Added DiffLines:

* LowCountGag: In the episode "Amateur Dramatics", Matthew is surprised to see only two people in the audience as Soo had told him that there were twice as many people before. She says that previously there was only one person in the audience and now there are two, so technically there's twice as many. Later, when they walk out in the middle of the play due to finding it boring, Matthew is embarrassed at having the "whole audience" walk out on him.

Added DiffLines:

* MagicWand: Sooty uses one.
* MagicalIncantation: Whenever Sooty is about to initiate a trick with his magic wand, he uses the rhyme, "Izzy wizzy, let's get busy!".


** An episode of the new show features WackyRacing with go-karts, and stars JustinLeeCollins as Fred Firewheel, a LargeHam cheating villain racer. When one of his traps fails, he channels his best [[WesternAnimation/WackyRaces Dick Dastardly]], shakes his fist and says "Drat! And double drat!"

Added DiffLines:

* AdultFear: In "Safety First", there's a scene where it looks as though Sweep has been run over by a car. He hasn't, and Sooty and Matthew's reactions are PlayedForLaughs, but it's still quite unnerving.


** There really aren't many more children's TV series that take such advantage of the inevitable parental demographic in this way and others. Particularly in the late '80s and through the '90s, where there were SpecialGuest appearances from people not likely to be commonly known amongst kids, such as comedians like Jack Dee, Paul Merton and Ronnie Corbett. One of the most well known guest appearances was when [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qnE_8oeDj88 Iron Maiden drummer Nicko McBrain appeared teaching Sooty and Sweep drumming.]].

** A late episode had a Buddha statue being nicknamed 'Buddhy Jolly' for its beatific expression. The same episode also had Matthew injure his fingers on his left hand, requring him to heavily bandage them up. He then tells a laughing Sooty that "If it had been my right hand, you wouldn't be laughing. It would bring tears to your eyes....".

Added DiffLines:

* DomesticApplianceDisaster: When Sooty and Sweep both get given jumpers that are too big for them, they try to shrink them in the wash but use too much soap powder and the laundry room fills with bubbles. Later, they didn't shrink, so they put them in the dryer but they shrink to itty-bitty size.


* TheKiddieRide: A camper van ride by RG Mitchell. Sooty existed as a figure inside the ride, but the rest of the characters only appear as decals outside. It also engages the child in an educational match game while the ride is in use.

* TheUnintelligible: Sweep talks only in high pitched squeaks, and has to be 'translated' by other characters. However, his squeaks are clearly synched to a written script, and some longtime viewers of the show can understand him even without translation.
