''Allegro Non Troppo'' (but there are tropes) is an Italian animated film functioning as a parody of Disney's ''Disney/{{Fantasia}}''. Like ''Fantasia'', ''Allegro Non Troppo'' melds classical music with animation, the sequences ranging from [[IntoxicationEnsues utterly bizarre]] to [[TearJerker depressing beyond belief]]. Between the pieces are short, sepia-tone, live-action shots of the orchestra and the animator. Pieces played in the film are:
* ''Prélude ŕ l'aprčs-midi d'un faune'' by Claude Debussy--A parody of Beethoven's Pastorale from ''Fantasia'', where an elderly faun tries to get a nymph for himself, but fails every time.
* ''Slavonic Dance No. 7 Op. 46'' by Antonín Dvořák -A caveman sets out to build better dwellings than the other cavemen, who repeatedly mimic every act he does.
* ''Boléro'' by Maurice Ravel--Possibly the film's most famous sequence, where a soda bottle left on a wasteland creates an evolution of bizarre creatures in a parody of The Rite of Spring from ''Fantasia''.
* ''Valse Triste'' by Jean Sibelius--The film's saddest piece, in which a small cat is left in a destroyed house, remembering the good times spent there only to have reality come crashing upon it.
* ''Concerto in C major for 2 Oboes, 2 Clarinets, Strings and Continuo RV 559 I. Larghetto - (Allegro)'' by Antonio Vivaldi--A bee tries to enjoy a meal on a flower only to have a rowdy couple thwart her attempts.
* ''The Firebird'' by Igor Stravinsky--God makes Adam and Eve and the serpent tries to get them to eat the apple of knowledge. When they refuse, the serpent eats it himself and is thrown into a hellish environment of Western materialism and commercialism.

!!This film provides examples of:

* AffectionateParody: Despite needling Disney, this movie does a great job of capturing Fantasia's flavor.
* AlternateContinuity: Ever wonder what would happen if Adam and Eve didn't eat that apple?
* BarbieDollAnatomy: Averted. Since it's a European film, it's not afraid to show some nudity.
* BlackEyesOfEvil: The monkey in Bolero.
* BigDamnHero Moment: Though it's more TrueNeutral as it is done during the march of evolution, a sauropod creature saves an aquatic life form from being eaten by a squid life form.
* BreatherEpisode: You'll be glad for the lighthearted piece with the bee after "Valse Triste".
* DeadAllAlong: The[[spoiler: cat at the end of "Valse Triste".]]
* DeliberatelyMonochrome
* DerangedAnimation: The ''Firebird'' sequence is this, without a doubt.
** "Bolero" is this with its rapidly evolving alien creatures
* DownerEnding: Especially Bolero
* EmpathyDollShot: At the beginning of ''Valse Triste''.
* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys: [[spoiler:[[InvertedTrope Inverted]] in the second half of ''Boléro'', where a demonic monkey species slowly grows in dominance and eventually kills off the rest of the species.]]
* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath
* FaunsAndSatyrs
* FromNobodyToNightmare: The evil monkey starts off as a confused inhabitant of the forest, who later leaves with the rest of the animals. Bitter about it, the monkey starts off as a JerkAss whose purpose is to frighten the other animals during the march. However as it discovers the use of tools, it becomes more [[MoralEventHorizon vile as it begins murdering other animals in order to take their place in the line of evolution]] and [[ForTheEvulz begins to burn animals to death with sickening delight after discovering fire]] and by the finale (through leaping ahead of the line by a long shot) the monkey has become a monster [[spoiler: by killing all the animals in the construction of its new civilization as it admires its work, now fully evolved into a towering giant admiring its work...the creature known as Man]]
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: The [[spoiler: monkey]] at the end of ''Boléro''.
* HappyEnding:Parodied. Even though the words "HAPPY END" appear as the movie finishes, the actual conclusion of the movie feels more like a GainaxEnding.
* HilarityEnsues
* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: Central theme in ''Bolero'' and ''Concerto in C major''. ''Slavonic Dance'' and ''Firebird'' also depict humanity/civilization as a bad thing.
* IntoxicationEnsues
* ItsBeenDone: The director gushes about the originality of his concept. Then he gets a phone call...
* {{Panspermia}}: Spoofed on "Boléro". Apparently, the primordial soup was actually Coke.
* PublicDomainSoundtrack: The main concept of the film.
* RogerRabbitEffect: The cartoon characters occassionally wander into the live-action.
* ScareChord
* TakeThat
** The conductor couldn't care less that they're ripping off some guy called "Grisney".
** In-universe example: After seeing the conductor torment the animator for three full segments, is it any wonder that the man [[spoiler: actually the evil monkey]] at the end of ''Boléro'' so strongly resembles him?
