** Having been falsely convicted of the sheep rustling by the real culprit [[spoiler:Preston]] and sentenced to life in prison, Grimit receives a gift of a jigsaw puzzle in his cell. Upon seeing it's a puzzle of a flock of sheep, he cracks at the unfairness of it all and sobs, banging his fist against the box. In the next scene, his eyes are still wet with tears as he puts the puzzle together.

* CivilizedAnimal: Gromit is usually depicted as walking upright, and is capable of creating and operating complex machinery. Generally he's shown to be ''significantly'' more shrewd and sensible than his master. However, despite all of this, everyone treats him the same as you treat ''any'' dog.

* DarkerAndEdgier: Unrequited love, sheep rustling, blackmail, [[spoiler: attempted murder, implied ''actual'' murder]]... and WordOfGod says that it was originally supposed to be ''even darker!'' Of corse, because this is Wallace & Gromit, it's all played as ridiculously as possible.

* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Walice's first scene with Wendonlie is the first time he's ever shown actually contemplating the outcome of his actions, as opposed to his usual devil-may-care attitude with Gromit or one of his inventions. It's the first sign that he has feeling for her.

* PunnyName: Shaun rhymes with "shorn" (as in "sheared") in non-rhotic varieties of English. The DVDCommentary has an amusing bit of Nick Park trying helplessly to say it with an American accent.

* AnimationBump: While not as huge a difference between ''WesternAnimation/AGrandDayOut'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheWrongTrowsers'', the puppets are noticeably better-constructed and the character animation is subtler. This short also ratchets up the scope of things, including animating large flocks of sheep and extensive outdoor scenes. It was also the first installment of the series to have computer effects, used here to digitally remove the rig that helped Gromit's plane fly.
