'''Basic Trope''': A TV show has a moral tacked on.
* '''Straight''': At the end of an episode of ''Timmy's World O' Fun'', Timmy learns not to judge people by the color of their skin.
* '''Exaggerated''':
** Timmy learns a lesson every episode.
** Everyone on that episode of ''Timmy's World O' Fun'' learns a different lesson.
** Everyone learns a lesson in every episode of ''Timmy's World O' Fun''.
** The moral lesson is [[{{Anvilicious}} made extremely loud and obvious]].
** People have been incessantly given lessons, no exceptions. Even when they're resting in their beds.
* '''Downplayed''': Every season of the show includes a lesson learned.
* '''Justified''': Hey, [[SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped teaching people to not be prejudiced is a very important thing]].
* '''Inverted''':
** The lesson comes at the beginning of the episode, and the show is based on trying to prove that it's a good lesson.
** Alternatively, Timmy learns that [[FamilyUnfriendlyAesop judging people by the color of their skin is a great way of measuring someone's character.]]
* '''Subverted''':
** It seems like the show is building towards the traditional "don't judge others" Aesop, but the last few minutes of the show trail off into a different direction.
-->'''Alice:''' "Timmy, didn't you learn something today?"
--> '''Timmy:''' "Nope."
* '''Double Subverted''':
** Only to firmly veer back into Aesop territory.
** Then a horde of AlwaysChaoticEvil orcs raids the school, and all humans, white, black and green team up, apply the PowerOfLove, and the trope is justified.
* '''Parodied''': SpoofAesop
* '''Zig Zagged''': The show can't seem to decide whether it wants to teach a lesson or not.
* '''Averted''': There are no Aesops of any kind. After all, there is more to life than just learning an Aesop.
* '''Enforced''': The [=FCC=] mandates a certain amount of educational programming.
* '''Lampshaded''': "Gather round, kids, it's time for Timmy [=McCarthy's=] ''Lesson Of The Day''!"
* '''Invoked''': Timmy's parents orchestrate the events of the episode specifically so that Timmy will learn a lesson.
* '''Exploited''': Every time he gets caught doing something bad, Timmy pretends he's learned his lesson to play on the sympathy of his tutors and brings up every time he does something bad.
* '''Defied''': Timmy refuses to learn any lessons.
* '''Discussed''': "Timmy, why do you seem to learn some [[CaptainObviousAesop obvious lesson]] every week?"
* '''Conversed''': "Shows like that always have some kind of moral at the end."
* '''Deconstructed''': At first, it would be your usual moral that people are supposed to know. Then people realized that it's insultingly simple and decided to go with something that's not just a shoehorned moral, but something for people that's genuinely fun and not so [[CaptainObviousAesop painfully obvious]]. Aesops can't ever help Timmy or others with everything and are no valid substitutes to actual people who passed away or are still living, regardless of species. They also can't conveniently ease up everyone's emotions.
* '''Reconstructed''': Timmy is a kid, so the Aesop is not obvious, and they make sure there is plenty of fun and actual storyline thrown in and practiced writing methods so the moral was not shoehorned, and was actually a sub-plot to the genuinely fun episode. They also made sure the moral is given in a far more natural and realistic way, rather than treating it like an endorsement or giving them out in a forced manner.
Today, we learned that editing a trope page during the wee hours of the morning doesn't make you a bad person. Go back to AnAesop for more lessons.
