* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Wallace's ParrotExpowhat to Wendoline when she says [[spoiler:Preston]] is malfunctioning. Does he not know what the word malfunctioning means or is he just confused as to why Wendoline was using it to refer to [[spoiler:her dog]]?



* FridgeBrilliance: Wallace's ParrotExpowhat to Wendoline when she says [[spoiler:Preston]] is malfunctioning actually works in two different ways.
** On the one hand, you'd expect an inventor like Wallace to know what the word "malfunction" means, until you remember that he's an amateur and most likely has no engineering experience more formal than tinkering in his basement.
** On the other hand, he might not have been unfamiliar with the word, so much as just confused as to why Wendoline was using it to refer to [[spoiler:her dog]].

* NoSuchThingAsBadPublicity: Would you believe that the series' popularity in America started entirely from a (minor) scandal over this film? During a publicity tour, Nick Park accidentally left two puppets in the back of a New York taxi, sending the British press into a panic. The American press, confused as to what the big deal was, looked into it and, as a result, brought the duo to the attention of the United States, who bought 2 million copies of the first three films on video cassette by year's end.

* NauseaFuel: Wallace getting covered form head-to-toe in machine-gun porridge. For some, it looks less like porridge and more like vomit.
