The main goats.note 

No matter what happens, I won't let it upset me
When danger comes around to me, I won't let it get me
Even if the wolf tries to catch me, just make it a game for fun

With a smile in your heart, just keep on trying
When we fall, we get up and keep on flying
No matter what the weather, we can laugh our cares away
I'm just a little goat

Pleasant Goat and Big Big Wolf (喜羊羊与灰太狼) is a rather popular cartoon series in China, being one of, if not the, most successful pieces of animation the nation has ever domestically produced. Huang Weiming created it in 2005 at Creative Power Entertaining. The show has gone on ever since; with several seasons and ten movies to its name, the show has no end in sight.

Think Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner meets The Smurfs.

A group of school-age goats live and play in the aptly-titled Goat Village. Weslie is the smart and positive hero who leads the goats. Paddi loves to eat and sleep. Sparky is The Big Guy who's strong and likes to exercise. Sparky has a crush on Tibbie, a sweet and emotional goat who always cares about her own fashion and appearance. Jonie is the kind and sensible class president. Mr. Slowy is the old, slow village chief who teaches the goats life lessons and also creates inventions to help them.

In a castle outside of Goat Village lives the main villain Wolffy. His impatient wife Wolnie yells at him, forces him to do everything, and beats him with her frying pan. Despite this, Wolffy still cares for Wolnie, and Wolnie cares for Wolffy deep down. Wolffy has a cute, friendly, and innocent son named Wilie. Wolffy also occasionally works with the rest of his pack and with Wolnie's cousins and relatives.

Wolffy and Wolnie are hungry, and the goats look very appealing. Once an Episode, Wolffy plans new elaborate ways to catch and eat the goats (usually at Wolnie's demands). Wolffy's plans have varying amounts of success, but no matter how close Wolffy gets to catching the goats, Weslie and his friends always foil Wolffy's plans in the end. The goats go home, free and victorious. Wolffy never gives up and he says he'll come back to try to catch the goats again. Wolffy goes home only to receive more beatings from his wife Wolnie.

While the earlier seasons are a simple Road Runner vs. Coyote story, the show's later seasons and its movies add in more unique fantasy, action, and exploration with new settings and characters.

There's also a Spin-Off called Pleasant Goat Fun Class, where the characters are aged-down adventurers who learn all about the world around them.

The show is very obscure in most places outside of its home country, though some people watch it while learning Mandarin. In the 2010's, an Asian English dub aired on Disney Channel networks in the Asia-Pacific region, but the Disney contract was cancelled before it was supposed to end in 2016. In the United States, the season Dear Little Wish and the first two seasons of Fun Class could be watched on Miao Mi before it was removed from Amazon. Creative Power Entertaining began uploading the English dubs for free on their official channel on YouTube and then went on an unexplained hiatus and deleted the episodes after they began. Eventually, a new channel was created for English episodes.


"Even though I'm just a little goat, I have more tropes than you can imagine...":

    open/close all folders 
    A-E 
  • 1 Million B.C.: In the seventh film, Weslie, Paddi, and Wolffy all end up stuck in prehistoric times after Paddi messes with Mr. Slowy's time camera, and the others have to go find them.
  • Aborted Declaration of Love: In the sixth film, the goats try to get Prince Pegasus to tell Princess Blue that he loves her. After a few seconds of struggling to admit his feelings to her, he decides not to at the last second and instead says "I love watching Pleasant Goat!"
  • Absurdly Long Limousine: The title card of episode 495 shows Wolffy getting off of a long, golden limousine to walk a red carpet surrounded by enthusiastic fans. He then slips on a watermelon someone drops on the carpet.
  • Ac CENT Upon The Wrong Syl LA Ble: Happens occasionally in the English dubs, such as with Tibbie pronouncing "inventory" as "in-VEN-to-ry" in episode 48 of Mighty Little Defenders.
  • Accessory-Wearing Cartoon Animal: Almost everyone wears some kind of article of clothing. The goats wear shoes, for example.
  • Accidental Hero: In Mighty Little Defenders episode 16, the goats are given a surprise visit by Worley and Wolffy gets the idea to close the door behind him to ensure the goats don't escape. He inadvertently crushes Worley's tail with the door, and when the goats cheer him on for it he decides to play along by barking frantically (since he's a dog) at Worley.
  • Accidental Proposal: In the seventh film, Wolffy, while trapped in the prehistoric age and stuck in Paddi's body, hits one of the prehistoric goats with a stick in an attempt to stun it. The goat he hits is a female named Miss Lotus, and unfortunately for Wolffy, hitting another goat with a stick is the prehistoric goats' way of showing their affection for each other and gets him engaged with Miss Lotus.
  • Accidental Truth:
    • In Joys of Seasons episode 21, Mr. Slowy tells the other goats that what's clearly a lunar eclipse is actually a mythical creature called the Tengu eating it. The goats are instructed to band pots/pans and wooden spoons together to scare it away, only for them to be told later on that it's just a lunar eclipse and there is no Tengu... except there actually is someone on the moon trying to eat it. In this case, though, it's subverted since the creature eating the pancake moon is actually just Wolffy, who is turning it into a heart shape as a gift for Wolnie.
    • In Marching to the New Wonderland episode 3, to scare the goats into paying more attention to their mission, Mr. Slowy comes up with a story about a Great Demon King that lives in the big tree they're travelling through. He then notices multiple ants outside running away and panicking about the Great Demon King. Also subverted, as they're referring to the Spider of Justice who annoys everyone with the sheer amount of Unwanted Assistance he gives.
  • Acronym Confusion: In one strip of the Pleasant Goat Fun Class manhua, Paddi hears the acronym "WTF" and thinks, "Where's the food?" It actually means "World Taekwondo Federation".
  • Adaptational Nice Guy: Wolffy in Pleasant Goat Fun Class. He's still a bit rude sometimes, but he doesn't do anything nearly as evil or harmful as he does in the original show.
  • Adaptation Species Change: Mr.Wolffy, Mr.Right! changes Wolffy into a human.
  • Adult Fear: Kids disappearing, kids getting eaten, wife and child about to be incinerated.
  • Age Lift: In the main series, Wolffy is an adult while the goats are kids. In Pleasant Goat Fun Class, however, he is a young kid just like the goats.
  • Ageless Birthday Episode: As no one's age has been confirmed, any Birthday Episode doesn't give the character's age.
  • The Alcoholic: Sometimes, characters are shown to drink actual bottles of wine and feel the effects of it.
  • Alien Episode: Episode 47 is about the goats and wolves encountering Little Green Men who have landed on Earth.
  • Aliens Speaking English: The egg aliens in Joys of Seasons can speak Chinese perfectly fine.
  • Alien Abduction:
    • Limbless Egg people abduct Tibbie and Wolffy; the latter has it happen to him twice- it's never shown how he got away.
    • The whole conflict of the third movie is centred on alien abduction. Granted, the aliens were... vegetables and fruits.
  • All Deserts Have Cacti: In the second movie, Lord Japper creates an amusement park right where Goat Village is. The amusement park uses up energy from the ground, causing the surrounding area to dry up and become a desert... which somehow has cacti growing everywhere despite the series taking place in China which doesn't have cacti.
  • All for Nothing: In Joys of Seasons episode 45, Paddi wants to send Little Knife Goat some snow since he's never seen any before, being from the desert. Paddi goes far away into the desert just to deliver the snow, but at the end of the episode his effort is wasted because Mr. Slowy invited Little Knife Goat to the snow-covered Goat Village.
  • All Just a Dream: Joys of Seasons episode 1 ends with Mr. Slowy realizing it was a dream. Then after the episode ends, we see Wolffy asking for help.
  • Alliterative Family: Wolffy, Wolnie, and Wilie are a wolf family. Their names all start with the letter "W".
  • Alliterative Name: An alliterative location name. Green Green Grassland repeats the letter "G".
  • Alliterative Title: The song called "Chai Chai Chai".
  • Almost Kiss: In Joys of Seasons episode 92, Wolnie dances with Wolffy while they have Sparky sitting in their cauldron, ready to be cooked. Wolffy and Wolnie try to kiss each other after they dance, but Sparky shouts at them angrily, interrupting the kiss.
  • Alternative Foreign Theme Song: The Hindi dub Kya Bakra Hai! features an entirely different theme song with a much more Indian feel to it. No one's sure why they didn't just dub the original theme song.
  • Amazing Technicolor Wildlife: Merry the mouse, from Paddi the Amazing Chef, has pink fur.
  • Ambiguously Gay: Leo the shark still wants Wolffy even after discovering he was only pretending to be a female shark.
  • Amusement Park:
    • Pleasant Goat Fun Class: The Earth Carnival has an amusement park with fun attractions, games, and rides that the characters get involved with.
    • In the second film, Lord Japper the tiger builds an amusement park right where Goat Village is. The goats have to put a stop to the amusement park when it uses up enough energy from the ground that it quickly dries up the surrounding area.
  • Amusing Injuries: Some of the humor comes from the many different ways that Wolffy gets hurt, such as being hit with frying pans, being trampled, being bitten by piranhas, etc. Other characters also have amusing injuries to a lesser extent. Of course, none of these injuries have any long effects on the characters and they're always better in the next scene.
  • Anachronism Stew: The franchise is supposed to take place in 3513, but the season Around the World in 20 Days has the goats visit the 2010 Shanghai World Expo.
  • And There Was Much Rejoicing:
    • Any time the goats defeat the wolves, characters are happy.
    • Whenever the Big Bad of the movies is defeated, others celebrate.
  • And This Is for...: In Joys of Seasons episode 22, Wolnie throws multiple frying pans at Banana Wolf, saying that each strike is for a specific kind of food as she does so.
    Wolnie: This is for eggs! This is for veggies! (grabs huge frying pan) And this... (frying pan crushes her before she can finish speaking)
  • Anthropomorphic Animal Adaptation: Mr.Wolffy, Mr.Right! is an inversion. The original show is about Funny Animal goats and wolves, while Mr.Wolffy, Mr.Right! is about humanized versions of the wolves.
  • Animation Bump: Since season 3, compared with the show's first airing. The animation has taken a significant rise in quality since then.
  • Animate Inanimate Object:
    • The sun and moon both have faces and are sentient.
    • In episode 2, Mr. Slowy invents a serum that causes any object it touches to become a strict teacher without actually changing its appearance. It works too well, causing the affected objects to become outright violent towards the goats.
    • Paddi the Amazing Chef features an anthropomorphic spoon, fork, pair of chopsticks, fridge, and bottle as characters.
    • The Tailor's Closet features anthropomorphic versions of objects you would find at a tailor's shop, such as a dresser, a pair of scissors, a ruler, a magnifying glass, etc.
  • Animated Armor: In Joys of Seasons episode 27, the ghostly Thousand-Goat Slayer possesses an inanimate suit of armor and uses it to move around and grab stuff.
  • Anime Accent Absence: In the season Pleasant Goat Fun Class: Travel Around the World, the goats go on a World Tour and meet people from different countries. All of the people they meet can speak fluent Chinese with no foreign accent.
  • Animesque: Granted, most Asian Animation has shades of this. With cute character designs, Cross-Popping Veins, Sweat Drops, and more, it very clearly has an anime influence. Though later seasons look slightly more American.
  • Antagonist Title: The film I Love Wolffy and its sequel, I Love Wolffy 2, both have titles referring to the series' main antagonist, Wolffy.
  • Anthropomorphic Food: The antagonist of the third movie is the Gourd King. Besides his many gourd soldiers, the Gourd King also has minions who are a winter melon, a pumpkin, a cantaloupe, and a watermelon.
  • Anvil on Head: In episode 5, Wolffy eavesdrops on Weslie mentioning the password to the Goat Village gate's lock to Sparky. It's actually the wrong password, causing him to get hit by a falling weight.
  • Apple of Discord: The trope-naming story from Classical Mythology is referenced in Joys of Seasons episode 30, where, to distract Wolnie and Fragrant Wolf and rescue Tibbie and Sparky, Jonie sets out an apple for them. Wolnie and Fragrant Wolf nicely insist to each other that they should eat the apple... and then Wolnie notices the box that the apple came in says "To the world's prettiest lady" on the side of the lid, which causes them to get into a fierce argument over who should eat it. Wolffy suggests sharing it, which turns into a problem when he can't get the apple to cut into halves. The apple is actually a bomb and blasts all three wolves out of Wolf Castle.
  • April Fools' Plot:
    • Weslie once spent an episode pranking his friends, while Wolffy created a "prank-compelling" potion. The moral was not to prank people since this ended rather badly for both of them.
    • Happens again when Troll Mr. Slowy pretends to be dying to get back at the goats.
  • Arboreal Abode: Yang Guoguo from Mighty Little Defenders lives in a big tree with a door, several windows, etc.
  • Arch-Enemy: Wolffy and Weslie are constantly fighting due to the former wanting to eat the latter and his friends.
  • Argument of Contradictions: In Mighty Little Defenders episode 4, Slowy and Blady have three arguments like this. Firstly, when the goats find a fork in the road they're walking on, Blady wants to take the path on the right while Slowy wants to take the one on the left ("Right road!" "Left road!"); then, Slowy wants to take a break from walking while Blady doesn't want to stop ("Take a break!" "Keep moving!"); and finally, Slowy wants to take a river path while Blady wants to walk on the mountain path ("Take a boat!" "Walk!").
  • Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking:
    • In Qing Qing, stealing, disturbing the peace, kidnapping, etc. are all illegal, as well as running on grass.
    • This trope also covers most of the wolves' crimes, which really do range from arson to stepping on blades of grass.
  • Art Evolution: The simple Flash animation has improved significantly over the years. Starting with The Little Detective, the characters have smaller horns, smaller noses, bigger eyes, and smoother lines. They are also more expressive.
  • Art Initiates Life: Occurs in Joys of Seasons episode 78. A drawing of Wolnie comes to life and chases after Wolffy.
  • Art Shift: In the second movie, the animation becomes a Mario-style video game when Weslie and Wolffy enter the temple. The Mario-esque sequences now happen frequently in the show.
  • Art-Shifted Sequel:
    • Mr.Wolffy, Mr.Right! has a paper art style with exaggerated expressions.
    • The season War of Invention has a clean, simple, and cartoony art style that reminds many of the later seasons of Happy Heroes. This art style is only used for that one season. Mighty Little Defenders is the sequel to War of Invention and it goes back to the original style.
    • Pleasant Goat Fun Class goes for a simple and cute art style aimed at preschoolers.
  • Artifact of Doom: The pin of misfortune, which screws over everyone that comes in contact with it.
  • Artistic License – Sports: Episode 60 is a Mini-Golf Episode. Even without getting into the fact that Wolffy tries to break the rules, there's still a minor example of the trope. The characters' scores aren't kept on paper scorecards like in real golf. Instead, their scores appear to only be recorded on a big scoreboard.
  • Artsy Beret: In Joys of Seasons episode 18, Tibbie has a pink beret with a sort of checkerboard pattern on it that she wears a few times as she is painting pictures.
  • Asleep for Days: Purposely invoked by Paddi in an effort to win the Qing Qing world record for the Grassland's best sleeper. He lost out to a fatigued Wolffy, who managed to sleep even longer (and counting).
  • Asleep in Class: Paddi, who is Really Fond of Sleeping, tends to fall asleep while he's in school with the other goats.
  • Ass in a Lion Skin: The very first scheme Wolffy ever concocted to catch the goats was to dress up as a goat and try to convince the goats that he's their relative.
  • Attack Reflector:
    • In Joys of Seasons episode 28, Weslie holds up a mirror as Wolffy tries to capture him with his magic camera. The mirror causes Wolffy to take a picture of himself, thus getting him sucked into the camera instead.
    • In The Tailor's Closet episode 2, the sentient magnifying glass tries to attack Wolffy by going to a nearby window and using itself to try to aim the sun's heat at him. Wolffy uses a mirror to deflect the attack.
  • Audible Gleam: Wolffy's teeth have an audible gleam in the opening of Joys of Seasons.
  • Audience Shift:
    • Pleasant Goat Fun Class is aimed at a younger audience than the original. It features cuter designs, less drama, and more education.
    • Mr.Wolffy, Mr.Right! is aimed at a slightly older audience. This is apparent due to it being about Wolffy's relationships at the workplace.
  • Baby Morph Episode: In episode 37 of Flying Island: The Sky Adventure, Slowy eats a fruit that turns him into a baby and he is taken in by the Elder Stars. The goats have to figure out a way to turn him back to normal for the next several episodes.
  • Back from the Dead: Someone dies in episode 41 of Rescue Across Time and then gets resurrected in the following episode.
  • Bad "Bad Acting": Wolffy forces the goats to make a film with him. Spectacularly bad acting is the result.
  • Bag of Kidnapping: In the fifth film, Weslie, of all characters, grabs a bag and traps Brother Bill the snake in it so that they can shut him up and bring him to the Ark spaceship. Wolffy even says that it feels more like something he would do.
  • Bait-and-Switch: In the Episode Title Card for episode 60, Weslie and Wolffy look pretty mad and they have their arms clenched like they're about to fight each other. It turns out they just want to happily play Rock–Paper–Scissors.
  • Baleful Polymorph: In Mighty Little Defenders, Wolffy is accidentally transformed into a dog. Initially he doesn't like this change at all, but eventually he uses his new form to go undercover and gain the goats' trust.
  • Balloon Belly: Anytime anyone eats too much, their belly becomes inflated.
  • Bamboo Technology: Quite literally in the fifth film, where the snake family owns a fully functional television made of bamboo.
  • Banana Peel: In Pleasant Goat Fun Class: Travel Around the World episode 20, Wolffy slips on a banana peel and only barely lands on his toes.
  • Barefoot Cartoon Animal: Almost everyone lacks shoes. The goats avert this.
  • Barrier Warrior: In Marching to the New Wonderland, Jonie's train, the Rainbow Train, has the ability to create a shield dome around itself. In Mighty Little Defenders, Jonie herself gains the same ability.
  • Baseball Episode: Similar. Pleasant Goat Fun Class: Sports are Fun is basically an entire season dedicated to the characters learning about and playing different kinds of sports.
  • Batman Can Breathe in Space: The gang has no problems breathing without their spacesuits while on the moon in the Moon Castle: The Space Adventure film.
  • Beach Episode: A manhua story has all the goats have fun at the beach.
  • Bears Are Bad News: In Smart Dodging episode 29, Wolffy sets up a cage trap for the goats, but catches a baby polar bear in the trap instead. The baby polar bear's mother and father are not amused and immediately chase after Wolffy.
  • Bee Afraid: In episode 2, Wolffy is covered in honey as he enters Goat Village. Weslie then unleashes a horde of bees on him, which he is not happy with in the slightest.
  • Befriending the Enemy: In Mighty Little Defenders, after 14 long years and 19 seasons of constantly fighting each other, the goats and wolves finally become allies.
  • Big Ball of Violence: In Mighty Little Defenders episode 6, the dog tribe attacks Dao Yang, creating a big cloud of dust with their heads sticking out.
  • Big Damn Movie: Three movies, all with very dramatic plots, much more so than the show:
    • The first movie is about the goats going into the body of Mr. Slowy's snail to fight a bacteria war.
    • The second is about everyone working together to save Qing Qing grassland.
    • The third film is about them saving the moon.
  • Big Eater: Paddi is known to eat a lot of food, particularly cake and candy. He likes candy so much that he builds a house out of it in the Joys of Seasons episode "Candy House Fantasy".
  • Big Fancy Castle: Subverted with the monkey king's castle. It just looks big and fancy from a distance; it's actually a cardboard cut out made to look formidable.
  • The Big Race: Episode 241 has the goats participating in a dragon boat race. The wolves go into the giant Chinese tamale serving as the prize for winning the race, hoping that the goats will win so that they can pop out of the tamale when the goats take it home with them.
  • Big, Thin, Short Trio: The villains of the second movie consist of Lord Japper the tiger (big), Leopold the leopard (thin), and Counsoler the gecko (short).
  • Big Word Shout: In Joys of Seasons episode 49, Wolffy has his sewing robot help him to trap the goats in a pit he's set up once they fall into it. Wolffy himself falls into the pit instead, but the robot sews the pit shut anyway and Weslie and Sparky taunt Wolffy as he's being trapped in the pit; by the time the robot is finished sewing, Wolffy shouts "NUMBSKULL!!!"
  • Big "YES!": Weslie lets out a big "Yay!" at the end of the Flying Island: The Sky Adventure opening.
  • Bilingual Bonus: The wolves' Chinese names end in "太狼" ("Tàiláng"). This is a pun on the Japanese language. "太狼" ("Tàiláng") and "太郎" ("Tàiláng") are homophones in the Chinese language, and "太郎" is also the Japanese name Tarō, meaning "the first son". Japanese names can appear aggressive in the Chinese language, and this fits the evil wolves.
  • Binocular Shot: Whenever Wolffy sits on the branch and looks through his binoculars, the show usually has a binocular shot showing what Wolffy's looking at.
  • Bird-Poop Gag: In Joys of Seasons episode 55, Wolffy gets pooped on by a bird while watching over the Goat Village gate being guarded by what looks to be Master Pao Pao and Brother Tai, but are actually cardboard cutouts. The bird is distracted by a female of the same species and hits the gate, causing one of the cardboard cutouts to fall over.
  • Bishie Sparkle: In Happy, Happy, Bang! Bang! episode 27, as Wilie gives Angelalily his scarf to replace the one he ruined by accident and asks if she can be friends with him, she imagines him with a lot of bright sparkles.
  • Bizarrchitecture: Pleasant Goat Fun Class takes place in a building that has a spinning flower and a giant pencil.
  • Bizarre and Improbable Ballistics: Wolffy invokes this in episode 60. He uses a device to change the way golf balls move while they're in the air, and he can make golf balls end up in places where the law of physics normally wouldn't take them.
  • Black-and-White Morality: The show started out this way: goats were all good and wolves were all bad, until it began to steadily become Morality Kitchen Sink.
  • Bland-Name Product: The fourth film shows Jonie playing with a "Pear" brand tablet, a reference to the Apple company.
  • Blue Is Heroic: Kid Hero Weslie is associated with the color blue.
  • Bowdlerise: Applies to Mighty Little Defenders. The National Radio and Television Administration forced Creative Power Entertaining to edit the fighting scenes to make them more suitable for kids. They also forced CPE to change some of the weapons.
  • Blush Sticker: The Pleasant Goat Fun Class versions of the characters have permanent blush stickers.
  • Body Horror: Mostly happens to Wolffy. He liquefied himself once and regained solidity, then melted when splashed with water, and the limbs went first. He got his head switched with his butt once, and had many unpleasant things happen to his tail.
  • Body Pocket: In Mighty Little Defenders episode 3, Mr. Slowy turns his "pockets" inside out when he looks for Yang Guoguo's postcard and realizes it's missing.
  • Booby Trap: The house Paddi, Sparky, and Blady visit in Mighty Little Defenders episode 6 has one that Sparky sets off by accident, leading to him being trapped in a chamber underground where he runs on a treadmill to avoid falling in a pit of cockroaches while being subjected to a shower of water and the horrid stench of a sock. It's also in this chamber where Sparky finds a belt made by Uncle Gogoa that gives its wearer the power of increased strength.
  • Borrowed Catchphrase: Anytime anyone other than Wolffy cries "I'll be back!" Often, if Wolffy is in the vicinity, he'll shout something like "Hey, that's my catchphrase!"
  • Boxing Kangaroo: In Joys of Seasons episode 23, a kangaroo is shown punching a punching bag, complete with him wearing boxing gloves.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall:
    • Wolffy breaks the illusion of storytelling when he says, "I'm the best actor in this cartoon!"
    • Pleasant Goat Fun Class is designed to be educational, and it often accomplishes this by having the characters directly talk to the audience about various topics.
    • In Rescue Across Time episode 41, Wolffy says that he has known Weslie for over 5,000 episodes (though that number is slightly embellished).
  • Breath Weapon: In the seventh film, the stone dragon can turn anything into stone using its breath.
  • Brown Note: In one episode, Wolffy invents a conch to lure the goats to sleep.
  • Bucket Booby-Trap: In Joys of Seasons episode 9, the goats play an April Fools' prank on Mr. Slowy by placing a bucket full of water on top of the door to their school to spill on him.
  • Bullet Seed: The watermelon boy in the third movie can spit watermelon seeds as one of his attacks.
  • Bullet Time: One scene in the second film emulates this effect when Wolffy throws a bunch of arrows at Leopold. When Leopold dodges the arrows, the scene slows down and the camera moves around him, complete with a ripple trail coming from the arrows.
  • Bunnies for Cuteness: Earth Sister, the rabbit who guides the goats around the amusement park rides in Pleasant Goat Fun Class: The Earth Carnival, is a pretty adorable and nice little rabbit.
  • Burning with Anger: In the first movie, when Mr. Slowy gets angry at Wolnie for pestering him over Wolffy, he is surrounded by a flame.
  • Butt Biter: In Joys of Seasons episode 18, Wolffy freezes still at the sight of a snake, and Tibbie uses the frozen Wolffy as a model for one of her paintings. After she's done painting, Wolffy goes to catch her and winds up with the snake biting him in the behind.
  • Butt Sticker: In Mighty Little Defenders episode 8, Huiertai accidentally lands on Wolffy, who ends up Squashed Flat on his bottom.
  • By the Lights of Their Eyes: In episode 3 of Marching to the New Wonderland, the lights are turned off completely, leaving only the Spider of Justice's eyes and Mr. Slowy's glasses visible.
  • Cain and Abel: In the first movie, Cha Cha and Dong Dong, who spend most of the film fighting each other during the war between the White Bull Kingdom and the Black Bull Kingdom, are revealed to be brothers.
  • Came from the Sky: In Joys of Seasons episode 3, a meteorite lands near Goat Village and creates a big crater, and the goats try to identify what it is. It reveals itself to be a friendly flower alien named Little Flower.
  • Camera Abuse:
    • The title card of Joys of Seasons episode 10 has Weslie and Sparky shooting at the screen, creating visible cracks.
    • In the beginning of Joys of Seasons episode 78, Wolnie hits Wolffy with his frying pan and sends him up against the camera, where he then slides down and falls.
    • In the first movie, when Wolffy tells Wolnie that they should probably let the goats enjoy their New Year's holiday, Wolnie hits him with a frying pan, causing him to hit the screen.
    • In the fourth film, Sparky hits Tyranno-Rex with his 10,000-pound hammer, causing him to crash into and crack the screen.
  • Camping Episode: Joys of Seasons episode 11 has the goats going on a camping trip. While there, Mr. Slowy gives Paddi some distress signal pants he can use to call the other goats if he needs help.
  • Canine Companion: In Mighty Little Defenders, Wolffy becomes a dog and the Team Pet of the goats.
  • Canon Discontinuity: Creative Power Entertaining ignores the two live-action I Love Wolffy movies whenever possible. They do not list the movies on their website and they have not uploaded the movies to YouTube.
  • Canon Foreigner: The theatrical films feature characters that are made specifically for them and never appear in the original TV show.
  • Cartoon Bomb: In Smart Dodging episode 29, the wolves throw bombs at the gate to Goat Village. The bombs they use are the typical cartoon bombs that are black in color, shaped like a sphere, and have a fuse at the top.
  • Cartoon Creature: Downplayed. Weslie is clearly either a sheep or a goat, but Creative Power Entertaining can't determine which. The word "goat" is used in most English translations, though a few translations say he is a sheep.
  • Cartoon Juggling: In Mighty Little Defenders episode 45, General Wolf becomes uncharacteristically nice to Wolffy and has his wolf soldiers try to entertain him. One of them, upon realizing Wolffy isn't enjoying his violin music, switches to juggling balls. The "shower" type of cartoon juggling is used here.
  • Cartoon Meat: A golden trophy shaped like manga meat appears in Happy Happy Bang! Bang! episode 28.
  • Casual Interstellar Travel: Anyone can go up to space in a few minutes because they all just conveniently have spaceships.
  • Catapult Nightmare: In Joys of Seasons episode 2, after having a nightmare about Wolffy attacking him, Paddi wakes up and flings himself upward on his bed into a sitting position.
  • Catchphrase:
    • Wolffy has several catch phrases. He shouts often "Darn goat! I'll be back for sure/ I'll definitely come back/ I'll be back!"
    • Paddi's "I don't want to die."
    • Tibbie's "It's good/bad for the skin."
    • Wilie has at least two: "Look, daddy's flying again!" and "Dad, you lied to me!"
  • Catching Some Z's: A line of Z's appears next to characters fairly often when they sleep. To give one example, in episode 1, Paddi is seen sleeping and some Z's appear next to him.
  • Caught in a Snare: In episode 60, Wolffy gets hurt and while he's distracted, he steps in a snare that makes him hang from a tree off his foot. It doesn't last that long because the tree falls over.
  • Celebrity Paradox: A joke in the sixth film has Prince Pegasus being encouraged to confess his romantic feelings to Princess Blue and struggling to say his line, only to cop out at the last second and say "I love watching Pleasant Goat!" instead. If this quote is anything to go by, the Pleasant Goat TV show (and presumably the films, manhua, merchandise, etc. as well) somehow exists within the Pleasant Goat universe itself.
  • Cephalothorax: Paddi's pet fried egg, Eggy, has his arms and legs directly connected to his midsectionless head.
  • Circling Birdies: Happens multiple times to different characters, with several variations such as circling stars and circling wolf heads.

  • Collapsing Lair: In the first movie, Sparky accidentally blows up a bomb made by Wolffy near the control panel in Cha Cha's lair, causing the lair to fall apart and flood. Everyone makes it out of the lair perfectly fine except for Weslie, who seemingly gets trapped in the lair, but even then he later makes it out perfectly fine as well because he landed in Granny Snail's slime and used some growing pills left by Wolffy to grow back to his normal size.
  • Color-Coded Characters: The six main goats have specific colors associated with them (Weslie is blue, Paddi is yellow, Sparky is brown, Tibbie is pink, Jonie is red, and Slowy is green).
  • Combination Attack: In Mighty Little Defenders episode 34, the goats fight a squad of little wolves, and Paddi combines his ability to make distractingly delicious food with a twister Sparky made with the boxing gloves generated by his belt to stop the wolves; this gives Jonie a chance to use her healing stone to create a barrier around them, which Tibbie ties shut with a vine from her bow and arrow, with Sparky punching the barrier and the wolves within right into the sky. Later in the same episode, those four goats all use their weapons at once to shoot a beam at General Wolf, but this attack depletes the weapons' power and makes them unusable.
  • Comic-Book Adaptation: The show has a magazine with comics featuring the characters.
  • Comically Missing the Point: In the first movie, when Wolnie asks Mr. Slowy where Wolffy is, her son Wilie copies her when she says "Mr. Slowy, where have you taken my husband to?", and Wolnie tells him that he should refer to him as his dad instead of his husband. Wilie then says "Dad, where have you taken my husband to?"
  • Companion Cube: Wonky owns a little wooden doll he used to play with and talk to as a kid. This doll was the closest thing he had to a friend as a kid, as all the other wolves perceived him as a bully and ran away whenever he appeared... that is, until Wolffy saw the doll with its head broken from Wonky accidentally dropping it and decided to fix it.
  • Company Cross References:
  • Compressed Adaptation: The English dub of Flying Island: The Sky Adventure skips half of the episodes.
  • Confused Question Mark: When characters are confused or surprised, question marks might briefly appear over their heads.
  • Conspicuous CG: The films mix CG into the traditional animation. For example, the panda family in The Mythical Ark: Adventures in Love & Happiness and the dragons in Mission Incredible: Adventures on the Dragon's Trail are animated in CGI.
  • Continuity Nod:
    • In Joys of Seasons episode 26, Night Wolf tells Wolffy he owes him one after the latter captures Weslie, Paddi, Tibbie, and Sparky. He then says "Remember the pancake incident?", referencing episode 21 of the same season where Wolffy flies to the pancake moon and tries to eat it into the shape of a heart for Wolnie after Night Wolf's wife, Fragrant Wolf, tells him she wants the moon.
    • In the fourth film, when Weslie and Wolffy are trapped under tons of debris after defeating the giant metallic dragon, Wolffy asks Weslie if he can take a bite out of him since he's traveled a desert and explored the moon, referencing the previous two films in the series (in the second film, an amusement park built over Goat Village uses up enough energy that it dries up the surrounding area and creates a desert that Weslie and Wolffy have to traverse, and in the third film the gang goes to the moon to defeat the Bitter Gourd King).
    • In Mighty Little Defenders episode 58, Wolfram molds a mud figure into the shape of Wolffy... in the art style of Pleasant Goat Fun Class.

  • Cool Shades: In an official GIF, Weslie wears shades. He takes them off to reveal another pair of shades beneath it reading "excellent".
  • Cool Train: In Marching to the New Wonderland and its sequel seasons, the goats pilot the Xiha trains, which all have cool functions that come in handy (Jonie's train can create forcefields to protect others, for example). In the sequel seasons to Marching in the New Wonderland, they take on forms suited for sea travel and flying through the air as well.
  • Counting Sheep: Attempted by Mr. Slowy in Joys of Seasons episode 1. It suddenly becomes morning by the time he makes it to five sheep.
  • Covers Always Lie:
    • For the eighth movie with the posters from 2016 and later on. The posters have the characters appear in 2D, despite the movie being CGI. The poster released in 2018 finally averts this by showing the CGI style.
    • The English thumbnail for the "Coincidance" video originally said it is a "Dance showdown between Wolnie and Paddi". In reality, Wolnie does not even appear in the video, and it stars Wolffy instead. The thumbnail later had its text corrected to mention Wolffy in place of Wolnie.
  • Cranial Eruption: Wolffy sometimes gets a bump on his head when he gets hit there.

When his Puppy-Dog Eyes don't work, Wilie pretends to cry and makes Wolffy and Wolnie think he needs a new diaper, distracting them for long enough that Wilie and the goat boys can leave.
  • Cross-Popping Veins: It's not uncommon for a character to have cross-popping veins when they're upset or angry at another character.
  • Cultural Cross-Reference:
    • There are at least two references to Star Wars, one in the title card of episode 124 where the goats are dressed in typical Star Wars attire and are wielding lightsabers, and one in Pleasant Goat Sports Game episode 58, which is titled "Return of the Jedi". Star Wars is overall not a successful series in China.
    • The song in Pleasant Goat Fun Class: Idiom World episode 4 references the tune of "Feliz Navidad". "Feliz Navidad" is a Western Christmas song that's not that popular in China. The episode isn't even a Christmas episode.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: In episode 21 of Pleasant Goat Fun Class: Sports are Fun, Wolffy easily beats Weslie and Tibbie in a badminton game with almost no effort at all. He gets tons of points before Weslie and Tibbie get a single point. Weslie and Tibbie proceed to do the same to him and get even.
  • Cute Little Fang: The Pleasant Goat Fun Class version of Wolffy has a little fang in his mouth.
  • Crush Filter: In Happy, Happy, Bang!

  • Dismantled MacGuffin: In the fourth film, the goats and wolves have to find the key to the Dragon Den, which is split into three parts which are scattered throughout the dragons' world.
  • Disney Death: There are two in the first movie. First, Wolffy is eaten by Cha Cha, only for him and Weslie to be pooped back out when the latter uses some of Mr. Slowy's medicines on Cha Cha. Then, Weslie himself ends up stuck in Cha Cha's flooded headquarters, but comes back completely fine later after he is deposited in the toxins from Granny Snail and uses some enlargement pills left behind by Wolffy to return himself back to his normal size.
  • Distant Reaction Shot: Used quite a bit. For example, in the Joys of Seasons episode "Candy House Fantasy", Paddi yells "Gimme my candy!" and it cuts to the Earth.
  • Do Not Call Me "Paul": In Joys of Seasons episode 29, Sparky, who is known as "沸羊羊" ("Feiyangyang") in the original Chinese dub, decides he doesn't like that name and changes it to "壮羊羊" ("Zhuangyangyang"); throughout the episode, he keeps reminding everybody that he is now "Zhuangyangyang" and ignores them if they refer to him as "Feiyangyang".

Mr. Slowy notices they're all using the same excuse and doesn't believe them, instead threatening to punish them all if they don't hand in their homework.
  • A Dog Named "Dog":
    • In the English dub, you have a wolf named Wolffy. In the Chinese version and a couple dubs, the other characters are also named after their species, such as Pleasant Goat, Lazy Goat, etc.
    • Paddi owns a pet egg named Eggy.
  • Dog Pile of Doom: In the third movie, when the gang fights an army of the Bitter Gourd King's gourd minions, Wolffy, while he is bashing the heads of two of the minions together, is targeted by a bunch of other minions who form a dog pile on him.

  • Double Take: Occurs in the Joys of Seasons episode "Candy House Fantasy". Wolffy looks at a candy house and says, "Am I dreaming, or is that a candy house I'm looking at?" Then he sighs and walks away from the house. He does a double take and says, "A candy house! I wasn't dreaming about it."
  • "Double, Double" Title:
    • The season Happy, Happy, Bang, Bang!
    • Triple variant. There's a song called "Chai Chai Chai".
  • Double Standard: Abuse, Female on Male: Played straight with Wolnie and her abusing Wolffy for laughs. If a man were to hit a woman with a frying pan instead of the other way around, people wouldn't even market the show for kids.
  • Downer Ending: A large amount. Some episodes end with everyone's problems unsolved or just worse for both the heroes and villains. Every damn episode ends on a downer if you root for Wolffy.
  • Dramatic Drop: In episode 2 of Mighty Little Defenders, Wolffy is transformed into a dog. He walks on all fours and holds a painting in his mouth. When he's transformed back into a wolf, he continues walking on all fours until he realizes what he's doing and he drops the painting out of his mouth.

  • Dramatic Stutter: Occurs in episode 61. Wolffy can sing Magic Music to turn himself into paper and move however he wants. However, when the goats surprise Wolffy outside, he stutters and can't manage to sing the song. This give Jonie the opportunity to punch Wolffy.
  • Dreadful Musician: There are at least a couple episodes, one being episode 100, in which Wolffy tries to sing his own version of the show's theme song, only for his singing to sound really awful and awkward.
  • Dream Intro:
    • Joys of Seasons episode 2 begins with Paddi dreaming that he enters the canteen, sees a piece of cake sitting on top of a cupboard, reaches for it and drops it on the floor by accident, and then notices a bigger cake nearby and heads for it.
    • The first episode of Mighty Little Defenders begins with Weslie having a dream about Wolffy and the other wolves trying to attack his friends, only for him to appear with a gun to fend them off. Wolffy admits defeat and says he thinks that goats and wolves can coexist peacefully, only for a shadowed General Wolf to appear and tell Wolffy that there can be no such coexistence between the two species.

  • Dueling Messiahs: In Mighty Little Defenders, Blady and Gogoa conflict a lot because they cannot agree on how to get the wolves to stop eating the goats. Blady thinks that if the wolves are kept out, the goats will be safe, and Gogoa thinks that if the goats try to befriend the wolves, the wolves will stop trying to eat them. They argue a lot about this almost every time wolves are brought up, making it really difficult for them to work together.

  • Dynamic Entry: Little Fragrant likes to "surprise" Wilie.
  • Early Installment Weirdness:
    • The earliest known English dub calls the characters Pleasant Goat, Beauty Goat, Big Big Wolf, etc. The English dubs no longer use those names. Most later dubs use completely different names such as Weslie, Tibbie, Wolffy, etc.

  • Eastern Zodiac: The various animals of the zodiac are the subject of the earlier movies. Creative Power Entertaining was originally going to make films for all 12 of the animals in the zodiac, but stopped doing so after the seventh film. Specifically, the animals represented by the films are as follows:

    • The fifth film, The Mythical Ark: Adventures in Love & Happiness, uses the snake as its animal by featuring a family of snakes as some of its main characters. The goats have to find a snake to activate the Ark spaceship and save everyone from a big flood, which is hard for them since snakes are believed to be an extinct species to them; the snake family comprises the last known members of the species.
    • The sixth film, Meet the Pegasus, features a horse as its animal, or more specifically the pegasus. The goats try to create a happy ending for a fairy tale involving a pegasus prince who wants to marry a princess.

  • The End... Or Is It?: Mighty Little Defenders is about whether or not the goats can befriend the wolves. At the very end of the final episode, one of the wolves is upset about the newly-formed friendship and wants to stop it. This suggests that the conflict between the goats and wolves isn't really over.
  • Ending Theme: Most seasons use the original opening song, "Don't Think I'm Just a Little Goat", as the end credits song. There are exceptions to this, though, such as Flying Island: The Sky Adventure using the theme song for the season Marching to the New Wonderland as its end credits theme.
  • Endless Daytime: In Joys of Seasons episode 13, the sun apparently has a family that plans a reunion, and their presence in the sky causes it to become bright as day at 3:00 in the morning. Weslie mentions the suns will be around for the next few days, an unhappy announcement for Paddi and Wolffy since they just want to sleep.

Wolffy was actually right on the money when he suspected him of being a spy and doesn't realize it until this point.
  • Evil Gloating: Sometimes Wolffy will explain his plans to capture the goats to the goats he's trying to capture.

  • Exact Words: In Mighty Little Defenders episode 13, the wolves capture Mr. Slowy and Grany Dao Yang and are told that they may try to escape their prison by pretending to have a stomachache and asking to go to the bathroom. When Grany Dao Yang asks to go to the bathroom because he has a stomachache, the wolves refuse to let him go since they think he might be trying to escape their prison. When Grany Dao Yang changes his request so that he has to go to the bathroom because his foot hurts, the wolves open the gate for him since they were never told that they couldn't let them go to the bathroom because their feet hurt.
  • Exactly What I Aimed At: In Mighty Little Defenders episode 10, Weslie is fighting Worly and shoots some ice from his pistol that misses his opponent.

Paddi opens a closet in his house, only for a bunch of empty cans to fall on him.
  • Exposed Animal Bellybutton: Wolffy has a visible belly button.
  • Exposed Eyeballs as Eyes: One of the designs used for frogs that appear across the Green Green Grassland gives them big eyeballs that are not contained within eye sockets.

A month later, Chapper woke up to find out that the wolf tribe had lost and the leader had died. Chapper found out that Gogoa had left Goats' Village and Chapper was not welcome in the village. These events turned General Wolf against Gogoa and the other goats and he became determined to get revenge.
  • Faceless Eye: The sentient magnifying glass from The Tailor's Closet has a single eye as its only facial feature.

  • Facepalm: In Mighty Little Defenders episode 2, General Wolf does one when one of the wolves tries to shoot a cannonball at the barrier protecting Goat Village.

  • Fantastic Fireworks: In the last episode of Mighty Little Defenders, the goats and wolves shoot fireworks shaped like themselves.
  • Fantastic Flora: In Pleasant Goat Fun Class, the plants are shaped like perfect circles and curved rectangles, which is not quite how plants look in real life.
  • Fantastic Fruits and Vegetables: Flying Island: The Sky Adventure episode 5 features weather fruits. Small weather fruits are used for cooling, medium weather fruits are used for cleaning, and large weather fruits are used for controlling the weather.
  • Fatal Fireworks: Occurs in episode 61. The goats catch Wolffy and send him flying up into the sky on a firework, which then explodes.
  • Feather Fingers: In Pleasant Goat Fun Class: Travel Around the World episode 25, the goats travel to Argentina and meet some anthropomorphic birds who dance the Tango with them. The birds use their wings like hands to hold on to them.
  • Feud Episode: In Joys of Seasons episode 30, Tibbie and Jonie get into an argument over who should pretend to be the mother of Tibbie's toy doll. The argument ends with the toy doll breaking, which makes Tibbie sad and causes her to tell Jonie she doesn't want to play with her anymore. Weslie, Paddi, and Sparky decide to come up with a plan to bring them back together.
  • Fingerless Hands: In the first movie, the various bacteria from the White Bull Kingdom and the Black Bull Kingdom do not have visible fingers on their hands.
  • Fire-Breathing Diner:
    • In Marching to the New Wonderland episode 3, Weslie and Paddi eat some of the Spider of Justice's food, which is so spicy that it causes them to breath a big flame out of the window of the spider's house.
    • This trope occurs quite a few times in Pleasant Goat Fun Class: Travel Around the World episode 3 since hot peppers are featured heavily in it.
  • Fireball Eyeballs: Characters' eyes tend to become fireballs when they are angry.
  • Five-Episode Pilot: The first two episodes are a two-parter called "The Wolves Come", establishing the show's Road Runner vs. Coyote formula.
  • Flashback: Common. For example, in episode 173, Wolffy has a flashback to when he ate the disgusting cookies earlier.
  • Floating Advice Reminder: In Joys of Seasons episode 2, Mr. Slowy has a thought bubble with Paddi warning him that a dream he had about Wolffy attacking the goats may come true. Mr. Slowy dismisses this as nonsense.
  • Floating Clocks: In episode 4 of Pleasant Goat Fun Class: The Earth Carnival, floating clocks appear in the background when Earth Sister uses her wand to take everyone to the prehistoric age.
  • Floating in a Bubble: In Pleasant Goat Fun Class: The Earth Carnival episode 10, the goats go down several slides representing the seven colors of the rainbow. Sparky winds up trapped in an orange-colored bubble after going down the orange slide. Wolffy is also seen floating in a purple-colored bubble and collides with Sparky as he's floating in his orange bubble, causing the latter to fall to the ground in a nearby pool of water.
  • Floating Limbs:
    • The sun is sometimes depicted with hands that are not connected to it in any way.
    • The egg aliens from Joys of Seasons have floating hands.
  • Flowers of Romance: Sparky sometimes tries to win over his crush Tibbie by giving her flowers.
  • Flying Car: Throughout the Marching to the New Wonderland series, the goats' cars can fly in the air.
  • Flying on a Cloud: In Pleasant Goat Fun Class: Chapter of Animals & Plants episode 3, Wolffy appears flying on a cloud with the encyclopedia.
  • Flying Saucer: In episode 234, Wolffy uses a circular ship shaped like a flying saucer to fly to the desert.
  • Four-Fingered Hands: All the characters have four fingers on their hands. This is lampshaded in episode 46 of Mighty Little Defenders when Darker tells General Wolf he has the goats - "all five of them!" - and holds out all four of his fingers before giving a weird look at his hand.
  • Fountain of Youth: An episode centers on this when the goats need to save Mr. Slowy from dying of old age (he lied to them as payback for mocking his age) and Wolnie wants to restore her youth. There was no more water left in it because too many animals drank from it.
  • Frameup: Happens sometimes in The Little Detective, with one of the goats being framed for a crime and Weslie having to prove that they're innocent.
  • "Freaky Friday" Flip: In the seventh film, Wolffy has a body-swapping rug with him when he, Paddi, and Weslie are all transported to the prehistoric age. He and Paddi are on the body-swapping rug when they're transported, causing Wolffy to wind up in Paddi's body and vice versa for part of the movie.
  • Freeze-Frame Bonus: There's something hidden in the Mighty Little Defenders opening. You have to pause it at the right time to see it or you'll miss it. It's the dab.
  • Freeze Ray: In Mighty Little Defenders, Weslie uses a gun that shoots ice. The gun cannot be used if there is a full moon outside; otherwise, the user will be unable to move for a while.
  • Freeze Sneeze: In Pleasant Goat Fun Class: The Earth Carnival episode 7, when the gang arrives at the mesosphere, the drop in temperature is enough to make Wolffy sneeze and shiver.
  • Frying Pan of Doom: Wolnie's preferred method for punishing Wolffy is to hit him with a frying pan.
  • Fungus Humongous: In the fourth film, the Dragon's World has lots and lots of giant mushrooms growing in it.
  • Fusion Dance: In Joys of Seasons episode 40, the lucky and unlucky dolls' cans pass their expiration date and the dolls merge with each other, forming a giant doll that the goats have to avoid.
  • Fur Is Clothing: In the first episode, Weslie uses a fan to blow the disguise off of Wolffy. The air from the fan blows off the fur on Wolffy's body as if it were an article of clothing, complete with heart-print underwear being revealed underneath.
  • Gelatinous Trampoline: In the third film, Weslie's gang is chased by some of the Bitter Gourd King's soldiers into the Jelly District, consisting of ground made entirely of jelly that the characters bounce on to outrun the soldiers. They reach a cliff in the District that they have to jump extra hard to pass over, but Wilie jumps on everyone else as they're in the air, sending them flying into a wall and falling to the ground below.
  • Giant Food: Pleasant Goat Fun Class: Sports are Fun episode 5 takes place in a ski course filled with giant food such as huge popsicles and lollipops.
  • Giant Spider:
    • Wolffy runs into one in episode 65 and gets Projectile Webbing powers from it.
    • In one episode of Mighty Little Defenders, Gogoa is shown in a flashback being chased and bitten by a giant hallucination spider. It's actually being powered by a chip and shrinks to normal size once the chip is removed.
  • Glad I Thought of It: This exchange between Darker and some wolf soldiers in Mighty Little Defenders episode 48:
    Wolf soldier #1: Captain, I have an idea. We can get someone to place a big order of matches from Tibbie. Then Tibbie will be too busy making the matches and have no time for the goats.
    Darker: No way! If you ask me, we should hire a contractor to place a big order so she'll be too busy making the matches and have no time left for the goats! I think that's a better way.
    Wolf soldier #1: [leans toward a second wolf soldier's ear] Isn't that the same as what I just said?
    Darker: What? What were you saying?
    Both wolf soldiers: I mean, we have never heard a better way to do it than what you just said!
    Darker: Hmm, okay, okay. That settles it, then.
  • Glass-Shattering Sound: In Joys of Seasons episode 12, Jonie calls for Mr. Slowy when she wakes up to find Goat Village completely destroyed. Her yelling is so loud that it breaks the glass on a picture of Mr. Slowy hanging in his room.
  • Glass Smack and Slide: There are at least two instances of this combined with Camera Abuse, once in Joys of Seasons episode 78 and once in the first movie. Both times, Wolnie hits Wolffy with a frying pan, causing him to hit the screen and slide off.
  • Go-Karting with Bowser: Weslie and Wolffy are usually enemies, but they play a fun Rock–Paper–Scissors game together in the beginning of episode 60. The actual episode subverts this because while they look like they just want to happily play golf, it turns out Wolffy actually uses this as an opportunity to catch the goats.
  • God Guise: In Joys of Seasons episode 53, Wolffy disguises himself as the kitchen god whose offerings Paddi ate. Paddi, worried the kitchen god will alert the higher power about his misdeed, offers the fake kitchen god some candies to eat but gets captured by the wolf in the process, leading Weslie and Sparky to disguise as the kitchen god themselves and get back at Wolffy.
  • Golf Clubbing: In episode 60, Wolffy tries to use a golf club to attack a mouse that's bumping his golf balls.
  • Good Angel, Bad Angel: In episode 361, Paddi gives the bib he wears around his neck to Jonie. Later, a shoulder angel and devil appear when he is eating donuts and remembers that he gave the bib to Jonie, so now he doesn't have anything to use as a napkin; the shoulder angel tries to get Paddi to forget about the bib while the shoulder devil tries to get him to steal it back from Jonie. Paddi goes with the latter option, much to the surprise of the shoulder angel.
  • Good Animals, Evil Animals: The goats are good and the wolves are evil.
  • G-Rated Sex: In episode 496, Paddi kisses Sparky during a play of Sleeping Beauty and Sparky thinks he's going to be pregnant with Paddi's child.
  • Gratuitous English: Random bits of English are used here and there and English is often used on the merchandise and posters.
  • Gratuitous Japanese: The wolves' Chinese names end in "太狼" ("Tàiláng"). This is a pun on the Japanese language. "太狼" ("Tàiláng") and "太郎" ("Tàiláng") are homophones in the Chinese language, and "太郎" is also the Japanese name Tarō, meaning "the first son". Japanese names can appear aggressive in the Chinese language, and this fits the evil wolves.
  • Gravity Screw: In Joys of Seasons episode 33, the egg aliens try to steal the core of planet Earth, which causes everything on the planet to float around in the air. Nobody minds it much at first, but then everyone starts to have trouble breathing, which causes the goats to go out into space to see what the problem is and take care of it.
  • Green Aesop: In Pleasant Goat Fun Class: The Earth Carnival episode 7, there is a segment where Weslie calls Wolffy out for using too much air conditioning, saying it could make the world hotter. Earth Sister then explains to Wolffy that this is because using too much electricity sends carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, and Tibbie opens a nearby window to let in cool breezes in place of the air conditioning. The segment ends with Weslie encouraging the viewers to not use too much air conditioning.
  • Green Thumb: In Mighty Little Defenders, Tibbie wields a bow and arrow that can create big vines wherever it shoots.
  • Grenade Hot Potato: In episode 270, the characters pass around some dynamite because none of them want to get hurt by the explosion. First the wolves pass it around, but eventually the dynamite gets passed to the goats and then the goats and wolves pass it to each other. Weslie throws the dynamite at Wolffy right before it explodes.
  • Group Picture Ending: The song at the end of Pleasant Goat Fun Class: The Earth Carnival episode 6 ends with Tibbie using her selfie stick to take a picture of her and everybody else.
  • Guns Akimbo: In Joys of Seasons episode 24, when Sparky initially appears to demonstrate his skills with paintball guns, he wields two paintball guns and shoots with both of them at the same time.
  • Hair-Trigger Avalanche:
    • In Joys of Seasons episode 45, Wolnie hits Wolffy with her frying pan enough times that the sound triggers an avalanche that engulfs them. This becomes important later in the episode when Paddi, to escape from the wolves when they have him in their cauldron, deliberately makes as much noise as possible to trigger an avalanche.
    • In episode 5 of Pleasant Goat Fun Class: Sports are Fun, Wolffy screams through a megaphone and ends up causing snow to fall, later causing an avalanche.
  • Hairstyle Inertia: In Joys of Seasons episode 1, when everyone ages up from the alien spaceship circling the Earth and making it spin faster, Weslie retains the little fluff of wool over his forehead. The trope is averted for the other goats, who have all accumulated some kind of change to their wool "hairstyles" during the Rapid Aging.
  • Happy Birthday to You!: In Joys of Seasons episode 93, various characters sing "Happy Birthday" for birthday celebrations. The episode is even named after the song.
  • Hard-Work Montage: In the first episode of Mighty Little Defenders, Weslie is given a montage where he cleans up the storehouse and Wolffy has one that runs concurrently where he puts General Wolf's stuff back into his suitcase. Both montages have several parts where they are shown at the same time in a way that gives the illusion of them being directly connected to each other, such as a split-screen that makes it look like Weslie is taking something out of a box and giving it to Wolffy to pack up.
  • Hat of Power: In Joys of Seasons episode 17, Wolffy invents a hat that causes anyone who wears it to have good manners... if the pawprint symbol in front of it is flipped upside-down; otherwise, the wearer will become rude instead. Master Paopao runs into this hat and decides to wear it, not realizing it's on the rude manners setting.
  • Harmless Electrocution: Whenever a character is electrocuted, they develop some ashes on their bodies but are otherwise perfectly fine.
  • Harmless Freezing:
    • In Joys of Seasons episode 44, Sparky, in an attempt to save the goats, gets himself frozen in an icy lake along with Wolffy and Wolnie. Only Sparky is shown after having been unfrozen by the other goats, though presumably they unfroze the wolves as well since the goats have been known to save the villains from time to time; at any rate, they're completely fine upon being unfrozen.
    • It happens again in episode 46 of the same season, with Wolffy and Wolnie freezing solid while hibernating. Weslie hits them over a frog they had deprived of its hibernation, and Wolffy hits an edge of the mountain they are on and winds up being unfrozen from the ice breaking.
  • Headbutting Heroes: In Mighty Little Defenders, Blady and Gogoa conflict a lot because they cannot agree on how to get the wolves to stop eating the goats. Blady thinks that if the wolves are kept out, the goats will be safe, and Gogoa thinks that if the goats try to befriend the wolves, the wolves will stop trying to eat them. They argue a lot about this almost every time wolves are brought up, making it really difficult for them to work together.
  • Heart Beats out of Chest: In Mighty Little Defenders episode 18, Weslie discovers the earpiece Wolffy (who is going undercover as a dog to spy on the goats) uses to communicate with the other wolves. As Weslie investigates the little gadget, a panicking Wolffy's heart can be seen beating out of his chest as he worries Weslie is about to learn his doggy buddy is actually his enemy pretending to be on the goats' side.
  • Heart Symbol: In Joys of Seasons episode 5, Wolnie blows some kisses at Wolffy when she congratulates him for digging up a water fountain for them. Heart symbols emit from Wolnie's lips as she blows kisses, and Wolffy's head emits heart symbols as he faints from the kisses. Wolffy's cousin then appears and grabs one of the heart symbols which came from Wolffy's head, cracking it as he makes fun of Wolffy's fountain for being nothing more than a ditch.
  • Heel–Face Revolving Door: The wolves will sometimes team up with the goats only to become villainous towards them again afterwards. It's particularly common in the movies.
  • Heel–Face Turn: The Bitter Gourd King, in the third movie, is transformed out of his evil state after his battle with the goats and wolves. For that matter, every Big Bad and his henchmen in the movies ultimately switch to the good guys' side.
  • Heli-Critter: In Pleasant Goat Fun Class: Animals & Plants episode 1, Wolffy thinks elephants can spin their trunks to fly in the air. Weslie tells him that elephants can't do that.
  • Here We Go Again!: In Joys of Seasons episode 14, the goats have to go find special immortal grass to stop Mr. Slowy from laughing uncontrollably as a side-effect of having eaten laughing grass. The episode ends with them realizing that they fed him crying grass by mistake.
  • Heroic Fire Rescue: In Joys of Seasons episode 6, Weslie, Paddi, and Sparky all become firemen, and the climax of the episode has them take on the job of extinguishing a big fire in Wolf Castle that was deliberately started by Wolffy in an attempt to capture them. Weslie is just about to rescue Wolffy and Wolnie when Paddi and Sparky's fire extinguishers run empty, forcing them to go refill them. Weslie tells Wolffy he'll be back to rescue him and Wolnie soon... except the episode ends without him coming back, thus subverting the trope.
  • Heroic Sacrifice:
    • In the first movie, Weslie seems to sacrifice himself after saving Wilie and appears to be trapped inside the bacteria cave of Mr. Slowy's snail forever. He got out just fine.
    • In episode 499, the whole tribe of goats in the past are under the impression that Wolffy AKA the nameless hero was killed in a brawl with Martial Wolf's pack in an attempt to give them enough time to close their newly built gate. They even erect a statue in his honor, which the goats in the present regularly pay their respects to every year.
    • In the 3rd season, Wolffy does it again, telling the goats to leave him behind and go back to Qing Qing with the Deep Ocean Pearl so they can change Wolnie and Mr. Slowy back from fish to their original forms, while he's captured by the giant squid that guarded the pearl. Of course, he ends up fine.
    • In the 3rd season, Mr. Slowy volunteers to be the wolves' meal to save the reputation/well-being of the goats. He lives.
  • High-Pressure Emotion: In Marching to the New Wonderland episode 2, an angry Wolffy has steam shooting out of his ears when he realizes that the goats have gotten the Energy Seed back from him.
  • His Name Is...: In Mighty Little Defenders episode 3, Wonky misunderstands General Wolf when he tells him who the spy for the wolves is since he hears a "we" sound from General Wolf before the phone call ends abruptly. Wonky then thinks that Weslie is the spy. It later turns out that General Wolf was actually talking about washing apples.
  • Hit Flash: Hit flashes often appear when Wolnie hits Wolffy with a frying pan.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: In Mighty Little Defenders episode 3, Wolky sets up traps filled with plants with mouths to catch the goats. The plants do get a chance to bite twice, but both times, the person they bite on turns out to be Wolky himself, who gets stuck in the traps by accident.
  • Holiday Episode: There is an episode where the characters celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival.
  • Hologram: Weslie's parents communicate with him through a hologram.
  • Hollywood Mirage: In the second movie, Lord Japper throws Weslie and Wolffy into the desert, where they try to find a pyramid described Mr. Slowy as having a special totem that can make them invincible. They come across several pyramids that they think is the one they're looking for, only for them to turn out to be mirages.
  • Holding Hands: In the third movie, Wolffy and Wolnie hold hands as they and the others prepare to jump across a cliff to escape from some of the Bitter Gourd King's minions.
  • Hong Kong Dub: Happens all the time. The dialogue often doesn't match the mouth movements at all.
  • Human Cannonball: Sometimes Wolffy gets punished by getting shot out of a cannon and flying away into the sky.
  • Human Hummingbird: It's not uncommon for the characters' arms or legs to blur when they're moving really quickly.
  • Human Ladder: In Mighty Little Defenders episode 28, the goats are attacked by mud monsters taking the shape of Wolfram, and Tibbie uses her bow and arrow to create a big tree and carry herself as well as the other goats to one of its branches. The Wolfram doppelgangers stack on top of each other to reach the branch and bring the goats back down.
  • Human Snowball: In Joys of Seasons episode 47, Wolffy, in his polar bear fur coat, goes to catch Tibbie and Jonie, who are skiing down a snowy hill. He's knocked into the snow when Tibbie knocks him away and he hits Jonie, only for him to get back up with a big leap... but then he ends up rolling in the snow, becoming enveloped in a big snowball that only gets bigger as he keeps rolling.
  • The Hunter Becomes the Hunted: Usually Wolffy hunts the goats, but at the end of episode 173, the goats are under the effect of a certain food and suddenly want to hunt Wolffy.
  • Hurt Foot Hop: In episode 90 of Joys of Seasons, "Candy House Fantasy", Wolffy hits his foot on Paddi's candy house twice. Both times, he hops around as he holds his hurt foot.
  • Hypocritical Heartwarming: In Mighty Little Defenders episode 36, Wolnie protects Wolffy from the wolf duo Rolly and Raoul who are seeking to turn him in for money. Wolnie tells them that, to paraphrase, "nobody can mess with Wolffy except for me!". Wolnie has abused Wolffy for not capturing the goats a lot throughout the series, primarily in the earlier seasons.
  • Idea Bulb: Sometimes a light bulb will show above Wolffy when he comes up with one of his plans.
  • Identical Twin ID Tag: In Joys of Seasons episodes 37 to 40 (a Multi-Part Episode), the lucky and unlucky dolls are twin brothers who look exactly the same except for their color schemes. The lucky doll wears a red apron-shirt, while the unlucky doll wears a black one and has a slightly different shade of pink skin than the lucky doll.
  • Identity Amnesia: Wolnie suffers from this in the season Love You Babe, where a hit from a gene gun causes her to think she's Paddi's mother.
  • Idiosyncratic Episode Naming: Every episode of Around the World in 20 Days is named "[country name] Pavilion" (so, for example, "China Pavilion", "India Pavilion", "Israel Pavilion", etc.).
  • I Can Explain: In Joys of Seasons episode 4, Wolffy uses a variation of this phrase when Wolnie gets angry at him after she discovers her new cloak has a time bomb attached to it, which Weslie says was made by Wolffy:
    Wolnie: What on earth are you doing making a time bomb? Why are you trying to get rid of me?!
    Wolffy: I have a perfectly reasonable explanation.
  • I Need to Go Iron My Dog: In Joys of Seasons episode 7, when Paddi tries to eat the device the goats want to use to get the egg bomb out of him, Weslie leaves with the excuse that he has to go do some homework. Tibbie follows suit with the excuse that she and Jonie have flowers to water.
  • Inexplicably Identical Individuals: In Joys of Seasons episode 52, Mr. Slowy describes the story of a group of lazy goats who become hard workers after eating porridge. In his story, the lazy goats all look identical to Paddi before eating the porridge and all look identical to Mr. Slowy afterwards. Paddi lampshades this and asks why all of the goats from Mr. Slowy's story look so like him. Later in the episode, Wolffy describes a similar story about porridge, except the wolves all look like Darker before eating the porridge and look like Wolffy afterwards.
  • I'll Kill You!:
    • Said by a wolf to a goat or vice versa.
    • Wolnie's fond of saying it to Wolffy.
  • Imagine Spot: Many, many. For example, Wolffy often has imagine spots of ways to catch the goats.
  • Imagine Spotting: In Joys of Seasons episode 52, Mr. Slowy tells the goat kids the story of how some lazy, gluttonous goats invented porridge, with his flashback to the occasion featuring goats that look exactly like Paddi. When Slowy finishes his story, Paddi angrily objects and demands to know why the goats in the flashback look like him.
  • Impact Silhouette: If a character busts through the gate to Goat Village, they leave a silhouette of themselves in the gate.
  • Impostor Exposing Test: In Mighty Little Defenders episode 27, Weslie finds the other goats trapped in cages but with several of Wolfram's mud golems in each cage posing as each goat. Weslie's initial methods of trying to pinpoint the real ones fail since the golems thought a couple of steps ahead (the golems are ordinarily weak to water, but the goats' doppelgangers applied waterproof lotion to themselves; they also closely studied the actual goats' lives and personalities and can answer Weslie's questions about them easily). In the end, Weslie gets the gang's weapons back from a couple of other golems and uses them to determine who is who, since the weapons can only be used by their respective owners.
  • Improvised Parachute: In this commercial, the goats jump off a cliff and use their tissues to float back up into the sky.
  • Inconsistent Dub: Make that dubs plural. The different English dubs, subtitles, and other translated materials have numerous inconsistences between each other, and some dubs are inconsistent with themselves.
    • In particular, the characters' English names are usually Weslie, Wolffy, etc., but how consistent this is seems to be entirely at the mercy of the given material's translators:
      • The names Pleasant Goat, Big Big Wolf, etc. are used instead for the earliest known dub of the first season, as well as Miao Mi's dubs of Dear Little Wish and the first two seasons of Pleasant Goat Fun Class.
      • The first two films' official English subtitles use a different set of alternate names, with Weslie being called Happie, Paddi being called Lance, and Wolnie being called Hollie, among other examples.
      • The English dub of Mr.Wolffy, Mr.Right! also uses the name Hollie for Wolnie.
    • The English title for one of the seasons is either Joys of Seasons or Joy of Seasons.
    • The English dub of Joys of Seasons includes a four-part episode. The first three parts are called "The Lucky Can" in English and the last part is called "The Happy Can".
    • The main setting, Yangcun, is usually translated as Goat Village, but the English dub of Mighty Little Defenders changes it to Goats' Village.
  • Incredible Shrinking Man:
    • In episode 3, Wolffy invents a pill for shrinking in his attempt to catch the goats. He also invents an enlargement pill to go along with it.
    • Mr. Slowy invents a ray to shrink the goats to bacteria size in The Movie.
    • The season Marching to the New Wonderland has the goats and Wolffy shrunken down to the size of a bug. In fact, the shrunken goats end up helping a bug to deliver energy seeds to the top of a tree since those are the life force of the sun.
  • Infernal Background: Flames often appear behind Wolnie whenever she gets angry at Wolffy.
  • In Name Only: Mr.Wolffy, Mr.Right! has an entirely different story and setting and the characters look a lot different. Because of this, it doesn't really have a lot to do with the original Pleasant Goat.
  • In Space, Everyone Can See Your Face: In the third film, the goats' faces are clearly visible through their space helmets.
  • Instant Awesome: Just Add Dragons!: The fourth film, Mission Incredible: Adventures on the Dragon's Trail, is about the goats fighting off evil dragons that have taken over the world. The series otherwise does not feature dragons prominently.
  • Instant Bandages: Sometimes Wolffy will immediately get bandages on his head after he gets hit with a frying pan.
  • Instrumental Theme Tune: The Around the World in 20 Days opening has no singing.
  • Interspecies Friendship: The goats are friends with most of the other species in the village. The goats are mainly only enemies with the wolves.
  • Intra-Franchise Crossover: In one strip of the manhua, Wolffy in his Mr.Wolffy, Mr.Right! design meets Sparky and Weslie in their designs from the normal show. Wolffy doesn't stick around for very long.
  • Introductory Opening Credits: The theme songs, if they don't already name the characters, tend to at least show shots of the main characters. Examples include the Pleasant Goat Fun Class: Travel Around the World opening which shows shots of each character in a different part of the world and the Mr.Wolffy, Mr.Right! opening which shows shots of Wolffy and everyone he works with.
  • iProduct: In the fifth film, Wolffy has a robotic version of himself named iWolffy who helps him. In the same film, iWeslie, a robotic version of Weslie invented by Mr. Slowy, helps the goats and wolves on their adventure.
  • Iris Out: A common way to end an episode is with an iris out on a character, usually Wolffy.
  • Iron Butt-Monkey: Wolffy, definitely. He's been blasted into the sky, bitten by piranhas, hit with frying pans, blown up, beaten up, sliced, stabbed, and stomped on (to name a few things he goes through). A blog even counted all the crap he took. He's been hit by a frying pan 9,990+ times, been bitten by piranhas 336 times, been electrocuted 300+ times, been trampled by the goats 260+ times, etc. and still keeps coming back for more.
  • Irony: Occurs a lot, but the incident that takes the cake is the founding of the Goat Village gate. Wolffy went back in time to ruin Weslie's genes so he would be easier to catch. But since he helped his ancestors catch the goats, goats are extinct in the present. He then has to go back again to stop his ancestors from killing the goats. This time, he saves the goats, tells them how to build their gate, and tries to fend off the attacking wolves single-handedly. That's right, that is the nameless hero's identity.
  • It Was with You All Along: In the seventh film, Paddi cannot find the Dragon Artifact he needs to defeat the stone dragon when he makes it to what he thinks is where it's located. That medal Weslie made for him out of a tin container lid that appears throughout the film? That's actually the Dragon Artifact.
  • Kangaroos Represent Australia: Episode 11 of Pleasant Goat Fun Class: Travel Around the World has the gang go to Australia to find Slowy. Besides the other goats they see looking for him, there are also several kangaroos that appear throughout the episode.
  • The Ketchup Test: In Mighty Little Defenders episode 1, the wolves are hurt and have what appears to be blood on them. Wolffy tastes the blood to make sure it's actually blood, and then he says it's just tomato sauce.
  • Kid Detective: In the season The Little Detective, Weslie becomes a detective and solves mysteries.
  • Kids Driving Cars:
    • The young goats drive various vehicles in Happy Formula.
    • The young goats drive a big train in Marching to the New Wonderland.
  • Kissing Discretion Shot: In episode 495, Paddi kisses Sparky during a performance of Sleeping Beauty, but another goat appears in front of them, blocking the kiss from the audience. However, we do get to see the kiss in episode 496.
  • Language Barrier: In Pleasant Goat Fun Class: Animals & Plants episode 3, a small penguin and a large penguin can't understand each other because they don't use the same kinds of sounds. The larger penguin is actually Wolffy disguised a penguin, so he probably couldn't understand the small penguin in the first place.
  • The Last Straw: In Mighty Little Defenders episode 1, Wolffy and the other wolves are all blasted to Wolf Castle. Wolffy lands on the roof of the castle, only to have the other wolves land on him and cause him to fall into the room below, where he is struggling to carry the other wolves on his back. An envelope lands on him and is enough to make him collapse from the amount of weight he's carrying.
  • The Last Title: Two episodes of Flying Island: The Sky Adventure have titles like this, specifically episodes 55 ("The Last Sky Crystal") and 60 ("The Final Battle").
  • Later Installment Weirdness: The first season is a simple Road Runner vs. Coyote story about Wolffy attempting to catch the young goats living in Green Green Grassland. Later seasons differ with fantasy, action or plots that are just plain different. People familiar with the first season might be surprised to hear that Weslie becomes a detective in season 17 and Wolffy becomes a dog and tries to gain the goats' trust in season 29.
  • Leitmotif:
    • The goats, and any other friendly group for that matter, have a soothing, peaceful tune accompanying them.
    • When the wolves, and any other antagonistic group, attack, they have a harder, more urgent tune.
  • Lethal Chef: Episode 173 revolves around disgusting cookies. No one wants to eat these cookies, and they're bad enough to kill a goldfish with one bite.

  • Name and Name: Used for the original Chinese version, Xǐ Yángyáng Yǔ Huī Tàiláng.
  • Near-Villain Victory: Happens a lot. Wolffy gets really close to eating the goats, often even tying them up and putting them in a boiling pot, but the goats always escape at the very last minute.
  • Negative Continuity: Mainly for classic episodes, as some later seasons have more continuity. Wolffy might be in a dire situation at the end of an episode, but he's always healthy and back home at his castle by the start of the next episode.

Cue Wolffy quickly using the opportunity to attack the goats with his shrinking powder.

  • No Antagonist: The TV show has a conflict, but the 4-panel manhua is usually just about the daily lives of the goats and Wolffy appears far less often.
  • "Noah's Story" Arc: The fifth film is about the goats having to get everyone into a big spaceship called the Ark in order to escape from a big flood affecting Goat Village. At least one of each animal needs to be in the ship to activate it, which becomes a problem when the goats need to find a snake, which they believe to be an extinct species, to activate it.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: The game Where's My Water? Featuring XYY features a famous singer named Jackson Sheep, who is clearly inspired by Michael Jackson.
  • Non-Dubbed Grunts: Certain Chinese audio clips, including grunts, are left unchanged in the Khmer dub.
  • Non-Mammalian Hair: The bees in Mighty Little Defenders episode 7 have full heads of hair.
  • Non-Fatal Explosions: As expected, nobody ever actually dies from these, but it does cause distress and/or Amusing Injuries.

  • Now Which One Was That Voice?: The English dub doesn't credit the English voice actors. It only credits the original Chinese cast.
  • Numbered Sequels: The sequel to I Love Wolffy is simply titled I Love Wolffy 2.
  • Obstacle Ski Course: Heavily downplayed in Pleasant Goat Fun Class: Sports are Fun episode 5. Tibbie goes skiing and ends up being chased by a Snowlem.

  • Ocular Gushers: Upset characters might cry tears that look like waterfalls.

  • Orwellian Retcon: Earlier seasons show Wolffy tying up the goats with rope. Later seasons show Wolffy putting glowing band things around the goats instead. The earlier seasons were changed to match the later ones.
  • Our Sphinxes Are Different: In the second film, two sphinxes, one with a goat's head and one with a wolf's head, guard the temple of the totem and ask Weslie and Wolffy how many stars are in the sky. Weslie replies by saying there are as many stars in the sky as there are grains of sand in the desert, prompting the sphinxes to start counting the grains of sand. By the time Weslie and Wolffy make it out of the temple with the totem, the sphinxes are still counting the grains.
  • Out-of-Character Alert: In Mighty Little Defenders episode 51, when Weslie and Wolffy go to defeat General Wolf with the others, they notice that the elder goats Slowy, Blady, and Gogoa, as well as Wolnie and Wilie, all have doofier-looking faces than usual, and that Wolnie apparently prefers Wolffy stay a dog when not only has she consistently worked to get him back to his wolf self, she's allergic to dogs. The out-of-character elders, Wolnie, and Wilie are fakes - Darker has tricked Weslie and Wolffy into thinking they've woken up when they're actually still in his virtual reality world.
  • Pain-Powered Leap: In the second movie, Weslie and Wolffy are in the temple containing the totem they are looking for and are suddenly surrounded by flames.

  • Paper People: Episode 61 revolves around Wolffy being able to flatten himself by singing a magic song. This allows him to squeeze through the gate to Goat Village.
  • Parental Bonus: Joys of Seasons episode 42 features a pirate whose name and appearance heavily resemble Luffy from One Piece. Pleasant Goat's target audience probably isn't that familiar with One Piece, so this reference seems to be aimed at older viewers.
  • Pay Evil unto Evil: In Joys of Seasons episode 4, Wolffy tricks Master Pao Pao into believing he's going to be blown up by a time bomb stuck to him unless he gives the wolf one of the goats. When it turns out the bomb is just an alarm clock, Weslie gets back at Wolffy by doing the same thing to his wife Wolnie with the trade-off that this time, it actually is a bomb and blows them out of Wolf Castle.

  • Portal Book: In Joys of Seasons episode 20, Wolffy discovers an old book written by his great great great great great grandfather and tries to use it to catch the goats when he realizes it sucks in anyone that opens it.

  • Portal Network: In The Tailor's Closet, Wolffy invents a "Closet Network" which allows him to travel into the closets spread throughout Goat Village and scare the goats.

    • The season Marching to the New Wonderland includes the word "xīhā" in its Chinese title, meaning either "hahaha" or "hip-hop". This is a pun because the opening includes a hip-hop portion and the season itself is about Weslie's humorous adventures.

"太狼" ("Tàiláng") and "太郎" ("Tàiláng") are homophones in the Chinese language, and "太郎" is also the Japanese name Tarō, meaning "the first son". Japanese names can appear aggressive in the Chinese language, and this fits the evil wolves.

  • Recycled Title: Occasionally the show uses episode titles that are similar to, if not the exact same as previous episodes. Sometimes they will slightly change the title by using a different word with the same meaning. For example, episode 122 and Happy, Happy, Bang! Bang! episode 15 are both titled "Saving Wolffy", despite being different episodes.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: The villain Wolnie is a gray wolf who wears red clothes.
  • Red Boxing Gloves: Uncle Huiertai, one of the wolves who sometimes works alongside Wolffy, wears a pair of red boxing gloves. At least once, it's shown that he can somehow hold objects with the boxing gloves on.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: In Joys of Seasons episode 6, Tibbie's eyes turn red when she gets angry at Weslie, Paddi, and Sparky for accidentally covering her in fire extinguisher foam.
  • Red Sky, Take Warning: A variant, in that the sky is purple instead, but it still counts as the sky in the Pleasant Goat universe is generally not that color.

  • Screen Shake: The screen shakes quite a bit when Wolffy yells through a megaphone in episode 5 of Pleasant Goat Fun Class: Sports are Fun.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: In Joys of Seasons episode 21, Fragrant Wolf tells her husband she wants the moon, so he brings out a bucket of water with the moon's reflection in it.

When he makes a deal to repay Weslie and Sparky ten times over for any food he eats, he realizes that he had been keeping more food than he gave them in a closet, and he agrees to bring them to the secret supply of snacks and let them eat however much from the stash they want. Wolffy then finds the stash and shows Wolnie, which worries the goats when they start to take food from the cave for themselves.
  • Secret Weapon: In Joys of Seasons episode 35, Weslie uses a soda can as a "secret weapon" against Wolffy while Paddi is watching, and later he uses a straw to shoot a poisonous cactus spike at Wolffy, again as a "secret weapon" and while Sparky is nearby.

  • Sequel Hook: Mighty Little Defenders is about whether or not the goats can befriend the wolves. At the very end of the final episode, one of the wolves is upset about the newly-formed friendship and wants to stop it. This suggests that the conflict between the goats and wolves isn't really over and that it's possible for more stories to be written about their conflict.
  • Series Continuity Error:
    • Wolnie gave birth to four cubs in the third movie but in the seasons following that movie, Wilie is still an only child. Wolffy does mention the new cubs once in the fourth movie, however.
    • There's the matter of Wolffy's scar. The third movie showed him with it when he met Wolnie, the series showed him without it in the first years of their marriage.
    • Wolffy and Wolnie's marriage itself. The early seasons implied they had dated before it was retconned by The Movie into an arranged wedding.
    • Weslie was once seen as a Lightning Bruiser, able to outrun Wolffy at every turn and curb stomp him with just his feet and hands. It never happened again.
    • Wolffy and Wolnie were terrified/shocked at seeing a tiger in an early episode (actually Paddi, Sparky, and Weslie in disguise), which raises some questions since they don't seem to mind Brother Tai and in season 3, Wolffy was seen being bullied by a tiger in his childhood.

    • In Pleasant Goat Fun Class: Chapter of Animals & Plants episode 2, Weslie feels the need to point out that "Tree squirrels live in the trees, ground squirrels live in grounds, and rock squirrels live in rock crevices!" as if it weren't already easy to tell by reading the names of the types of squirrels he describes.
  • Shapeshifting Failure: In Mighty Little Defenders episode 28, Wolfram creates more mud golems to pretend to be him than he can take, which leads to some of the golems being unable to completely hold their shape. One of them has bunny ears, one of them has Master Paopao's head, a few of them outright have glitchy-looking features...
  • Shared Unusual Trait: Dong Dong and Cha Cha from the first film both have miscolored eyes (two red eyes and one blue eye) because they're brothers born from the same parents, who were from opposing factions and had to move to a remote mountain to be able to live with each other. The members of one faction have red eyes while the members of the other faction have blue eyes.

  • Slapstick Knows No Gender: Tibbie and Jonie are just as susceptible to Amusing Injuries as the male goats.
  • Sleeping Dummy: In Joys of Seasons episode 8, Mr. Slowy sets up a robotic dummy of himself to make it look like he's sleeping in bed while he goes out to steal watermelons from a farm since he doesn't have much to eat.

  • Snowball Fight: The goat kids have snowball fights twice in Joys of Seasons episode 48. Both times, one of them accidentally hits Mr. Slowy with a snowball; the first time, he's trying to tell the goats about how no two snowflakes being alike and yells at them for not paying attention, but the second time he's too dismayed by the fact that the identical snowflakes he discovered were just sugar snowflakes made by Wolffy to care.

  • Speedy Snail: On rare occasions, Mr. Slowy is seen riding Granny Snail, a giant snail who is quite speedy for his species and makes for a very convenient form of transportation because of this. The plot of the first theatrical film, The Super Adventure, is started when Granny Snail develops toxins in his body that make him as slow as a real-life snail.
  • Sphere Factor: Or a variant of it, anyway. Earth Sister from Pleasant Goat Fun Class: The Earth Carnival travels through the air using a spherical object, specifically a little flying globe that she stands on.
  • Spinoff: Pleasant Goat Fun Class, where the characters are much younger versions of themselves who learn about the world around them.
  • Spin-Off Babies: Pleasant Goat Fun Class makes the characters younger and cuter. It focuses on them exploring and learning about the world.
  • Spooky Painting: In Joys of Seasons episode 78, the goats make a painting that moves around and has swirling eyes. The painting doesn't scare the goats, but it scares the other characters.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: Certain episodes and seasons give the wolves enough focus that it blurs the line between whether they or the goats are the protagonists.
  • Squashed Flat: In episode 55, Jonie lays down and squashes Wolffy, causing everyone to think Wolffy is dead.

  • Tempting Fate: Any unfortunate ideas that Jonie comes up with are almost guaranteed to happen immediately after she mentions them. In particular, if she says anything related to Wolffy appearing, you'd better watch out for him.
  • Tengu: In Joys of Seasons episode 21, Mr. Slowy tells the goats about the lunar eclipse occuring in Goat Village actually being the result of a tengu trying to eat the moon. Mr. Slowy instructs the goats to bang pots/pans and wooden spoons to scare it off.

  • The Tooth Hurts: In Joys of Seasons episode 90, the end result of Wolffy and Wolnie eating Paddi's candy house is that, when they go to actually eat Paddi, their teeth crack from the cavities the candy gave them. Needless to say, neither of them are amused.

Paddi is still in their cauldron when the snow from the avalanche is dragging him around, and the cauldron ends up hitting a tree that the wolves climb to avoid the snow, causing it to catapult them into the sky.
  • Triang Relations: Type 5 for Sparky who wants Tibbie who is heavily implied to crush on Weslie. Type 12 for Wolnie, married to Wolffy, and still attracted to White Wolf who has no animosity towards Wolffy. Possibly type 4 for Pink Fox, attracted to Wolffy, who's married to Wolnie. Could also be type 7 for Wolffy, attracted to both Wolnie and Pink Fox. Played for laughs with Brother Tai and Sister Tigress- they're in love with each other, but Sister Tigress thinks he's actually in love with Wolffy.

  • Ungrateful Bastard: Wolffy's reaction to the goats saving him is usually to try to capture them anyway.

  • Untranslated Title: The season Man Jing Tou appears to be the only season that doesn't even have an English title. This is because it's a Pun-Based Title that's hard to translate. "Manjingtou" means "slow motion", but the first word "màn" (slow) is changed into the word "màn" as in "manhua".
  • Unusual Euphemism: Fried rice plays a heavy part in the wolf couple's life. Wolnie once baited Wolffy with a plate of fried rice if he promises to catch goats, the other option was getting whacked with an even bigger frying pan.

The Chinese words for "egg" (蛋, or "dan") and "bomb" (炸弹, or "zhadan") have Chinese characters that are pronounced the same but are different (蛋 and 弹 both being pronounced "dan", in this case).
  • Vlog Series: While it's just one video and not a series, this video has Weslie do a vlog in which he summarizes everything that happened in 2019 and early 2020.
  • Vocal Evolution: Practically all the main characters. Weslie's voice went from a reasonably low-pitched voice to a higher, more effeminate one.
