* IncestSubtext: Might be a ValuesDissonance thing, but a scene from early on in the movie will raise an eyebrow or two - when Achmed protects his sister Dinarzade from the sorcerer. They proceed to stare at each other intensely, with Dinarzade carressing Achmed's cheek.

* StopMotion: Being the oldest animated feature film period, this is also the oldest surviving example of stop motion animation, although the trope actually dates back at least as far as ''Film/TheCameramansRevenge'' (1912).
