* CommonEyeColors: Mumble is the only one with blue eyes, besides the elders, who have blue, green, and hazel. The normal population has amber/brown.
** CartoonyEyes: Mumble's icy blue eyes is actually a reference to his voice actor, Elijah Wood. (But see Uncanny Valley.)

''Happy Feet'' is a [[AllCGICartoon CGI]] film from 2006 2006. It was the feature debut of animation studio Animal Logic and the first animated film to be directed by Creator/GeorgeMiller. Winner of the Best Animated Feature Oscar in 2007.
Creator/GeorgeMiller.



Notable for being one of the darker animated family films of the MilleniumAgeOfAnimation (not that [[TrailersAlwaysLie the advertisements would have tipped you off]]) and is often compared favorably to ''Literature/WatershipDown'', both in it's 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.

''Happy Feet'' subverts several of the tropes common to the genre (like Creator/RobinWilliams). Some fans find it to be in the same fashion as ''WatershipDown'', as it tells its story entirely from the animals' point of view among other things.

* FollowTheLeader: While not a criticism of the film itself, as it was in production since 1997, the release of ''Film/MarchOfThePenguins'' wasn't at all an inconvenience.

** Erik's talent turns out to be [[spoiler:opera...just like another famous [[Literature/ThePhantomOfTheOpera Erik]]]]. Also, Mumble's mother is named "Norma Jean," which was MarilynMonroe's birth name.
* MistakenForAfterlife: [[spoiler: An inversion of the trope's usual form - when Mumble wakes up in the zoo enclosure, the other penguins tell him he's now in heaven, but he doesn't agree. (It's a environment tailored to their comfort, safe from predators and with a guaranteed food supply - from their point of view, it couldn't be better.)]]
