* AccidentalTruth: When the Queen of the Moon's head starts moaning in a very sensual way while they're traveling, the Baron tells Sally, "The King is tickling her feet," instead of what all the adults are thinking. The film then shows two bodies moving on the bed, the covers slip, and... the King is tickling his wife's feet.

* AccidentalTruth: When the Queen of the Moon's head (currently detached from her body) starts moaning in a very sensual way while they're traveling, the Baron tells Sally, "The King "Her body is with The King, and he's...um, tickling her feet," instead of what all the adults are thinking. The film then shows two bodies moving on the bed, the covers slip, and... the King is tickling his wife's feet.

** FridgeBrilliance in the sense that these are indeed famous last words. They were said by Irish rebel Robert Emmett in 1803, when the executioner asked him whether he was ready for his execution.

** Vulcan also gets like this. Given that the Baron was openly flirting with, and then kissing, his wife (and that Venus wasn't known for being the most faithful wife in Greek mythology), yeah.
* BasedOnATrueStory: Well, not really, but [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baron_Munchhausen Munchhausen was a real person]] (who accumulated his tall tales while fighting as a mercenary, mostly for the Russians against the Turks).

* CraniumChase: The King of The Moon's head prefers to stay off its body, which fills it with animalistic urges. There is a scene with the body chasing after the flying head.
* CrapsackWorld: The nameless European city under constant bombardment from the Turks is this.

** The Sultan does not take the news that his treasury has been completely emptied by his guests very well, beheading his treasurer on the spot and supposedly starting the whole war that acts as the main plot for the movie, in an attempt to kill Munchausen.
