* RealitySubtext: The short was made at the height of Armenia's energy crisis in the early 90's. Much of the country faced deforestation during the cold winters with people having no other way to heat their homes.

* AmusingInjuries: Like an axe wedged in a man's scull. The man is still alive and doesn't even feel much pain.

* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs



* FridgeLogic: Okay, we realise that these shorts are fairy tales, but still: how come an obviously Soviet corrupt store manager can own a land and raise taxes? (Under Communism a private individual can't do these actions on his own; only the state can.)

* HowDoYouLikeThemApples: The three apples at the end for "those who listened and believed" is an allusion to the typical [[TheStinger ending]] of Armenian folktales.

[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hCKg1lURSvg An Axe (1994)]]: Based on a short story ''Brother Axe'' by Hovhannes Tumanyan. A village had no woodcutting tools and people were getting firewood in most primitive ways -- using their hands and teeth. A passing woodcutter gave them an axe. But the villagers didn't know how to use it, maimed themselves and destroyed their village.
* AmusingInjuries: Like an axe wedged in a man's scull. The man is still alive and doesn't even feel much pain.
* AndIMustScream: People frozen inside ice blocks seem to be alive and waiting for spring to thaw them. Well, still better than frozen to death.
* DarkHumour: People get maimed, probably freeze to death, are left homeless in the middle of the winter... Yet it's so over the top, you will smile if not laugh.
* HappyEnding: If you can call that setting your village on fire to get warm.
* NoOSHACompliance: People don't know how to use an axe. Or how to handle hot objects in flammable houses.
* RealitySubtext: The cartoon was made in the early 1990s, when independent Armenia was suffering from the most severe fuel shortages and Soviet-era infrastructure was falling apart.
* TheUnintelligible: There are no words in the cartoon, just exclamation of joy and pain. Thus no need to translate the dialogs.
