to:

* "The Stately Homes Robberies":
** After Lady Penelope crashes the crooks' helijet, one of the crooks can be seen still trying to operate the controls even though the jet has been completely blown up.
** When Lady Penelope is confronting the crooks, one of them can be seen waving his arms around like a child having a tantrum.
** When Penelope and Parker are returning the jewels, Parker has a brief fantasy where he imagines himself as a king wearing the crown jewels. Penelope has to snap him out of it.



to:

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ntf9C6adZkI One commercial from 1993]] had the traditional countdown-- only for ''Thunderbird 1'' to stay on its' launchpad, much to the bafflement of the narrator, who [[RepeatedCueTardyResponse repeats "Thunderbirds are go!"]] again. Still no response. Turns out Scott's on break, eating a [=KitKat=]. At the end of the ad, the narrator frustratedly shouts "THUNDERBIRDS, GO!"


* The Hood's LargeHam antics (along with his goons) can be pretty funny at times. Like when he has Brains activate the command and control center, he's taken off-guard by the room's rotating, and Ben Kingsley's facial expressions just sell it. He's probably thinking "Whoa, didn't expect this. Gotta keep my self from falling over."

to:

* When Parker is flying FAB-1 to Tracy Island, Lady Penelope is casually reading items from a newspaper, to which Parker replies in his usual stoic form. She then casually adds "Oh, and England won the football last night.", causing [[NotSoStoic Parker to cheer wildly]] -- and briefly lose control of FAB-1, tossing Alan and Fermat around before he regains control.
* The Hood's LargeHam antics (along with his goons) can be pretty funny at times. Like when he has Brains [[ToTheBatpole activate the command and control center, center]], he's taken off-guard by the room's rotating, and Ben Kingsley's facial expressions just sell it. He's probably thinking "Whoa, didn't expect this. Gotta keep my self from falling over."


** Parker decks a sniper before he can shoot Penelope and Tin-Tin, but both end up rolling down the hill in a large HumnSnowball.

* Parker becoming a human snowball in the "Cham-Cham." The (Possibly)antigrav umbrella at the end deserves a mention.

* Several from "The Cham-Cham", both involving Parker:
** Parker decks a sniper before he can shoot Penelope and Tin-Tin, but both end up rolling down the hill in a large snowball.
** After catching some hooks from Thunderbird 2 with an umbrella, Parker is launched from the cable car by the sudden stop. He is unharmed, though, since he floats to the ground with the umbrella [[Film/MaryPoppins Mary Poppins-style]].

Added DiffLines:

* The Hood's LargeHam antics (along with his goons) can be pretty funny at times. Like when he has Brains activate the command and control center, he's taken off-guard by the room's rotating, and Ben Kingsley's facial expressions just sell it. He's probably thinking "Whoa, didn't expect this. Gotta keep my self from falling over."
** When he tries to make Brains do it just before hand, his response? "[[CurseCutShort Fu- Fa- Fu- NO WAY!]]" The Hood's expression indicates he didn't think Brains was gonna swear at him.
** And when Jeff asks him who he is. He replies almost casually "Oh you can, call me The Hood.", while he's looking at the floor. What was he looking at? The stuff that made the room rotate?

Added DiffLines:

* Earlier in the movie, Brains is seen fiddling around with an invention of his, which allows him to levitate a cell phone on his workstation- [[FunnyBackgroundEvent completely unaware he's managing to lift]] [[AchievementsInIgnorance the Mole behind him as well]].

* The ending of the episode "Cry Wolf", Tony and Bob let Scott drive in the cart they use as Thunderbirds 2, only for him to turn out to be too heavy for the cart and ends up crashing through the barn and into some rubbish bins, it's topped by what Scott says after his bumpy ride:

!!!The 1960s series and movies






* From the 2004 movie, as an in-joke on the series' use of human hands in close-ups, cuts to a puppet hand pressing a button at one point.

*As a MythologyGag to
the series' use of human hands in close-ups, cuts to they did the inverse during the ''Thunderbird 1'' launch- a puppet ''puppet'' hand pressing a button at one point.suddenly replaces Fermat's!.


* Day of Disaster has the bridge technicians thinking Brains may be insane and have escaped from an asylum.
** Even better when Lady Penelope rescues him from a psychiatrist and he catches her speaking into her [[ShoePhone makeup kit.]]
