This TV show has examples of these tropes:
- Animal Reaction Shot: the raison d'etre of the show. Morris anthropomorphised their expressions and attitudes with expositions of what he imagined they were thinking.
- Animal Stereotypes: This was, effectively and literally, Lies to Children, introducing them to the animal world in a way small children could understand.
- British Accents: Johnny Morris was obviously a native Bristolian. BBC Bristol made the series. It shows in the accents.
- Fluffy Tamer: Johnny Morris with the more lively and dangerous specimens.
- Hilarity In Zoos: the setting called for this (Bristol Zoo)
