Added DiffLines:
* CluelessAesop: In response to the [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot undermentioned review]] by Creator/GeneSiskel, Creator/RogerEbert criticized the film for it ineptness in endorsing reading: it takes familiar stories from horror, adventure, and fantasy, but [[AdaptationDistillation simplifies the content of those stories]] to the point where they resemble video games rather than literature.

Added DiffLines:
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: This was {{Gene Siskel}}'s opinion of this movie; while he wanted to appreciate its premise and aesop, he couldn't look past the lack of story and [[ItsShortSoItSucks length]].

** Likewise, Fantasy calling out to Mother Goose when the latter flies by also becomes humorous once you remember Whoopi Goldberg later voiced Mother Goose herself in the nursery rhyme-themed episode of ''WesternAnimation/HappilyEverAfterFairyTalesforEveryChild.''

* HilariousInHindsight: Adventure calling Captain Ahab "my kind of guy" becomes quite funny once you realize that Patrick Stewart, his voice actor, later ''played'' Ahab in a TV movie version of ''Literature/MobyDick'' three years later.

* SOOkayItsAverage: A common complaint. The plot has potential and the animation is gorgeous, but the story never reaches beyond just being kind of interesting.

* CultClassicCultClassic: A favorite among certain Trekker groups thanks to it's [[AllStarCast all-Trek cast]]. It's also a favorite film among the small group of library lovers and bookworms. * GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: The movie arguably fared much better in Japan, if the amount of merchandise coming from the country back in those days are any indication.

Moving to its own page.
* TearJerker: A small one, but when Adventure and Richard think that Horror and Fantasy have drowned counts. Especially considering Richard's quiet line as he curls into himself. -->'''Richard:''' ''"You three are the only friends I've ever had..."''
