The interrogation of diaspora, disaporic nostalgia, and disaporic reconstruction are intertwined in films such as The Incredibles (2004), Wall-E (2008), Fritz the Cat (1972), and Allegro non Troppo (1976). In each of these works, extremely dark and subtle explorations are made into diaspora, its mechanisms, and its fallout. These strikingly different films are purport a happy ending for mankind, even when that happy ending is annihilation. These films share a playful sense of the inevitable; a joy in complete obliteration. This paper details the use of diaspora as a comedic device.
