Added DiffLines:

* AwesomeButImpractical: The director's EnforcedMethodActing on Bolt may get great acting out of him, but it's expensive, requires intense effort on the staff, and puts the already low-rated show at risk

* ArtShift: "Barking at the Moon" shifts from real life places to 2D graphics in the style of the [[BlandNameProduct Waffle Barn]] map earlier in the movie.

* {{Expy}}: Mitten's pigeon mobster underlings are most definitely not the Goodfeathers from ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}''.

* CaptainErsatz: Bolt has more than a few resemblances to KryptoTheSuperdog. And that's {{Lampshade}}d by Bolt early on, when he scoffs at being asked if he can fly.

* ForWantOfANail: In an effort to simply boost ratings, a TV show loses it's biggest star, resulting in his sub-par replacement almost ''killing'' his co-star, who quits shortly after, as is forced to [[JumpingTheShark make up a convoluted plot]] to cover it all up which (presumably) ends in it's cancellation.

'''The Director:''' You're missing ''everything'', Mindy. You see a dog. ''I'' see an animal that believes, with every fiber of his being; EVERY FIBER; that the girl he loves is in mortal danger! I see a depth of emotion on the face of that canine, the likes of which has ''never'' been captured on screen before. NEVER, Mindy from the network. We jump through hoops to make sure Bolt believes everything is real. It's why we don't miss marks. It's why we don't re-shoot. It's CERTAINLY why we do NOT allow the dog to see BOOM MIKES... because, Mindy from the network...

* BrandishmentBluff: [[spoiler: Mittens threatens to unsheathe her claws on any pigeon unfortunate enough to fail to bring her a proper tribute of food, all the while never actually brandishing said claws. Makes sense given that the owners who abandoned her also had her declawed.]]

-->'''Mindy Parker''': Wow. Okay, you want reality, here you go chief. The show's too predictable. The girl's in danger, the dog saves her from the creepy English guy, we get it. There's always a happy ending. And our focus groups tell us they're not happy with happy. So maybe you should, I don't know, spend a little less time worrying about the dog's method acting, and more time figuring out how to stop 20 year olds in Topeka from changing the channel. Because if you lose so much as half a rating point, so help me, I will fire everyone in this room, starting with you! How's that for real!?

** Such people also earn themselves their very own spot in TheScrappy gallery. Ratings and maintaining a network are ''not'' viable excuses for the expense a dog's mental well-being, endangering a young girl's life, and once again stifling a director's creative control (along with possibly corrupting [[DoingItForTheArt any integrity he may have had]] before her first appearance). Not to mention this spectacular "award-winning" line:
