It is played for laughs but three dogs die in three different and unpleasant ways. Some might find it funny but most dog lovers probably won't.

Otto follows Wanda without her knowledge when she's with Archie, but it's played for laughs and not in a sinister way

There is a moment where a man shoves his girlfriend, and she falls backwards. There is another moment where a woman slaps her husband in the face. Neither of them are injured.

Someone is slowly and repeatedly crushed by a steam roller. They live, but in real life this would have been enough to kill someone.

One character is forced to watch as another character eats the fish he cares deeply about. He also has his ability to breathe cut off by having french fries stuck up his nose. It's intended to be comical

I don't know what constitutes trigger here so this may be more scopophobia than fourth wall breaking, but Michael Pallin's character (Ken, with the stutter) looks directly at the camera after he successfully says "Cathcart Towers Hotel" towards the end, after John Cleese asks him to write it down.

No actual incest but two characters who are in a romantic relationship pretend to be siblings to deceive/con other characters.
