* SantasExistenceClause: A variant occurs in "I Heard the Barks on Christmas Eve" where Rebound believes in Kris Jingles, the canine equivalent of SantaClaus, despite Patches and Cupcake telling her she's silly for doing so. [[spoiler:True to the trope, he's proven to exist when he appears before the pups.]]

* DogsAreDumb: Averted by four-fifths of the main team. Niblet, of course, is a straight example, at least most of the time.

* DogsAreDumb: Averted by four-fifths of the main team. Niblet, of course, is a straight example, example because of being the KindheartedSimpleton, at least most of the time.

Added DiffLines:

* StupidityInducingAttack: Well, "attack" isn't exactly right, but in "Lucky the Dunce," Strudel develops a machine that can scramble data processors. When Lucky's inadvertently hit with it, he becomes a happily dimwitted idiot, and Strudel realizes that ''brains'' count as "data processors," too.


* TheMole[=/=]ReverseMole: What was Ralph's role in "Once a Ralph, Always A Ralph"? Was he a dog who wanted to uncover the Pound Puppies operation for the first human who showed him love? Did he work with the Kennel Kittens and have a change of heart, was his true goal to help the Pound Puppies all along, or was he indifferent to the whole thing? For that matter, was he an apathetic, lazy dog that just wanted to chew on shoes, or was he a BrilliantButLazy mastermind... that just wanted to chew on shoes? Maybe... **wink**

** FrameUp: When the pictures start appearing again, Chucky insists he's innocent. [[spoiler:He's telling the truth; Pepper and the Super Secret Pup Club [[ClearMyName clear his name]] by proving that Chucky was framed by three nerdy kids he'd bullied who hadn't forgiven him.]]

* CourtroomEpisode: "The Pupple's Court", where Miss Stiffwhiskers has Lucky put on trial for violating the rules of the Pound Puppies. Of course, she is mainly using this as a means to get even with Lucky for a mistake that happened years earlier.

Added DiffLines:

* PrematureBirthDrama: In "Pound Preemies", a pregnant dog gives birth early early. The pound puppies attempt to bring her newborn pups to the vet, but lose them along the way, and scramble to recover them.


** In "The Ruff Ruff Bunch", when Cuddlesworth talks about marking territory with scent, he looks like he's about to pee on a fire hydrant, but it then turns out that he meant they were going to mark their territory by leaving scented candles.

** There are a few to movies in "When Niblet Met Giblet", not the least of which is the title (''Film/WhenHarryMetSally''). There are also scenes similar to the spaghetti scene in ''Disney/LadyAndTheTramp'' and the ending of ''Film/{{Casablanca}}''.
** A lot of shout outs to the ''Disney/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians'' TV series were made in this show. The most notable episode being "The Quintuplets". Also, in the episode, "Taboo", the title pup is voiced by Pamela Segall Aldon, who happened to voice Lucky in the first 33 episodes of ''101 Dalmatians: The Series'', and at the end of the episode, the man who adopts him names him "Lucky"! (Had to be more than a coincidence.)

Added DiffLines:

* CanonWelding: The ComicBook/HasbroComicUniverse title ''ComicBook/{{Revolutionaries}}'' implied Lucky was the childhood dog of Mike Power (who later joined the Adventure Team, predecessor to the G.I. Joe task force). When Mike owned him (it was implied he later ran away) his name was "Smarts".


* CrazyCatLady: A rare male example in "Hello Kitten". The Kennel Kittens places Spoons in one, even though he's not really her special person. The reason is obvious, due to never letting his cats go outside and collects hairballs. He likely didn't even notices Spoons is gone after the Super Secret Pup Club rescue her.

Added DiffLines:

* OneTrueLove: A pet-owner variation; everyone has one "perfect" pet.


* BrokenAesop: In "The Really Weird Dog", Squirt gets a lesson about racism after encountering a friendly alligator. Given the way cats and coyotes are treated on the show, this kind of rings hollow.

** Cookie also uses "pussycats". See Getting Crap Past The Radar below.

** From "Mutternal Instincts": Just before the shelter was to host a conference of Pound Puppies agents from around the world, eight puppies were brought to the pound by dog catcher Ketchum. When some of the team expressed doubt in their ability to get the puppies adopted and prepare for the meeting, Cookie also uses "pussycats". See Getting Crap Past The Radar below.challenged them:
--> '''Cookie:''' What are you guys, a bunch of pussycats?



* GettingCrapPastTheRadar:
** From "Quintuplets":
-->'''Squirt:''' Yeah. I knew a marmot once who got his picture on boxes of nuts. Guy was fixed for life. All the pistachios he could eat!
-->'''Niblet:''' Wow! Can I get my picture on a bag of marshmallows, Lucky? 'Cause I love marshmallows! And I want to be fixed for life, too! ''(eyes dart back)'' I mean, not ''fixed'' fixed, but, you know...
** A similar gag occurs in "Good Dog, [=McLeish=]!" wherein Lucky asks how they're gonna fix [=McLeish=] when he's hypnotized into believing he's a dog. He realizes [[ThatCameOutWrong what he just said]] when the others snicker and laugh, much to his disdain.
** In "Bone Voyage", Lucky used a makeshift rope swing to rescue Rebound from her pursuers and place her next to Agatha. He finished by jumping off and landing next to Cookie. She's impressed with his performance.
--> '''Cookie:''' Nice dismount.
** In "Mutternal Instincts", Lucky was giving kudos to Strudel and Cookie for a delivery system they developed. Niblet was quite proud of his dachshund teammate.
--> '''Niblet:''' That's my wiener!
