** 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.



* 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 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.]] This is why Abigail's bravery is so highly regarded by the others. This is a pretty intense scene for a G-Rated movie.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qs1rTn81ODQ "Once Upon a Time With Me".]] [[SandInMyEyes Just...that song.]]
** I'm sorry, but it's got nothing on [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PuPiAA3onVI "Please Wake Up."]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MMCgW0ZMqGQ "The Forest"]] isn't too shabby either. The soundtrack as a whole is one of Music/JamesHorner's most overlooked and underrated film scores.

Added DiffLines:

* FridgeHorror: Cornelius and his younger sister, Michelle's mother, [[spoiler:narrowly escaped the gassing that killed their parents.]] Years later, [[spoiler:the sister met the exact same fate.]]
** What's more, the audience is shown the flashback involving the younger version of Michelle's mother just minutes ''after'' [[spoiler: she dies]].

** 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.

* 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 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).

* TearJerker: Oh yes...
** Just TRY listening to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wLOQg4FeKH0 Please Wake Up]] without shedding a tear. This troper damn near had to turn the movie off for a minute. It's flat out heartbreaking.
*** Even Michael Crawford himself had a hard time not crying while recording that song.
** Michelle's DisneyDeath. [[spoiler: Don't worry; she recovers. Her parents on the other hand [[KilledOffForReal weren't so fortunate.]]]]
** The end of the movie where all of the families are reunited, [[spoiler: and when Cornelius tells Michelle that though he can't ever replace her mother and father, he'll do his best to raise her.]]
** Cornelius's backstory, where he reveals that his own parents were trapped by poachers when he and his [[spoiler:recently deceased]] sister were furlings.
