* Some clips in this wiki describe the Great Owl as thematically a dragon. It makes sense; a giant flying beast that's both very dangerous and very wise in old age. Then I thought about the cobwebbing stuck to his wings and back. It just hit me, the webs are meant to make his normally feathered wings look like a western dragon's leathery wings.

* The moving of the Brisby home was fairly dangerous. Timmy's case is obvious, he can't go outside, but why weren't the other children evacuated for this? Or they could have had Mr. Ages, Justin or someone go into the home to take care of the kids and make sure they stayed calm and safe?

* The reason Timmy has to be the hero in the sequel is that if Martin was the hero, Timmy wouldn't care enough to do a FaceHeelTurn, breaking the SelfFulfillingProphecy. That makes Timmy's hero status EVEN MORE arbitrary.



* The two cats survive the elevator falling, despite it audibly crashing a few seconds after Timmy escapes. They then come back to chase him (where they fall down the elevator shaft again). Timmy lampshades this turn of events, that they could come back unharmed after the fall. But the elevator is an explicit ACME product, and while ACME products are always failing in horrific ways they never actually cause long-standing or highly-disabling damage.

* The much disavowed sequel to ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretOfNimh'', ''The Secret of NIMH 2: Timmy to the Rescue'' has one particularly disturbing FridgeHorror moment. [[spoiler: It is when the lab catches fire and the firefighters break open a cage to free several labcoat clad men (presumably scientists) who act and move like dogs]]. It is not scary as a little kid, but once you know some history, several ''very'' unpleasant instances of human experimentation come to mind.
** There's also a "Quickthaw" variant of the same scene: Imagine showing up for work in NIMH one day and several other scientists ''who may have been your colleagues'' capture and forcibly experiment upon you. When it's all said and done you are left as [[AndIMustScream a canine in a human's body]]. And it isn't a whole lot better to think they might have ''volunteered'' for this experiment.
*** What if they made you a man in a dog's body?
** Another example of a "Freeze-by-Time" one, in which you have to know a bit about animal behavior, is especially terrifying; animals, even domestic species, don't just go to people naturally. You have to condition and imprint and handle these animals, especially at a young age, before they look up to a human as someone to trust. Wild animals will avoid people, even if they have food. Most people think the alley cats from before were just that; stray cats. But, their trust of a human, and their willingness to follow him, can only mean one thing; ''these were once someone's pets, and they're'' experimenting ''on them.'' Not only that, but the fact that all you see to try to bring in cats was a bowl of food for them, and they weren't wearing gloves in case the cats scratched them, meant that very docile, pet cats, ''were what they were after.'' After all, they've been studying mental health, and this has been known for a while.



* When the rats and cats are rescued from the burning lab near the end of ''The Secret of NIMH 2: Timmy To The Rescue'' you will notice (probably long after the credits roll) that none of the animals Martin mutated/spliced were rescued.

*** See just below:
* Jenner's plan was doomed from the beginning because he did not know enough. First, living in the Rosebush longer was not only immoral (which he knew and didn't care about), but also impossible since N.I.M.H. agents were coming soon (and that he did ''not'' know). Later, he wants to get the Stone. But all he knows is that it's a magical stone with telekinesic powers. He doesn't know about the "courage of the heart".

*** He is evil, though, so the courage of his heart is corrupted.

** Jeremy is a crow, which are also attracted to sparklies. Also, he's not shown being dumb, just an excitable klutz.
