* {{Bowdlerization}}: The German dub removed much of the Nazi plot and things that relate to UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, effectively cutting out a whopping 29 minutes of the movie.

* ShaggyDogStory: The entire Isle of Naboombu subplot is rendered completely pointless once it's discovered that [[spoiler:there's a picture of the Star of Astoroth in the book Paul found with the spell inscribed on it, clearly legible.]]

* ShaggyDogStory: The entire Isle of Naboombu subplot is rendered completely pointless once it's discovered that [[spoiler:there's a picture of the Star of Astoroth in the book Paul found with the spell inscribed on it, clearly legible. Paul actually figured this out almost immediately, but nobody would listen to him.]]

* TwoHalvesMakeAPlot: Professor Brown has one half of the book that mentions the Substitutiary Locomotion spell, which appears to cut off just as it is about to mention the magic words that activate it. A bookseller has the other half, [[spoiler:and has been looking for Brown's half, thinking it has the spell. It turns out neither half has it -- which means the book was in more pieces than two and any additional pieces are gone altogether]].

* MagicalIncantation: This is how Miss Price casts spells, though Mr. Brown's difficulty in performing the comparatively simple "Rabbit" spell indicates there's at least some element of belief or will involved. Even she doesn't get it totally right, since according to the book it's a toad spell.

* {{Expy}}: Astoroth and his star seem to be inspired by the medieval alchemist and magus John Dee. His attempts to make animals sentient, on the other hand (as well as his ultimate fate) are rather reminiscent of [[Literature/TheIslandOfDoctorMoreau Dr. Moreau]], only with magic instead of science and (presumably) out of benevolence rather than ForScience.

* EverythingsLouderWithBagpipes: The armor of AnimatedArmor which Miss Price summons during the climax happens to have a bagpipe-player with it (because the castle where they were imprisoned happened to include a museum which held military garb from various periods of English history).[[note]]Not only could said museum have included garb from British enemies, such as the Scots prior to the countries' unification, but after said unification, the Scottish divisions within the British army did indeed have bagpipe players among their ranks.[[/note]]

* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal: Miss Price, Professor Emilius Browne, and the 3 children accidentally go visit, underwater in the ocean by the isle of Naboombu. There they see half dressed fish underwater, when their bed gets pulled up by a fishing hook, they arrive on the Isle of Naboombu and they meet a sailor bear who wears a shirt but no pants or shoes on.

* HistoricalInJoke: The whole plot of "a magic-user during WorldWarTwo decided to do her patriotic duty and keep the Nazis from invading England" [[ShownTheirWork has more than a little in common with the claim made by Gerald Gardner]], founder of modern UsefulNotes/{{Wicca}}, that [[http://mentalfloss.com/article/86145/operation-cone-power-when-british-witches-attacked-adolf-hitler he had witnessed a coven in the town of Highcliffe-on-Sea perform a ritual to project a cone of power into Hitler's brain and convince him not to invade]].

* BillBillJunkBill: When Eglantine is rummages through the extremely disorganized Portobello Road bookseller's stall, and instead finds a bunch of increasingly useless and irrelevant books which - amusingly - the seller and Emelius both list as though they're the most worthwhile things ever, to Eglantine's increasing irritation. This includes [[RhymesOnADime "A History of Potting" and "A Yearbook in Yachting."]]
