Tropes:

  • Animate Inanimate Object: Tong-Tong's grandfather clock.
  • Aww, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: Pororo and Crong in the end of episode, "It's My Toy". The two spent a majority of the episode fighting over Eddie's robot toy. Later Crong wanders off and Pororo tries looking for him as well. They soon are searching for each other. When they finally find each other, they embrace.
  • Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: This brief exchange in 'Stomach Ache":
    Pororo: (as Crong is in bed) Does your stomach hurt?
    Crong: (nods head) Crong...
    Pororo: Do you have a fever?
    Crong: (puts ice pack on his head, which melts)
    Pororo: Are you going to the bathroom a lot? note 
    Crong: (tearfully) Crong.
    Pororo: (closes book) Hmm! You have diarrhea!
  • Balloon Belly: In "Flying Poby", Poby gets inflated by Tong-Tong twice using magic when Tong-Tong tries to bring Poby down.
  • Barefoot Cartoon Animal: Most of the cast.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Tu Tu the car appears in season 4, but he never appears again after that for reasons unknown.
  • Everything's Better with Dinosaurs: Crong.
  • Everything's Better with Penguins
  • Fairytale Episode: "Petty Red Riding Hood"
  • Gass Hole: Poby gets a gas problem in "What's This Smell".
    • Poby also let some gas out in "Flying Poby" in order to deflate.
  • Hollywood Tone-Deaf: Harry the hummingbird.
  • Hypocritical Humor: In "I am Not A Bed Wetter", Pororo calls Crong out for not using the bathroom before bed, but Pororo does not do this either, and so he too gets a Potty Failure.
  • Jerk Ass: The fish in Learning How To Swim. The two even almost manage to drown Eddy. Thankfully, Pororo saves Eddy before he drowns.

  • Seldom-Seen Species: Eddy the fennec fox.
  • Sick Episode: Get Well Soon, Loopy, Eddy's Got the Cold and Stomach Ache.
  • Size Shifter: Played with for Tong-Tong. While he doesn't turn into a huge version of his normal form, he does shift into a large dragon when needed to transport to far places.

  • Theme Tune Cameo: The characters can sometimes be heard singing or humming the show's theme song.
