Funny: Sleeping Beauty

The Disney film

  • After Prince Philip and Princess Aurora/Briar Rose have met and done their little dance/duet, the way Prince Philip then asked "Who are you?", and in such a casual manner, is hilarious. Her reaction is even better. She sounds so surprised.
  • Every time Merryweather tries to get a piece of Maleficent, only for Flora to pull her back.
  • The following exchange between Flora and Fauna:
    Fauna: [propping up a sagging 15-layer cake with a broom handle] Well, what do you think of it?
    Flora: Well, it's...it's a very unusual cake, isn't it?
    Fauna: Yes... [the cake frosting begins to flow down the broomstick, taking the lit candles with it, and Fauna scrambles to put them back on top] Of course, it'll be much stiffer after it's baked!
  • The blue-pink color fight between Flora and Merryweather, particularly when Maleficent's pet raven looks in the chimney to investigate the commotion and then gets shot in the face and the rear.
    • Plus the part after the aforementioned color fight when Aurora's dress gets turned into a Picasso.
    Flora: [to Merryweather] Now look what you've done!
    • This entire scene with the Good Fairies is made of CMOFs.
  • Phillip's exchange with his father:
    Philip: Now, Father, you're living in the past. This is the fourteenth century!
  • The good fairies stirring their tea with their magic wands. Okay, fine, there's Mundane Utility, but some of the most powerful objects in the world being used in such a manner is just funny.
  • Fauna's ditziness is always good for a laugh.
    Fauna: (reading recipe for a cake) "Two eggs, fold in gently." ...fold? [shrugs, then folds in two eggs— shell and all]
    • Her shocked expression when she hears the crunch really sells it. She knows something's wrong.
  • And later...
    Fauna: Yeast, one tsp. [pronounces as "tisp"] Tsp?
  • The fairies attempt to make a dress, with Merryweather as the "dummy". It's all in Flora's deadpan delivery:
    Merryweather: It looks awful.
    Flora: That's because it's on you, dear.
    • By the time Flora finishes the dress, it looks as short and plump as Merryweather instead of tall and thin, the sleeves have become too skinny for Merryweather to stick her arms into, and color-clashing pins and ribbons remain visible against the pink fabric. Merryweather looks utterly miserable while modeling it.
  • King Stefan and King Hubert having a drink. And then starting to have a brief argument (complete with Hubert using a fish as a weapon), which quickly dies and replace with laughter. During the scene, the minstrel sneaks a drink for himself a few times, and ends up drunk. By the end, he's passed out under the table, with his head stuck in the guitar. Try to keep a straight face as he snores in that thing!
    • After Hubert and Stefan's "fight" with the fish, Hubert sheathes it in his belt like a sword!
  • Apparently, in the search for Aurora, Maleficent's goons hunted for a baby for 16 years. Even Maleficent seemed to find it funny... at first.
    Maleficent: FOOLS! IDIOTS! IMBECILES! OUT! OUT! OUT! (blasts her minions with lightning bolts with each word, blasts them some more, then heaves an exasperated sigh while sitting upon her throne) Oh, they're hopeless! A disgrace to the forces of evil!
  • When King Hubert sees Phillip and Aurora together at the end and gets so utterly confused, as he'd been told that his son was marrying a peasant girl. He eventually just goes with it.
  • Flora and Merryweather again fighting over the colour of the dress while Phillip and Aurora dance.
    Flora: I do too... [gasps in horror] Blue! [waves her wand] Pink!
    Merryweather: [is happily enjoying the dance, then sees the dress is changed to pink and points her wand] Blue!
    • Even funnier, is how did Flora not notice the colour change before? Besides the fact that they were busy saving the kingdom...
    • The pink/blue war continues even after the camera "pulls back" to a still picture of Aurora and Phillip in a storybook.
  • This exchange between the fairies:
    Merryweather: I'd like to turn her [Maleficent] into a fat ol' hop toad.
    Fauna: Now, dear, that isn't a very nice thing to say.
    Flora: Besides, we can't. You know our magic doesn't work that way.
    Fauna: It can only do good, dear, to bring joy and happiness.
    Merryweather: Well, that would make me happy.
  • Two words: "No carrots!"
    • In his first introduction as an adult, Prince Philip asks his horse what that singing voice was. The horse rolls his eyes like he's saying "how should I know?".
  • When discussing Maleficent's seeming to know everything:
    Fauna: Oh, but she doesn't, dear. Maleficent doesn't know anything about love, or kindness, or the joy of helping others. You know, sometimes I don't think she's really very happy.
  • As the fairies go hide in preparation for surprising Aurora, Flora points out one sign of magic they still need to hide:
    Flora: Good gracious! Who left the mop running?
    Merryweather: [pointing her wand at the mop] Stop, mop!
    • Note that the cleanup music suddenly starts again after Flora notices the mop still cleaning, then ceases after Merryweather makes the mop fall back to the ground.
  • Merryweather having to put the minstrel to sleep.
  • The fact that Maleficent of all people apparently likes to send frosts that ruin Flora's flowers when the mood strikes her.
  • The German dub of the movie. Instead of a straightforward translation the scriptwriter opted for emphasising the "three bickering old ladies" aspect of the three fairies, partly through the choice of words, partly by adding additional lines spoken from the off. For example at one point Flora talks about Maleficent as if she is a woman of questionable reputation ("Ich kenn doch diese Sorte von Frau!"), and when Merryweather has to gather all her power for her gift, Fauna remarks from the off "Kräftig genug bist du ja." (Loosely translated: "After all, you are built sturdy enough for it."). Those little touches make the fairies just more hilarious.
  • Aurora's face when she realizes it's not the owl she's dancing with. To top it off is the owl's very sheepish shrug and embarrassed who-ing, as if he's giving an embarrassed chuckle.
  • Philip asks Aurora when he can see her again. Her answers escalate rather quickly.
    Aurora: Oh, never. Never!
    Philip: Never!?
    Aurora: Well, maybe someday.
    Philip: When? Tomorrow?
    Aurora: Oh no. This evening. At the cottage in the glen.
