* DancingBear[=/=]SeinfeldIsUnfunny: In it's initial release, Fantasia was sold on the novelty of having visuals specifically created to match pre-existing music. While this novelty may be lost for most people, especially for those raised on music videos. Many others argue the overall quality of film itself, along with other aspects, has kept it from aging.

* MagnumOpus: Considered one of Disney's top contenders, and was originally intended to be as such by [[WaltDisney Uncle Walt]].

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: One [=YouTube=] comment brought this up regarding Zeus/Jupiter's behavior in the Pastoral symphony. He seemed to be going ''specifically'' for Dionysus/Bacchus with his lightning bolts, never seeming to actually ''hurt'' anyone else. The commenter said that maybe Zeus was just being a [[JerkassGod Jerkass god]] like he's normally been portrayed, disrupting a festival for no reason other than it amused him... or maybe he was simply trying to test his son in his own... unusual way by [[EnforcedMethodActing interrupting a celebration when he'd least expect it]].

* NightmareRetardant: The serenity to the "Ave Maria" segment, perfect foil to the terrifying "Night on Bald Mountain".

** Also, prior to the soundtrack bit, one of the double bass players initiates a short swing session in the orchestra by picking a few notes on his instrument.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The roadshow version of the original has a moment during one of the introductions where the orchestra's percussionist accidentally knocks over his chimes for no narrative purpose.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Apart from Mickey as the Sorcerer's Apprentice, who is the character everyone remembers? Let us give you a hint: [[EvilIsCool how many tropes listed on this page are dedicated to Chernabog?]]

* VindicatedByHistory: When it was first released, Fantasia was a box-office flop and the reaction from critics was polarizing at best (World War II had also broken out the year prior, cutting off the European cinema market; this also downed ''Pinocchio'', which had been released earlier in 1940, and it down Walt when the strike and the U.S. military took animators away from him for the rest of the decade). Nowadays, the film is considered one of the best of the Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon if not one of the best films of WesternAnimation period.

* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: ''VideoGame/CastleOfIllusion'' fans were not pleased with the Genesis adaptation of this movie. The gameplay was bad and it didn't even have Chernabog as a final boss!

** Same introduction also has Taylor start by saying, "You it's funny how wrong an artist can be about his own work." Tchaikovsky hated ''The Nutcracker Suite'', and Taylor says that's the most popular of his works, a classic case of MagnumOpusDissonance. This would apply to '''Walt Disney''' the next year with ''Disney/{{Dumbo}}'', a film that he was not fond of, but is considered to be one of the great Disney Animated Classics.
