''PB&J Otter'' (1998-2000) is an American animated series created by Jim Jinkins of ''{{Doug}}'' fame. The show centralizes on its three otter siblings, Peanut, Butter and Jelly, who live with their parents on Lake Hoohaw, where everyone lives on a houseboat. Each show presents a problem which the otters solve after doing the "Noodle Dance". The show lasted for three seasons on [[Creator/DisneyChannel Playhouse Disney]]. Repeat broadcasts in the United States on Disney Junior began on Tuesday, September 4, 2012.
----
!!Tropes present:
* AcrophobicBird: Flick can fly, he's just afraid of heights. He eventually gets over this in order to grant the wish of a new friend during the Hoohaw Hoo.
* AgonyOfTheFeet: In "Ducking Out on Valentine's Day," after claiming he's glad there's apparently no Valentine for him from the Snooties, Flick kicks one of the Valentine crates, hops while clutching his foot, and then claims he's [[IHaveToGoIronMyDog late for his foot doctor's appointment.]]
* AllJustADream: "Leave it to Munchy" in the third season of the program.
** OrWasItADream: The penultimate scene of [[spoiler:Mayor Jeff just departing in the submarine in Munchy's dream, in real life]] in the episode sets off the aforementioned MindScrew.
* AllThatGlitters: Peanut gets a new pair of Airplane Shoes in "These Shoes Are Made For Walking" but goes back to his old ones by the end of the episode.
* ApologizesALot: Scootch
* AreYouPonderingWhatImPondering: Jelly in "Babbleberry Day," and certainly in other episodes, to the point of a RunningGag. In the aforementioned story, after she gets the idea to help with babbleberry picking:
-->'''Jelly''': Are you thinkin' what I'm thinkin'?
-->'''Peanut''': How cool it would be to have central hot chocolate?
-->'''Jelly''': No!
* ArgumentOfContradictions: In "Kid Court," Peanut, Jelly, and Baby Butter are having an argument over which of them should get to watch their favorite TV show. They decide to have Pinch solve as a judge in a mock court and Peanut has Flick testify on his behalf. Flick says that Pinch must rule in Peanut's favor because of Peanut's Law, which states "that if your name is Peanut and the ring toss relays are on, then you get to watch them." Jelly protests that Flick is making that up. "Am not!" "Are too!" "Am not a hundred times." "Are too a hundred times infinity!" "Ooh, she's good."
* ArgumentumAdNauseam: In "Kid Court," Baby Butter's side of the case in the KangarooCourt held to determine which TV show should be watched consists simply of her shouting out the name of her favorite show, ''Baby Lovey'', over and over.
* BalloonBelly: Jelly imagines herself with one in "Otter in the Water".
* BaseballEpisode: "Mama Peanut" has Peanut playing baseball with Munchy and Flick.
* BathsAreFun: "Tub 'O Butter" had Peanut and Jelly in the bath singing about how fun it was. Then, however, their little sister Baby Butter didn't want to take a bath, so they had to find a creative way to make it fun for her. They eventually managed it by getting her to take a bath in a tub that was being used to hold potatoes.
* BindleStick: When Flick fantasizes about running away in "Ducking Out On Valentine's Day," there is one sitting next to him in the train he's riding on.
* BlatantLies: "How many times have I told you? I'll use my noodle, but I'm ''not'' dancing."
* BodyPocket: Ernest finds a missing walkie talkie in his "pocket" in the episode "Trading Places."
* ABoyAGirlAndABabyFamily: Peanut, Baby Butter and Jelly Otter
* BucketHelmet: Johnny Pompalope (the Lake Hoohaw equivalent of Johnny Appleseed) in "The Johnny Pompalope Story".
* BusyBeaver: Munchy is a beaver who will eat anything made out of wood. This has both put him into and helped him out of jams, such as the episode where he accidentally ate Pinch's dollhouse, but later rebuilt it.
* TheBully: The kids of Lake Hoohaw cast Flick's cousin Billy as this after he told them a story about how once, when he was really young, Billy sat on him for four whole minutes. This was exaggerated in re-tellings to four whole hours and later four whole days. They even made up a song about it - "Big, Bad Billy the Duck." After Billy came to visit, the truth came out - one time Flick insisted on trying to give Billy a piggyback ride over Billy's objections and Billy fell on top of him and Flick was squooshed for something like five seconds. Flick had remembered it all wrong.
* CatchPhrase: "Oodelay!"
** Peanut: "I'll use my noodle, but I'm not dancing." *starts dancing*
** Flick: "Ah, cheese and quackers!"
** Scootch: "Sorry, sorry, my fault."
** Cap'n Crane: "(''honk'') Watchbird alert! Watchbird alert!"
* ChirpingCrickets: Flick gets this after his performance of "Talkin' About Hoohaw Lake" in "The Singin' Kid." "Tough crowd."
** Happens again in "Munchy's Sinking Feeling" when Flick tells his lame jokes to try to cheer Munchy up.
** Jelly gets this in "Hope Castle" when Flick says that they'll defend it against wild creatures and she comments "Even it means sacrificing our lives in cruel and painful ways."
* ChristmasSpecial: Though as is often the case with shows like this, they called it something else-- "Hoohaw Hoo" in this case.
** YouMeanXmas
* CloudCuckoolander: Cap'n Crane "Watchbird alert! Watchbird alert! (''insert ridiculous statement'')"
* CollectorOfTheStrange: Mayor Jeff collects toilet seat covers and seems a ''tad'' too obsessed with them.
** Apparenly Mayor Jeff really likes bathroom fixtures because another episode shows his house-boat being full of sinks.
* TheCameo: In an episode of Pinky Dinky Doo, Ootsie and Bootsie have cameos in dog cages. Porkchop and Stinky from {{Doug}}, and Harry, Dennis and Elsie from {{Stanley}} have cameos as well m
* [[CoolUncle Cool Aunt]]: Aunt Nanner, who is a very cool aunt to Peanut, Baby Butter and Jelly. Around the end of the series, she gets married to Redolfo, who is rather cool in his own right.
* CrazyEnoughToWork: Jelly's reaction to Peanut's suggestion in "Three's a Crowd" that Mama will have time to pay attention to them if they help her take care of the Muskrat babies.
* CryingWolf: "The Duck Who Cried Wolf." Also, in "Come Back, Little Monster," the other kids accuse Jelly of this because she said there was a monster, but they didn't see it. Jelly was telling the truth, at least about seeing what she thought was a monster, though it turned out to actually be a manatee (an anthropomorphic manatee, like the other anthro characters).
* DeadpanSnarker: Connie Crane. She's aware her husband, Cap'n, is an idiot at times, and just has fun with it.
* DisappearedDad: Flick has no father shown on the program. His Dad never even gets a mention.
** Additionally, Munchy's father has been mentioned several times but is never seen. It's implied that his parents are divorced (another character comments that Munchy's dad doesn't live with them anymore.)
* DiurnalNocturnalAnimal: Straight with all of the Raccoon family members except Mr. Raccoon, who works on the recycling boat at night and sleeps during the day
* DotingParent and ParentalObliviousness: Flick's mom, who has no idea how to handle this willful, mischievous child
* EasilyForgiven: "Butter Tags Along" shows Flick constantly complaining about Butter's presence on the kids' "trip around the world." Naturally she forgives him rather quickly.
* EdibleThemeNaming: The first name of the titular characters.
* EfficientDisplacement:
** PB&J and Flick imagine Simon doing this twice in the snow when they come up with ideas of how to make him fly in "The Ice Moose"
** In "Thanks For the Giggle Melon" the characters leave imprints of their bodies when they lay in the snow.
* EnfantTerrible: A mild example with Flick Duck. Flick generally behaves very sweetly and nicely around adults, with "Yes, sir" and "No, ma'am" and all of that, but often gets up to mischief the second he's out of their sight, or at least he thinks he is. He's not without a conscience, though, and can also sometimes be genuinely friendly and nice.
* EverybodyLaughsEnding: With a fair bit of regularity, particularly if the story itself was mainly humorous in nature.
* [[FacePalm Facewing]]: Connie Crane in "I'll Be Your Best Friend" when her husband falls into the lake after craning to get a look at Bucky Spacebeaver's showboat; Flick later on in the same story after Munchy brings Peanut a chocolate-and-tuna flavored cake and he realizes he's just been outclassed.
* FantasticFlora: Numerous, including babbleberries, pompalopes, pompanuts and giggle melons. Most of these are just fantasy equivalents of real-world plants, but the giggle melons actually make you giggle when you eat them.
* FantasticRacism: In "Follow Your Nose," when Flick is afraid of a family of mole people
-->'''Flick''': Ah, cheese and quackers. Don't you know about '''''moles'''''?
-->'''Peanut''': [[ComicallyMissingThePoint Sure we did. Dad's got a big one right on the back of his...]]
-->'''Flick''': No! Not that kind of mole. I'm talking about ''real'' moles!
-->'''Peanut and Jelly''': ''[[EskimosArentReal Real]]'' moles?
-->'''Flick''': They're these strange creatures that make dark tunnels under the earth. They're martial arts experts and they carry these numchucky stick weapon thingies. ... Moles wear these dark glasses. That proves they're hiding something... Moles can't stand ducks. Or otters.
* FantasyHelmetEnforcement
* {{Forgiveness}}: Seen in the story "Forgive Me Not" in which Jelly learns to forgive her best friend Pinch for ripping her cape
* FriendlyTickleTorture: "Butter's First Check-Up" has various characters getting tickled throughout as part of a game.
* FurryConfusion: Flick is a talking, anthropomorphic duck but there are plenty of non-sentient birds on the series.
* FurryReminder: The characters behave mostly like humans, but there are reminders such as Munchy having a fondness for wood and the poodles sometimes speaking to each other in their own bark-like language.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: In "Bubbles' Beginnings" the fish (originally belonging to Ootsie and Bootsie) runs away to PB&J. When they're told by their parents that they have to give them back, Peanut responds with a euphemism for the F bomb.
-->'''Peanut''': Even if Ootsie and Bootsie don't give a flip about Bubbles?
* GirlyGirl: Pinch. Oh man, Pinch. Pink dresses, playing dolls and tea party...
* GladIThoughtOfIt: Flick in "Soap-Box Derby Day" after Peanut decides that the kids should have a soap box derby race. Almost certainly plenty of other instances as well, for example, this gem from "Gotta Dance:"
-->'''Cap'n Crane''': Watchbird alert! Watchbird alert! Wanda Raccoon just dropped all the pies into Lake Hoohaw. Hoo hoo. Connie, what are they going to do now?
-->'''Connie Crane''': I guess they could think of another kind of contest.
-->'''Cap'n Crane''': I've got it! They could think of another kind of contest! (''Connie looks aggrieved.'')
* GuiltyPleasures: After Peanut and Jelly agree to let Baby Butter watch her favorite show, ''Baby Lovey'', in "Kid Court," Flick falls in love with the show.
* HalloweenEpisode: Yep.
* HeyThatsMyLine: In "Otter in the Water", Jelly doubles this trope after Peanut suggests a Noodle Dance:
-->'''Jelly''': Wait a minute. That's my line. What happened to Mr. Don't Want to Dance?
* HomeschooledKids: None of the kids are shown attending school at all, nor is a school ever even mentioned , even though the program depicts a SliceOfLife focused mostly on kids that are aged from around 3 to 8. Therefore, it seems likely that they're homeschooled and/or self-taught and the reason it's never mentioned is the media taboo on homeschooling. (The company that created this show would later created a Christian program called ''[=HoopDogz=]'' for direct-to-DVD, though Otter never featured overtly Christian messages, but still the types of Aesops that many Christians [and many good people in general] would agree with.)
* ICantDance: Peanut in "Gotta Dance." "I can't dance! I'm gonna look goofy!"
* IdeaBulb: Always seen at the end of a "Noodle Dance" when a character gets an idea.
* IdleRich: Possibly both Mr. and Mrs. Snootie, who seem to have no regular jobs. Mr. Snootie likes to bid people good-bye by telling them to "Have a rich day!"
** Mr. Snootie works for Mr. Big Dog, who nearly buys up all the properties on Lake Hoohaw in the GrandFinale. Mr. Snootie doesn't see any problem with this because he enthusiastically tells all his friends that they'll be richer if they accept Mr. Big Dog's terms. In the end, Mr. Big Dog comes to appreciate Lake Hoohaw the way it is and doesn't drain the lake or force anyone to move. It's heavily implied in that episode that Mr. Snootie and Mr. Big Dog are both in real estate and/or land development.
* IllBeYourBestFriend: This is the plot of a story on the show by the same name. The story features both Flick Duck and Munchy Beaver using this tactic on Peanut Otter to try to get his extra ticket to a radio show, endlessly trying to do his chores and give him favors to get the ticket in question.
* ImaginaryFriend: Baby Butter has her "Buddy" in "Sherlock Otter," Jelly had an invisible octopus friend named Bobo when she was about Butter's age.
* {{Jerkass}}: Flick at times - his mother, a single mother for unknown reasons, is out of her league and has no idea how to handle him.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Flick's conscience will often compel him to apologize for misbehaving. He's also been shown to display random acts of kidness such as rescuing Butter's favorite balloon, congratulating [[TheRival Jelly]] for winning a singing contest, and trying his hardest to grant a younger child's holiday wishes.
* KangarooCourt: In "Kid Court," one was held to determine whether Peanut or Jelly would get to watch their favorite TV show, with Pinch as the judge. She ruled that their arguing was annoying her so much that she was throwing them both in jail until they could learn how to work out their problems civilly. Also comes complete with Peanut attempting to bribe Judge Pinch.
* JustAKid: Invoked by Peanut, Munchy and Flick in "Mama Peanut" when a baby turtle keeps following Peanut and calling him "mommy." They sing a song about how they're all just kids. Peanut eventually goes off on the little turtle, only to then feel guilty. He apologizes and tells him that though he can't be his mommy, he can be his friend. At the end of the episode, Peanut asks his parents if it's okay for him to keep having fun being a kid as he grows bigger. They agree and a reprise of the song is performed.
* KidAppealCharacter: In a series already for children and featuring mostly children as the characters of Focus, Scootch
* {{Leitmotif}}: For the Snooties, a pompous theme with a classical feel to it
* LessEmbarrassingTerm: Peanut Otter doesn't have a Bucky Spacebeaver doll "It's an action figure!" And Ootsie and Bootsie don't have "dollies." They're "pillow poodles."
-->'''[[ArgumentOfContradictions Peanut and Jelly]]''': [[ArgumentOfContradictions Dollies!]]
-->'''[[ArgumentOfContradictions Ootsie and Bootsie]]''': [[ArgumentOfContradictions Pillow Poodles!]]
** Flick does this at the end of "Flick's Big Fakeout" after he is caught drawing a heart with a picture of himself inside it on Pinch's cast. "It's not a heart. It's a circle. See? It doesn't close in here." "It's a '''''heart'''''!"
* LyricalDissonance: Jelly singing about friends and family keep her strong and being true to herself at the same time she lets fame go to her head in "The Singin' Kid."
* MommasBoy: Munchy, and Flick, though he would never admit it. It's obvious, though, that his mother has decorated his room.
* TheMovingExperience: Seen in the premiere episode "Bye Bye, PB&J" with the Otters and then again in the third season with the Raccoons
* MusicalChores: Sometimes done
* NameAndName: Sort of.
* NeatFreak: The raccoons.
* NervousWreck: Munchy.
-->'''Munchy''': I'm so nervous! I'm so nervous! I've gotta go munch on a log.
* NeverSayDie: In "A Tree Grows in Lake Hoohaw," regarding the pompanut tree that Mayor Jeff planted. "The tree is very sick, and I don't think it's going to get better."
* NotNowKiddo: Baby Butter gets this at times.
* NotSoInnocentWhistle: Seen in "It's a Bird, It's a Plane... It's an Elephant?" Scootch gives one after Flick shoots him a dirty look for mocking him. Flick himself also gives one in the premiere episode "Bye Bye, PB&J."
* OncePerEpisode: The Noodle Dance, save for a few rare instances where it is used more than once.
* OneOfTheBoys: Baby Butter seems to prefer to hang with her brother and the boys rather more than Jelly and Pinch, and they've more or less come to accept her.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] by Peanut whenever he actually dances during a Noodle Dance willingly. "Well, this is an emergency."
* OutOfCharacterAlert: After Flick asks "Can't a duck get some peace and quiet?" in "Eye Spy," Jelly comments "Peace and quiet? You? Now I know something's wrong."
* OutOfOrder: Save original broadcasts, holiday or seasonal-themed episodes are aired out of order and this practice has continued on Disney Junior.
** In early November 2012, Disney Junior aired episodes of ''[[WesternAnimation/JakeAndTheNeverlandPirates Jake and the Neverland Pirates]]'' in the ''Otter'' timeslot with no explanation and little advance notice. When airings of ''Otter'' resumed, rather than airing the skipped episodes, they picked up exactly in the point of the continuation as if the previous airings hadn't been pre-empted. Fortunately, no major specials such as "Hope Castle" were skipped and the network doesn't show any signs of planning to discontinue airings of the program (the first season is on the schedule once the third ends), so hopefully those skipped installments will be picked up on the back-end.
* PictureDay: "Picture Perfect," the thrust of the story is Peanut and Jelly trying to keep Baby Butter from getting CoveredInMud. "We need good clean fun, three dirty little words! Good clean fun - words she's never really heard!"
* PlayfulOtter: The title characters regularly play together.
* PlaygroundSong: "John Jacob Jingle Otter Breath, his name is my name too!"
* ThePowerOfFriendship: Rather frequently.
* PrecociousCrush: Flick sometimes mentions Mia Lamb a NoCelebritiesWereHarmed soccer star. She actually visits towards the end of one episode (her former coach had gradually warmed up to the Otter family's hospitality and he gets Mia to come along, too.) Flick faints the instant he recognizes her.
* PrimalFear: In "Follow Your Nose," Jelly is afraid of going into dark underground tunnels, but the Moles help her to get over it by showing her how to navigate using senses other than vision.
* QuoteMine: The Snootie children pull this in "Invitation to the Snooties" to trick their father into agreeing that they can have a twenty-eight foot ice-cream frog that croaks "Yankee Doodle" for their party.
-->'''Eduard''': Who ordered that? Huh?
-->'''Bootsie''': You told us we could have it, Daddy. Don't you remember?
-->'''Bootsie''' (''on tape'') Can we have a giant 28-foot ice cream frog?
-->'''Ootsie''': That sings "Yankee Doodle"?
-->'''Eduard''': (''on the tape, but from a conversation he had with someone else over the phone'') Absolutely, that's a capital idea. (''to Ootsie and Bootsie'') Huh, well, so I did.
* ReadingIsCoolAesop: Possibly [[EnforcedTrope enforced]], as if the characters were seen reading anything, it was usually comic books, but an episode late in the show's run had them singing about how great reading adventure books was.
* RhymingWithItself: The "Good Clean Fun" song in "Picture Perfect" has "Some routine that is clean / And our clothes not wrinkled / We can stay all pressed and pure / And we won't get wrinkled."
* RichBitch: Literally with the female members of the Snootie family, who all happen to be poodles.
* RichBoredom: The Snootie kids so much - despite all of their fancy toys, they're often bored to tears.
* RichInDollarsPoorInSense: The Snootie Poodles, often. The Snootie children are so spoiled that by afternoon they consider new toys they got that morning "old."
* RunningGag: After a Noodle Dance, one of the characters makes an impractical suggestion often relying on some sort of technology they don't have:
-->'''Jelly''': We get us a time machine, and we go back in time...
-->'''Peanut''': Jelly! You have a time machine, and you didn't tell me about it!?
** A character gets hit in the face with food or drink or is splashed. Happens at least twice in the opening sequence, but also happens throughout the series. Scootch is a likely culprit, but anyone could be guilty.
* ScareDare: A dark cave that Peanut and Flick go into after Flick issues a "Double Duck Dare"
* ScreenTap: In the "Tippecanoe and Tickle Me Too" song in "Baby Butter's First Checkup," the otters three tickle the screen.
** Could also be a form of BreakingTheFourthWall.
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney: The Snootie Poodles, sometimes. And screw politeness too, sometimes:
-->'''Eduardo Snootie''': Watch out, rich people coming through! Watch out!
* SecretIdentity: In his superhero fantasy sequence as "Glasses Boy" in "Eye Spy," Flick has one as a rich boy in a mansion with a butler.
* SecurityBlanket: Butter had her "bankie."
* ShipTease: Pinch Raccoon and Flick Duck
* ShowWithinAShow: Plenty, as the characters regularly watch television and read books/comic books
* ShrinkRay: After a Noodle Dance in "Bye Bye Bubbles," Jelly has an ImagineSpot in which she uses one of these to shrink away Lake Hoohaw so she and Peanut can find Bubbles.
* SomeCallMeTim: In "Come Back, Little Monster," when Jelly finally meets the manatee properly, he tells her that his name is (''makes screechy manatee noises'') but says to call him Kevin.
* SpeciesSurname: Everyone except for the Snooties, who are poodles, but have "Snootie" as their last name. They are sometimes referred to as the "Snootie Poodles," though.
* SpiritedCompetitor: Flick
* SpoofAesop: Seen at the end of "Special Delivery" and possibly other stories as well
** [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] by Peanut and Jelly in "The Duck Who Cried Wolf" after their Mom reads them and Flick the tale of ''The Boy Who Cried Wolf''. Flick gets the correct aesop, then spends most of the remainder of the episode showing that he didn't actually understand it.
* StartMyOwn: In "You Can't Come In," everyone decides to build their own clubhouse.
* StockAesops: Any number not already mentioned, including "All that glitters is not gold," "Follow your dreams," "Don't be shy," "The grass is always greener on the other side..." and more.
* StockNessMonster: In "Come Back, Little Monster," when Jelly is trying to convince her friends that the really is a monster, she takes a blurry picture of Pippin (a manatee, and the supposed "monster") that bears a resemblance to typical photos of the Loch Ness Monster.
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: Flick in "Eye Spy." "It's not like I'm different or anything."
* SweetHomeAlabama: Although the program is never stated to be anywhere other than [[WhereTheHellIsSpringfield "Lake Hoohaw,"]] many of the characters speak with a southern United States sort of accent and advocate a style of life that seems to match very closely with the best ideals of Southern hospitality. Additionally, much the show's music, particularly the instrumental cues, has a southern twang to it.
* TagalongKid: Baby Butter, sometimes. One of the show's stories is called "Butter Tags Along."
* TeamSpirit: Often comes up, and one of the stories has a song about it. "With a little bit of teamwork we can make this dream work out / Lots of hands make light work, that's what teamwork's all about."
* TellHimImNotSpeakingToHim: Jelly and Pinch put Peanut in the middle of this in "The Silent Treatment," to the point where he collapses on the ground from tiredness of running back and forth between them.
* TemptingFate: Peanut in "Mega Melon" right before the pompalope bursts, likely in other installments as well
* ThatCloudLooksLike: Peanut and Jelly in the opening of "It's a Bird, It's a Plane... It's an Elephant?" and the basis of the song "Imaginings."
* ThatMakesMeFeelAngry: Suggested to Munchy by his mother when he keeps his feelings to himself in "Be Nice to Beavers Day."
* ThatRemindsMeOfASong: At least twice an episode (one episode is divided into two story segments), often more. {{Very Special Episode}}s may have up to 8 songs within a half-hour span. This ''is'' a ''very musical'' show.
* ThemeNaming: Peanut, Butter and Jelly. Beyond that, the theme breaks down.
** Pinch and Scooch are named for informal recipe instructions (such as 'add a pinch of sugar, and a scooch of cinnamon.')
* TheOneWhoWearsShoes: Not just the three otter kids, but nearly about ''all'' the animals here wear shoes -- just not clothes.
* ThirdPersonPerson: Pinch in her role as Judge Pinch in "Kid Court." And Baby Lovey in the TV show that Baby Butter watches in this episode.
* TitleDrop: Episode title - "Hope Castle"
-->'''Jelly''': I know! How about Hope Castle?
-->'''Peanut''': What made you think up that name, Jel?
-->'''Jelly''': Well, I just hope this castle stays around longer than the last one!
* TitleThemeTune: Well, not the whole title, but "PB&J" is repeated a number of times.
* ToiletHumor: Too much. Espicially for the shows haters.
** In "Watchbird Alert", Cap'n Crane: "And here's a hankie, in case you get a booger."...gets some giggles from Peanut and Butter from saying this
** "The Thing That Almost Ate Hoohaw" has a running gag with Flick getting a wedgie.
** In "Three's a Crowd", Opal says she has to [[TooMuchInformation change a "poopy diaper."]]
** In "Gizmotronictron Raffle"
-->'''Munchy''': What's a poop deck?
-->'''Flick''': Don't ask.
* TookALevelInKindness: Flick Duck. He starts out as deliberately mischievous, teasing Jelly about her inability to swim, daring Peanut to go into a spooky cave, and making up stories just because he can. Gradually, Flick learns to treat his friends better [[CharacterDevelopment and the lesson sticks.]] He offers sincere congratulations to Jelly in "The Singin' Kid", apologizes when one of his stories scares baby Butter, is more willing to listen to Peanut's suggestions, and even stands up to Mr. Big Dog when the entire community is in danger of being sold and destroyed.
* {{Trope 2000}}: Ootsie and Bootsies' toys are often named in this manner. Additionally, they sometimes say that they have "Version 2000" of something and that it's "twice as good as version 1000." Mayor Jeff's "Gizmotronictron" is also named in this manner.
* UnmanlySecret: Both Peanut and Munchy refer to their Bucky Spacebeaver toys as "action figures" instead of "dolls" to try to preserve their perceived manliness. Additionally, Flick Duck tends to behave very secretively about any behaviors or hobbies of his that would be perceived as girlish or too childlike.
* UnwantedGlassesPlot: Inverted with Flick in "Eye Spy"; he's worried everyone will think he looks dumb in his glasses, but nobody cares.
* UnwantedRescue: Peanut, Jelly, and Baby Butter refuse a rescue by "Glasses Boy" in Flick's fantasy sequence in "Eye Spy" - they want to be rescued by a "real superhero."
* VerySpecialEpisode: Three in season 2, three in season 3. Easily distinguishable in that it is a half-hour episode and has up to four times more songs than regular episodes.
** "Follow Your Nose" was written in part with the consultation of the American Council for the Blind and features comics in Braille and characters learning how to navigate using senses other than vision.
* WellSeeAboutThat: Flick Duck in "World's Strongest otter."
-->'''Flick''': Peanut Otter? Lake Hoohaw's strongest kid? We'll just see about that!
* YouGetMeCoffee: When Flick is appointed "Kid Mayor" of Lake Hoohaw, he appoints Peanut, Baby Butter and Jelly as his assistants and makes his first order to them to get him food.
* YoungestChildWins: Baby Butter gets an entire celebration to herself when she finds a piece of jewelry Mrs. Snootie lost on the beach. [[CantGetAwayWithNuthin Her siblings get grounded on the same day.]] There's also the fact that Butter rang the bell and helped Mrs. Raccoon avoid a boating accident, and that she befriended the lighting bugs that helped the Otter family get home when it was otherwise too foggy to see. For a 2-year-old, she's very resourceful.
* ZanyScheme: Plenty of them.
