** Hogarth and the Giant's cannonballs at the lake.


Added DiffLines:

* TrailerJokeDecay: Subverted with the scene of Hogarth and the Giant making their respective cannonballs into the lake. It was in all of the commercials and has since been quoted and re-enacted by pretty much every kid who saw it to the point of being a BottomOfTheBarrelJoke. However, the joke's actual punchline manages to keep it as one of the funniest scenes in the movie.

** In the Norwegian dub, Hogarth saying "Oh my God!" at the dinner table is even funnier as said phrase in Norwegian ("Herregud") is a cuss word, making Annie's confused expression even more understandable. And then Hogarth says "Satan", which in Norwegian is almost as bad as saying "Fuck". That they were even allowed to keep it is hilarious.

* {{Woolseyism}}: At the climax, Mansley says after [[spoiler:launching the nuke]] [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere "Screw our country! I wanna live!"]] before failing at escaping and getting arrested. In the Spaniard dub, he instead says "¡A la mierda el país, yo quiero vivir!" which translates to [[PrecisionFStrike "Fuck]] this country, I wanna live!", making it even more hilarious.

* ValuesDissonance: A child walking into a adult man's house alone in the middle of the night and later being left alone with a different grown male stranger, both things viewed very differently today than the time period the film is set in. The fact the interrogation scene with the second stranger is vaguely, if unintentionally, rapacious only makes it worse.

* AwesomeArt: The traditional animation is some of the best to come out of a non-Disney animated film, but special mention goes to the giant, who, apart from being masterfully animated, had a special software developed for him to give him natural imperfections, helping him blend flawlessly into the 2D art.

** Though, to be fair, given the sheer amount of on-board of weaponry he's carrying, he's highly unlikely to have been sent out by a benevolent force.

* AwardSnub: Given its tremendous critical acclaim, it appeared eligible to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, but unfortunately didn't.
