* In the NTA, one section notes that a group of [[Creator/HPLovecraft Deep Ones]] were taught how to sing and dance by the captain from [[Theatre/HMSPinafore]]. The lyrics shared are quite clearly modeled after "When I Was A Lad" and imagining an abominable fishman singing it is quite humorous.

** The Ingsoc disclaimer at the end: ENJOYMENT IS MANDATORY!



** Jimmy attempts to use a classic Bond gadget - a gun disguised as a cigarette - but it explodes on firing and blows out most of his front teeth. Quatermain points out it'll probably be a decade before they worked out the bugs in the device, roughly the time frame when Bond gadgets started becoming commonplace in the movies.

* The professor and his two young charges exploring the alien menagerie of a British spaceport, which plays the grotesqueness for laughs, and ends with the boy getting his brain eaten by a Tryffid.


Added DiffLines:

* While climbing down some scaffolding, Quartermain gets a good look under Mina's dress. Of course, since this is Victorian England, [[OldTimeyAnkleTaboo the most skin he sees are her ankles]]. It doesn't stop him from clearly being flustered.
-->'''Quartermain''': [-Unbelievable...-]

* Mixed with NightmareFuel, the fact that nearly all the cutesy, child-friendly anthropomorphic animal characters from the early 20th Century are in fact animal hybrids created by [[Literature/TheIslandOfDoctorMoreau Dr. Moreau]].
