Added DiffLines:

* SeasonalRot: Happened around season 5. This season and beyond were radically different from the earlier seasons, focusing on consonants rather than vowels and showing two fifteen-minute episodes at a time instead of one thirty-minute episode. Worse, Cliff Hanger got dramatically flanderized and other fan favourites such as Click, Heath, and Busterfield were retired for no good reason.

Added DiffLines:

* SignatureSong: "Cliff Hanger," "Sven Said Ten Tents," "Rocket-Doodle-Doo," "Silent E," "Grubby Pup," "Sloppy Pop," "If You Can Read AT," "When Two Vowels Go Walking," "Dance in Smarty Pants," "Get Your Mouth Moving," "Ten Little Words," or "Grow, Mane, Grow!"


* HeartwarmingMoments: Some of the lyrics to Sometimes Y were pretty sweet.

Added DiffLines:

** The entire cast singing [[CrowdSong "A Sad Book"]] at the end of "A King and His Hawk."


** Anything by the Monkey Pop-Up Theater. Doubles as an EarWorm.



* FridgeHorror: During "Silent E", we see the titular villain turn a twin into a twine. When one stops to realize he turned an innocent kid into an inanimate object, it's suddenly a lot less amusing and cements Silent E as the monster he's portrayed as.

* TheWoobie: Chicken Jane. Also, Cliff Hanger, at least pre-flanderization.

Added DiffLines:

** Leona receiving "The Gingerbread Man" as a birthday gift, only to be heartbroken when the story ends with him being eaten. Part of the party ends up playing out like a ''funeral'' in the gingerbread man's memory, with the lions even ''singing a song'' to say goodbye to him. Silly as the whole thing is, it evokes the very real pain that is characteristic of such a moment.


** If You Can Read At.



** The "freebee" virus in "The Good Seed" for all the random chaos that happens because of it.
* RetroactiveRecognition: Look up Peter Linz, the voice of Theo. You'll find that he's Tutter from ''Series/BearInTheBigBlueHouse''!

* AccidentalInnuendo: "What's Cooking with Theo and Cleo" features a lot of rhyming titles like "Slammed and Rammed Ham", "Squished Fish in a Dish", "Beef in a Sheet", and "Tackled and Paddled Hamburger". Considering the two openly flirt on the show and sometimes seem to be close to [[UnusualEuphemism killing the Y-rating]], [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar it could be intentional.]]

* UncannyValley: Arty Smartypants. That one messed-up eye and that the other one is cold, dead, unblinking and fixed on the viewer is already a bit unnerving, but his overall strange anatomy and his ''human hands'' can make his appearance downright harrowing to some viewers.
