This page contains tropes that applies to the DVD releases. For the toys, see Franchise/LeapFrog.
Leapfrog regularly releases [=DVDs=] featuring animations of the characters its franchise created.
So far, 14 [=DVDs=] has been released. The first title, ''The Letter Factory'', was released way back in 2003. It was followed by ''The Words Factory'' in the same year, ''The Words Factory 2: Code Word Caper'' and ''Math Circus'' in 2004, ''(Learn to Read at) The Storybook Factory'' in 2005.
This was followed by a two year hiatus and then ''A Tad of Christmas Cheer'' in 2007. Then the series went into another two year hiatus before the next video. During this hiatus, the three main characters (and Edison) were completely redesigned and many of the supporting were PutOnTheBus.
Upon returning from the hiatus, the first video released was ''Lets Go To School'' in 2009. This was followed by ''Math Adventure to the Moon'' in 2010. This was followed by ''The Amazing Alphabet Amusement Park'' and ''Numbers Ahoy'' in 2011.
In 2012, it appears that Leapfrog had gotten tired of Leap, Lily and Tad and decided to focus on Scout and his friends instead (not surprising, as at that time, Scout and Violet were Leapfrog's cash cow and toys from the company of that period primarily featured the two puppies). The result was the first two ''Scout and Friends'' video, ''Phonics Farm'' and ''Numberland'', following a new continuity. This was followed by ''Adventures in Shapeville Park'' and ''The Magnificent Museum of Opposite Words'' in 2013.
!!Tropes exhibited include:
* AmazingTechnicolorWildlife: There's Scout the green puppy, Violet the purple puppy, and Eli the blue cat. Other animals, however, are more or less the colors that you'd expect them to be.
* ArtEvolution: A major one that crosses with ArtShift between ''A Tad of Christmas Cheer'', and ''Let's Go To School!''. Also many noticeable minor improvements from ''The Letter Factory'' right up to ''A Tad Of Christmas Cheer''.
* CallBack: In ''The Magnificent Museum of Opposite Words'', the guests of the museum at the time of opening consists of characters from previous [=DVDs=] ''Phonics Farm'', ''Numberland'' and ''Adventures in Shapeville Park''
** For an example of a brother and sister, Mr. Polecat shows Tad and Lily.
* ChristmasSpecial: ''A Tad Of Christmas Cheer''
* FantasyHelmetEnforcement: In the Scout and Friends videos, notice how Axel automatically puts seatbelts on the characters during the "I'm With You Scout" song.
* HiroshimaAsAUnitOfMeasure: In ''Scout and Friends: Adventures in Shapeville Park'', mice called "measure mice" are used as part of a song number about measuring. "Look at Penny jump / How far can she go? / We can use the measure mice and then we'll know / Line them up and count them up, place them end-to-end! / Her jump is two mice long! That's how long!" The mice were cute and the song was catchy, but the problem was that no real-world units were given to relate just what "two mice" was. Some felt this may have been done to avoid having to get into confusion between metric and imperial units, but more than one reviewer and commenter on Amazon.com felt the idea of measuring with mice was somewhat bizarre.
* InspirationallyDisadvantaged: One-off character Dash in ''Adventures in Shapeville Park'' can't use his back legs and requires aid in the form of an "animal wheelchair". He can also run very fast.
* ItsAWonderfulPlot / WholePlotReference: ''A Tad Of Christmas Cheer'', in summary, completely references the plot of ''Film/ItsAWonderfulLife''.
* HeyItsThatVoice: Many of the [=VAs=] on the [=DVDs=] made their start and is well known in the anime dubbing industry.
* NoAntagonist: Unless you count Parker Pig as one in ''A Tad Of Christmas Cheer''. Averted with ''Numbers Ahoy!''. And then zig-zagged back with the ''Scout and Friends'' [=DVDs=]
* TheOtherDarrin: Most of the core characters have at least changed voice actors once. Heck, Even Scout and Violet aren't voiced by Ibsen where the [=DVDs=] are concerned.
* SliceOfLife: The ''Scout and Friends'' titles.
* ThemeTuneRollCall: "I'm with You, Scout!" in the ''Scout and Friends'' titles
** ''Numbers Ahoy'': with the biggest shark of 3; at the end of their song the biggest shark makes a big smile and swims toward the camera it's teeth fill up the screen.
** Scout does it at the start of the "Being a Puppy" song.
* WholePlotReference: Attempted in ''Learn To Read At The Storybook Factory'' with ''Literature/ThreeLittlePigs''
* YouTalkinToMe: In A ''Tad of Christmas Cheer'', Tad tells his fairy godbug Edison that he's cuckoo and Parker asks him "Are you talkin' to me? Well, I don't see nobody else, so you must be talkin' to me." He says that he's talking to Edison and at that point, Edison reveals that nobody else can see him. "That's probably not good," deadpans Tad.
* ThatRemindsMeOfASong: Pretty much every now and then in the [=DVDs=].
