This series provides examples of:
- Animal Stereotypes: Played with—Snook has the sleepy, slow-moving demeanor typical of a sloth, but is depicted as an easygoing Nice Guy rather than a Lazy Bum.
- Cool Old Lady: Madge.
- Edutainment Show
- Non-Mammalian Hair: Madge.
- Recap Episode: The show had an unfortunate tendency to recycle a lot of material.
- Seldom-Seen Species: Bob and Birdette.
- Shown Their Work: Birdette the Quetzal Bird lacks the long train of feathers her species is famous for. This is because she is female and those feathers are only found on male quetzals.
- Team Dad: Snook is this to all the residents of the tree.
- Title Theme Tune
- What Happened to the Mouse?: Madge suddenly disappears from the show with no mention after the first season.
- Wrap-Up Song: Every episode ends with the song "Try to Touch the Sky", as Snook sings to the audience that their time is through for now and will be waiting the next time they come to the World Tree.
- The world goes spinning round and round, it's true
We've had our time and now we're through
But you and I forever will be friends
Well try to touch the sky where clouds never endAnd we'll search for wonder all around
And you'll find me hanging upside down
And you and I together in a big, big world
Well try to touch the sky in a big, big worldYou have to go, I know it's time
So give me five
This whole world is yours and mine
