The Glo Friends are a community of small, glow-in-the-dark insects that live in Glo Land, a magical kingdom located in the middle of a forest. Their homes are built near the Glo Pond, from where they harvest a substance known as [[{{MAcguffin}} Moondrops]]. These Moondrops literally drip down from the moon and the Glo Friends collect them and take them back to Glo Ponds in plastic bags. These buckets are then emptied into the lake. These Moondrops are what sustains them and enables their ability to glow in the dark.

Apparently, Glo Pond is an artificial body of water built and maintained by the Friends, themselves. Anyway, these Moondrops are what sustains them and enables their ability to glow in the dark.

At one point, the pond springs a leak and the Glo Friends have trouble finding replacement Moondrops to refill the pond. If they fail, they will cease to glow in the dark. The Glo Friends live a peaceful existence, but it's continually threatened by Starnose, the leader of the Moligans. They are a group of mole-like monsters that wish to abuse the Glo Friends' ability to light up the night. The Moligans were banished from the kingdom of Moleslavia by King Mole for several crimes which include [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking mob action, robbery, looting, cheating, and unlawful digging]]. The Moligans have been living underground and planning revenge against King Mole ever since their banishment. They are short-sighted, so they were unsuccessful in their attempts to harvest gold from some nearby mines. As such, the Moligans have attempted to enslave the Glo Friends to power their lanterns, allowing them to see in the darkness of the mines, harvest the gold and then buy out the kingdom of Molslavia.

* CliffHanger: Much like the ''Pony'' segments, any conflict that wasn't solved in ten minutes ended with one of these. Though, the ''Glo Friends'' cliff hangers actually tended to be less severe than the former's.

* FriendToAllLivingThings: The Glo Wees. They ever have a book that allows them to communicate with nature.
* FurryConfusion: So, we have the Glo Friends and Moligans, who wear clothes, and various [[TalkingAnimal talking animals]] that don't. Huh.
* GettingTheBoot: The method by which the Moligans are banished by King Mole.
* GoldFever:
** The Moligan's motive, pretty much. It's bad enough that they're willing to harm innocent creatures and the environment to get it, too.
** This applies to Driver and his Red Any Army, too.

** The jesters of the Red Ant Army.
* MoleMen: The [[BigBad big bads]], the Moligans.
* NiceHat: Glo Bopbug. A top hat, in fact.

* ThePigPen: Skunk Bug. With a name like that...
* PluckyGirl: Baby Glo Worm, the youngest member of the cast.
* ThePowerOfFriendship: Well duh. This ''is'' that kind of show, after all.
* PowerSource: Moondrops, which are harvested from Glo Pond.
* TheQuest: The title of their first episode, in fact. The Glo Friends embark [[MundaneMadeAwesome on a mighty quest to refill their pond]]. Yeah...

* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: The Glo Friends...glow. But then, it can be quite powerful in the right situation; for example, they used their glowing powers to melt a giant Ice cage in the winter (once they were able to circle together, holding hands) in ''Glo Friends Save Chritmas'' and they manage to help heal a giant tree and have it bloom flowers again ("Love will Light the way!").
* WickedWitch: Blanche. In the orignal ''Glo Friends Save Chritmas'' special, she traps Santa and his reindeer in order to stop Christmas from happening.
* TheWorfEffect: Glo Bug, naturally. Whenever somebody needs to get beaten to show how dangerous the villains are, it's always the resident BadButt Glo Bug who takes the beating.
