* VindicatedByHistory: When it was first released, ''Fantasia'' was a box-office flop and the reaction from critics was polarizing at best (UsefulNotes/WorldWarII had also broken out the year prior, cutting off the European cinema market; this also downed ''Disney/{{Pinocchio}}'', which had been released earlier in 1940, and it downed 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.

* AnimationAgeGhetto: ''Fantasia'' began as a conscious attempt to avert this. With a focus on classical music, as well as some family-unfriendly imagery (for instance, it was the only Disney movie to show ''topless women''), this film was Disney's first attempt to make a film that was serious and "artistic". Sadly, the film's initial box-office failure meant that no more like it were ever made.
** However, it should be useful to note that the modern version of the ghetto didn't come until the 1960s.

** The whole centaur section, arguably. With or without Sunflower, the scene basically depicts all centaurettes as vain, lazy, and/or boy-crazy, with nothing to do or think about except fixing up their hair, makeup, and [[AccessoryWearingCartoonAnimal accessories]] to look pretty. What's more, the AmazingTechnicolorPopulation of centaurs and centaurettes [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything all pair up with a partner of the exact same color]].

* HypeBacklash: Many people who prefer more narrative-driven works find the film to be boring due to its lack of a true story, and fail to see it as the masterpiece everyone else hypes it up to be.

* SugarWiki/SweetDreamsFuel: The entire "Pastoral Symphony" segment. Really, you have to wonder if Walt managed to create [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Equestria]] half a century before Creator/LaurenFaust.

** 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.

** 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. Note that the bass riff setting off the short jam session is ripped, note by note, from the opening of the fourth movement of the Pastoral Symphony. The bass player actually ''converts a Beethoven piece into a jazz tune''.
