!!''The King And I'' contains examples of:

* EarWorm: "Shall we dance? One, two, three, and... On a bright cloud of music, shall we fly? One, two, three, and..."
* FairForItsDay: The Asian characters may seem slightly stereotypical today, but in 1951 (compared with the usual caricatures of Asians of the time), they were decidedly anti racist.
* HilariousInHindsight:
** The King studying the Bible and telling Anna, "I think your Moses shall have been a fool." Five years after ''The King and I'''s Broadway premiere, Creator/YulBrynner would play both the King in the movie and Ramesses (Moses' adversary) in ''Film/TheTenCommandments''.
** The King suggesting he'll send WarElephants to help AbrahamLincoln in the Civil War. Becomes amusing if you've seen Yul Brynner in ''Film/TheMagnificentSeven'' where he personally acts as the cavalry.
** In the film, Creator/DeborahKerr's Anna being shocked at multiple wives. Years earlier, Kerr had starred in ''Young Bess'' - playing Catherine Parr, the sixth wife of HenryVIII.
** The King states he should build a fence around Siam to keep out foreign influence. This became utterly hilarious in 2015 thanks to comments made by [[Creator/DonaldTrump a certain US Presidential candidate]]. In fact, it became so funny, the King and the Kralahome now pause to let the audience laugh and applaud. The joke became even ''funnier'' after the 2016 US Presidential Election.
* MemeticMutation: "Et cetera, et cetera, et cetera!" (The real King Mongkut used this in his English versions of official documents all the time.)

!!"WesternAnimation/TheKingAndI" 1999 musical contains these tropes:
* AntiClimaxBoss: No punches were thrown when Kralahome was finally cornered and captured as he had already locked himself in the guard tower first.
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: When the King sings "A Puzzlement" and the ConspicuousCGI statues attack him.
** The encounter with the dragon also counts, [[UnusuallyUninterestingSight an incident that goes unmentioned after the fact]].
* ClicheStorm: EvilChancellor? Check. GratuitousAnimalSidekick? Check. DisneyDeath? Check!
* EthnicScrappy: Master Little.
* FridgeLogic: The hilariously racist butchered English. All of the royal family seem to conveniently know the exact same amount of English, none know more or less, and none of them ever speak their native tongue, even when they are alone in a room they talk in fractured English. But [[WickedCultured the main villain is fluent]].
** If Kralahome's plan is to make the king look like a barbarian to Anna, why does he summon a dragon to scare her away, or try to kill her son?
* {{Narm}}: Anna and the crew warding off the dragon by ''singing and whistling''. Made even more incredulous by the fact that it ''works''.
** When the king finds out about his son's relationship, his "Who, who, who?" is hilarious.

* TheScrappy: Most of the animal sidekicks, especially the monkey, probably qualify, as they are added to the animated feature solely for poorly-timed comedy relief.
* SoOkayItsAverage: While it's inferior to the original play/film for [[{{Disneyfication}} obvious reasons]], the animation in this version [[AwesomeArt is nice]], and all the classic songs are still there.
* WhatAnIdiot: Kralahome, who constantly contradicts his own plans to take the throne and ultimately outs himself in attempting to kill the king and his son.
** Arguably, the rest of the cast for not recognizing such an obvious villain or even his magical machinations.
