A young orphaned boy raised by underground cave-dwelling trash collectors tries to save his friends from an evil exterminator.
The manhole cover has on the the top "CITY OF CHEESEBRIDGE", and the bottom "HERE BE MONSTERS", while in the middle, there is a crossed fork and knife over a slice of Swiss cheese.
Someone's got the cheese fits again.
Mr. Trout: Oh, quickly, quietly get the leeches.
Mr. Gristle: Quietly. Quietly.
Archibald Snatcher: Where's he going?
Mr. Gristle: Quietly.
Archibald Snatcher: Is he getting more cheese?
Archibald Snatcher: What?
Mr. Pickles: I think you've had enough for today, boss.
When the teddy bear's music box runs down, Baby Eggs hands the mechanism to Fish who gives the key only two half-turns. The music box then plays again, with its key somehow able to unwind for many revolutions. Later on after the Boxtrolls wake up, this impossibility is repeated, but is even worse since now the key winds/unwinds in the opposite direction.
After the first part of the credits, Mr. Trout and Mr. Pickles have a philosophical discussion about their place in the world while, around them, that world carries on.
