* HeReallyCanAct: Vin Diesel as the Giant. He doesn't get much dialogue, but whenever the Giant speaks with his grunting and groaning, the mood is absolutely spot-on. The DVD features also reveal that less work was needed to create the mechanical sound from Diesel's vocals than you might think.

* MemeticMutation: Dean's facial expressions are remarkably well-animated, such that he's (More specifically, [[http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mbroc8dViU1qbt06p.png him holding his coffee mug]]) become a source for reaction images on certain parts of Website/FourChan.

* NarmCharm: Hogarth's incredibly sincere "I love you" to the Giant just before his [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice]] has been poked fun at even by die-hard fans for how weirdly out-of-place and even unnecessary it is. But it just works!

* SacredCow: Considering how it, to this day, makes 30-year old men cry tears both [[ManlyTears manly]] [[InelegantBlubbering and not so manly,]] criticizing this film online is a very bad idea. You do not call this movie bad. You do ''[[DudeNotFunny not]]'' make fun of the tragic scene with the deer dying. And you absolutely do not, repeat, ''do not'' make fun of the Giant's [[spoiler: HeroicSacrifice.]]

Added DiffLines:

* AwardSnub: Given its tremendous critical acclaim, it appeared eligible to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, but unfortunately didn't.


Added DiffLines:

** In addition, the Superman references becomes ironic as Christopher [=McDonald=], who plays the BigBad Kent Mansley, had voiced Superman's father Jor-El in ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'' as well as ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' and later a middle-aged Superman in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond''.

* ValuesDissonance: A child walking into a adult man's house alone in the middle of the night and later being left alone with a different grown male stranger, both things viewed very differently today than the time period the film is set in. The fact the interrogation scene with the second stranger has a unintentional rape vibe to it emphasizes this.

* MisaimedMarketing: One of the only trailers released for the film was a series of out-of-context clips scored to Music/{{Scorpions}}' "Rock You Like A Hurricane." It had nothing to do with the movie and the crew were horrified.



** Creator/CartoonNetwork once did a Memorial Day special of airing the movie over and over for three days in a row. [[TropesAreTools And it still didn't get old]]. This certainly helped the film become the CultClassic it is today.
