* AwesomeMusic: The Big-Band style theme song. [[EarWorm It will NEVER get out of your head either]].
* {{Earworm}}: The show's theme song. But in other cases, there are a lot of people that find it incredibly annoying.
* GeniusBonus: In "The Corgin", Dave paints a green clog and calls it [[TrueArtIsIncomprehensible "Voices of Flame"]], an allusion to the similarly minimalist [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voice_of_Fire Voice of Fire]].
* GrowingTheBeard: The very early episodes weren't that impressive, but after a while the humor became more solid and characters were given more development. It's a shame Creator/CartoonNetwork gave up on it so quickly.
* MoralEventHorizon: Nestor crosses this in The Stackinator where he replaces Scaredy with a machine.
* MostAnnoyingSound: Scaredy [[{{Scatting}} scat-singing]] in the theme song can be grating on the ears.
* PopularWithFurries: Other than the few that remember this show out of nostalgia, the cast is a WorldOfFunnyAnimals, so there's bound to be a handful of furries that like the main characters for that.
* TheScrappy: Dave to an extent. Some of the writing in season two didn't help matters for his character.
* StupidSexyFlanders: Nestor, Full Stop.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: The "Scaredy Squirrel Safety Corner" segments are accompanied by an arrangement of "Theme to 'A Summer Place'". It also sounds similar to "Hey! Pachuco!" by Royal Crown Revue.
* TearJerker: The Stackinator episode where Scaredy gets replaced by a machine. In particular, the scene where he sits outside the store and lets a few tears roll down his face. He most definitely counts as TheWoobie after that episode. The end part where Scaredy and Dave melt the blocks of ice with their hugs is a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming.
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: A good number of people that hate this show hate it because it has nothing in common with the books it's based off. Ironically though, Melanie Watts, the person who wrote the books, contributed to the cartoon, helping with writing many of the episodes and other elements.
* TheyCopiedItSoItSucks: Most people that hate this show claim this show to be a rip-off of WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants because of how identical the characters are. But in reality, other than having the characters have ''somewhat'' similar personalities, the two cartoons don't have very much in common, as the character personalities are ''very'' different than the ones in Spongbob:
** Sure, the titular character, Scaredy, has a low-end job like Spongebob, but he also has a case of SuperOCD and he's not almost constantly in a positive mood.
** Dave is a little bit like Patrick, not being very bright and all that, but if he isn't usually by Scaredy, he's hanging around his job. And its also been shown that while he usually acts like an idiot, he does have quite a few moments of sanity. Some could even argue that he's smarter than Patrick.
** Furthermore, the Hungarian casting director managed to give Scaredy the same voice as [=SpongeBob=]!
* UglyCute: Dave. Just look at that soft, bushy, huggable tail of his. And he's a skunk!
** Chip the chubby-faced little squirrel in "Camp and Consequences".
* TheWoobie: Scaredy is one of these. Also Dave has his woobie-ish moments.
