Mopatop's shop has an assistant named Puppyduck, who is a hybrid duck/dog-like creature [[MeaningfulName as her name would suggest]]. There was also a mouse character named Moosey Mouse who lived in the ceiling of the shop with his parents, and generally went unnoticed by Mopatop and Puppyduck when he was visiting the shop. The show depicted Mopatop and Puppyduck's interactions with customers, who generally wanted to buy stuff that no one would expect to find in a real store (e.g. an opera singer wanting to buy a partner to sing with, a fisher who wants a river to use his fishing equipment in, etc.).

!!Mopatop's Tropes:
* EveryEpisodeEnding: The big clock in the shop goes off at the end of every episode, prompting Mopatop and Puppyduck to close the shop.
* {{Muppet}}: With this being a Jim Henson show and all, every character is this.
* PunnyName: Mopatop's name is meant to sound like "mop it up", which makes sense since he does mop up stuff sometimes.
* WeSellEverything: The shop sells "anything that you could ever think or dream of", up to and including stuff that would be impossible to find in a real-life store (such as a puddle), non-physical items (such as a box full of cold), and even ''fictional items'' (such as lettuce that hums).
