Comically Missing the Point: Cinderella gently accuses her council for the Spring Festival of this in "A Tall Tail". One of the members suggests moving it to Summer, and another proposes forbidding children from attending. After Cinderella reminds them that it wouldn't become a Spring Festival, or a way to entertain the children, all the Yes-Men in the council support her.
Cool Crown: At the end of "Aim to Please", Cinderella is given a glass tiara.
Description Cut: In "Aim to Please", just after Cinderella worries that she has no idea how to plan a royal banquet, the prince assures her he'll stay by her side. The very next scene opens with him protesting that he and the king are to be abruptly sent on a trip.
Distaff Counterpart: Pom Pom, the cat who lives at the palace, is the female equivalent of Lucifer.
Early-Bird Cameo: The baker makes a brief appearance in "Aim to Please", before getting more focus as Anastasia's love interest in "An Uncommon Romance".
Easily Forgiven: During "An Uncommon Romance", Cinderella holds no ill will towards Anastasia for all her antagonism, actually helping her to get together with the baker.
Eek, a Mouse!!: During the climax of "Tall Tail", Jaq chooses to be turned back into a mouse so he can scare a rampaging elephant.
Going to the Store: During "An Uncommon Romance", before Anastasia goes to meet the baker again, she grabs some bread from the pantry, throws it out the window (right on Drizella's head, even), and tells Lady Tremaine that she has to go to town and buy some more bread.
Hot Librarian: Prudence, in the eyes of the Grand Duke and her fans.
Hugh Mann: Almost literally in "Tall Tail"; Human!Jaq's attempt to say "I'm human!" to Cinderella gets interrupted and causes people to think he's "Sir Hugh".
Idiot Ball: In "Tall Tail", the Fairy Godmother forgets her magic words just before Jaq is about to be trampled by an elephant. As in "bibbidi-bobbidi-boo", the only magic words she uses.
Imagine Spot: Anastasia has a brief one of her and the baker waltzing at one point in "An Uncommon Romance", which eventually comes true.
Impossibly Tacky Clothes: Much like in the page image, Cinderella is forced to wear a rather uncomfortable gown in "Aim to Please".
Ironic Echo Cut: One scene at the start of "Aim to Please" cuts from Prudence informing the King that Cinderella might not know how to plan a royal banquet, to Cinderella admitting to Prince Charming exactly that.
Out of Focus: The film does not show Cinderella's stepfamily until the final story, "An Uncommon Romance".
Palette Swap: Cinderella wears several slightly modified versions of her classic ballgown throughout the movie.
Remember the New Guy: The introduction of Jaq's girlfriend, Mary, as one of Cinderella's closest animal friends can feel a little abrupt, since the first movie referred to none of the female mice by name. (Books about Cinderella characters refer to two of them as Suzy and Perla, but still don't mention a Mary.)
Sealed with a Kiss: "Aim to Please" ends with Cinderella and Prince Charming kissing while seated on their thrones, with a heart-shaped Iris Out closing over them.
Third-Act Misunderstanding: Anastasia sees what she believes to be the baker giving flowers to another woman. Fortunately, they are Just Friends; he was just asking her if the flowers would make a good gift for Anastasia.
