The main goats.note 
I look up, I look down, and everywhere I go
I'm happy there, I know, it's like a miracle

Even though I'm just a little goat
Because of me, the Earth is smiling
The beautiful sky is shining
Feel the summer wind a-blowing

Even though I'm just a little goat
I'm smarter than you can imagine
My happiness is bigger than the sky

Because I follow the sun

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 a wolf tries to catch me, we'll just make it a game for us

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
The English version of the original opening

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 lives and plays 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 children 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 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. To see tropes related to that series, go check out its trope page.

The show is very obscure in most places outside of its home country, though some people watch it while learning Mandarin. In the 2010s, an Asian English dub aired on Disney Channel networks in the Asia-Pacific region, but the Disney contract was canceled 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 
  • AcCENT upon the Wrong SylLABle: The English dubs occasionally have trouble getting the syllables' accents correct. Tibbie pronouncing "inventory" as "in-VEN-to-ry" in episode 48 of Mighty Little Defenders is one example.
  • 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 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.
  • Ageless Birthday Episode: As no one's age has been confirmed, any Birthday Episode doesn't give the character's age.
  • Agony of the Feet: In Flying Island: The Sky Adventure episode 44, one of the Elder Stars has a ball and chain as a possible prop for the Elder Stars' show, and he spins it around. The spiky ball on the chain detatches and lands on Wolffy's foot, causing him great pain that he's able to keep under control somehow.
  • 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 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.
  • 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 Guys Want Cheerleaders: In Joys of Seasons episode 66, Tibbie is one of the cheerleaders of a race and has a bunch of the boy goats at the event smitten with her. Inverted with the other two cheerleaders, who are quite gonky in contrast to Tibbie.
  • All Just a Dream: Episode 39 has Wolffy being sent by the Sheep God to do ten things that make goats happy in order to make his wife wake up from a coma after being struck by lighting. At the end, when Wolffy tells a bedtime story to Paddi, he hallucates Paddi as a hotdog and begins to eat him, at which point it's revealed that he's biting Wolnie's leg while she tries to get him off her with her frying pan, in turn revealing that the whole thing is all just Wolffy's dream.
  • 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.
    • In Flying Island: The Sky Adventure episode 30, Wolffy and General Balloon end up glued to each other, and yet Wolffy tries to have a romantic dinner with Wolnie anyway. The result is that the wolves' kiss gets interrupted when Wolnie realizes she's about to smooch General Wolf instead.
  • Alternative Foreign Theme Song:
    • The Cantonese dub used the Cantonese version of the theme song for the first movie as the theme song for the episodes 101-200 which aired on TVB Jade.
    • The Hindi dub, called 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 Bi: Leo the shark still wants Wolffy even after discovering he was only pretending to be a female shark.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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:
    • In Joys of Seasons episode 9 when Troll Mr. Slowy once pretends to be dying to get back at the goats.
    • Happens again in Joys of Seasons episode 41 when 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.
  • 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!").
  • The Ark: Mr. Slowy builds an ark in Joys of Seasons episode 65 so that he and the goat kids can seek shelter when the Moving Lake causes a flood in Goat Village.
  • 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-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.
  • Artifact of Doom: The pin of misfortune, which screws over everyone that comes in contact with it.
  • Artistic License – Biology: Oddly, whenever the series uses a Bird-Poop Gag, the bird poop has a swirly appearance and is brown like human feces instead of the more biologically accurate white.
  • 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 Joys of Seasons episode 98, Weslie uses Tibbie's handheld mirror to deflect a shot from Wolffy's ice gun. The shot bounces back onto Wolffy himself, freezing him.
    • 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.
  • Attack the Tail: In Joys of Seasons episode 98, Sparky sees Wolffy approaching Tibbie to hurt her and bites the wolf on his tail to divert his attention. Wolffy, unsurprisingly, isn't amused.
  • Audible Gleam: Wolffy's teeth have an audible gleam in the opening of Joys of Seasons.
  • Audience Shift: 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: It's happened to Slowy twice.
    • In episode 10 of Smart Dodging, Slowy eats his candy invention which turns him into a baby for the most of the episode and the goats have to babysit him. Weslie and Slowy get captured by Wolffy and he invents a potion which can turn Slowy back to normal, and Weslie instead uses Slowy's candy to turn Wolffy into a baby and Wilie's "brother", while Slowy clones himself.
    • Again 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": In one episode, Wolffy forces the goats to make a film with him. Spectacularly bad acting is the result.
  • Bag of Holding: In an official comic, Jonie packs some food and medicine for a trip she's taking with Sparky. She somehow manages to fit more stuff into her heart-shaped bag than it should be able to carry.
    Sparky: How did it fit in!?
  • 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.
  • Balloon Belly: Anytime anyone eats too much, their belly becomes inflated.
  • Banana Peel: The first episode of The Athletic Carousel shows that Wolffy has invented robotic banana peels that he intends to use to slip up the goats. He falls victim to one of his own banana peels instead, showing that they electrocute anyone who slips on them.
  • 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.
  • Be the Ball: In Joys of Seasons episode 85, Darker Wolf gets mad at Wolffy for calling him a numbskull, squishes him into a ball shape, and kicks him into the air.
  • Beach Episode: A manhua story has all the goats have fun at the beach.
  • Bears Are Bad News: It's a Running Gag that Wolffy has a tendency to be attacked or otherwise bothered by bears.
  • Bedsheet Ghost: In Joys of Seasons episode 94, Wilie and Wolffy dress in cheap ghost costumes to scare the goats in the woods after they inadvertently interfere with Wilie's bravery test.
  • 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.
  • Better to Die than Be Killed: In Joys of Seasons episode 65, the goats are all about to be eaten by Wolffy and Wolnie on Mr. Slowy's ark. Mr. Slowy decides to jump off the ark and into the water instead to avoid them, and the other goats follow suit thinking it's better to drown themselves than to be consumed. Thankfully, the Moving Lake that caused the flood persuading Slowy to build an ark in the first place goes away before they do drown, and they all turn out fine.
  • 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 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 rice dumpling serving as the prize for winning the race, hoping that the goats will win so that they can pop out of the dumpling when the goats take it home with them.
  • 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 Great War in the Bizarre World episode 9, a bird poops on Wolffy while he's using a slingshot to hurt the goats. It later poops on him again right before the goats leave the cave that Wolffy is near.
    • 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.
  • 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 this way: goats were all good and wolves were all bad until it began to steadily become Morality Kitchen Sink.
  • 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 of Bodies: The Cloud People in Flying Island: The Sky Adventure can come together to form a single being called the Cloud Giant, who helps the goats to reassemble the Sky Crystal near the end of the season.
  • 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!"
  • Bowdlerise:
    • Due to the accident that happened on April 6, 2013, in China where a boy accidentally burnt another two of his friends while trying to imitating a scene from the cartoon itself, starting with Paddi the Amazing Chef, ropes were changed into jelly pudding-shaped rope or laser rope (made by Wolffy), the pot that the wolves used to cook the goats lacks the fire (in the later seasons, the pot never appeared again), Wolffy wears the safety hat when get launched into the sky, and Wolnie's uses of frying pan attack has been reduced (also applies in the last two films). In a few scenes, Don't Try This at Home messages were added, although it was disappeared in the later seasons.
    • Also 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.
    • The official YouTube uploads of episodes 341-380, as well as the Great War in the Bizarre World arc, were edited to make them less violent, including removing violent scenes (including cutting the scenes with Wolnie beats Wolffy with her frying pan repeatedly in episodes) and changing weapons to look less realistic.
      • Notably, in episode 353, the scene where Paddi burns Wolffy's tail outside the Wolf Castle is heavily edited and cut.
    • Also the official YouTube uploads of Joys of Seasons episodes have removed the scenes with Wolnie beats Wolffy with her frying pan repeatly or change knives into vegetable. Obviously a change.
  • 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:
    • In Joys of Seasons episode 84, after Wolnie accidentally gives away the surprise gift Wilie wants to give him, Wolffy says not to worry since "I'm the best actor in this cartoon!" and he should be able to pretend to be surprised easily.
    • In Rescue Across Time episode 41, Wolffy says that he has known Weslie for over 5,000 episodes (though that number is slightly embellished).
  • Bridal Carry: In the first episode of Happy, Happy, Bang! Bang!, Wolffy carries his wife Wolnie in this fashion so they can escape from some lightning bolts that are being sent after them.
  • Brown Note: In one episode, Wolffy invents a conch to lure the goats to sleep.
  • Brutal Honesty: In Joys of Seasons episode 82, the goats set up a surprise trap for Wolffy, and Jonie flat out tells him there's a trap. Paddi teaches her to be less honest about the trap next time, and she does, only to feel guilty about it later - so much so that she goes to apologize to Wolffy and gets captured by him. When Weslie tries to sneak into Wolf Castle to save her, Jonie is asked by Wolffy upon noticing Weslie's presence to tell him truthfully what's going on, and Jonie warns Weslie to run away, leading to Paddi and Tibbie having to bring her out of the castle.
  • 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.
  • Burning Rubber: The end card for Happy Formula episodes features Weslie riding a car and creating a trail of flames behind him.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Cat Smile: Sixie from episode 32 of Flying Island: The Sky Adventure is often shown with this kind of smile.
  • Cats Are Mean: In Against the Dark Force, the goats arrive in the cat-populated Qimao Kingdom and find themselves being turned into aggressive cat-like versions of themselves by the cats, leaving only Paddi and Wolffy to defend themselves.
  • Catapult Nightmare:
    • In Joys of Seasons episode 39, Wolffy and Wolnie wake up screaming after having a nightmare.
    • Happy, Happy, Bang, Bang! episode 30 have Slowy having this reaction after waking up from a nightmare where Willie betray the goats if he let him into the Goat School.
  • Catapult to Glory: In Flying Island: The Sky Adventure episode 13, one of Wolffy's attempts to get back to his family is to shoot himself into the air with a giant catapult. The base of the catapult detaches from the ground and comes flying at him, leaving him right in front of a tree trunk.
  • Catchphrase:
    • Wolffy has several catchphrases. 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 6, a snare catching onto Weslie's leg is how Wolffy captures the goat.
    • 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.

  • Clingy Aquatic Life: In Flying Island: The Sky Adventure episode 33, General Balloon describes the goats as having "fire-like passion".

  • Clip Show: The season Everyday Pleasant Goat is composed entirely of clips from older episodes.
  • Close-Call Haircut: In Mighty Little Defenders episode 42, Weslie faces off against Rolly and Raoul while they're under the effects of a wolf herb. One of those two very nearly hits Weslie with a sword, cutting off a small part of the curl of wool on his forehead.

  • 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.
  • 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:
    • The Little Detective episode 1 features a wall painting of Fun Alliance, another show created by Creative Power Entertaining.

  • 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.
  • 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 Mighty Little Defenders episode 58, Wolfram molds a mud figure into the shape of Wolffy... in the art style of Pleasant Goat Fun Class.
    • The season Dunk for Victories has a few. At the beginning of episode 1, it said that the episode takes place after Against the Dark Force. In episode 7, the newest model golden cake that Slowy uses to lure Paddi into joining his basketball team was made by Aunt Merry from Paddi the Amazing Chef.
  • Cool Old Guy: Old Knife Goat once the flower on his head is removed and Mr. Slowy when he finds out the wolves stopped a letter from his ill old flame from reaching him. Both results in Wolffy getting thrashed, along with his home.
  • 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.
  • Covers Always Lie: 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.
  • Crack in the Sky: The premise of Joys of Seasons episode 34 is that an angry Wolnie sends Wolffy flying into the sky so many times that it creates a crack in the sky that gets bigger and eventually breaks, creating a hole that spills water and sends the goats into action when it threatens to flood the Green Green Grassland.
  • Cranial Eruption: Wolffy sometimes gets a bump on his head when he gets hit there.
  • Crocodile Tears: In Joys of Seasons episode 14, Wilie frees Weslie, Paddi, and Sparky from a cage and goes to bring them back to Tibbie and Jonie when Wolffy, Wilie's father, makes them go play elsewhere. 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.
  • Crying a River: Weslie uses this to his advantage in Great War in the Bizarre World episode 2, where to escape a cauldron that the bee soldiers have trapped the goats in, he notices Tibbie and Paddi crying and has everyone else cry as well, flooding the cauldron to the point that it bursts.
  • 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.
  • Crush Filter: 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 more detailed eyes and a bunch of roses surrounding him, as well as a Bishie Sparkle. Text appears next to the handsome Wilie saying "Angelalily's hallucination" as this happens.
  • Crying Wolf: In episode 7, Mr. Slowy gives the goats whistles and tells them that they may only use them to call for help if Wolffy is nearby. Sparky keeps blowing his whistle, not because Wolffy is attacking him, but just to mess with Weslie and Slowy; when Sparky actually uses the whistle to call for help, Slowy assures Weslie that Sparky is just playing a trick again, and it isn't until later that the other goats notice he's missing and worry about him.
  • Cyber Green: One of the evil aliens in The Intriguing Alien Guests is named Digital Virus, can control electric appliances, and is a bright green color.

  • Denied Food as Punishment: In Flying Island: The Sky Adventure episode 53, Weslie is willing to accept any punishment the Cloud People are about to give him for letting the giant waterspout flood into the transferring hall. Paddi thinks the Cloud People will punish Weslie by refusing him dinner, but Sparky assures Paddi it will be worse than that. Paddi's idea of "worse" is that they will also refuse to give Weslie midnight supper.
    Sparky: Is food all you care about?
  • Depending on the Writer: Before characterization stabilized, how the characters acted depended heavily on various writers.
  • Description Cut: In Mighty Little Defenders episode 20, Weslie and Wolffy find Wilie by himself in the Fantasy Forest, Wilie explains he ended up there when he took the wrong plane to his new school, and Wolffy says that his mother must be worried sick about him. Cut to Wolf Castle, where Wilie's mother Wolnie is watching a cartoon on TV and laughing hysterically at it.
    Wolnie: This is hilarious! What a stupid little dog [referring to the character in the in-universe show]!

  • Determinator:
    • Wolffy has come up with 2,000+ plans to catch the goats. He always fails and ends up on the receiving end of physical pain. He still hasn't given up.
    • In one episode, Paddi went on a trek to deliver snow to a southern village, motivated by the fact that if he doesn't deliver the snow, Little Knife Goat will never be able to see snow. Not knowing this, Mr. Slowy, thinking Paddi would never do such a thing, decides to let Little Knife Goat come to their village instead. The episode ends with Paddi basically calling Mr. Slowy a Jerkass.
  • Didn't Think This Through: In Flying Island: The Sky Adventure episode 32, Sixie asks Wolffy to train him on how to run in a marathon. Wolffy just wants Sixie out of his way, so he asks him to buy a long list of items from a store... but Sixie purchases them online instead of actually going to a store as Wolffy expected. Wolffy then asks Sixie to run over to a faraway car he claims is his, since he apparently lost an item in it. Sixie calls the car driver to bring the car over, at which point Wolffy asks him not to use his phone to complete the tasks.
  • Diegetic Soundtrack Usage: Many characters have been humming or outright singing the theme of the show.
  • Digital Piracy Is Evil: Official pieces of Pleasant Goat merchandise have a holographic security sticker depicting Weslie on it to show they are genuine. The series also has done a few ads that tell viewers to recognize the genuine label hologram placed on the show's official merchandise. Here's the first ad, and its Taiwanese version, in which Wolffy uses his Weslie robot in an attempt to get into the Goat's Village, but fails because the robot doesn't carry the genuine label hologram that the goats have.
  • 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.
  • Distracted by the Sexy: In Great War in the Bizarre World episode 5, the goats have Jolly dress up like a female bee in order to distract the bee guards at the palace and get into the building. The intended reaction is given by the bees... until Jolly turns around, revealing he looks rather ugly as a girl and causing the bees to faint in disgust.
  • Diving Save: In Flying Island: The Sky Adventure episode 28, a balloon person pushes Wilie out of the way of an oncoming vehicle... only to end up caught on the vehicle himself.
  • 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". In the Disney English dub, Sparky changes his name to "Strong Goat".
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: The characters pointing their pinkies at Paddi. He claimed that everyone was "flipping" him off.
  • A Dog Ate My Homework: In Joys of Seasons episode 36, Sparky and Weslie both have their homework stolen by Wolffy, and Paddi, who was too lazy to actually do the work, comes up with the excuse that Wolffy also stole his homework. Mr. Slowy notices they're all using the same excuse and doesn't believe them, 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 of dubs, the other characters are also named after their species, such as Pleasant Goat, Lazy Goat, etc.

  • The Door Slams You:
    • In Flying Island: The Sky Adventure episode 23, the Rainbow Beans keep hitting Wolffy with the door by accident as they are looking for him.
    • In Mighty Little Defenders episode 2, Wolffy is hit by the same door twice - once when Wolnie and General Wolf enter the room, and again a few seconds later when the other wolves enter the room.
  • "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 Irony: In Mighty Little Defenders, the goats get a new dog as a Team Pet. The viewers are aware that the dog is actually the villain Wolffy in disguise, but the goats are not aware of the dog's identity.
  • Dramatic Spotlight: Used frequently for dramatic drama.
  • 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 allows Jonie to punch Wolffy.
  • Dreadful Musician: There are at least a couple of 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: Some episodes may start with Wolffy's dream of finally defeating and eating the goats (or being unable to eat/catch the goats but landing himself in trouble), or with someone else's dream of other things. This happens in a few episodes of season 1, for example, though it's far from the only season that uses the trope.
    • Episode 101 begins with Wolffy chasing Paddi with a knife, and when he catches Paddi and is about to cut him, Paddi punches Wolffy's eye. In the real world, he's about to punch Mr. Slowy's eye; this causes him to get reprimanded and results in him being forced to stand in the hallway outside the classroom as a punishment.
    • 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.

    • Happy, Happy, Bang, Bang! episode 33 begins with Wolffy having a dream where he and Wolnie finally eat the goats, only for the little gray goat they're about to eat being revealed to be Wilie.
    • The Athletic Carousel episode 18 begins with the weirdest dream Paddi ever had.
    • Adventures in the Sea episode 56 starts with Wolnie seeing her beautiful self in a mirror before fading into the same but with added pores on her face. She is shocked after seeing this, and the mirrors grew a face and started laughing at her; as she is about to throw the mirror and throw it, it's shown that she's about to throw Wolffy out of bed in reality.
    • 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.
  • Dressing as the Enemy:
    • Weslie and Sparky disguised themselves as wolf cubs once, with the former having impersonated both Wolffy and Wolnie at different points.
    • Wolffy and Wolnie disguise themselves as goats frequently as part of their schemes.
  • Drool Deluge:
    • In Joys of Seasons episode 59, Wolffy produces a waterfall of drool from his mouth when Darker describes the goat meat rice balls that they cook where he comes from.
    • Wolffy drools like this again in Joys of Seasons episode 65, where he has a dream that the goats let him eat whichever one he wants after he wins a game of water volleyball against them.
  • Drugs Are Bad: In Happy, Happy, Bang, Bang! episode 50, Wilie almost drinks glue after doing homework, but Wolffy stops him from doing so. And yes, drinking or sniffing glue is on the same level of bad as doing drugs. Even the Chinese text on the glue label is very obvious.
  • Drunk on Milk: Wolffy and his uncle got drunk on "fruit juice" once. Strangely enough, since everyone usually gets drunk on actual liquor.
  • Dub Name Change: Most of the English-dubbed episodes change the names of the characters. For example, the names Pleasant Goat, Beauty Goat, and Big Big Wolf are changed to Weslie, Tibbie, and Wolffy respectively.
  • 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; 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.
  • Dying Declaration of Hate: In Joys of Seasons episode 4, as the time bomb stuck on him is about to explode, Master Pao Pao tells his wife he loves her, tells his son the same thing... and then has no problem telling Mr. Slowy he hates him.
  • 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.
  • Edible Ammunition:
    • Flying Island: The Sky Adventure episode 5 is about weather fruits that can be shot out of a cannon to release weather patterns in the sky.
    • Episode 5 of Paddi the Amazing Chef has the goats shoot fruit out of guns when they think Wolffy is nearby.
  • Egg Folk:
    • White Handsomey and his brother Dark Handsomey, both introduced in the first season's Great War in the Bizarre World Story Arc, are anthropomorphic eggs with arms and legs.
    • A few seasons feature a race of limbless blue egg aliens that visit Earth several times. Differently-colored versions of these aliens appear earlier in the show, in Season 1.
  • Egg MacGuffin: In Great War in the Bizarre World, the bees in the Bizarre World guard a giant egg that they believe to be sacred since it is being used to keep the evil Dark Handsomey imprisoned; the bees go as far as to punish the goats by boiling them when Paddi touches it, not knowing its importance. Wolffy accidentally removes the seal on the egg, causing it to release Dark Handsomey.
  • Elemental Weapon: Tibbie's bow and arrow in Mighty Little Defenders has Green Thumb capabilities, namely the ability to create big vines and beanstalks wherever it shoots.
  • Embarrassing Slide: In the first episode, Mr. Slowy tells the goats to avoid wolves and shows them a picture to illustrate what the animal looks like. It turns out to be a picture of Slowy as a baby instead, and Weslie points out how it doesn't look particularly dangerous while most of the other goats laugh once they realize who it is.
  • Emoticon: The manhua sometimes puts emoticons in dialogue bubbles to show how characters feel.
  • The End: Episodes usually end by showing the character "完", meaning "finished".
  • 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 (Hao Hao the dolphin, from Rescue Across Time) 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 yet, and even extends to the seasons Against the Dark Force and Dunk for Victories, though at least said to a few wolves.
  • 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.
  • Enemy Civil War: In Mighty Little Defenders, such a conflict forms within the wolves when the leader General Wolf deems several other wolves to be traitors and asks for their capture. The wolves who he has deemed traitors try to go to the goats for help.
  • Enemy Rising Behind: In Mighty Little Defenders episode 43, Sparky assures Paddi they and the other goats will be fine as Paddi gets scared in a storage room they've entered. Cue the shadow of someone appearing behind them, catching them off guard; the episode ends there, and the cliffhanger is resolved in the next episode where the shadowed figure is revealed to be General Wolf's quartet of alpha troops.
  • Enter Eponymous: The official English title for Joys of Seasons episode 16 is "Enter the Little Inventor". The "little inventor" in question is Weslie, who has to build an invention for his schoolwork in that episode.
  • Episode Title Card: Every episode has some kind of title card. Earlier seasons have the characters doing various things in the title cards, while later seasons have other kinds of title cards (like the Mighty Little Defenders title card which is just Wolffy pulling out a paper and marking on it).
  • Establishing Character Moment: In the first episode, Weslie has to drag Paddi to school because he's still sleeping, establishing Paddi as a lazy character.
  • Establishing Shot: Quite a few episodes begin with either a shot of the castle or of Goat Village, showing where the episode will take place.
  • Every Scar Has a Story: In episode 499, which involves Time Travel, Martial Wolf pulls out a sword and knifes Wolffy in the face, resulting in the latter's defining scar.

  • 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. Worly is quick to tell Weslie he missed, but Weslie clarifies he wasn't aiming at him - he aimed at the ground below him so that the ice could make him slip.
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin: There's the title, everything is spelled out there: Pleasant Goat and Big Bad Wolf.
  • Excited Show Title!: The seasons Happy, Happy, Bang! Bang! and Mr.Wolffy, Mr.Right! both have exclamation marks in their titles.

  • Explain, Explain... Oh, Crap!: In episode 3 of Great War in the Bizarre World, when the Queen explains that Darton leaves a mark on all who are under his control, she caps it off saying it's hard to explain. Then an X-circle mark appears on her belly, and Slowy asks if that's the mark he leaves. The Queen says yes, and it takes a Double Take for her to realize what just happened; she's corrupted shortly afterwards.
  • Exploding Closet: In Joys of Seasons episode 38, Paddi eats everything in a bunch of cans of food so that he can give them to Wolffy, who is pretending to be a Mexican merchant who wants cans (he's looking for the lucky doll's red can so that he can harness its lucky power). 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.
  • Expository Theme Tune: The original theme song "Don't Think I'm Just a Little Goat" downplays this, as it explains that the singer is a goat who will make it into a game whenever the wolf tries to catch them, but otherwise doesn't sum up the series premise directly.
  • Extreme Omni-Goat: Subverted. In Joys of Seasons episode 7, Paddi tries to eat a tennis ball but doesn't like the taste of it.
  • Extremely Short Intro Sequence: The Everyday Pleasant Goat opening lasts around 12 seconds.
  • Eye-Obscuring Hat: Several of the wolf soldiers in Mighty Little Defenders wear helmets that cover their eyes.
  • Eye Pop: Characters' eyes might pop when they are surprised or scared.
  • Eyelid Pull Taunt: In Mighty Little Defenders episode 4, as Wolffy is writing a letter to his son Wilie, he is stung by a mosquito who then taunts him by pulling his eyelid and sticking his tongue out at him.

Unfortunately, Wolffy wakes up before Weslie can leave the castle and promptly uses him as a trap to catch the other goats.
  • Face–Heel Turn: In Mighty Little Defenders, General Wolf/Chapper used to be a friendly wolf who supported peace between goats and wolves with the help of his goat friend Gogoa. After he got shot with a laser gun, he thought Gogoa was the one who shot him (Gogoa was actually framed for it). 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.
  • Faceless Masses: Almost every non-protagonist goat looks the same. In the second movie, they're clearly copies of each other filling up the background. It's even worse for the nameless wolves; they're a mass of identical clones!
  • 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.
  • The Face of the Sun: Sometimes, the sun has a face, glasses, and hair. Earlier on it just has a face.
  • Failure Is the Only Option: Wolffy, and how! Every single plan he has thought up to catch the goats has failed, and he doesn't seem to get the memo that he'll never succeed and is dead set on keeping it up until he does.
  • Fake Static: In Mighty Little Defenders episode 37, Rolly and Raoul receive a call from General Wolf through their earpiece about if they've caught Wolffy yet. Worried that the general will get mad at them if they answer "no", the wolf duo pretends the reception on their earpiece is starting to get fuzzy, complete with one of them making fake static sounds.
  • Faking the Dead: Wolffy once fakes being dead to lure the goats into a false sense of security.

  • False Camera Effects: There are scan lines at the beginning of the intro of The Little Detective.
  • Family-Friendly Firearms: Averted. In some episodes, the characters use firearms that look and sound like real firearms. No one gets significantly hurt, though.
    • Guns were replaced with friendly ones in the official YouTube version of episodes 341-380. But in episode 342, Weslie and others, dressed as robbers, are holding toy guns and point at Wolffy, and he said that they just want to use toy guns (actual guns in the original version) to scare him, and then they shoot no bullets but the gun sound is still heard...
  • Fantastic Fireworks: In the last episode of Mighty Little Defenders, the goats and wolves shoot fireworks shaped like themselves.

  • 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.
  • Filling the Silence: Silence is replaced with constant grunting, giggling, etc.
  • 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 breathe a big flame out of the window of the spider's house.
  • 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.
  • Flaming Meteor: At the end of Joys of Seasons episode 86, as a side-effect of Wolffy's unlucky potion, Wolf Castle starts to burn. Then a meteor covered in flames swoops right through the castle, hits Wolffy, and goes back up into the air with him.
  • Flashback: Common. For example, in episode 173, Wolffy has a flashback to when he ate the disgusting cookies earlier.
  • Floating Limbs:
    • The sun is sometimes depicted with hands that are not connected to it in any way.
    • The egg aliens 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 Saucer: In episode 234, Wolffy uses a circular ship shaped like a flying saucer to fly to the desert.
  • Forced Transformation: 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Frying Pan of Doom: Wolnie's preferred method for punishing Wolffy is to hit him with a frying pan.
  • Fusion Dance: In Joys of Seasons episode 40, the lucky and unlucky doll pass their expiration date and the dolls merge, 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.
  • Genre Shift: While the comedy element remains consistent, the series gradually becomes more centered on sci-fi and fantasy action plots compared to the earlier, much simpler slapstick seasons. Besides that, the series also shifts to a sports story twice, once in the second season Pleasant Goat Sports Game and again in the later basketball-based season Dunk for Victories (and by extension, its accompanying movie Dunk for Future).
  • Giant Enemy Crab: A large red crab appears in Great War in the Bizarre World episode 12, waking up and chasing after the goats and Jolly after he's implied to be a large red rock. In the following episode, the goats are convinced that the crab is under Darton's power, and Jolly attempts to use the Luminous Ray to uncorrupt him. It doesn't work because the crab isn't corrupted, leaving him furious that they would bully him and causing him and an army of crabs to go after the goats.
  • Giant Robot Hands Save Lives: In Flying Island: The Sky Adventure episode 29, Wolnie falls off the edge of the floating Balloon City and is rescued by Wolffy, who uses his train, Sirius, to extend a giant metallic hand out to catch her.
  • 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.
  • Gigantic Moon: In Joys of Seasons episode 72, there are a couple of shots of Goat Village at night where the moon looks absolutely massive in the sky compared to real life.
  • 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 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 at 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.
  • Go Out with a Smile: In Rescue Across Time episode 41, one of the characters clearly has a smile on their face as they slowly die.
  • God Guise: In Joys of Seasons episode 53, Wolffy disguises himself as the kitchen god whose offerings Paddi ate. Paddi, who is 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.
  • Gone Swimming, Clothes Stolen: In Joys of Seasons episode 58, Brother Tai doesn't go swimming but rather bathes in a hot spring. His suit of fur is still stolen by Wolffy when he's not paying attention so that Wolffy and Wolnie can use it for their Chinese New Year's lion.
  • 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 Is a Harsh Mistress: In Pleasant Goat Sports Game episode 4, Dark Handsomey and White Handsomey fall for a trick from Wolffy and Wolnie that involves them being sent through a fake stadium that's actually a cardboard cutout, leaving them walking over the edge of a cliff. It takes them a few seconds to notice they're standing in midair, at which point they actually fall to the ground.
  • 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 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.
  • Growling Gut: In episode 22, the goats are hiding underground as the wolves search for them. Paddi's growling stomach is what alerts Wolffy to their presence.
  • 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.
  • Halfway Plot Switch: Joys of Seasons episode 99 starts out being focused on Wolffy Playing Sick to avoid her wife's wrath after his attempt to catch a goat falls flat. Once Wolnie discovers Wolffy is faking his ailment and leaves with Wilie, the plot switches to being about Wolffy having to hide Pink Fox from Wolnie when she pays a visit to Wolf Castle.
  • 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.
  • Heli-Critter: A variant occurs in the first episode of Ultimate Battle: The Next Generation, in that Wolffy spins his tail to propel himself across a void that he and Weslie are brought to and float in.
  • 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 Sacrifice:
    • 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.
  • Hit Flash: Hit flashes often appear when Wolnie hits Wolffy with a frying pan.
  • Holiday Episode:
    • There is an episode where the characters celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival.
    • Joys of Seasons episode 84 takes place on Father's Day, with Wilie making his dad Wolffy a hat for a present to celebrate.
  • Hologram: Weslie's parents communicate with him through a hologram.
  • 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.
  • Hurl It into the Sun: At the end of Joys of Seasons episode 73, the goats decide to take care of Wolffy this way, in a weird way - they use the magnets he tried to use to capture them and set them up so he gets sent flying into the sun.
    The sun: Let's be honest now, guys, am I really that bad?
  • 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.
  • Implausible Deniability: In Flying Island: The Sky Adventure episode 11, Wolffy has Weslie and Paddi captured. Paddi pretends to sleep so that he doesn't catch Wolffy's attention and tries to wake up Weslie, who is legitimately sleeping. Wolffy catches Paddi awake, and the goat tries to convince him he's still asleep. Not that it does much to divert Wolffy's attention from him.
  • 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.
    • 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.
  • Insect Queen: A literal queen bee with a throne and royal clothing appears in Great War in the Bizarre World, where she rules over the bees in the Bizarre World and sentences the goats to punishment after Paddi touches their sacred egg by accident.
  • 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.
  • Involuntary Dance: Tibbie's Magic Train in Flying Island: The Sky Adventure can play music to make people dance against their will. In that season's 19th episode, she stops Wolffy with this ability when he infiltrates the room used for producing rainbows.
  • 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.
  • Just Eat Gilligan: The wolves could save a lot of time and effort if they were to simply eat the goats raw. With that said, there is at least one instance where they actually do try to eat Paddi raw, in episode 90 of Joys of Seasons; the only thing that stops them is their teeth breaking due to them having eaten all of Paddi's candy house a minute or so earlier.
  • Karmic Butt-Monkey: Wolffy's the main antagonist of the series who is always trying to catch and eat the goats, but his plans to catch them always result in some kind of slapstick for him.
  • 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.
  • 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.
    • The later seasons' plots tend to get so complex that they have to continue them across multiple seasons, a trend that started with Marching to the New Wonderland's sequel Adventures in the Sea.
  • 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.
  • Letter Motif: The goats' Chinese names are all tied together with the Chinese character 羊 (yang), which means "sheep" or "goat".
  • Licensed Game:
    • Quite a few games were released on Android. One particular game was released worldwide: Where's My Water? Featuring XYY.
    • A separate console game, titled 喜羊羊与灰太狼-羊咩英雄传 (Pleasant Goat and Big Big Wolf - Comet Battle) in Chinese, was released for M&D's Monon Color (梦龙彩色掌机) handheld system.
  • Lies to Children: In Joys of Seasons episode 85, Wilie wants to know where he came from. Wolffy, instead of giving him a straighter answer for his question, tells him he used to be a tadpole. Wilie tells the goats, who say that's not true, but Wilie doesn't think his father would ever lie to him and disagrees with the goats. Once Wilie does find out the truth about tadpoles, though, he's absolutely devastated and Wolffy goes as far as to get the goats' help to convince Wilie otherwise.
  • Limited Animation: In the earliest episodes, the animation is very simplistic and the actual movement tends to be limited, particularly where the characters' mouths are concerned. Later episodes greatly increase the fluidity and general quality of the animation by a lot.
  • Lions and Tigers and Humans... Oh, My!: There are a few videos (mainly music videos) that show humans interacting with the Funny Animal goats in Goat Village.
  • Little Green Men: The aliens in episode 47 are little green humanoids who own a Flying Saucer.
  • Loading Screen: Some transitions are loading screens with the charaters' faces.
  • Look Behind You:
    • In Joys of Seasons episode 22, Banana Wolf tries to distract Wolnie by yelling that there's a goat nearby so that he can escape from Wolf Castle. It doesn't work.
    • In Joys of Seasons episode 25, Weslie distracts Wolffy by telling him "Look at all those flying disks there!" so that he and the other goats can run off and hide from him.
    • In Joys of Seasons episode 51, Weslie distracts Wolnie by shouting there's a shooting star in the sky. Wolnie and Mr. Slowy fall for the trick, leading to the latter being grabbed by Wolffy.
      Weslie: [to Mr. Slowy] You weren't supposed to fall for that trick, too.
  • Long List: In Flying Island: The Sky Adventure episode 32, Wolffy "trains" Sixie for a marathon by giving him a list of things to buy, written on a long piece of paper that opens up and rolls onto the floor. Sixie finishes this step easily by simply ordering all the stuff online.
  • Long-Runner Tech Marches On: The characters don't have phones in the early 2000's seasons, but they begin using phones in later seasons from The New '10s. There's no In-Universe explanation for them suddenly getting phones.
  • Love at First Sight: Wolffy immediately fell in love with Wolnie upon first seeing her. Wolnie on the other hand...
  • Loves My Alter Ego: One of the unnamed goats falls for Sparky in his super costume which was designed for Tibbie so it ends up adding curves to him and changing his voice. The goat thought he was female.
  • Lower-Deck Episode: Airplane, the goat with the propeller hat who appears in the background a lot, gets a major role in Joys of Seasons episode 78, where he finds Mr. Slowy's special paints that bring to life paintings made with them.
  • MacGuffin: The Luminous Ray in Great War in the Bizarre World, which is needed by the goats to lift the mind-control placed on the bees but is also being sought after by the wolves.
  • Made of Explodium: In Happy, Happy, Bang! Bang! episode 82, Wolffy spins a slot machine. The slot machine stops at a row of 3 bombs, causing it to immediately blow up in Wolffy's face.

  • Magical Flutist: In episode 10, Wolffy learns of a magic flute that is said to have been used to drive a rat infestation out of a wolf village a long time ago. Playing the flute causes all within hearing range to blindly follow whoever is playing the instrument, so Wolffy tries to use it to lure the goats to his place. As he learns near the end of the episode, however, the flute only mind-controls rats, not goats.
  • Magnificent Moustaches of Mexico: In Joys of Seasons episode 38, Wolffy's Mexican merchant costume consists of nothing but a sombrero and a mustache.
  • The Man in the Moon: The moon, like the sun, is often depicted with a face.

  • Map All Along: Jolly's picture of a screwdriver, a nut, and a screw in Great War in the Bizarre World. It's passed off by him as a map, and it's implied that Jolly just handed the goats and wolves a photo and is claiming that it's a map thanks to his non-existent knowledge, with the wolves rightfully questioning his logic when they use it, but it later turns out to be a really good approximation of where everything is in the Bizarre World - the river is shaped like a screwdriver, a nut-shaped castle wall is located close to it on the right, and a mushroom-like growth with a screw shape is to the left.

Those taking the challenge are supposed to find the exit to the maze while making sure the balloons on their head (carried over from the camp's previous challenge) aren't popped.
  • Meadow Run: Spoofed in Happy, Happy, Bang!

  • "Mission: Impossible" Cable Drop: In Flying Island: The Sky Adventure episode 38, Wolffy attempts to break into the Elder Stars' house to kidnap baby Slowy by sawing the building's roof off and lowering himself to Slowy's crib with a rope. Unfortunately for Wolffy, the rope's too short for him to actually reach his target.
  • Mistaken for an Imposter: In episode 439, Weslie disguises himself as Wolnie. Wolffy eventually figures out the trick and chases Weslie, but hits the real Wolnie thinking it's the imposter. Wolnie is not pleased in the slightest, as you could imagine, and makes for her frying pan.
  • Mistaken for Thief: In Flying Island: The Sky Adventure episode 20, the green pencil used by the Rainbow Beans to produce rainbows goes missing, and the goats remember Wolffy had tried to infiltrate the rainbow production room earlier.

  • Musical Nod: In the first episode of Ultimate Battle: The Next Generation, one of the simplistic synth tracks that often played in the show's earlier seasons can be heard as the goats dig up their box of memories. It's very rare to hear the show's classic background music tracks in the later seasons, so this was probably a deliberate choice to help hearken back to the goats' previous adventures.
  • My Species Doth Protest Too Much: In Mighty Little Defenders, some goats and wolves are both against the extremely long fighting between their two tribes and wish to gain peace.

    N-Z 
  • Nails on a Blackboard: In Joys of Seasons episode 36, Mr. Slowy gets angry about Weslie, Paddi, and Sparky seemingly skipping school on top of not sending in their homework (they were actually captured by Wolffy while trying to retrieve their homework from him).

  • 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. It makes sense, though; Wolffy does always say he'll be back.
    • In The Athletic Carousel episode 56, Wilie eats the Small Pill that Paddi forgets about while being captured by Wolffy and Wolnie, and he turns small, allowing him to help the goats to escape with big Paddi. Wilie returns to his normal size after this episode somehow.

  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: In episode 1 of Marching to the New Wonderland, the goats use their new trains to fight Wolffy in his Celestial Wolf train. Tibbie manages to break the gun on the Celestial Wolf, keeping Wolffy from shooting at them and giving the goats the perfect chance to attack... and then Sparky repairs that gun, not realizing that his train is the repair train. Cue Wolffy quickly using the opportunity to attack the goats with his shrinking powder.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain: In Great War in the Bizarre World episode 3, Wolffy summons the bees to test the command that Darton had just explained to them, calling them to appear where he is.

  • 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.
  • No Focus on Humans: There actually are humans in the series, but their appearances are very, very, very rare and they usually aren't major characters in an episode (one exception is Santa Claus, who lets the goats ride his sleigh in Pleasant Goat Fun Class: Travel Around the World episode 1). Other than these, all the focus is on the animals.

  • Nobody Here but Us Statues: In episode 5, Wolffy pretends to be one of the wax statues of the village chiefs to disguise himself. It works; he's able to capture a goat (actually one of the real wax statues), and the others don't notice until after the fact.
  • 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.
  • Not a Mask: In episode 439, Weslie disguises himself as Wolnie, and Wolffy spends the episode chasing him down. Eventually, he comes across the actual Wolnie and, assuming she's Weslie, pulls on her face to remove what he thinks is Weslie's mask. it isn't, and Wolnie hits Wolffy with her frying pan.
  • Not Allowed to Grow Up: After over a decade of adventures, the goats are still school-aged.
  • Not-So-Innocent Whistle: In Joys of Seasons episode 41, Weslie, who is captured along with the other goats, notices and grabs Wolffy's prank spray. When Wolffy looks to see what Weslie is up to, he and Sparky whistle as if nothing just happened.

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.

Sometimes they will slightly change the title by using a different word with the same meaning. For example, in episode 122 and Happy, Happy, Bang! Bang!'s 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 episode 21, Sparky's eyes turn red and stay that color while he's under the effects of the crazy sheep shroom.
  • 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. In Joys of Seasons episode 34, the sky turns purple when the crack it forms from Wolffy being hurled into the sky one too many times finally breaks, creating a big hole that pours out rain and threatens to flood the Green Green Grassland.
  • Reflective Eyes: In Flying Island: The Sky Adventure episode 4, as he is watching footage of Weslie's Xiha train, Wolffy's eyes reflect the little symbol associated with the vehicle, and he realizes it's the same emblem on the gem he had given Wolnie earlier and suggests he and Wolnie get the gem back.

  • Right Behind Me: In Flying Island: The Sky Adventure episode 33, Weslie discusses breaking out of the storm enveloping Balloon City with the other goats, even though General Balloon is against that idea since he thinks it's too dangerous. General Balloon appears right behind Weslie while he talks about his scheme; it takes Tibbie saying the trope name word-for-word for him to notice.
  • Road Runner vs. Coyote: Wolffy tries to capture and consume the goats, but inevitably fails every single time, much to the disappointment of his wife Wolnie.
  • Robot Me: An ad made to bring awareness to Pleasant Goat merchandise's anti-piracy holographic sticker features Wolffy operating a robotic version of Weslie to invade Goat Village. The goats see through the trick because the robot doesn't have the sticker on its bottom.
  • Rock–Paper–Scissors: At the beginning of episode 60, Weslie and Wolffy play a few rounds of this game and have fun.
  • Roll Out the Red Carpet: At the beginning of episode 495, Wolffy arrives at a show well-dressed. He begins walking down a red carpet and waving at everyone, only for him to fall over on a watermelon.
  • Rope Bridge: In Mighty Little Defenders episode 11, the goats chase after the wolves, who are running away with Mr. Slowy and Grany Dao Yang. The goats come across a rope bridge, which is cut by the wolves who have already made it to the other side. Thankfully, Tibbie uses her bow and arrow to create a big vine to catch everyone before they fall too far down the cliff below.
  • Rouge Angles of Satin: In certain seasons, the Chinese subtitles mix up/confuse Chinese characters that look or sound similar. Example: Wolffy's name is really supposed to be "灰太狼", but one time the subtitles accidentally spell it as "灰天狼".
  • Running Gag: In episode 181, Banana Wolf's banana keeps getting accidentally sliced with a sword, and Banana Wolf always gets a new banana only for the same thing to happen again.
  • Running on All Fours: Wolffy has been seen running on all fours a few times. For example, in the second movie, Wolffy runs on all fours to escape from some spotlights at Lord Japper's amusement park.
  • Safety Worst: In Flying Island: The Sky Adventure episode 31, General Balloon becomes bothersome to Wolffy when he tries to enforce his safety standards on his train house. Besides these standards only being practical for balloons since they pop easily, Wolffy is afraid Wolnie will get mad at him for General Balloon removing the metal accessories from her Limited Wardrobe. The general also frowns on his balloon students playing soccer for this reason until a soccer ball helps him stop a train from Wolffy from damaging Balloon City.
  • Santa Claus: In one episode of the show, the characters celebrate Christmas and dress up as Santa Claus.
  • Sapient Eat Sapient: The sapient wolves attempt to eat the sapient goats.
  • Save the Villain: The goats save the wolves every so often, usually resulting in the latter trying to capture them anyway or because they're not particularly "soft-handed" in their defenses.
  • Scary Flashlight Face: In the title card of Joys of Seasons episode 94, Weslie scares Wolffy by shining a flashlight on himself as he makes a creepy face.
  • Scary Stinging Swarm: 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.
  • Scenery Censor: In Joys of Seasons episode 58, Brother Tai's fur "clothes" are stolen by Wolffy to use for his and Wolnie's Chinese New Year's lion. When Brother Tai finally catches up with Wolffy to take his clothes back, his... uh, you know... is conveniently blocked from view by Wolffy himself.
  • Science Hero: Mr. Slowy is a scientist whose inventions often come in handy when the goats fight the wolves.
  • 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 Wolnie declares she wants Wolffy to go get her the moon, the moon freaks out and dons a hat and suitcase, setting up a decoy pancake moon in its place before it runs away.
  • Second Person Attack: There are quite a few cases where either Wolnie or the goats hit Wolffy and the screen shows the attack from Wolffy's point of view.
  • Secret Snack Stash:
    • Joys of Seasons episode 8 shows that Mr. Slowy has a secret snack stash. The other goats find it and decide to take some food from it since what Mr. Slowy has been making for dinner lately hasn't been very delicious.
    • Episode 43 of the same season shows that Paddi, being a Big Eater and all, keeps a huge secret supply of snacks in a cave. 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. Paddi and Sparky sneak into Weslie's house at night to find the soda can and straw they think are Weslie's secret weapons, only for them to fail to work when Wolffy appears the next day and captures them both.
  • Seesaw Catapult: In Joys of Seasons episode 75, Wolnie finds herself on a seesaw after being chased around by the other goats, who are all pretending to be Tibbie to distract her from the real Tibbie, who wanted to sacrifice herself to save a bunch of Tibbie impersonators. Jonie charges at Wolnie and jumps onto the other side of the seesaw, sending her flying into the air.
  • Self-Duplication: In Flying Island: The Sky Adventure, Paddi's Magic Train can duplicate into a bunch of much smaller versions of itself.
  • Sentient Stars: Dear Little Wish features anthropomorphic stars as characters, among them the elderly Grandpa Meteor whom the goats help to write down everyone's wishes.
  • Sentient Vehicle: In Happy Formula, the characters drive their own cars. The cars are at least a little sentient since they know what's going on around them and they often look ahead or look at who's driving them.
  • 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 more stories can 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.
    • Weslie's mother had a cameo in the second movie. She looks noticeably different in the third one and in all the seasons and movies that follow it (in the second movie, she wears little blue ribbons around her horns and blue wristbands; in the third movie she lacks both and wears a fancy dress).
  • Series Goal: Throughout the entire show, the main goal is for Wolffy (who sometimes borders on being a Villain Protagonist) to catch and eat the goats, no matter what it takes. Failure Is the Only Option for him.
  • 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...
  • Shy Finger-Twiddling: Paddi often puts his index fingers together when he's nervous.
  • Sibling Team: Rolly and Raoul are two brothers who dream of being musicians together. They always work together to achieve goals.
  • Sick Episode: In Flying Island: The Sky Adventure episode 12, Paddi gets sick while he has a weather fruit plant sprouting out of his head, leading to his sneezing creating wind fruits that scare everyone with little twisters if they hit the ground and break open. Paddi refuses to eat his medicine, and all this creates a problem for the weather factory since the Weather Tree has stopped growing, meaning Paddi's their only source of weather fruit.
  • Similar to the Show: There's a commerical for tissues and towels that looks just like the normal show.
  • Single-Task Robot:
    • In Joys of Seasons episode 16, the first thing that Wolffy ever invented is shown to be a robot that comforts any nearby people when they are sad.
    • In Joys of Seasons episode 49, Wolffy invents a sewing robot to fix one of Wolnie's outfits after he accidentally rips it. He then decides to weaponize the robot by having it help him catch the goats.
  • Skyward Scream: In Joys of Seasons episode 16, Wolffy does a skyward scream of "OH, MY DEAR COMFORT ROBOT!!!" after he tries and fails to find his comfort robot.
  • 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. The dummy repeatedly plays a recording of Slowy saying "Come back later, I'm asleep" in a sleepy voice.
    • In Flying Island: The Sky Adventure episode 22, the Rainbow Beans, who should be taking a nap, set up dummies to take their place when they decide to go outside and play.
  • Sleeps with Both Eyes Open: In Happy Formula episode 3, Sparky's fire truck looks like it might be awake when Wolffy steps on its hose on the way to Slowy's lab... but then we see Catching Some Z's and Wolffy is relieved to know it's just sleeping with its eyes open.
  • Sleepwalking: Joys of Seasons episode 12 is about the goats trying to cure Tibbie of the effects of some sleepwalking grass that she ate, which causes her to sleepwalk and hurt the others.
  • Slice of Life: 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.
  • Slippery Skid: At the beginning of episode 495, Wolffy walks down a red carpet to head to a show. Another character drops their watermelon on the carpet and Wolffy trips on it and falls.
  • Slower Than a Snail: Village chief Mr. Slowy is characterized right from the first episode as being slower than a snail when walking. In that episode, a snail child and its mother pass by Mr. Slowy as he's walking, and the snail child asks his mother if she deceived him since he was told snails are the slowest animals in the world.
  • Sneeze of Doom:
    • In Joys of Seasons episode 25, the goats are in the grass hiding from Wolffy, who is flying around in his bee costume to look for them. Paddi realizes there's a flower right in front of him and sneezes, which causes Wolffy to notice where the goats are.
    • Subverted in Mighty Little Defenders episode 55, where Weslie is forced to hide when General Wolf comes to talk to Gogoa. An insect lands on Weslie's nose and it makes him want to sneeze, but Gogoa can distract General Wolf from it by pretending to sneeze himself.
  • Snot Bubble: It's not uncommon for characters (particularly Paddi) to have snot bubbles when they're asleep.
  • 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.
  • The Song Remains the Same: Some of the English dubs leave the theme songs in Chinese.
  • Soup Is Medicine: In Flying Island: The Sky Adventure episode 9, a flashback has Hope, the director of the weather factory, offering a bowl of soup to a factory worker who has come down with a cold.
  • Speak of the Devil: One of Jonie's characteristics is that whenever she mentions some kind of mishap happening, it usually happens right after she mentions it. In a few cases, this mishap has been Wolffy appearing after she mentions him.
  • 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.
  • Spit Take: In Flying Island: The Sky Adventure episode 19, Paddi sees a rainbow acting weird and spits his drink all over Weslie's head. Then Weslie sees what's happening and does the same thing, making Paddi's head all wet.
  • Split-Screen Phone Call:
    • Since Darton has Wolffy as his assistant in Great War in the Bizarre World, we see him calling Wolffy on a phone several times to check on him and give him directions, accompanied by a split screen with Darton on the left and Wolffy on the right.
    • In Flying Island: The Sky Adventure episode 8, Wolffy gets a call from Wolnie and explains to her how he plans to go about capturing the goats. The wolves can make physical contact with each other through the resulting split-screen, with Wolffy also throwing cucumber slices right onto Wolnie and moving the split screen's border around a bit.
  • 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.
  • Standalone Episode: A lot of earlier episodes have plots that stand on their own, with no earlier plot points being required to understand them. Later seasons avert this much more often with episodes that form a season-wide connected narrative.
  • Stern Teacher: Slowy's serum in episode 2 is meant to give any object it touches the personality of a strict teacher. Unfortunately, it turns the objects it touches outright violent towards the goats instead.
  • Stewed Alive: Wolffy often tries to eat the goats by tying them up and putting them in a boiling pot.
  • The Stinger: In the final episode of Mighty Little Defenders, after the end of the episode, there's a scene where one of the wolves is upset about the friendship between the goats and the wolves.
  • Stock Animal Diet: It has an anthropomorphic wolf and his wife who try to hunt the (equally anthropomorphic) neighboring goats.
  • Stock Femur Bone: In Mighty Little Defenders episode 6, the house of the dog tribe's leader has a big wooden bone of this kind on top of it.
  • Stock Footage:
    • The same clip of Paddi kissing Sparky plays twice in episode 496.
    • Mighty Little Defenders episode 24 has a scene where Wolffy as a dog is chasing after Wilie. The scene reuses the same clip of Wolffy running after Wilie and sprinting ahead of him four times without any changes to the footage.
  • Stock Subtitle: The latter half of the season name Ultimate Battle: The Next Generation.
  • Story Arc: Usually episodes are self-contained, but sometimes they'll throw in a story arc that lasts several episodes and tells a deeper story. Some examples would be the Great War in the Bizarre World arc which takes up quite a bit of season 1 and the arc in Smart Dodging.
  • Strictly Formula: Often falls into this. Wolffy tries to find a way to capture the goats, he gets really close to winning, and then the goats escape at the last minute. Though later seasons don't follow the formula as much.
  • Stuck in the Doorway:
    • In Great War in the Bizarre World episode 15, Weslie creates an opening to a cave to get everyone to safety after they fall into the water. Jolly ends up briefly stuck in the passageway, leading to Weslie pushing him into the cave by using kelp to tickle his feet.
    • In Flying Island: The Sky Adventure episode 31, Balloon City goes into a state of emergency and the citizens are asked to leave for their homes. One of the balloon students is too big to fit through the school doorway easily, so the goats spend a good minute or so trying to get him unstuck.
  • Summon a Ride: In the Marching to the New Wonderland series, Weslie can ring his bell to summon the Xiha trains.
  • Surprise Party: In Flying Island: The Sky Adventure episode 8, it's Hope's birthday but the factory crew is paying no attention to her and the goats' offers to help them. It later turns out to be because they wanted to keep Hope's party a surprise.

  • Super Strength: Sparky's Magic Train in Flying Island: The Sky Adventure can shoot a ray that temporarily amplifies the strength of whoever is hit by it several times, and also makes them larger in the process.
  • Sweat Drop: As with other shows by Creative Power Entertaining, Pleasant Goat characters often have sweat drops when they are surprised. The sweat drops are also accompanied by sound effects.
  • Sweet Tooth: Paddi is known to eat a lot of 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".
  • Swiss Army Tears: In Flying Island: The Sky Adventure episode 42, Wolffy tells Wilie a bedtime story where a princess's tears magically wake up a sleeping prince. Wolffy tells Wilie that this can only happen in fairy tales, not in real life. Later in the episode, Wolffy's tears splashing onto Wolnie and Wilie is what wakes them up from the effects of sleeping flower... or so Wolffy thinks. Turns out the flower's effects wear out by themselves eventually.
  • Synchronized Swarming: In Mighty Little Defenders episode 5, Huiertai accidentally releases a swarm of bees from a beehive who form into such shapes as a hammer and a mace as they chase after him.

  • 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 occurring 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.
  • Terms of Endangerment: All of the male goats are prone to affectionately calling the villain Wolffy "Mr. Wolffy".
  • Terrestrial Sea Life: In Flying Island: The Sky Adventure episode 16, a fish named Bro Groupie unexpectedly shows up to play in the Rainbow Games and gets Weslie and Paddi to help him past an obstacle in a maze. As the fish explains, he does naturally live in water, but he and his pals are taking a vacation for the games.
  • Theme-and-Variations Soundtrack: It's mostly obvious in the first season, where the theme music's melody is worked into a number of the recurring synth tunes within the show itself.
  • Theme Tune Roll Call: The first Chinese theme song names, in order, Weslie, Tibbie, Paddi, Sparky, Slowy, Old Mandy, Wolnie, and Wolffy.
  • They Call Me MISTER Tibbs!: In Joys of Seasons episode 50, Paddi, after consuming a special sunflower seed invented by Mr. Slowy that makes whoever eats it emit heat and warm up anyone close to them, tells Sparky to call him "Master Paddi". Later in the episode, Wolnie is surprised to find Paddi outside and calls him "Paddi", only for him to tell her to call him "Master Paddi" as well.
  • Thinking Out Loud: Wolffy often talks to himself out loud about how he plans to catch the goats, even if no one's listening to him. This is because the audience needs to know what Wolffy plans to do.
  • Third-Person Person:
    • Large Ham Wolffy is prone to speaking about himself in the third person, for emphasis. Even more in Chinese.
    • Brother Tai speaks about himself as Brother Tai. Very hammy. More frequent in Chinese.
    • The goats and Wilie do it at times (it's not considered as hammy an act in Mandarin).
  • Through a Face Full of Fur: Both Wolffy and Wolnie sometimes have blushes that show through their wolf fur. Their son Wilie has little blushes on his face all the time.
  • Tickle Torture: In Great War in the Bizarre World episode 10 and continuing into episode 11, Wolffy tickles Jolly on the feet to make him say which of the items the goats have carried with them are the Luminous Ray. Later in episode 11, Jolly tickles Wolffy in the feet for having tried to cook him alongside Eggy.
  • Time Bomb:
    • In Joys of Seasons episode 4, Wolffy gives a new coat to Master Pao Pao with a time bomb attached to it, and Pao Pao and the goats have to figure out how to stop its countdown before it explodes. When the time bomb does "explode", it's revealed that it wasn't actually a bomb and a little cuckoo-bird chicken pops out of it.
    • In Happy, Happy, Bang! Bang! episode 56, Wolffy sets up a ticking time bomb in the trophy for whoever wins Duck-Billed Luen's fan club contest. Unfortunately for him, Wolnie ends up winning the contest, and the bomb destroys Wolf Castle.

  • Time-Passage Beard: In Mighty Little Defenders episode 47, Wizard waits for General Wolf for so long that he grows a goatee. The goatee spontaneously disappears after General Wolf comes to the door.
  • Title Confusion: 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".
  • Title Montage: Certain seasons have intros that make use of episode clips while others don't.
  • Too Many Mouths: In Joys of Seasons episode 70, Paddi comes back from his work with no grass and makes up the excuse that it was eaten by a mountain ghost with, among other features, two mouths. Sure enough, the mountain ghost the goats encounter later on does have two mouths - one on the front of its head and one on the back.
  • Tooth Strip: The goats have undivided strips of teeth.
  • Towering Flower: Among the Bizarre World's flora are flowers, a lot of them small, but some as large as trees.
  • Trailers Always Spoil: The official YouTube descriptions sometimes give away the endings in their plot summaries.
  • Translated Cover Version: The English dub of Joys of Seasons translates the theme song into English.
  • Translator Microbes: In Mighty Little Defenders episode 4, Uncle Huiertai gives Wolffy, who has been transformed into a dog, a device that allows him to understand what he is saying and communicate with him.
  • Transformation Trinket: In Mighty Little Defenders, General Wolf's functional chips transform those who use them. For example, Wolffy uses a chip that transforms him into a dog, and Wonky uses a chip that makes him much stronger.
  • Trapped in TV Land: Invoked by Wolffy in Happy, Happy, Bang! Bang! episode 38, where he invents a portal that lets one travel into television and movie screens and enter the program or film they're playing. Wolffy uses the portal to trap Paddi in the film Dao Yang Kong Jian and chase after him.
  • Tree Buchet: In Joys of Seasons episode 45, Paddi triggers a Hair-Trigger Avalanche to escape from Wolffy and Wolnie. 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.
  • [Trope Name]: There's an official backpack that reads, "Product Name - Product Description".
  • Truck Driver's Gear Change: The theme song for Mighty Little Defenders, "Marching Bravely", pitch-shifts from an E note to an F note.

    • One poster calls the show Pleasant Goat and Big Big Walf.
    • The official English title for episode 26 of Joys of Seasons is "Good Deeds Goes Unpunished", which should be "Good Deeds Go Unpunished".

  • Ungrateful Bastard: Wolffy's reaction to the goats saving him is usually to try to capture them anyway.
  • Universal-Adaptor Cast: These characters have done quite a lot. Just to name some things, they've played sports, raced cars, gone to the ancient times, solved mysteries, explored the sea and the sky, and even worked in an office of all things.
  • 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 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. He takes a long time debating it, drooling/panting over the rice with flushed cheeks.
    Wolffy: I love your fried rice!
  • Unwanted Assistance:
    • In Marching to the New Wonderland, the Spider of Justice is not well-liked because, while he simply wants to help people, he drives them away instead because he has no idea his help annoys them more than anything.
    • In Flying Island: The Sky Adventure episode 18, the Rainbow Beans go around trying to assist people, not noticing until later that they're not helping by much (for example, they turn off the TV when someone was trying to watch a kaiju movie under the logic that the viewer was scared of it, and when Wilie says he's not hungry, they feed him anyway and intensify the stomachache he has).
  • V-Formation Team Shot: The title card for episode 124, which references Star Wars, has the goats in a V formation.
  • Vague Age: Nobody's age has actually been officially confirmed.
  • Variations on a Theme Song: The original theme song was first done by by Ivy Koo, but Joys of Seasons uses a version by Yang Peiyi.

  • Villain Protagonist: Wolffy is given enough focus in certain episodes and seasons that he borders on being the protagonist sometimes.
  • Vine Swing: Master Paopao does one near the end of Joys of Seasons episode 24 as part of a surprise paintball attack on the goats.
  • Visible Invisibility: In Marching to the New Wonderland episode 2, Paddi and Jonie make their train invisible, leaving it mostly transparent but still visible.
  • Visible Odor: In episode 173, the wolves notice a nice smell coming from the goats. The smell is visible as a trail of white steam.
  • Visible Sigh: It's pretty common for characters to have little white clouds when they sigh heavily.
  • Visual Pun: In Joys of Seasons episode 7, Paddi has his pet egg Eggy sneak into Mr. Slowy's laboratory to find him something to eat, and Eggy retrieves an egg that Paddi, after eating it, finds out is actually an egg-shaped bomb. 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. Wolffy's voice went from ranging between deep and higher-pitched nasally to settling on the lighter one. In short, their voices are getting progressively higher.
  • Voiceover Translation: The Vietnamese dub features a Vietnamese woman talking over the Chinese audio.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: In Mighty Little Defenders, Wolfram, with the help of a machine owned by General Wolf, creates mud golems that can change their shape to resemble anyone and use this ability to disguise themselves as they go after the goats.
  • Vomit Discretion Shot: Wolffy in episode 173. After he eats disgusting cookies, he has a Vomit Indiscretion Shot at first only to later have a normal discretion shot where he vomits a crab out of his mouth off-screen.

  • What Song Was This Again?: The Chinese theme song begins with a Theme Tune Roll Call of the main characters: "Weslie, Tibbie, Paddi, Sparky, Slowy, Old Mandy, Wolnie, Wolffy". The English version changes these lyrics and doesn't name the characters at all: "I look up, I look down, and everywhere I go, I'm happy that I know life's like a miracle". Downplayed as only this verse is changed and the rest of the song is still similar to the original.

Weslie, under the effects of a potion that controls his impulsiveness, just tells Sparky to take his time, but this wastes enough time to let the bomb finish its countdown. It doesn't explode, though, and Sparky throws it into the distance; the bomb knocks Wolffy out of the tree he was perched in.
  • Wolves Always Howl at the Moon: The first episode gives a reason why they howl at the moon - it's to commemorate Martial Wolf's efforts to catch the goats.
  • Word Salad Title: What does Happy, Happy, Bang! Bang! actually mean?
  • World in the Sky: Flying Island: The Sky Adventure, as its name implies. Weslie's friends are sent to different floating worlds and Weslie has to travel through the sky to find his friends.

  • Worthless Treasure Twist: In Flying Island: The Sky Adventure episode 17, the fish duo win the competition's prize and find it's a bunch of coupons. These probably wouldn't be that worthless, except they're all past their expiration date.
  • Wounded Gazelle Gambit: In Mighty Little Defenders episode 50, Flat-Beak Allen chokes on a peanut and is saved by Jonie, who unwittingly hurts his back in the process.

  • Yonkoma: There's a 4-column comic strip of small, fun stories with little context.
  • You Are Fat: In Great War in the Bizarre World episode 1, the goats laugh at the Queen Bee when they see her for the first time, and Sparky can't help but point out how fat she is. One of the Queen Bee's guards immediately stops him, saying he can't insult the queen.
  • You Are the New Trend: In Joys of Seasons episode 75, everyone thinks Tibbie is so adorable that they try to copy her every appearance and pose. For the appearances, this extends to the veil she uses to cover her pimple-covered face and the pimples themselves at the end of the episode, after Tibbie takes off said veil.
  • You Can't Go Home Again: In episode 234, Wolffy flies to the desert in a Flying Saucer. His ship happens to land on a tall cactus, so when he gets out, he falls to the ground and has no easy way to reach the ship again or travel home.

While Wolffy's climbing the cactus, the goats take Wolffy's ship and fly away, leaving Wolffy with no means at all of returning to Green Green Grassland.

Tropes specific to the films:

    In general/unsorted 
  • 2D Visuals, 3D Effects: 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.
  • Big Damn Movie: They all have very dramatic plots, much more so than the show, but to name a few examples:
    • 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.
  • Canon Foreigner: The films feature characters that are made specifically for them and never appear in the original TV show.
  • Covers Always Lie: For the 2023 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.
  • 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 filmnote . Specifically, the animals represented by the films are as follows:
    • The Super Adventure uses the bull as its associated animal. No actual bulls appear in the film, but the bacteria kingdoms are called the White Bull Kingdom, the Black Bull Kingdom, and the Yellow Bull Kingdom.
    • Desert Trek: The Adventure of the Lost Totem uses the tiger as its animal by featuring a tiger named Lord Japper as its antagonist.
    • Moon Castle: The Space Adventure features the rabbit as its animal by featuring the goats helping Wandi the rabbit and his sister, Queen Luna, to save the moon.
    • Mission Incredible: Adventures on the Dragon's Trail as suggested by the title, prominently features dragons as characters and has one of the dragons, Xiao Shen Long, helping the goats to save the Dragon's World from evil dragons.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • Amazing Pleasant Goat uses the goat as its animal by having the main characters traveling back in time and meeting a bunch of prehistoric goats.
  • Enemy Mine: The films frequently feature the goats and the wolves teaming up to fight a common enemy.
  • Face on the Cover: One poster of the 2023 movie is Wolffy's smirking face.
  • Long Title: Some of the film titles, particularly if they have the name of the series added at the beginning.
    • Pleasant Goat and Big Big Wolf — Desert Trek: The Adventure of the Lost Totemnote 
    • Pleasant Goat and Big Big Wolf — Moon Castle: The Space Adventure
    • Pleasant Goat and Big Big Wolf — Mission Incredible: Adventures on the Dragon's Trail
    • Pleasant Goat and Big Big Wolf — The Mythical Ark: Adventures in Love & Happiness

  • The Movie: It reached 10 movies in 2022 with the release of Dunk for Future. Production company Creative Power Entertaining intended to make films for every animal of the Eastern Zodiac but they stopped basing their films off it.

    The Super Adventure 
  • Burning with Anger: When Mr. Slowy gets angry at Wolnie for pestering him over Wolffy, he is surrounded by a flame.

  • Collapsing Lair: 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.
  • Comically Missing the Point: 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?"
  • Disney Death: There are two. 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 to his normal size.
  • Early Installment Weirdness:
    • The film doesn't have the designated zodiac animal (the bull) featured as a character like the later ones. Instead, they simply give the bacteria kingdoms a bull motif in their names (White Bull Kingdom, Black Bull Kingdom, and Yellow Bull Kingdom).

  • Shared Unusual Trait: Dong Dong and Cha Cha 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.
  • Waddling Head: The various bacteria from the White Bull and Black Bull Kingdoms are nothing but heads with feet, tails, and stubby arms.
  • War Arc: The movie is about the goats shrinking to investigate what's made Mr. Slowy's snail friend sick. The cause of his illness is a war raging between two factions of bacteria that the goats assist in stopping.

    The Tiger Prowess/Desert Trek: The Adventure of the Lost Totem 
  • All Deserts Have Cacti: Lord Japper creates an amusement park right where Goat Village is.

  • Hollywood Mirage: 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.
  • Magic Carpet: The sphinxes guarding the pyramid containing the totem give Weslie and Wolffy a flying carpet so that they can get back to the amusement park that was built where Goat Village is.
  • Mobile Shrubbery: Wolffy walks around under a bush to avoid the various spotlights at Lord Japper's amusement park.

  • Pain-Powered Leap: Weslie and Wolffy are in the temple containing the totem they are looking for and are suddenly surrounded by flames. Weslie jumps up to a pole that is hanging on the ceiling, but Wolffy cannot reach it, so he grabs a cactus and jumps on it to boost the height of his jump.
  • Riddling Sphinx: Two sphinxes 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 of sand.

He jumps out of the dogpile, using the two minions he was already attacking as weapons to push back the other minions.
  • Expressive Mask: The Bitter Gourd King wears a sheet of paper on his face bearing the Chinese symbol "苦", meaning "bitter". This mask does not move for most of the film, but near the end, the mask's mouth moves when he accidentally swallows one of Wolffy's tears of joy and stops being bitter.
  • Gelatinous Trampoline: Weslie's gang is chased by some of the Bitter Gourd King's soldiers into the Jelly District, consisting of the ground being made entirely of jelly that the characters bounce on to outrun the soldiers.

  • Recursive Canon: A joke 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.

  • It Was with You All Along: 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.

  • The Cameo: The aliens from The Intriguing Alien Guests are among the spectators during the goats' big basketball game with Team Tiger.
  • Continuity Nod: Weslie and Wolffy have an exchange that's borrowed from Rescue Across Time, episode 41:
    Weslie: Wolffy, how long have we known each other for?
    Wolffy: About 5,000 episodes.
  • Down to the Last Play: It looks like Team Tiger is going to win at first, but then it's demanded that the clock be reset, as it wasn't stopped when someone made the shot. This gives Team Defenders only half a second to land another basket... and they manage to do it, giving them two extra points - just enough to avoid being a point lower than or tying with Team Tiger.
  • Formerly Fat: Paddi eats so much that he gets a bloated belly and cannot properly play in basketball due to his weight making it hard to run. By the time the training montage is done, he has exercised enough to be able to play again.
  • Punny Name: Mr. Al Cheapo, a chicken who constantly cuts down his employees' salaries when he sees them slacking off; he's likely named after the term "el cheapo".
  • Skipping School: Tiger Wing, an opponent to Weslie and his team, skips school a few times so that he can go play basketball. This understandably frustrates his father, who rightfully calls him out for ignoring his studies, but Tiger Wing doesn't want anything to do with this argument, saying he'd rather practice for the city basketball game.
  • Splitting Pants: Right at the beginning of the training montage that has the goats prepare for the big game, Paddi has enough trouble getting his sports shirt on after having eaten so much that it causes his pants to rip.
  • Truck Driver's Gear Change: The cover of "Don't Think I'm Just a Little Goat" heard at the end of the movie pitch-shifts from an F key to a higher D key.
  • Written Sound Effect: A sound effect bubble reading "嘭!!" - meaning "Bang!!" - appears when Tiger Wing's dad accidentally crashes his motorcycle near Wolffy, and twice later during the training montage when Sparky hits (or tries to hit) the basketball hoop.

Pleasant Goat and Big Big Wolf

The projectile bounces on the walls, hits kitchen items, hits a pole, and hits the rock underneath Wolffy's pot, causing the pot to tip over.

How well does it match the trope?
