[[caption-width-right:350: [[DullSurprise This definitely looks like the most exotic]] PoliceLineup we've had in years.]]

->''"Let's just say that if a tree falls in the forest you'll get [[RashomonStyle three stories: yours, mine, and the tree's.]]"''
-->-- '''Inspector Nicky Flippers'''

''Hoodwinked'' is an AllCGICartoon movie released in 2005 that parodies the LittleRedRidingHood fairy tale. Possibly inspired by ''{{WesternAnimation/Shrek}}'', the movie is an UrbanFantasy retelling, using a [[TheRashomon Rashomon]]-style interrogation set-up to tell the story, with AlternateCharacterInterpretation for all of the tale's characters.

The movie starts InMediasRes, as the police detain everybody at Granny's house -- the Wolf, the Woodsman, Red Puckett, and Granny -- and interrogate them separately to find out what happened. Each then narrates the events of their day that led up to their arrival at Granny's place.

A sequel titled ''Hoodwinked Too: Hood Versus Evil'', in which the Wolf and Red team up to rescue Literature/HanselAndGretel, was released in April 2011 after several years in DevelopmentHell.
----
!!The original movie contains examples of:

* AdaptationExpansion: Expands the LittleRedRidingHood story.
* AllStarCast: Funnily, this wasn't planned to happen. Originally, a few actors voiced two characters: Tara Strong voiced Red and Zorra, a member of Granny's ski team. David Ogden Stiers voiced Flippers as well as Kirk (if this had stayed, Flippers interviewing Kirk would essentially be one guy interviewing himself). The Edwards brothers' associate Tony Leech voiced Det. Bill Stork, Sally Struthers voiced Granny, Joel [=McCrary=] as Chief Grizzly, and Tom Kenny was Woolworth. Only a few of the original cast roles were kept - such as Patrick Warburton's role as the Wolf and Andy Dick's role as Boingo.
** Due to ExecutiveMeddling by the distributor, a lot of these voice roles were changed in favor of high profile actors:
*** AnneHathaway replaced Strong to provide Red's voice.
*** Jim Belushi replaced Ogden Stiers as Kirk's voice.
*** Anthony Anderson replaced Tony Leech to voice Det. Stork
*** Xzibit replaced [=McCrary=] as Grizzly.
*** Chazz Palminteri replaced Tom Kenny for Woolworth.
*** Benjy Gaither's role as Japeth almost got recast by better known country singers. [[WhatCouldHaveBeen It would have been interesting if someone like Willie Nelson were voicing him.]]
*** The animation had been completed to such an extent that when the roles were recast, the new actors had to deliver the new lines exactly the same way the original lines had been given.
* AlternativeForeignThemeSong: Has its own Japanese [[http://www.56.com/u69/v_MjE5ODQxMzA.html theme song]].
* AnythingButThat: When [[spoiler:Boingo]] is being taken away in the police truck, he pleads, "Not prison! Not for [[spoiler:a cute little bunny rabbit!]]"
* AndNowForSomethingCompletelyDifferent: A very organic look was given to contrast the film from what producer Preston Stutzman called the "candy-coated, brightly colored pastel world[s]" of other CGI films. The filmmakers also took cues from ''TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'' about skewing characters' shapes: For example, if you look closely at Kirk, one eye is slightly larger than the other. [[http://www.awn.com/articles/drtoon/dr-toon-peek-under-hood/page/5%2C1 Sometimes, you wonder if he may have had a small birth defect]]. And Red only has four fingers on each hand, and her overall appearance resembles that of a doll. It's best seen when [[http://www.awn.com/articles/drtoon/dr-toon-peek-under-hood/page/6%2C1 her hands are extended]].
** Unlike the ''{{Shrek}}'' franchise, this film is not supposed to be a satire, so a different style of humor is used. Also, supernatural elements (magic, wizards, fairies) are not present in the story (well, for the most part. Japeth was [[CursedWithAwesome cursed 37 years ago by a mountain witch]] that [[BlatantLies only allows him to sing]])
* AsideGlance: The Wolf gives a brief one after Twitchy says he doesn't drink coffee - while speaking at hyperspeed.
** Red:
*** When she throws a magazine over the side of her treehouse and causes a car to crash, Red blinks and takes a look at the camera at the sound of the crash.
*** When Red is retrieving the recipe book from the vault, the woodpecker asks her, "Are they gonna get your recipes?" Red turns and says "Not today," to the bird. The camera is positioned in such a way that it looks like she is speaking to the camera.
*** Red pauses to give an exasperated stare to the camera when Japeth denies having just spoken normally.
** Also Twitchy gives the camera a pleased look when he hears his voice played back at quarter-speed on a recorder. Fun fact: that's Cory Edwards' actual voice at normal speed.
* ArtisticLicenseEngineering: The tramway that is used for the finale, and made use of in Red's story, has a lot of glaring issues in it that will be easily spotted by anyone who has done mechanical work on a ski resort chairlift: for one thing, the tram cable would need to run in a continuous loop in order to allow for tension to function. There would also need to be a second car going down when this one is going up. Also, the car only runs on a single cable. Because of the increased weight of the cabins, cable cars in the United States have three cables (two outside stationary cables that the cabin grip rides on, and a moving cable in the middle that pulls the car up or down). A lack of intermediate support towers, however, is not entirely unrealistic, as there are actual tramways in the United States (Lone Peak Tramway at Big Sky Resort in Montana, for instance) that don't have any intermediate towers.
** Also, the tram car appears to operate independently of the cable despite having to use that to be pulled up the mountain. The only way it could accelerate to that high velocity is if Boingo disconnected the main gearbox.
* AvoidTheDreadedGRating: A writer for Focus on the Family's ''Plugged In'' magazine said the film could have squeaked by with a "G" rating. Let me reiterate that: ''[[MoralGuardians Focus on the Family]]'' said the content rating on a movie was ''too strict''.
** Well there is a plot by a rabbit about cornering a market, and there's StuffBlowingUp in spectacular fashion (a tram car and a wooden trestle).
* AwesomeButImpractical: We never get to see what the mine carts do, other than move Red's and the Wolf's stories along and give them another near-encounter. It appears that this must be some kind of mine with tracks clearly built by Imagineers who had been on [[DisneyThemeParks Big Thunder Mountain Railroad]] too much, but it's not quite clear what the carts carry because they are never seen loaded (possibly gold). And if the carts are gravity powered, then it's never explained why they have a water tower installed, or an emergency ladder in the middle of a track going down into a batcave.
* BadassGrandma: Granny. She fights in ''cage matches'', fer cryin' out loud.
** And she was the ''champion''!
* BadBadActing: Kirk's attempt to pose as Dolph to fool Boingo fails spectacularly, despite him and the Wolf having apparently rehearsed this on the way up.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Who would ever suspect [[spoiler:little Boingo]]?
* BigEater: The Three Little Officer Pigs, who are caught eating forensic evidence when Grizzly arrives. When Flippers arrives, he says:
-->'''Nicky Flippers:''' Say, Tommy, you losing weight?
-->'''Tommy:''' Uh, no.
-->'''Nicky Flippers:''' Didn't think so.
* BlatantLies:
-->'''Granny:''' If there's two things I don't do, is lie, and play extreme sports.
** Throughout the Wolf's [[PaperThinDisguise poor attempt to impersonate Granny]], including such gems like this:
--->'''Red Puckett:''' And what big ''ears'' you have!\\
'''The Wolf:''' ''[getting irritated]'' All the better to hear your... ''many'' criticisms. Old people just have big ears, dear.
* BilingualBonus: When [[spoiler:Boingo]] is isuing orders to his henchmen, he orders Dolph to tie up Red, Lisa to hold Granny's recipe book, Vincent to grab Kirk's truck. He tells Keith:
-->[[YouGetMeCoffee Darnit, change your name]]! Please? That's not scary! And I'm embarrassed to say it. "Boris." Try that. ''(Keith storms off)'' Keith, you know. Oh, "[[SarcasmMode watch out for Keith!]]"
** Besides the fact that Andy Dick [[ThrowItIn ad-libbed this line]], the bonus comes from the fact that the alternate name and the original name mean basically the same thing in different languages: "Keith" is Scottish-Gaelic for "from the battlefield", while "Boris" is Slavic for "battler" or "warrior".
** When Kirk tells Jimmy at the audition that he wants to be a member of the Happy Yodelers, we see a poster that reads, in Swedish, "Tonite only, Sporthalen - Eskiltuna, Tisdag 29 oktober 19.00".
* BlandNameProduct: Some characters are seen drinking "Forest Dew". Obviously because Mountain Dew wouldn't pay royalties.
* BlindingCameraFlash: Happens accidentally. Specifically, one of the photos Twitchy takes during Red's first encounter with the Wolf (not intentionally, as Red's fall from the tram car had caused Twitchy to end up accidentally swallowing his camera).
* BoundAndGagged: First Granny (She wound up [[spoiler:tangled in her glider]] when the parasol and ripcord got caught in the ceiling fan) and later Red (as a prisoner [[spoiler:of Boingo.]])
* BrickJoke: As the four protagonists tell their day's accounts, they are essentially a long succession of these. A small detail in one character's story that seems bizarre or out-of-place will be explained when another character's story is told.
** For instance, in the entire mine cart sequence, everything about Red's ride is what you would expect... except for the snow slide coming over the edge of the shelf that comes close to collecting her cart. It was Granny using explosive charges to escape from the Bandit's henchmen in a ski race on the upper mountain.
** The porcupine with the ChronicallyCrashedCar is a BrickJoke.
** Also, the fisherman on the river bank that the Wolf floats by after Red tricks him into falling into the water. He's obviously not had much success. When the tram car lands in the river and blows up after Granny releases the grip, dozens of disturbed fish flock up on the shore around him. Hillariously, he doesn't even move from his position despite the enormous fireball that is produced.
* BringIt: During the entire fight in the tramway terminal, [[spoiler:Boingo]] does the "bring it" gesture [[spoiler: with his ''ear''.]]
** Of course, there's also Granny's line at the end: "Bring it, honey."
*** Which is a CallBack to her saying it to [[TheAhnold Dolph]] before the ski race.
---->'''Dolph:''' You be careful, Granny Puckett. Old people get hurt on these slopes.\\
'''Granny Puckett:''' Bring it, honey.
* BrokenPedestal: Red invokes this trope when Granny's secret extreme sports life is revealed:
-->'''Granny Puckett:''' Honey, don't look at your granny like that.
-->'''Red Puckett:''' I'm sorry, I thought you were Triple G! Or are you the Bandit?
-->''[beat]''
-->'''Det. Bill Stork:''' [[LampshadeHanging Awkward!]]
-->''[awkwardly side slips his way out of the room]''
-->'''Granny Puckett:''' You're being ridiculous, Red.
-->'''Red Puckett:''' ''I'm'' being ridiculous?! You're off living... ''La Vida Loca'', risking your life for some dumb thrills! And I'm supposed to stay home and be your happy little delivery girl?!
-->'''Tommy:''' [[UncomfortableElevatorMoment I have a]]...
-->'''Nicky Flippers:''' Coffee break, anyone?
-->'''Chief Grizzly:''' Uh, yeah.
-->'''Det. Bill Stork:''' Who's got my keys?
-->'''Raccoon Jerry:''' You think Granny would mind if I went through her garbage?
-->'''Chief Grizzly:''' Excuse us.
-->''[Everyone except Red and Granny files out of the room]''
-->'''Granny Puckett:''' I thought you were happy.
-->'''Red Puckett:''' Open your eyes. I've never even been outside of the forest. Don't you think I'd want more than that?
-->'''Granny Puckett:''' Of course you do. You're a Puckett.
-->'''Red Puckett:''' ''[sighs]'' I don't know what that means anymore.
* CaffeineBulletTime: used by Twitchy at one point.
* CassandraTruth: When Red calls Granny from Japeth's shack:
-->'''Red Puckett:''' Granny?
-->'''Granny Puckett:''' Huh? What's that? Who's there?
-->'''Red Puckett:''' It's Red. I'm on my way to come see you-
-->'''Granny Puckett:''' Oh my, dearie, I-I'm not prepared! I need to... put down fresh doilies! Aah! ''[slips on something]''
-->'''Red Puckett:''' Granny! Granny! What's wrong?
-->'''Granny Puckett:''' Gotta go, munchkin. Bonasi! ''[the line is disconnected]''
-->'''Red Puckett:''' Oh no!
-->''[hangs up and turns to Japeth, wild-eyed]''
-->'''Red Puckett:''' Mr. Goat! My granny's in trouble! I've got to find a way around the mountain, fast!
-->'''Japeth:''' ''[singing]'' Well you came to the right goat! ''[pops off his rocking horns]'
-->'''Red Puckett:''' Oh, good. More singing.
** Granny's story shows that this call happens during her ski race, and she is busy trying to deal with the Bandit's henchmen skiers. This means that Red is right when she fears Granny is in grave danger, though she doesn't know that that's true.
* CasualDangerDialogue: Or lyrics, for that matter. During Red's mine cart ride, when the avalanche hits, Japeth goes "Ohhhhh an avalanche is coming and I do not feel prepared / It's running like a mountain lion, I must say that I'm scared / But if not for the witch's spell you'd hear just how I scream / But since I'm only singing I'll just yodel 'til we're creamed!"
* ChekhovsGun: Coffee for Twitchy causes him to speed around like a rocket.
** When the Wolf is doing surveillance on the tram car from the ground with a radar gun and headset, while he's scanning, a couple bars of the yodeling chorus from the "Schnitzel Song" can heard for a brief second. You hear the rest once Kirk's story is told.
* ChekhovsGunman: [[spoiler:Boingo]] is the bandit. The only clue is that [[spoiler:all four main characters encounter him during their day.]]
** [[spoiler:FridgeBrilliance present: you will probably not be suspicious of Boingo when he appears during Red's story, as that's the first time you'll see im. Once you see him show up at Kirk's truck RIGHT after the truck has been broken into (apparently in between his two scenes with Red because he's still holding the carrot crumpet she gave him during the encounter on the bike), you know something's fishy. That he tries encouraging Kirk by saying that one day, "somebody will open up a great big goody shop, and we can all work for that little guy," kinda gives an idea of what his plans are.]]
** [[spoiler:Furthermore, you might figure out he's up to no good when he tells the Wolf and Twitchy to take a shortcut: "You go over the woods and through the river.... No, you don't wanna go through the river. You'll get all wet." Note that he takes "Over the river and through the woods to grandmother's house," and switches the first two nouns.]]
** A minor case involves the hummingbird chorus in "Great Big World" that carries Red and her bike across a river. The birds later show up when Red hands her cloak over to them and they serve to trick the Wolf into falling off a cliff.
* ChronicallyCrashedCar: There's a blue sports car with a rear wing attachment that keeps being wrecked by the main characters' actions.
** First, it's seen being driven by a duck during the treehouse scene. Red throws up her arms in exasperation and unwittingly tosses her magazine away. It falls, and lands on the car's windshield, which startles him enough that he drives into a tree (the impact is not shown as the image cuts back to Red right before the impact, but we do hear tires, the crash, and see a tree shaking in the background, followed by the driver yelling out that he is okay, and Red shooting an AsideGlance at the camera).
** The second and third times, it's driven by a porcupine and both times the impact is caused by Kirk. It's first crushed by a tree during Kirk's tree chopping spree. At the end, as the bad guys are being taken away, the Wolf and Kirk are driving Kirk's converted truck down the hill. When they arrive at the bottom:
--->'''Kirk:''' Hello, everybody! Look, we've got the book! ''(The truck hits a tree, which is uprooted and crushes the porcupine's car again)''
* CompletelyMissingThePoint: After "Top of the Woods", there's:
-->'''Granny Puckett:''' Sweet tea and cookies! We've got to do something.
-->'''The Wolf:''' I know. The song was catchy, but the choreography was terrible.
** And:
--->'''Chief Ted Grizzly:''' Take 'em downtown, boys!
-->'''Det. Bill Stork:''' D'ah, it's the woods, chief. We don't have a downtown.\\
'''Chief Ted Grizzly:''' You know what I mean! Just book 'em!
** When [[spoiler:Boingo]] and Dolph get off the tram, Dolph makes it clear to [[spoiler:Boingo]] that they need to worry about Granny, but [[spoiler:Boingo]] doesn't seem to get the point.
** When Kirk is about to be interviewed:
--->'''Chief Grizzly:''' This guy's a loon.\\
'''Bill Stork:''' Watch it, chief, my mama's half-loon.
* ConcealingCanvas: When Red retrieves Granny's recipe book, it's shown to be locked up in a safe that is hidden behind a family portrait of Red's grandfather.
* CoolOldLady: Think Vin Diesel from Triple X, she even uses a few signature moves from that movie in the ski race.
** You mean like the 3 'G's tattooed on her neck, and that whole bit of dialog?
* CrazyPrepared: Japeth the mountain goat, which he even sings about. After the mine cart he and Red are in goes airborne, he escapes with a pair of horns fitted with helicopter rotors. Red is rather shocked when she sees him fly away with this set.
** In the ski race, Granny has dynamite charges ready to set off at a moment's notice, for any enemy ski teams.
** Red carries a can of "Wolf-Away", which comes handy if you should have a confrontation with a wolf in the woods.
* CreatorCameo: Cory Edwards plays Twitchy. His voice was then digitally sped up to create Twitchy's "normal" voice, but when the Lassie scene happens and Twitchy speaks very quickly into a tapedeck, Twitchy's audio is slowed down to quarter-speed to create Edwards' normal voice.
* CursedWithAwesome: Japeth says he can't speak, only sing. Possibly the [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome best song]] in the whole film.
** BlatantLies, as proven by the dialogue that occurs when Red meets Japeth on his porch:
--->'''Red Puckett:''' I'm looking for Granny Puckett's house? \\
'''Japeth the Goat:''' ''[singing]'' Graaaaaaaanneeee Puckeeeet... \\
'''Red Puckett:''' Could you stop singing for one moment? \\
'''Japeth the Goat:''' ''[singing]'' No I can't, I wish I could, but a mountain witch done put a spell on me, 37 years agoooooooo, and now I gotta sing every thing I saaaaaaaaayyyyyy... \\
'''Red Puckett:''' [[DeadpanSnarker Everything]]? \\
'''Japeth the Goat:''' ''[speaking]'' That's right. \\
'''Red Puckett:''' You just talked! Just now! \\
'''Japeth the Goat:''' Oh, did I? ''[singing]'' Did I? Dididididodadidididoooo... \\
''[Red gives a pissed off AsideGlance to the camera]''
* CutawayGag: Red's first conversation with Flippers contains one:
-->'''Nicky Flippers:''' What's your name?
-->'''Red Puckett:''' Red.
-->'''Nicky Flippers:''' And why do they call you that?
-->'''Red Puckett:''' Why do they call ''you'' "Flippers"?
-->''[Cuts to Flippers on the dance floor at a disco club in a flashy white suit. As the crowd chants "Go Flippers!" in the background, he does a perfect backflip and lands in a splitz]''
-->'''Nicky Flippers:''' Uh, [[BlatantLies no reason]]. ''[scratches his tie like an unconscious habit]''
** And when Flippers starts to interview Granny, and she is asked if she's been stealing from anyone, she says, "Oh no, Mr. Flippers. The only crime I've ever committed is make my goodies unlawfully delicious." Cuts to Tommy holding a bag that says ''Granny Puckett's Goodies - [[ExactWords Unlawfully Delicious]]!''
** At the bar:
--->'''The Wolf:''' So, how 'bout that new delivery system? \\
'''Red Puckett:''' Well, it beats riding a bike, that's for sure. \\
''[Cuts to Japeth riding a mine cart filled with food]'' \\
'''Japeth:''' ''[singing]'' Oh I've got horns to hold the muffins, and I've got horns to hold the pies....
* DeadpanSnarker: Red and the Wolf have moments. The CutawayGag quote is one, for right after it:
-->'''Red Puckett:''' They call me "Red" [[CaptainObvious because of this red hood I wear]].
-->'''Nicky Flippers:''' What about when you're not wearing it? ''(beat)''
-->'''Red Puckett:''' ''(quietly)'' I usually wear it.
** When Red hangs up after using Japeth's shack phone to call Granny, only to get disconnected, she pleads for Japeth to help her:
-->'''Red Puckett:''' Mr. Goat, my granny's in trouble! I've got to find a way around the mountain, fast!
-->'''Japeth:''' ''[singing]'' Well you came to the right goat! ''(pops off his rocking horns)''
-->'''Red Puckett:''' Oh, good. [[SarcasmMode More singing]].
** When the Wolf watches Red's fall from the tram car:
-->'''The Wolf:''' ''[into tape recorder]'' Ouch.
* DeerInTheHeadlights: Kirk freezes up in fear when the giant tree is falling towards him.
* DeusExMachina: The can of "Wolf-Away" pepper spray that Red uses in her first encounter with the Wolf counts. As does Granny's sudden acquisition of explosive charges of the kind that ski patrollers use to set off controlled slides on avalanche prone ski slopes (bowls and double-black trails) during the ski race.
* TheDogWasTheMastermind: The mastermind turns out to be [[spoiler:the bunny rabbit.]]
* DontExplainTheJoke:
-->'''[[spoiler:Boingo]]''': I'm gonna need a lot of real estate down the mountain, so I've gotta blow the competition away. Oh, and that's not a metaphor. We've literally got to ''blow'' them away. OK?
-->'''Red Puckett:''' [[DeadpanSnarker Yeah, I got it.]]
* DynamiteCandle: Twitchy pulls out a stick of dynamite when the mine cart enters a tunnel. "Dee-na-mee-tay. Hmm, must be Italian." (''AChristmasStory'' ShoutOut?)
* EasterEgg: Wolf and Twitchy end up in a cave populated with bats, due to them making the mistake of trusting Boingo to find a shortcut to Granny's place. It doesn't help that Boingo had scribbled illegible directions and a map on to the side of a brightly colored [[VisualPun Easter Egg]].
* EmbarrassingTattoo: Sort of. Granny's got a tattoo of three G's on the back of her neck. [[VinDiesel Flippers says that is appropriate because she already has three strikes against her]].
* EpicFail: The Wolf's PaperThinDisguise in impersonating Granny. Red is not fooled for even a second.
* EverybodyWasKungFuFighting: And handled '''much''' less clunkily than the way it was handled in the {{Shrek}} franchise; the prize for the most impressive and spectacular martial artists in the film goes to [[spoiler:Boingo, who utilizes his ''ears'' as the primary weapon of his highly effective personal style of martial arts]]. Red's method is also quite awesome, at least in the Wolf's story where she beats him up.
* EverythingsNuttierWithSquirrels: Twitchy, natch.
* EvilLaugh: [[spoiler:Boingo]].
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: Granny's products are "Unlawfully Delicious", and that's even written on the packaging.
* ExactWords: Boingo tells the Wolf and Twitchy that he knows a shortcut to Granny's house. It involves going "Over the woods and through the river" - note that he doesn't falter when switching the two nouns.
* FamilyFriendlyFirearms: During the ski race / battle, the combatants fire snowballs at each other.
* FauxAffablyEvil: [[spoiler:Boingo, who generally talks in a joyful and non-menacing tone, cracks jokes, but does nothing to hide just how monstrous he really is.]]
* FeatherFingers: Boingo's ears.
* {{Foreshadowing}} / FreezeFrameBonus: There are tons of these in the movie that would be overlooked until another character's point of view is told.
** In the second part of the confrontation between Red and the Wolf, Red pulls out a mace can and sprays it in the Wolf's eyes. It's called "[[MeaningfulName Wolf Away Spray]]".
** If you look carefully during Red's mine cart ride with Japeth, when they pop out of the tunnel, you see the drop they go down with a POV shot. If you freeze it about midway down the drop, you will see that the Wolf and Twitchy are in the mine cart that goes by on the track Red's cart goes under. When the Wolf gets to this point in the story, if you freeze when the Wolf says "Now THIS is a shortcut!" you can see Red and Japeth dropping in the background, and can hear Red's scream. At normal speed, you only hear the scream and Red appears as a blur for less than a second. You can even pick up a tiny bit of Japeth's yodeling if you've got a good ear.
** Another example in the mine cart sequences: Red's version of the story only tells us that she and Japeth are launched airborne as the track at the end of the tunnel has collapsed. The Wolf's story reveals that the drop after that tunnel had been blown up accidentally when the Wolf was hurrying to get rid of some lit sticks of dynamite in his cart. Likewise, the cause of the avalanche in the sequence that happens before Red and Japeth enter the tunnel is revealed to have been Granny setting off explosive charges to escape from the Bandit's henchmen.
** When Red is looking at the map of the mine routes in Japeth's shack, if you freeze it, you'll see places with names like Puckett Grove, Sam Hill, Kanbar Kanyon, Murphy's Low, Boulderdash, the Blue Yonder, Beehive, and Old Man's Cave (this last one is kind of hard to tell because it's located at a spot where Red's head obscures the text). Also there is a marker for a water tower and a misspelled "You are here" point marker.
*** Freeze frames are necessary to get all of the Swiss Army Horns that Japeth uses during "Be Prepared". You'll notice that one set of his antlers is apparently a campfire set with hot dogs and s'mores on the ends, for instance. Even a Mohawk style is saying a lot.
** A nice one in Red's story when the doors open and she falls from the tram car. [[spoiler:If you watch it frame by frame, you'll see that Boingo makes a grab for Red's basket, not her, right as she grabs it before going over, and has an angry expression as opposed to a concerned one. This appears to suggest that he knew Granny's book was in the basket, and was intending on snatching it, then pushing Red out, but she falls a couple seconds too soon.]]
** When the storybook is flipping back to begin each character's story, you might notice snippets of text from the Brothers Grimm version of the original fairy tale.
** Audio version: when the Wolf pulls out his radar gun to start listening in on activity in the tram, he aims it to make sure it's working. When he is holding it out, it picks up some interesting things on his headset. In order: a goat bleating, frogs croaking, a couple bars of the yodeling chorus to the "Schnitzel Song", and then a conversation between two caterpillars on a leaf underneath the Wolf.
** When the picture of Red in her martial arts uniform is seen during the interruption of her beating up the Wolf in the Wolf's retelling, you'll see that the text on the bottom reads "Red Puckett: Forest Regional Karate Champion".
** The taxicab the Wolf uses to overtake Red has a Paul's Bunion Cream advertisement on the roof.
** In TheReveal that [[spoiler:Boingo]] is the Bandit, his signing of Granny's autograph prior to the ski race is revisited. Interesting entries can be seen on his checklist, including: "Take Down Muffin Man," "Ruin Red," "Send Wolf on wild goose chase," "Pay off ski team," and "Call Mom".
** When the notary is sharpening his pencil prior to Red telling her story, you can see he's already written some summary notes in his notepad, including "Red - Related to Granny - Establish timeline for Wolf - check references."
** When Red is reading the magazine ''Far Away Places'' in the treehouse, certain shots will show text about a number of foreign places like China and Scotland. She is looking at a cartoon of a rhino and zebra having tea (this one's hard to tell as the image is partially out-of-frame).
** When Boingo shows his apocalypse slideshow to Red, you might notice that his "Boingoland" territory has an airport in it, an amusement park, all of it extends down from the tramway terminal, and his acquired real estate also overlaps with {{Smallville}}. (FridgeLogic: This doesn't seem to make sense when you consider that the movie happens in mountainous terrain and Smallville is in very flat Kansas).
** A blink-and-you'll-miss-it type: when Twitchy is repairing his camera after accidentally swallowing it, you see that he uses a small can of a hydrogen peroxide solution to clean the individual parts. Right before we cut to the Wolf's interview with Red, he sprays a bit of the solution under his armpit like deodorant.
* FracturedFairyTale: This film takes LittleRedRidingHood and combines it with elements of cop shows and ''{{Rashomon}}''.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: Parodied in an interesting way. According to Flippers, the only crime Red has ever committed has been flying a swarm of hummingbirds over a river without a license. The Wolf is seen observing it, and comments, "Whoa! Creepy!"
** Red would be a full version of this trope if not for the fact that in the Wolf's story, there's a scene where she viciously beats him up.
* FrogsAndToads: Inspector Nicky Flippers.
* FourLinesAllWaiting: Averted. Each character's story is told individually so that there is no juggling back and forth.
* FunnyBackgroundEvent:
** When Red is reading the travel magazine in the treehouse, she throws it away in frustration. It lands on the windshield of a passing car driven by a non-human driver, who promptly loses control. The scene cuts back to a close-up of Red's face as we hear screeching tires and an OffscreenCrash (accompanied by a tree just to Red's right from our perspective shaking). She [[AsideGlance looks at the camera and lifts an eyebrow]], then turns and continues talking with a woodpecker as if nothing had happened.
** Doubles as a MeaningfulBackgroundEvent: When the Wolf and Twitchy apply the emergency brake on their mine cart after accidentally blowing up the trestle, they come to a stop at the bottom of the hill. As they are coming to their senses, the driverless cart behind them can be heard approaching the tunnel exit. The cart then comes out of the tunnel and flies off the end of the destroyed track and over the Wolf and Twitchy's stopped cart at the bottom, accompanied with a loud scream, which establishes to the viewers that it is the cart Red is riding in. They dismiss the resulting sound.
* FurryConfusion: Subverted: Flippers seems to walk a non-anthropomorphic dog into the crime scene. It's actually their notary.
** GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Then what is he doing on a ''leash''? Kinky, Nicky. Kinky...
* FurryFandom: There's a minor human character, the "Sandwich Man", who wears a fursuit. He's the guy the Wolf is interviewing at the start of his story, and briefly appears as the one human that Red passes by during "Great Big World". The Wolf even refers to him as "my furry friend."
** And, unusually for a mainstream work, he is never mentioned as being the slightest bit weird. Of course, [[LionsAndTigersAndHumansOhMy considering the setting they're in...]]
** Furries aren't widely known outside the internet or CSIMiami, so crowbarring in a joke about them would be a bit redundant.
* GenreSavvy: Red Puckett. She takes the threatening note the vandal throws through Granny's store's window seriously, and acts on her own judgment rather than what others tell her to do. Also, right before she falls out of the tram, Red correctly guesses what the Bandit's plan is [[spoiler:although not realizing that the Bandit happens to be Boingo, the only other person in the car with her]]. And unlike other versions of the tale, she fails to fall for the Wolf's PaperThinDisguise when he's impersonating Granny (the first thing she says upon seeing him is, "What? Who are you?").
** The Wolf suggests to [[spoiler:Boingo]] that his [[SupervillainLair tramway terminal]] needs to be outfitted with a DeathRay because it's standard equipment in a cave lair. This one is a ShoutOut to ''{{Goldfinger}}''.
* GilliganCut: Red says the new delivery system beats "riding a bike". Cuts to Japeth singing while riding a mine cart with customized horns to hold his products.
* GoshDangItToHeck: "What the schnitzel?" is what Kirk says when he finds his truck vandalized.
* GravityIsAHarshMistress: When the Wolf grabs Red's cape and finds it's empty, the camera pulls back to show him frozen in mid-air just past the edge of a cliff. He says "[[OhCrap OK, not cool]]", then falls straight down into the water below.
* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal: Wolf and Twitchy.
* HairRaisingHare: Boingo.
* HeliCritter: This is how Japeth survives the mine cart accident - with horns fitted with helicopter blades. When he flies by Red, who is using her cape as an improvised parachute, she looks at him in disbelief with a FlatWhat
* HowWeGotHere: The premise of the first half of the movie is everyone retelling their stories.
* IceCreamKoan: Flippers.
-->'''Chief:''' Boy, you are just ''full'' of those, aren't ya.
* IntrepidReporter: The Wolf.
* IKnewIt: The Wolf says "I knew it! [[spoiler:Never trust a bunny]]!" when Flippers makes TheReveal that [[spoiler:Boingo]] has to be the culprit. Considering that earlier, Boingo basically tricks the Wolf and Twitchy into [[spoiler:going on a long out-of-the-way route]], it's clear he is getting suspicious.
** He also says it when a conversation he overhears between Red and Boingo over his radar gun seems to confirm his suspicion that Red works for the Bandit. (Note that Red was actually expressing concern to Boingo about the Bandit's possible plan and protecting Granny's recipe book, but the Wolf was getting static that drowned out parts of the conversation)
* IncrediblyLamePun: The Wolf is a journalist with a weekly column in ''The Once Upon a Times''.
** The magazine Red is reading in the treehouse is called ''Far Away Places''.
** When Flippers says he wants to talk to Kirk, Stork says "Maybe you should AXE him yourself!" then starts laughing uncontrollably at the pun until he sees Grizzly giving him the DeathGlare, at which point he sobers up and says "I'll bring him in."
* InspectorLestrade: Grizzly is this.
-->'''Chief Grizzly:''' ''[eying the four detainees]'' This looks pretty open and shut. Little miss rosy-capes (Red) making covert deliveries to the goodie-tycoon (Granny), Wolfie tries to eat 'em both, then crazy flannel-pants with the axe here (Kirk) busts in, swinging vigilante-style. Take 'em downtown, boys!
-->'''Det. Bill Stork:''' D'ah, it's the woods, chief. We don't have a downtown.
-->'''Chief Grizzly:''' You know what I mean! Just book 'em!
-->'''Nicky Flippers:''' Not so fast, Grizzly. ''[enters]'' That's the problem with you bears: always growling up the wrong tree.
** Also, when everyone is being interviewed after the villains are captured, while Red and Granny try to put credit for saving the day on each other, Grizzly tries to take all the credit.
* IWantSong: Red's story opens with her singing the song "Great Big World".
* ImplausibleBoardingSkills: Granny surfs down the tram cable on a muffin tin. Considering that the rope gauge on many real chairlifts and gondolas is around 4.8 meters, muffin tins would not fit on real cables.
* ImplausibleDeniability: Japeth [[BlatantLies can only sing everything he says]]:
-->'''Red Puckett:''' ''[unimpressed]'' Everything?
-->'''Japeth:''' ''[speaking]'' That's right.
-->'''Red Puckett:''' You just talked! Just now!
* IronicEcho: Red Puckett's story has this. During a phone call she makes to Granny:
-->'''Granny Puckett:''' A trip up the mountain is too dangerous for a little girl.
-->'''Red Puckett:''' I'm not so little anymore!
** In the very next scene, when Red is in the treehouse:
-->'''Woodpecker:''' Are you going somewhere far away?
-->'''Red Puckett:''' No, the world is too dangerous for me! ''[Throws her arms up in the air, exasperated, and unwittingly tosses her magazine... onto a passing car's windshield]''
** When Kirk is on the phone with Jimmy, Jimmy tells him "Don't ''act'' like a woodsman, ''be'' a woodsman." Later, when the Wolf and Kirk are about to infiltrate Boingo's hideout, the Wolf tells a disguised Kirk, "Don't ''act'' like an evil henchman; ''be'' an evil henchman."
** When the Wolf and Twitchy make the mistake of following Boingo's directions and find themselves in the cave, the Wolf casually says, "Never trust a bunny with directions, Twitchy." Later, when Flippers reveals that Boingo is the Bandit, the Wolf says, "I knew it! Never trust a bunny!"
* IronicEchoCut: The second variant of this happens in Red's story when Red stops her bike for a family leaving their shut down business.
-->'''Red Puckett:''' ''[voiceover]'' With the Goodie Bandit on the loose, recipes were becoming an endangered species. I decided to call Granny. If anyone would know what to do, she would.
-->''[Cuts to Granny sewing while on the phone]''
-->'''Granny Puckett:''' I don't know what to do. I'm just a tired old lady.
* JitterCam: Used in a justifiable way during Red's mine cart ride. Is not used in the Wolf's trip over the same track, though.
* JiveTurkey: ''Granny'', hilariously enough, during the ski race.
* JumpScare: When Red is fleeing from the Wolf in her retelling. She runs for a short time, and thinks she is home free. Then she turns, and the Wolf appears from behind a tree, accompanied with the small sound of bats.
* KindaBusyHere: When Red calls from Japeth's shack, Granny is... rather busy. Revealed to be the result of talking-while-alpine-skiing - naturally, something you don't want to do when your team's being murdered. Nor something you want to do in real life, as alpine skiing with poles in each hand requires a lot of simultaneous hand and eye coordination.
* LaserGuidedKarma: Happily Ever After indeed: Red gets her wish to travel the world. Wolf gets his wish to do undercover work. Granny gets her wish to perform hair-raising stunts. Plus,[[spoiler: Boingo and his henchmen are struck by this at the end.]]
* LionsAndTigersAndHumansOhMy: Invoked.
* LittleRedFightingHood: Red Puckett is the Forest Regional Karate Champion.
* LyricalDissonance: [[spoiler:Boingo]]'s VillainSong "Top of the Woods". [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U6Nhp_xm6ms He is singing about his plans to cause mass destruction and corner the goody market...]] to a rather catchy showtune ([[ComicallyMissingThePoint although the choreography is terrible]]).
* MacGuffin: The book of recipes.
* MeaningfulName: Flippers apparently is called this because of a gig he once did at a disco club. For Red:
-->'''Red Puckett:''' They call me "Red" because of this red hood I wear.
-->'''Nicky Flippers:''' What about when you're not wearing it? ''(beat)''
-->'''Red Puckett:''' ''(quietly)'' I usually wear it.
** Not only is Red's hooded cape red, but in certain shots, her hair appears red because of the angle of the lighting (this is very noticeable in close-ups of her face in the treehouse scene).
** Boingo obviously gets his name from the springy sound he has in his hop.
* MediaScrum: Woodland critter news networks. Especially when they ask Grizzly questions like "Is the house made of gingerbread?" and "Do bears eat gingerbread?"
* MediumAwareness: When Jimmy hangs up the call on Kirk's car phone, he says, "I gotta be in a circle wipe across town but I'll see you at 10:00." That's exactly what he appears in for that very conversation. Note that all phone calls in the movie use circle-wipes (Red's first call to Granny from the payphone is shown from both characters' perspectives, as is the call Red makes to Granny's cell phone from Japeth's shack from Red's perspective only).
** In the original version of ''Top of the Woods'', [[spoiler:Boingo]] sings, "Except there won't be no rescue before the credits roll!"
** In "Great Big World", it's not quite clear whether Red is directing the song at the audience or at the police who are interviewing her.
* MethodActing: Kirk is an out-of-work actor trying to land a role, which is why he was trying to fell a large redwood tree in the first place. Unfortunately, he first acts TooIncompetentToOperateABlanket with an axe.
** See IronicEcho
* MightyLumberjack: Invoked with with Kirk, an actor playing a burly [[GermanicEfficiency German]] [[AnAxeToGrind axeman]] in foot cream commercials.
* MineCartMadness / RollercoasterMine: Japeth's system of mine carts. Later harnessed for speedy pastry delivery (though it's not explained if it caught on quickly, given that the destroyed part of track would need to be rebuilt).
* MisplacedNamesPoster:
** [[http://www.firetheimagination.ca/images/productImages/orig/Hoodwinked.jpg The DVD cover.]]
** In the Widescreen DVD cover, at least, to some extent. Luckily, a few of the important nametags are held by the correct person, but the nametag for Xzibit as Chief Grizzly is held up by Dolph, one of the skiers.
* MisplacedWildlife: Minor example, but two of Granny's teammates at the ski race are 2-Tone (a penguin) and P-Biggie (a polar bear), which is jarring considering that the movie takes place in a place similar to the Rocky Mountains. Those two are from opposite ends of the world.
* MissionImpossibleCableDrop: [[spoiler:Granny. With a drop of hairspray instead of sweat]]. Technically not a "cable drop", but an obvious shout-out to the first SpiderMan movie (where it was a drop of blood).
** A ''MissionImpossibleII'' ShoutOut happens in a shot of Granny hanging from a rock ledge.
* MistakenConfession: The Wolf suspects that Red is smuggling stuff for Granny when he listens in to her conversation with Boingo from the ground with a radar gun. He hears most of what she says after Boingo asks her if she delivers over here, but he doesn't hear the whole thing because parts of what she says are drowned out by static.
** This is what is said:
-->'''Boingo:''' Look at me, I'm fuzzy. Hey, you deliver up this far?
-->'''Red Puckett:''' Well, not usually. But I was thinking about what you told me earlier - about the Muffin Man. I need to protect Granny's recipes from that bandit's evil plan. They're gonna shut down everyone in the forest if we're not careful.
** Because the Wolf's radar gets static, all he hears is this:
-->'''Boingo:''' Hey, you deliver up this far?
-->'''Red Puckett:''' ''[unintelligble due to static]'' But I was thinking of ''[static]'' the Muffin Man ''[static]'' Granny's recipes ''[static]'' an evil plan ''[static]'' to shut down everyone in the forest.
-->'''The Wolf:''' ''[lowers his radar gun and turns it off]'' [[IKnewIt I knew it]]. She's working for the old lady.
* MoodSwinger: [[spoiler:Boingo the rabbit]]. Apparently, the producers couldn't decide whether "Verge of Tears" or "[[EvilLaugh Maniacal Cackling]]" was better, so they used both, to comedic effect.
-->'''[[spoiler:Boingo]]:''' Oh, I just '''love''' my job!
* MoodWhiplash: As Red is reminiscing about when she was younger in her OOCIsSeriousBusiness moment, she finds a medal in a flashback:
-->'''Red Puckett:''' Huh, what's this?\\
'''Granny Puckett:''' Oh, it says "World's Greatest Grandma."\\
'''Red Puckett:''' Grandma, I can read. It says "[[spoiler:Battle of the Iron Cage Gladiators]]." ''(cue black-and-white photos of Granny in a [[spoiler:cage match]])''
** At the end of "Be Prepared", we go from Japeth's wacky song while being chased by an avalanche to the mine cart being launched airborne. After Red turns her cloak into an improvised parachute, she comes out of the clouds as dramatic music plays in the background. The mood turns comedic when we see Japeth fly past Red, playing his banjo and ''flying'' with a set of helicopter horns and saying "[[CrazyPrepared I WAS PREPARED!]]" before lifting up and away.
** Arguably, some MoodDissonance when the Wolf and Twitchy accidentally ignite all the dynamite in their mine cart.
* MotorMouth: Twitchy.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Said by The Wolf after [[spoiler:giving Twitchy some coffee.]]
-->'''Granny:''' Now the rest is up to us.
-->'''Kirk:''' Can I have coffee?
* NamesTheSame: Do not confuse Japeth's number "Be Prepared" with Scar's VillainSong in ''TheLionKing''.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: [[spoiler:Boingo]] issues orders to his henchmen:
-->'''[[spoiler:Boingo]]:''' Vincent, get the truck! And Keith!... [[YouGetMeCoffee Darnit, change your name]]! Please? That's not scary! And I'm embarrassed to say it. "Boris." Try that. ''(Keith storms off)'' Keith, you know. Oh... "[[SarcasmMode watch out for Keith!]]"
** What makes it funnier is that particular moment wasn't supposed to have a joke at all. It was ad-libbed by Andy Dick, who ''did'' think "Keith" was a stupid name for an evil accomplice.
** Also somewhat ironic. See BilingualBonus for more.
* NeverHeardThatOneBefore: When the Wolf consults Woolworth in the flock for information, Woolworth says this when he jokes about "pulling the wool over his eyes". "Ha ha, hillarious. You come up with that yourself? That's funny."
* NeverMessWithGranny: Especially not "Triple G".
* NeverTrustATrailer (Twitchy: Never-trust-a-trailer!): So as to [[TrailersAlwaysSpoil preserve the story twist]], the trailers are formatted such that they constantly portray the Wolf as a moronic, incompetent villain, instead of a very intelligent investigative journalist whose only antagonism is a case of MistakenIdentity on Red's behalf.
** The trailer also mentions by name Anthony Anderson, who has maybe a dozen lines in the whole movie as the stork detective, but doesn't name Patrick Warburton, whose role is second to Red in size.
* [[spoiler:[[NeverTrustATrope Never Trust A Bunny]]]] (Twitchy: [[spoiler: Never-trust-a-bunny!]]), especially when it comes to getting directions. Often, they lead you on routes where you could be killed if you don't make the right decision.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Twitchy mistakes a stick of dynamite for a candle. In struggling with him to get rid of it, the Wolf accidentally ignites the rest of the load sitting in the back of their cart. In trying to get rid of the explosives, they end up blowing up a section of track before they safely pull the emergency brake at the bottom of the hill. The camera then pulls back to reveal just how much track has been destroyed. Seconds later, the missing track wrecks the cart that was right behind them - which just happens to be the one Red is riding in.
** Twitchy accidentally gets the Wolf's tail caught in his camera while trying to fix it after he swallowed it, causing the Wolf to cry out in pain and unintentionally scaring Red into running. Ultimately, this allows her to escape, and ultimately is the reason for the mine cart accident and Red's encounter with Japeth.
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: Arguably, [[spoiler:Boingo]]'s incidents were kind of helpful. Him pushing Red out of the tram car gives the Wolf an opportunity to interview her in person about the thefts, for one thing. Also, though the Wolf complains about the directions Boingo gave him as being misleading, it does lead them to the coal mine and they do actually get a faster ride once they board a cart.
* NoFlowInCGI: The directors went for a StopMotion look and feel in order to justify this inevitability. This is even influenced in the characters' designs: Red only has four fingers and the likeness of a doll, and Kirk has one eye that's slightly larger than the other.
** With other objects, flow is proper. When Red's mine cart is airborne, her cape is flapping in the wind.
* NonActionGuy: The Wolf loses every fight he gets in, meaning he takes beatings from Red and from [[spoiler:Boingo]].
* NoodleIncident: Flippers remembers the Wolf from "three years ago on the Stiltskin case" when he was "snooping around for a lead on his real name". Those who know that Rumpelstiltskin was a con artist might have an easier time guessing what happened.
** Whatever happened 37 years ago that led to Japeth being cursed with the inability to talk, only sing, by a mountain witch
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Boingo arguably is this. [[BeneathSuspicion He seems like a decent rabbit]] who just happens to run into all four of the main characters on their separate journeys. Then it's revealed that this detail makes him the Bandit. When the Wolf is posing as an electrical inspector and talking to him, this dialogue occurs:
-->'''The Wolf:''' Let me level with you, you're an evil genius, right?
-->'''Boingo:''' Well, I don't know if I'd say "genius," you know. I was asked to join Mensa.
** GeniusBonus: As Mensa's website says that "potential members must score within the top 2% of any approved standardized intelligence test", Boingo has an IQ of at least 140 or higher.
* OddNameOut: See "names to run away from" above. The four guys on the ski team are Dolph, Lisa, Vincent... and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LliGvt3SMsw Keith]].
** Oh, and the officer pigs are Timmy, Tommy, and Glen.
* OffscreenCrash: The Wolf's fall into the river is like this in Red's story. We see Red hide in a tree trunk as the Wolf runs after her cloak (which is being flown by a few hummingbirds). As soon as the Wolf goes off-camera, there is a yell and a splash.
** Saying nothing of the car that drives into a tree after Red's magazine hits its windshield. We cut back to a close-up of Red's face and only hear screeching tires and a loud crash, accompanied by a tree in the distance shaking. [[SomebodyElsesProblem Red does not notice it, then continues musing as if nothing happened]].
* OffscreenTeleportation: When she arrives at the top tram terminal, Red is still hanging on to the side of the car and watching [[spoiler:Boingo]] and Dolph. They start walking away. She is not seen again until Boingo tells Dolph, "You ask yourself, 'Where do I see me in five years?'" and she replies, "How about behind bars?" at which point we see Red now standing at the bottom of the ramp, despite us not seeing her walking over from where she was hiding a moment earlier.
** Averted with the part of Red's encounter with the Wolf where she pepper-sprays him (and in the latter's story beats him up). As Red tells it, the Wolf obviously appears to have teleported. The Wolf's story shows that he does try chasing her on foot for a few moments, but [[RuleOfFunny catches a taxicab]] to overtake her.
* OhCrap:
** Red:
*** Her reaction to hearing the sound of a window being broken while up in the treehouse. She runs over and finds Granny's store has been broken into.
*** In the entire mine cart sequence, it appears Red is thinking this the whole journey. Once the avalanche hits, she turns around and sees that the cart is being chased by the snow slide into the tunnel. Her reaction is much more appropriate for the situation than Japeth's. Once inside the tunnel, Red screams preemptively as the cart speeds towards the dead ending track and goes airborne.
*** When she is bound, gagged, and wheeled on a dolly into a tram car packed with explosives.
** The Wolf:
*** When he chases Red's cape, and grabs it, to find that it's empty... prompting the camera to zoom way back to reveal that he [[GravityIsAHarshMistress is frozen in mid-air]]. He says "Oh, great. Not cool," then falls into the water below.
*** When he realizes that the candle Twitchy's just lit in the cart [[DynamiteCandle isn't actually a candle]]. "Lose the candle!"
** Kirk:
*** When he realizes the tree he is cutting down is about to fall on him. "Oh, schnitzel!" He is frozen like a DeerInTheHeadlights.
** Granny:
*** When she finds herself defenseless against the Bandit's henchmen during the ski race.
** Japeth's reaction to the avalanche in Red's mine cart ride. Since he can't scream, he goes, "Ohhhhh an avalanche is coming and I do not feel prepared / It's running like a mountain lion, I must say that I'm scared / But if not for the witch's spell you'd hear just how I scream / But since I'm only singing I'll just yodel 'til we're creamed!"
* {{Oktoberfest}}: Kirk's got a pretty thick German accent. It's kind of jarring considering that Red, the Wolf, and Granny all have American accents.
* OnlySaneMan: Red is this during the entire mine cart scene with Japeth.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: When introducing herself to Flippers, Red says she pretty much always wears her red cloak/cape thing. After her BrokenPedestal moment with Granny, she removes it. She is not seen wearing it again until when Granny uses it during the tramway rescue.
* PaperThinDisguise: The Wolf's disguises, like the one where he interviews the woodland snack shack owner with an alias name and also uses a neck brace to pretend that he burned his neck. Also the scene where the media scrum fail to recognize Red without her red cloak on, and instead charge off after a large male jogger wearing a red hoodie.
** The Wolf's attempt at impersonating Granny fails spectacularly. Despite the Granny mask and the apron and the falsetto voice, Red is GenreSavvy enough to tell the difference, but she doesn't point this out and plays along.
*** Compared to other versions of the story, this one is significantly improved.
** During the tramway terminal infiltration scene, Dolph is MuggedForDisguise, and Kirk is dressed to impersonate him - also wearing a ski mask so that [[spoiler:Boingo]] won't recognize him. Boingo gags Red and as he's finishing padlocking the door:
-->'''Kirk:''' ''[disguised as Dolph]'' Uh, Mr. Rabbit?
-->'''Boingo:''' Dolph! Where have you been?! You nimwitted Eurotrash with the, what is that, a ski mask?
-->'''Kirk:''' Uh, I, um, yah...
-->'''Boingo:''' I like that! See, ''that's'' scary. Yeah that's good.
-->'''Kirk:''' Um, b-boss...
-->'''Boingo:''' ''[exploding with impatience]'' WHAT?! Say it! Spit it out! What's goin' on?!
-->'''Kirk:''' Um... boss, uh, Paul's Bunion Cream has the soothing formula-
-->'''The Wolf:''' ''[interrupts, dressed as a utility worker]'' Hi there! What he means to say is that I'm the building inspector.
-->'''Kirk:''' Yah, yes!
-->'''The Wolf:''' I just need to tap the pipes; see if your wiring's up to par.
-->'''Boingo:''' Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Hold it, you're not... no, you can't touch anything in here.
-->'''The Wolf:''' ''[pauses]'' Let's walk.
** This second instance is played straight: for some odd reason, Boingo does not appear to notice that "Dolph" has A) a different body build and B) has suddenly grown a very long beard. Nor does he seem to recognize the Wolf in his electricians' disguise, which is strange considering that he met both Kirk and the Wolf on separate occassions over the previous day and their voices should still be fresh in his mind (as it has been no more than fourteen hours at most since those two meetings).
* PerspectiveFlip: The entire premise of the movie. Some scenes are visited twice, like Red's first encounter with the Wolf after she falls from the cable car, and use the exact same dialogue and actions, but small things are changed to show the characters' different perspectives. Both Red's and the Wolf's stories have Red pepper-spray the Wolf, but only in the Wolf's story does she beat him up. In Red's story, the shadows are longer, to reflect how frightened she is in the aftermath of her fall (with only beams of sunlight penetrating the trees, and the Wolf standing in the shadows), while the Wolf's story uses normal lighting in this scene.
* PensieveFlashback: When Red is retelling the confrontation at Granny's house to Flippers. After Flippers mistakenly asks if Kirk burst in right after the "what big facial qualities" part of the encounter, we cut right to that part of the scene. After a few seconds, flashback Red waves her hands and says, "No! No! Not yet!" All of the action then rewinds.
** A second later:
-->'''Nicky Flippers:''' And then the Axeman Cometh?
-->'''Red Puckett:''' You got it.
-->''(Inside the flashback, Kirk bursts through the window)''
-->'''Red Puckett:''' Only, he was ''screaming''.
-->'''Kirk:''' ''[weakly]'' Aargh?
-->'''Red Puckett:''' ''[sighs, exasperated]'' Like a maniac!
* PoliceLineup: The movie poster is one.
* {{Profiling}}: When Chief Grizzly insists on pinning the crime on Wolf, he sardonically says, "Ah, the Wolf did it. Talk about profiling."
* PunctuatedForEmphasis: Three.
** After the first conversation between Red and Flippers:
-->'''Chief Grizzly:''' Recipes have been going missing all over the forest, goody shops have been going out of business for months, and the trail. Ends. Here! I've got a case to close.
** When the Wolf says he can be called "Sheila:"
-->'''Chief Grizzly:''' Quit playing around, Wolf! You're looking at three to five in an old shoe with no windows! So start! Singing!
** Kirk's encounter with Boingo:
-->'''Boingo:''' Well chin up, mister! Maybe someday, someone will open up a great big goody shop, and we can all work for that. Little. Guy.
* QuirkyMinibossSquad:
* RaisedByWolves: The Wolf. (Naturally.) When he says this, [[CutawayGag a brief shot is shown of his family portrait]].
* RashomonStyle: Variation: The four accounts are all totally accurate (using literally the exact same animation from both the same and slightly different angles when they overlap), but thanks to ShownTheirWork, we still get a different impression from their limited perspectives: slightly different dialogue, different lighting (for instance, in the first encounter Red has with the Wolf, the trees cast bigger shadows in Red's story than they do in the Wolf's story), objects being positioned differently, and even different actions by the characters (Red's story does not include the part where she physically beats up the Wolf).
* RecordNeedleScratch: As a verse of the "Schnitzel Song" is about to begin while Kirk and the kids are waltzing along, cue whip-pan and needle scratch to show Kirk's truck sitting on cinder blocks and emptied of its equipment.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Just after the Wolf tries to assure a pesimistic Twitchy inside the cave, you can see a pair of big red eyes blink behind them, accompanied by a growling noise. The Wolf and Twitchy are chased into another cavern by unseen bats.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Boingo is well aware of his cuteness ''[[spoiler:and uses it to his advantage!]]'' He says that this is why running the cable car isn't a very bad job.
* RightBehindMe: During the fight in the tramway terminal, Granny uses this.
* RunningGag / BrickJoke: The blue sports car that [[ChronicallyCrashedCar keeps getting crashed]] by the main characters. First, Red wrecks one when she throws a magazine from the treehouse and it lands on the windshield, causing the driver to swerve and crash into a tree. But the main one is the porcupine driven one that has problems around trees - first by Kirk chopping one down, and later when Kirk and the Wolf, driving Kirk's converted truck, run into a tree, which gets uprooted.
** The pig who keeps reacting quizzically whenever Flippers uses food metaphors.
* RuleOfFunny: The Wolf catching a taxicab in the woods to chase Red? Yeah, pretty convenient to have a cab just ''happen'' to show up when he hails one.
** Also, Japeth's detachable horns.
** Red and Japeth's mine cart goes ''above'' the clouds after going off the dead-ending track. At what appears to be somewhere between 60-80 mph.
* SeriousBusiness: Snack shack owners are very protective of their recipe books. In fact, it's pretty clear that Granny's recipe book is treated by Red in the same that KFC treats the Colonel's Original Recipe (for the record, only two people know the complete recipe, only one knows the combination to the safe that the recipe is stored in, and a number of executives know partial segments; when it had to temporarily leave KFC headquarters in Louisville in September 2008, it had its own motorcade transport it). In the world where the movie is set, they act in a similar way to [[CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory Willy Wonka]]: these owners go out of business after their secrets are stolen (the result of espionage).
** Moreso. As several characters mention, "[[CatchPhrase Goodies make the woods go 'round.]]" It was also used in a deleted verse from Red's song "Great Big World". (The phrase itself is probably a take at the tile of a song in the original Universe of Energy at [[DisneyThemeParks Epcot]] called "Energy (You Make the World Go 'Round)")
* SkirtOverSlacks: In the first movie, Red wears a skirt over her pants. In the second movie, she ditches the skirt.
** It's kind of justified that Red is wearing long pants in the environment she is traveling in. Anyone who has lived or hiked in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, Montana or Wyoming (where the high alpine environments and vegetation are similar to the settings of the movie) knows that it's a good idea to wear pants to protect your knees from mosquito bites or avoid scraping your knees on rocks.
* ShortCutsMakeLongDelays: The Wolf and Twitchy trust Boingo with directions to Granny's house after Boingo says he knows a shortcut. Specifically, it's one that sends them into a flooded cave populated with hungry bats.
* ShoutOut:
** Lots of references are made to other classic fairy tale characters, their stories, and nursery rhymes.
*** {{Rumpelstiltskin}}: Flippers says upon seeing the Wolf, "I remember you! Three years ago on the Stiltskin case: you were snooping around for a lead on his real name." The Wolf matter-of-factly says, "I was close too. I was gonna go with Greg. Greg Stiltskin."
*** The Muffin Man: Never seen on-screen, but when Red runs into Boingo during her bike ride, he sadly states that his employer - the Muffin Man - was shut down last night by the Goodie Bandit. There's also a blink-and-you'll-miss-it shot of Boingo in the store holding a muffin tray out to a disguised Wolf.
*** Little Bo Peep: When the Wolf interviews his informant Woolworth, Woolworth describes Red as a "sweet gal, not like that Bo Peep. That brat put up an invisible fence, I tasted metal fillings for a week!"
*** "Over the River and Through the Wood": When the Wolf and Twitchy have their encounter with Boingo, Boingo says he knows a shortcut to Granny's house. He quotes this song's title, but he transposes the nouns ("Over the woods and through the river....No, you don't wanna go through the river. You'll get all wet.").
** ''{{Fletch}}''. Wolf dresses like, speaks like, uses the ''same exact disguises'' as, and even has the same ThemeSong, as Irwin Fletcher.
** ''{{XXX}}''. Grandma has 3 G's tattooed on the back of her neck, which Flippers says is appropriate because [[VinDiesel she has three strikes against her]].
** The scene where the Wolf questions Woolworth is an homage to ''Film/TheNakedGun''. It even directly lifts some of its dialogue.
** The "Use the Hood" moment when Granny appears to Red while her mine cart is flying through the sky has got to be an ''ANewHope'' reference.
*** Also in ''StarWars'' references: the scene where Twitchy and the Wolf fall into a hole while in the cave, and all you can see of Twitchy is his camera light, is similar to Luke and [=C3PO=]'s arrival on Dagobah in ''TheEmpireStrikesBack''.
** The Wolf knocking on Granny's door and identifies himself with "candygram" in the same way the Land Shark did in the SaturdayNightLive skit. Also a possible reference to the "Candygram for Mongo" scene in ''BlazingSaddles''.
** Twitchy's babbling leads the police to treat him like Lassie. "The well! Timmy's stuck in the well!"
** Twitchy reads the print on the side of a stick of dynamite: [[AChristmasStory "DEE-NA-MEE-TAY. Hmm, must be Italian]]".
** The sign over Japeth's shack (visible when Red is walking up the hill to the front porch) reads '''Pecos Mining Co.''', a clear reference to the mythical American cowboy Pecos Bill. The "Outpost 23" sign is not related.
** ''SongOfTheSouth'' is referenced in the hummingbirds who appear in "Great Big World".
** Many of the scenes in the cable car (Red's aborted ride up and also the life-and-death finale) nod to the German war film ''WhereEaglesDare''.
** Boingo says "But I'm top of the woods, now, baby!" which is a take on James Cagney's line "Made it, ma! Top of the world!" in ''WhiteHeat''.
** Red's fight with Boingo in the cable car loading dock is reminiscent of the training sequence between Neo and Morpheus in ''TheMatrix''. Especially with green monitors in the background.
** ''SaturdayNightFever'' is referenced in the concert that precedes the ski race.
* ShutUpHannibal: When Granny runs off to save Red, [[spoiler:Boingo]] tells her she doesn't trust her for keeping her double life a secret, but Granny just hit him on the head while still running.
* SlowMotionPassBy: Red glares, disgusted, at the Wolf as she leaves from her questioning and passes him, on the way to ''his'' questioning. To top it, there's an overdone dramatic soundtrack.
* SpeciesSurname: The Wolf's full name is Wolf W. Wolf. Hmm, [[SarcasmMode wonder what the middle W stands for]]. I'll bet it's also "Wolf".
** Most of the other animal characters:
*** Chief Ted Grizzly naturally has to be a grizzly bear.
*** Det. Bill Stork is definitely a stork.
*** Jimmy, the lizard who serves as the director at Kirk's audition, has the full name of Jimmy Lizard.
*** Nicky Flippers is a frog.
* StealthPun: When Boingo shows up during Red's bike ride, he says, "Nice outfit! Always red with you. You must be in autumn."
* [[spoiler:[[StoryboardingTheApocalypse Storyboarding The Forest's Destruction]] ]]: Literally done by [[spoiler:Boingo]] to Red with a slideshow presentation to demonstrate his plan.
* StorybookOpening: Literal one. Not only is it used to open the film itself, but also to open each character's story, by flipping backwards to a map and zooming in on a certain location. Red's and the Wolf's zoom in on the house at the lower left corner of the map, Kirk's goes to the building on the upper left corner, and Granny's goes to the cottage.
* StuffBlowingUp: At least the tram car explosion gave that fisherman a big break, given the number of fish that flop up on the shore. Earlier, the Wolf accidentally blows up a trestle that causes Red's mine cart to go airborne, due to Twitchy mistaking a stick of dynamite for a candle.
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: "Now, dear, if there are two things I don't do, it's lie, and play extreme sports."
* [[SwissArmyAppendage Swiss Army Horns]]: For Japeth, these, of all possibilities, as much as Red gets annoyed with his inability to stop singing about them. [[MemeticMutation He is prepared]], with sets that have: bottle openers, keychains, built-in TV remotes (though if he gets good reception up in the mountains is anyone's guess), jar openers, wigs, a set that functions as a coat rack for his other sets, garden tools, clothesline, the ability to cook s'mores and weiners, even a [[HeliCritter set that lets him FLY]].
* SupervillainLair: The tramway summit terminal is in a cave. Much of the space is occupied with the tram's electrical systems, the motor room, tensioning, and machinery. It functions as [[spoiler:Boingo]]'s lair.
* TakeOurWordForIt: When Red is browsing the travel magazine in the treehouse, whatever she's reading is so unsatisfying that she tosses it away when she says "The world is too dangerous for me!" The DisasterDominoes effect occurs as the magazine lands spread open on a passing car's windshield, startling the driver enough that he loses control and crashes into a tree.
* TalksLikeASimile: Nicky. Lampshaded by Chief Grizzly: "You're just fulla those, aren't ya?"
* TemptingFate: When Red is riding up the tram with Boingo:
-->'''Boingo:''' Hey, you deliver up this far?
-->'''Red Puckett:''' Not usually. But I was thinking about what you told me earlier - about the Muffin Man? I need to protect Granny's recipes from that bandit's evil plan. They're gonna shut down everyone in the forest if we're not careful. ''(The doors immediately fly open, and a few seconds later, Red falls, grabbing the basket as she goes over)''
** {{Foreshadowing}} example, when Kirk is talking with Boingo after finding his truck vandalized:
-->'''Kirk:''' I'm getting schnitzeled left and right today! I cannot even sell the bunion cream! Now I'm gonna lose my job!
-->'''Boingo:''' Well chin up, mister! Maybe someday someone will open up a great big goody shop, and we can all work for that little guy.
* TheAhnold: Dolph.
* [[ThisIsWhatTheBuildingWillLookLike This Is What The Forest Will Look Like Afterwards]]: Done by [[spoiler:Boingo]].
* ThrowItIn: Boingo's short rant regarding Keith's name was improvised. Some of Boingo's other lines were ad-libbed.
* TitleDrop: [[VillainSong 'You've been Hoodwinked, Baby!']]
* TraitorShot: It's only visible for a split second, but when Red is falling from the tram, you can see Boingo glaring down at her, with an expression of anger instead of one of concern. A FreezeFrameBonus if you notice that he grabs for her basket right before she falls.
* TropesForDummies: Kirk can't cut a tree with proper stance. Fortunately, he improves upon finding a copy of ''[[TropesForDummies Chopping for]] [[SelfDeprecation Actors]]'' ("Discover Your Inner Woodsman!")
* TooDumbToLive: The Wolf when Red distracts him so that she escapes from him. Once she beats him up and hands her cloak over to the hummingbirds, she hides in a tree and the Wolf takes the bait of following the cloak. Notice that he is ''completely'' oblivious to the fact that said cloak is ''floating'' and there are no human legs underneath it, plus its movement does not replicate the motions of a running person.
** Considering that she had just beaten him up and run from him, it would be no surprise if he's just disoriented or desperate to catch up with her.
* [[TooIncompetentToOperateABlanket Too Incompetent To Operate A Felling Axe]]: Kirk. Just look at how pathetic his first few attempts are. First, he tries holding his axe by the blade and hitting the tree with the handle, coming off looking like a complete idiot in the process. Then he tries forcing the blade against the tree like he's trying to split the tree down the middle. Finally, he's seen jamming it against the tree and trying to uproot it from the ground with his foot. Only once he reads ''[[TropesForDummies Chopping For]] [[SelfDeprecation Actors]]'' (it's the best book on the market if you want to know how to find your inner woodsman) does he get the hang of how to properly use the axe. Sure his stance improves, but it's not effective against 1,000 year old redwood trees.
* UncomfortableElevatorMoment: {{Lampshaded}} wonderfully by Stork when Red finds out that Granny is living a secret life as an extreme sports athlete:
-->'''Granny Puckett:''' Honey, don't look at your granny like that.
-->'''Red Puckett:''' I'm sorry, I thought you were Triple G! [[DeadpanSnarker Or are you the Bandit]]?
-->''({{Beat}})''
-->'''Det. Bill Stork:''' [[LampshadeHanging Awkward!]] ''[awkwardly side-steps out of the room]''
-->'''Granny Puckett:''' You're being ridiculous, Red.
-->'''Red Puckett:''' ''I'm'' being ridiculous?! You're off living... ''La Vida Loca'', risking your life for some dumb thrills! And I'm supposed to stay home and be your happy little delivery girl?!
-->'''Tommy:''' I have a...
-->'''Nicky Flippers:''' Coffee break, anyone?
-->'''Chief Grizzly:''' Uh, yeah. ''[Everyone files out except for Red and Granny]''
-->'''Det. Bill Stork:''' Who's got my keys?
-->'''Raccoon Jerry:''' You think Granny would mind if I went through her garbage?
-->'''Chief Grizzly:''' Excuse us.
-->''[Everyone exits, leaving Granny alone with Red]''
* UnreliableNarrator: Everyone sees the events differently, a la ''Rashomon''. Somewhat subverted: no one is actually lying, they just have limited perspectives. This means that when two characters have overlapping encounters, you will notice many subtle and/or very obvious differences - lighting, dialogue, positions of objects, and characters' actions. For analysis, let's look at the Wolf's encounter with Red after she falls from the tramway:
** In Red's story, the trees cast very long shadows. Considering that she had just fallen about 50 to 100 feet from a moving tram car into an area she is probably not familiar with, she would be frightened. In the Wolf's story, the scene has more regular lighting.
** The sequence of Red's screams during the fall differ significantly between the two stories, but she still hits the same number of branches on the way down.
** In the Wolf's story, the tram car doors open and Red falls almost instantly. In Red's story, there's a five second interval between the moment the doors open and when she actually falls.
** The way Red sees it, the Wolf roars to frighten her. The Wolf is actually yelling in pain when his tail gets caught in Twitchy's camera as Twitchy is trying to fix it after coughing it up (having swallowed it accidentally after Red crashed through the tree branch Twitchy was on when she fell).
** In Red's story, after Twitchy lands and takes the accidental photo of her, she turns around and the Wolf has instantly appeared there. In the Wolf's story, he is still behind the bush when Twitchy does this, facepalms, and is just coming out from his hiding place when Red turns around.
** The Wolf overtakes Red by taking a taxi. In the middle of the forest.
** When the second part of the encounter happens, Red runs in a straight line after being scared into running. In the Wolf's story, she appears to take more of a zigzag course.
** Red gasps when the Wolf appears for the second time in the Wolf's story. In her story, she turns and this is accompanied by a ScareChord.
** When Red pepper-sprays the Wolf, their stories depart drastically.
*** Red's story: The Wolf steps out, asks to see what's in her basket. She pepper-sprays him, and runs.
*** The Wolf's story: he steps out as she approaches, and asks to see what's in her basket. She pepper-sprays him, beats him up, disables him with a spin kick, then gathers her heels and walks away.
* UnusualEuphemism: "Schnitzel" for "shit" when the tree starts to fall towards Kirk. Also used as a substitute when he finds his truck raided.
* UrbanFantasy: There are cars - a [[ChronicallyCrashedCar sports car]] and 1990s-style police cars. Also, there is a mix of cell phones and old-style telephones (Red uses a payphone early in her story, and also uses an old rotary phone when she is inside Japeth's shack, and Granny has a cell phone during the ski race).
* VerbedTitle
* VillainSong: "Top Of The Woods" for [[spoiler:Bongo, the Goodie Bandit]].
* VisualPun: [[AWolfInSheepsClothing Wolf disguises himself as a sheep in order to interrogate his paid informant, Woolworth.]]
** During the credits, you see a drawing of the Woodsman playing air guitar on his [[StealthPun axe]].
** At the ski race, "Granny wins by a landslide!" literally.
* WaifFu: Red is a proficient martial artist (she's a black belt and the region champion, and even has a photo of herself in a martial arts uniform on the wall in Granny's house). Too bad her moves are ineffective against rabbit ears.
* WaitingForABreak: The Woodsman sold schnitzel out of his truck as a day job while waiting to land his next role. At least, until someone stole his supplies and stripped his truck of its tires.
* WasItAllALie: Red found out about her Granny's double life. She felt betrayed because Granny never lets her do anything. Granny thought Red was happy and it was important that she [[PassingTheTorch deliver her goodies as their ancestors had done]]. Granny realized she deserves more in life.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: You have to wonder what would have happened had the Weinstein Company not ordered the recasting of a number of main characters' voices. In the finished film, Tara Strong has a bit role as Zorra, the fox on Granny's ski team. As the film was originally cast, she also voiced Red before AnneHathaway did. David Ogden Stiers voices Flippers, and also used to voice Kirk. The Edwards brothers' associate Tony Leech voiced Det. Bill Stork before Anthony Anderson. Emmy-winning actress Sally Struthers voiced Granny before Glenn Close did. Only a few of the original cast roles were kept when ExecutiveMeddling set in - such as Patrick Warburton as the Wolf and Andy Dick as Boingo.
** And Japeth almost got recast.
* [[WeNeedADistraction I Need a Distraction]]:
** Red's escape from the Wolf. First, she incapacitates him by pepper-spraying him (then beating him up), then runs. She comes upon a swarm of hummingbirds, and hands her cloak over to them. The birds fly the cloak away while Red hides in a tree. The Wolf takes the bait, chases the cloak, and falls into a river for his trouble.
** Granny escapes from the Bandit's henchmen during the ski race by setting off some charges that trigger an avalanche. [[BrickJoke Said avalanche also sweeps down the hill and nearly collects the mine cart Red and Japeth are riding in down below]].
* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: In a FreezeFrameBonus, when the Wolf is describing his column "Facts and Fairy Tales", the front page of an edition of ''The Once Upon a Times'' is shown. The tiny text "Woodland County Editon" can be seen in a border on the visible part of the page. Based on the trees and the alpine environments, the movie setting appears to be somewhere in the heart of the Rocky Mountains (the vistas, such as distant ones in Red's treehouse scene, look like what you might see in Yellowstone or Rocky Mountain National Parks).
* WhiteBunny: Boingo
* YouCantMissIt / WhenLifeGivesYouLemons: The directions Boingo gives the Wolf to Granny's house.
-->'''The Wolf:''' You know how to get there?
-->'''Boingo:''' Oh, yeah. Yeah, in fact, I know a shortcut.
-->'''The Wolf:''' ''[to Twitchy, incredulous]'' You hear that? He knows a shortcut.
-->'''Boingo:''' You go over the woods and through the river... no, you don't wanna go through the river. You'll get all wet.
-->'''The Wolf:''' You see, Twitchy, [[WhenLifeGivesYouLemons you get lemons, you make lemonade]]...
-->''[Cuts to the Wolf and Twitchy walking in ankle-deep water through a pitch-black tunnel; Twitchy turns on his camera light for additional illumination]''
-->'''The Wolf:''' ...and then that lemonade goes bitter, and ferments, and turns to pig-swill. Never trust a bunny with directions, Twitchy.
-->'''Twitchy:''' Sure thing, boss! Never trust a bunny!
** Moments later:
-->'''The Wolf:''' We are in a pickle, and I blame myself. That bunny was worthless, not to mention he wrote the directions on an '''Easter Egg''' ''[holds up a brightly colored Easter egg with illegible text scribbled on the side]'' which is ''very'' hard to read.
* YouGetMeCoffee: Keith receiving an order to change his name to Boris because that's a scarier name.

* AnythingButThat: "Not broccoli!"
* AsYouKnow: Verushka to Granny while explaining her FreudianExcuse.

[[caption-width-right:350: [[DullSurprise This definitely looks like the most exotic]] PoliceLineup we've had in years.]]

->''"Let's just say that if a tree falls in the forest you'll get [[RashomonStyle three stories: yours, mine, and the tree's.]]"''
-->-- '''Inspector Nicky Flippers'''

''Hoodwinked'' is an AllCGICartoon movie released in 2005 that parodies the LittleRedRidingHood fairy tale. Possibly inspired by ''{{WesternAnimation/Shrek}}'', the movie is an UrbanFantasy retelling, using a [[TheRashomon Rashomon]]-style interrogation set-up to tell the story, with AlternateCharacterInterpretation for all of the tale's characters.

The movie starts InMediasRes, as the police detain everybody at Granny's house -- the Wolf, the Woodsman, Red Puckett, and Granny -- and interrogate them separately to find out what happened. Each then narrates the events of their day that led up to their arrival at Granny's place.

A sequel titled ''Hoodwinked Too: Hood Versus Evil'', in which the Wolf and Red team up to rescue Literature/HanselAndGretel, was released in April 2011 after several years in DevelopmentHell.
----
!!The original movie contains examples of:

* AdaptationExpansion: Expands the LittleRedRidingHood story.
* AllStarCast: Funnily, this wasn't planned to happen. Originally, a few actors voiced two characters: Tara Strong voiced Red and Zorra, a member of Granny's ski team. David Ogden Stiers voiced Flippers as well as Kirk (if this had stayed, Flippers interviewing Kirk would essentially be one guy interviewing himself). The Edwards brothers' associate Tony Leech voiced Det. Bill Stork, Sally Struthers voiced Granny, Joel [=McCrary=] as Chief Grizzly, and Tom Kenny was Woolworth. Only a few of the original cast roles were kept - such as Patrick Warburton's role as the Wolf and Andy Dick's role as Boingo.
** Due to ExecutiveMeddling by the distributor, a lot of these voice roles were changed in favor of high profile actors:
*** AnneHathaway replaced Strong to provide Red's voice.
*** Jim Belushi replaced Ogden Stiers as Kirk's voice.
*** Anthony Anderson replaced Tony Leech to voice Det. Stork
*** Xzibit replaced [=McCrary=] as Grizzly.
*** Chazz Palminteri replaced Tom Kenny for Woolworth.
*** Benjy Gaither's role as Japeth almost got recast by better known country singers. [[WhatCouldHaveBeen It would have been interesting if someone like Willie Nelson were voicing him.]]
*** The animation had been completed to such an extent that when the roles were recast, the new actors had to deliver the new lines exactly the same way the original lines had been given.
* AlternativeForeignThemeSong: Has its own Japanese [[http://www.56.com/u69/v_MjE5ODQxMzA.html theme song]].
* AnythingButThat: When [[spoiler:Boingo]] is being taken away in the police truck, he pleads, "Not prison! Not for [[spoiler:a cute little bunny rabbit!]]"
* AndNowForSomethingCompletelyDifferent: A very organic look was given to contrast the film from what producer Preston Stutzman called the "candy-coated, brightly colored pastel world[s]" of other CGI films. The filmmakers also took cues from ''TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'' about skewing characters' shapes: For example, if you look closely at Kirk, one eye is slightly larger than the other. [[http://www.awn.com/articles/drtoon/dr-toon-peek-under-hood/page/5%2C1 Sometimes, you wonder if he may have had a small birth defect]]. And Red only has four fingers on each hand, and her overall appearance resembles that of a doll. It's best seen when [[http://www.awn.com/articles/drtoon/dr-toon-peek-under-hood/page/6%2C1 her hands are extended]].
** Unlike the ''{{Shrek}}'' franchise, this film is not supposed to be a satire, so a different style of humor is used. Also, supernatural elements (magic, wizards, fairies) are not present in the story (well, for the most part. Japeth was [[CursedWithAwesome cursed 37 years ago by a mountain witch]] that [[BlatantLies only allows him to sing]])
* AsideGlance: The Wolf gives a brief one after Twitchy says he doesn't drink coffee - while speaking at hyperspeed.
** Red:
*** When she throws a magazine over the side of her treehouse and causes a car to crash, Red blinks and takes a look at the camera at the sound of the crash.
*** When Red is retrieving the recipe book from the vault, the woodpecker asks her, "Are they gonna get your recipes?" Red turns and says "Not today," to the bird. The camera is positioned in such a way that it looks like she is speaking to the camera.
*** Red pauses to give an exasperated stare to the camera when Japeth denies having just spoken normally.
** Also Twitchy gives the camera a pleased look when he hears his voice played back at quarter-speed on a recorder. Fun fact: that's Cory Edwards' actual voice at normal speed.
* ArtisticLicenseEngineering: The tramway that is used for the finale, and made use of in Red's story, has a lot of glaring issues in it that will be easily spotted by anyone who has done mechanical work on a ski resort chairlift: for one thing, the tram cable would need to run in a continuous loop in order to allow for tension to function. There would also need to be a second car going down when this one is going up. Also, the car only runs on a single cable. Because of the increased weight of the cabins, cable cars in the United States have three cables (two outside stationary cables that the cabin grip rides on, and a moving cable in the middle that pulls the car up or down). A lack of intermediate support towers, however, is not entirely unrealistic, as there are actual tramways in the United States (Lone Peak Tramway at Big Sky Resort in Montana, for instance) that don't have any intermediate towers.
** Also, the tram car appears to operate independently of the cable despite having to use that to be pulled up the mountain. The only way it could accelerate to that high velocity is if Boingo disconnected the main gearbox.
* AvoidTheDreadedGRating: A writer for Focus on the Family's ''Plugged In'' magazine said the film could have squeaked by with a "G" rating. Let me reiterate that: ''[[MoralGuardians Focus on the Family]]'' said the content rating on a movie was ''too strict''.
** Well there is a plot by a rabbit about cornering a market, and there's StuffBlowingUp in spectacular fashion (a tram car and a wooden trestle).
* AwesomeButImpractical: We never get to see what the mine carts do, other than move Red's and the Wolf's stories along and give them another near-encounter. It appears that this must be some kind of mine with tracks clearly built by Imagineers who had been on [[DisneyThemeParks Big Thunder Mountain Railroad]] too much, but it's not quite clear what the carts carry because they are never seen loaded (possibly gold). And if the carts are gravity powered, then it's never explained why they have a water tower installed, or an emergency ladder in the middle of a track going down into a batcave.
* BadassGrandma: Granny. She fights in ''cage matches'', fer cryin' out loud.
** And she was the ''champion''!
* BadBadActing: Kirk's attempt to pose as Dolph to fool Boingo fails spectacularly, despite him and the Wolf having apparently rehearsed this on the way up.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Who would ever suspect [[spoiler:little Boingo]]?
* BigEater: The Three Little Officer Pigs, who are caught eating forensic evidence when Grizzly arrives. When Flippers arrives, he says:
-->'''Nicky Flippers:''' Say, Tommy, you losing weight?
-->'''Tommy:''' Uh, no.
-->'''Nicky Flippers:''' Didn't think so.
* BlatantLies:
-->'''Granny:''' If there's two things I don't do, is lie, and play extreme sports.
** Throughout the Wolf's [[PaperThinDisguise poor attempt to impersonate Granny]], including such gems like this:
--->'''Red Puckett:''' And what big ''ears'' you have!\\
'''The Wolf:''' ''[getting irritated]'' All the better to hear your... ''many'' criticisms. Old people just have big ears, dear.
* BilingualBonus: When [[spoiler:Boingo]] is isuing orders to his henchmen, he orders Dolph to tie up Red, Lisa to hold Granny's recipe book, Vincent to grab Kirk's truck. He tells Keith:
-->[[YouGetMeCoffee Darnit, change your name]]! Please? That's not scary! And I'm embarrassed to say it. "Boris." Try that. ''(Keith storms off)'' Keith, you know. Oh, "[[SarcasmMode watch out for Keith!]]"
** Besides the fact that Andy Dick [[ThrowItIn ad-libbed this line]], the bonus comes from the fact that the alternate name and the original name mean basically the same thing in different languages: "Keith" is Scottish-Gaelic for "from the battlefield", while "Boris" is Slavic for "battler" or "warrior".
** When Kirk tells Jimmy at the audition that he wants to be a member of the Happy Yodelers, we see a poster that reads, in Swedish, "Tonite only, Sporthalen - Eskiltuna, Tisdag 29 oktober 19.00".
* BlandNameProduct: Some characters are seen drinking "Forest Dew". Obviously because Mountain Dew wouldn't pay royalties.
* BlindingCameraFlash: Happens accidentally. Specifically, one of the photos Twitchy takes during Red's first encounter with the Wolf (not intentionally, as Red's fall from the tram car had caused Twitchy to end up accidentally swallowing his camera).
* BoundAndGagged: First Granny (She wound up [[spoiler:tangled in her glider]] when the parasol and ripcord got caught in the ceiling fan) and later Red (as a prisoner [[spoiler:of Boingo.]])
* BrickJoke: As the four protagonists tell their day's accounts, they are essentially a long succession of these. A small detail in one character's story that seems bizarre or out-of-place will be explained when another character's story is told.
** For instance, in the entire mine cart sequence, everything about Red's ride is what you would expect... except for the snow slide coming over the edge of the shelf that comes close to collecting her cart. It was Granny using explosive charges to escape from the Bandit's henchmen in a ski race on the upper mountain.
** The porcupine with the ChronicallyCrashedCar is a BrickJoke.
** Also, the fisherman on the river bank that the Wolf floats by after Red tricks him into falling into the water. He's obviously not had much success. When the tram car lands in the river and blows up after Granny releases the grip, dozens of disturbed fish flock up on the shore around him. Hillariously, he doesn't even move from his position despite the enormous fireball that is produced.
* BringIt: During the entire fight in the tramway terminal, [[spoiler:Boingo]] does the "bring it" gesture [[spoiler: with his ''ear''.]]
** Of course, there's also Granny's line at the end: "Bring it, honey."
*** Which is a CallBack to her saying it to [[TheAhnold Dolph]] before the ski race.
---->'''Dolph:''' You be careful, Granny Puckett. Old people get hurt on these slopes.\\
'''Granny Puckett:''' Bring it, honey.
* BrokenPedestal: Red invokes this trope when Granny's secret extreme sports life is revealed:
-->'''Granny Puckett:''' Honey, don't look at your granny like that.
-->'''Red Puckett:''' I'm sorry, I thought you were Triple G! Or are you the Bandit?
-->''[beat]''
-->'''Det. Bill Stork:''' [[LampshadeHanging Awkward!]]
-->''[awkwardly side slips his way out of the room]''
-->'''Granny Puckett:''' You're being ridiculous, Red.
-->'''Red Puckett:''' ''I'm'' being ridiculous?! You're off living... ''La Vida Loca'', risking your life for some dumb thrills! And I'm supposed to stay home and be your happy little delivery girl?!
-->'''Tommy:''' [[UncomfortableElevatorMoment I have a]]...
-->'''Nicky Flippers:''' Coffee break, anyone?
-->'''Chief Grizzly:''' Uh, yeah.
-->'''Det. Bill Stork:''' Who's got my keys?
-->'''Raccoon Jerry:''' You think Granny would mind if I went through her garbage?
-->'''Chief Grizzly:''' Excuse us.
-->''[Everyone except Red and Granny files out of the room]''
-->'''Granny Puckett:''' I thought you were happy.
-->'''Red Puckett:''' Open your eyes. I've never even been outside of the forest. Don't you think I'd want more than that?
-->'''Granny Puckett:''' Of course you do. You're a Puckett.
-->'''Red Puckett:''' ''[sighs]'' I don't know what that means anymore.
* CaffeineBulletTime: used by Twitchy at one point.
* CassandraTruth: When Red calls Granny from Japeth's shack:
-->'''Red Puckett:''' Granny?
-->'''Granny Puckett:''' Huh? What's that? Who's there?
-->'''Red Puckett:''' It's Red. I'm on my way to come see you-
-->'''Granny Puckett:''' Oh my, dearie, I-I'm not prepared! I need to... put down fresh doilies! Aah! ''[slips on something]''
-->'''Red Puckett:''' Granny! Granny! What's wrong?
-->'''Granny Puckett:''' Gotta go, munchkin. Bonasi! ''[the line is disconnected]''
-->'''Red Puckett:''' Oh no!
-->''[hangs up and turns to Japeth, wild-eyed]''
-->'''Red Puckett:''' Mr. Goat! My granny's in trouble! I've got to find a way around the mountain, fast!
-->'''Japeth:''' ''[singing]'' Well you came to the right goat! ''[pops off his rocking horns]'
-->'''Red Puckett:''' Oh, good. More singing.
** Granny's story shows that this call happens during her ski race, and she is busy trying to deal with the Bandit's henchmen skiers. This means that Red is right when she fears Granny is in grave danger, though she doesn't know that that's true.
* CasualDangerDialogue: Or lyrics, for that matter. During Red's mine cart ride, when the avalanche hits, Japeth goes "Ohhhhh an avalanche is coming and I do not feel prepared / It's running like a mountain lion, I must say that I'm scared / But if not for the witch's spell you'd hear just how I scream / But since I'm only singing I'll just yodel 'til we're creamed!"
* ChekhovsGun: Coffee for Twitchy causes him to speed around like a rocket.
** When the Wolf is doing surveillance on the tram car from the ground with a radar gun and headset, while he's scanning, a couple bars of the yodeling chorus from the "Schnitzel Song" can heard for a brief second. You hear the rest once Kirk's story is told.
* ChekhovsGunman: [[spoiler:Boingo]] is the bandit. The only clue is that [[spoiler:all four main characters encounter him during their day.]]
** [[spoiler:FridgeBrilliance present: you will probably not be suspicious of Boingo when he appears during Red's story, as that's the first time you'll see im. Once you see him show up at Kirk's truck RIGHT after the truck has been broken into (apparently in between his two scenes with Red because he's still holding the carrot crumpet she gave him during the encounter on the bike), you know something's fishy. That he tries encouraging Kirk by saying that one day, "somebody will open up a great big goody shop, and we can all work for that little guy," kinda gives an idea of what his plans are.]]
** [[spoiler:Furthermore, you might figure out he's up to no good when he tells the Wolf and Twitchy to take a shortcut: "You go over the woods and through the river.... No, you don't wanna go through the river. You'll get all wet." Note that he takes "Over the river and through the woods to grandmother's house," and switches the first two nouns.]]
** A minor case involves the hummingbird chorus in "Great Big World" that carries Red and her bike across a river. The birds later show up when Red hands her cloak over to them and they serve to trick the Wolf into falling off a cliff.
* ChronicallyCrashedCar: There's a blue sports car with a rear wing attachment that keeps being wrecked by the main characters' actions.
** First, it's seen being driven by a duck during the treehouse scene. Red throws up her arms in exasperation and unwittingly tosses her magazine away. It falls, and lands on the car's windshield, which startles him enough that he drives into a tree (the impact is not shown as the image cuts back to Red right before the impact, but we do hear tires, the crash, and see a tree shaking in the background, followed by the driver yelling out that he is okay, and Red shooting an AsideGlance at the camera).
** The second and third times, it's driven by a porcupine and both times the impact is caused by Kirk. It's first crushed by a tree during Kirk's tree chopping spree. At the end, as the bad guys are being taken away, the Wolf and Kirk are driving Kirk's converted truck down the hill. When they arrive at the bottom:
--->'''Kirk:''' Hello, everybody! Look, we've got the book! ''(The truck hits a tree, which is uprooted and crushes the porcupine's car again)''
* CompletelyMissingThePoint: After "Top of the Woods", there's:
-->'''Granny Puckett:''' Sweet tea and cookies! We've got to do something.
-->'''The Wolf:''' I know. The song was catchy, but the choreography was terrible.
** And:
--->'''Chief Ted Grizzly:''' Take 'em downtown, boys!
-->'''Det. Bill Stork:''' D'ah, it's the woods, chief. We don't have a downtown.\\
'''Chief Ted Grizzly:''' You know what I mean! Just book 'em!
** When [[spoiler:Boingo]] and Dolph get off the tram, Dolph makes it clear to [[spoiler:Boingo]] that they need to worry about Granny, but [[spoiler:Boingo]] doesn't seem to get the point.
** When Kirk is about to be interviewed:
--->'''Chief Grizzly:''' This guy's a loon.\\
'''Bill Stork:''' Watch it, chief, my mama's half-loon.
* ConcealingCanvas: When Red retrieves Granny's recipe book, it's shown to be locked up in a safe that is hidden behind a family portrait of Red's grandfather.
* CoolOldLady: Think Vin Diesel from Triple X, she even uses a few signature moves from that movie in the ski race.
** You mean like the 3 'G's tattooed on her neck, and that whole bit of dialog?
* CrazyPrepared: Japeth the mountain goat, which he even sings about. After the mine cart he and Red are in goes airborne, he escapes with a pair of horns fitted with helicopter rotors. Red is rather shocked when she sees him fly away with this set.
** In the ski race, Granny has dynamite charges ready to set off at a moment's notice, for any enemy ski teams.
** Red carries a can of "Wolf-Away", which comes handy if you should have a confrontation with a wolf in the woods.
* CreatorCameo: Cory Edwards plays Twitchy. His voice was then digitally sped up to create Twitchy's "normal" voice, but when the Lassie scene happens and Twitchy speaks very quickly into a tapedeck, Twitchy's audio is slowed down to quarter-speed to create Edwards' normal voice.
* CursedWithAwesome: Japeth says he can't speak, only sing. Possibly the [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome best song]] in the whole film.
** BlatantLies, as proven by the dialogue that occurs when Red meets Japeth on his porch:
--->'''Red Puckett:''' I'm looking for Granny Puckett's house? \\
'''Japeth the Goat:''' ''[singing]'' Graaaaaaaanneeee Puckeeeet... \\
'''Red Puckett:''' Could you stop singing for one moment? \\
'''Japeth the Goat:''' ''[singing]'' No I can't, I wish I could, but a mountain witch done put a spell on me, 37 years agoooooooo, and now I gotta sing every thing I saaaaaaaaayyyyyy... \\
'''Red Puckett:''' [[DeadpanSnarker Everything]]? \\
'''Japeth the Goat:''' ''[speaking]'' That's right. \\
'''Red Puckett:''' You just talked! Just now! \\
'''Japeth the Goat:''' Oh, did I? ''[singing]'' Did I? Dididididodadidididoooo... \\
''[Red gives a pissed off AsideGlance to the camera]''
* CutawayGag: Red's first conversation with Flippers contains one:
-->'''Nicky Flippers:''' What's your name?
-->'''Red Puckett:''' Red.
-->'''Nicky Flippers:''' And why do they call you that?
-->'''Red Puckett:''' Why do they call ''you'' "Flippers"?
-->''[Cuts to Flippers on the dance floor at a disco club in a flashy white suit. As the crowd chants "Go Flippers!" in the background, he does a perfect backflip and lands in a splitz]''
-->'''Nicky Flippers:''' Uh, [[BlatantLies no reason]]. ''[scratches his tie like an unconscious habit]''
** And when Flippers starts to interview Granny, and she is asked if she's been stealing from anyone, she says, "Oh no, Mr. Flippers. The only crime I've ever committed is make my goodies unlawfully delicious." Cuts to Tommy holding a bag that says ''Granny Puckett's Goodies - [[ExactWords Unlawfully Delicious]]!''
** At the bar:
--->'''The Wolf:''' So, how 'bout that new delivery system? \\
'''Red Puckett:''' Well, it beats riding a bike, that's for sure. \\
''[Cuts to Japeth riding a mine cart filled with food]'' \\
'''Japeth:''' ''[singing]'' Oh I've got horns to hold the muffins, and I've got horns to hold the pies....
* DeadpanSnarker: Red and the Wolf have moments. The CutawayGag quote is one, for right after it:
-->'''Red Puckett:''' They call me "Red" [[CaptainObvious because of this red hood I wear]].
-->'''Nicky Flippers:''' What about when you're not wearing it? ''(beat)''
-->'''Red Puckett:''' ''(quietly)'' I usually wear it.
** When Red hangs up after using Japeth's shack phone to call Granny, only to get disconnected, she pleads for Japeth to help her:
-->'''Red Puckett:''' Mr. Goat, my granny's in trouble! I've got to find a way around the mountain, fast!
-->'''Japeth:''' ''[singing]'' Well you came to the right goat! ''(pops off his rocking horns)''
-->'''Red Puckett:''' Oh, good. [[SarcasmMode More singing]].
** When the Wolf watches Red's fall from the tram car:
-->'''The Wolf:''' ''[into tape recorder]'' Ouch.
* DeerInTheHeadlights: Kirk freezes up in fear when the giant tree is falling towards him.
* DeusExMachina: The can of "Wolf-Away" pepper spray that Red uses in her first encounter with the Wolf counts. As does Granny's sudden acquisition of explosive charges of the kind that ski patrollers use to set off controlled slides on avalanche prone ski slopes (bowls and double-black trails) during the ski race.
* TheDogWasTheMastermind: The mastermind turns out to be [[spoiler:the bunny rabbit.]]
* DontExplainTheJoke:
-->'''[[spoiler:Boingo]]''': I'm gonna need a lot of real estate down the mountain, so I've gotta blow the competition away. Oh, and that's not a metaphor. We've literally got to ''blow'' them away. OK?
-->'''Red Puckett:''' [[DeadpanSnarker Yeah, I got it.]]
* DynamiteCandle: Twitchy pulls out a stick of dynamite when the mine cart enters a tunnel. "Dee-na-mee-tay. Hmm, must be Italian." (''AChristmasStory'' ShoutOut?)
* EasterEgg: Wolf and Twitchy end up in a cave populated with bats, due to them making the mistake of trusting Boingo to find a shortcut to Granny's place. It doesn't help that Boingo had scribbled illegible directions and a map on to the side of a brightly colored [[VisualPun Easter Egg]].
* EmbarrassingTattoo: Sort of. Granny's got a tattoo of three G's on the back of her neck. [[VinDiesel Flippers says that is appropriate because she already has three strikes against her]].
* EpicFail: The Wolf's PaperThinDisguise in impersonating Granny. Red is not fooled for even a second.
* EverybodyWasKungFuFighting: And handled '''much''' less clunkily than the way it was handled in the {{Shrek}} franchise; the prize for the most impressive and spectacular martial artists in the film goes to [[spoiler:Boingo, who utilizes his ''ears'' as the primary weapon of his highly effective personal style of martial arts]]. Red's method is also quite awesome, at least in the Wolf's story where she beats him up.
* EverythingsNuttierWithSquirrels: Twitchy, natch.
* EvilLaugh: [[spoiler:Boingo]].
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: Granny's products are "Unlawfully Delicious", and that's even written on the packaging.
* ExactWords: Boingo tells the Wolf and Twitchy that he knows a shortcut to Granny's house. It involves going "Over the woods and through the river" - note that he doesn't falter when switching the two nouns.
* FamilyFriendlyFirearms: During the ski race / battle, the combatants fire snowballs at each other.
* FauxAffablyEvil: [[spoiler:Boingo, who generally talks in a joyful and non-menacing tone, cracks jokes, but does nothing to hide just how monstrous he really is.]]
* FeatherFingers: Boingo's ears.
* {{Foreshadowing}} / FreezeFrameBonus: There are tons of these in the movie that would be overlooked until another character's point of view is told.
** In the second part of the confrontation between Red and the Wolf, Red pulls out a mace can and sprays it in the Wolf's eyes. It's called "[[MeaningfulName Wolf Away Spray]]".
** If you look carefully during Red's mine cart ride with Japeth, when they pop out of the tunnel, you see the drop they go down with a POV shot. If you freeze it about midway down the drop, you will see that the Wolf and Twitchy are in the mine cart that goes by on the track Red's cart goes under. When the Wolf gets to this point in the story, if you freeze when the Wolf says "Now THIS is a shortcut!" you can see Red and Japeth dropping in the background, and can hear Red's scream. At normal speed, you only hear the scream and Red appears as a blur for less than a second. You can even pick up a tiny bit of Japeth's yodeling if you've got a good ear.
** Another example in the mine cart sequences: Red's version of the story only tells us that she and Japeth are launched airborne as the track at the end of the tunnel has collapsed. The Wolf's story reveals that the drop after that tunnel had been blown up accidentally when the Wolf was hurrying to get rid of some lit sticks of dynamite in his cart. Likewise, the cause of the avalanche in the sequence that happens before Red and Japeth enter the tunnel is revealed to have been Granny setting off explosive charges to escape from the Bandit's henchmen.
** When Red is looking at the map of the mine routes in Japeth's shack, if you freeze it, you'll see places with names like Puckett Grove, Sam Hill, Kanbar Kanyon, Murphy's Low, Boulderdash, the Blue Yonder, Beehive, and Old Man's Cave (this last one is kind of hard to tell because it's located at a spot where Red's head obscures the text). Also there is a marker for a water tower and a misspelled "You are here" point marker.
*** Freeze frames are necessary to get all of the Swiss Army Horns that Japeth uses during "Be Prepared". You'll notice that one set of his antlers is apparently a campfire set with hot dogs and s'mores on the ends, for instance. Even a Mohawk style is saying a lot.
** A nice one in Red's story when the doors open and she falls from the tram car. [[spoiler:If you watch it frame by frame, you'll see that Boingo makes a grab for Red's basket, not her, right as she grabs it before going over, and has an angry expression as opposed to a concerned one. This appears to suggest that he knew Granny's book was in the basket, and was intending on snatching it, then pushing Red out, but she falls a couple seconds too soon.]]
** When the storybook is flipping back to begin each character's story, you might notice snippets of text from the Brothers Grimm version of the original fairy tale.
** Audio version: when the Wolf pulls out his radar gun to start listening in on activity in the tram, he aims it to make sure it's working. When he is holding it out, it picks up some interesting things on his headset. In order: a goat bleating, frogs croaking, a couple bars of the yodeling chorus to the "Schnitzel Song", and then a conversation between two caterpillars on a leaf underneath the Wolf.
** When the picture of Red in her martial arts uniform is seen during the interruption of her beating up the Wolf in the Wolf's retelling, you'll see that the text on the bottom reads "Red Puckett: Forest Regional Karate Champion".
** The taxicab the Wolf uses to overtake Red has a Paul's Bunion Cream advertisement on the roof.
** In TheReveal that [[spoiler:Boingo]] is the Bandit, his signing of Granny's autograph prior to the ski race is revisited. Interesting entries can be seen on his checklist, including: "Take Down Muffin Man," "Ruin Red," "Send Wolf on wild goose chase," "Pay off ski team," and "Call Mom".
** When the notary is sharpening his pencil prior to Red telling her story, you can see he's already written some summary notes in his notepad, including "Red - Related to Granny - Establish timeline for Wolf - check references."
** When Red is reading the magazine ''Far Away Places'' in the treehouse, certain shots will show text about a number of foreign places like China and Scotland. She is looking at a cartoon of a rhino and zebra having tea (this one's hard to tell as the image is partially out-of-frame).
** When Boingo shows his apocalypse slideshow to Red, you might notice that his "Boingoland" territory has an airport in it, an amusement park, all of it extends down from the tramway terminal, and his acquired real estate also overlaps with {{Smallville}}. (FridgeLogic: This doesn't seem to make sense when you consider that the movie happens in mountainous terrain and Smallville is in very flat Kansas).
** A blink-and-you'll-miss-it type: when Twitchy is repairing his camera after accidentally swallowing it, you see that he uses a small can of a hydrogen peroxide solution to clean the individual parts. Right before we cut to the Wolf's interview with Red, he sprays a bit of the solution under his armpit like deodorant.
* FracturedFairyTale: This film takes LittleRedRidingHood and combines it with elements of cop shows and ''{{Rashomon}}''.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: Parodied in an interesting way. According to Flippers, the only crime Red has ever committed has been flying a swarm of hummingbirds over a river without a license. The Wolf is seen observing it, and comments, "Whoa! Creepy!"
** Red would be a full version of this trope if not for the fact that in the Wolf's story, there's a scene where she viciously beats him up.
* FrogsAndToads: Inspector Nicky Flippers.
* FourLinesAllWaiting: Averted. Each character's story is told individually so that there is no juggling back and forth.
* FunnyBackgroundEvent:
** When Red is reading the travel magazine in the treehouse, she throws it away in frustration. It lands on the windshield of a passing car driven by a non-human driver, who promptly loses control. The scene cuts back to a close-up of Red's face as we hear screeching tires and an OffscreenCrash (accompanied by a tree just to Red's right from our perspective shaking). She [[AsideGlance looks at the camera and lifts an eyebrow]], then turns and continues talking with a woodpecker as if nothing had happened.
** Doubles as a MeaningfulBackgroundEvent: When the Wolf and Twitchy apply the emergency brake on their mine cart after accidentally blowing up the trestle, they come to a stop at the bottom of the hill. As they are coming to their senses, the driverless cart behind them can be heard approaching the tunnel exit. The cart then comes out of the tunnel and flies off the end of the destroyed track and over the Wolf and Twitchy's stopped cart at the bottom, accompanied with a loud scream, which establishes to the viewers that it is the cart Red is riding in. They dismiss the resulting sound.
* FurryConfusion: Subverted: Flippers seems to walk a non-anthropomorphic dog into the crime scene. It's actually their notary.
** GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Then what is he doing on a ''leash''? Kinky, Nicky. Kinky...
* FurryFandom: There's a minor human character, the "Sandwich Man", who wears a fursuit. He's the guy the Wolf is interviewing at the start of his story, and briefly appears as the one human that Red passes by during "Great Big World". The Wolf even refers to him as "my furry friend."
** And, unusually for a mainstream work, he is never mentioned as being the slightest bit weird. Of course, [[LionsAndTigersAndHumansOhMy considering the setting they're in...]]
** Furries aren't widely known outside the internet or CSIMiami, so crowbarring in a joke about them would be a bit redundant.
* GenreSavvy: Red Puckett. She takes the threatening note the vandal throws through Granny's store's window seriously, and acts on her own judgment rather than what others tell her to do. Also, right before she falls out of the tram, Red correctly guesses what the Bandit's plan is [[spoiler:although not realizing that the Bandit happens to be Boingo, the only other person in the car with her]]. And unlike other versions of the tale, she fails to fall for the Wolf's PaperThinDisguise when he's impersonating Granny (the first thing she says upon seeing him is, "What? Who are you?").
** The Wolf suggests to [[spoiler:Boingo]] that his [[SupervillainLair tramway terminal]] needs to be outfitted with a DeathRay because it's standard equipment in a cave lair. This one is a ShoutOut to ''{{Goldfinger}}''.
* GilliganCut: Red says the new delivery system beats "riding a bike". Cuts to Japeth singing while riding a mine cart with customized horns to hold his products.
* GoshDangItToHeck: "What the schnitzel?" is what Kirk says when he finds his truck vandalized.
* GravityIsAHarshMistress: When the Wolf grabs Red's cape and finds it's empty, the camera pulls back to show him frozen in mid-air just past the edge of a cliff. He says "[[OhCrap OK, not cool]]", then falls straight down into the water below.
* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal: Wolf and Twitchy.
* HairRaisingHare: Boingo.
* HeliCritter: This is how Japeth survives the mine cart accident - with horns fitted with helicopter blades. When he flies by Red, who is using her cape as an improvised parachute, she looks at him in disbelief with a FlatWhat
* HowWeGotHere: The premise of the first half of the movie is everyone retelling their stories.
* IceCreamKoan: Flippers.
-->'''Chief:''' Boy, you are just ''full'' of those, aren't ya.
* IntrepidReporter: The Wolf.
* IKnewIt: The Wolf says "I knew it! [[spoiler:Never trust a bunny]]!" when Flippers makes TheReveal that [[spoiler:Boingo]] has to be the culprit. Considering that earlier, Boingo basically tricks the Wolf and Twitchy into [[spoiler:going on a long out-of-the-way route]], it's clear he is getting suspicious.
** He also says it when a conversation he overhears between Red and Boingo over his radar gun seems to confirm his suspicion that Red works for the Bandit. (Note that Red was actually expressing concern to Boingo about the Bandit's possible plan and protecting Granny's recipe book, but the Wolf was getting static that drowned out parts of the conversation)
* IncrediblyLamePun: The Wolf is a journalist with a weekly column in ''The Once Upon a Times''.
** The magazine Red is reading in the treehouse is called ''Far Away Places''.
** When Flippers says he wants to talk to Kirk, Stork says "Maybe you should AXE him yourself!" then starts laughing uncontrollably at the pun until he sees Grizzly giving him the DeathGlare, at which point he sobers up and says "I'll bring him in."
* InspectorLestrade: Grizzly is this.
-->'''Chief Grizzly:''' ''[eying the four detainees]'' This looks pretty open and shut. Little miss rosy-capes (Red) making covert deliveries to the goodie-tycoon (Granny), Wolfie tries to eat 'em both, then crazy flannel-pants with the axe here (Kirk) busts in, swinging vigilante-style. Take 'em downtown, boys!
-->'''Det. Bill Stork:''' D'ah, it's the woods, chief. We don't have a downtown.
-->'''Chief Grizzly:''' You know what I mean! Just book 'em!
-->'''Nicky Flippers:''' Not so fast, Grizzly. ''[enters]'' That's the problem with you bears: always growling up the wrong tree.
** Also, when everyone is being interviewed after the villains are captured, while Red and Granny try to put credit for saving the day on each other, Grizzly tries to take all the credit.
* IWantSong: Red's story opens with her singing the song "Great Big World".
* ImplausibleBoardingSkills: Granny surfs down the tram cable on a muffin tin. Considering that the rope gauge on many real chairlifts and gondolas is around 4.8 meters, muffin tins would not fit on real cables.
* ImplausibleDeniability: Japeth [[BlatantLies can only sing everything he says]]:
-->'''Red Puckett:''' ''[unimpressed]'' Everything?
-->'''Japeth:''' ''[speaking]'' That's right.
-->'''Red Puckett:''' You just talked! Just now!
* IronicEcho: Red Puckett's story has this. During a phone call she makes to Granny:
-->'''Granny Puckett:''' A trip up the mountain is too dangerous for a little girl.
-->'''Red Puckett:''' I'm not so little anymore!
** In the very next scene, when Red is in the treehouse:
-->'''Woodpecker:''' Are you going somewhere far away?
-->'''Red Puckett:''' No, the world is too dangerous for me! ''[Throws her arms up in the air, exasperated, and unwittingly tosses her magazine... onto a passing car's windshield]''
** When Kirk is on the phone with Jimmy, Jimmy tells him "Don't ''act'' like a woodsman, ''be'' a woodsman." Later, when the Wolf and Kirk are about to infiltrate Boingo's hideout, the Wolf tells a disguised Kirk, "Don't ''act'' like an evil henchman; ''be'' an evil henchman."
** When the Wolf and Twitchy make the mistake of following Boingo's directions and find themselves in the cave, the Wolf casually says, "Never trust a bunny with directions, Twitchy." Later, when Flippers reveals that Boingo is the Bandit, the Wolf says, "I knew it! Never trust a bunny!"
* IronicEchoCut: The second variant of this happens in Red's story when Red stops her bike for a family leaving their shut down business.
-->'''Red Puckett:''' ''[voiceover]'' With the Goodie Bandit on the loose, recipes were becoming an endangered species. I decided to call Granny. If anyone would know what to do, she would.
-->''[Cuts to Granny sewing while on the phone]''
-->'''Granny Puckett:''' I don't know what to do. I'm just a tired old lady.
* JitterCam: Used in a justifiable way during Red's mine cart ride. Is not used in the Wolf's trip over the same track, though.
* JiveTurkey: ''Granny'', hilariously enough, during the ski race.
* JumpScare: When Red is fleeing from the Wolf in her retelling. She runs for a short time, and thinks she is home free. Then she turns, and the Wolf appears from behind a tree, accompanied with the small sound of bats.
* KindaBusyHere: When Red calls from Japeth's shack, Granny is... rather busy. Revealed to be the result of talking-while-alpine-skiing - naturally, something you don't want to do when your team's being murdered. Nor something you want to do in real life, as alpine skiing with poles in each hand requires a lot of simultaneous hand and eye coordination.
* LaserGuidedKarma: Happily Ever After indeed: Red gets her wish to travel the world. Wolf gets his wish to do undercover work. Granny gets her wish to perform hair-raising stunts. Plus,[[spoiler: Boingo and his henchmen are struck by this at the end.]]
* LionsAndTigersAndHumansOhMy: Invoked.
* LittleRedFightingHood: Red Puckett is the Forest Regional Karate Champion.
* LyricalDissonance: [[spoiler:Boingo]]'s VillainSong "Top of the Woods". [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U6Nhp_xm6ms He is singing about his plans to cause mass destruction and corner the goody market...]] to a rather catchy showtune ([[ComicallyMissingThePoint although the choreography is terrible]]).
* MacGuffin: The book of recipes.
* MeaningfulName: Flippers apparently is called this because of a gig he once did at a disco club. For Red:
-->'''Red Puckett:''' They call me "Red" because of this red hood I wear.
-->'''Nicky Flippers:''' What about when you're not wearing it? ''(beat)''
-->'''Red Puckett:''' ''(quietly)'' I usually wear it.
** Not only is Red's hooded cape red, but in certain shots, her hair appears red because of the angle of the lighting (this is very noticeable in close-ups of her face in the treehouse scene).
** Boingo obviously gets his name from the springy sound he has in his hop.
* MediaScrum: Woodland critter news networks. Especially when they ask Grizzly questions like "Is the house made of gingerbread?" and "Do bears eat gingerbread?"
* MediumAwareness: When Jimmy hangs up the call on Kirk's car phone, he says, "I gotta be in a circle wipe across town but I'll see you at 10:00." That's exactly what he appears in for that very conversation. Note that all phone calls in the movie use circle-wipes (Red's first call to Granny from the payphone is shown from both characters' perspectives, as is the call Red makes to Granny's cell phone from Japeth's shack from Red's perspective only).
** In the original version of ''Top of the Woods'', [[spoiler:Boingo]] sings, "Except there won't be no rescue before the credits roll!"
** In "Great Big World", it's not quite clear whether Red is directing the song at the audience or at the police who are interviewing her.
* MethodActing: Kirk is an out-of-work actor trying to land a role, which is why he was trying to fell a large redwood tree in the first place. Unfortunately, he first acts TooIncompetentToOperateABlanket with an axe.
** See IronicEcho
* MightyLumberjack: Invoked with with Kirk, an actor playing a burly [[GermanicEfficiency German]] [[AnAxeToGrind axeman]] in foot cream commercials.
* MineCartMadness / RollercoasterMine: Japeth's system of mine carts. Later harnessed for speedy pastry delivery (though it's not explained if it caught on quickly, given that the destroyed part of track would need to be rebuilt).
* MisplacedNamesPoster:
** [[http://www.firetheimagination.ca/images/productImages/orig/Hoodwinked.jpg The DVD cover.]]
** In the Widescreen DVD cover, at least, to some extent. Luckily, a few of the important nametags are held by the correct person, but the nametag for Xzibit as Chief Grizzly is held up by Dolph, one of the skiers.
* MisplacedWildlife: Minor example, but two of Granny's teammates at the ski race are 2-Tone (a penguin) and P-Biggie (a polar bear), which is jarring considering that the movie takes place in a place similar to the Rocky Mountains. Those two are from opposite ends of the world.
* MissionImpossibleCableDrop: [[spoiler:Granny. With a drop of hairspray instead of sweat]]. Technically not a "cable drop", but an obvious shout-out to the first SpiderMan movie (where it was a drop of blood).
** A ''MissionImpossibleII'' ShoutOut happens in a shot of Granny hanging from a rock ledge.
* MistakenConfession: The Wolf suspects that Red is smuggling stuff for Granny when he listens in to her conversation with Boingo from the ground with a radar gun. He hears most of what she says after Boingo asks her if she delivers over here, but he doesn't hear the whole thing because parts of what she says are drowned out by static.
** This is what is said:
-->'''Boingo:''' Look at me, I'm fuzzy. Hey, you deliver up this far?
-->'''Red Puckett:''' Well, not usually. But I was thinking about what you told me earlier - about the Muffin Man. I need to protect Granny's recipes from that bandit's evil plan. They're gonna shut down everyone in the forest if we're not careful.
** Because the Wolf's radar gets static, all he hears is this:
-->'''Boingo:''' Hey, you deliver up this far?
-->'''Red Puckett:''' ''[unintelligble due to static]'' But I was thinking of ''[static]'' the Muffin Man ''[static]'' Granny's recipes ''[static]'' an evil plan ''[static]'' to shut down everyone in the forest.
-->'''The Wolf:''' ''[lowers his radar gun and turns it off]'' [[IKnewIt I knew it]]. She's working for the old lady.
* MoodSwinger: [[spoiler:Boingo the rabbit]]. Apparently, the producers couldn't decide whether "Verge of Tears" or "[[EvilLaugh Maniacal Cackling]]" was better, so they used both, to comedic effect.
-->'''[[spoiler:Boingo]]:''' Oh, I just '''love''' my job!
* MoodWhiplash: As Red is reminiscing about when she was younger in her OOCIsSeriousBusiness moment, she finds a medal in a flashback:
-->'''Red Puckett:''' Huh, what's this?\\
'''Granny Puckett:''' Oh, it says "World's Greatest Grandma."\\
'''Red Puckett:''' Grandma, I can read. It says "[[spoiler:Battle of the Iron Cage Gladiators]]." ''(cue black-and-white photos of Granny in a [[spoiler:cage match]])''
** At the end of "Be Prepared", we go from Japeth's wacky song while being chased by an avalanche to the mine cart being launched airborne. After Red turns her cloak into an improvised parachute, she comes out of the clouds as dramatic music plays in the background. The mood turns comedic when we see Japeth fly past Red, playing his banjo and ''flying'' with a set of helicopter horns and saying "[[CrazyPrepared I WAS PREPARED!]]" before lifting up and away.
** Arguably, some MoodDissonance when the Wolf and Twitchy accidentally ignite all the dynamite in their mine cart.
* MotorMouth: Twitchy.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Said by The Wolf after [[spoiler:giving Twitchy some coffee.]]
-->'''Granny:''' Now the rest is up to us.
-->'''Kirk:''' Can I have coffee?
* NamesTheSame: Do not confuse Japeth's number "Be Prepared" with Scar's VillainSong in ''TheLionKing''.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: [[spoiler:Boingo]] issues orders to his henchmen:
-->'''[[spoiler:Boingo]]:''' Vincent, get the truck! And Keith!... [[YouGetMeCoffee Darnit, change your name]]! Please? That's not scary! And I'm embarrassed to say it. "Boris." Try that. ''(Keith storms off)'' Keith, you know. Oh... "[[SarcasmMode watch out for Keith!]]"
** What makes it funnier is that particular moment wasn't supposed to have a joke at all. It was ad-libbed by Andy Dick, who ''did'' think "Keith" was a stupid name for an evil accomplice.
** Also somewhat ironic. See BilingualBonus for more.
* NeverHeardThatOneBefore: When the Wolf consults Woolworth in the flock for information, Woolworth says this when he jokes about "pulling the wool over his eyes". "Ha ha, hillarious. You come up with that yourself? That's funny."
* NeverMessWithGranny: Especially not "Triple G".
* NeverTrustATrailer (Twitchy: Never-trust-a-trailer!): So as to [[TrailersAlwaysSpoil preserve the story twist]], the trailers are formatted such that they constantly portray the Wolf as a moronic, incompetent villain, instead of a very intelligent investigative journalist whose only antagonism is a case of MistakenIdentity on Red's behalf.
** The trailer also mentions by name Anthony Anderson, who has maybe a dozen lines in the whole movie as the stork detective, but doesn't name Patrick Warburton, whose role is second to Red in size.
* [[spoiler:[[NeverTrustATrope Never Trust A Bunny]]]] (Twitchy: [[spoiler: Never-trust-a-bunny!]]), especially when it comes to getting directions. Often, they lead you on routes where you could be killed if you don't make the right decision.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Twitchy mistakes a stick of dynamite for a candle. In struggling with him to get rid of it, the Wolf accidentally ignites the rest of the load sitting in the back of their cart. In trying to get rid of the explosives, they end up blowing up a section of track before they safely pull the emergency brake at the bottom of the hill. The camera then pulls back to reveal just how much track has been destroyed. Seconds later, the missing track wrecks the cart that was right behind them - which just happens to be the one Red is riding in.
** Twitchy accidentally gets the Wolf's tail caught in his camera while trying to fix it after he swallowed it, causing the Wolf to cry out in pain and unintentionally scaring Red into running. Ultimately, this allows her to escape, and ultimately is the reason for the mine cart accident and Red's encounter with Japeth.
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: Arguably, [[spoiler:Boingo]]'s incidents were kind of helpful. Him pushing Red out of the tram car gives the Wolf an opportunity to interview her in person about the thefts, for one thing. Also, though the Wolf complains about the directions Boingo gave him as being misleading, it does lead them to the coal mine and they do actually get a faster ride once they board a cart.
* NoFlowInCGI: The directors went for a StopMotion look and feel in order to justify this inevitability. This is even influenced in the characters' designs: Red only has four fingers and the likeness of a doll, and Kirk has one eye that's slightly larger than the other.
** With other objects, flow is proper. When Red's mine cart is airborne, her cape is flapping in the wind.
* NonActionGuy: The Wolf loses every fight he gets in, meaning he takes beatings from Red and from [[spoiler:Boingo]].
* NoodleIncident: Flippers remembers the Wolf from "three years ago on the Stiltskin case" when he was "snooping around for a lead on his real name". Those who know that Rumpelstiltskin was a con artist might have an easier time guessing what happened.
** Whatever happened 37 years ago that led to Japeth being cursed with the inability to talk, only sing, by a mountain witch
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Boingo arguably is this. [[BeneathSuspicion He seems like a decent rabbit]] who just happens to run into all four of the main characters on their separate journeys. Then it's revealed that this detail makes him the Bandit. When the Wolf is posing as an electrical inspector and talking to him, this dialogue occurs:
-->'''The Wolf:''' Let me level with you, you're an evil genius, right?
-->'''Boingo:''' Well, I don't know if I'd say "genius," you know. I was asked to join Mensa.
** GeniusBonus: As Mensa's website says that "potential members must score within the top 2% of any approved standardized intelligence test", Boingo has an IQ of at least 140 or higher.
* OddNameOut: See "names to run away from" above. The four guys on the ski team are Dolph, Lisa, Vincent... and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LliGvt3SMsw Keith]].
** Oh, and the officer pigs are Timmy, Tommy, and Glen.
* OffscreenCrash: The Wolf's fall into the river is like this in Red's story. We see Red hide in a tree trunk as the Wolf runs after her cloak (which is being flown by a few hummingbirds). As soon as the Wolf goes off-camera, there is a yell and a splash.
** Saying nothing of the car that drives into a tree after Red's magazine hits its windshield. We cut back to a close-up of Red's face and only hear screeching tires and a loud crash, accompanied by a tree in the distance shaking. [[SomebodyElsesProblem Red does not notice it, then continues musing as if nothing happened]].
* OffscreenTeleportation: When she arrives at the top tram terminal, Red is still hanging on to the side of the car and watching [[spoiler:Boingo]] and Dolph. They start walking away. She is not seen again until Boingo tells Dolph, "You ask yourself, 'Where do I see me in five years?'" and she replies, "How about behind bars?" at which point we see Red now standing at the bottom of the ramp, despite us not seeing her walking over from where she was hiding a moment earlier.
** Averted with the part of Red's encounter with the Wolf where she pepper-sprays him (and in the latter's story beats him up). As Red tells it, the Wolf obviously appears to have teleported. The Wolf's story shows that he does try chasing her on foot for a few moments, but [[RuleOfFunny catches a taxicab]] to overtake her.
* OhCrap:
** Red:
*** Her reaction to hearing the sound of a window being broken while up in the treehouse. She runs over and finds Granny's store has been broken into.
*** In the entire mine cart sequence, it appears Red is thinking this the whole journey. Once the avalanche hits, she turns around and sees that the cart is being chased by the snow slide into the tunnel. Her reaction is much more appropriate for the situation than Japeth's. Once inside the tunnel, Red screams preemptively as the cart speeds towards the dead ending track and goes airborne.
*** When she is bound, gagged, and wheeled on a dolly into a tram car packed with explosives.
** The Wolf:
*** When he chases Red's cape, and grabs it, to find that it's empty... prompting the camera to zoom way back to reveal that he [[GravityIsAHarshMistress is frozen in mid-air]]. He says "Oh, great. Not cool," then falls into the water below.
*** When he realizes that the candle Twitchy's just lit in the cart [[DynamiteCandle isn't actually a candle]]. "Lose the candle!"
** Kirk:
*** When he realizes the tree he is cutting down is about to fall on him. "Oh, schnitzel!" He is frozen like a DeerInTheHeadlights.
** Granny:
*** When she finds herself defenseless against the Bandit's henchmen during the ski race.
** Japeth's reaction to the avalanche in Red's mine cart ride. Since he can't scream, he goes, "Ohhhhh an avalanche is coming and I do not feel prepared / It's running like a mountain lion, I must say that I'm scared / But if not for the witch's spell you'd hear just how I scream / But since I'm only singing I'll just yodel 'til we're creamed!"
* {{Oktoberfest}}: Kirk's got a pretty thick German accent. It's kind of jarring considering that Red, the Wolf, and Granny all have American accents.
* OnlySaneMan: Red is this during the entire mine cart scene with Japeth.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: When introducing herself to Flippers, Red says she pretty much always wears her red cloak/cape thing. After her BrokenPedestal moment with Granny, she removes it. She is not seen wearing it again until when Granny uses it during the tramway rescue.
* PaperThinDisguise: The Wolf's disguises, like the one where he interviews the woodland snack shack owner with an alias name and also uses a neck brace to pretend that he burned his neck. Also the scene where the media scrum fail to recognize Red without her red cloak on, and instead charge off after a large male jogger wearing a red hoodie.
** The Wolf's attempt at impersonating Granny fails spectacularly. Despite the Granny mask and the apron and the falsetto voice, Red is GenreSavvy enough to tell the difference, but she doesn't point this out and plays along.
*** Compared to other versions of the story, this one is significantly improved.
** During the tramway terminal infiltration scene, Dolph is MuggedForDisguise, and Kirk is dressed to impersonate him - also wearing a ski mask so that [[spoiler:Boingo]] won't recognize him. Boingo gags Red and as he's finishing padlocking the door:
-->'''Kirk:''' ''[disguised as Dolph]'' Uh, Mr. Rabbit?
-->'''Boingo:''' Dolph! Where have you been?! You nimwitted Eurotrash with the, what is that, a ski mask?
-->'''Kirk:''' Uh, I, um, yah...
-->'''Boingo:''' I like that! See, ''that's'' scary. Yeah that's good.
-->'''Kirk:''' Um, b-boss...
-->'''Boingo:''' ''[exploding with impatience]'' WHAT?! Say it! Spit it out! What's goin' on?!
-->'''Kirk:''' Um... boss, uh, Paul's Bunion Cream has the soothing formula-
-->'''The Wolf:''' ''[interrupts, dressed as a utility worker]'' Hi there! What he means to say is that I'm the building inspector.
-->'''Kirk:''' Yah, yes!
-->'''The Wolf:''' I just need to tap the pipes; see if your wiring's up to par.
-->'''Boingo:''' Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Hold it, you're not... no, you can't touch anything in here.
-->'''The Wolf:''' ''[pauses]'' Let's walk.
** This second instance is played straight: for some odd reason, Boingo does not appear to notice that "Dolph" has A) a different body build and B) has suddenly grown a very long beard. Nor does he seem to recognize the Wolf in his electricians' disguise, which is strange considering that he met both Kirk and the Wolf on separate occassions over the previous day and their voices should still be fresh in his mind (as it has been no more than fourteen hours at most since those two meetings).
* PerspectiveFlip: The entire premise of the movie. Some scenes are visited twice, like Red's first encounter with the Wolf after she falls from the cable car, and use the exact same dialogue and actions, but small things are changed to show the characters' different perspectives. Both Red's and the Wolf's stories have Red pepper-spray the Wolf, but only in the Wolf's story does she beat him up. In Red's story, the shadows are longer, to reflect how frightened she is in the aftermath of her fall (with only beams of sunlight penetrating the trees, and the Wolf standing in the shadows), while the Wolf's story uses normal lighting in this scene.
* PensieveFlashback: When Red is retelling the confrontation at Granny's house to Flippers. After Flippers mistakenly asks if Kirk burst in right after the "what big facial qualities" part of the encounter, we cut right to that part of the scene. After a few seconds, flashback Red waves her hands and says, "No! No! Not yet!" All of the action then rewinds.
** A second later:
-->'''Nicky Flippers:''' And then the Axeman Cometh?
-->'''Red Puckett:''' You got it.
-->''(Inside the flashback, Kirk bursts through the window)''
-->'''Red Puckett:''' Only, he was ''screaming''.
-->'''Kirk:''' ''[weakly]'' Aargh?
-->'''Red Puckett:''' ''[sighs, exasperated]'' Like a maniac!
* PoliceLineup: The movie poster is one.
* {{Profiling}}: When Chief Grizzly insists on pinning the crime on Wolf, he sardonically says, "Ah, the Wolf did it. Talk about profiling."
* PunctuatedForEmphasis: Three.
** After the first conversation between Red and Flippers:
-->'''Chief Grizzly:''' Recipes have been going missing all over the forest, goody shops have been going out of business for months, and the trail. Ends. Here! I've got a case to close.
** When the Wolf says he can be called "Sheila:"
-->'''Chief Grizzly:''' Quit playing around, Wolf! You're looking at three to five in an old shoe with no windows! So start! Singing!
** Kirk's encounter with Boingo:
-->'''Boingo:''' Well chin up, mister! Maybe someday, someone will open up a great big goody shop, and we can all work for that. Little. Guy.
* QuirkyMinibossSquad:
* RaisedByWolves: The Wolf. (Naturally.) When he says this, [[CutawayGag a brief shot is shown of his family portrait]].
* RashomonStyle: Variation: The four accounts are all totally accurate (using literally the exact same animation from both the same and slightly different angles when they overlap), but thanks to ShownTheirWork, we still get a different impression from their limited perspectives: slightly different dialogue, different lighting (for instance, in the first encounter Red has with the Wolf, the trees cast bigger shadows in Red's story than they do in the Wolf's story), objects being positioned differently, and even different actions by the characters (Red's story does not include the part where she physically beats up the Wolf).
* RecordNeedleScratch: As a verse of the "Schnitzel Song" is about to begin while Kirk and the kids are waltzing along, cue whip-pan and needle scratch to show Kirk's truck sitting on cinder blocks and emptied of its equipment.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Just after the Wolf tries to assure a pesimistic Twitchy inside the cave, you can see a pair of big red eyes blink behind them, accompanied by a growling noise. The Wolf and Twitchy are chased into another cavern by unseen bats.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Boingo is well aware of his cuteness ''[[spoiler:and uses it to his advantage!]]'' He says that this is why running the cable car isn't a very bad job.
* RightBehindMe: During the fight in the tramway terminal, Granny uses this.
* RunningGag / BrickJoke: The blue sports car that [[ChronicallyCrashedCar keeps getting crashed]] by the main characters. First, Red wrecks one when she throws a magazine from the treehouse and it lands on the windshield, causing the driver to swerve and crash into a tree. But the main one is the porcupine driven one that has problems around trees - first by Kirk chopping one down, and later when Kirk and the Wolf, driving Kirk's converted truck, run into a tree, which gets uprooted.
** The pig who keeps reacting quizzically whenever Flippers uses food metaphors.
* RuleOfFunny: The Wolf catching a taxicab in the woods to chase Red? Yeah, pretty convenient to have a cab just ''happen'' to show up when he hails one.
** Also, Japeth's detachable horns.
** Red and Japeth's mine cart goes ''above'' the clouds after going off the dead-ending track. At what appears to be somewhere between 60-80 mph.
* SeriousBusiness: Snack shack owners are very protective of their recipe books. In fact, it's pretty clear that Granny's recipe book is treated by Red in the same that KFC treats the Colonel's Original Recipe (for the record, only two people know the complete recipe, only one knows the combination to the safe that the recipe is stored in, and a number of executives know partial segments; when it had to temporarily leave KFC headquarters in Louisville in September 2008, it had its own motorcade transport it). In the world where the movie is set, they act in a similar way to [[CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory Willy Wonka]]: these owners go out of business after their secrets are stolen (the result of espionage).
** Moreso. As several characters mention, "[[CatchPhrase Goodies make the woods go 'round.]]" It was also used in a deleted verse from Red's song "Great Big World". (The phrase itself is probably a take at the tile of a song in the original Universe of Energy at [[DisneyThemeParks Epcot]] called "Energy (You Make the World Go 'Round)")
* SkirtOverSlacks: In the first movie, Red wears a skirt over her pants. In the second movie, she ditches the skirt.
** It's kind of justified that Red is wearing long pants in the environment she is traveling in. Anyone who has lived or hiked in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, Montana or Wyoming (where the high alpine environments and vegetation are similar to the settings of the movie) knows that it's a good idea to wear pants to protect your knees from mosquito bites or avoid scraping your knees on rocks.
* ShortCutsMakeLongDelays: The Wolf and Twitchy trust Boingo with directions to Granny's house after Boingo says he knows a shortcut. Specifically, it's one that sends them into a flooded cave populated with hungry bats.
* ShoutOut:
** Lots of references are made to other classic fairy tale characters, their stories, and nursery rhymes.
*** {{Rumpelstiltskin}}: Flippers says upon seeing the Wolf, "I remember you! Three years ago on the Stiltskin case: you were snooping around for a lead on his real name." The Wolf matter-of-factly says, "I was close too. I was gonna go with Greg. Greg Stiltskin."
*** The Muffin Man: Never seen on-screen, but when Red runs into Boingo during her bike ride, he sadly states that his employer - the Muffin Man - was shut down last night by the Goodie Bandit. There's also a blink-and-you'll-miss-it shot of Boingo in the store holding a muffin tray out to a disguised Wolf.
*** Little Bo Peep: When the Wolf interviews his informant Woolworth, Woolworth describes Red as a "sweet gal, not like that Bo Peep. That brat put up an invisible fence, I tasted metal fillings for a week!"
*** "Over the River and Through the Wood": When the Wolf and Twitchy have their encounter with Boingo, Boingo says he knows a shortcut to Granny's house. He quotes this song's title, but he transposes the nouns ("Over the woods and through the river....No, you don't wanna go through the river. You'll get all wet.").
** ''{{Fletch}}''. Wolf dresses like, speaks like, uses the ''same exact disguises'' as, and even has the same ThemeSong, as Irwin Fletcher.
** ''{{XXX}}''. Grandma has 3 G's tattooed on the back of her neck, which Flippers says is appropriate because [[VinDiesel she has three strikes against her]].
** The scene where the Wolf questions Woolworth is an homage to ''Film/TheNakedGun''. It even directly lifts some of its dialogue.
** The "Use the Hood" moment when Granny appears to Red while her mine cart is flying through the sky has got to be an ''ANewHope'' reference.
*** Also in ''StarWars'' references: the scene where Twitchy and the Wolf fall into a hole while in the cave, and all you can see of Twitchy is his camera light, is similar to Luke and [=C3PO=]'s arrival on Dagobah in ''TheEmpireStrikesBack''.
** The Wolf knocking on Granny's door and identifies himself with "candygram" in the same way the Land Shark did in the SaturdayNightLive skit. Also a possible reference to the "Candygram for Mongo" scene in ''BlazingSaddles''.
** Twitchy's babbling leads the police to treat him like Lassie. "The well! Timmy's stuck in the well!"
** Twitchy reads the print on the side of a stick of dynamite: [[AChristmasStory "DEE-NA-MEE-TAY. Hmm, must be Italian]]".
** The sign over Japeth's shack (visible when Red is walking up the hill to the front porch) reads '''Pecos Mining Co.''', a clear reference to the mythical American cowboy Pecos Bill. The "Outpost 23" sign is not related.
** ''SongOfTheSouth'' is referenced in the hummingbirds who appear in "Great Big World".
** Many of the scenes in the cable car (Red's aborted ride up and also the life-and-death finale) nod to the German war film ''WhereEaglesDare''.
** Boingo says "But I'm top of the woods, now, baby!" which is a take on James Cagney's line "Made it, ma! Top of the world!" in ''WhiteHeat''.
** Red's fight with Boingo in the cable car loading dock is reminiscent of the training sequence between Neo and Morpheus in ''TheMatrix''. Especially with green monitors in the background.
** ''SaturdayNightFever'' is referenced in the concert that precedes the ski race.
* ShutUpHannibal: When Granny runs off to save Red, [[spoiler:Boingo]] tells her she doesn't trust her for keeping her double life a secret, but Granny just hit him on the head while still running.
* SlowMotionPassBy: Red glares, disgusted, at the Wolf as she leaves from her questioning and passes him, on the way to ''his'' questioning. To top it, there's an overdone dramatic soundtrack.
* SpeciesSurname: The Wolf's full name is Wolf W. Wolf. Hmm, [[SarcasmMode wonder what the middle W stands for]]. I'll bet it's also "Wolf".
** Most of the other animal characters:
*** Chief Ted Grizzly naturally has to be a grizzly bear.
*** Det. Bill Stork is definitely a stork.
*** Jimmy, the lizard who serves as the director at Kirk's audition, has the full name of Jimmy Lizard.
*** Nicky Flippers is a frog.
* StealthPun: When Boingo shows up during Red's bike ride, he says, "Nice outfit! Always red with you. You must be in autumn."
* [[spoiler:[[StoryboardingTheApocalypse Storyboarding The Forest's Destruction]] ]]: Literally done by [[spoiler:Boingo]] to Red with a slideshow presentation to demonstrate his plan.
* StorybookOpening: Literal one. Not only is it used to open the film itself, but also to open each character's story, by flipping backwards to a map and zooming in on a certain location. Red's and the Wolf's zoom in on the house at the lower left corner of the map, Kirk's goes to the building on the upper left corner, and Granny's goes to the cottage.
* StuffBlowingUp: At least the tram car explosion gave that fisherman a big break, given the number of fish that flop up on the shore. Earlier, the Wolf accidentally blows up a trestle that causes Red's mine cart to go airborne, due to Twitchy mistaking a stick of dynamite for a candle.
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: "Now, dear, if there are two things I don't do, it's lie, and play extreme sports."
* [[SwissArmyAppendage Swiss Army Horns]]: For Japeth, these, of all possibilities, as much as Red gets annoyed with his inability to stop singing about them. [[MemeticMutation He is prepared]], with sets that have: bottle openers, keychains, built-in TV remotes (though if he gets good reception up in the mountains is anyone's guess), jar openers, wigs, a set that functions as a coat rack for his other sets, garden tools, clothesline, the ability to cook s'mores and weiners, even a [[HeliCritter set that lets him FLY]].
* SupervillainLair: The tramway summit terminal is in a cave. Much of the space is occupied with the tram's electrical systems, the motor room, tensioning, and machinery. It functions as [[spoiler:Boingo]]'s lair.
* TakeOurWordForIt: When Red is browsing the travel magazine in the treehouse, whatever she's reading is so unsatisfying that she tosses it away when she says "The world is too dangerous for me!" The DisasterDominoes effect occurs as the magazine lands spread open on a passing car's windshield, startling the driver enough that he loses control and crashes into a tree.
* TalksLikeASimile: Nicky. Lampshaded by Chief Grizzly: "You're just fulla those, aren't ya?"
* TemptingFate: When Red is riding up the tram with Boingo:
-->'''Boingo:''' Hey, you deliver up this far?
-->'''Red Puckett:''' Not usually. But I was thinking about what you told me earlier - about the Muffin Man? I need to protect Granny's recipes from that bandit's evil plan. They're gonna shut down everyone in the forest if we're not careful. ''(The doors immediately fly open, and a few seconds later, Red falls, grabbing the basket as she goes over)''
** {{Foreshadowing}} example, when Kirk is talking with Boingo after finding his truck vandalized:
-->'''Kirk:''' I'm getting schnitzeled left and right today! I cannot even sell the bunion cream! Now I'm gonna lose my job!
-->'''Boingo:''' Well chin up, mister! Maybe someday someone will open up a great big goody shop, and we can all work for that little guy.
* TheAhnold: Dolph.
* [[ThisIsWhatTheBuildingWillLookLike This Is What The Forest Will Look Like Afterwards]]: Done by [[spoiler:Boingo]].
* ThrowItIn: Boingo's short rant regarding Keith's name was improvised. Some of Boingo's other lines were ad-libbed.
* TitleDrop: [[VillainSong 'You've been Hoodwinked, Baby!']]
* TraitorShot: It's only visible for a split second, but when Red is falling from the tram, you can see Boingo glaring down at her, with an expression of anger instead of one of concern. A FreezeFrameBonus if you notice that he grabs for her basket right before she falls.
* TropesForDummies: Kirk can't cut a tree with proper stance. Fortunately, he improves upon finding a copy of ''[[TropesForDummies Chopping for]] [[SelfDeprecation Actors]]'' ("Discover Your Inner Woodsman!")
* TooDumbToLive: The Wolf when Red distracts him so that she escapes from him. Once she beats him up and hands her cloak over to the hummingbirds, she hides in a tree and the Wolf takes the bait of following the cloak. Notice that he is ''completely'' oblivious to the fact that said cloak is ''floating'' and there are no human legs underneath it, plus its movement does not replicate the motions of a running person.
** Considering that she had just beaten him up and run from him, it would be no surprise if he's just disoriented or desperate to catch up with her.
* [[TooIncompetentToOperateABlanket Too Incompetent To Operate A Felling Axe]]: Kirk. Just look at how pathetic his first few attempts are. First, he tries holding his axe by the blade and hitting the tree with the handle, coming off looking like a complete idiot in the process. Then he tries forcing the blade against the tree like he's trying to split the tree down the middle. Finally, he's seen jamming it against the tree and trying to uproot it from the ground with his foot. Only once he reads ''[[TropesForDummies Chopping For]] [[SelfDeprecation Actors]]'' (it's the best book on the market if you want to know how to find your inner woodsman) does he get the hang of how to properly use the axe. Sure his stance improves, but it's not effective against 1,000 year old redwood trees.
* UncomfortableElevatorMoment: {{Lampshaded}} wonderfully by Stork when Red finds out that Granny is living a secret life as an extreme sports athlete:
-->'''Granny Puckett:''' Honey, don't look at your granny like that.

-->''({{Beat}})''
-->'''Det. Bill Stork:''' [[LampshadeHanging Awkward!]] ''[awkwardly side-steps out of the room]''
-->'''Granny Puckett:''' You're being ridiculous, Red.
-->'''Red Puckett:''' ''I'm'' being ridiculous?! You're off living... ''La Vida Loca'', risking your life for some dumb thrills! And I'm supposed to stay home and be your happy little delivery girl?!

* UnreliableNarrator: Everyone sees the events differently, a la ''Rashomon''. Somewhat subverted: no one is actually lying, they just have limited perspectives. This means that when two characters have overlapping encounters, you will notice many subtle and/or very obvious differences - lighting, dialogue, positions of objects, and characters' actions. For analysis, let's look at the Wolf's encounter with Red after she falls from the tramway:
** In Red's story, the trees cast very long shadows. Considering that she had just fallen about 50 to 100 feet from a moving tram car into an area she is probably not familiar with, she would be frightened. In the Wolf's story, the scene has more regular lighting.
** The sequence of Red's screams during the fall differ significantly between the two stories, but she still hits the same number of branches on the way down.
** In the Wolf's story, the tram car doors open and Red falls almost instantly. In Red's story, there's a five second interval between the moment the doors open and when she actually falls.
** The way Red sees it, the Wolf roars to frighten her. The Wolf is actually yelling in pain when his tail gets caught in Twitchy's camera as Twitchy is trying to fix it after coughing it up (having swallowed it accidentally after Red crashed through the tree branch Twitchy was on when she fell).
** In Red's story, after Twitchy lands and takes the accidental photo of her, she turns around and the Wolf has instantly appeared there. In the Wolf's story, he is still behind the bush when Twitchy does this, facepalms, and is just coming out from his hiding place when Red turns around.
** The Wolf overtakes Red by taking a taxi. In the middle of the forest.
** When the second part of the encounter happens, Red runs in a straight line after being scared into running. In the Wolf's story, she appears to take more of a zigzag course.
** Red gasps when the Wolf appears for the second time in the Wolf's story. In her story, she turns and this is accompanied by a ScareChord.
** When Red pepper-sprays the Wolf, their stories depart drastically.
*** Red's story: The Wolf steps out, asks to see what's in her basket. She pepper-sprays him, and runs.
*** The Wolf's story: he steps out as she approaches, and asks to see what's in her basket. She pepper-sprays him, beats him up, disables him with a spin kick, then gathers her heels and walks away.
* UnusualEuphemism: "Schnitzel" for "shit" when the tree starts to fall towards Kirk. Also used as a substitute when he finds his truck raided.
* UrbanFantasy: There are cars - a [[ChronicallyCrashedCar sports car]] and 1990s-style police cars. Also, there is a mix of cell phones and old-style telephones (Red uses a payphone early in her story, and also uses an old rotary phone when she is inside Japeth's shack, and Granny has a cell phone during the ski race).
* VerbedTitle
* VillainSong: "Top Of The Woods" for [[spoiler:Bongo, the Goodie Bandit]].
* VisualPun: [[AWolfInSheepsClothing Wolf disguises himself as a sheep in order to interrogate his paid informant, Woolworth.]]
** During the credits, you see a drawing of the Woodsman playing air guitar on his [[StealthPun axe]].
** At the ski race, "Granny wins by a landslide!" literally.
* WaifFu: Red is a proficient martial artist (she's a black belt and the region champion, and even has a photo of herself in a martial arts uniform on the wall in Granny's house). Too bad her moves are ineffective against rabbit ears.
* WaitingForABreak: The Woodsman sold schnitzel out of his truck as a day job while waiting to land his next role. At least, until someone stole his supplies and stripped his truck of its tires.
* WasItAllALie: Red found out about her Granny's double life. She felt betrayed because Granny never lets her do anything. Granny thought Red was happy and it was important that she [[PassingTheTorch deliver her goodies as their ancestors had done]]. Granny realized she deserves more in life.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: You have to wonder what would have happened had the Weinstein Company not ordered the recasting of a number of main characters' voices. In the finished film, Tara Strong has a bit role as Zorra, the fox on Granny's ski team. As the film was originally cast, she also voiced Red before AnneHathaway did. David Ogden Stiers voices Flippers, and also used to voice Kirk. The Edwards brothers' associate Tony Leech voiced Det. Bill Stork before Anthony Anderson. Emmy-winning actress Sally Struthers voiced Granny before Glenn Close did. Only a few of the original cast roles were kept when ExecutiveMeddling set in - such as Patrick Warburton as the Wolf and Andy Dick as Boingo.
** And Japeth almost got recast.
* [[WeNeedADistraction I Need a Distraction]]:
** Red's escape from the Wolf. First, she incapacitates him by pepper-spraying him (then beating him up), then runs. She comes upon a swarm of hummingbirds, and hands her cloak over to them. The birds fly the cloak away while Red hides in a tree. The Wolf takes the bait, chases the cloak, and falls into a river for his trouble.
** Granny escapes from the Bandit's henchmen during the ski race by setting off some charges that trigger an avalanche. [[BrickJoke Said avalanche also sweeps down the hill and nearly collects the mine cart Red and Japeth are riding in down below]].
* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: In a FreezeFrameBonus, when the Wolf is describing his column "Facts and Fairy Tales", the front page of an edition of ''The Once Upon a Times'' is shown. The tiny text "Woodland County Editon" can be seen in a border on the visible part of the page. Based on the trees and the alpine environments, the movie setting appears to be somewhere in the heart of the Rocky Mountains (the vistas, such as distant ones in Red's treehouse scene, look like what you might see in Yellowstone or Rocky Mountain National Parks).
* WhiteBunny: Boingo
* YouCantMissIt / WhenLifeGivesYouLemons: The directions Boingo gives the Wolf to Granny's house.
-->'''The Wolf:''' You know how to get there?
-->'''Boingo:''' Oh, yeah. Yeah, in fact, I know a shortcut.
-->'''The Wolf:''' ''[to Twitchy, incredulous]'' You hear that? He knows a shortcut.
-->'''Boingo:''' You go over the woods and through the river... no, you don't wanna go through the river. You'll get all wet.
-->'''The Wolf:''' You see, Twitchy, [[WhenLifeGivesYouLemons you get lemons, you make lemonade]]...
-->''[Cuts to the Wolf and Twitchy walking in ankle-deep water through a pitch-black tunnel; Twitchy turns on his camera light for additional illumination]''
-->'''The Wolf:''' ...and then that lemonade goes bitter, and ferments, and turns to pig-swill. Never trust a bunny with directions, Twitchy.
-->'''Twitchy:''' Sure thing, boss! Never trust a bunny!
** Moments later:
-->'''The Wolf:''' We are in a pickle, and I blame myself. That bunny was worthless, not to mention he wrote the directions on an '''Easter Egg''' ''[holds up a brightly colored Easter egg with illegible text scribbled on the side]'' which is ''very'' hard to read.
* YouGetMeCoffee: Keith receiving an order to change his name to Boris because that's a scarier name.

!!The sequel contains examples of:
* AncientTradition: The Sister of the Hood.
* AnythingButThat: "Not broccoli!"
* AsYouKnow: Verushka to Granny while explaining her FreudianExcuse.

But the main one is the porcupine driven one that has problems around trees - first by Kirk chopping one down, and later when Kirk and the Wolf, driving Kirk's converted truck, run into a tree, which gets uprooted.
