* LoveAtFirstNote: This is the "usual way" Emperor Penguins find their mates. This sort of makes sense as their society revolves around singing as their main way of expression, communication and religious worship.

* LifeImitatesArt: In 2011, an emperor penguin was found on a Peka Peka beach, on New Zealand northwest coast. The public was quick to dub the lost bird "Happy Feet Jr."Like his namesake, the bird was taken in by Wellington Zoo, rehabilitated, and released back into the wild affixed with a satellite tracking device.

Notable for being one of the darker animated family films of TheMillenniumAgeOfAnimation (not that [[TrailersAlwaysLie the advertisements would have tipped you off]]) and is often compared favorably to ''Literature/WatershipDown'', both in its tone and the fact that it's entirely from an animal's point of view. It was also a groundbreaker in MotionCapture technology: while most of the character animation was done by animators, all of the dancing was mocapped from legendary tap dancer Savion Glover.

Added DiffLines:

* StealthPun: The penguins use the term "backsliding" several times. This is a real term used to refer to a relapse into sinful behavior, and was probably used because penguins are known for sliding on their bellies, therefore "back-sliding" would be a defiance of the natural way of things.

The protagonist of the film, a male emperor penguin named Mumble,cannot sing like all others of his colony, but he can tap dance. (Because his father Memphis dropped him as an egg, as he admits in an anguished public confession.) Separated from his colony, Mumble meets the Adelie Amigos, who later help him on a quest to get the fish back from "[[HumansAreCthulhu aliens]]" after he was thrown out of the Emperor Penguin colony by the elders.
