* ExecutiveMeddling: This movie was conceived back when ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' was....but the executives didn't allow Musker and Clements to make it until much, much later, and when it was made, the [[NeverTrustATrailer marketing campaign]] ensured not many people saw it by playing up the TotallyRadical aspects of it to the point of being obnoxious.
