''Animalympics'' is an animated film produced by Steven Lisberger (who would later create ''{{Tron}}'' for Disney). The film was originally conceived as a pair of specials for Creator/{{NBC}} to air during the 1980 UsefulNotes/OlympicGames (one for the Summer Games and one for the Winter Games), but the American boycott of the Summer games that year put the kibosh on those plans. Lisberger's studio instead released ''Animalympics'' in theaters as a single feature film.

* AbsurdlySpaciousSewer: Where Bolt Jenkins grew up. Hey, you can go jogging down there!



* AllAsiansKnowMartialArts: Played straight by Bruce Kwakimoto. Kind of averted by Ono Nono because he's a tsunami-causing orca. (Then again, we don't know for sure if Ono Nono doesn't happen to know martial arts, too.)



* BoxingKangaroo: One of the participants in the boxing match. Of course. Billy Crystal voices him mimicking Muhammad Ali.

to:

* BilingualBonus: Mark Spritz. "Spritzen" is German and means things that, for example, water can do like "to squirt" or "to splat".
* BoxingKangaroo: One Joey Gongolong, one of the participants in the boxing match. Of course. Billy Crystal voices him mimicking Muhammad Ali.



* CarnivoreConfusion:
** The Animalympics were actually introduced as an alternative to preying upon one another.
** Then again, Bolt Jenkins is sponsored by Toasted Gecko Flakes. He's even a reptile himself.



* CurbStompBattle: The boxing match, which goes thus: The kangaroo hops around the bull a few times, then taunts him by kissing his nose. The bull then grabs the kangaroo by the neck and punches him in the face, sending him spinning into the ropes. The kangaroo then spins back out and catapults himself back at the bull, hitting him in the gut. Then the kangaroo lands a punch to the nose, then to the top of the head. Two more jabs to the nose and an uppercut later, the match is over. The bull was knocked out, the kangaroo only took one hit.

to:

* ChopSockey: Bruce Kwakimoto's floor exercises are that.
* CurbStompBattle: The boxing match, which goes thus: The kangaroo Joey Gongolong hops around the bull Janos Brushteckel a few times, then taunts him by kissing his nose. The bull Brushteckel then grabs the kangaroo Gongolong by the neck and punches him in the face, sending him spinning into the ropes. The kangaroo Gongolong then spins back out and catapults himself back at the bull, Brushteckel, hitting him in the gut. Then the kangaroo Gongolong lands a punch to the nose, then to the top of the head. Two more jabs to the nose and an uppercut later, the match is over. The bull Brushteckel was knocked out, the kangaroo Gongolong only took one hit.



** Lampshaded by Kit's "strategy" (take an early lead and break Rene's concentration).

* KickTheDog: One of the commentators isn't afraid of letting the loser of the boxing match know that he's let down his coach, family, country, and ''himself''. The bull actually starts ''crying''.

** Bolt Jenkins is based on John Travolta. "Go For It" makes it a bit more obvious.



** Mark Spritz is Mark Spitz as a dolphin.
** Joey Gongolong is Muhammad Ali as a kangaroo.



* OneSteveLimit: Averted by the two African athletes Kit Mambo (female) and Kit Ngogo (male). Both are even feline runners.



* PlayfulOtter: Dean Wilson.

to:

* PlayfulOtter: Dean Wilson. Platform diving becomes a DisneyActionSequence when he does it, and instead of drowning in the Ono Nono-caused tsunami, he switches from swimming to surfing.

** And the surfer-dude otter, whose name, while [[AerithAndBob mundane-sounding]] on the surface (compared to other characters), is a ShoutOut to TheBeachBoys.

* UpToEleven: The whole frigging movie. Examples:
** Bolt Jenkins breaks the high jump record at a height of 23.7 meters.
** While he's at it, he proceeds with breaking the pole vault record at a hight of 48 meters.
** The diving platform is probably even higher than that. One could think that it takes Dean Wilson the length of a surf rock song to fall all the way down if Primo Cabeza didn't manage that within seconds.
** The 100 meter dash is actually a drag race.
** The marathon goes over thousands of kilometers and takes several days.
** Ono Nono is mentioned to weigh some 200 tons.
** You think Kurt Wuffner skiing down a vertical wall on a mountain is over the top? Well, watch him ski down an overhang, like, upside-down!
** A scoring example: Boardeaux gets 10 points for [[CurbStompBattle curb-stomping]] Csardas who ends up with only 1 point. After the Contessa swoops in and wipes the floor with Boardeaux, she gets 100 points.



* WheelOfFeet: During the 100 Meter Dash, the contestants first show this, then [[UpToEleven take on the characteristics of drag-racing cars]]--complete with arms turning into exhaust pipes, bodies into engines, and releasing parachutes to stop them.
