YMMV / A Grand Day Out

  • Accidental Aesop: Nick Park has denied that it was ever intended, but one could read the cooker's reactions to discovering Wallace leaving junk on the moon and chopping out bits of cheese as a statement about the damage that ignorant tourists can do to once-pristine beauty spots.
  • Esoteric Happy Ending: Hooray! Wallace & Gromit got their cheese and the robot got a pair of makeshift skis he oh-so wanted! But the robot is coin operated, meaning it will either shut down by a hill and crash or on the ground for who knows how long.

  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Wallace and Gromit's flat is decorated with random paintings of sheep.
  • Jerkass Woobie: The robot parking attendant. Sure, it tries to take out Wallace with a truncheon, but only because Wallace is messing up the little section of the moon that it's trying to keep in order, not to mention it's all alone and wants to go back to earth so it can ski. It's clearly anguished when Wallace and Gromit take off for earth without it.
