Fridge / Cats Don't Dance

Fridge Brilliance
  • At the end it shows Darla working as a janitor, still as a child. Lax child labor laws, or is Darla Really 700 Years Old?
  • In the last song, "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now," Darla inadvertently makes their performance big AND loud—exactly what she was preaching to Danny a few scenes ago.
  • As pointed out multiple times, this film is a great big metaphor for the hard times minorities faced when trying to get into film. This makes you wonder how minorities are treated in this universe. Then at the film premiere at the end, you can see plenty of black audience members. They're not being forced to sit in separate seats; they're sitting right alongside the white audience members with no trouble whatsoever. It's possible in this universe, the humans, being forced to live alongside anthropomorphic animals that are radically different from them, were able to get over their prejudice against their own species pretty quickly.

Fridge Horror
  • Where exactly are Darla's parents?
    • Darla could probably be an orphan.
      • Or, as the above mentioned, she could really be older than what she looked and isn't living with her parents
      • Alternatively, Max could be her guardian hired by her parents, or (a la Sunset Boulevard) he's actually her father.
    • She fired them.
  • As pointed out on the YMMV page, the flood Darla caused could have injured or killed several people, not to mention the damage costs to the studio.
    • Maybe that's how she lost her money as well as her career. Perhaps she was forced to pay for the damage?
  • Before the ivory trade was banned, piano keys were made from elephant ivory. When Wooly plays the piano, he's pressing keys made from dead elephant tusks.
  • What'll happen to Max once the Darla hot air ballon completely deflates? Will he fall to his death?

Fridge Logic
  • Why didn't Mammoth just film Wooly once for their Vanity Plate?
  • If the film takes place in 1939, how did the animals live long enough to star in (at the time) recent movies like Grumpy Old Men and Twister? Especially Cranston, Francis and Wooly, who are already pretty far along in years.
