Added DiffLines:

* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: In "The Wishing Whale", the titular whale grants the wishes of Potsworth and company (except Keiko, who didn't appear in the Dream Zone raft with the others for reasons that are never explained). The wishes are just what the heroes wanted at first, but then go awry:
** Potsworth ends up in a world where dogs are the masters and humans are the pets, and he even lives in a house of his very own. However, a human pet he adopts ends up causing trouble for him when he invites other humans over, and they end up causing chaos just as a pack of dogs would for a real life human.
** Nick ends up in a world where he's painting live on stage, and everyone is cheering on his talent and vision. Unfortunately, when Potsworth accidentally messes up Nick's painting, the crowd ''still'' cheers him on, so Nick realizes to his horror that the crowd will just give him nothing but compliments regardless of what he paints, making the crowd's adulation meaningless.
** Rosie ends up in a world where a huge shopping mall has thousands of stores, with all of their items on sale, and everything Rosie could ever want. However, after Rosie has bought what she wanted, the robot salesman ''keeps chasing her'' to offer her more products, even after Rosie's done shopping.
** Nick ends up in a world where he's jumbo-sized, which allows him to scare off a mugger, so he doesn't have to be the littlest kid around anymore. Unfortunately, he's also so huge that he scares the ordinary citizens along with the mugger, so none of them will sell him food when he's hungry and eventually they bring in tanks to shoot at him.

Added DiffLines:

* NoodleIncident: In "The Wishing Whale", for some reason Keiko doesn't appear with the others in the Dream Zone, so she doesn't participate in their "wishing" adventure (Nick even wonders at one point if sharks got her). It's never explained why Keiko was separated from them since she was sleeping at the same time they were, so Keiko is just left confused at the end when they're willing to do chores in the real world.


%%* DreamLand: The Dream Zone.

to:

%%* * DreamLand: The Dream Zone.Zone, which true to it's name, exists in the main characters' dreams.
