- Crosses the Line Twice: The Running Gag involving a gun and a cigarette lighter that looks like a gun.
- Ensemble Darkhorse: Among the animated title sequences, Richard Williams' work for this film is considered the best and most memorable.
- Moment of Awesome:
- The opening heist of the diamond is done straight and is surprisingly suspenseful. It may also count as a Big-Lipped Alligator Moment, since the rest of the movie is an all-out comedy.
- The animated title sequence to the same film may also count. Many consider it the best of the series, courtesy of Richard Williams.
