* AnimationAgeGhetto: Averted. It ''very'' obviously not for children, both in it's content and art style. Luckily, critics caught on and loved it.
* AwardSnub: Subverted. It lost to ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo'', which is by no means a slouch.
** Supposedly, Andrew Stanton felt so guilty that he nixed an early idea of using French cabaret music in ''WesternAnimation/WallE'' so as not to seem like a sore winner.
* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: The main theme, "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8dAOP1p_FtQ Belleville Rendez-Vous]]," was nominated for Best Song. It's about as far from typical OscarBait as you can imagine. Did I mention it's performed on ''bicycle wheels and vacuum cleaners?!''
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rJ8pazNEQeY Cabaret Hoover]] Benoît Charest wrote a song using only a refrigerator, a vacuum cleaner, and a newspaper; [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome because he wanted to see if he could!]]
* GeniusBonus: In the beginning of the movie, when they're watching TV, there's an equation in the bottom of the screen. These are Einstein's Field Equations and represent the gravitational effects produced by a given mass.
