YMMV / Magical Princess Minky Momo

  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: The infamous truck scene.
    • In one episode of the second series, the Fenarinarsa Momo asks the other Momo about her pets. Then, a musical number where the pets sing about their personalities plays, and after this, the episode resumes.
  • Ear Worm: The original TV series theme song, "Love, Love, Minky Momo," sung by Momo's first voice actress, Mami Koyama.
    • The second ending theme of the second series, Suki Yori Daisuki Minky Smile.
  • Macekre: La Ronde in my dream was adapted by Harmony Gold and Carl Macek. Most of the dialogue is altered and the opening scene is moved to the end and becomes a dream sequence, but the overall plot remains the same.
  • Moe: Considered by some to be the first moe anime.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Series planner Takeshi Shudo and director Kunihiko Yuyama later went on to have the same roles in the Pokémon anime.
    • Several elements in scripts Shudo wrote for Pokemon are recycled from Minky Momo. "The Ghost of Maiden's Peak" noticeably contains many of the same elements as The Bridge Over Dreams, and Pokémon: The First Movie has a similar ending to La Ronde in my dream.
