Despite the fairly typical cartoon presentation, the show had an ongoing plot over W.C. Moore's search for Berkonium and attempts to completely control the town and the Truckstoppers, while the kids deal with the trials of growing up in a small town in the Australian outback.

* AbandonedMine: Wannapoo was mined out years ago by the Moore family. This affects the town into the present; Lil' Elvis is the only thing keeping the town afloat, and [[spoiler:the network of mines underneath the town and its surroundings comes back to bite everyone ''hard'']].



* EarlyBirdCameo: In Episode 1, the sequence that incroduced us to the struggling outback town of Wanapoo begins with the town's run-down 'Welcome' sign, which depicts a bearded miner. At first, it seems like it's just because Wanapoo is a former mining town, but in Episode 2, we learn that the miner is none other the town's former biggest local legend from before Li'l Elvis came along: Old Man Izard, whose ghost is said to haunt the old mines.

* TunnelNetwork: The old mines beneath Wannapoo provide the main characters with both a secret hideout and easy travel; there are numerous openings, from the fireplace in the Moore house and the random fissure that opens up beneath Janet in Episode 1 to the outhouse (a.k.a. dunny) that fell out of use after its bottom fell out. [[spoiler:The fact that the town is right on top of a mine becomes terribly, terribly relevant by the end.]]
