* FakeNationality - In the live-action movie, the "Canarsie Kumquats" are obviously New York Italian-Americans unconvincingly masquerading as a Canadian First Nations tribe. This appears to be a sly reference to Iron Eyes Cody, the Sicilian-American CryingIndian.
* HilariousInHindsight: Since Creator/SarahJessicaParker has been made fun of for looking like a horse, her role as Nell in the live-action movie makes her attraction to Dudley's horse a lot funnier. They might make a good couple.
* [[SoBadItsGood So Bad, It's Good]]: Alfred Molina's [[HamAndCheese outrageously hammy]] performance as Snidely Whiplash manages to make the otherwise forgettable live-action movie worth seeing once.
