* MassOhCrap: The audience after Darla accidentally exposes her true self over the microphone. L.B. Mammoth and Flannigan take it the hardest since they were the ones who fired the animals for the destruction to the studio. Hearing the truth really left them [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone dumbstruck and horrified]] of their actions.

* FantasticRacism: Humans towards animals. The whole movie can be interpreted as an allegory for the prejudice and marginalization African-American actors and singers faced in the 1930s and 40s in Hollywood.

That said, [[spoiler: once Danny and friends do finally get the opportunity to demonstrate their talents, the human audience gives uproarious applause and the animals are catapulted to the stardom they wanted for so long.]]

''Cats Don't Dance'' is a 1997 film, and one of only two made by Turner Entertainment's animation unit before Creator/WarnerBros took over (the other being ''WesternAnimation/ThePagemaster.)'' The film was choreographed by Creator/GeneKelly, and the main character was based on him as well. Kelly died in 1996 mid-production.

* DanceOff: NaiveNewcomer Danny and IceQueen Sawyer conduct one of these during an impromptu talent show near Mammoth Studios, complete with TrashCanBand. Tillie's hip toss sends Sawyer reeling into the spotlight, where she takes a few blithe steps and poses. "Not bad," comments Danny, "A little rusty, but hey, who's perfect?" Giving Danny a DeathGlare, Sawyer snarls, "I'll give you rusty." The two FunnyAnimal felines then take turns out-stepping each other, culminating in a pirouette and dip finale ... and an AlmostKiss.

*** For a bonus, most of Darla's characterization is inspired by a Shirley Temple rumor from back in the day... that instead of being a sweet little girl, she was really [[spoiler:a 30-year-old chain-smoking midget who hated children and animals]].
