''[=FernGully=]'' did only moderately well at the box office, at least in comparison to that ''other'' [[Disney/{{Aladdin}} animated film featuring Robin Williams that was released in 1992]].

1992]], but it wasn't really a ''bad'' movie; it just oozed Aesop from every available pore.

* LargeHam: Hexxus. TimCurry was enjoying himself immensely. Batty Koda also gets some hammy moments because... hell, it's Robin freakin' Williams. The man was ''made'' of ham.

Added DiffLines:

* Tomboy: Crysta would much rather prefer looking above the canopy, exploring, and goofing off and hanging out with Pips and his biker beetle gang than listen to Magi Lune's lectures. Her pixie cut is also evidence of her tomboyishness.

* AnimalTesting: Batty Koda's entire backstory.

* AnimalTesting: Batty Koda's entire backstory. Being tested on has also made him crazy as a result.



** Batty is too small. He's definitely a fruit bat. But why is he only slightly taller than the fairies/Zak, who seem to be only a few inches tall at best? Flying Foxes are the largest bats in the ''world''. With wingspans up to ''six feet wide''. Even if you take into account possible stunted growth that's small. Furthermore, he says his "radar's all shut up", but fruit bats can't echolocate.
*** May not be all that strange. It takes little research to find that, while the majority of fruit bats are huge, a few species are very small, with one species never exceeding two and a half inches. Additionally, while most fruit bats don't echolocate, there are a few that do. They don't entirely rely on it, using it only in dark places like caves, but they possess the ability.



* [[BeingTorturedMakesYouEvil Being Experimented On Makes You Crazy]]: Poor, ''poor'' Batty.

* SeldomSeenSpecies: Be honest. Prior to learning about this movie, did you even think "goanna", was a ''word''? Much less a species of lizard?

'''''[=FernGully=]''''', or to go by its full title, '''''[=FernGully=]: The Last Rainforest''''', is a 1992 animated feature from Creator/TwentiethCenturyFox, and is [[FilmOfTheBook based on the children's book of the same title]], written by Diana Young. It takes place in an Australian rainforest (though, strangely, [[NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent none of the humans even try to fake an Australian accent]]). Within is the titular MagicalLand, "[=FernGully=]", which is inhabited by a wide variety of [[FairyCompanion Fairy Creatures]]. They are led by the wise Magi Lune, who is currently teaching her young protege, [[FairySexy Crysta]], the secrets of the forest. Here, Fairies believe that humans are extinct, having been last seen fleeing an attack by the spirit of destruction, Hexxus. But venturing outside [=FernGully=], Crysta accidentally discovers a human logging operation. After meeting an insane fruit bat named Batty Koda (voiced by Creator/RobinWilliams), and accidentally shrinking one of the humans, Zak, down to her size, Crysta has to face the accidentally released Hexxus (voiced by Creator/TimCurry), who lives off pollution and threatens to destroy the forest.
