    • The Wonder Pets do not return to their home at the end of the "Save the Squirrel" episode.

    • Tidbits: The Wonder Pets! turn the flyboat into a "beeboat" in "Save the Bee!" and fly through a shrinking machine that shrinks them to the size of bees. Tuck drives the boat in "Save the Bee!" and Ming-Ming drives it "Save the Squirrel!" For the first time, one of the human occupants of the classroom is shown on the program. A girl can be seen through the classroom door in "Save the Bee!" just after the class dismisses, buzzing, dancing and singing that she's a bee.

    • Celery Treat: In "Save the Bee!" the Wonder Pets enjoy their celery with honey offered by the Queen Bee.

      In "Save the Squirrel!" the Mama Squirrel tells them that can't just eat plain-old celery at Coney Island. She gives them cotton candy to top it with.

    • Dress Up Time: In "Save the Bee!" Linny pops out of the box and says that they're telling the story of how a bee makes honey. Ming-Ming flies out of the box dresses as a honeybee and sings and Tuck models a flower from which she's getting nectar. Linny reappears as a beehive.

      In "Save the Squirrel!" the three dress up for an "old-fashioned day at the beach." Linny and Ming-Ming are both wearing cute dresses and hats, while Tuck wears swimming shorts and a fake mustache.

    • Opening Intros: Neither story's intro features the kids chanting the theme. Instead, the first features light, cheerful orchestral music and the second features carnival-style music. In the first intro, the "W" logo is seen in a small pond and nature scenes are shown throughout. Carnival elements are featured in the second intro.
