* AdaptationDisplacement: Apparently it was a book first.
* AllAnimationIsDisney: And in an interesting twist, it is also sometimes mistaken for a Creator/DonBluth movie, which of course it also isn't (instead, it was produced by Creator/HannaBarbera, out of all companies.) Though its posters and trailers which proudly proclaimed "from the creator of WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail" would have you think otherwise (they mean David Kirschner, not Bluth).

** The scene was probably inserted just to give Ben Vereen his OneSceneWonder. It was also some much-needed comic relief to distract a bit from the life-or-death nature of the heroes' quest.



** The scene with the owl counts for this all too well.
*** Abigail's [[spoiler: surprisingly sharp teeth]].
** And the scene where [[spoiler: the humans return to clean up the mess, and Edgar gets caught in a trap. Luckily, it stops being scary when one of the humans frees Edgar and proves that not all HumansAreBastards]].

* SoOkayItsAverage: The consensus for those who have actually seen it but aren't a part of it's cult following is that there is a lot to admire about it (the pretty animation, being a gentler GreenAesop, having a non-stereotypical female lead), but the story and characters are mostly boring.

* ValuesResonance: After things like the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, this film and its {{a|nAesop}}esop are still particularly relevant.
** It stands alone as one of the unique western animated movies that ''aren't'' "[[Franchise/DisneyPrincess princess]] [[WesternAnimation/{{Anastasia}} movies]]" with a female central protagonist, something much desired for nowadays and even more rare when it was released.

* NightmareFuel: The music becomes a lot scarier after [[spoiler: the gas leak from the truck spreads into the forest]], but this is taken UpToEleven when a freaked-out Michelle runs off and eventually makes it into her house [[spoiler: which is full of poisonous gas]] causing everyone to panic and Abigail runs in after her. Now keep in mind that Abigail is a ''young girl'' going down an underground passage [[spoiler: full of deadly gas]] and when she finally makes it to the bottom, what's the first thing she sees? [[spoiler: The bodies of Michelle's dead parents.]] This is all while trying to reach and move her younger friend's body to safety, [[spoiler: because she had been poisoned by the gas and was now unconscious and close to death herself as a result, all the while trying to keep her mouth covered so ''she'' doesn't inhale any gas too.]] This is why Abigail's bravery is so highly regarded by the others. This is a pretty intense scene for a G-Rated movie.
