* ValuesDissonance: This show passes for a kids show back in Europe, where there is less prudishness on sexual and rather crude humor. In America, [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar well people were wondering how it got on TV in the first place.]]
* {{Yellowface}}: Mimmi, in the original Swedish version of the series. In the United States, her skin color was changed due to original skin color being offensive towards East Asians.

* AsianBuckTeeth: Mimmi.



* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Lots of it. A lot of people who remember this show even have said how perverted it was for a kids' show (and was the reason why the show didn't last in America). The worst part about this is, at one point, when the show was available On Demand, it was shown on PBS Sprout (home to safe, inoffensive kids' shows, some of which have educational value). And one of the episodes that were on demand on that channel was the one where Frank goes catatonic when he sees Tony's girlfriend changing in front of him. Also, HIT Entertainment still distributes the show outside Scandinavia and Germany (according to the mirror of an old HIT's [[http://ecc.netlink.info/hit/hit_ecat.html website]]), despite having decayed into the preschool program producer and distributor.

* BlandantLies: Jerry has a habit of telling these often in order to try to sound cool. Most people don't buy it but sometimes humor him just to watch him fail to live up to them.

* EveryoneHasStandards: Jerry is awkward and has a hard time fitting in with others and making friends. When he and his family moved to a new neighborhood due to his father's new job, Jerry meets and befriends a group of kids. They look similar to the kids back in town only they are much, much nicer and far easier to get along with, [[VictoryIsBoring to the point of being unchallenging]]. Jerry finds the whole experience very strange and when they start to move back to town, Jerry can only mutter "weirdos" to himself.

* NotNowKiddo: Mimi is often the victim of this trope by his father.



** In a more general sense, The Girls are often just as bad, if not even ''worse'', than The Three Friends. They are often portrayed as very shallow, manipulative, and will be enamored, then repulsed, by the Three Friends for very petty reasons, often contradicting what they themselves said earlier.
