* FurryReminder: While the animals are fully clothed and live in furnished apartments, they occasionally do quite animalistic things, like [[JabbaTableManners ravenously eating their food]] and growling and hissing at each other as they argue. Their dual nature is a major theme in the film.

''Fantastic Mr. Fox'' is a 2009 animated family film centered upon the eponymous character's attempt to go straight, renouncing his chicken-stealing ways. It is filmed in stop motion as director Creator/WesAnderson's first foray into animation. Including an all star cast, it has reviewed well, containing Creator/WesAnderson's indie mannerism and introspective tone, along with real charm and his trademark dysfunctional family.

* {{Retraux}}: Blatantly so. Much of the animation takes inspiration from early pioneers of stop motion, such as Willis O'Brian and Creator/RayHarryhausen, and they even intentionally add imperfections to the fur, which is similar to a more unintentional instance in Film/KingKong.

* StylisticSuck: Yes and no. The visuals aren't meant to look "bad" so much as "amateurish." The characters are designed in a way that allows for visible chatter[[note]]Stop-motion speak for something (usually dust or fabric) appearing to jitter when it's been accidentally moved between frames[[/note]] and the sets and special effects are dressed to emphasize their artificiality.

* MyGirlIsNotASlut: Heavily implied that before she settled down with Mr. Fox, Mrs. Fox very much averted this.
-->'''Kylie:''' (''In response to a comment made by Rat'') The town tart?\\
'''Fox:''' Shut up.
** Considering the slang "foxy" is an adjective used to describe a beautiful and sensuous woman, is this really any surprise?

* MyGirlIsNotASlut: Heavily implied Rat tries to push Fox's buttons by saying his wife was "the town tart" back in the day. Fox is a bit rattled to have it brought up in front of his friend, but [[AvertedTrope doesn't try to deny it]] and even objects to the DoubleStandard that's implied... suggesting that before she settled down with Mr. Fox, Mrs. Fox very much averted this.

* FurryConfusion: So you have a dazzling array of anthropomorphic animals who act exactly like humans but this is unknown by the humans, despite them driving motorbikes and the like. And then you have the actual birds which they eat. Maybe just mammals are intelligent? But then you have the farmers' dogs and horses and [[spoiler:the wolf who looks like an actual wolf.]]
