* ReasonYouSuckSpeech: Regarding Captain Sternn..
-->'''Hanover Fiste:''' He's nothing but a low-down, double-dealing, backstabbing, larcenous perverted worm! ''Hangin's'' too good for him. ''Burnin's'' too good for him! He should be torn into little bitsy pieces and ''buried alive!''

* DemotedToExtra: In "So Beautiful, So Dangerous," the Loc-Nar only appears as a bauble on Gloria's necklace at the beginning of the segment. At most, all it does is make Dr. Anrak freak out and attack Gloria; other than that, it plays absolutely NO role in the story. Which makes one wonder why the Loc-Nar bothered to show that story to the little girl in the first place.
** It was intended to have a larger role, and would have had the vignette not ended abruptly. See WhatHappenedToTheMouse, below.

place. It was intended to have a larger role, and would have had the vignette not ended abruptly. See WhatHappenedToTheMouse, below.



* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: "So Beautiful, So Dangerous" starts out with government officials discussing mysterious human mutations, and Dr. Anrak seems to be part of a cover-up that is later implied to involve Zeke, Edsel, and the robot. Except the mutation story is completely and utterly forgotten when said aliens abduct Dr. Anrak and Gloria.
** The behind-the-scenes material on disc implies that this story was [[NoPunIntended heavily]] edited from the original treatment - apparently to the point where it just stops arbitrarily instead of ending.
*** In fact, much that went wrong with this film (particularly the inconsistent animation style, some poor writing in places, and sections that just stop or don't really make sense or were entirely left out like an intended link between Captain Sternn and B-17) can be seen as a combination of inexperience, poor planning, and just plain not enough time and money being spent on the project.

** "Den". After Norl splits up with Den during the attempt to steal the Loc-Nar from the Queen, he is never seen again. Since his master Ard ends up with the Loc-Nar, Norl presumably acquired it and returned it to him. However, he doesn't appear during the final battle between the Queen and Ard.

* '''Den''', originally a [[GeekPhysiques skinny]], nerdy kid named Dan (voiced by Creator/JohnCandy), gets [[TrappedInAnotherWorld sucked into Neverwhere]], becomes a [[BaldOfAwesome bald]], naked, [[BarbarianHero musclebound hunk]] ([[WTHCastingAgency still voiced by John Candy]]) that every woman in the story (equally [[FanService naked and buxom]]) apparently throws herself at, and involves himself in a fight between an [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen evil queen]] and an [[{{Immortality}} unkillable]] [[SissyVillain dandy]] to save [[DamselInDistress the girl]] he encountered upon arrival. One of the better received stories, thanks in part to Candy's narration giving the macho fantasy a refreshingly lighthearted humourous touch that takes away none of the eroticism. Due to the fairly consistent female nudity, this segment is generally excised from TV prints of the movie altogether. (Incidentally, this is one of the few segments of the movie to have no songs--Music/ElmerBernstein's score is front and centre here.)
