Added DiffLines:

* EnsembleDarkhorse: [[TheQuietOne Morkubine Porcupine]] is often this for viewers. Not only is he one of the few individuals outside of the main characters who's not a raging JerkAss, but his monosyllabic punchlines are also consistently hilarious.

Added DiffLines:

** The [[ShowWithinAShow Movie Within the Movie]] at the end portrays a space-faring Chicken Little and his crew battling aliens with the song "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" playing in the background. Nine years later, the song would be used again in [[Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy another Disney film]] that also dealt with an outer space crew fighting evil aliens.

Added DiffLines:

* OneSceneWonder: Creator/AdamWest as the actor playing Chicken Little in the [[ShowWithinAShow Movie Within the Movie]] at the end of the film. So glorious is his LargeHam that many wished that ''he'' was the actual main character.

* CriticalDissonance: The film received generally negative reviews from critics, and many Disney fans, in retrospect, consider it (along with the previous ''Disney/HomeOnTheRange'') to be among the weakest films in, if not their worst film of the Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon. Despite this, the film made $135 million at the domestic box office (their biggest domestic hit since ''Disney/LiloAndStitch'') and $314 million worldwide (their biggest worldwide hit since ''Disney/{{Dinosaur}}'').
* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: You can tell this film was trying (and failed) to emulate [[Creator/DreamworksAnimation DreamWorks]]' then-huge brand of snarky, in-your-face "edgy" humor by just how cynical it is, from how the main character is bullied by his entire town, his father being openly ashamed of him and passively having one character be [[MindRape mind raped]].

** The fact that [[ExecutiveMeddling Michael Eisner]] wanted to push for this style just to beat DreamWorks founder/Disney Renaissance alumnus Jeffrey Katzenberg [[BeatThemAtTheirOwnGame at his own game]] doesn't help matters.

* WTHCastingAgency: The voice actors of Chicken, Abby and Runt [[VocalDissonance don't even attempt to sound like kids]], though the film never is clear on whether they're supposed to be young children or teenagers. This can be justified since WordOfGod states that Chicken Little (at least) is a "teenager" around 12-13 years old. And what was the point of casting Patrick Stewart for barely over a minute of dialogue (other than [[OneSceneWonder Patrick Stewart is ''awesome'', of corse]])?
