** One large elephant is constantly trampling a smaller elephant (making its trunk-horn honk each time). After one trample leaves the smaller elephant behind the larger one, it decides it's had enough and kicks its tormentor in the rear. The elephant splits into three somewhat smaller elephants who make trumpet noises at the other elephant before it grows to a massive size and uses a pair of cymbals to smash the three into a load of tiny elephants. Also a MomentOfAwesome.

** One clown climbs to the top of another ladder and pulls out a hot dog on a skewer to cook over the flames.

** Especially the scene where Timothy spooks the gossiping elephants using antics such as [[FelonyMisdemeanor jiggling his face, twitching his nose, whistling, and doing a napoleon pose.]] This is also a {{Moment of Awesome}}, for putting the snobby elephants in their place
*** Funnier still when you consider there is some {{Truth in Television}} about this, Mythbusters showed elephants are slightly wary of mice and go out of their way to avoid them.
