!!This cartoon provides examples of:

* {{Adorkable}}: Two and Seven.
* AllAnimalsAreDogs: Belinda
* AnAesop: Every episode has one.
* AudienceSurrogate: Mary
* [[BarefootCartoonAnimal Barefoot Funny Monsters]]: One, Five, and sometimes Three.
* CastOfSnowflakes: The monsters look completely different to one another, despite being septuplets.
* CatchPhrase: "What are you supposed to be today, Three?"
** "Tell me you didn't just say (number)."
** "One of these days..."
* CuteLittleFangs
* DisappearedDad
* DomCom
* EdutainmentShow
* [[FriendToAllChildren Friends To All Children]]: The monsters can often be found playing with human kids and offering them fun experiences due to their great sizes.
* FromBadToWorse: Inverted with One's reasons to tell on her sibling during the campout in the episode ''I'm Telling!'' At first, One has good reasons to tell on them, like Four planning to have Seven climb up an incredibly unstable stack of books to reach an ENORMOUS suitcase for Six to pack a bunch of clothes that she does not need at all for one night in the backyard and use Five as a safety landing, and then Four planning to pack ''everything'' in the fridge to take to eat on the campout. But then she starts telling on them for smaller and smaller things like Four not sharing the snacks, Seven yelling at her when she tries to help, and Six sticking her tongue out at her. Mom even [[LampshadeHanging lampshades this:]]
-->'''Mom:''' (''sighs'') One..maybe these things are not all that serious being.
* FurryFemaleMane: Both One and Six have human-like hair despite being furry (although Six's face isn't). Three also has a mop of human-like hair, however, as do Two and Seven (though they don't look furry).
* {{Gentle Giant}}s: Quite literally.
* [[HalfDressedCartoonAnimal Half-Dressed Monsters]]: Three and Four. Three wears an oversized long sleeve while Four sports a yellow t-shirt and [[NiceHat purple top hat]].
* HotSkittyOnWailordAction: The monsters' mother is a human, so presumably their father is a monster - especially since their mother often points out that Two reminds her of him...
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Presumably the monsters' parents.
* HeyItsThatVoice: Two is [[WhoseLineIsItAnyway Colin Mochrie]] and Four [[TalkingToHimself (and Five and Seven)]] are [[JimmyTwoShoes Lucius Heinous VII]]
* InNameOnly: The monsters share the same names and basic designs from the original picture book by Maurice Sendak, but the series is otherwise unrelated to it.
* ItsAWonderfulPlot: Inverted in "It's A Wonder-Four Life". Four wishes he didn't have siblings, and is shown a world where he is an only child and [[ItsAllAboutMe everything is about him]]. After what should have been a perfect day for him, he winds up feeling lonely, which makes him appreciate his siblings more.
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: There's never been a full release of the series, and the episodes are incredibly hard to find online.
* LionsAndTigersAndHumansOhMy: Except they're monsters instead of anthropomorphic animals.
* LiteralMinded: Several characters have moments of this.
* MassiveNumberedSiblings: The titular seven monsters themselves.
* OurMonstersAreDifferent
* RunningGag: The monsters often get stuck in doorways.
* ShoutOut / ParentalBonus: Many of the personas that Three takes on each episode, from famous characters of older media like [[{{Literature/TwentyThousandLeaguesUnderTheSea}} Captain Nemo]], to real-life celebrities such as [[{{Series/TheTwilightZone}} Rod Serling]].
** In "Don't Pass Go" Seven's dream sequence is very similar to Film/TheWizardOfOz
-->'''Seven:''' You were there... and you... and you, and you were no help at all!
** In "Bang! Zoom! To the Moon!" the scene where Four tosses his blueprints into the air is very reminiscent of Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey.
* SickEpisode: Doctor, Doctor!
* SliceOfLife
* SuperStrength: They all posses this due to their size.
* TitleThemeTune: Performed by Music/BarenakedLadies at that! The only other words in the song besides the title are "They cause trouble, there they go!"
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: One and Six.
* TalkingToHimself: Four, Five and Seven
* UnexplainedAccent: Their mother is a FunnyForeigner, but the monsters speak clear English... Well, except [[TheUnintelligible Five]].
* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: Nobody bats an eyelid at a bunch of giagantic monsters running around.
* VengefulVendingMachine: Four tries his hardest to get a sheriff's badge from a prize machine, only for it to keep giving him princess crowns.
* WhosOnFirst: Because their names are numbers, this happens rather frequently.
* YellowEyesOfSneakiness: Subverted. They all have yellow eyes but none of them are particularly sneaky.
* YouAreNumberSix: The monsters are named from One to Seven.
