* Several MamaBear moments in during the "Pastoral Symphony" section
** When the storm first begins to hit, several unicorn foals hide under their mother for protection. She stands defiant to keep her babies safe.
** The pink Pegasus foal is being blown to and fro in the storm, failing to right herself. In one swoop, the mother Pegasus comes and helps her baby get safe. When the Pegasuses are in shadow, it can be seen that even the mother Pegasus has trouble flying in the storm, but she does it to save her babies, and when the lightning flashes again, all of the foals can be seen safely under their mother's wing.
** While not an actual mother bear, a unicorn foal is helplessly bleating for aid on a rock as the storm rages. A centaurette wades into the water and safely rescues the foal. Later, when the centaurs are seen running into a cave for shelter, the foal can be seen carried to safety in the centaurette's arms.

** What drives it home is the progression of Chernabog's expressions each time the church bell rings. First it's confusion, then annoyance, then an amazing OhCrap... and finally, the sound of the church bells have him in physical ''[[GoodHurtsEvil pain.]]''

** The ''Stegosaurus'' being the only dinosaur to put up a pretty good fight against the ''T-Rex''. Yes, it ends up losing, but it lands some great hits!

** Here's something about the making of that segment. The whole "Ave Maria" segment had to be refilmed ''twice'' and the final filmreel was flown from Hollywood to the New York premiere just ''four hours'' before showtime.
* When it was released in 1940, ''Fantasia'' was the most expensive film Disney had made, and it was a complete critical and financial flop. Its failure nearly bankrupted Disney, and was one of the biggest reasons (other than World War II) that the studio didn't put out another full-length animated feature until ''Disney/{{Cinderella}}''. Nowadays, it is often regarded as not only Disney's best feature, but as one of the greatest films ''of all time'', making ''Fantasia'' a standout example of VindicatedByHistory.

* This is the film that brought Mickey back into public interest after the theories of him being casted off to the side by Donald started to look true.

* "Rite of Spring", specifically the sequence of the newborn Earth still settling. This troper still gets chills as the bubbles of magma explode in time to the music and the seas come rushing in.

* Dance of the Hours. it just ''reeks'' of atmosphere. One would have to listen to DavidOgdenStiers' narration in the "Making of Fantasia" documentary on the original DVD release to get the full effect.
