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).

* BatOutOfHell: Chernabog, though it may take some time for you to notice. He's not just your average, bat-''winged'' demon. His ''facial structure'' too is reminiscent of that of a bat, notably his mouth.

* BigBad: The ObviouslyEvil [[BigRedDevil Big Black Devil]] Chernabog is definitely this for his segment, and is often interpreted as being this for the [[UpToEleven entire Disney Animated Universe]].

* ArtisticLicensePaleontology: ''Rite of Spring'', filled with StockDinosaurs (including the ''[[TyrannosaurusRex T. rex]]'') of different Mesozoic periods and sometimes-questionable anatomy. In fact, ''Tyrannosaurus'' lived closer to when ''humans'' live today than he did to when Stegosaurus lived. According to commentary on the Blu-Ray release, the fight was originally to have between the ''T. rex'' and a ''Triceratops'', but the ''Stegosaurus'' was switched in as the animators felt the [[ComicStrip/TheFarSide thagomizer]] would make the battle more interesting. Going by [[ScienceMarchesOn the 1940s understanding of dinosaurs]], however, it's pretty accurate, apart of course from the AnachronismStew. AccidentallyAccurate, as the "''T. rex''" was drawn with three fingers, making it an ''Allosaurus'', which did live in the Jurassic alongside ''Stegosaurus''. On the other hand, it is too bulky and lacks the brow horns ''Allosaurus'' is also known for having.

* {{Arcadia}}: The ''Pastoral'' Symphony.Symphony was composed by Beethoven as a love letter to the countryside of central Europe. ''Fantasia'' transplants the setting to an ancient Greece populated by satyrs, centaurs, cherubs, pegasi, unicorns, and deities, but it is still set in an idyllic countryside of meadows, forests, streams, and lakes.

* ''Literature/TheLittleMatchGirl'' (''Nocturne from String Quartet No. 2 in D Major'', composed by Alexander Borodin). Disney relocates the Creator/HansChristianAndersen story to Russia, but otherwise adapts it to a surprisingly faithful extent. Premiered at a 2006 French film festival, and included on the 2006 Platinum Edition DVD and 2013 Diamond Edition Blu-Ray of another Disney-produced adaptation of an Andersen story: ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'', as well as the 2015 Walt Disney Animation Studios Short Films Collection.
* ''One By One'', composed by Lebo M. This short features South African children preparing and flying colorful kites to the accompaniment of a deleted ''Disney/TheLionKing'' song (that was later salvaged for [[Theatre/TheLionKing the musical]]). Included on the 2004 Special Edition DVD and 2011 Special Edition Blu-Ray of ''Disney/TheLionKingIISimbasPride''.

* ''Music/NightOnBaldMountain[=/=]Ave Maria'', composed by Music/ModestMussorgsky and Music/FranzSchubert, respectively. The first half of this sequence is probably the most frightening sequence in Disney animation, featuring Chernabog (who is essentially the Devil, instead of an actual Slavic Pagan deity [[note]] In the film the character is more or less explicitly identified as Satan; he only started being called "Chernabog" decades later for business reasons [[/note]]) raising the dead from the grave. The sequence leads to a contrasting sequence to the calm tune of ''Ave Maria'', featuring religious villagers walking through a forest and an old cathedral.

''Fantasia'' is a [[TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation 1940]] animated film from Creator/WaltDisney and the third entry in the Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon. It's a surreal, yet classic blend of animation and ClassicalMusic, often considered to have been ahead of its time back in the day. Another way to describe it as is ''WesternAnimation/SillySymphonies: TheMovie''.
