* CultClassic

to:

* CultClassicCultClassic: A failure with audiences and critics alike when it came out, it's now remembered as a nostalgic classic for 80s kids.
* HarsherInHindsight: The Nome King's door opening as a series of hands in the wall to welcome Dorothy in looks like a well-known shock site...



* HilariousInHindsight: Or a FunnyAneurysmMoment depending. The nome hands reaching out to pull open a passageway to the Nome King's ornament room rather resembles a certain well-known shock site.

** Fairuza Balk battling {{Wicked Witch}}es is hilarious if you know of her role as a crazy black magic practitioner in ''Film/TheCraft''. Not to mention that she became a Wiccan in real life.

* StrawmanHasAPoint: The Nome King points out that as the precious stones of the world are made and owned by Nomes, those humans who mined and used them are actually guilty of theft. True, it doesn't actually excuse him for invading Oz just to retrieve the Emeralds and turning the inhabitants to stone, but still...
** Apparently diplomacy and negotiating went right out the door when he became king.

* RewatchBonus: When she's in the hospital, Dorothy gets locked in Room 31. In Oz, Mombi keeps her original head in Cabinet 31.

* CompleteMonster: Princess Mombi somehow manages to outdo [[Film/TheWizardOfOz the Wicked Witch of the West]] in sheer unpleasantness: let's start with the asking price for helping [[BigBad the Nome King]]- [[OffWithHerHead the heads of several beautiful women.]] Mombi keeps these heads, still alive [[AndIMustScream and still conscious]], in a hall of cabinets; every so often, she'll "slip into something more comfortable" by swapping heads. And when Dorothy arrived in the Emerald City, Mombi had her imprisoned, fully intending to keep her there until she reached adulthood just so she could have a fully-mature head to add to her "collection."

* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: the whole soundtrack can go from eerie to sad or magnificent, and sprouts a wide variety of music, going from orchestra to silent era piano to a creepy mandolin or a modern techno for the Nome King.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: The Girl who rescues Dorothy at the Beginning [[spoiler: whom Dorothy sees as Ozma at the end]]. Is she just [[spoiler: Ozma's real world counterpart]] like how the other characters are, and if so did she drown? Is she [[spoiler: Ozma's soul]] reaching out to Dorothy, thus making her the same character? Or is she [[spoiler: Ozma's soul]] appearing to her as a figment of her imagination, as she get's into closed rooms, and the Doctors never seem to acknowledge her? If that's the case, can she interact with the real world in a limited capacity, seeing as she untied Dorothy, or was that also imagined, and she just wasn't tied in well.
