YMMV / Animalympics

  • Accidental Innuendo: "Darren checks the goalie! He likes what he sees."
  • 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.
      • Bolt Jenkins is being treated like this due to his backstory, achieving what he dreamed of, being a proper sportsman towards Kip Ngogo, and for being a expy/parody of Rocky Balboa and John Travolta and it shows in the Noah's Ark Disco scene.
  • 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!
  • Older Than They Think: Some people assume Henry Hummell is an expy of Ben Stein rather than Henry Kissinger.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The scene spoofing The Seventh Seal features a scene in a different art style of a horse lying with a shocked expression. Let's just say, if you watched The Godfather, this scene might trigger some memories...
  • Popular with Furries: One of the most well-known gateway drugs into the fandom.
  • 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.
  • Vindicated by Cable: Once again, HBO and TheDisneyChannel to the rescue.
