[[caption-width-right:300:Captain Flamingo! Looking out for little kids in a BIG way!]]

This Canadian Cartoon is about a young boy named Milo Powell. The series started in 2006. Deciding to take a stand for little kids everywhere, he becomes a superhero and after staring at a lawn flamingo in the backyard, becomes Captain Flamingo. While he has no actual superpowers, he uses a whole bunch of novelty store items, and has help from his best friend, Lizbeth Amanda Zaragoza, who acts as his sidekick and "Bird Brain". Together, they save kids from unusual situations in completely unusual ways.
----

!!This series provides examples of:
* ActionDuo: Milo and Lizbeth.
* {{Adorkable}}: Both Milo and Lizbeth. In Milo's case, his love for Quantum Vigilante and his kooky yet unique ways of solving problems. In Lizbeth's Case her fangirl worship of Captain Flamingo is downright adorkable.
* AdultsAreUseless: That, or very oblivous.
* AllJustADream: One episode had him dreaming he was fighting the Warrior Monkey while he was sleepwalking, and another where he and Lizbeth help his favorite superhero, Quantum Vigilante.
* AlmostKiss: He almost (Reluctantly) kisses Kirsten in one episode, but Lizbeth drags him away in time.
** Lizbeth has also nearly kissed Milo a couple of times, including one moment during an closing episode's CouchGag spoofing the SpaghettiKiss scene from Disney's LadyAndTheTramp.
* AlphaBitch: Ruth Ann.
* ArchEnemy: The Warrior Monkey.
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Thor, Milo's baby brother. Tabitha has one in Tucker.
* AsideGlance: Frequent by either Milo or Lizbeth.
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Sanjay's main flaw. Avi has this at times.
* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: Milo and Lizbeth have these moments on occasion. She may be annoyed at Milo's cluelessness, but it's clear they're close friends and care about each other. [[spoiler: Milo's probably too proud to admit his feelings for Lizbeth, though.]]
** Also, Milo and Dishrag, his pet cat. Despite getting on each other's nerves, they do have a nice bond between them.
* {{Backstory}}: Warrior Monkey has one. In his first appearance, Rutger buys a monkey as a pet, but it doesn't work out and the Captain needs to save him. After taking him back to the pet store, an organ grinder buys him in his second appearance and was forced to perform for kids. He then quits and becomes Captain Flamingo's arch nemesis. Also doubles as a ContinuityNod.
* BadlyBatteredBabysitter: Milo plays this trope straight. Averted with Megan, the actual babysitter, mainly because she's good at what she does.
* BareYourMidriff: Oddly enough, Lizbeth when she's not wearing her usual red dress. For example, there's her BellyDancer costume she wore for Halloween, in another Halloween themed episode, she dressed like [[Franchise/TombRaider Lara Croft]]. Also, when they dress up as rappers, she's wearing a belly shirt.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Happens between Milo and the narrator (Usually).
* BagOfHolding: His backpack stores all sorts of novelty items.
* BeachEpisode: A non-fanservice variety in ''Beach Blanket Flamingo.''
* BlackBestFriend: Rutger.
* BlindingBangs: Avi.
* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: Ruth Ann (and/or Tabitha), Lizbeth and Kristen.
* BrattyHalfPint: His cousin, Wendell, who rubs it in Milo's face that he's an eighth of an inch taller than him.
* BrainyBrunette: Lizbeth.
* CanadaEh: An episode had a gym hanging the Canadian and Ontarian flags.
* CatchPhrase: Lizbeth's "There's a kid! In trouble!
* CatsAreMean: His pet cat, Dishrag, subverts this. Sometimes she's helpful, but other times she's an annoyance.
* ChekhovsGun: Several times due to his "Bird Brain" ideas. Sour candy, his kite he flew in the beginning of one episode, a Christmas Card he wrote to Santa [[spoiler: So Lizbeth and her family can get Christmas presents,]] and several other instances.
* ClingyJealousGirl: Lizbeth, especially if Ruth Ann is involved. No one comes between her and her square shaped boy.
* CloudCuckooLander: Milo.
* ComedicUnderwearExposure: An episode involved the Warrior Monkey giving wedgies to the neighborhood kids.
* CompanionCube: Lizbeth's stuffed elephant, Chester. The Captain had to save it in one episode for her.
* ContrivedCoincidence: This frequently happens as a result of his "Bird Brain" solutions.
* CouchGag: The ending of each episode has the Captain doing something different during the Narrator's SoOnceAgainTheDayIsSaved moment. Sometimes it's posing with or without the logo, or interacting with the other characters in comical ways.
* CrazyPrepared: Tabitha wants to be this, being the perfectionist she is.
** Captain Flamingo as well, given that he has so many novelty items.
** In one episode, squirrels steal his backpack, and Lizbeth gives him hers until he gets it back. The everyday items (Pen and marker, for instance) turn out to be surprisingly helpful.
* CrossDressingVoices: TabithaStGermain voices Milo/Captain Flamingo.
* DeadpanSnarker: Lizbeth. Both Literally and Metaphorically.
** LittleMissSnarker
* DeusExMachina: At the end of one episode, Megan, Rutger's babysitter just happened to be a pro hockey player so she could take his place. Her hockey playing skills were never brought up before.
* DumbBlonde: Ruth Ann. Averted with Tabitha and Megan.
* ExpositoryThemeTune
* EmbarrassingMiddleName: Milo Ignacius Powell, used by his mom as a FullNameUltimatum in one episode. In fact, his father has the same middle name as him, and it's used in the same manner.
* EurekaMoment: His ability to misinterpret Lizbeth's suggestions while thinking with his "Bird Brain" is basically this. Even crazier is that his idea works (Usually).
* ForHalloweenIAmGoingAsMyself: Played straight for the most part in both Halloween episodes. But in ''Copycat Flamingo'', one of the Halloween episodes, the Warrior Monkey poses as him to sabotage Halloween for the kids. He counters this by dressing up as the Warrior Monkey, being kind and friendly to other kids and ruining his plan. Near the end of the episode, Owen Only dresses up as Lizbeth right down to her BellyDancer costume.
* GRatedDrug: Don't even think about giving Owen-Only anything with sugar. '''DON'T.'''
* GeniusDitz: Milo definitely fits this trope.
* GirlishPigtails: Lizbeth.
* GlassesGirl: Tabitha.
* TheGlomp: Lizbeth hugs Milo a few times.
** Milo does this to Lizbeth in ''Bunny Run'' when he's big enough to go on a rollercoaster ride. Cue [[HeartSymbol hearts in Lizbeth's eyes.]]

* HairDecorations: Ruth Ann and Kirsten wear hairbows, and Lizbeth has scrunchies.

* [[HeroesWantRedheads Heroines Want Redheads]]: Lizbeth's crush on Milo.
* HumanMail: Milo and Lizbeth mail Rutger as a package to get him away from a babysitter who keeps tabs on him. It backfires.
* IdiotBall: Frequently held by Milo, no less...
* IGotARock: Owen-Only's mom gives out toothbrushes on Halloween.
* JumpedAtTheCall: All the time. That's assuming it's not an April Fool's prank or Kirsten's faking it to be close to him.
* TheKlutz: Avi. He constantly causes a '''HUGE''' string of accidents.
* LargeHam: Milo tends to act over the top a lot.
* LemonyNarrator
* LustfulMelt: Seen in "Blind Sided", when Lizbeth heard the [[ArousedByTheirVoice "suave voice"]] provided by Otto's voice-changer.
* MagicSkirt: Lizbeth, save for one instance where her panties are seen (See PantyShot entry).
* MeaningfulName: Nick Names is a bully who [[TheNicknamer gives kids mean names]] [[WordsCanBreakMyBones that stick with them for life]]. Lizbeth, with help from her older sister finds out he was ridiculed with a hurtful name himself after winning a flute concert and was nicknamed "Toot Toot" because he tooted out of both ends (And It's not the flute for the other end).
* MundaneMadeAwesome: ''Captain Flamingo: The Musical'', InUniverse.
* MyBelovedSmother: Owen-Only's mom.
* MyLittlePhony: Milo, much to his dismay, has promised Lizbeth to go see a movie called "Return to Unicorn Island" in Alley Oops.
* MrFixIt: Lizbeth's dad.

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Happens frequently until his bird brain provides his EurekaMoment.
* OnlyOneName: With the exception of Max Roderick and Kirsten [=McBradden=], the kids they have to save are only known by their first names.
* OnlySaneMan: In spite of her obsession with Milo. Lizbeth really comes off as this.
* PantyShot: Kirsten gets a few of these when she's bouncing around on an out of control vacuum cleaner in ''The Last Stand,'' and Lizbeth also gets one in the dream sequence during ''Volunteers For Fears'' when she and the Captain are trapped in the net. But Ruth-Ann in ''Ten-Pin Peril'' wins the prize for "Most Convenient Angle To Get A PantyShot" when she trips over her ridiculously huge bowling shoes and slides down the alley hitting the pins, with the camera looking right up her dress.
* PhraseCatcher: "Uh-oh! Flamingo!"
* PottyEmergency: Milo has one in ''Water You Waiting For?''
* TheRival: Wendell to Milo. Tabitha and Sanjay are also competing in various events.
* SafetyWorst: Owen-Only's mom goes to ridiculous lengths to protect him. He frequently wears a ridiculous amount of safety gear, his house and especially his room has a security system, he goes to the beach with too much sunscreen more often than not and he even had to wear orthopedic underpants (Which the Captain and Lizbeth had to search through dirty laundry at the pool when it got lost). He can't get a break anywhere.
* SoOnceAgainTheDayIsSaved: "Captain Flamingo! Looking out for little kids in a '''BIG''' way!
* SheIsNotMyGirlfriend: Milo towards Kirsten. She'll often fake emergencies just to spend time with him. In a [[SheIsNotMyGirlfriend He is Not My Boyfriend]] case, Tabitha towards Otto, since she finds him disgusting.
** To a lesser extent, Milo and Lizbeth. Due to [[ShipTease ship teasing]] she [[VictoriousChildhoodFriend may]] or [[UnluckyChildhoodFriend may not]] have him. Lizbeth's sure of herself she will, though...
* StalkerWithACrush: Kirsten and to a certain extent Lizbeth (both towards Milo).
* RealMenWearPink: Double Subverted. He does wear a pink and blue outfit, but he's not exactly tough. He does manage to save the day, nonetheless.
* RescueRomance: Accidental, but it's the reason why Lizbeth's in love with Milo. When they were babies, she flew off of a swing and Milo coincidentally broke her fall when he fell in the sand while making a sand castle. This was also the first time they met, and she never forgets it to this day.
* ResetButton: In one episode, Owen Only gets roller blades that have a turbo feature which he accidentally triggers. After several failed attempts to slow him down and stop him, they grab onto to him, going downhill really fast and going back in time, and Milo jumps out of the wormhole and tells his overprotective mom not to buy the roller blades, which she doesn't.
* [[SmartGuy Smart Girl:]] Tabitha.
** Lizbeth as well.
* SpeechImpediment: Max speaks like [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Elmer Fudd]].

* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Lizbeth (Tomboy) and Ruth Ann (Girly Girl).
* UnderTheMistletoe: At the end of the Christmas episode, Milo and Lizbeth hug, but then he sees the mistletoe and runs away. Lizbeth runs after him giggling.
* VocalEvolution: Kirsten sounded normal and plain in the first couple of episodes. She now sounds higher pitched for the rest of the series.
* WeaksauceWeakness: Milo's is sausage Pizza. In the Warrior Monkey's case, catchy music.
* WillTheyOrWontThey?: Milo and Lizbeth.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NOsJu2Py9nk the demo seen here,]] Milo's last name would've been Howell, which got passed on to his cousin Wendell. He would also have had glasses and blue hair, and his superhero outfit was completely different, including wearing a flamingo on top of his head instead of him having it being his helmet. Other character designs were also different, and he would also face a teenager named Tervit.
