During "Whodunit?", for instance, it turns out that [[spoiler:Tyrone was the thief, but he didn't really steal the jewels; Tasha gave them to him. It was all a plot by Tasha to liven up a rainy day]].

** Any episode with a mystery or disguise element, naturally, as there are only five characters and they all look so unlike each other that the audience can never be the slightest bit in the dark about what's really going on.


* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: The series is so popular in Latin America that it's easier to find fansites and videos of the show in Spanish than the original English. The show even has [[WesternAnimation/JellyJamm its own Spanish imitator]].
* GrowingTheBeard: From the second season onwards, the animation was much improved, and the music became even better. The plots became more original too. For example, the first season had pirates looking for treasure, cowboys chasing a bandit, and knights delivering a message, whereas the third season had pirates attending summer camp, cowboys playing Ping-Pong, and knights protecting a dragon egg.
* HarsherInHindsight: At the end of "The Tale of the Not-So-Nice Dragon", the five heroes promise to come back later, as they do at the end of every episode. This turned out to be the last episode ever.

* UncannyValley: One scene from "The Funnyman Boogeyman" has Uniqua and Pablo blinded by camera flashes. Their eyes in said scene make them look oddly eerie.

* TearJerker: The Secret of Snow. Near the end of Uniqua's adventure to ask Tasha, the Ice Lady, to make it snow, she confesses that she can only make ice, not snow. Uniqua gets sad, and her other friends, Tyrone, Pablo and Austin choose to focus on the fact that they had an adventure together and made friends, even if they couldn't make it snow. As the song "The Secret of Snow" is sung, Uniqua's friends comfort her as they accept the fact it's not going to snow. This mood is maintained clear to the end, but on the last note, snowflakes fall behind them. Uniqua turns and exclaims "Snow! Oh, it's beautiful!", and they all go out to the backyard to play, singing a triumphant reprise of "I Love Snow", leading to their regular end song.

* EarWorm: Seriously. It's a good thing for parents that the songs are as fun as they are...

Added DiffLines:

** Sherman the worman even more so. Despite appearing in only ''three'' episodes, he appears in a lot of fan art, mostly because of his [[{{Moe}} cuteness]].

Added DiffLines:

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Halfway through "Ranch Hands from Outer Space", Uniqua and Pablo shrink Tasha's horses and play with them, singing a song about it. This is thoroughly irrelevant to the plot.
* BizarroEpisode: "Ranch Hands from Outer Space", even by this show's standards.
