What makes Secondhand Lions such fun is the comedy used throughout. Starting with when Walter first arrives at his Uncles’ house to the end of the movie where they manage to crash a plane, upside down, in the side of a barn. When Walter first arrives at the beginning of the movie he quickly realizes that his uncles do not approve of visitors and have no idea how to take care of a child. They even go so far as to warn him that they don’t know anything about kids and if there is something he needs he will have to find it himself or learn to do without, and if they “kick off in the middle of the night” (McCanlies, 2003), he’s on his own. The only other people Walter meets while living with his uncles are the various traveling salesmen that his uncles see as their personal form of entertainment, shooting their shotguns at them to see how quickly they will run away, distant cousins who want Hub and Garth’s money (part of the reason they tell Walter they want to keep him around when he attempts to run away to find him mother is that the other relatives will hate it), and greasers that Hub resoundingly beats up once he breaks out of the hospital after a heart

I can’t, lie when I entered the plane to leave to Brussels, Belgium I was scared. For the first time ever I was all alone. The first day in Brussels I didn’t have enough money for the fancy hotels so I slept on a tandem sling at the airport with nothing but a shirt, shorts and my little brother’s batman blanket.
At the beginning of the war, many accidents were due to mechanical problems with planes, bad weather and errors in navigation. Louie called the B-24 that they flew on a “Flying Coffin.” “Flying the B-24, one of the world’s heaviest planes, was like wrestling a bear” (Hillenbrand 55). On Thursday, May 27, 1943, Louie, his friend Phil and Cuppernill were headed to Honolulu for their day off. Before they left, a lieutenant flagged them down and told them there were going a mission to search for a missing pilot. Although the guys insisted there were no planes available, the lieutenant had them take the B-24 Green Hornet.
With the upcoming arrival Sam astonishingly surrendered and permitted them to close the business for half of the day so the boys could meet their family at the airport. This was an astronomical gesture as it was the first time in five years that the restaurant would be closed. Due to Sam’s extreme stinginess his sons were forced to share an ugly and tattered black wool winter coat. This posed a substantial problem with their upcoming trip to the airport as it was an extremely cold winter. Knowing they needed Sam’s approval for such a considerable purchase they pondered how they could ever convince their prudent father to splurge for this much needed item.
