YMMV: Meet the Feebles
  • Crosses the Line Twice: This movie has crossed every line there is, so often all the lines have been obliterated. Except for (mercifully), child murder.
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: The romance between Robert and Lucille is probably one of the few genuinely sweet things to occur in this film.
    • Throughout the film, Sidney the Elephant denies that Seymour is his son, despite the obvious resemblance. But when Heidi goes on a rampage and Seymour is in the middle of the gunfire, Sidney charges right in and saves his son at the cost of his knees.
  • Ear Worm: The entire soundtrack to some extent, but especially the intro song and The Sodomy Song.
  • Ensemble Dark Horse:
    • Heidi to an extent
    • Robert
    • Trevor, so much Trevor!
  • Fridge Horror: That guppy that Bletch ate and then vomited up on the golf course? IT WAS ALIVE IN HIM THE ENTIRE TIME.
  • It Was His Sled: Almost every review of this film thinks nothing of spoiling the ending. To be fair though, this isn't really the type of film that you'd watch for the plot twists.
    • And the cover showing Heidi with the gun probably does not help either...
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Every car in the film is a Morris Minor. One of them would eventually also turn up in an actual Muppet movie.
  • Jerk Ass Woobie: Oh Heidi, Heidi, Heidi.....
  • Moral Event Horizon: While Bletch and Trevor were killed during Heidi's rampage, she crosses a few lines during the final act when she brutally kills some of the more innocent and nice characters.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Just seeing how revolting some of the puppets are in this film. Especially Trevor the Rat, Harry when he thinks he has 'The Big One', Cedric the Boar, The Giant Spider, and Mr. Big.
    • The Borax scene where Mr. Bletch receives the cocaine delivery and lets Dennis have the first line. As he snorts it up, the crack, which is actually borax, melts off his nose and kills him. Mr. Bletch proceeds to stuff borax down the drug dealer's throat, which literally "liquifies" him.
    • Harry Hare, at this point all but eaten alive by his disease, is trying to convince himself that he's still well enough to go perform by psyching himself up in his mirror. As he does his pep-talk, one of his pustules bursts and literally covers the mirror with pus.
    • Don't forget about Heidi's massacre in the end.
  • Squick: Prostitution, BDSM, drugs, shit-eating, vomiting, all culminating in a massive bloodshed. And all done with puppets.
  • The Woobie: Harry Hare, first tormented by the Fly in the Sky when he thinks he's caught "The Big One", desperately struggles to climb out of his carrot-rocket so he can give one last show before he dies, and he looks absolutely pitiful when he is praying to God that he gets better. And when it turns out when he didn't have "The Big One", he gets killed by Heidi.
