* CoversAlwaysLie: The "Black Diamond" VHS depicted a scene on the cover in which Philip is about to wake a pink-clad Aurora while Maleficent rages on the staircase to a room above. However, major plot points are that the event takes place (i) at a moment when Aurora's dress is blue instead of pink, (ii) after Maleficent is dead, and (iii) in the "topmost tower" of the castle.

On top of the film itself being in the PanAndScan format.



* {{Letterbox}}: Three clips from this movie -- Aurora singing in the forest, Phillip escaping Maleficent's dungeon, and Aurora and Phillip waltzing -- became the first pieces of footage to air on TV in widescreen, when shown in the ''Series/WaltDisneyPresents'' episode "The Peter Tchaikovsky Story". However, they played trimmed to 1.82:1. Additionally, in 1997, ''Sleeping Beauty'' became one of the lucky few Disney movies to get a widescreen VHS. This presented the movie in the 2.35:1 aspect ratio used for 35mm engagements.

* ActionizedAdaptation: There's an action-packed climax where Maleficent turns into a dragon and battles the prince, in contrast to the story where he awakens Aurora without trouble.

* AdaptationalKarma: Maleficient meets her death at the hands of Prince Phillip; her original fairy-tale counterpart simply disappeared from the story after delivering her curse and was never seen to be punished.

* IdiotBall:
** King Stephan. He deliberately insults someone who is both powerful and vindictive.
** Merryweather. The whole mess could still have been avoided but she just had to rub Maleficent's face in the fact that she was not wanted at the christening

Having already adapted [[Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs two]] [[Disney/{{Cinderella}} similar]] FairyTales, the biggest challenge story-wise was how to make the plot different without recycling too many elements. Walt wanted the story to be more streamlined, focusing on the central plot about the two lovers [[TwoLinesNoWaiting without]] the [[FourLinesAllWaiting numerous side plots]] involving minor characters like dwarves or mice. Technically, the final film ''is'' rather streamlined with one major plot... because the animators had so much fun fleshing out the Three Good Fairies that the film completely unintentionally became a PerspectiveFlip about the efforts of three heroines to rescue the sleeping beauty and her prince from an evil fairy. If Walt's [[WhatCouldHaveBeen original plan had been followed]], the fairies would have been [[SingleMindedTwins Single Minded Triplets]] with no distinctive personalities (quite ironic, as it was Walt Disney himself who pushed for the dwarfs in ''Snow White'' to have distinct personalities).
