* TakeThat: Charles Muntz was named after Charles Mintz, a Universal Pictures executive who in 1928 stole Walt Disney's production rights to his highly-successful "Oswald the Lucky Rabbit" cartoon series. This led Disney to create Mickey Mouse, who soon eclipsed Oswald in popularity. By the time ''Up'' hit theaters, "Oswald" for the most part was back in Disney's hands.

* TakeThat: Averted. While there is a persistent and refuted rumor Charles Muntz was named after Charles Mintz, a Universal Pictures executive who in 1928 stole Walt Disney's production rights to his highly-successful "Oswald Pixar hasn't included him among the Lucky Rabbit" cartoon series. This led Disney to create Mickey Mouse, who soon eclipsed Oswald in popularity. By the time ''Up'' hit theaters, "Oswald" various inspirations for the most part was back in Disney's hands.Muntz.

''Up'' is Creator/{{Pixar}}'s tenth film and their first full-length [[UsefulNotes/ThreeDMovie 3-D film]]. It has the honor of being only the second animated film to be nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars, following ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast''; it's also the first fully-CGI film to be honored with the nomination. While the film didn't win ''that'' award, it did get Pixar another Oscar for Best Animated Feature Film, as well as the Oscar for Best Original Score for composer Michael Giacchino.

** When Carl hits a construction worker on the head with his cane, the worker sustains a serious injury and Carl has to face legal consequences.

* RealityIsUnrealistic: Don't think the sleazy developer could manipulate the legal system to get Carl's house? [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kelo_v._City_of_New_London Sadly, you'd be wrong]]. And thanks to eminent domain, he wouldn't have had to wait for Carl to lose his temper.

Added DiffLines:

** In the opening newsreel, Muntz is revealed to have lots of dogs and technology for them. [[spoiler:When the dogs first appear in South America, the fact that their collars allow them to speak is an early clue as to who their master is before he appears.]]
** When Beta and Gamma start laughing at Alpha's squeaky voice, he suggests that they may be attempting to challenge his rank. Beta denies this but jokingly suggests that Dug would. [[spoiler:Dug becomes the new Alpha at the end of the film after trapping Alpha using the Cone of Shame]].


Added DiffLines:

** Also the construction boss, who never says a word or makes a sound in either scene he appears in.

* ArtisticLicenseOrthinology: Averted. Kevin displays very bird-like mannerisms and motion. Even her cartoon-ostrich-like habit of swallowing odd objects is a JustifiedTrope: she's foraging for food [[spoiler:to take back to her babies]], and isn't sure if these new objects (Carl's cane, the balloons) are edible or not. When she realizes they aren't food, she quickly spits them out - [[CrowningMomentOfFunny usually at Carl's feet]].
