->'''Turtle Tuck:''' "A baby animal! She's in trouble!"
->'''Ming-Ming Duckling:''' "This is ''[[SeriousBusiness serious!!!]]''"
->'''Linny Guinea Pig:''' "We have to help her!"

And pretty much every parent who watches television with their child could probably recite the rest by heart.

"Wonder Pets" is a NickJr series about three cute little baby animals who go on adventures to save other cute little baby animals. The animation is created with cut-out photographs and all the important dialogue is delivered operatically.

----
!!To the Tropeboat!
* AdultsAreUseless: While averted on a few occasions, most of the time the parents aren't attempting to save their children or aren't even worried about their children. Until a few moments after the Wonder Pets save their baby, where they thank the Wonder Pets and mention how worried they were.
* ArtisticLicenseBiology: Ducks and turtles don't urinate. At least, not the way the show portrays they do.
* AsideGlance: Linny always gives a wink to the audience at the end of each story.
* BeYourself: Tuck is told this when he wants to play with a pink toy car, but he's the only one. The lesson is later used to help a lion cub.
* BreadEggsBreadedEggs: The costume box sequence in Save the Nutcracker:
--> ''' Linny:''' I'm a mouse! \\
''' Tuck:''' I'm a king! \\
''' Ming - Ming:''' I'm a mouse king!
* CaptainErsatz: Ollie and his Thunder Pets.
* CartoonPhysics: The Wonder Pets' flyboat can go anywhere in the world in the time it takes for them to sing their "we're on our way" jingle. It can also magically enter picture books, dioramas, posters and other art projects in their schoolhouse.
** [[JustifiedTrope How else can the plot proceed in eleven minutes]]?
* CatchPhrase:
** "This is sewious!"
** "Good eye, Tuck!"
** "To the flyboat?" "To the flyboat!"
** CatchphraseInterruptus: Yes, thank you, Ollie, for trying to help.
* ChekhovsSkill: OnceAnEpisode, The Pets have to solve a minor problem before they can get on their way, and the method they use fits the needs of the larger quest with ''insane'' precision.
* ChristmasEpisode: Save The Nutcracker; Save the Reindeer. (Separate episodes)
** ThatRussianSquatDance: Called "The Bear Dance" here.
** AndThatsTerrible: This is Ming - Ming's attitude toward saving the reindeer, until she learns that Christmas is threatened, which naturally leads to...
** SavingChristmas
* CrossDressingVoices: Tuck is voiced by Teala Dunn.
* DevelopmentHell: The show has been quietly taking itself out of existence for a while. The supposed final episode of the show was broadcast in 2009, and the show stayed on for quite a while after. Then, in 2013, we finally get note of a new half-hour special featuring the characters.
* ElmuhFuddSyndwome: Ming-Ming. Well, she's about five. So it's not really her fault. It's also a ThrowItIn that carried over from the audition process.
* EndingTheme: An instrumental version of the leitmotif.
* {{Fanboy}}: Tuck exemplifies this in "Save the Honey Bears"
* FurryConfusion: In the circus episode.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: "Celewy is great after a good pee!" "You can say that again!"
** From "Save The Poodle!":
-->'''Linny:''' A french poodle is a type of dog whose hair has lots of poofies, and the Eiffel Tower is a tower that stands above the [[SlippingAMickey roofies]]!
* IAmNotWeasel:
** Linny, whenever anyone refers to her as simply "pig," or some other type of rodent, such as "hamster."
** Numerous eBay listings refer to Linny incorrectly as "hamster," "hampster," and even "hedgehog."
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Ollie is impolite and more than a little bit irritating during his appearances. This has the added affect of making his philosophies as unappealing as he himself is.
* [[MadLibsCatchPhrase Mad Libs Theme Tune]]: "Wonder Pets, Wonder Pets, we're on our way, to help a [insert imperiled animal here] and save the day..."
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: Tuck and both of the girls.
* MundaneMadeAwesome: For example, the song about celery is delivered with all the gravitas worthy of a Wagnerian epic.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: In one episode they saved a band of insect musicians called The Beetles. (Three of which were voiced by Lenie Colacino, one of the stars of the musical "Beatlemania.") In another episode they meet three rats named Sammy, Dino and Blue Eyes. And in one episode they rescue a hound dog whose father is a canine version of Elvis Presley. These also count as ParentalBonus.
* OnceAnEpisode: Being a kid's show, it happens a lot.
* PottyEmergency: "There's a puppy, and he has to pee-pee, but he can't... because he's stuck in the house!"
* PowerTrio: Linny (ego), Tuck (superego), and Ming-Ming (id).
* RegularCaller: "The phone, the phone is ringing!" "The phone, we'll be wight there!"
* [[SeriousBusiness Sewious Business]]: Ming-Ming's stock in trade. Eventually parodied during an episode where they need to give a baby blowfish the encouragement to [[StealthPun go to preschool]].
-->"This isn't sewious!"\
"But-we-still-have-to help him!"
* ShoutOut: To Music/TheBeatles, FiddlerOnTheRoof, and the RatPack, to name but a very few. Also double as a ParentalBonus.
* SickEpisode: Linny in "Save the Mouse".
* TheStoic: Linny, who almost manages to remain unflappable no matter how badly her teammates might behave, particularly Ming-Ming
* StrawCharacter: Ollie, whether it was deliberate or not. In one memorable episode, Ollie gloats about how he can solve the problem of the week by himself, only to wind up making the situation worse as a result of attempting the mission solo. Cue the trio gloating at his expense.
* StrictlyFormula: "Save the Duckling!", "Save the Nutcracker!" and "Save the Rat Pack!" all subvert this.
* SugarBowl: The Wonder Pets' world is teeming with cute overload, and the animals are mostly of the cute and fuzzy kind.
* SuperheroSpeciation: To a ridiculous degree. You know as well as we do that baby ducks are born swimmers, but because Tuck Turtle is already the Designated Swimmer, Ming-Ming is the team's resident... flyer. Because ducklings can fly. Before they know how to swim. Sure.
* TertiarySexualCharacteristics: An aversion, which is where the ViewerGenderConfusion comes from. Baseball caps are the usual "male" signifier, but Linny is female and has one.
* TheLoad: Ollie the Rabbit, who is guaranteed to either screw up the rescue when he comes along and/or require rescuing himself. He's also a {{Jerkass}}. Notably, Ollie tends to attempt things on his own ''before'' he screws things up and/or requires rescuing. One wonders if he was deliberately thrown in to reinforce the show's Aesop.
* ThemeTune: Oddly separate from the actual theme song, which is actually the EndingTheme and leitmotif
* ThePowerOfFriendship: "What's gonna work? Teeeeeeamwork!"
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: "Let's celebrate with some celery!" And apparently every species loves celery.
* TeamHandStack: After every rescue.
