Tropes

  • Absurd Phobia:
    • Ferd has a weird fear of pumpkins.
  • Awesome Art: While a combination of the 2017 DuckTales series (which Youngberg went on to make 17 years later) and a typical classic Cartoon Network show (like PPG, Dexter's Laboratory and Billy and Mandy, the art style is also breath-taking and blends in well with its genre.
  • Crossover: It has two with Ginny and the Odd Girls named Ginny and Ferd and The Superb Adventures of Captain Nocturne and Light Gal named Ferd's Heroes.
  • Cry Cute: Bryanna.
  • Heel-Face Turn: [Aqua]
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold:
    • [Crawling Creeper]
  • Misspelling Out Loud: TBD.
  • Official Couple:
    • Bryanna and Jon were this, though they broke up a few issues after Oh, For the Love Of..., confirmed by Matt Youngberg, but also revealed that they are still friends.
  • Spelling for Emphasis: TBD.
  • What Do You Mean, It's For Kids?: Despite being a funny and lovable supernatural comic book series, it does tend to have darker moments.
    • TBD.

Trivia

  • Adored by The Network: [Nick with Supernatural Tales of Ferd]
  • Cash Cow Franchise: TBD.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • Originally, Ferd the Zombie Horse was originally going to be named Fred the Zombie Horse, but however, a Moonlake Comics employee accidentally misspelled Fred's name as Ferd during a sketch. Loving the mistake and admitting that it is funny and a great mistake, Youngberg and Moonlake Comics decided to rename Fred to Ferd the Zombie Horse.
      • It would have been called Fred the Zombie Horse: The Supernatural Adventures.
    • Ferd originally sported a completely different appearance (being a brown-spotted horse with a more zombified appearance) when he was proposed and during early production, but Matt made his decision to redesign Ferd to make it more family-suitable, making the Ferd design that we know and love today.

YMMV

  • Fan-Preferred Couple: Despite the breakup and Jon not appearing ever again, there are fans that still ship Bryanna/Jon.
  • Fandom Rivalry:
    • [Fairly Oddparents]
  • Friendly Fandoms:
    • Fans of this fanbase rather gets along with fans of Brothers and Monsters and DuckTales, mainly since Youngberg would go on and produce those shows.

    • [Captain Nocturne and Light Gal]
    • Fans of this has shown huge interest and likings on the The Freaky Tales of Freaky Mona show and therefore, gets along with their fanbase, and vice-versa.
