* FollowTheLeader: It's hard not to notice that the film is aping the ''{{WesternAnimation/Shrek}}'' formula to a T, except of course without the strong anti-Disney overtones of the first ''Shrek'' film.
** The story and characters themselves draw several heavy parallels to that of ''WesternAnimation/JimmyNeutronBoyGenius'', as noticed by one YouTube commenter, who said the following:
-->They are both the exact same story: a short, intelligent protagonist tries to strengthen his reputation when aliens invade. And if you don't believe me there, Chicken Little recycles the "Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius" plot point for point:\\
They both start with the main character making a mistake. (Jimmy Neutron contacts aliens without his parents' permission/ Chicken Little thinks the sky is falling)\\
They both miss the bus while being ridiculed and a pop song plays. (Jimmy Neutron Theme by BowlingForSoup/ One Little Slip by BarenakedLadies)\\
They both have a scene in their school where major and minor characters are introduced (show and tell/ role call and dodge-ball fight)\\
Both main characters have a jetpack (Jimmy's is his backpack/ Chicken Little's is a soda)\\
Both accidentally get in trouble with their parents (Jimmy flies a jet-pack in the house/ Chicken Little pulls the fire alarm)\\
Both go against the norm to win over their peers without parental favor. (Jimmy sneaks out to Retroland/ Chicken Little joins the baseball team)\\
Both wish upon a star (Jimmy wishes for life without adults/ Chicken Little wishes for Buck's love)\\
Aliens invade (the Yokians steal all the adults in Retroville/ the aliens in Chicken Little come for... unexplained reasons)\\
The main character has a scene of them having a good time (Jimmy and friends enjoy life without parental control/ Chicken little wins the baseball championship)\\
Both discover evidence of an alien invasion (Jimmy finds the note that doesn't match his parents' handwriting/ Chicken Little found a piece of the sky)\\
Both try to confront the aliens (Jimmy organizes all the kids to build spaceships and travel to another planet/ the fish gets captured and Chicken Little chases the spaceship)\\
Both have a scene where the main character explores the aliens' culture (Jimmy witnesses the Yokiens' advancements/ \\
The aliens find out about the main characters and attack (the Yokiens capture Jimmy and the kids/ the aliens in Chicken Little flat-out attack the town)\\
Both main characters have a heart-to-heart speech during the threat (Cindy talks Jimmy into breaking them out/ Buck and Chicken Little make up during the invasion)\\
They both stop the aliens while giving a monologue (Jimmy gets offended by the aliens making fun of his size/ Chicken Little and Buck convince the alien leader to be a better parent)\\
The obnoxious girl is no longer a threat (Cindy vows to not be cruel to Jimmy anymore/ Foxy Loxy has her entire personality altered)\\
In the end, itís all a misunderstanding (Jimmy apologizes to his parents/ the aliens just came to pick acorns)\\
And the characters are the exact same in both movies as well:\\
A short protagonist who is more intelligent than all the rest of the town (Jimmy Neutron/ Chicken Little)\\
Parents that donít understand the protagonistís ideas (Hugh and Judy Neutron/ Buck Cluck)\\
An entire town that ridicules him (Retroville/ Oakey Oaks)\\
An obnoxious girl who gains pleasure from ridiculing him (Cindy Vortex/ Foxy Loxy) and her unneeded sidekick (Libby Folfax/ Goosey Loosey)\\
A few losers who are the main characterís only friends, including a fat one (Carl Wheezer/ Runt of the Litter) and a weirdo (Sheen Estevez/ Fish out of Water and Abby Mallard)\\
An annoying teacher (Miss Fowl/ Mr. Woolensworth)\\
A cool kid with a VERY minor role (Nick Dean/ Morkubine Porcupine)\\
Aliens that attack due to a misunderstanding (the Yokians/ the aliens from Chicken Little, whatever theyíre called) including their overly angry leader (King Goobot/ Kirbyís father) and and an a really annoying one (Ooblar/ Kirby)\\
One last note that makes them similar is that they both have good CGI animation, but nothing Disney or Dreamworks quality. And they both have soundtracks composed entire of pop songs.

* BreakTheCutie: The premise of the movie is a cute little chicken making a mistake and follows by getting ostracized by the townspeople, not letting him live it down. It's clear it tears on his self-esteem and he's more desperate than ever to get his father's approval, who's ashamed of him.
