* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation:
** ''Rhapsody in Blue'' does this to everyone no matter their race, keeping with the cool tones of the style. This also applies in "Pastoral Symphony" for everyone, notably the centaurs.

** The forest sprite in the ''Firebird'' segment. It's entirely possible that this character [[NoBiologicalSex doesn't even have a sex]].

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: In the ''Night On Bald Mountain'' sequence, ''naked women'' can be seen several times -- most blatantly in the form of three flickering flames. Of course, they're so artfully drawn that no actual naughty bits can be discerned, but it's the thought that counts. The harpies that start flying around not long before the Church bells start chiming have ''nipples,'' and fly right towards the camera.

* NeverTrustATrailer: Promotional art for ''Fantasia'' often seems to imply that Mickey as the Sorcerer's Apprentice faces off with Chernabog. The two appear in different segments and do not interact. Critics in 1940 actually complained about this.

* ''Theatre/TheNutcracker Suite'', composed by Music/PyotrIlyichTchaikovsky. Surprisingly, this features no characters from the ''Nutcracker'' ballet, but original sequences based on the Seasons featuring dancing fairies, fish, flowers, leaves, and even ''[[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs mushrooms]]'' (not a [[MushroomSamba samba]], however).

* ''Theatre/TheNutcracker Suite'', composed by Music/PyotrIlyichTchaikovsky. Surprisingly, this features no characters from the ''Nutcracker'' ballet, ballet[[note]]As host Deems Taylor points out, "Incidentally, uh, you won't see any 'nutcracker' on the screen; there's [[TheArtifact nothing left of him but the title]]."[[/note]], but original sequences based on the Seasons featuring dancing fairies, fish, flowers, leaves, and even ''[[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs mushrooms]]'' (not a [[MushroomSamba samba]], however).



[[AC:The sequences in this one include:]]
* Symphony No. 5 (first movement), composed by Music/LudwigVanBeethoven. Like Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, this is an "abstract" sequence, featuring butterfly-like triangles flitting about.
* ''Pines of Rome'', composed by Ottorino Respighi. This one features a family of [[SpaceWhale humpback whales that fly]] (yes, ''fly''). [[note]]Introduced by Creator/SteveMartin and Itzhak Perlman.[[/note]]
* ''Rhapsody in Blue'', composed by Music/GeorgeGershwin. In this sequence, several city people in 1930s New York go about their lives, set to the lively jazz-inspired music of Gershwin with visuals inspired by the drawings of Al Hirschfeld.[[note]]Introduced by Quincy Jones.[[/note]]
* Piano Concerto No. 2 in F Major (first movement), composed by Dmitri Shostakovich. Basically, this one is Creator/HansChristianAndersen's "Literature/TheSteadfastTinSoldier" set to music.[[note]]Introduced by Bette Midler.[[/note]]
* ''The Carnival of the Animals, Finale'' composed by Camille Saint-Saëns. This one centers on a flamingo playing with a yo-yo, much to the disapproval of his peers.[[note]]Introduced by Creator/JamesEarlJones.[[/note]]
* ''The Sorcerer's Apprentice'', back by popular demand.[[note]]Introduced by Creator/PennAndTeller.[[/note]]
* ''Pomp and Circumstance'', composed by Music/EdwardElgar. This scene is based on the story of [[TheGreatFlood Noah's Ark]], featuring WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck as Noah's assistant.[[note]]Introduced by Leopold Stokowsky, WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse, and James Levine.[[/note]]
* ''Firebird'' Suite, composed by Music/IgorStravinsky. A sprite brings spring to a forest, only to accidentally awaken the destructive Firebird.[[note]]Introduced by Creator/AngelaLansbury.[[/note]]



A platform game for the UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis loosely based on the first movie was released on 1991, though it's widely regarded as mediocre at best. A 2014 rhythm music game by Creator/{{Harmonix}}, ''Fantasia: Music Evolved'' has been released for the UsefulNotes/{{Xbox 360}} and UsefulNotes/XboxOne. Yen Sid is also a major character in the ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' series.

* DarkIsEvil / LightIsGood: Played straight with ''Night on Bald Mountain'' and ''Ave Maria'' sequence - in the first piece everything connected with Evil and Death is portrayed by the darkness, fires of Hell etc etc. during a dark and gloomy night, while the second piece is more lightened with sunshines and glowing candles symbolizing that the powers of light are triumphant over the powers of Evil.
* DarkIsNotEvil / OppositesAttract: The Pegasus mother and father. The father's coloration makes him look very gothic, almost sinister while his wife's coloration makes her look angelic.

** Zeus in "Pastoral Symphony" also counts.
* FrothyMugsOfWater: As is typical for Disney, the ''Pastoral'' is a ''huge'' aversion. They make ''no'' effort to hide intoxication, or the fact that Dionysus/Bacchus (and the unicorn he is riding) are drunk.

* RetGone[=/=]UnPerson[=/=]CanonDiscontinuity: [[UncleTomfoolery Sunflower]].
* SatanicArchetype: ''Night On Bald Mountain'' was originally introduced as starring "Satan himself" when ''Fantasia'' first premiered. His name was later changed to Chernabog (an obscure Slavic Pagan deity) in what was a reverse JesusTaboo, but the change was not pulled out of thin air. (See ShownTheirWork.)
* ShownTheirWork: At the time Fantasia was made, the only well-known version of ''Night on Bald Mountain'' was the one streamlined and rearranged (the All Music Guide says "{{bowdleri|se}}zed") by Rimsky-Korsakov. However it was the third version. The first version by Mussorgsky ("St. John's Eve at the Bald Mountain") was about a witches' sabbath on St. John's Eve[[note]] June 23rd in the Western Calendar, July 6th in the Orthodox Calendar, and, like the Eve of All Saints (Hallowe'en) and the Eve of St. Walburga (''Walpurgisnacht''), a traditional time for the grand Sabbat of the witches[[/note]], mentioned Satan explicitly and was rejected by the organizer of the festival for which it was written. The second and most obscure version of the music was heavily reworked, called "Dream of the Young Peasant Lad" and intended to be part of an opera which he never finished. According to the All Music Guide, "as a boy dreams on a hill, he is threatened by inhuman voices and finds himself mocked in the realm of shadows. The voices warn of the Devil and the "Black God" Chernobog; as the shadows fade, both appear. Chernobog is glorified, a Black Mass is sung, and a Witches' Sabbath breaks out. As a church bell intones, Chernobog disappears and the demons writhe in agony. A church choir sings, the demons fade away, awakening the boy." Sound familiar?

Compare later Disney films ''Disney/MakeMineMusic'' and ''Disney/MelodyTime'' which both feature music-based shorts, even using a few of the unused ideas from ''Fantasia''. Contrast ''WesternAnimation/AllegroNonTroppo'', the 1977 Bruno Bozzetto answer to ''Fantasia'', which hovers comfortably somewhere between AffectionateParody and TakeThat (and is just as breathtakingly beautiful).
