* CallOfTheWildBlueYonder: Cornelius has a dream of flight, which leads him to pen diagrams and construct a scale model of a "Flapper Wingamathing". He doesn't get the chance to build one, though, as the tragic events of the story intervene. Cornelius's three young pupils, however, construct the device out of necessity, and it works. The end credits show Cornelius aboard his invention with the young 'uns operating it.

'''''Once Upon a Forest''''' is a [[TheRenaissanceAgeOfAnimation 1993]] animated film with an environmental theme, released on by TwentiethCenturyFox. Based on the Furlings characters created by Rae Lambert, it was directed by Charles Grosvenor and produced by David Kirschner, [[HeAlsoDid the creator of the]] ''WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail'' and ''Film/ChildsPlay'' franchises. It was made by Creator/HannaBarbera in association with HTV Cymru. The film tells the tale of three forest denizens that go on an expedition to cure their friend, Michelle, who became sick from chemical fumes which leak into the forest due to human carelessness. But unlike many of the [[GreenAesop Green Aesops]] of the era, the humans are portrayed as redeemable in the end. Contains many scenes which can be considered NightmareFuel especially for a G-rated film, and plenty of TearJerker moments as well.

* WackyWaysideTribe: The furlings' quest to find the herbs rivals a {{Redwall}} book in the amount of random encounters they keep having. None of them (except for perhaps the birds) get them any closer to finding a new meadow.

* DeadlyGas: After the tanker truck runs over the glass shards and blows out its tires, the gas contained in the tank begins leaking out and starts killing everything. It's supposed to be chlorine gas, and the creators have ShownTheirWork in that inhaling it can be severely damaging to the lungs and eyes, as what happened to poor Michelle.
