  • Bizarro Episode: The "Flying Bathtub" episode is notably weirder than the other episodes, and breaks the normal formula: Unlike normal episodes, it's Bello and Mina who have a wacky adventure together, not Bello and Goomo, and in that respect is sort of also a role reversal. There's a rap sung by the characters, not a pop number by Guille Milkyway like usual, the plot revolves around a literal flying bathtub and a brief scene involves a tap-dancing basketball.

  • Ear Worm: Now with its own page right here.
  • Les Yay: While you can interpret Bello's and Goomo's close relationship as just a friendship, it's really hard to deny the subtext between Mina and Rita in "Home, Flying Home", which included Mina moving into Rita's house for a week, them spooning in bed and Rita undressing Mina in her sleep to wash her shirt. What follows is them trying to live a week together, which goes horribly because of their different lifestyles. After getting into a big fight, Rita discovers that Mina tried the whole week to make a tea that changes colours specifically for Rita, and Mina realizes that despite their differences, she really likes Rita as well. They decide to spend another week together as roommates.
  • Moe: All of the kids. Especially Rita.
  • Moment of Awesome: When Bello restored his friends' memories by popping musical bubbles in "Silent Sheriff".
  • Most Wonderful Sound: Whenever any of the kids laugh, it's pretty adorable.
    • The musical bubbles that float all over Jammbo.
    • The dodos squeaking.
  • Periphery Demographic: Teenagers like it for how cute it looks.
  • Spiritual Successor: Can be seen as one to The Backyardigans. Apart from the similarities between Ongo and Austin, we also have the multicolored animals, heavy focus on music, and a Minimalist Cast.
  • Tastes Like Diabetes: Only a little bit.
  • Toy Ship: Bello and Mina.
  • Ugly Cute: Goomo looks noticeably more goofy than the other kids, but he still manages to be very adorable.
  • Viewer Gender Confusion: Due to his haircut, his gender-neutral clothing, and the fact that he's purple, there's probably a couple fans who thought Ongo was a girl.
