** Most notably is when Gromit is standing under a door to hold it up as Wallace is sawing through it. This was the scene that convince Nick Park not to have Gromit speak because of how expressive his eyebrow was.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The first short was much more surreal than all of the others. The character designs aren't quite fully developed (check out the shape of Wallace's head!) and cartoony jazz riffs run in place of the usual orchestral soundtrack of later films. It's also the only time Gromit makes any kind of vocalizations, albeit just wimpers and grunts.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The first short To date, the only major installment of the series which isn't an {{homage}} to a film genre (though WordOfGod is that the rocket was much more heavily inspired by Creator/JulesVerne), instead it's just a surreal than all of little film about a guy who randomly decides to build a rocket in his basement and go to the others. moon to get cheese, with no indication that he's a regular inventor. The character designs aren't quite as fully developed (check out the shape of Wallace's head!) and cartoony Julian Nott's score is comprised mostly of jazz riffs run in place of and ragtime rather than the usual orchestral soundtrack brass band music of the later films. It's also the only time Gromit makes any kind of vocalizations, albeit just wimpers and grunts.

** Everything relating to Cheese, according to Wallace.
** Likewise, he finds the idea of eating Cheese ''without'' Crackers completely unthinkable.

* BlessedAreTheCheesemakers: Wallace's cheese obsession. The producers have great fun referencing the most bizarre and obscure cheese names possible. This namedropping, in fact, ''saved Wensleydale cheese'', which was on the cusp of disappearing before Wallace and Gromit [[TheRedStapler created a new demand for it]]. Creator Nick Park was actually unaware of the financial difficulties of the cheese makers. He simply selected Wensleydale because the name was fun to say and animate.

** Doubles as OrphanedReference: it was the last remaining character from a much more expansive cast when the short originally had the duo going to a restaurant on the moon. The robot was a parking meeter attendant.
