Added DiffLines:

According to legend, Toad Hollow is a haven for toads created by the mysterious Ancients. Every year the toads must leave their homeland and follow the clues left by the ancients to find the Fairy Ring before it closes - and almost any toad left behind is transformed into a toadstool. The show follows a group of late born Toadlets who missed the great migration. Unable to figure out what to do, they are greeted by a wandering Toad sage named Mistle Toad. He tells them about the Fairy Ring and how to find it, which is quite difficult since the location changes every year. It is revealed shortly after that the youngest of the eight toadlets, Panther Cap, has the ability to hear what certain "Lightning Oaks" (called Thunder Trees by the toadlets) are saying, and can also home in on these trees telepathically with the use of an acorn.

* CommonSense: Fur Foot, Elf Cup and Oyster all have common sense... seemingly on a level that the remaining Toad Patrol members lack.
** As a leader, Fur Foot always has to make quick decisions. His common sense tends to be the most clear when he makes decisions on the behalves of others. In "Lost And Found", Fur Foot made an instant association between dogs (one in particular) and humans. After a dog ends up in his care, he makes the decision to take it to the 'stomper place' so it could be properly cared for.
** While Elf Cup has a bit of a temper, she is probably the best example of Toad Patrol common sense. This is shown in many episodes including "The Cure," "The Healer," "Winter Woes," "Castaway," and so on.
** As Slippery Jack is hypercompetent when it comes to complex things, Oyster appears to balance him out by being hypercompetent when it comes to basic things. Unfortunately, her common sense prowess goes largely unnoticed due to it being... well... common sense. Anyone can do it, right? Oyster even expresses her annoyance at this in the episode, "Choices".

* TheMessiah: Mistle Toad has never been shown to dislike anyone. Ever.
** This is made especially apparent on the Mistle-Toad chocolate tin.
--> "At the tunnel we see '''Mistle-Toad''' helping others hop up a natural stone stairway, as he offers each Toadlet his hand. Consumed by a brilliant light as if passing into a new dimension or beginning a new life '''Mistle-Toad''', the Tunnel-Toad and the Toadlets take on very distinctive apparel and appear to have gained dignity and bearing. So herein lies the basis for a toad tale to end all and in the process a celebration of world peace."

** On the website www.toadpatrol.com, the creators stated explicitly that Puff Ball and Fur Foot would never use their tools as weapons. They would only use their tools to indirectly hinder their foes. (With the intent of keeping the show more kid-friendly.) [[spoiler: However, in one concept image, the Toad Patrol is shown in a large scale battle against a snake (who we can safely assume is Erebus) and a giant brown rat. Fur Foot and Puff Ball are prepared to use their tools as weapons on both sides. Shaggy Mane is swinging overhead in preparation for a kick and Beauty Stem is blinding the snake with her 'shine'.]]
