* DastardlyWhiplash - Although it's more in appearance. Both heads of Flim Flam Mc Sham indeed look like a cross between [[WackyRaces Dick Dastardly]] and [[DudleyDoRight Snidely Whiplash]].

* SortingAlgorithmOfEvil: Not that things were ever especially grim, but for the first few episodes Widget and his human friends battle rather mundane antagonists for the first few episodes while he's acclimating to Earth and seems to still be figuring out his powers. The first episode has them taking on a whaling fleet, then a pair of hyenas, a caretaker at a marine zoo who's just doing his job trying to keep the animals from escaping, etc. It's only after a while that "true" supervillains start becoming Widget's opponents.

* TalkingAnimal

to:

* TalkingAnimalSetRightWhatOnceWentWrong: Subverted in one episode Mega Brain accidentally sends them back in time to Ratchet's home planet before it was turned into a disaster area. They hope to prevent that from happening, but going back in time also causes Widget to devolve into an alien caveman who's no help. By the time Mega Brain cures him they're too late, serving up an aesop about how there's no shortcuts to saving the environment, and we need to protect in the here and now if our world is going to be a good one in the future.
* TalkingAnimal: Widget after changing his shape.

The show was produced by Calico Creations to teach children about the dangers of pollution. In each episode, Widget contended with a villain wishing to exploit Earth's environment or natural resources, like Dr. Dante, Mega Slank and Widget's evil twin, Ratchet the World Trasher. In this respect, ''Widget, the World Watcher'' is very similar to ''CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers'', both heroes attempting to save the Earth from ecological harm.

* BrokenAesop - One episode featured Widget and his friends releasing a domesticated whale that had never known the ocean from its tank in a marine park. As the lesson of [[DownerEnding real-life whale Keiko taught us]], this... wouldn't end well...
** More of a case of ScienceMarchesOn; nobody ''knew'' that would happen when this show was made.

* JekyllAndHyde - Human villain Dr. Dante's a subversion. His normal "Jekyll" side is still a villain, but his "Hyde" persona takes things UpToEleven and is AlwaysChaoticEvil.
