The dog scenes have a Loony Tunes logic: the dogs' communication skills have evolved but not their psychology; their dialogue is a witty and hilarious reflection of the way canines see the world. Docter, working with the production designer Ricky Nierva and a team of animation artists, has created a film that is magically lush, but with a dark side: when Muntz sets fire to the airborne house, the image of Carl, dazed by the loss of the property that has symbolized Ellie's love, is silhouetted against a crimson-black sunset.
