''Tappy Toes'' is an obvious knockoff of ''WesternAnimation/HappyFeet'' ...up to a point.

Other than the fact that it's about a penguin learning to dance, the plot is somewhat different from ''Happy Feet'', as it mostly deals with evil sea lions (which came from a minor plot point in Happy Feet).

The animation is done by Renegade Animations; you might be familiar with their work on ''WesternAnimation/TheMrMenShow'', ''WesternAnimation/HiHiPuffyAmiYumi'' and ''WesternAnimation/ChopKickPanda''.
!!Tappy Tropes:

* UsefulNotes/AdobeFlash
* CoversAlwaysLie: Like with Back to the Sea, the cover depicts the film as CGI. Where in reality, it's done in flash.
* TheEeyore: Pingo's dad, Ozzie. Even to the point he didn't cheer his wife after Pingo was kidnapped.
-->'''Gerty:''' Do you think maybe there's some way, somehow it survived?
-->'''Ozzie:''' No, Gerty. No, I don't.
-->''WebVideo/{{Bobsheaux}}:''' Wow, way to keep her spirits up, you douche-noodle.
* {{Lampshading}}: Does this several times.
* MockBuster
* MoreThanMeetsTheEye: Downplayed. As stated before, the plot is different compared to ''Happy Feet''. It does recycle a lot (but not all) of the tropes and characters used in Happy Feet, however. For example, there was an antagonistic pinniped in Happy Feet.
* ThoseTwoGuys: Buddy and Lou.
** ThoseTwoBadGuys: Gabby and Thrasher.
