* FridgeBrilliance: The "angel" twins are found from an egg left by "God" to halt the progression of technology after seeing the disasters it caused on other planets. This makes ''a lot'' of sense in retrospect when one reads ''Dragon Ball'', where Goku and General Blue go to Penguin Village and Senbei expresses relief [[BreakingTheFourthWall to be in a Shonen Jump again]]. It is later revealed in Dragon Ball that "God" and "The Devil" are two aspects of the same being and that "The Devil" can hatch "Demonic" offspring from eggs he produces. Later still, it is revealed several planets have their own "God", meaning the god who tried to stop the advancement of Earth was likely the same one later seen in ''Dragon Ball'', which also explains the angel eggs. They were probably birthed by Earth's god the same way Earth's devil birthed demons.

They were probably birthed by Earth's god the same way Earth's devil birthed demons.

Added DiffLines:

* AmericansHateTingle: While the series is considered a cultural icon in its home country, rivaling successor series ''Manga/DragonBall'', in much of the rest of the world, it's a cult hit at best. Part of this might have to do with the lack of international distribution, not helped by the fact that bringing it over to the west nowadays would mean having to break it out of the shadows of both ''Dragon Ball'' and modern anime, what with it being much more flippant and child-friendly than the typical image of Japanese animation. Ironically, it's likely that ''Dr. Slump'' would've had more luck cracking the western market had it been released there when anime was still under the thrall of the AnimationAgeGhetto.

* FunnyMoments: The entire manga is made of this. Specific examples are Senbei's WackyMarriageProposal to Midori and any time [[BreakingTheFourthWall the fourth wall is broken]].

Added DiffLines:

* ToughActToFollow: [[HilariousInHindsight Although the notion seems hilariously quaint now]], at the time ''Dr. Slump'' was very much seen as this. During the first story arc, ''Manga/DragonBall'' was actually seen as somewhat of a disappointment, or at the very least a step down. Of course, once the first TournamentArc began, this attitude didnít last long.


* {{Moe}}: Arale [[EarlyInstallmentCharacterDesignDifference in the first few chapters]], she looks like a realistic 13 year old {{Meganekko}} and is extremely cute. She's still cute in her smaller form (the one everyone remembers) but more in a "chubby little kid" way. Her innocence also helps.

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: While not iconic as ''Franchise/DragonBall'', [[IconicCharacterForgottenTitle "Arale"]] is still a popular and well-known series in Italy, and the anime, remake, and all the movies have been dubbed in Italian. In fact, many Italians love Toriyama for both "Arale" and ''Dragon Ball''.
