* CityOfWeirdos: When Quozl decide to gradually reveal themselves to humanity, their human friends take them to Disneyland, where they can walk around and talk to people and be completely ignored.

* FirstContact: A press agent, who is the fiance of one of the main characters, meets the Quozl and maneuvers them to chase him to Los Angeles when it seems that he would reveal them for a quick buck. Once there, he reveals that he does want to do so, but for their benefit. It takes some persuading, and thwarting a Quozl suicidal assassination attempt on him along the way, but they agree to follow his plan. It turns about that his plan is brilliant with getting them eventually on a syndicated afternoon talk show to introduce them to the public, which seizing worldwide attention with the intended side-effect of drawing complaints from viewers that the extended broadcasting with this monumental event is preempting their SoapOpera shows, thus giving the Quozl acceptance in a backdoor fashion.

* WheresTheKaboom: When Seams-with-Metal reveals a bomb and her orders from the ruling council to blow up everybody who can reveal the secret.

Chad points out though that had he sided with the agent, they'd all have been atomized.

* SurprisinglySimilarStories: A group of cute PettingZooPeople with advanced technology (like hoverbikes) and idiosyncratic names hiding in a burrow in a forest. Human kids secretly play with them. Mindy's ''Quozltime'' surely had nothing to do with ''WesternAnimation/GummiBears''.

* BrickJoke: Early on High-red-Chanter (and later Thinks-of-Grim too) get a lot of screen time upholding their views.
