* CluelessAesop: So, Ivan is turned into a half-man half-bear and has to perform a good deed to change back, but after doing numerous good deeds he remains a bear. Finally, when he's about to give up he realizes the old lady he helped earlier lost her walking stick and goes to return it to her. Before he can, though, the stick disappears and he returns to human form. The implication was supposed to be that this was the only true good deed because he was going to return the stick purely because he knew it was the right thing, while all his other good deeds were done only because he thought it would change him back. The problem is that even if he was only doing good for his own reasons he was actually legitimately helping people before, whereas in this case he never actually returned the stick (it turned out to be one of Father Mushrooms illusions and disappeared from his hands as soon as he picked it up). As a result, the message unintentionally comes across as "speculating about good deeds is better than doing them."

Of course, he ''had'' originally run off to do good deeds even as Father Mushroom was trying to explain that ''that wasn't how it worked'', so Father Mushroom apparently had to throw something together at the last minute.

* CatsAreMean: Baba Yaga's cat, who tricks Nastenka into getting herself frozen. Though Nastenka was [[TooDumbToLive dense enough to reach out and touch the magical ice staff that she knew froze people when the cat just walked past it]], so it's hard to pin the blame on the cat.

* CluelessAesop: So, Ivan is turned into a bear and has to do a good deed to change back. He does numerous good deeds, but never turns back until eventually he realizes the old woman he helped lost he walking stick and goes to return it to her. The reason was supposed to be because he did the other good deeds only so he could change back, this was the first one he did only because he knew it was right. The thing is, he never actually returns the stick - it turns out to have been one of Father Mushroom's illusions and disappears in his hands. As a result, the message inadvertently comes across as "speculating about doing good deeds is better than doing them."
