* EarWorm: The "Music/SchnappiDasKleineKrokodil" song, which made it's debut appearance on the show before becoming a nationwide phenomenon, and later snowballed into a worldwide phenomenon by means of MemeticMutation.
* IconicCharacterForgottenTitle: The show's original title was ''Lach- und Sachgeschichten für Fernsehanfänger'' (roughly: ''Laughter- and Non-Fiction-Stories for TV-Newbies''). But after the orange mouse was introduced, everyone called it just "the programme with the mouse". [[ArtifactTitle (The "Lach- und Sachgeschichten"-part of the old title is still present in the title segment though)]].
* PeripheryDemographic: The average fan may be as old as the show...
* [[SamusIsAGirl Samus is a Mouse]]: Still lacking WordOfGod. The mouse is female by German grammatic gender default, but other than she once wore a robe, we don't have any information. (Same for elephant and duck.)
* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: This show is also very popular amongst adults. Partly because they know the show from their own childhood, partly because, hey, where else will you get the production of an airplane or a food product explained that comprehensibly?
** The popularity of the educational segments led to a SpinOff which featured only a selection of them (probably because the [[TastesLikeDiabetes cutesy shorts]] didn't appeal as much to the PeripheryDemographic).
