Funny / The Swan Princess

The Swan Princess
  • King William and Queen Uberta singing about how the young Odette and Derek are getting along, oblivious to what's going on behind them. While they're singing, it's obvious that the kids are definitely not getting along.
  • Derek's ingenious answer to Odette's asking if he likes her for more than just her looks.
    Odette: Is beauty all that matters to you?
    Derek: (stammers) ...What else is there?
    Rogers: (imitates a buzzer while giving a thumbs down)
    • Later Rogers is still no help.
    Rogers: You should write a book: How To Offend Women In Five Syllables or Less.
  • Odette's response to Rothbart's (rather lame) most recent marriage proposal. And his response to her answer.
    Odette: Every night you ask the same question. And every night I give you the same answer...
    Rothbart: DON'T!
    Odette: ...I'll die first.
    Rothbart: You know... you are really starting to bug me!
    Odette: I would think you'd be use to it by now.
    Rothbart: That's it! Just keep pushin' it! But someday, I'm gonna BOIL OVER!!!
  • "No more Mr. Nice Guy. Not for me..."
  • When, after Jean-Bob finally gets a kiss from Odette. And thinking he's now a handsome prince (though he isn't, of course) goes to the celebrations. And gets screamed at for his troubles.
    • This becomes a Brick Joke in the second film. When Jean-Bob is accidentally turned into a prince, he looks just like this prince.
  • Jean-Bob attempting to get the flowers on the other side of the lake for Odette. There's even this line from Speed right before he goes swinging into the gators.
    Speed: Just curious: how are you gonna get back?
    Jean-Bob: (Oh, Crap! face, before the stick starts swinging)
  • The musical sequence for 'Practice, Practice, Practice' involves the servants dressing up as animals. Hilarity Ensues.
    • Special mention goes to this little gem:
    • Rogers ordering the musicians to act more like animals by growling and snarling - and only the guy dressed as a rabbit responds.
    "Not you, Wesley, you're a rrrrabbit!"
    • The musicians bitching about having to do it.
    Leader: Lord Rogers, I must protest! We are musicians, not animals!
    Rogers: The servants had the day off, we had to use someone!
    Leader: I am an ARTIST, not a BOAR!
    Rogers: *muttering* Coulda fooled me...
  • This was a rather subtle moment, but, earlier Bridget had been seen nursing an infatuation with the Chamberlain during Rothbart's Villain Song. When Bridget shows up as the fake Odette to Uberta's ball, she winked at the Chamberlain as she walked in. She was flirting with him.
  • This line from Jean-Bob:
  • During the 'Princesses On Parade' number, we see a few princesses from different kingdoms: one with a cotton dress decked out in ears of corn (apparently she made it herself), Antonia, who shoves two other girls out of her way and does a cartwheel/backflip combo when greeting Derek, Brizzelda, who blows kisses to people and sends Derek into a dizzying spin while shaking his hand, and then Brunhilde, a princess whose dress in made entirely of heavy armor. When she slides off her equally armored horse, there is an audible clang! beneath the music.
  • During the final showdown between Rothbart and Derek, Puffin realizes that Derek needs his bow. So he grabs Jean-Bob and hurls him, screaming, into the lake to retrieve it.

Escape From Castle Mountain
  • Uberta throttling Clavius once he reveals that he kidnapped her.
    • "Take me to Derek or I'll throw you out like a jar of bad mayonnaise!"
  • When she gets off the balloon, she makes his servant walk five steps behind her - determined to be treated like a queen even if she is a prisoner. And you can see him trying to keep count of the steps as she walks to her cell.
  • Uberta also tries to get him to make her cucumber sandwiches and peppermint tea. Clavius naturally refuses.
    Cut to outside the volcano.
    • This gets a Call-Back when Clavius finds her getting his servant to redecorate her cell.
    Uberta: What's going on? You haven't been excused. Gifts need to be wrapped. The cake needs to be frosted.
    Cut to the volcano.
  • Uberta is a gold mine when she's opening her birthday cards. Mentioning her age appears to be a Berserk Button.
    "So you're turning fif...well I've got a number for you buddy - eighty six!"
  • As Derek gets on his horse to rescue his mom, ignoring Bromley and Rodgers' protests that he can't go alone.
    Derek: The ransom note says I have to come alone. If I don't, he'll attack Mother's kingdom.
    Bromley: Don't worry, Derek. If anything happens, my quiver is full.
    Rodgers: You mean you're filled with quivering, don't you?
  • Puffin keeps saying for Jean-Bob to have "no fear", and at the very end, after being sick of that Catch-Phrase, Jean-Bob just grabs his beak and growls, "Quiet, or I'll rip your beak off!"
  • Jean Bob, Puffin, Speed and swan!Odette breaking Uberta out of her cell.
    Uberta: I'm being rescued by little animals? Oh, well, I'll go with it.
  • Jean-Bob accidentally being turned into a prince and back into a frog. No one he tells this to later believes him.

The Mystery of the Enchanted Kingdom
  • "Dear Muffin, I hate you. Love, Pumpkin."
    • From the same scene: "Now, shape up, or I'll pop ya one!"
  • As Odette and co. are trying to escape from Zelda's fireball seeker, she hands carriage reins to Jean-Bob.
    • As the seeker gains on them, and to make things worse, the carriage is headed straight for a cliff!
    Jean-Bob: I don't like my options!
    Odette: Everybody out!
    Jean-Bob: I still don't like my options!
  • Zelda uses Whizzer's beak to pick the lock on the chest.
  • Zelda later writes Derek a ransom note - using Whizzer as the pen. The note itself is rather funny due to the countless times she uses the Punctuated! For! Emphasis! trope.
    "Dear Prince Derek, I have kidnapped your sweet Odette, PERIOD!
    If you want to see her alive again, COMMA!, then meet me at the mouth of the western river with the missing section of Rothbart's notes!
  • Zelda lampshading Derek's stupidity when she disguises herself as Odette.
    "You always fall for that fake Odette trick, don't you?"

The Swan Princess Christmas
  • This exchange
    Jean-Bob: The chances of me being kissed and turned back into a prince on Christmas are almost...ZIP!
    Speed: (chuckles) Down to the usual one in a million.
  • The Ghost of Rothbart and Number 9 the cat are trying to come up with an idea to destroy Christmas. Number 9 keeps coming up with totally absurd ideas. Rothbart is not impressed to say the least.
    Number 9: How's this? The little chef make him make bad decisions with all his little Christmas creations! (imagines the Chef throwing the cake in Bromley's face)
    Rothbart: You call that an idea?
    Number 9: Okay, how 'bout this one? Christmas cheer makes the frog go berserk! (imagines Jean-Bob ripping a Christmas wreath off Speed's neck, then knocking the turtle on his back and spinning him like a top)
    Rothbart: I've got better ideas in my elbow!
    Number 9: How 'bout this? Christmas gifts. Odette; she's got incredibly bad taste. (imagines Odette giving Derek a gift and he opens it to reveal a bright pink bow and arrow; Derek gives a forced smile)
    Rothbart: I can't cast a spell on Derek and Odette! They've got too much Christmas spirit! Come on, Number 9!
    Number 9: You said there were no bad ideas!
    Rothbart: There ain't! But there sure are a lot of lousy ones!
  • When Odette is preparing to sing to Uberta and Rodgers.
    Odette: Wish me luck.
    Jean-Bob: If it goes well, tell them it was my idea. If it goes bad, tell them it was his idea. (points at Puffin)

A Royal Family Tale
  • When Alise is confirmed to lack any living relatives, and thus, be free and clear for adoption, Derek is so happy that he confuses his nouns. "I'm going to be a mom! I mean, I you're (Odette) going to be a dad! I mean..."
  • When Bridget plays Hide-And-Seek with Alise she seeks like a dog by putting her nose to the ground and sniffing. Onlookers look baffled and suggest someone bring out dog treats.
  • Watching Uberta, Rogers, etc. getting kidnapped by an army of flying squirrels is so ridiculous it's hard not to laugh.

Princess Tomorrow, Pirate Today
  • Rogers bursts into Uberta's chambers exclaiming how dare she compare him to a pirate! This is while he is wearing an eyepatch, has a megaphone stuck on his leg peg-leg style, carrying the end of a spear like a saber and is standing on a cannon.
  • The extended Hell's Kitchen joke where Rogers acts like a G-rated Gordan Ramsay, complete with insults, spitting out food that doesn't meet his standards, kicking chefs out of the "kitchen" for disrespecting him. He does this while tied up (even hitting the boggs with the pole he's tied to) and even though they're going to eventually cook and eat him. There are even cutaways for the boggs interview style where they comment as if they really were competitors but also not, i.e. "I'm honored to learn from Chef, and also to eat him".
