I see the movie as having integrity. What would be throw-away jokes in other animated kiddie pics receive enough of a follow-up in this one that they become successful as a self reference even if they might have fallen flat initially. It reflects a confidence that the writers and performers have in their material that's refreshing. It reminds me of some Pixar films that way.

Also, great physical characterization by the animators. There's a fair amount of more subtle humor going on in the expressions of the characters that helps make the movie more funny without making it more joke-y. Maybe it's just me, but conspicuous jokes have been getting more on my nerves lately. I'm looking at you, Avengers.
