* TheDiscoveryOfFire: The cartoon opens with the first caveman suffering from the freezing cold until the gods took pity on him and gave him fire.
-->'''Caveman:''' I think I'll call it the 'wheel'!


* AlwaysChaoticEvil: In this short, fire is shown as a force that can't be trusted and will gleefully destroy everything if it is allowed to. To drive the point home, the fire takes on the form of [[EvilLivingFlame a creepy, evil grinning demon]] at the end of the film.

** Ralph and his wife. They overload an outlet, leave a cigarette and hot iron burning, and the man even sticks a fork into a toaster. Is it any wonder they caused such a massive fire?
