* Considering how ''{{Disney/Zootopia}}'' is a metaphor for racism using mammals in place of humans, it was kind of inevitable. The movie demonstrates that intentionally [[InnocentlyInsensitive or not]], ''anybody'' can be a carrier of racism (up to and including the main characters ''themselves'), even those who are open-minded and/or suffered the most from racism. While it's harsh, and not really a thing anybody wants to admit, it's pretty much how racism works in the real world. Fortunately, the blow is softened in a couple of senses; 1), it shows that anybody ''can'' overcome their biases if one acknowledges and actively on moving past them. 2) Some bigoted characters ''are'' able to become more open-minded and accepting of other groups when given the time and encouragement, such as Judy's parents and [[DaChief Chief Bogo]].

** A ''lot'' of Steven Moffat stories have characters destroying themselves or causing huge amounts of destruction for love, which might not come off as so bad were his romances not overwhelmingly [[DestructiveRomance destructive and unhealthy fixations held by sociopaths]] that [[RomanticisedAbuse it's hard to imagine anyone wanting anyway]]. (Although he rarely writes a romantic relationship without at least a kernel of genuine goodness in it.) His use of 'charming psychopaths' as positive {{Escapist Character}}s leads some viewers to find his stories glorifying selfishness and brutality.

** "Murtaugh" endorses modern America's culture of losing, by telling us that even if you put in zero effort and have no talent whatsoever, you deserve a trophy just for participating. Marshall tries to point out how insane that system is, but the ending of the episode thoroughly agrees with Lily.
*** Not to mention that because of that system, Lily's kindergarten basketball team does not even know how to play and loses their game by more than 100 points without even making one basket.

** "Murtaugh" endorses modern America's culture of losing, by telling us that even if you put in zero effort puts the "Winning and have no talent whatsoever, you deserve losing doesn't matter, it's about having fun" mindset against the "Play to win, winning is fun" mentality. However, it plays them in such a trophy just for participating. way it approaches parody. The "Play to win" mentality is portrayed with Marshall tries to point out how insane that system is, but the ending of the episode thoroughly agrees with Lily.
*** Not to mention that because of that system,
being a DrillSergeantNasty when coaching Lily's kindergarten basketball team does not even know class how to play Basketball, making them do nothing but drills and loses their game sucking out any enjoyment from the game. Lily's "It's about fun" mentality sees her ''not even teaching the kids how to play'', just letting them run around aimlessly before giving them a reward for taking part. At the end of the episode, Marshall accepts that being rewarded for taking part isn't bad, but Lily still stands by more than 100 her opinion that Marshall was completely wrong, which leaves us with the Aesop "Winning and losing isn't important, because you'll be rewarded if you didn't even try in the first place". The lunacy of this is even {{lampshaded}} within the episode, as Marshall points without even making one basket. out that you don't get handed things in the real world and you need to put work in to achieve your goals.

** It also counts as a BrokenAesop. It's a rather odd moral to have in a franchise that highlights the close and friendly bond trainers can develop with their Pokemon.
