* 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.

* 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.

** The scene was probably inserted just to give Ben Vereen his OneSceneWonder.

** 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.

** It stands alone as one of the unique western animated movies that ''aren't'' "[[DisneyPrincess princess]] [[WesternAnimation/{{Anastasia}} movies]]" with a female central protagonist, something much desired for nowadays and even more rare when it was released.

* UnfortunateImplications: Along with part of MightyWhitey, apparently the birds who know the land well and have wings cannot save Bosworth who is very ''slowly'' sinking, they just give up and have the funeral. But the kids who know nothing of the land and lack that JiveTurkey accent easily get him out.
