* HumanityIsInsane: Earth has been a huge problem to the Watchers, and they can't ever see to make things right there. Widget is the latest in the line of aliens assigned to trying to keep humans from destroying themselves and their planet with them.

* 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.
