Added DiffLines:

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: Despite its short run, it remains popular in the United Kingdom to this day.

Added DiffLines:

* FairForItsDay: Considering that the show's premise revolves around a woman being constantly put in peril, it's surprisingly progressive that Penelope frequently saves herself without the assistance of the Ant Hill Mob or that circumstances switch roles so that the Ant Hill Mob are the ones in danger and that Penelope is the one who saves their lives.

Added DiffLines:

* IronWoobie: Penelope is surprisingly chirpy and nonchalant about being put into a ceaseless supply of lethal and humiliating booby traps OncePerEpisode.

* CrowningMomentOfFunny: The episode "London Town Treachery" had Dum-Dum in a hot air balloon with a pair of binoculars searching for Penelope. But he's looking into a binoculars case. Clyde tells him, "It would work better if you took the binoculars out!" Dum-Dum does just that--only he's now looking into an ''empty'' case. ("It still doesn't work, Clyde!")
