* HatesBaths: Guysborough loves garbage and hates being cleaned. When Foduck tried to clean him in "Foduck and the Shy Ship", Guysborough thought he was melting.


Added DiffLines:

* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: In "Theodore and the Boat Bully", the normally [[NoIndoorVoice loud and easily excited]] Owan becomes very quiet and unenthusiastic when he finds out that Oliver the Vast, a visiting JerkJock tug, is coming to the big harbor to take him to the ocean to work.
* ThePigPen: Guysborough. Though being a garbage barge, it isn't surprising.

It was produced by Robert Cardona, co-producer of ''{{TUGS}}'', making this a SpiritualSuccessor of said show. Both are centered on the harbour activities of a fleet of tugboats who wear hats. Unlike TUGS, which was set in TheRoaringTwenties and were essentially models mounted on trolleys pulled by fishing line, the setting of ''Theodore'' is much more modern and the characters are radio-controlled.

* PokemonSpeak: Donald Dock. All he can say is "Uh-huh". The junk dock Jasper can only say "nope". Apparently it's common for docks to only be able to say one word.
