* Redubbing: The Allied Filmmakers and Miramax editions redubbed the main British voices with American ones.
* RewardedAsATraitorDeserves: Since they didnt actually win, One-Eye never gets around to giving Zig Zag this, but every interaction they have concerning their plan seems to indicate One-Eye intended this fate for him.

** While Princess [=YumYum=] is bathing, the Thief steals two of her back scratchers. In the re-cuts, nothing comes of it. In the original version, the Thief [[ChekhovsGun uses them to escape having his hands cut off]].

* ActuallyPrettyFunny: Unintentional one from the Creator/MiramaxFilms version. After hearing [[LullDestruction non-stop narration from Tack The Cobbler]], we get this line from him after Princess Yum Yum leaves the room with her Grandmother: ''"Why don't I ever talk when it matters?"''

'''''The Thief and the Cobbler''''' was directed by Creator/RichardWilliams (of ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'' fame). At more than 30 years, it holds the record for the longest production time for a motion picture - much of it spent in DevelopmentHell. Also goes under the titles '''''The Princess and the Cobbler''''' and '''''Arabian Knight''''', depending on which version you're watching. Often considered one of the lost treasures of [[WesternAnimation animation]] (some critics consider it the [[MissingEpisode greatest unfinished film of all time]]) the movie began as a pet project which Williams and a few colleagues worked on out of his garage. It was picked up by a studio after Williams won an Oscar for ''Roger Rabbit'', who eventually fired Williams for going over budget and being fifteen minutes short of footage by the deadline. Williams is an ''incredibly'' meticulous animator so his work takes a really, really long time to produce, even by animation standards. This amazing attention to detail really shows in the film; but it may also be what doomed it to incomplete status.

* IntangibleTheft: The Thief steals the MacGuffin from a collapsing death machine, the words [[PaintingTheFourthWall "The End" at the end of the movie]] and ''[[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou the film from the projector!]]''* InkSuitActor: After VincentPrice was cast as Zigzag's voice, his design was modified to resemble Price. This is more obvious when Williams shows his caricature of Price in Literature/TheAnimatorsSurvivalKit -- it resembles Zigzag quite a lot!

* ImpossibleThief: Stealing the Golden Balls while [[spoiler: the death machine collapses]], stealing ''The End'', stealing '''the film from the projector'''? There's a reason one of the working titles was ''The Thief Who Never Gave Up'' (he even steals from his OWN POCKET in one scene!).
* InkSuitActor: After VincentPrice was cast as Zigzag's voice, his design was modified to resemble Price. This is more obvious when Williams shows his caricature of Price in Literature/TheAnimatorsSurvivalKit -- it resembles Zigzag quite a lot!
