  • Tear Jerker:
    • The Mother's Day episode where Nutsy recalls losing her mother and finally meets her long-lost father. Sure, it has a happy ending
    • On the same note, the rambunctious Blinky brought down to tears while telling his friends the story of how he lost his father to illness
    • In the season finale of the third season, Blinky is crying again when he feels that he has to give himself up to Basil Circus to save his family and friends. Becomes worse when he plans shatter as a bushfire is heading toward his home as he's helplessly locked in a cage!
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks!: This is the new CGI design for Blinky. Fans of the Yoram Gross Blinky were understandably not pleased. Ironically, the same sentiment was spewed forth by the fans of the original books two decades ago when Yoram Gross revealed his design for Blinky.

    • Flap, occasionally.
    • Nutsy because her mother is dead and her father is lost (she finds him in the Mother's Day episode,however).
