* AwesomeMusic: The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MQ6YvFC6czQ&feature=related opening theme]]. A cute song that makes you drop your guard from all the wackiness installed.
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NRUPEk-_JqE theme song]] from the remake. Perfect for any ADHD kids to sing along to.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Shortly after making his manga debut, Tsun Tsukutsun proved to be rather popular, especially with [[MrFanservice the girls]]. Though, having the ability to kick '''[[MemeticBadass Arale's]]''' ass when provoked kind of helps.
* IAmNotShazam: Nobody is named Dr. Slump. Senbei isn't even the main character, a fact lampshaded numerous times.
** Subverted in the unaired Harmony Gold English Dub where Senbei's name is changed to Dr. Slump.
* MoralEventHorizon: Dr. Mashirito crossed it twice. The first time was when he abandoned Obatchaman for being good, and the second one was when he tried to ''kill'' Senbei so way he'd never provide Arale and Obatchaman with Robo-vita-A.
* MorePopularSpinoff: DragonBall
* {{Squick}}: Suppaman eats ''poop''.
* TearJerker: The scene where [[spoiler: Arale realises that she will never grow up]] can be seen as this. Even if it lasts for few minutes, it can bring severe MoodWhiplash.
