* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: You think they could have done more with the HumansThroughAlienEyes concept but nope, its just cliches, ToiletHumor, and a weak copy cat earth all the way through.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: You think they They could have done so much more with the HumansThroughAlienEyes concept concept, thrown in some weird alien biology, a few alien customs, and it wouldn't spoil the 1950s gags excessively, but nope, its just cliches, ToiletHumor, and a weak copy cat earth Earth all the way through.


* PropagandaPiece: Humanity is portrayed as a monstrous group of aliens who want to enslave everything else. It's used as a scare tactic to the public much the same as actual sci-fi movies did back in the 1950s. Special mention that the ScareTactics were being used before anyone even knew that life existed beyond their world.

* ValuesDissonance: Sorta subverted, since, despise the film was created and produced in Spain, the scriptwriter was [[WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}} Joe Stillman]], who is American. It's possible that Stillman decided to write the script based on how [[AllAdultAnimationisSouthPark Americans perceive animation]], rather than aiming at[[AnimationAgeGhetto how Spaniards perceive animation (at least at the time)]].
