* This line, from the pilot:“Spring Thing”:


* "Trading Places" is a WAFF episode mostly about Peep dreaming about being a butterfly and his friends being various different animals...he has a good time with Chirp and Newton, but Dream!Quack is uncharacteristically rude and grouchy to Peep in a way that the real Quack would scarcely even think to be, no matter what circumstances. The fact that this version of Quack is only in Peep's head is ''worse'' in a way: He's berating ''himself'' in the form of Quack for imagining Quack in a form that Quack (in the waking world) said he didn't want to be...and something he knows isn't his fault. Also, Peep takes Quack's unusually harsh attitude towards him in stride, possibly hinting that, despite his cheery, all-loving attitude, he perceives Quack as meaner then he actually is due to Quack's careless behavior, which translates to his dream. [[TurnTheOtherCheek And then he acts as cheery and all loving as ever any how.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Especially when Peep starts to cry in “Stormy Weather”. Even Quack gets teary-eyed.

** Peep, not knowing that trees lose their leaves in the winter, is horrified when his tree begins to lose it's leaves. ''We'' know it's just the tree going dormant, but Peep doesn't, and his distress and desperation to save it is PlayedForDrama.

Added DiffLines:

* This line, from the pilot:
-->'''Peep:''' Things used to be so great. Then it got cold and everything died. Why?
** He's just talking about winter, but even ''in'' context it's kind of morbid.


* "Stuck Duck" is a pretty funny episode, but there is one moment where Quack gets anxious since it's getting dark and they ''still'' haven't gotten him out of the log. All the animals immediately cease their efforts to get him out after they leave, with Quack calling after them not to leave him alone. Peep and Chirp turn around when they hear his pleas, but it's a little sobering seeing ''Quack'' of all characters so pitiful.

** Anytime a character cries.
** Splendid Bird of Paradise's Story: She lived a happy, idyllic life in the jungle, until one day she was captured by poachers and taken to a pet store and stuck in a tiny cage in the city. She escaped, but can't find her way home, and in addition to being lost, is freezing cold in an environment she was never meant for. She's old enough to fly by herself, but seems to be only slightly older then [[AdorablyPrecociousChild Peep and Chirp.]]. Her two-parter ends happily when the other birds make a new home for her, but there's still a sad note: There's no indication she can ever find her way back to the jungle she grew up in, and has to make do in this strange new place she was thrust into.
** Chirp hatched when her mother wasn't around (and why her parents weren't guarding their just about to hatch babies raises a whole new batch of questions) she fell out of her nest. The narrator states that she wasn't upset because she got distracted by a butterfly and went to follow it, but there's still something heartbreaking that she'll never be able to get to know her family because of an accident she had has a newborn. ''And in the present she doesn't remember any of this. As far as she knows, she's always been alone.'' And imagine how her parents must have felt if they found that one of their eggs had hatched, but no baby robin to be seen...
** Peep's egg was laid in a henhouse, but the egg fell out and he hatched after bumping into a rock. Peep immediately gets found by Chirp and Quack, and quickly becomes the happy, sweet, and innocent little chick we know, but just imagine how his poor mother must have felt losing one of her unborn children like that. As far as she knows, Peep's egg was destroyed.
*** It's bittersweet, since in general they seem to lead happy lives and have food and shelter, and ''do'' have older animals like Nelly and Hoot to act as mentors to them, but it's the moment when you realize all those times like when they panic when they think the world is ending because autumn has begun, or think that the big wide world has been "stolen" when there's fog, or Chirp desperately trying to fly even though she's only a baby and her wings aren't fully developed yet, all those moments where the characters are terrified or heartbroken over small, normal things and stay deeply distressed because they don't have parents to explain it to them.
