- Alternate Character Interpretation: At the end, have Gilbert's experiences left him with a newfound appreciation and respect for springs? Or has he been cursed or even possessed by Coily?
- Anvilicious: WORSHIP SPRINGS, NOW!
- Ending Fatigue: Yes, even something this short can have it, as the film goes on for a surprisingly long time after Coily restores things to normal. Tom notes "Shouldn't this be over?" Even the characters in the short are visibly annoyed.
- Memetic Mutation: "NOOO SPRINGS!" <bweep-bwop>. Coily is the iconic "take away the thing you complain about" character.
- Special Effects Failure: Coily is so poorly animated that his body occasionally disappears completely for a moment, leaving only his head.
YMMV / A Case of Spring Fever
