The film has no love story apart from Pacha and his very pregnant wife, and has only two significant songs (both written by [[Music/ThePolice Sting]] after the other 90% of his soundtrack was discarded, and one of which is performed by Music/TomJones), while the spurned would-be [[NonHumanSidekick cute animal sidekick]] vengefully attempts to get Kuzco eaten by a pack of jaguars. As you might guess, this all plays out more like a feature-length WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes cartoon than a typical Disney flick. Creator/RogerEbert's review specifically said that this wasn't an animated feature, but a 100-minute cartoon, and that he meant that as a good thing.

* ShrugTake: When the villains are in pursuit of the heroes, and their progress on the map becomes visible on the actual roads and paths, Yzma and Kronk decide that they're better off ignoring this phenomenon.

* CarnivoreConfusion: A ShoutOut to ''Film/TheFly1958'', in which a talking fly is eaten by a spider. ("Help me! Help meee! Too late..") It should be noted, however, that the spider doesn't say anything.
