** To get the gag about the frogs singing "Live and Let Die" at the king's funeral, one needs to a) recognise the theme of a [[Film/LiveAndLetDie 1973 James Bond]] film as being a Music/PaulMcCartney song and b) also be aware of [=McCartney=]'s role in the 1984 animated film ''[[ComicStrip/RupertBear Rupert]] and the Frog Song'' (and associated Frog Chorus single). It's not exactly one for the kids.

* YankTheDogsChain: Justified due to being a NightmareSequence. The boat Shrek, Donkey and Puss are taking to find Arthur seems to crash at Shrek's swamp, much to his joy, but after he is lured into the swamp by Fiona's voice, things take a turn for the worse when it turns out to be filled with TooManyBabies.
