* The fact that there's an entire magazine dedicated to people going on holiday looking for cheese.
* Gromit's attempt to use a power drill.
* If you look closely, you'll notice they have a [[Film/CitizenKane sled named Rose Bud]] in their basement.
* [[SeriousBusiness "No crackers Gromit! We've forgotten the crackers!"]] ''*DUN-DUN! DUN! DUN!*''
* Rats with sunglasses.
* ''*creepy space noises*... *toast*''
* The robot gluing a piece of cheese back.
* The cooker robot trying to take down Wallace from behind with a truncheon, only to run out of change inches from his head. Gromit's boggled expressions throughout only make it funnier.
* The fact that the moon robot literally has to tune in his own thought bubbles.
* On their first moments on the moon, Wallace kicks a ball into the air...it never comes down. During the credits [[CreditsGag you see it]] [[BrickJoke spinning through space.]]
* Gromit forgetting to turn off the brake on the rocket as it prepares to take off.
* Wallace making the "take off" sound while scribbling in flames under the rocket like an excited child.
** Before that, Wallace is sitting deep in thought at the drawing board, flipping over several pages of rejects... only for the viewer to see that he's just been playing ''Tic-Tac-Toe'' against himself the entire time.
** Wallace sawing up a door to use as part of the rocket. Not only is he sitting ON TOP of it while sawing, he accidently saws through the pummelhorse its on by accident and makes Grommit be the replacement.
* The britishly homey way Wallace decorated the interior of the rocket, complete with floral wallpaper, tiny little watercolor paintings and lounge chairs.
* Grommit building a ''house of cards'' to pass the time. Not exactly the kind of high precision work you want to engage in during a bumpy spaceflight.

* The premise alone! Just try saying it out loud without cracking up at it's sheer lunacy.
** In particular, the very idea of a criminal penguin (complete with chicken disguise!) as the villain.
* "Cracking toast, Gromit!"
* Gromit threatens Feathers [=McGraw=] with a rolling pin. Feathers pulls out a revolver. [[OhCrap Gromit instantly throws his arms up.]]
* Wallace's wild race around the town in the techno-trousers, controlled by Feathers [=McGraw=]. Particularly the shot of Gromit looking at a poster in the foreground, when Wallace suddenly whizzes past in the background, trying and failing to hang onto a lamppost, yelling for Gromit, who then looks around as if to say, "Somebody call my name?"
** The shot immediately afterwards as Wallace continues to hyper power-walk down the street, arms flailing, is a masterpiece of deliberately awkward animation.
* "It's [[TitleDrop the wrong trousers]], Gromit! [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment And they've gone wrong!]]"
* Five words: [[WantedPoster "Have you seen this chicken?"]] [[PaperThinDisguise The "chicken" is a penguin with a red rubber glove on its head]]. Calling the disguise "paper-thin" is a little too generous.
** Wallace takes a while to cotton on, [[CloudCuckoolander despite being kidnapped by him]]: 'Good grief! It's you!?' Even Gromit the [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Dog]] looks genuinely surprised when Feathers drops his 'act'.
* Wallace removes a painting of a piggy bank to reveal a safe... [[ShapedLikeItself with a piggy bank in it]].
* "Dog Reads Paper". And below it: "Sheep Found Guilty".
* Wallace balancing on the train. In the Techno-Trousers. And later in just his vest and underpants.
** The entire train chase (on a toy train, no less) is three minutes of pure hilarity. The best part has to be Gromit laying down track rapid-fire as they go.

* Throughout the entire short, the musical cues just up the ante and make every ludicrous action seem incredibly dramatic. Sweeping melodramatic soap opera music as Wallace gets swept away from his beloved by a herd of sheep. Salutary flying ace music as Gromit bombards Preston's truck with a porridge cannon. Huge, overblown dramatic cues for mundane things. And of course, as mentioned below, the greatest scene in cinema history.
* Wallace and a bunch of sheep break Gromit out of prison by forming a tower. Then Wallace steps on a bar of soap, falls to the ground, and looks up at the sheep as they fall on top of him.
** Wallace and the entire herd of sheep are chasing Preston's truck, all on ''one'' motorcycle. Wallace yells for them to "get yourselves organised down there!". A moment later, Preston does a double-take as he looks in the side-mirror and see the sheep and Wallace in a perfect jet-ski style formation on the motorbike.
** Then Preston decides to try and scrape them off by going under a viaduct, only for (in a sort of inverted ImpactSilhouette) the sheep to quickly rearrange themselves into a horseshoe-shaped formation so they all fit through the hole.
* The porridge scene where the porridge keeps hitting Wallace until Gromit shuts it off.
* Wallace goes through an epic ''Series/{{Thunderbirds}}'' style sequence to get into his window washing gear...and then Gromit just walks through the door into the garage and rolls his eyes.
* Wallace seeing his new sheep with no fleece left and deciding to name him Shaun.
* "We tested [the Wash-O-Matic] on Gromit. Haven't we, lad?" Gromit nods despairingly.
* Preston grabbing the propellor of Gromit's plane when it comes at him, causing everything ([[LettingTheAirOutOfTheBand even the music]]) to stop for a full second before the plane starts spinning violently, catapulting Gromit out.
** Doubles as a CallBack to the power drill scene in ''AGrandDayOut''.

!!A Matter of Loaf and Death
* [[CaptainObvious "Oh, Gromit! It's a bomb!"]]
** "[[ItMakesSenseInContext Gromit! There's a bomb in my pants!]]"
** "Well done, Wallace! Sharp as a brick!"
* "I'm not a fruitcake, am I, lad?" [[SilentSnarker Gromit]] just taps him on the shoulder.
* "Are you still ballooning?"

!![[VideoGame/WallaceAndGromitsGrandAdventures Grand Adventures]]
* A little moment near the end of episode one, where Wallace calmly notes that the car's autopilot is broken... [[OhCrap Only to quickly realize that it's the autopilot to]] ''[[OhCrap the moving car he's in]]''.
-->'''Wallace''': [[TemptingFate We've made it through this little episode in one piece]]! More than I can say for the autopilot I'm afraid... [[ExplainExplainOhCrap AGH! The autopilot]]!

!!Cracking Contraptions
* The Autochef malfunctioning, babbling and then saying a single word before exploding.
* The Turbo Diner is a heavy electricity draining mechanism that creates an exquisite meal. Unfortunately it straps the duo into their chairs as a safety precaution and then runs out of power just before releasing them.

* A LOT of Gromit's facial expressions.
* In one advert they did, Wallace's idea of light holiday reading is ''[[Literature/FiftyShadesOfGrey Fifty Shades of Greyhound]]''.
