* PublicDomainCharacter: The characters are all based on nursery rhymes, which are alluded to in their names. Eep the Mouse is based on "Hickory Dickory Dock", by the way, which his name doesn't immediately indicate.
* RoseHairedSweetie: The pink-haired Bo Peep is soft-spoken and gentle.
* StockAnimalDiet: Eep the Mouse loves cheese.
* TwoGirlsToATeam: Inverted. There are only two guys in the club, Jack and Eep.
