* WhatMeasureIsANonCute: Dolphins and whales = good. Sharks = bad. Tentacles and Oddy are also given a head that resembles CasperTheFriendlyGhost [[BeautyEqualsGoodness because the idea of a hideous or bizarre-looking good guy is unthinkable.]] In the sequel, ''clams'' are also evil - they serve as back up singers for and congratulate the shark -, even though they look like generic cartoony bivalves.

** Speaking of said iceberg, the sharks keeping the Titanic from dodging it was pointless because the ship had too much momentum to swerve in time. All they accomplished was putting themselves in unnecessary danger.

The plot is set on a voyage of the ''UsefulNotes/RMSTitanic'', and concerns the romance between a rich man's daughter Elizabeth, and a gypsy who calls himself Don Juan. Maltravers (called Baron Vandertilt in the dub of the sequel) is the unscrupulous owner of a whale hunting company, who wishes to own whaling rights of all seas owned by Elizabeth's father. He intends to marry Elizabeth, and then make her father to sign over all whaling rights to him. [[DidntThinkThisThrough Oh, and then he intends to cover his tracks by sinking]] the ''Titanic'' ship afterwards. You know, because it wasn't depressing enough that it was an iceberg that did it. Talking mice, dogs and undersea animals make an appearance.

Unlike that other ''Titanic'' cartoon though, this one has actually a sequel called '''''In Search of the Titanic''''', also titled ''Tentacolino'', which takes place three years after the first installment. ''In Search of the Titanic'' has little screen time for the actual ''Titanic'' ship and most of it takes place in Atlantis. It also features some musical numbers which compete with those in ''WesternAnimation/TitanicTheLegendGoesOn''.

The movie was produced by Creator/MondoTV, who prior to making this helped co-produce the anime ''Anime/CinderellaMonogatari'' with Tatsunoko. Later they would go on to produce the cartoon ''WesternAnimation/AngelsFriends''.

** In the second film, there's a whole menagerie of villains, so it's kind of hard to tell. But the most vocal and ambitious one is The (self-proclaimed) Emperor.

* {{Disneyfication}}: A ''grossly'' extreme example. In the first film, the ship is rescued from sinking by a giant octopus [[TheAtoner atoning]] for having chucked the iceberg in the ship's way in the first place. And in this one, ''everyone survives'', even the captain and the band. The only possible saving throw is the ending, which implies that the narrator of the story, as a sailor, exaggerates and makes up stuff. This does absolutely nothing to excuse the sequel, which involves mermaids, Atlantis, talking toys, and evil mice.

* TalkingAnimal: Unlike [[WesternAnimation/TitanicTheLegendGoesOn that other Titanic cartoon]], humans and animals have no problem communicating with each other. At first, it appears that the heroine Elizabeth has been given a special magical gift due to being in the right place at the right time doing the right thing by accident (namely, shedding a tear at night over the rail of the ship causing it touch a dolphin), but soon afterwards, we see that other human characters have no problems speaking with animals either. Don Juan in particular was supposed to be able to understand the animals because his soul was in tune with Elizabeth's (or something like that).

* UnreliableNarrator: This was implied (whether or not on purpose) at the end of the movie, when Top Connors, the grandfather mouse, finishes telling his grandchildren the story. His wife Stella (who had also been on the ''Titanic'' as a passenger) tells the kids that "your grandfather loves to tell stories, but like all sailors you must not take everything he says seriously." (The narrator is absent in the sequel, though.)

'''''The Legend of the Titanic''''' is a full-length animation [[VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory loosely based]] on the infamous ''Titanic'' disaster, specifically the recent hit ''Film/{{Titanic 1997}}''. It was released in 1999. Not to be confused with that '''other''' ''Titanic'' cartoon called ''WesternAnimation/TitanicTheLegendGoesOn''.
