YMMV: Tricky People
  • Alternate Character Interpretation: The man seemingly seeking help to find his lost puppy during the "Tricky People" number might actually be looking for his puppy.
    • Yellow Dino himself may be a Tricky Person on account of his preference to company with children.
  • Anvilicious
  • Award Bait Song: "Safely Held in Your Heart". Apparently, being molested turns you into an angsty Grammy-worthy singer-songwriter.
  • Ear Worm: "Tricky people, really tricky people have pain down in their heart..."
  • Memetic Mutation: Referring to pedophiles as tricky people.
  • Narm: A Stranger Danger PSA with upbeat musical numbers, a Totally Radical mascot, and a Bumbling Sidekick for the villain is funny. All of that contrasted against a serious, realistic portrayal of a sexual predator is hilarious.
  • Paranoia Fuel: Yello Dyno: "Tricky, tricky, tricky, tricky people! Everywhere you look, it could be another tricky person!"
  • Squick: Reginald Charming's behavior makes a good number of scenes centering on him rather uncomfortable, especially since their tone clashes so heavily with the rest of the PSA.
  • The Woobie: The man looking for his lost puppy, if the above Alternate Character Interpretation is true.
