* NeverBareheaded: Mitchell is never seen without his hat on. However, in "One Small Step", the force of the super saucer flying above him causes his hat to fall off, [[https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/readyjetgo/images/f/fe/Ready_Jet_Go_-_Mitchell_no_hat_no_glasses.PNG/revision/latest?cb=20190617151128 and we finally see him without his hat on]].

Added DiffLines:

* OnlySaneMan: Played with. He seems to think he's this amongst the DSA scientists, but when compared to the others, he's the only ''insane'' one due to him being a LargeHam who takes everything way too seriously.

* BigDamnHeroes: [[spoiler: In the one-hour special "One Small Step", Jet, Sean, Sydney, Mindy, and Sunspot land their saucer in Little Dipper Lake, where the saucer sinks and they almost drown. Luckily, Mitchell, who was in a rowboat at the exact same time, came to their rescue and they hopped upon his rowboat. Out of gratitude, Mindy invites him to the sleepover]].

** At the end of "One Small Step", [[spoiler: Mitchell rescues the kids from drowning in the lake with his rowboat]]. The kids head off to have the slumber party in Jet's backyard. Mindy goes back and invites Mitchell to sleep over as well. Mitchell has a huge smile on his face, stammers a bit, and says he's in. Mitchell and Mindy escort Jet 2 to the backyard together. At the backyard, while the older kids, Jet 2, and Carrot and Celery are sitting around the campfire, Mitchell and Mindy are off to the side playing mini-golf, just the two of them. They also sing together.



* VocalEvolution: His voice got raspier by the end of season 1. In season 2, he has an all-new VA, and his new voice is much more hammy.

* VocalEvolution: His voice got raspier by the end of season 1. In season 2, he has an all-new VA, and his new voice is much more hammy. He gets another new voice actor in "One Small Step", and now he sounds more like a tomboyish rugrat than anything else.


* GreenEyes: He has emerald-green eyes, due to him being an Earthie, intuitive, and passionate about what he does. His green eyes, along with his bright red clothing, nerd glasses, and large hat, also make him stand out the most out of the recurring cast, (due to being the most important), meaning your eyes are naturally drawn to him.

* HiddenHeartOfGold: [[spoiler: Mitchell hides behind a facade as revealed in the ChristmasEpisode. Mitchell acts mean to Jet and his friends, and Mitchell claims that he "doesn't do friends", but Mitchell isn't really mean, he's really just a lonely kid who wants to join Jet's clique, but doesn't know how to fit in. Fortunately, he gets his happy ending.]]

* {{Adorkable}}: Mitchell can be this when he's not being a jerk, especially in the episode "Solar System Bake-Off!".

* AgentScully: Unlike Mindy and Lillian, he doesn't believe Halloween is magical and doubts that the witch they saw fly across the moon in "Jet's First Halloween" was real. In "Our Sun is a Star!", he somehow doesn't believe that there are other suns in the universe.



* TheCameo: For no apparent reason, he made a cameo in "Sunspot's Sunspot".



* CharacterCheck: Even though Mitchell has been taking a level in kindness in Season 2, in "Our Sun is a Star!", he's just as mean as he was in Season 1. However, this episode takes place in January, and Mr. Peterson is shown taking down Christmas decorations, so it's possible that this episode could have taken place after "Holidays in Boxwood Terrace", where Mitchell becomes part of the group. That episode was one of the very last Season 1 episodes, and Mitchell didn't start becoming nicer until "Try and Try Again", a Season 2 episode.



** He faints in "Our Sun is a Star!".



* GoodLuckCharm: "Magnet, PI" reveals that Mitchell wears a lucky magnet under his jacket.



* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: In "Magnet, PI", we never find out what Mitchell's "top-secret" detective case was. When he appears again at the end of the episode, he only wonders why Sunspot appears to be tap-dancing on the ceiling, and is then dragged away by Cody.

* AccentInterest: In the episode "Kid-Kart Derby", Mr. Peterson takes note of Jet's apparent Midwest accent. Jet says that Bortron is in the middle of their spiral arm of the galaxy, so midwest was accurate. Luckily, Mr. Peterson avoids finding out that Jet is an alien by assuming that Bortron is somewhere in Iowa.

* SmartJerkAndNiceMoron: The Smart Jerk to Lillian's Nice Moron. Mitchell is quite smart for a kid his age, and he's also very blunt and snarky, with a high-and-mighty attitude at times. Lillian, on the other hand, is ditzy and forgetful, but makes up for it with her politeness and sweetness.

-->Voiced by: -->'''Voiced by''': Keegan Connor Tracy



* NervousWreck: She can be pretty nervous when under pressure. Examples would be in "My Fair Jet", where she is anxious about the DSA Open House not going well, and in "Astronaut Ellen Ochoa", where she, along with her co-workers, is nervous about Ellen Ochoa's visit to the DSA. It's possible that Sean gets his NervousWreck tendencies from her.

to:

* TheSpock: Dr. Rafferty serves this role in the FreudianTrio with Skelley and Bergs. While Rafferty is more open and friendly than most examples of the trope, she's the most intellectual of three and even though she's a NervousWreck at times, at least she has more self-composure than Bergs.

* {{Fanboy}}: Dr. Bergs seems to be one to Ellen Ochoa. He even has a coffee mug with her face on it.



* TheMcCoy: He fills this role in the FreudianTrio with Rafferty and Skelley. He is the most emotional of the trio and the most prone to panicking under pressure.

** In "Astronaut Ellen Ochoa", Bergs' already-established caffeine addiction is taken UpToEleven, where he drinks lots of coffee to compensate for his nervousness and is devastated when his Ellen Ochoa coffee mug breaks. As such, Dr. Skelley advises him to drink decaf instead.
* NervousWreck: In "Astronaut Ellen Ochoa", while all the DSA scientists are nervous about Ellen's visit, Dr. Bergs certainly takes the cake. He tries to drink coffee to compensate for it but is only made more hyper. This isn't helped when his Ellen mug gets shattered.



* SeriousBusiness: He ''clearly'' treats coffee as such.

* TheKirk: She serves this role in the FreudianTrio with Bergs and Rafferty. While she, like them two, was nervous about Ellen Ochoa's visit in "Astronaut Ellen Ochoa", she was easily the most level-headed of them all and served as the middle point between the two.
* TheLeader: Dr. Skelley is the leader of the DSA scientist group consisting of herself, Dr. Rafferty, Dr. Bergs, and (if the plot calls for it) Mr. Peterson, since she is the calmest and level-headed out of all of them, and also has a clear plan of what to do next.

-->'''Voiced by''': Creator/KathleenBarr
Ellen Ochoa is a real life person who is an astronaut, and the director of the Johnson Space Center. She comes to visit Boxwood Terrace in "Astronaut Ellen Ochoa" to review an engineering project.
----
* HundredPercentAdorationRating: Ellen seems to have a reputation amongst the Boxwood Terrace population. All the DSA scientists are eager to impress, the kids taking a liking to her immediately, and even Floyd the squirrel is nice to her.
* BrainyBrunette: She has brown hair, and she's also an accomplished scientist.
* TheCameo: She makes a cameo during the research montage in "Moon Face".
* DrinkOrder: In her episode, Ellen Ochoa drinks some lemonade from the kids' lemonade stand. This gives us some insight into her character by telling us that even though she's a major scientist, she's really just a normal person and is also OneOfTheKids.
* NiceGirl: Ellen is friendly, compassionate, and likes to play with the kids.
* NotQuiteStarring: Ellen doesn't voice herself. Instead, she is voiced by Kathleen Barr.
* OneOfTheKids: In her episode, Ellen hangs out with Jet, Sean, Sydney, and Mindy, and genuinely enjoys it. She even ends up playing with them.

* TrueBlueFemininity: She wears a blue jacket.

* YouRemindMeOfX: In "Visit to Mom's Office", she says that Jet reminds her of herself when she was a kid. For context, Jet ended up telling her that he's an alien from another planet, but Dr. Rafferty interprets this as him pretending to be one, and says that she felt like an alien when she was kid, too. Dr. Rafferty also admires how Jet's got it all worked out.

* TheDogBitesBack: In "Back to Bortron 7". After Mitchell tries (and fails) to reveal the Propulsions' alien identities, Mr. Peterson chews him out for failing to provide evidence, and for waking him up and dragging him outside at 2:00 AM. This event happened after several episodes in which he never scolded Mitchell and always did everything for him.
* TheEveryman: Of the DSA scientists, he is the most average and plain. Though that's not saying much considering some of his more comical antics.



* FriendlyEnemy: To Carrot.

to:

* {{Foil}}: To Carrot. Both are somewhat goofy fathers. Carrot embraces his silliness and is usually a nice dad, but isn't above being stern to Jet (like in "Chore Day"). Mr. Peterson, on the other hand, treats the most minor of things as SeriousBusiness (such as mini-golf and the communications satellite not working) and almost always lets Mitchell get away with stuff.
* FriendlyEnemy: To Carrot. They are usually at odds with each other (especially in "Earth Camping"), but they sometimes can be good friends.



* LargeHam: He has a tendency to speak very bombastically.



* MiseryBuildsCharacter: In "Mindy's Weather Report", Mr. Peterson tried to tell Mitchell that carrying heavy sandbags will help build character. Mitchell protests that his character is already big enough, so Mr. Peterson ends up carrying his sandbags for him.



* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: In "Mindy's Weather Report", he claims that he's the self-appointed safety officer of the neighborhood, and even in that episode, we don't really see him acting as such. He's also a scientist, even though we never see him working at the DSA.
* PushoverParents: He constantly puts up with Mitchell's crap and caters to his every whim. However, in "Back to Bortron 7" he ends up standing up to him for once.

However, Sean is more open, while Mitchell tries to shut himself out from everyone else. Sean is also friendlier than Mitchell.



* OnlySaneMan: In his circle with Lillian and Mindy, where he's the only one who isn't convinced that Halloween is magical.



* RedOniBlueOni: In two ways.
** Mitchell is the Red Oni to Jet's Blue Oni. Mitchell often gets irritated, while Jet is more optimistic and patient. Fittingly, the former wears red while the latter wears blue. Mitchell could also be seen as the Red Oni to Mindy and Lillian's Blue Onis because those two are also calmer than he is.
** Mitchell is also the Blue Oni to Jet's Red Oni. Jet is super excitable and often leaps before looking. Mitchell, on the other hand, is calmer than he is and more pragmatic. He is also the Blue Oni to Mindy and Lillian's Red Onis because those two are very energetic.



* SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl: The Savvy Guy to Mindy and Lillian's Energetic Girls. Mitchell is the OnlySaneMan of their little group and is more logical.



* {{Foil}}: So far, she seems to be one to Mitchell, being everything that he isn't. While he's an intelligent arsehole, she's a ditzy sweetheart. Adding to this is the fact that he's an AgentScully while she's an AgentMulder.
