashti is seen as a wicked StrawFeminist while Esther is praised for being a properly submissive wife. Since the 19th century, there has been a feminist AlternativeCharacterInterpretation that views Vashti as an independent-minded heroine and Esther as [[RealWomenDontWearDresses a worthless pushover]]. In the ''Greatest Adventure'' version, both women are portrayed sympathetically, with the apparent reasoning that Vashti only had herself to be concerned about whereas Esther did what she had to do to save her people.
** "The Easter Story" dodges the whole issue of responsibility for the death of Christ. When Derek, Margo, and Moki start to go down that path, Mark puts the issue aside by saying that it doesn't really matter since Christ was fated to die for humanity's sins anyway.

It also shares an art style with ''CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers'', as Ted Turner helped fund the project.

* ArtisticLicenseBiology: Since these videos [[AnimationAgeGhetto were made for children]], it was assumed that [[ViewersAreMorons they wouldn't question]] the animals that were placed in the Garden. However, baraminologists and taxonomists would agree that placing ''modern'' species and sub-species in the garden when Genesis ''clearly'' states "created kinds" is a bit of a problem. Especially since it increases several thousandfold how many animals Adam would have had to name. It also complicates things for the Noah episode, an issue ignored by that episode as well.

Similar to ''SuperBook'' and ''The Flying House'', the series tried to focus on making the characters from the biblical stories relatable and believable. Surprisingly, it also adhered as closely to the original stories as possible, keeping many of the elements that most MoralGuardians quietly edit out to make the stories "appropriate" for children, editing only the relative closeness of events in order to keep within the 30-minute time frame.
