Fridge Brilliance

  • The Whippet says that she knows exactly how everything turns out and that there are no surprises in Heaven. So, why didn't she know Charlie was going to rewind his watch? Because Charlie's not like other animals who get into Heaven: he'll take the difficulty of living over the easy way of the afterlife. Charlie is a surprise. At the end of his song, he even sings it:

Whippet: What's that you have behind your back?
Charlie: She's gonna be-
Whippet: Charlie, don't wind that watch!
Charlie: -surprised!

    • Did they imply at the very end that Charlie managed to break out of Hell too? Theoretically the Satan dragon could be in the town merely to retrieve him, but since we don't see Satan running about to pick up the many people that go to Hell, Charlie must have done something to piss him off.

Fridge Horror

  • In the Christmas Special, puppies are seen in Heaven. That carries a rather sad subtext.
