'''''Pet Alien''''' (2005) is an AllCGICartoon cartoon that follows the life of young man Tommy Cadle and his alien houseguests Dinko, ExtremeOmnivore Gumpers, DeadpanSnarker Swanky, CloudCuckoolander Flip and TeamPet Scruffy. A total of 22 episodes were produced, though a number of them were left unaired in the original broadcast.

----
!!This show provides examples of:
* AchievementsInIgnorance: One possible explanation for the MindScrew below, as Swanky called Dinko and Gumpers nincompoops for it.
* ButtMonkey: Tommy, Granville, and Swanky
* CanisLatinicus
* TheCatCameBack: It's impossible to get rid of Gabby. One time Dinko and Gumpers clearly locked Gabby in a box but later when the box was opened [[MindScrew Swanky was somehow in there instead even though he was nowhere in sight when Gabby was put in the box]].
* CatchPhrase: Swanky has "nincompoops" and Granville has "this is all your fault Tommy Cadle"
* EatingShoes: Gumper eats everything, including shoes.
* EurekaMoment / GeniusDitz: Gumpers can come up some good ideas sometimes. He just has to really strain his brain to do it.
* FictionIsntFair
* GirlishPigtails: Gabby
* HeyItsThatVoice: Jess Harnell, Candi Milo and Charlie Adler
* IdiosyncraticWipes
* {{Meganekko}}: Gabby
* MistakenNationality: Despite being obviously English, Granville is often mistaken for being Norwegian.
* RantInducingSlight: Dinko does not like being called by the wrong name, in 'the thing that took tommy's brain' Dinko lets off an absolutely terrific rant after being called 'thinko' by the amnesiac Tommy.
* RealAfterAll: Some episodes ended like this. Like the one where the aliens thought balloons were other aliens.
* RichBitch: Melba
* TheScapegoat: Characters would always blame Tommy for things that obviously weren't his fault.
* SquareCubeLaw: In an episode where [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever Tommy becomes giant size,]] he's much slower and tires out much more quickly.
* StalkerWithACrush: Gabby for Tommy.
* SurroundedByIdiots: Swanky
* WeirdnessCensor: No one realises Tommy's friends are aliens even though they don't wear disguises. They just call them his friends or his "things".
