* AdaptationalSpeciesChange: Only here, it's more like "Dub Species Change". If a dub changes the show's name to ''Jellikins'', it also changes the characters so that they resemble bears instead of humans. [[note]] According to some sources, Bassett's, a well-known British confectionery company famous for its Jelly Babies sweets, financed and sponsored ''Jellabies'', and Jelly Babies are what the creators supposedly modeled the original character designs after. However, since Jelly Babies don't officially exist in most of the world outside the U.K., the animation had to be redone to reflect this. [[/note]]

''Jellabies'', also known as ''Jellikins'' in certain regions, is a British-Australian children's cartoon which aired in the late 90's and was narrated by Creator/RikMayall. It stars a cast of jelly humans (or jelly bears in the ''Jellikins'' version of the show) who live in the Jolly Jelly World at the end of the rainbow. These jelly people, or "jellies", create their own rainbows through a special machine known as the Jellyscope whenever a storm occurs anywhere in the world; the Jellyscope can also answer just about any question the jellies have.

Added DiffLines:

* EverythingsBetterWithRainbows: As the theme song states, when the sun comes out after the rain goes, that's the time for making rainbows.


* MeaningfulName: Strum loves music and musical instruments, hence why his named refers to strumming a guitar.

Added DiffLines:

* ArborealAbode: Pepper's home is in a hollowed-out tree trunk.


* RainbowMotif: Surprisingly not played completely straight, despite the setting of the show being at the end of the rainbow. The characters are colored red, orange, yellow, pink, blue, purple, and (counting Duffy the dragon) green, which isn't completely accurate to the actual colors of the rainbow (the pink and purple should be indigo and violet; the violet part could probably be forgiven since Strum is purple, and that color is pretty close to violet).
