YMMV: Adventures from the Book of Virtues
  • Anvilicious: To some people. But of course, that's the whole point.
  • Chorus-Only Song: The theme song, titled "The Adventure Has Begun".
  • Critical Dissonance: Just before the show premiered on PBS, some critics gave it bad reviews dismissing it as William Bennett's attempt to teach kids "incredibly preachy values" and to "outsmart The Simpsons in prime time ratings", since they consider the fact that he hates television. However, when the show premiered, it has gotten very good ratings, but then again, some critics still aren't impressed with it.
  • Crowning Moment Of Awesome: Most stories are fond of using this.
  • Crowning Moment of Funny: Any scene with Sock and/or Ari.
  • Ear Worm: The theme song.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Soc enjoys this status among some fans.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Annie tells Zack that "No kid gets paid $15 an hour!". While they are too young to hold a job, in 2014 Seattle did vote to raise the minimum wage to $15.
  • Idiot Plot: The "Pied Piper" episode - Annie could have simply spoke to her mom and asked if she could have painted the fence and furniture another day while she goes to the party she was invited to (Or done it earlier.)
  • Periphery Demographic: Despite being targeted at families with children between the ages of two and nine, the series is enjoyed by many preteens, teenagers and young adults, particularly those who grew up with it.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Fox Animation Studios, 20th Century Fox's feature animation division in Phoenix, Arizona, actually produced the animation for the series, only without Don Bluth being involved at all.
  • Tear Jerker: Annie's story of her old neighbor's death in "Faith".
  • Uncanny Valley: Oh, where to begin with most of the minor human characters...
    • Some of Zach's and Annie's facial expressions also qualify.
  • Visual Effects of Awesome: The animation is very neat and lively even by TV standards.
  • What Do You Mean, It's for Kids?: Some stories contain mild violence and murder. But in a kids' show?
  • The Woobie: The kids. Very much so.
