Happy Feet

  • The movie soundtrack contains a cover of "Tell Me Something Good", originally a very NSFW funk song.
  • Also, when Gloria is performing her heart song, a boyband-esque trio performs "I'll Make Love To You" by Boyz II Men. Another suitor for Norma Jean sings Let's talk about eggs baby, by TLC.
  • "I like big tails and I cannot deny!"
  • After the fishing incident when Gloria and Mumble slip down the ice together, they fall into multiple compromising positions. Not too subtle.
  • Advertisement:
  • Mumble slaps Gloria's rear, towards the end of "Boogie Wonderland" ("No, it's 'MAMBO', OH!") as they're dancing together and then, throwing subtlety out the window altogether, she all but grinds on him.
  • When Gloria starts singing "Boogie Wonderland", accompanied by Mumble's tapping, the beginning is pretty freudian with Gloria singing slowly at first, then faster and faster while the song and background chant intensifies, until she ends up shouting "Dance!" (sounding a lot like "Yes!") and panting heavily.
  • Curse Cut Short: Lovelace, in response to the barrage of questions Mumble is asking him, claims to hear the "mystic beings" telling him to tell Mumble to "Go f... - forth and multiply".
  • When Mumble asks Lovelace about the "aliens", one of his questions is "Did they probe you?"
  • Lovelace's introduction has him tricking the male Adélie penguins into giving him pebbles so he can have an interspecies orgy with their species' females.

Happy Feet Two

  • In the beginning song number, we get several young female chicks singing a penguin version of "SexyBack"
  • "You. Me. Beautiful egg. Now."
    • Basically, Ramon was asking the girl of his dreams to have sex with him while in front of a whole nation of penguins watching them.
  • At one point, Bryan threatens Mumble and Erik to "fluff off."
  • Lovelace's introduction has this line from Ramón:
    Bo: [Lovelace] looks like a rainbow.
    Ramón: Yeah, like a rainbow with man-chichis!
  • Before Carmen's introduction, Sven tries to help Ramon look for a mate at which point Mumble accidentally shows up looking for his son Erik leading to this funny bit:
    Sven: Picture the love of your life..Now open your eyes! [Points to a crowd; Mumble pushes through]
    Mumble: [angrily] RAMON! Where are the kids?!
    Sven: [shocked] Close your eyes.
  • Will & Bill the Krill's bromance-like friendship develops a little more Ho Yay subtext through the course of the movie.

How well does it match the trope?
