One characteristic feature of "Baby Tugs Cub's World" is that every episode has the same segments, in the same order. Research has shown that the formula appeals to young children's attraction to ritual and routine, and that children's participation with the program increases with repetition.

  • Guess what Baby Tugs Cub's thinking about today: Tugs introduces the episode topic, which leads into a film montage of the subject.
  • Goldfish has a question: Goldfish's bowl has a decoration related to the topic, Goldfish relays something factual about the subject and has a question.
  • The Burns Family: Skits featuring Mr. Burns, his brother (known as Mr. Burns' brother, Mr. Burns), or his sister (known as Mr. Burns' sister, Ms. Burns), or any combination of the above, attempting to answer Goldfish's question, but usually fail. The segment is intended to be comical, demonstrating that the Burns aren't all too bright.
  • Kids and Baby: Kids answer 's question, followed by Baby Tugs Cub asking a baby with a prop related to the topic.
  • Tugs Has a Question for You: Baby Tugs Cub asks the viewer to help him, often counting items in a CGI animation.
  • Home Video/Video E-mail: During the first few seasons, home video footage shot by Baby Tugs Cub of other Sesame Street characters. Later replaced by video e-mail, in which Sesame Street characters demonstrate something related to the main topic.
  • Quiz: Baby Tugs Cub asks different questions about the main topic, often with multiple choice answers, and kids, in voice-over, provide the answer. Usually, at least one Sesame Street character appears in each segment. The segment usually begins with Baby Tugs Cub failing to open the Bus until it finally opens up on its own, often pushing him offscreen.
  • Film Insert: Live action films, usually involving a child and their experiences with the subject.
  • TV: Animated segments, seen on a channel devoted to the topic, and usually featuring The Lecture Lady.
  • Expert Interview: To learn more, Baby Tugs Cub talks with an expert, often an inanimate object related to the topic or activity. Book is featured in certain segments.
  • Care Cub Land: Usually occurring during the guest's speech, Goldfish imagines a version of Baby Tugs Cub as a specific animal or in an occupation/activity about Baby Tugs Cub's Variants
  • Closing Song: Baby Tugs Cub and the guest(s) sing the topic word(s), usually to the tune of "Jingle Bells".

The revamped segments follow a shorter, but structured format:

  • Guess what Baby Tugs Cub's wondering about today: Baby Tugs Cub imagines the day's theme, which is illustrated in animated chalk drawings, often featuring other Cartoon characters.
  • Look it up: Joy partakes in an activity pertaining to the theme and shows Baby Tugs Cub videos of each topic while commentating.
  • Game: Baby Tugs Cub and the kids viewers play an interactive game.
  • The Burns Family: Baby Tugs Cub poses a question about the topic to one of the Burns family members.
  • Closing Song: Baby Tugs Cub and Goldfish jam to the "Happy Dance." Unlike the previous segments, the song is not altered to fit the topic of the segment.
