If the wheels just raise up without doing anything else, it would end up with him leaning way forward and the little black casters in front holding the forward weight.
The center of gravity is forward from the rearmost wheels, so it has to rock backward first in order to have some leeway when it raises up and wants to lean forward again.
The final leaning forward after rocking backward is what allows it to have the center of gravity in the middle over the gray wheels and not leaning on the little front wheels.

I admit its been like 17 years since physics class, but how does shifting the weight up and towards the back, thus raising its center of gravity not dump him on his head?
