* Woundwort is stumped when Bigwig asks what's so strange about someone wanting to join his warren, because even he knows no rabbit in his right mind would do so willingly, "but he could hardly say so."



* During the epilogue, there's a very cute scene where Bigwig is trying to instruct some baby rabbits in how to deal with a cat, but they're too in awe of him to really pay much attention to what he's saying.

* ''Speedwell's Story'' from ''Tales of Watership Down'' is pretty much one long Funny Moment with its complete surreal nonsense, though the highlight has to be the [[CoughSnarkCough other]] [[CloudCuckooLander rabbits']] [[InsaneTrollLogic reactions]]. The entire thing is essentially one long troll to see [[{{Corpsing}} who breaks first.]]

Added DiffLines:

Just because this film is DarkerAndEdgier compared to the novel, doesn't mean there isn't any funny moment here and there.

Added DiffLines:

* There's something about Fiver going into a trance during the battle and having his "There's a dog in the woods" MadnessMantra that just ''freaks the Elfrafans out''.

* ** When Hazel offers to take Kehaar into the burrow:


* When the rabbits discover Kehaar, the seagull with an injured wing.
-->'''Hazel:''' We help you.
-->'''Kehaar:''' [[PrecisionFStrike PISS! OFF!]]



* Bigwig showing hrududil (cars) aren't dangerous by sitting on the centre line as one "ignores" him - then getting scared out of his wits when he forgot they travel in ''both'' directions!



** When the rabbits first meet Kehaar, Hazel offers to take him into the burrow:
--->'''Kehaar:''' No! Ving no good, but I valk plenty good! ''[tries to walk, immediately collapses]'' [[OnSecondThought ...Is long way?]]



** Really, Kehaar in general. He provides like 95% of the movie's humor.

* The film version doesn't have a lot of humor but Kehaar's "You ''shtupit bunnies!"'' rant is a ''very'' notable exception.
** The build-up to this exchange is priceless. Kehaar is sat in the opening of one burrow, rambling to himself about how the rabbits don't have any mates. Bigwig hops up behind him, hoping to slip out of the burrow, but Kehaar unknowingly blocks his way multiple times, and at one point the two end up unintentionally mirroring each other. Bigwig's solution? Just push Kehaar out by diving under him!
** Don't forget - "Who said that!?" "No-one, sir".
** Just picturing Zero Mostel making bird noises in the studio is worth a few laughs. Plus, his declaration of "Perfect landing!" to no one in particular.
** Bigwig making contact with Kehaar while undercover in Efrafa.
--->'''Bigwig:''' ''(whispering)'' Listen carefully.
--->'''Kehaar:''' [[NoIndoorVoice YAH!]] ''(Bigwig cringes)''

* "Silflay hraka, u embleer rah!" Ouch, Woundwort. ''Ouch''. What makes it even better is that the novel has been building this up from the start by regularly uising these Lapine words so you'll know ''exactly'' what they mean once Bigwig gives this line to Woundwort.
