YMMV: Moving Pictures
- "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: The talking animals revert at the end, and the cat immediately begins hunting the mouse. Originally this just read like life returning to normal for them, but it's a bit more disquieting if you've read The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents: in that book, Maurice the cat is haunted by having unwittingly eaten a talking rat, he attacks another one when his mind is temporarily suppressed by the Rat King, and the prospect of losing their sentience in the same way terrifies the rats of the Clan.
- Hilarious in Hindsight: The Hwondaland stock dealer's paddocks contain a variety of savannah animals, including a few marked-down specimens of "bewildebeest". Anyone who's a fan of How to Train Your Dragon 2 will get a very different mental image from the one Pterry was probably going for, when they read that line nowadays.
