YMMV: Animalympics
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: You wouldn't think you could feel so much for a character who's only been on-screen five minutes, but whenever someone wins, you can't help but feel good for them. And, of course:
    "I can run forever if we can run together!"
    • Bolt Jenkins when he gives his gold medal to Kip Ngogo on account of their photo-finish victory in the 100 Metre Dash.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: The entire soundtrack, largely courtesy of 10CC's Graham Gouldman.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Dean Wilson the otter, for suure
    • Tatyana is probably one of the most well known competitors in the show.
  • Foe Yay: Canonical, as rival runners Kit and René have a pretty obvious thing for one another despite also wanting each other to lose pathetically. they end up tying for gold.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: A track & field athlete called Bolt, who did exceptionally well in the 100m? Ironic Echo doesn't even begin to cover it!
  • Tear Jerker: "Love's not for me"...
    So when the race is won
    And there's nothing left to do
    Alone again,
    But where are you?
    • René's expression at that moment is heartbreaking.
  • Unfortunate Implications: Several involving Bruce Kwakimoto. He speaks exclusively in Japanese/Chinese/Korean/what may in fact be random pseudo-Asian gibberish, his routine consists of random martial arts, a few of his moves are referred to by names like "Mawashi you facey," and wherever he's from, everyone seems to be identical.
