YMMV: Paw Paw Bears
  • Earworm: "When you get in trouble, and this goes double, you call the Paw Paw Bears! "Paw Paw Bears! Paw Paw Bears!
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Trembly Paw and Dark Paw. Eugene the genie is also well-liked despite appearing in only 2 episodes.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Slippery Paw and Bumble Paw, Dark Paw's two henchmen, play this straight. Sure, they are jerkasses, but they're also Adorable Evil Minions whom Dark Paw uses as his personal punching bags.
    • Trembly Paw is a mild, borderline example. He's a bitter, snarky, cowardly Grumpy Bear who gets irritated easily, but he has the Butt Monkey status in the tribe and sometimes Mighty Paw picks on him.
    • Dark Paw. He tries so hard to get the moonstone yet always fails.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The greedy greenies. They are green blobs with yellow dot eyes that devour almost everything in sight, they show up in the middle of the night and cannot be killed. Also, it's implied that some of them used to be Paw Paws. Sweet dreams.
  • Reverse Shazam: The show itself is simply called "Paw Paws", although they are called the "Paw Paw Bears" in the theme song's chorus.
  • They Just Didn't Care: Trembly Paw is the only character who never got any merchandise. Maybe because he didn't appear till the 5th episode. Still, he's a popular character.
  • Ugly Cute: Dark Paw, the Big Bad, could be seen as this.
  • Villain Decay: The Great Greenie. In his first appearance, he was a Fat Bastard, but in his second appearance, he thinned down and mellowed out a bit.
  • The Woobie: Trembly Paw, particularly in the episode "Honey of a Robbery". No one believes him when he sees something because he's such a Nervous Wreck so the others mock him and laugh at him for it.
    • Totem Turtle also qualifies. He's the Non-Action Guy of the totem mecha and he even sheds a Single Tear when Princess calls him "too slow".
    • Another example would be the unnamed Slave Mook Paw Paw who was turned into a greedy greenie. He's portrayed in a rather heartbreaking manner.
    • Shortfeather also qualifies, as he's the horse counterpart to Trembly Paw.
    • Angel!Trembly in the episode "The Great Paw Paw Turn Around". All he does is shiver and look sad and he tells Trembly that he almost got them killed by beating up the meanos.
