The series lasted from September, 2007 to September, 2008. A total of 26 episodes in a single season. The series was created by Creator/CartoonSaloon.

!!Tropes used:

* AchievementsInIgnorance: Skunk once managed to pull off a technique that Panda ''just made up'' in order to get some sleep.
%%* ActionGirl: Fox.
* AntiVillain: Surprisingly, Dragon could be seen as this if you look at the WhatTheHellHero down below.
* BadassBoast: Rabbit manages one when Baboon asks the classic "You and what army?" Rabbit's response? He flexes one arm, then the other, saying, "This [[IncrediblyLamePun army]] over here, and this [[AWorldWidePunomenon army]] over here.
* BecauseDestinySaysSo: Skunk is destined to defeat Dragon.
%%* BelligerentSexualTension: Fox and Rabbit.
%%* BigBad: Dragon.
* BigBrotherBully: Rabbit is mostly this to Skunk. There are times however when he teeters on being a BigBrotherMentor. See JerkWithAHeartOfGold below.
%%* BigGuyLittleGuy: Ox and Bird, respectively.
* BuffySpeak: In "The Art of the Crush":
-->'''Rabbit:''' Dragon has a dangerous... kinda... weapon-- thingy.\\
'''Skunk:''' ''(gasp)'' A dangerous-kinda weapon thingy? Oh no!
* TheChosenOne: Skunk was given to Panda when he asked for help defeating Dragon.
* CampStraight: Baboon; despite his sometimes effeminate actions, he obviously has a crush on Fox.
* CoolBigSister: Fox to Skunk. She was taken in by Panda when her father was killed, and seems to view Skunk as a little brother.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Pig becomes "Master Pig", thanks to Rabbit's "octopus arm" weapon (a plunger attached to a rope, which Pig excels in using).
** Pig going nuts over truffles. It's amazing how much ass he can kick for the things.
* ADogNamedDog: The entire cast.
* TheDragon: Baboon. Ironically, his BigBad is a Dragon by the name of... you know darn well what.
%%* ExcitedShowTitle
* {{Expy}}: Skunk can be considered this in comparison to Po from ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'' and Goku from Early ''Manga/DragonBall''.
* FallenHero: A rather tragic case of it. Dragon used to be a heroic guardian of the valley, but after failing a test from Heaven, he was punished. This caused him to turn into the monster he is today.
* {{Fartillery}}: Skunk, natch. Though unlike many examples, he can only use it when scared or embarrassed and has no real control over it otherwise.
%%* FieryRedhead: Fox (she has red fur).
%%** She even has GreenEyes.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Rabbit has a poster of Fox in a Playboy-esque pose.
%%* {{Gossipy Hen|s}}: Actually a Gossipy Crane.
* GreatOffscreenWar: The "Great and Spectacular Super-Battle" in "The Art of Being Lazy".
* HumanoidFemaleAnimal: Fox borders on being a PettingZooPerson, having a physique that's much more curvy and humanoid than most of the other animals.
%%* IJustWantToBeSpecial: Praying Mantis.
* IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming: Every episode title begins with "The Art of..."
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Rabbit is a bully to Skunk but has a good side.
* JustAStupidAccent: Baboon's Australian accent.
%%* ManiacMonkeys: Baboon and the monkey ninjas.
* TheMessiah: Skunk, being a gift from heaven to save the world, could be interpreted as that world's version of Jesus. If Jesus was an ordinary kid who wasn't wise, and preferred goofing off and having fun, and just being a kid.
* MisplacedWildlife: Skunks in real life live in burrows or dens, but this Skunk lives in a ''tree'' for some reason. Skunk does actually ask Panda if he can move into a burrow upon seeing Rabbit's, but Panda insists he's not ready for one.
* {{Mooks}}: Baboon's army of ninja monkeys.
* NeverMyFault: Dragon's reason for his scarring and him blaming it on the Valley Animals and wishing to destroy the Valley in general. However, given what his punishment was, it can be mildly justified.
* {{Ninja}}: Ninja monkeys, of course!
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Mantis sounds like Creator/ChristopherWalken.
* NoEnding: Although Skunk was built up to be destined to defeat Dragon someday, the series ended its run and no resolution became of Skunk's destiny. There have been rumors early after the series's completion that a movie was in the works to properly conclude the series, but after many years of no new info, it is most likely assumed that the idea was canned.
%%* PandaingToTheAudience: [[ShapedLikeItself Panda]].
* PaperFanOfDoom: Fox. Also, the other girls [[AndZoidberg and Skunk]], as part of the Art of the Fan-Fan.
* RashomonStyle: "The Art of Remembering" has Rabbit, Skunk, and Fox all telling Duck how Panda was kidnapped by Baboon, with Panda later telling Duck the truth. Each of the first three's tales have a unique visual style.
** Rabbit's story is DeliberatelyMonochrome (Limited Palette, with the red sky) and tells how the three of them were escorting Panda to negotiate a truce with Baboon. It also has Rabbit with a huge straw hat and wielding a sword (a ShoutOut to ComicBook/UsagiYojimbo perhaps?), and it's always raining.
** Fox's story looks like oriental scroll drawings, having Fox a beautiful ninja and involving Panda and the Silver Sword, useable by OnlyThePureOfHeart, being stolen. Although they win the sword back from Baboon in basically a round of VideoGame/DanceDanceRevolution, Baboon escapes with Panda.
** Skunk's story is an [[SuddenVideogameMoment 8-bit video game]] where Panda is captured by a lure of food, along with each of the three of them after parodies of famous video games, including ''PacMan'' and ''SuperMarioBros''.
** Panda reveals the truth: [[spoiler:they were on a nature hike when Panda starting talking enthusiastically about bamboo, causing the others to fall asleep and [[AllJustADream dream up their individual stories]].]]
* RhymesOnADime: Rabbit's love poem to Fox in "The Art of the Crush".
* SayMyName: In "The Art of the Nose Blow", Baboon screams Skunk's name when he hears the rumor that Skunk beat him up.
* ShapedLikeItself: One episode was titled "The Art of Art".
%%* ShipTease: "Rabbit likes Fox!"
* SmellySkunk: Surprisingly, this is [[ZigZaggedTrope zig-zagged]]. While the titular character, Skunk, is able to ''skunk'', he has admitted that he's not able to do so on cue. He usually sprays when he's startled or embarrassed, although it's averted in a handful of episodes. He has also admitted that he usually feels embarrassed when he ''skunks''.
* SpeciesSurname: Species Full Name, actually.
** Combined with OnlyOneName.
* StylisticSuck: One episode had Skunk create statues of... dubious quality, but whenever he'd get into a fight with the Ninja Monkeys they'd be damaged and turned into masterpieces. Near the end, the Monkeys capture one statue and give it to Baboon, who invokes this trope and likes it because it looks abstract.
%%* {{Tsundere}}: Rabbit.
%%* TooDumbToLive: Pig.
* WhatTheHellHero: Yeah, he may have failed their test, but Heaven's punishment of Dragon was rather severe. Particularly given he was trying to use his powers to help others. Not only does this seem rather cruel, they ended up creating the series BigBad.
