''The Mysteries of Alfred Hedgehog'' is an animated children's series originating in Canada and France that explores science and nature with critical thinking and pro bono detective work. It takes place in a small town carved out of a forest known as Gnarly Woods, and involves a trio of pre-adolescents trying to solve the mysteries surrounding strange events. Alfred keeps a cool head and figures it all out logically, while Milo adds entertainment by being panicky and believing in the unnatural. Camille balances out the two boys. Viewers learn about natural phenomena through this show.

** Subverted a few times when the answers come from books, or from other characters.

* StealthPun: Mrs. Radley lives in a creepy house. I wouldn't be surprised if she had a son or grandson named Boo.
** Given that the title of the episode where she's discovered refers to "Boo Radley's House", it's likely that her husband was named Boo.
*** Or that she had earned the nickname at some point in the past.

** a mystery that needs investigating.
** clues to determine why the mystery occurred.
** a review of the clues that make up the solution to the mystery.
** Three clues shalt thou collect, and the number of the clues collected shall be three. Four clues shalt thou not collect, nor collect thou two, unless proceeding directly to three. Five is right out.
*** Subverted a few times, when the clues are insufficient to solve the case. Or when a clue turns out not to be a real clue.
