- Jerkass Woobie: Ferret has shades of this, he's quick to yell at his friend Parrot, blame him for having a crush on a girl he likes and calls him a gutter rat but his misfortune throughout the short is enough to make someone feel sorry for him. Yeah, he needs a hug.
- So Okay, It's Average: The general consensus as to why this wasn't picked up as a series. It's a cute short, but it's basically a handful of one-note jokes.
YMMV / Ferret and Parrot
