Note: Disney had already adapted the Chicken Little story once, as an 1943 animated short parodying, of all things, Nazi propaganda. See the bottom of the page for tropes relating to it.

Added DiffLines:

* DrenchCelebration: Chicken Little gets soaked in sports drink after winning the baseball game. This gets lampshaded as being part and parcel with "the glory" by the sportscaster.

* MobileFishbowl: Fish Out Of Water wears a scuba helmet filled with water in order to interact with Chicken Little and the others. There is also a background fish character driving a fishbowl car, which begs the question of how he gets out and goes about his day.

In the movie, Chicken Little is male, a nerdy boy who gets bullied in school despite his cleverness because of [[NeverLiveItDown that ONE false alarm]] he created that caused waves of panic throughout the town a year earlier. He also has a troubled relationship with his widowed father, Buck Cluck, who cares more about the approval of his peers than caring for his son. He tends to hang out with other [[RagtagBunchOfMisfits unpopular kids]] -- such as Abby Mallard (a homely duck girl who has a crush on Little, but he doesn't seem to realize it); Runt of the Litter, a cowardly, morbidly obese pig who can't stop eating; and Fish out of Water, who is an actual fish who wears a diving helmet (filled with water) to be able to breathe. They often get teased by Foxy Loxy, a female bully. But as the film progresses, Chicken Little and his friends uncover the presence of extraterrestrials in their town and attempt to warn the now-extremely skeptical townsfolk before all havoc breaks loose.

* DarkerAndEdgier: Though it's still all PlayedForLaughs, this is definitely one of the more bleak and cynical of the usually merry DisneyClassicShorts.

* AssholeVictim: Downplayed. The point of the short was to convey the potential fates of standard careless archetypes such as the GossipyHens and gullible drunks who fall for stories and rumours during the war.

* GoryDiscretionShot: Once the panic-stricken flock has fled into Foxy Loxy's cave, he wraps a napkin around his neck and shoots inside, blocking it off from within with a boulder. The next shot is of Foxy Loxy sucking a final wishbone clean before planting it in the ground next to the others, in a shot deliberately reminiscent of a wartime cemetary.

* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: Deconstructed completely. Foxy Loxy acts and schemes like a standard goofy wise guy predator in a Golden Age cartoon, even falling victim to a bit of slapstick early on. Despite the narrator's predictions however, his plan ''works''. Of course, unlike most cases, Foxy Loxy was smart enough to target dumber prey than himself.


Added DiffLines:

* WrongGenreSavvy: After Foxy Loxy captures the flock in his cave, the narrator assures the audience that he knows how the story folds and TheGoodGuysAlwaysWin. He is then dumbfounded to find Foxy Loxy has successfully eaten the entire flock the next scene.
