Added DiffLines:

* InformedWrongness: Moments after meeting, Tricia suggests Arthur go on a trip with her to Madagascar. The film tries to portray Arthur as a stick-in-the-mud for turning her down, but Tricia seriously suggests he quit his job for it, and instead comes off as completely unreasonable.


** José María del Río, a famous Spaniard TV narrator who voiced the Guide in the Spanish dub (see Woolseyism below), would later went to lend his voice to the legendary mystery show ''Cuarto Milenio'', which has both ufology and astronautics/space exploration between its many themes.

* EarWorm: The Sirius Cybernetics Corporation anthem, which is kind of impressive given it's ''intentionally'' sung off-key and out of tune.


* EarWorm: "[[RealSongThemeTune Journey of the Sorcerer]]". Every version with audio has got some arrangement of it.
** The 6" single of the TV theme music had a rather catchy song on the B-side called "Only The End Of The World Again", credited to Disaster Area.[[note]]According to [[http://h2g2.com/approved_entry/A32873899 h2g2]], Douglas Adams played guitar on it.[[/note]]



* EarWorm: "So long and thanks for all the fish, so sad that it had come to this, we tried to warn you all but oh dear..."

Added DiffLines:

* GeniusBonus: That's an actual Ford Prefect that Ford tries to shake hands with.

* MemeticMutation: "You have destroyed most of a small galaxy. Please pick your words with greater care."


* CantUnHearIt: The cast of the radio/television series. The film cast as well, to a lesser extent.

** The film version of Trillian doesn't even find out until late in the story thanks to Zaphod. When she find out, she goes ''ballistic''.

Added DiffLines:

* SugarWiki/VisualEffectsOfAwesome: The series mostly suffers from terrible special effects, except for the sequences where we see the guide itself. All these shots were actually hand drawn replicas of typical computer graphics of the time, and even today you'd swear they were actually done on a computer.


* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: To "Tunnel of Love" by Dire Straits, in the radio adaptation of [=SLaTfAtF=].

** Also, Humma Kavula's vicious "Don't Vote for Stupid" campaign against Zaphod Beeblebrox. [[https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/ywgxqb/america-is-being-run-by-zaphod-beeblebrox Hello]], President Creator/DonaldTrump...
*** Better yet, in 2005 a "Don't Vote For Stupid" campaign was a fun one-second gag. In 2017, that was pretty much what Hillary Rodham Clinton's campaign boiled down to -- and voters realized that in a two-party system, it basically means "If you don't vote for me, ''you're'' stupid." Hence why it failed miserably.
