** For the latter portion, the original cut was supposed to be the greatest animation epic of all time, so therefore, Williams put in almost half a century's work into each frame, resulting in animation that mirrored CGI because of its sheer perfection, especially the War Machine. The documentary on the film aptly describes the Thief's trek through the collapsing machine as "It looks like someone died making it."
** One of the master animators working on the film, Creator/GrimNatwick, was in his ''90s'' when he animated the witch for the original cut of the film.

** One of the most hilarious and awesome bits of animation, which is enhanced by the soundtrack, is the final scene, as we pan out to THE END, and the Thief walks in, takes the letters, then, after a moment's thought, grabs something just off screen, the soundtrack warping, then you see him steal everything short of the end credits right out of the projector!
* Zig-Zag, despite being portrayed as a scheming coward for the most part, has two fairy signifigant Awesome moments.

** Second, [[spoilers: his death scene, where he doesnt bother to scream or beg, despite him being devoured alive by the crocodiles he never bothered to feed, and his own pet vulture. This is especially awesome considering that he freaked out like a lunatic just from stepping on a nail, TWICE.]]

* The King rushing to rally the defenses of the Golden City, especially considering that he spent the majority of the film half-asleep and indifferent to almost everything. He really IS a capable leader, even if we didn't see it until now.
* One-Eye showing just ''why'' he is TheDreaded, commanding a massive, perfectly co-ordinated war machine that marches on the Golden City...[[BigDamnHeroes that is, until Tack steps in.]]

* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: The recobbled cut features truly inspired use of Rimsky-Korsakov's "Scheherazade" to fill in silent sections of the original film.
** The whole recobbled edition in general, removing the pop-culture references, disconnected dialogue and most of the OffModel animation in order to present it as the original animated epic it was supposed to be.

* AwesomeAnimation / VisualEffectsOfAwesome: Williams' original scenes are amazingly well animated. Not only is it technically excellent, but the characters also often move and act in very inventive ways: Of particular note is Zigzag's playing cards scene (animated by Williams himself), which ''has'' to be viewed frame-by-frame to catch all the subtleties. In fact, the art was so good that some parts of it, especially the War Machine, looked like animated CGI

* Zig-Zag, despite being portrayed as a scheming coward for the most part, has two fairy signifigant Awesome moments; first, after One-Eye tries to just dispose of him in a crocodile pit, and Zig-Zag rides back into the camp ''on the crocodiles'', and coldly tells One-Eye to not underestimate him again.

** The fact that the Thief is able to completely avoid the consequences of his job, the punishment for theft in Muslim culture are extremely strict; the loss of your hands. At one point, the palace guards catches him trying to steal jewels from an urn and try to exact that punishment but the Thief fakes them out by using a pair of hand-shaped back-scratchers he stole from Princess Yum-Yum.

** The unbelievably awesome scene of the Thief going through the War Machine was actually commissioned as a ''test sequence'' after interest was taken into funding the film. Who you may ask? '''Mohammed bin Faisal Al Saud;''' ''a Saudi Arabian prince.''
