* Why doesn't mister orangutan say anything at all for most of the end of the second film? He just... stares.
** I'll hurl a WMG at this one: Maybe he saw the 1986 version of ''[[Film/TheFly1986 The Fly]]''. I know it was baboons in that film, but, hey, it was scary!
* Why did Ms.Hogget´s suit inflated in the sequel? Rule of Funny aside it didn´t make any sense.
** It belonged to a recently deceased clown who owned such outfits. Also, when she hit that [[BuffySpeak waiter person guy]] that landed on the dessert table, he suddenly held up a tag that said "DO NOT PULL" which we can assume he grabbed it by accident. Just common sense, nobody could've missed that.



** Well, to some degree many of these animals are sentient to an extent. We know now that pigs, for example, are among the most intelligent animals and have a certain level of self-awarness, like dogs and cats. Horses too. In some countries they hunt dolphines and eat them, so is kind of complicated even in real life.

* This has always bugged me... so the animals are sentient and can talk. The humans aren´t exactly aware of this, which is why there is no problem with killing a sentient pig and eat it. After all, you don´t know that it is sentient. But... can´t this be considered CarnivoreConfusion? Humans are basically eating a sentient creature, albeit unknowingly. Now, we know that Esme and Arthur love animals and treat the ones at their farm well... which is why it can be a little out-of-character to see them making plans for Christmas dinner considering the circumstances (again, they DON´T KNOW,but...). I whish to know if this can be considered CarnivoreConfusion.

**Maybe Babe didn't use the Password to get the Sheep to do what he said. Maybe he just used it to get them to finally open up and talk to him, before winning them over on his own merits.

** In the book the password is more of a Creed that all sheep know (which sums up as "Sheep aren't stupid") that Babe uses to get their attention, and convinced them that he's nice enough to listen to, since they rightly assume that he wouldn't have been told the password if he wasn't.
