Added DiffLines:

* GeniusBonus: In the Miramax cut, there is the Thief's mention of only hearing about soap in storybooks and songs. At the time of the film's setting, soap was considered more of a luxury rather than an essential for daily living, with everyone who couldn't afford it attending bath houses. Considering the Thief's occupation and the flies around his head, it is possible that he was denied entry to such establishments and had to live with the smell and the flies.

* MisBlamed: Calvert, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Thief_and_the_Cobbler#Production_under_Fred_Calvert_.281992-1993.29 who really liked Williams animation and tried to keep as much of the original as he could]], gets most of the flack for the shoddy animation, but the Completion Company forced him to finish ''Thief'' as cheaply as possible and had the movie outsourced ''twice''. Then again, it ''was'' his decision to add dialogue where it wasn't needed.

* NauseaFuel: Due to the camera angels and the extremely fluid animation on the 3D objects, it can be pretty easy to watch the war machine falling apart while getting a bit of motion sickness.

* OvershadowedByControversy: By this point, the story of the film's exhaustive production, Williams' tenacity to make it perfect, and its eventual incomplete fate are far more well-known than what actually happens in it.

* FanonDiscontinuity: To both fans and non-fans of Richard Williams, the Mirimax version does not exist.

* AntiClimaxBoss: After being built up for most of the film as the ultimate threat to the Golden City, One-Eye is swiftly defeated ''just outside it's limits''. By a tack.

** Also, the film was finally released under the title "Princess and the Cobbler" in September 1993. A month later, Creator/VincentPrice passed away. So Zigzag's final line "For Zigzag then, this is....the end!" is oddly prophetic.

* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad Mighty One-Eye]], from the original workprint and ''The Recobbled Cut'', is a brutal warlord who introduces himself in the aftermath of a complete massacre of an army he and his army have defeated, [[AtopAMountainOfCorpses forming a mountain of hundreds of corpses]] upon which One Eye announces his intent to bring the Golden City and all within to destruction. Regularly making a habit of abusing his personal harem and using them as living furniture, One Eye spitefully orders the treacherous wizard [[EvilChancellor Zigzag]] thrown to his pet alligators [[UngratefulBastard even after Zigzag provides him with the means to invade the Golden City]]. One Eye is implied to make a regular habit out of mass slaughter and seeks to annihilate the Golden City purely as a show of his [[BloodKnight bloodthirsty might]].

* EvilIsCool: The One-Eye's giant steampunk war machine is ''awesome'', and the animation for its scenes is [[VisualEffectsOfAwesome jaw-droppingly]] [[AwesomeArt brilliant]] even by the ''extremely'' high standards of the rest of the film.
