Added DiffLines:

* ADayInTheLimelight: The final episode, "Valentine's Day", is one for Pansy Pig, with Henry's Cat's latest scheme to set her up with a Valentine's date after noticing she's lonely. Unfortunately, Pansy ends up picking Rum-Baa-Baa.

Added DiffLines:

* AnimationBump: The final {{Uncancelled}} season uses cel animation. While it still emulates the original marker style authentically, it leads to slightly more detailed animation. The backgrounds also tend to be more fully realised instead of the usual blank white backdrops (and sometimes even with ArtShift gags like photographs).


* AllJustADream: Many of the episodes take place in the hero's imagination, although there are are occasional instances of OrWasItADream.

* DisproportionateRetribution: Having Henry's Cat sent to prison all for the sake of unwittingly kicking down Farmer Giles' wall was rather heavy handed. If Farmer Giles had any heart, he would have merely made Henry's Cat rebuild the wall instead.

** It's a RunningGag that Rum-Baa-Baa inexplicably serves multiple ''life sentences'' ("or perhaps longer") for every scheme he commits, no matter what severity. He's still always back an episode or two later.


* VerbalTic: Henry's Cat often precedes his sentences with a nasal "Owwww". In the US dub he uses more feline-esque purrs and mews.

Added DiffLines:

* RealAfterAll: Rum-Baa-Baa is usually a villain of Henry's Cat's many daydreams, though sometimes appears in real life misadventures as well.


* WidgetSeries: Quite possibly the weirdest and most random of Bob Godfrey's animations, and that's saying ''a lot''.

Added DiffLines:

* AllThereInTheManual: Creator Stan Hayward explained that the reason for the title character's name is that his owner, Henry, had moved away. The cat's terrible memory meant he forgot to go with him, and even forgot his own name before Henry's, leading him to simply term himself "Henry's Cat".

Added DiffLines:

* BritishBrevity: Subverted with the first two seasons, though seasons three to five consisted of 4-6 episodes. The show lasted 51 episodes over 10 years, a rarity back then given BBC's notorious reliance on re-runing their one-season animated shows rather than renewing them for more episodes.
